It’s been fun…

but the blog is going on indefinite hiatus. I will keep the site up for archival purposes (and, of course, you can still make your own marms over at MemeGenerator), but due to personal factors and the fact that the meme seems to have run its course, don’t expect anymore updates for the foreseeable future. 

I’m taking a break from blogging for a while so I can focus more on my serious writing. I’ll let you know where you can find me when I make my magnificient return to the webiverse whenever that is.

I never expected the blog to gain as much support as it did and I’d like to thank each and every one of you for joining me in this silly little corner of the Internet.

Keep fighting the good fight.

♥ Liz

I’ve seen this quote and sentiment passed around a bit, and it always amazes me how the emphasis is put on sex, as if someone complaining of “friendzoning” did not, in fact, desire a romantic relationship, but instead just wanted to get into a woman’s pants.
There’s a logical fallacy in here somewhere, now which is it…

Okay then&#8230; &#8220;Girls are not machines that you put kindness coins into until sex/a romantic relationship falls out.&#8221; Happy now?

‎”Slut” is how we vilify a woman for exercising her right to say “yes”. “Friendzone” is how we vilify a woman for exercising her right to say “no”.”

I know it’s just words but…

Reading MRA bullshit upsets me more than it should.

I should have known better than try to search tumblr using the #feminism tag. I just wanted to read interesting discourse…

I feel like I need a shower now.

1spoopyjerk asked: Just out of curiosity, what would you consider an "established" website? I mean, nerdydyke's tumblr blog is run by an MRA that doesn't really care at all for misogyny. noseriouslywhatabouttehmenz, a wordpress site, is similar. This is in response to funnyfaceking's ask, by the way.

Yeah, I think having an actual domain is the very least you need to qualify.

"If a man wants more than friendship with a woman, then the friendship itself doesn’t even attain the status of a consolation prize, but is instead viewed as hell: a punishment to be endured because, so long as he thinks she owes him that golden opportunity, he is bound to persist in an association that hurts him – not because he cares about the friendship, but because he feels he’s invested too much kindness not to stick around for the (surely inevitable, albeit delayed) payoff."

"Separatist feminist rhetoric suggested that all men share equally in male privilege, that all men reap positive benefits from sexism. Yet the poor or working-class man who has been socialized via sexist ideology to believe that there are privileges and powers he should possess solely because he is male often finds that few, if any, of these benefits are automatically bestowed on him in life. More than any other male group in the United States, he is constantly concerned about the contradiction between the notions of masculinity he was taught and his inability to live up to that notion. He is usually ‘hurt,’ emotionally scarred because he does not have the privilege or power society has taught him ‘real men’ should possess. Alienated, frustrated, pissed off, he may attack, abuse, and oppress and individual woman or women, but he is not reaping positive benefits from his support and perpetuation of sexist ideology."

On what planet is this sort of hateful response to a very well-intentioned campaign not considered blatantly sexist?  Is being presumed guilty of a rape accusation another “male privilege?”  How about being convicted without any evidence, whatsoever?  Simply because juries are statistically more likely to believe a woman’s testimony over a man’s?  I call bullshit.

Wow.

Feminism: Because lying about rape is a woman’s right!

Jesus fuck you’re a terrible person. If a woman cut your fucking balls off I would personally escort her to the Canadian border.

FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU.
Reported rapes (AND MOST RAPES AREN’T REPORTED YOU SCUMBAG) have the same rate of false allegations like any other crime.
And you know what?I really doubt that’s true because of how many women who I’ve talked to who said that their prosecutors harassed them, because they were wearing ‘skinny jeans’.
So fuck you.
I will take a rape survivor’s word over a rapist.
Austin, I live two hours away from Canada. I’ll help.

"Feminism has fought no wars. It has killed no opponents. It has set up no concentration camps, starved no enemies, practiced no cruelties. Its battles have been for education, for the vote, for better working conditions.. for safety on the streets… for child care, for social welfare… for rape crisis centers, women’s refuges, reforms in the law. If someone says ‘Oh, I’m not a feminist,’ I ask ‘Why? What’s your problem?"

Dale Splendor, 1985
