ardhra: This is relevant to my interests. Ignore the queerphobic comments. BUT THEY ARE SO FUNNY “I will not hug another man let alone kiss them, what ever happened to a good old fashioned hearty hand shake. — Mick from Coburg.” “WTF? Mate, if you kiss another bloke, then you’re either bi or gay, not straight. And no, I wouldn’t hug another bloke (unless...

ilykadamen: quixotess: or boycotts, stuff like the transphobic app on the iPhone or the ex-gay book in WalMart. Let me explain where I’m coming from. I used to work at a grocery store that catered to a liberal middle class demographic, so they carried stuff like all-natural salsa, eco-detergent, and slavery-free chocolate. And they shelved it right next to all the OTHER salsa, laundry...
almond milk in medieval english cookery →
In the Middle Ages, animal milk was, of course, not refrigerated, and fresh milk did not stay fresh for long. Most cooks simply did not use much milk as the short shelf-life of the product made it a difficult ingredient to depend upon. Many recipe collections of the time advise that cooks should only rely on milk that comes directly from a cow, something not possible at all times, and purchasing...

Reports of nursing home assaults growing →
THE crackdown on abuse of residents of nursing homes triggered 925 allegations of reportable assaults in the past year, but few are expected to result in convictions. The reports of the alleged assaults, which nursing homes are obliged to pass on to police, had led to six convictions, a Federal Government spokeswoman said yesterday. Of the cases, 200 were claims of unlawful sexual contact, 48...

While multiple factors have combined to produce a climate in which the fear of witches thrives, there is a consensus that at the root of the witch- hunts there is a fierce struggle for survival that takes the form of an intergenerational struggle. It is young men, often unemployed, who provide the manpower for the witch-hunts, although often executing plans hatched by other actors who remain in...

Wallet as a 'tell'
besttumblr: lgbtlaughs: Quite possibly the highlight of my day: Nurse: Is that a wallet or a cellphone in your pocket? Me: It’s a wallet. Other nurse: you carry a wallet in your back pocket? *looks around, lowers voice* are you gay? Me: Well I’m bi… Nurse: Because my sister carries a wallet, and shes gay.

This chant assumes that anal sex is not pleasurable for women; that if she says yes to intercourse, you have to go further to an activity that you experience as degrading to her, dominating to her, not pleasurable to her. This second chant is a necessary corollary to the first. Thanks to feminism, women have claimed the ability to say both “no” and “yes.” Not only have women come to...
To Write Scam On Her Arms.
invisibilities:sugaredvenom: So who exactly is surprised that it turns out that To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA) are disgusting sexist, homophobic douches who only really exist to scam emo kids into going to church?

so a prominent transmisogynistic radical feminist teaches at my uni. there are few other gender studies/feminist classes and none as large as hers or taught by someone as famous. and at first I thought there was little connection between her disciples and the feminist activism on campus. like they avoided the student union women’s department because it was “too queer” (as in,...
