Knowledge is a seed; sow it.
And that’s not all. 43% of college men will admit to using “coercive behavior” to have sex with a woman… which of course is also rape.
Rape culture trains sociopaths.
this is good to have. I always want these studies and I always have trouble finding them via google.
Because telling fat people that they are in fact humans that deserve dignity and respect automatically means you’re ~*GLORIFYING OBESITY*~
By the way, don’t dribble on to me saying you worry about a fat person’s ‘health’. That’s just a bullshit excuse to voice your unwanted opinion on a fat person’s body considering you wouldn’t give a single flying fuckadoodle about someone’s health if they were skinny. Besides another person’s health is none of your damned business anyway. Run along now and preach to a choir that actually cares.
I’m going to be honest, so long as you’re not hurting anyone, you can eat soy sauce and milk duds all day long for all I care.
thank you so much for this comic imp.
Be a trans* ally & help fight transphobia & cissexism
1. Use the term ‘cisgender’ when referring to non-trans* individuals, rather than transphobic words like “normal,” which imply that trans* individuals are abnormal, weird, ill, or broken.
2. Do not use transphobic slurs, such as “tra-ny” or “shemale.” These words are intended to insult and harm trans* individuals.
3. Always use the name any individual gives you. Do not ask someone what their “real” name is. (Their desired name is their real name.)
4. Always use the desired pronouns of an individual. If you are unsure which pronoun to use, politely and privately ask the individual what their preferred pronouns are.
5. Do not claim someone’s gender identity as false, nonexistent, immoral, or a result of an illness or trauma.
6. Do not ask questions regarding someone’s anatomy, or question if they have transitioned or will be transitioning in the future.
7. Do not ask to see the photographs of a person before they transitioned. Likewise, do not ask invasive, personal questions of a person regarding their life before they transitioned.
8. Never out a trans* individual to others. Likewise, do not ask others if “so-and-so is transgender.”
9. Do not assume an individual’s sexual orientation due to their trans* identity.
I think that the responsible thing to do when a person who is questioning their sexuality comes to an asexual-spectrum resource blog is to give them asexual-spectrum resources, because if they are asexual-spectrum they may find them helpful, and if they are not asexual-spectrum, it will help them gain more certainty about their what sexuality isn’t.
Giving people information about asexuality, gray asexuality and demisexuality does not harm anyone.
And if the person is young, it doesn’t hurt anyone to tell them “You are never, ever required to have sex, and you are a complete person without that.” When I first encountered the asexual community as a teen, I found it immensely and overwhelmingly powerful to learn that I could be a complete person without ever having sex.
If a young person turns out to be mistaken and isn’t actually asexual-spectrum, encountering the community will not have harmed them because the community encourages critical self-examination. No one who has figured out they are not actually asexual-spectrum has ever been ostracized from finding community with asexual-spectrum people.

I don’t know when I first became a skeptic. It must have been around age 4, when my mother found me arguing with another child at a birthday party: “But how do you know what the Bible says is true?” By age 11, my atheism was so widely known in my middle school that a Christian boy threatened to come to my house and “shoot all the atheists.” My Christian friends in high school avoided talking to me about religion because they anticipated that I would tear down their poorly constructed arguments. And I did.
As I set off in 2008 to begin my freshman year studying government at Harvard (whose motto isVeritas, “Truth”), I could never have expected the change that awaited me.
It was a brisk November when I met John Joseph Porter. Our conversations initially revolved around conservative politics, but soon gravitated toward religion. He wrote an essay for the Ichthus, Harvard’s Christian journal, defending God’s existence. I critiqued it. On campus, we’d argue into the wee hours; when apart, we’d take our arguments to e-mail. Never before had I met a Christian who could respond to my most basic philosophical questions: How does one understand the Bible’s contradictions? Could an omnipotent God make a stone he could not lift? What about the Euthyphro dilemma: Is something good because God declared it so, or does God merely identify the good? To someone like me, with no Christian background, resorting to an answer like “It takes faith” could only be intellectual cowardice. Joseph didn’t do that.
you are literally a fucking idiot people do not fit into petri dishes an embryo is basically a collection of cells and the whole POINT of that pro choice post was to show that there is AN OBVIOUS AND BLATANT difference between a baby and a zygote you prototypical teen blogger, arrogant, and vacuous fool.
I’m sorry, though my stance on the issue is clear, I do try and make a point to refute the logical fallacies rather than the issue at hand, or the character of the person making the argument- the same, I’m afraid, cannot be said for you.
As for these accusations against my character:
- I have no mental illness or learning disability, making your words both incorrect AND ableist- nice.
- I’m fairly certain I am not the first blogger on this site, nor the first teen.
- I’m 23- wrong again
- Yeah, I’ll give you this one. It comes with the voice part. ;)
- Awesome, the ability to think makes me vacant and empty-headed, sure, that makes sense.
Here’s a test:
I’m holding a baby in one hand and a petri dish holding a fetus in the other.
I’m going to drop one. You chose which.
If you really truly believe a fetus is the same thing as a baby, it should be impossible for you to decide. You should have to flip a coin, that’s how impossible the decision should be.
Shot in the dark, you saved the baby.
Because you’re aware there’s a difference.
Now admit it
because you are killing a human being either way
that’s like asking a parent to choose between saving their med student child or their drug problem child - they may pick the one more ‘developed’ or ‘likely to survive’- but it would still be fucking difficult if not impossible
or it’s like in the Dark Knight where the Joker instructs a boatful of escapees and a boatful of inmates to kill or be killed
they’re still all people
Everyone please repeat after me:
You can be genderfluid and not appear androgynous
You do not have to wear your gender/genderfluidity/agender in a socially acceptable manner only.
You do not have to meet other peoples standard of what your gender looks/acts/sounds like.
