I’m sorry, but what is the opposite of oral?

anal? 

What kind of test is this

WRITTEN. Lol my kids would tell you you’re “thinking negative.” Me? I always feel weird when I tell them they’re going to have an oral presentation.

Consumer Alert - Trojan Fire & Ice Condoms

Upon examining a Trojan Fire & Ice condom, I immediately noticed something was very wrong.

I always knew there was something wrong with these. I recommend their combo packs to all my friends, but always say “avoid Fire and Ice!” I didn’t realize how dangerous they were though!

When Stuyvesant says that women’s dress and bodies are distraction in a learning environment, for example, what they’re really saying is that they’re distracting to male students. The default student we are concerned about - the student whose learning we want to ensure is protected - is male. Never mind how “distracting” it is to be pulled from class, humiliated, and made to change outfits - publicly degrading young women is a small price to pay to make sure that a boy doesn’t have to suffer through the momentary distraction of glancing at a girl’s legs. When this dentist in Iowa can fire his assistant for turning him on - even though she’s done absolutely nothing wrong - the message again is that it’s men’s ability to work that’s important.



And when rape victims are blamed for the crime committed against them, the message is the same: This is something that happened to the perpetrator, who was driven to assault by a skirt, or a date, or the oh-so-sexy invitation of being passed out drunk. Women have infringed on their right to exist without being turned on. (Ta-Nehisi Coates describes this centering of male sexual vulnerability quite well.) Our very presence is a disruption of the male status quo.

From my latest at The Nation, “Asking For It” (via shittyweekend)

I’ll never forget the day I almost failed a quiz because immediately prior to it my teacher publicly shamed me for my outfit. Several students called me a slut and instead of addressing that, she chose to give a “general anonymous announcement” that she was going to start enforcing the dress code. I told her I had another shirt I could put on and there was a chorus of “THANK YOU” from the men in the class, again unaddressed. And then during the quiz, she asked me if I had left the house wearing what I was wearing (I absolutely had, not with the extra shirt on). It still makes me so angry and it was years before I could wear shorts again. I am at a uniform school now but last year I was not, and I told one of my professors I would never, ever enforce a dress code. He got really defensive but I never said anything to anyone except the boy who wore a “Make Me a Sandwich” shirt. Ugh.

After “Seeing Red”, I had nightmares for weeks. It just really terrified me and proved me that the Spike without a soul loves her. 

Holy fucking everything why wasn’t this trigger warned?! Rape IS NOT LOVE. How can we love this feminist show and then apologize for rapists?!

This is (one reason) why I love the internet.

One time when I was younger (but significantly older than this child lol), I left my bear in a hotel in Colorado. I wrote them a letter saying I’d lost it and they sent him back with cookies “in case the bear got hungry.” I love that everyone can relate to the love of a child and their stuffed animals so profoundly. It seems to be universal. <3

#black father supremacy

everyone needs to know this.

It’s important to realize that many of the biases that we have and that are reinforced by people in positions of power are baseless.

I see so many more fathers with children where I work in Harlem than I do where I live on the Upper East Side. Always theorized, and now I see it’s true!
