Barnes and Noble bookstore is selling drones

Is smacking “white” “cis” “Western” “imperialist” or “middle-class” onto the word “feminists” supposed to convince me to not listen to those feminists about, like, prostitution and stuff? Why? What’s not ad hominem about it?

Is the adjective “white” a word referring a political strategy for economic gain to be abolished or is it a convenient pejorative white folks throw in against whoever holds views we would rather not honestly engage with?

Elizabeth Warren Finally Speaks on Israel/Gaza, Sounds Like Netanyahu - The Intercept

"The Israeli army is independent in the way it’s controlling all of Israeli society. The Israeli media, the Israeli court—everybody is working underneath the army censorship. Nobody can publish anything in Israel—of course, not researchers—and I’m not talking only on TV or radio or newspaper; I’m talking on bloggers in the Internet. Nobody can publish anything if it doesn’t go through the IDF censorship, the same IDF censorship that censored crimes for years under the occupation of the Palestinians in Palestine. And now they want us to come to them, to be silenced by them. It’s, of course, ridiculous."

Eran Efrati, former Israeli combat soldier turned anti-occupation activist and investigative researcher

"I’m doing this job for almost five years now, since Operation Cast Lead. I’m collecting testimonies from soldiers. I started in Breaking the Silence, the organization, and moved on independently to take testimonies, collect testimonies from soldiers in the IDF, because I was there as a soldier, and I know that what we get in the mainstream media and what we get in the news is most of the time very far from what’s really going on in the area. In this summer, I was sitting in Jerusalem in my home, and the atmosphere in Israel, the fascist atmosphere in the streets in Jerusalem, and the overall approval of this terrible massacre that happened in Gaza was so overwhelming that I decided to go on down to the border with Gaza and try to speak directly with the soldiers, because I knew that I will get something else from them."

“If a girl is lucky enough to receive any sex education, she will be taught the biological basics. She’ll learn that men have penises and testicles and produce sperm and women have vaginas and uterii and produce ova. She’ll learn that when a man and a woman have sex, the man inserts his penis into the woman’s vagina until he ejaculates. She’ll learn that the semen in the ejaculate will render her vulnerable to pregnancy so she will have to protect herself by using a hormonal or a barrier contraceptive. Hormonal contraception is preferable because barrier methods such as condoms, while safer for women, apparently reduce sensation for men which is obviously a no-no. It’s much better that a woman take a pill every day for her entire reproductive lifespan, or get a painful injection every 12 weeks, or have a copper rod inserted into her uterus, or a silicone rod implanted into her arm. She probably won’t learn that 3 out of 4 women never orgasm from vaginal intercourse. She almost definitely won’t learn how women do achieve orgasm. She’ll learn her place as a receptacle.”

Let Me Slip Into Something A Little Less Comfortable (via yourtinyraindrop)

Feminists bitch and whine when they can get their every birth control free, because z,it has other health benefits” sep when it comes to complain that men don’t like something then it’s oppressive. It’s better birth control then men get. Also I don’t think they are learning how men get orgasms either and I think the 3 of 4 is just plan made up

do you think “antifeministphoenix” types like this to bait for accusation of ableism or what

I can’t imagine that statistic is accurate. I haven’t done any research so I can’t say for sure but I can say as an adult my friends and I do in fact talk about our sex lives and I don’t know this to be true with anyone I’ve spoken to.

"We also ask [U.N. secretary-general Ban Ki-moon] to make sure that all of the United Nations will come united as one U.N. here, because currently the lead in the U.N. is with the what’s called UNODC, which is the U.N. Agency Office for Drug and Crime and trafficking. But drugs is not only about crime and trafficking. Drugs is about health. Drugs is about human rights. Drugs is about HIV/AIDS, TB, hepatitis. Drugs is about development. Drugs is about social coherence and democracy."

"I can’t help the way I feel, and I don’t want to lie about it. I enjoy machismo chest beating, aggression and violence."

"I still don’t understand why so-called progressive sites like The Huffington Post are showing the video while also talking about women’s beach bodies on the side. I don’t understand why Chris Matthews on Hardball showed the video on a loop while they were talking about it."

It’s Not Just Ray Rice: Dave Zirin on the NFL’s History of Condoning Domestic Abuse

"Howard Zinn once said that the first thing we should know about governments is that governments lie. The first thing people should know about the NFL is that the NFL lies. This is a league built on hypocrisy and brain damage, and they want us to believe that they are surprised, absolutely shocked, that some of that violence spilled over into the personal lives of their players. The NFL treats domestic violence as if it is a public relations issue, and their message in this entire story seems to be: If you are going to commit domestic violence, do not get caught on videotape. It is a profoundly cynical message."
