straight boys think girls can’t take compliments, and that’s ridiculous cause i’ve seen so many girls compliment each other, i’ve seen conversations & friendships blossom from girls complimenting each other in line, on the street, at school waiting for the bys, pretty much anywhere.
the problem is straight boys think sexual harassment & assault are compliments.
you know why so many people hate tumblr activists? because a lot of them fucking suck at communicating correctly.
really? is it really an innate property of a straight male that they think sexual harassment and assault are compliments? where does this apparent right of yours to generalize like an asshole come from? a lot of people on this site and outside of this site read this shit and think ” these people are irrationally anti-straight or anti-white or anti-[group],” and now I realize that they totally should believe that because that’s exactly the sentiment you’re expressing.
This is not about me but let me clarify that I’m not an idiot: I understand that you probably mean something different and are exaggerating, but that’s only because I’m optimistic about it and already into social justice and am familiar with tumblr. I also know that there are plenty of people who would mean exactly what is said in this post, so I can’t truly know if you’re actually a scumbag who hates all straight white men like your post says you do. Someone who can’t tell, however (i.e. the people who actually need to read about those things) might read that and think what the fuck, these people are insane. So, for your sake, and their sake, and everyone’s sake, learn how to use words like ‘some,’ ‘many,’ ‘most,’ and, most importantly, learn that when you say ‘[group]’ without a quantifier in front of it, it probably reads ‘all [group]’ to the average person reading it.
To be fair, this post is a lot less guilty of these things than a lot of other posts I see on a daily basis, but it applies here too. Just be mindful of what you say and how exactly you say it, if you could, it’s not terribly hard to do. Obviously we all make that mistake occasionally, but it’s still good to try to watch for it. Whether you purposely or accidentally play a role in forming someone’s opinion of feminism or any other movement or belief like that, don’t be a shithead and try to play a good one.

WHAT IS WITH PEOPLE FUCKING UP ON THE NEWS AND SAYING “FUCK HER RIGHT IN THE PUSSY”
This was the album of 2013, for sure. If you haven’t listened to it yet you’re missing out, and if screaming is something you don’t like I highly suggest taking the time to get over that. It’s worth it because you get to enjoy music like this.

Really wish these guys would come back to Iowa or go to Minneapolis while I’m there. I saw them a few years ago and it was great! This is the tolerable strain of ‘metalcore’ or whatever (highly produced melodic hardcore if you prefer, who cares anyway), and they do a really great job with it.
In four years of doing math, logic, and computer science I’ve never had to do anything as monotonous as computing conjugacy classes and stabilizers. Truly remarkable how tedious that is. That’s what happens when you get a professor who wants to make the class half-proofs and half-calculation, I guess.
