I really hate when people play the ‘how come you weren’t outraged about [insert topic here]?’ game.

Some people truly seem content about being a constant source of negativity.

I’m trying to understand why people feel the need to express their disdain for some of the female celebrities that have recently had their nudes leaked. Okay, you don’t like so-and-so’s movies or personality… What does that have to do with their privacy being violated?

"Don’t take a nude pic if you’re a famous woman and don’t want it leaked."

mysharona1987:

"Don’t wear a hoodie if you don’t want to be mistaken for a criminal and shot."

"Don’t get drunk at a party if you don’t want to be sexually assaulted."

"Don’t argue with a cop if you don’t want to get killed."

"Don’t walk home by yourself if you don’t want to get raped."

Victim blaming 101: Everyone should live in fear from ever doing anything.

When did Martin Luther King get transformed from a revolutionary civil rights leader that the FBI feared into a teddy bear that only says “I Have A Dream” when you pull the string?

This bothered me all morning. The idea that I live near people like this has been hanging over me for weeks and has literally leeched the energy and spirit from me. 
But when I went to Google to learn more about what happened, it turned out that the bar was not advertising this. Instead, a customer wrote it and he was then thrown out the bar and banned for life.
The bar owner went on to say that he had a half-black son.

And that they ”drove through Ferguson yesterday and [he] … would be the last person to joke about Michael Brown.”
This alone doesn’t fix things. Someone still wrote those awful things on that sign. But hearing the rest of this story does make me feel a little less terrible.
Because what I really need to see more of right now is proof that people aren’t as awful as I’m starting to believe they are.

I think this recent influx of feminism by way of pop culture is going to come back and bite us in the bums because we don’t want to view things through a critical lens and our stanning gets in the way sometimes. Some of things that we allow to fly and pass as feministic empowering acts in the realm of pop culture would look funny in the light when done by the average woman. I occasionally wonder what we stand to gain by adamantly affirming concepts that we would otherwise deem questionable in day-to-day life.
