angst and misandry

seriously read up on basically everything that happened in pop culture in the 70s and you’ll realize it was just one enormous prank being played on straight people everywhere and it took eight years of reagan to scrub the glitter off of the streets

incidentally feel free to use It Took Eight Years Of Reagan To Scrub The Glitter Off Of The Streets as the title of your next paper for your queer studies 102 class

Apparently it’s not socially acceptable for a man to invite another man out just for coffee or to go out for a meal, in case it’s perceived as a date. Like it’s fine if you wanna go to the pub and drink beer and have a chat but make it non-alcoholic and suddenly you’re not straight anymore? You can go to the cinema together but ONLY if it’s an action movie. You guys can’t even just go shopping with each other. Oh masculinity, so fragile, so strange.

Seems like IKEA are really shaking things up this year. In addition to the previously announced TV set, they’re also going to release a digital camera made of cardboard called Knäppa (“Snap”). It’ll hold 40 photographs at a time and plugs directly into your USB port. While it’s not the prettiest camera the world has ever seen, I do love the idea of a screen-less digital camera that brings people back to the wait-and-see days of film.

I am really into this.

Anonymous asked: What would you do if you woke up and you had a dick and a hairy chest and big bones and muscles and a beard and everyone thought you were a man?

Get a job, run for President and walk alone at night without carrying mace and looking over my shoulder.

I’d also take the opportunity to travel to places a woman can never go unaccompanied; I’d travel alone, I’d see Tunisia and Morocco and go skiing in Iran and see Russia and Mexico and camp alone.

You say this like I’d wake up shocked and horrified and appalled, but all it means to me is that I’d be free:

Free to leave dishes in the sink knowing someone else will handle them, free to have a sense of humour and take up space and not have men harass me and creep at me and make rape jokes, and free to hold a woman’s hand in public and not fear for my life.

Free to make more money, do more things, meet more people. I’d be a Human, not a woman.

This is so sad but I feel like if Beyoncé came up to me and was like “You can come work for me as my maid/babysitter but you won’t get paid and you have to live in my laundry room and live off of Blue’s old jars of baby food and you also have to cut off all ties to anybody but me & my family” I would really do it like I wouldnt even second guess it I’d just call my mom like ‘imma miss u say goodbye to the rest of the fam for me xoxo’

The Urban Treehouse - Berlin, Germany

Set in a 650 sqm garden at the edge of Grunewald Forest, yet close enough to the hectic urban life of Berlin, lies The Urban Treehouse, a very special place consisting of two tree-shaped houses perched 4 meters off the ground level. Designed by Andreas Wenning from Baumraum - a leading architecture firm specialized in treehouses, the two innovative accommodation modules come with clean, cutting-edge design and bright, contemporary interiors appointed with all modern luxuries, from fully-equipped bathrooms and kitchenettes to plasma TVs and fresh, versatile furnishings.

I don’t really understand how that is a question up for discussion on television news. I mean, even putting aside the gajillion ways that white people are privileged by, for instance, being able to think that whiteness is “normal,” studying world history from Eurocentric perspectives,  and etc etc:
- White people are less likely to be arrested for the same crime than black people, and black people serve longer (much longer!) sentences than white people.
- Marijuana use is similar among black and white populations in the U.S., but young African Americans are more than THREE TIMES more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession or use than white Americans. 
- Racial bias in hiring in the U.S. is well-documented and persistent.
- African American students are far more likely to be punished in schools, even though they are not much more likely to break school rules than their white peers.
- Even after accounting for reasons like education disparity, geographical distribution, and occupation, there is a persistent wage gap: White people make are paid more than African Americans due to racial discrimination. 
- White people in the U.S. on average have lower mortgage rates than African Americans.
White privilege is a fact of every facet of American life. I realize I’m mostly preaching to the choir here, but this is not a political issue or a subject for debate. It is well-documented and irrefutable.
