I just think every driver should read this.
Too many people are oblivious to these facts, mainly because they’ve never been in or driven a truck hauling horses.
what have you even destroyed dog this doesn’t make sense
Blinds. Window blinds.
(it’s not just sexual people)
Anon, what you have to understand is that asexual as an orientation is NOT the only definition. It is a rather new meaning. For a long time asexual just meant that you had no sex drive and therefore no sexual interests. Changing the meaning fits it into the pattern of -sexual, but there’s going to be a large pushback from people who are used to the old definition (and people who think the new definition seems much too rare and specific to overrule a much more common occurrence).
This is something I’ve seen many self-described asexuals argue about. This isn’t something “sexuals” just don’t understand and it isn’t something that can be solved with frustration. It may just be semantics but it clouds a topic that previously was very clear.
if anyone deserves to be called a “slut” its people who unapologetically cheat on their partners
No one deserves to be called a slut.
Cheaters need to be called cheaters
A woman who sells her body for sex is promiscuous not a slut
A woman who dances for men as entertainment is an entertainer not a slut
Please understand this
K, but none of those others were mentioned. If you cheat unapologetically, you’re a slut. A slut is literally a person that sleeps around on their partner.
Sorry if this sounds harsh, but it’s true and if anyone cheats on their partner and isn’t the least bit sorry, I’m calling them a slut.
People are trying to give the word “slut” so much power. “Nobody should be called a slut.” Wow calm down, buddy, it is not the N-word. Not even close.
I thought the whole point of being anti-slut shaming was reclaiming the word slut, not giving it more power.
And from what I understand, slut just referred to a promiscuous person, usually a woman. The whole “slut power!” thing was about women not being ashamed of having lots of sex, if I remember right.
It’s an appeal to authority. It’s the same as arguing that because the pope says so, it’s true and right.
At least the pope only claims authority over Catholics instead of all humans. And has years of training in his religion. Beyoncé’s just a hot rich lady with a powerful singing voice. Even if she was a put upon woman in her youth, she’s… kinda out of that league and has been for a while now.
Just because we have a congress that is majority male, doesn’t mean we have a government rigged towards males. We have laws and a constitution protecting both genders from unfairness and inequality. I’m definitely not saying that women don’t face inequalities in society, because they absolutely do. And I agree, harassment is still a big one. But we should acknowledge that both genders face certain inequalities and disadvantages, not just focus on one.
Harassment on its own is hard to measure. Sure, women report having experienced it more… but that doesn’t mean they’ve actually experienced it more.
When are “allowed” to speak of their discomfort. They are expected to find unsolicited advances unpleasant and are even encouraged to do so. They receive more attention overall so are more likely to find neutral advances negative. The bar for what counts as harassment against a woman is rather flexible, with women able to claim harassment over things like her boss enforcing modest dress codes. They are hyper aware of harassment and as a result can see harassment where none exists.
In contrast, men are looked down on if they speak of a woman making them uncomfortable. They are expected to find unsolicited advances from women as flattering and can have their sexuality questioned if they don’t agree. They receive less attention and are more likely to find any attention as good attention, even if it’s insulting. They are hypoaware of harassment and are less likely to see it even when they’re on the receiving end.
We are told that men harass women and that the opposite doesn’t happen. Social conditioning can cause people to reinterpret events and memories in a way that matches the dominant script. This WILL effect self-reporting rates in the same way that men are less likely to recognize themselves as being raped*. Add into the situation that people rarely recognize same-sex harassment for what it is and the situation becomes even more muddled.
For just a quick example, back in highschool I was trying to read a girl’s shirt. She accused me of being a perverted lesbian. She likely could have reported it as harassment and been believed. She could self-report as being harassed despite no harassment taking place.
That doesn’t mean harassment doesn’t primarily happen to women. But what it does mean is we can’t trust self-reporting due to a number of factors. For all we know men could be the primary target demographic, however unlikely.
*Men are less likely to call their rapes what they are. One victim explained it as “rape happens to women” with the implication that he just didn’t believe it could happen to men despite it having happened to him. Men with a recorded history of sexual abuse as children are more likely than women in the same situation to have their memories “rewrite” into something socially expected.
Saw this somewhere else and felt the need to post it cause no one else ever really tells you this stuff
My mom never really noticed. She noticed when she was breast feeding my little brother and blood started coming out instead of milk.
My mom said she felt and saw a little lump in the shower. She was lucky enough she found it at stage 2
My mom had a mammogram. The radiologist thought the spots were just regular calcium deposits.
Turns out it was triple negative breast cancer that had spread to her lymph nods. Mastectomy, radiation and chemo saved her life.
This could SAVE a life.
dont be embarrassed to reblog, this post could be life saving
Signal BOOST and pass it on. I had a breast cancer scare before (luckily it was just scar tissue…) and information like this kept me calm and collected at the doc’s.
As a cancer patient myself, who found my own cancer through a supposed LARPing injury last year, i know how scary it is and how important it is to catch it early. Please spread this around!
listen to ur boobs
its all in the boobs
hoW MANY TIMES AM I GOING TO REBLOG THIS ! SORRY FOLLOWERS , #sorrynotsorry
REBLOG,THIS COULD SAVE SOMEBODY!!! DONT BE EMBARRASSED!!!
Even if you’re a guy, reblog this for your female followers.
>even if you’re a guy
Um, excuse me, guys CAN and DO get breast cancer, and many aren’t covered by their insurance because of their birth sex. So guys don’t need to think about it for their gals, they need to think about it for themselves, their gals, and their guys.
Getting mad at people saying “coloured” can also be English-assuming.
Many languages have a format of “[noun] of [adjective]”. When they learn English, they’re often taught to change that to be “[adjective] [noun]” because it’s considered “more correct”. To those without the historical context “people of colour” and “coloured people” seem exactly the same, meaning they wouldn’t initially get that one is taboo and one is not.
I’ve seen people who barely speak English ask what the difference is and been called bigots and oppressive in response. It’s really awful.
I’ve worked in non air conditioned buildings, yes it’s uncomfortable, but you live. I was a teacher so not only could I only wear pants or skirts (skirts don’t mesh well with lower elementary) I was also walking around class. You find ways to deal. (They look dorky, but chilly towels!)
-the Polish one
Maybe it’s just because I live in Canada, but I can’t fathom it being so warm that pants will kill you.
However, I once got in trouble for taking a blanket between classes when the heaters weren’t working in the winter.
And here we have grown ass adults doxxing, bullying and making physical threats and death threats on a 13 year old because he said something they didn’t like on twitter
You feminists, white knights and you SJWs are fucking disgusting, you feel like big women and men doxxing and sending death threats to a 13 year old?
Lowlife pieces of shit.
It’s not even bullying anymlre. They’re threatening the safety of a 13 year old. That’s an actual crime. Like. Conspiracy to commit murder level shit.
One of them is 30, and is currently on twitter whoring out the backlash she got as “omg im so uhpressed” and her cronies are telling her that shes the victim and needs to call the police.
No fucking sympathy. Hope all those assholes who doxxed and threatened this kid get whatever is coming to them legally. How fucking pathetic and infantile are you when you honestly get so butthurt by something a 13 says that you threaten to kill them? They deserve to die alone, like they are currently doing.
It wouldn’t surprise me if the kid was talking about sexist jokes. Or jokes just making fun of the tag. Kinda weird how they just assumed he was talking about rape jokes…
