Michael needs to get out more.: Rape culture. →
iwillnotshavemyvagina: michaelneedstogetoutmore: Hello feminists. I get what you’re trying to do. Most of the time I agree with it. Heck, I’d identify as a feminist if not for the stigma. See, I definitely believe that equal rights are important, but any demand that special concessions be made for women is counter-productive: it still… I disagree. You don’t understand rape culture. “We...

Palin Crossed the border for Canadian Health Care →
babywipesenthusiast: Now, it doesn’t say when she did this. Was it when she was a child? Was it when she was an adult and had the choice? The point is, obviously at some point in time the health care avaliable to her in the U.S. was not affordable or adequate enough for her or her family, so she went to Canada. Why am I not surprised?

Hurm. Must investigate further.
You should all be ashamed of yourselves. You’re pathetic, and what’s wrong with the feminist movement today. You marginalize people because of your own insecurities, and supply endless ammunition to social conservatives by acting exactly like the straw feminists they accuse you of being.
