I am a writer to hopefully get published. I am a friend, and I am most importantly a feminist.

Early in her career as a women’s rights leader, Susan B. Anthony concluded that the ballot contained the real secret of women’s emancipation, and that sexism itself was far more oppressive than class inequality and racism. In Anthony’s eyes, ‘(T)he most odious oligarchy ever established on the face of the globe’ was the rule of men over women.

An oligarchy of wealth, where the rich govern the poor; an oligarchy of learning, where the educated govern the ignorant; or even an oligarchy of race, where the Saxon rules the African, might be endured; but this oligarchy of sex which makes father, brothers, husbands, sons, the oligarchs over the mother and sisters, the wife and daughters of every household; which ordains all men sovereigns, all women subjects - carries discord and rebellion into every home of the nation.
Anthony’s staunchly feminist position was also a staunch reflection of bourgeois ideology. And it was probably becaues of the ideology’s blinding powers that she failed to realized that working-class women and Black women alike were fundamentally linked to their men by class exploitation and racist oppression which did not discriminate between the sexes. While their men’s sexist behavior definitely needed to be challenged, the real enemy - their common enemy - was the boss, the capitalist, or whoever was responsible for the miserable wages and unbearable working conditions and for racist and sexist discrimination on the job.

I feel like everyone I come across online on Pokémon is a complete prick.

Like seriously? You’re going to not trade back the pokemon that REQUIRES trade to evolve?

Rude.

"Girl Scouts promote lesbianism and abortion!"

Yes why do you think I bought 15 boxes of thin mints. 

Yes, but Girl Scout shouldn’t be a thing, it should just be Scouting of America!!

Girls Scouts became a thing because guys could not and still cannot handle women in their troops defend the girl scouts to the fucking death because we aren’t equal and taking away safe spaces for young girls won’t achieve that either

PLEASE HELP/SIGNAL BOOST!!! IT IS AN EMERGENCY.
On June 14th I left/got kicked out of my parents home.My parents are mentally/emotionally/verbally abusive, and I was having major panic attacks every day, sometimes more than once.I have Autism and while it is a struggle at times, I have always paid for my horses by myself. Taken care of vet fees, done their feet myself to save money…
In January, 2014, my family and I moved to a farm. So since then I have been keeping my horses on my property.
Yesterday (July 14th) I had to leave. My horses are still there…
I have a place for my thoroughbred to go until I get back on my feet, I just need to find a way to trailer her there.
However, I still need to find a place to keep my Paint mare, Pippin. Full board averages between $400-475 here. I can’t do self board because I no longer have a car (I was using my moms…) and would not have a way to bring hay or grain to the barn.I’m desperately trying to get my horses off the property as I fear my parents may do something drastic (i.e. give them away), and I’m asking for help…I figure it’s going to cost anywhere from $100-$150 to trailer Shylo, my Thoroughbred, to Victoria to the place where she’ll be staying.
I’ve set my “goal” at $550 because that will supply the $400-475 for Pippins board, and also put some (if not pay for in entiriety) for Shylo’s trailering.Any bit helps! I hate doing this, but I know without my horse(s) my mental health will seriously decline.After this first month I’ll be able to pay for my horses again no problem, it’s just a matter of finding a place to rent, finding a place to board, and getting everything in place and getting horses settled in. My horses are first and foremost.Huge thanks to anyone who donates! Every cent helps!!! I will be sending out little doodles of peoples horses for every donation! Just PM me and let me know you donated and I’ll get it done as soon as possible!!!

I’d really appreciate signal boosts. This hurts my pride doing this, but I’d rather have no pride and still have my horses. 

Hey guys, this is my friend Alex. I was visiting her place the past couple days, and was there while two arguments went down yesterday, the last of which resulting in needing to help her move all her stuff and animals out of there.
Her parents are very emotionally abusive, I have witnessed it in person and the aftermath many times previously, hearing her explain through tears/panic attacks what happened. 
She needs to get her horses out of there, and just started a full time job so she will be able to afford board in a couple weeks. She just needs some help in the meantime to get them out of there and get back on her feet.
Please help, every little bit helps. If every one of my followers donated even $1, she’d have enough. If you can’t donate, please signal boost.

YouTube comments aren’t “just the Internet.” They’re not the product of a group of otherwise nice guys who suddenly become evil when they wear a veil of anonymity. YouTube comments are actually a nightmarish glimpse into the sexist attitudes that define the fabric of our own existence in the “real world,” a world that, like YouTube, is owned and dominated by men. The most terrifying gift that the Internet has given us is that it’s shown us how men honestly perceive the world: as a place where women exist exclusively for their sexual pleasure.

In the wake of VidCon, and as more and more women start speaking up about the harassment they face online, it’s time to start realizing that our narrative of progress is deeply flawed. Things aren’t getting better for women on the Internet; they’re deteriorating and ignoring the problem amounts to being complicit in it.

"Thor’s not a guy anymore.
Thor’s a gal.
Marvel Comics announced that their male hero of yore was no longer worthy to hold the mighty hammer Mjölnir.
(Bear with us.)
"The inscription on Thor’s hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.’ Well it’s time to update that inscription," said Marvel editor Wil Moss in a statement. "The new Thor continues Marvel’s proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute – she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!"
Wait, there’s more.
"This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR,” said writer Jason Aaron. “This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before."
Thor will be Marvel’s eighth comic featuring a female in its leading role, which the publisher says “aims to speak directly to an audience that long was not the target for Super Hero comic books in America: women and girls.”
So watch your back, Captain America.”

Hey guys. My friend’s dog was hit by a car and they are trying to raise money so they can afford the surgery that would save her life. 

I know these things are annoying and I told myself I would never do one but I can’t sit by while my friends dog suffers. I don’t know that anyone will even see this but it is the least I can do to help.

Even if you can’t donate I would be grateful if you could share it. 

Thank you.
