Don’t Be That Guy.
They need one that says “Don’t Be That Girl”, too.
Honestly, rape is mostly committed by men. Focusing on making men more aware makes sense.
what if the pokemon center just sends your pokemon’s medical bills home to your mom and your mom just doesn’t tell you about them because she doesn’t want to burden her 10-15 year old child with the harsh realities of the world of westernized medical care
What if she becomes a meth dealer to pay said bills?
When you discuss the wage gap, here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Only white women make $0.77 to a man’s dollar.
- Black women make about $0.68 to a man’s dollar.
- Latina women make about $0.58 to a man’s dollar.
On that note: I’m assuming the “man’s dollar” here is a white man? What do men of other groups make compared to white men?
Further, why are white men being used as our measuring stick?
Well I didn’t see that coming
the cat WOULD be the one to take action.
I really like how the cat attack the source of the problem.
You stab that motherfucker and you do it well.
Cats will cut a bitch.
If I am ten minutes late to class with Starbucks it would be a funny but benignly sexist joke if I was a white girl, but because I’m a Black girl then it means that I don’t take my education seriously and maybe do not deserve my academic scholarship.
If my grammar in a paper is not impeccable then it’s because I can’t speak “proper” English and maybe I should be in a remedial class and not an English major. If I am struggling in a class then instead of being directed towards a tutor, I will be encouraged to drop the course.
If I do not have a flawless transcript and academic record then I am unlikely to be encouraged to apply for prestigious fellowships and scholarships, even while non-Black classmates who have the same transcript will be funneled into these programs.
To a non-Black person all of this might sound highly improbable or exaggerated. And yet, this is my life. And it’s the life of many other Black students at PWI’s.
And so it’s no wonder that many Black students at PWI’s learn to over-compensate by attempting to excel beyond their classmates. It is no coincidence that many Black students cannot relate to the hegemonic narrative of college in which students party and occasionally attend class all while largely being protected from the “real world.”
College is a microcosm of the real world for Black students who deal with the omnipresent threat of being viewed as not good enough. And even when we excel beyond our classmates, at the end of the day we will be followed by police and harassed and questioned about whether we’re even students.
The scrutiny encourages unhealthy coping mechanisms. Tokenism after all is cumulative of what occurs when white supremacy, perfectionism, and capitalist notions of individualism and the need to be productive all collide and pressure Black folks to forget they’re human like everybody else.

As a white dude the whole stereotype of “can’t speak proper” pisses me off. How many white people say things incorrectly? Plus, it’s bullshit to assume that because someone speaks a particular vernacular some of the time that they can’t speak “proper English.”
I work in a call center, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had agents who spoke “proper English” with me, and vernacular with the insured. Happened all the time.
I dare someone to watch this
im doing it right now
its 30 seconds in and ive already seen a fedora
Isn’t it amazing how a group of adult men can completely take over a show meant for little girls; making it virtually impossible to search or do anything related to the show without being exposed to over-sexualized, misogynistic, sexist crap, and they get a documentary that praises them for stepping outside of their perceived gender roles? Meanwhile 45% of the gaming community is comprised of women and I get dick pics and rape threats if I try and go on xbox live.
Bronies being creeps actually is a big part of why I decided not to watch the show, despite liking the few episodes I saw.
you can’t be a bisexual if you’ve never dated a girl. all bisexuals must submit proof of dating history before becoming fully licensed and must be registered to continue practicing bisexuality. please renew your licence every 5 years to avoid reclassification as hetero- or homosexual and to remain eligible for our annual picnic and raffle.
Part of why I don’t ID as bi. I don’t feel like dealing with the sexual identity police.
