"You hit like a girl," the strong female character says

"Stop being such a girl," the strong female character says

"Man up," the strong female character says

"Shut the fuck up," I whisper

More like

"You hit like a girl," the clueless male writer writes

"Stop being such a girl," the writer who calls himself a feminist writes

"Man up," the writer who thinks the only way to write strong female characters is to strip them of being a woman writes

"Because the blame shouldn’t be placed on a fictional character instead of the creator," I whisper

I found this way too funny.

HAAHAHAHA

Very few things on this website actually make me laugh out loud anymore. This is one of them.

"stop saying straight men are weak and pathetic" 

i had to listen to a man describe how the fact that his girlfriend’s farts are louder and stronger than his is making him feel self conscious and emasculated on the radio today

“Everything we feared about communism - that we would lose our houses and savings and be forced to labor eternally for meager wages with no voice in the system - has come true under capitalism.”

Jeff Sparrow (via anticapitalist)

I need there to be a gif of someone dropping a mic so hard the entire building collapses, so I can put it here.

Anyway you dice it, nothing is going to change the fact that children need both a mother and a father.

Ah, homophobia, transphobia, and good old cis straight prejudice. (Oh, also a prejudice against single parent homes! Yay! So many problems!) 
Did you know that there’s actually been STUDIES about the sorts of environments that children do well in? And you know what they found? The gender of the parents has no impact on the well being of a child. 
Like, cornbreaded christ, stop trying to use “but the children!” as an excuse for bigotry. 

Besides, children DON’T need a mother and a father. What they DO need is a stable home with someone who loves them more than anything who can meet their needs and some of their wants. Trans people and gay and lesbian couples can provide those just fine. We’re not incapable of love just because our gender or sexuality is not cis/straight.
This also implies a single mother or father is incapable of ‘loving’ their children enough or providing stability or a good environment. You’re against single parents too then OP?

*looks at the OPs tags*

#cisgender pride? #no homo??? …ok this person has to be trolling. they have to be. i absolutely refuse to believe that anyone could be this earnestly dense
