DEAR MEN WHO WANT TO SUPPORT OR BE AN ALLY TO THE FEMINIST MOVEMENT,
WATCH THIS FUCKING VIDEO.
THIS IS HOW YOU SHOULD BEHAVE.
DO NOT DIRECT YOUR ATTENTION, WORDS, OR VITRIOL TOWARD WOMEN. THAT MEANS DO NOT LECTURE WOMEN WHO ARE ALREADY FEMINISTS ABOUT FEMINISM, BECAUSE WE DO NOT CARE, AND DO NOT LECTURE WOMEN WHO ARE NOT FEMINISTS ABOUT FEMINISM, BECAUSE THAT’S NOT YOUR FUCKING PLACE.
IF YOU WANT TO HELP WOMEN, ACT LIKE THIS GUY. CALL OUT OTHER MEN WHEN THEY ARE BEING SHITTY TO WOMEN. CALL OUT BULLSHIT MALE BEHAVIOR AND DERAILING, CALL OUT MISOGYNY, CALL OUT VICTIM BLAMING AND RAPE CULTURE.
WOMEN DO NOT NEED YOU TO TELL THEM ABOUT THEIR OPPRESSION AND TALKING TO WOMEN ABOUT FEMINISM OR TRYING TO INVADE FEMINIST SPACES IS LIKE WALKING INTO A MEETING FOR NATIVE SPEAKERS OF A LANGUAGE AND TRYING TO CORRECT THE PARTICIPANTS ON THEIR GRAMMAR BASED ON YOUR INTRO 101 CLASS.
TALK TO MEN. USE YOUR MALE PRIVILEGE AND THE FACT THAT MISOGYNISTS ONLY RESPECT AND LISTEN TO OTHER MEN TO TRY AND HAMMER SOME OF THIS SHIT INTO THEIR HEADS.
WE APPRECIATE THAT YOU WANT TO HELP. YOUR HELP WILL ONLY BE HELPFUL IF YOU STAY IN YOUR LANE.
Some assholes have been putting nails in cheese and treats in dog parks in Chicago and Massachusetts. Also adding antifreeze to water bowls.
Please watch out for your dogs. And if you find out the address of someone doing this, give me the address and tell no one. I will disembowel them.
Antifreeze is fucking deadly as shit. Whilst my mom worked in the vets office the neighbor of a cat owner had become sick of his neighbors tom spraying by his house so he left antifreeze out for the cat. Animals are weirdly attracted to the smell and will drink it.
The cat was given to the vets and for 2 days it’s insides were slowly dissolved by the acids and it bled from his nose, mouth and even eyes.
On the second day, the vet not being able to help and refusing to let the cat suffer any longer put the cat down. The neighbor who did not deny his crimes didn’t even offer to pay the woman’s vet bill.
SO THE BIGGEST FUCKING SIGNAL BOOST TO THIS POST.
Fuck who ever is doing this. They can fucking burn.
my friend had a cat and it drank antifreeze that was puddled in the driveway and one day they were knitting and it just vomited up all of its internal organs and fell over dead on her lap.
The perpetrators of all of this will burn in Hell.
A neighbor of mine threw a ball of hamburger full of rat poison pellets over our fence for my son’s dog. He survived, barely, but has had nerve damage ever since.
Okay, listen up, if your pet drinks antifreeze, do you know what the cure is? Alcohol. That’s right. To save your furry little friend you have to get them drunk out of their faces. Antifreeze is an inhibitor and stops your enzymes from working, but luckily alcohol stops that from happening. I learned this from my A Level Biology lessons, but here’s a source anyway http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/2617997.stm
Shit this is important SIGNAL BOOST THIS THANK YOU ALICE
Yea it’s clearly our “generation that’s making homosexuality a trend.” Seriously, pisses me off when people say that. look at this! It’s always been around, it’s not a trend, it’s real. It’s beautiful.
These are really beautiful images.
History Lesson: In America from about 1700-1920 there was a social rule that said that women did not have a sex drive. According to men, all women ever were asexual and only ever had sex because their husbands wanted it and as a good doting wife they would open up for him. That said, lesbians flourished in this time! Because it was believed that women did not have sex, when two women would share a house and finances together (called a Boston Marriage, look it up!) nobody thought anything of it. Because clearly they werent homosexuals since clearly women were incapable of being independently sexual. The more you know!
I’ve partnered up with Autostraddle to release the entire Most Important Ugly series of photos that are currently on exhibition at American Two Shot in NYC. Over the next few weeks, I’m going to break down the entire process of these photos — the stories behind the portraits, the theory behind the project, talk a bit about monster culture, queer approaches to makeup, and more. The first post is already up — this was the first portrait we took for the series. I talk more about it on AS. Go check it out.

Lavoisier is having none of your shit.
Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.
Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject.
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.
I LOVE IT
“Starting to root for this guy” as in “They sent me to kill her and I made another call” kind of root for this guy? Did he and Coulson make a deal after the whole whoops-Black-Widow-is-now-an-asset-sorry-Coulson deal where Coulson made Hawkeye promise to tell him when he started rooting for the person he was supposed to shoot in the head? How many times has this been a problem for Hawkeye? Is he, like, known in SHIELD for being the agent who might adopt the target you sent him to kill?
I firmly believe that this is what happened with him and Natasha. Like, Fury gives Clint the order, the next thing he knows Barton’s dragging Natasha in being like BOSS CAN I PLEASE KEEP HER I PROMISE TO CLEAN UP ANY BODY PARTS SHE LEAVES LYING AROUND PLEASE PLEASE PLEEEEEEEEASE
