That amended statement is more powerful than the original because it doesn’t stereotype or exclude any group of people.

you people literally cannot stand anything not being about you, can you 

Wait, "THE SAFETY OF TRANS PEOPLE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE COMFORT OF CIS PEOPLE” isn’t about CIS people? I mean really, you guys describe CIS people as a threat, that makes it about CIS people.

You’re a whole lot of bricks short of a full load…

!!!SPOILERS!!! My wife and I went to a Lucy and Hercules double feature tonight !!!SPOILERS!!!

My opinion on Lucy: REVELATION - she’s Dr. Manhattan’s sister, and in the end she discovers that the answer is 42 (for those who don’t know: google Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy to know what ‘42’ means, LOL). I came to see a high-IQ movie and in my opinion I wasn’t disappointed. For the dumb folks they threw in an adequate amount of (irrelevant) gunfights and explosions.

My opinion on Hercules: I came expecting a room temperature IQ movie with a lot of action. What I got was a movie whose IQ level was twice that. For those of you who are Star Wars fans, watch for a shout out near the very end of the movie.

using the phrases “man up” and “be a man” to mean “act like an adult” or “be tough” is pretty silly because men are literal babies

that’s rich coming from someone whose too stupid to know what “literally” means 

This type of word using can actually be very harmful to a man’s emotional development. At a very young age, men are taught that the only acceptable emotion to have is anger, because any other emotion is feminine and bad.  That’s why a lot of grown men can be emotionless robots.


Radical feminists - the ones who control the mainstream thrust of the movement - would say to Anna “GREAT!!! Can we find other ways to abuse males, too? MALE TEARS AHURHURHUR”

For example:

Anonymous asked: I respect your right to say what ever you wish to say but don't you think calling Amanda Todd a slut is a little too far even if you were trolling? She was a young teenage girl who made some poor decisions and it ended up costing her her life. I don't agree with that stupid kid who keeps spamming your Facebook page but come on it's just sort of in bad taste to call a teenage girl who committed suicide a slut. At least that's what I think.


thats it. im done.

I was poor, but a GOP die-hard: How I finally left the politics of shame

I hated government — even as it was the only thing trying to save me. Here’s how, one day, I finally saw the light

I was a 20-year-old college dropout with no more than $100 in the bank the day my son was born in 1994.  I’d been in the Coast Guard just over six months. Joining the service was my solution to a lot of problems, not the least of which was being married to a pregnant, 19-year-old fellow dropout.  We were poor, and my overwhelming response to poverty was a profound shame that drove me into the arms of the people least willing to help — conservatives.

Just before our first baby arrived, my wife and I walked into the social services office near the base where I was stationed in rural North Carolina. “You qualify for WIC and food stamps,” the middle-aged woman said.  I don’t know whether she disapproved of us or if all social services workers in the South oozed an understated unpleasantness.  We took the Women, Infants, Children vouchers for free peanut butter, cheese and baby formula and got into the food stamp line.

Looking around, I saw no other young servicemen.  Coming from the white working class, I’d always been taught that food stamps were for the “others” — failures, drug addicts or immigrants, maybe — not for real Americans like me.  I could not bear the stigma, so we walked out before our number was called.

Even though we didn’t take the food stamps, we lived in the warm embrace of the federal government with subsidized housing and utilities, courtesy of Uncle Sam.  Yet I blamed all of my considerable problems on the government, the only institution that was actively working to alleviate my suffering. I railed against government spending (i.e., raising my own salary).  At the same time, the earned income tax credit was the only way I could balance my budget at the end of the year.

I felt my own poverty was a moral failure.  To support my feelings of inadequacy, every move I made only pushed me deeper into poverty.  I bought a car and got screwed on the financing.  The credit I could get, I overused and was overpriced to start with.  My wife couldn’t get or keep a job, and we could not afford reliable day care in any case.  I was naive, broke and uneducated but still felt entitled to a middle-class existence.

The Silence: The Objectification and Sexual Degradation of Men



Considering that this is DailyKos, it’s safe to assume that this woman is a feminist. One of the ones who should be running the movement…

don’t forget that it was the daily kos who was the first that claimed that elliot rodger was an MRA

i’d watch yourself with ideological hacks like them

Oh I know about them. That makes it even more amazing that this also came from them.

Anonymous asked: I don't know who Ayn Rand is. Should I change that or just let it lie?




Imagine the baby that would result from a night of passion between Ebenezer Scrooge (before the spirits changed his ways) and Mr. Krabs from Spongebob. Now imagine that baby grew up and married the baby that would result from a night of passion between Yzma from the Emperor’s New Groove and Mr. Burns from the Simpsons. Now imagine the newlyweds had a baby of their own, and that baby was raised aboard a Ferengi Starship, where she was tutored in empathy and compassion by Lord Voldemort. Now imagine that baby grew up and someone told her that any opinions she might have or conclusions she might reach are based on objective logic and reason, and that anyone who disagrees with her is simply being irrational. Now multiply that person’s greed and heartlessness by 100 and you’ll begin to see something that comes close to resembling Ayn Rand.

Now imagine that right as she was going to completely take over a whole political movement, she was usurped and banished from it by a dapper former CIA officer turned prolific writer, popular speaker and talk show host. This man, William, had the foresight to know that later generations would classify her as someone of non-existent morals and even more questionable positions on all aspects of life.

jesus christ if you really think someone is so unworthy of merit then why are you afraid of her to the point of humiliating her just to prevent people from reading what she has to say 

Because people tend to die of boredom after reading John Galt’s 70-plus page rant that Ayn Rand called a manifesto.

We’re saving lives here, man
