Apparently, that makes me a weirdo.

Important and informative article. Obvious trigger warnings may apply, but it is well worth the read (and there’s not anything graphic or descriptive, it’s mainly discussion on how we think of our sexual lives and rape, rape apologists, rape culture, and the realities behind those terms).
watch the fat guy version of this video—where it’s a skinny guy turned fat and the girls meet up with him. it goes SO DIFFERENT. they actually talk about things other than his weight, and he even gets kissed.
You suck society
I finally broke down & watched that other video- & none of the women directly call him fat or heavy. They barely address his weight at all & when they do- they move on quickly. & these were all “traditionally attractive” women. All very fit. & they all gave him a proper chance & got to know him; laughing & chatting & even scheduling second dates. What the hell, MEN?! Does a woman’s personality not exist if the number on her jeans is anything more than 10? After 175lbs your sense of humor doesn’t matter anymore? How kind you are is totally irrelevant if you have cellulite & stretch marks.
I hate our shallow society.
don’t you mean
one of these is not like the otters
I actually let out a pleased little squeak when I saw this because ohhh man, that is beautiful.

"The fact that rape threats are a thing says a lot about how rape isn’t a lapse in self-control but often a tool to punish & control others."

I was discussing Anita Sarkeesian with a girlfriend who was unaware of the details the other day. She was actually curious, but she also wanted to know “what’s the big deal?” In my brief explanation, I mentioned the threats I’ve received over the course of my career (rape and otherwise). And she laughed. And said, “You got rape threats for record reviews? WHY?” I said, “Sometimes because of the way I chose to phrase something. Or for a minor detail not matching his worldview. Or because he didn’t think a woman should be weighing in on a certain artist. Usually, though it was just because the guy didn’t agree with my opinion.”
My friend then said, “Why not just stop? Then you won’t get threats.” She was serious.
I’d like to point out that I haven’t had any steady work writing, editing, and reviewing for a couple of years now, which I mainly attribute to physical health issues and financial barriers, but when she said that—with the tone and belief that it was the obvious solution and I was dumb for not seeing that—I realized I also may have been avoiding something that I loved to do in part because men tried to punish and control me.
See the girl everyone is talking about on the series premiere of Jane The Virgin TONIGHT at 9/8c on The CW!
