How do you feel about more than 70 abortion clinics across America being shuttered since 2011 due to more restrictive laws? Or how women still aren't paid the same as men for the same work? Or the fact that the America still has no paid maternal leave unlike nearly every other nation? Or that the percentage of women in the American government ranks 69th in the world behind countries like Afghanistan and Iraq? These are all third wave feminist issues you seem to dismiss as "nit picking"

If you want to get an abortion for any reason other than it being life-threatening to the mother, you should pay for it in full. This includes travelling to a different city or state in case clinics that are closer to you happen to be closed for whatever reason.

Women are paid the same as men for the same work. The wage gap only exists because women, as a whole, tend to work more part-time jobs and work less hours than their male counterparts. In the case that an employer hired two people (one man and one woman) for the same exact job with the exact same hours and one got paid more than the other, this is a violation of a federal law and you’re absolutely entitled to sue. If women didn’t get paid as much as men for doing the same work, wouldn’t it make sense for companies to only hire female employees? After all, if that whole 77 cents to a dollar thing was true, companies would be able to save 33 cents per employed female.

I don’t share the opinion that our government should be funding peoples’ personal lives. I’m content with there being no paid maternity/paternity leave because having a child is a choice that a couple should make when they’re emotionally and financially stable. If you want to have a kid, that’s great, just don’t expect to be supported by tax money simply because you decided you wanted to bring another person into this world. Unpaid maternity leave is sufficient.

The ratio of males to females in government means nothing once you look at the bigger spectrum of things compared to “b-b-but FEMALE REPRESENTATION”. Sure, Iraq and Afghanistan may have a higher percentage of women in their government, and they also have a higher amount of women who are severely oppressed. I’d rather have more males in our government and not be forced to marry at age 14, but hey, that’s just me.

any postings/reblogs of celeb nudes that were “leaked” is unacceptable

i will immediately unfollow you

i have no fucking time for victim blaming bullshit

Right…because a celebrity who willingly took nude photos of themselves and distributed them to someone is clearly a poor soul who got taken advantage of. Don’t want your nudes leaked? Don’t take them and definitely don’t send them to anyone if you do feel the need to take them. This isn’t victim blaming, it’s common fucking sense.

"This isn’t victim blaming". Are you sure? Yes, it must be Jlaw’s fault. I mean, she took the nudes, and some asshole hacked into her computer and shared them with the world and then, attempted to sell them.

I guess that girl shouldn’t have worn a skirt so sort and she wouldn’t have got raped.

I guess that girl shouldn’t have had night classes and maybe she wouldn’t have been mugged in the parking lot.

I guess that girl shouldn’t have taken those nudes because then the hacker wouldn’t have leaked them onto the internet.

Yeah. Have a good day.

It’s funny how you immediately painted women to be the victims when my wording was gender neutral. I’ve never seen this list of leaked nudes nor do I want to see it because I have no interest in that kind of stuff; I just assumed both male and female celebrities were included. I think it’s stupid for anyone to take nude pictures of themselves because there’s always the possibility that someone can find them and leak them. Celebrities, especially, should be more aware of the fact that there are creeps around every corner who are more than eager to expose every bit of information about them to the world simply because they’re famous.

Getting raped is never the victim’s fault. Getting mugged is never the victim’s fault. Getting nudes leaked literally can’t happen if you don’t take nude pictures of yourself in the first place, so yes, it ends up being your fault. Stop trying to act like these celebrities are suffering the same level of embarrassment/harassment/emotional trauma of a rape victim or a theft victim.

I'm confused about your blog url because in your bio it says that you aren't an egalitarian. I don't have a problem with this because you support equality but I'm just confused because your url has to do with being an egalitarian.

"My URL is egalitarians-do-it-better because, from what I’ve witnessed on Tumblr, egalitarians are the ones who bring up actual facts. A lot (note that I didn’t say ‘all’) of MRAs and feminists seem to debate solely with their opinions."

Congratulations, you’re proving that you’re just an ignorant asshole who cares more about semantics rather than what the person in question has to say regarding the topic of feminism and gender equality.

thank you indeed for specifically going into the tag for the movement you hate in order to find this post and call me an asshole

truly, it has made my day

I check the tag every so often to reply to posts I think are exceptionally ridiculous. Your post happened to be at the top when I last visited the tag.

You still didn’t come up with a legitimate rebuttal to what I said, you just tried to make it sound like I have no life. I’m aware of this. Whenever I’m not working, I’m streaming on Twitch or roaming around Tumblr. Now that we’ve covered this, how about you reply to my actual post?

i saw your tags on the post about sex not hurting and no, seriously, not even feel uncomfortable. it's supposed to feel pretty dang good! if it doesn't someone isn't spending enough time to make sure you're aroused enough~

Aw maaaaan. Like legit nothing??? I knew about the no bleeding thing to a degree, I did think I read somewhere that in certain cases girls had hymens that were I guess bigger and more in the way so sometimes they would get “popped”, and it being painful from lack of stimulation etc but I just thought your first time a weird sensation would come with it like the first time you use a tampon your like oh heey that’s a new feeling because you’re so aware of what’s going on. Like it’s not painful, unless you’re not using it right, but it’s just a weird sensation. Except with sex the weird sensation would bece a good (hopefully great) sensation like real quick.

Hhmmm! I need to know more now. Anyone else???

PLEASE do not listen to this person. They are acting as if their personal experience pertains to everyone else which can lead to confusion and worry among women who do feel pain or bleed when they start to have sex.

I’m tired of it being spread around that your first time having sex isn’t supposed to feel weird or uncomfortable at all. For some women, it certainly can. Everybody reacts differently to a wide array of things, both emotionally and physically. Some women can be sufficiently aroused and still bleed the first time, others can have a lot of pain mixed with a lot of pleasure, others have a comfortable time and completely lack pain.

You’re correct in believing that your first few times can feel a bit weird because your body hasn’t adapted to the feel of a penis yet. If you happen to not experience any pain, that’s great! All reactions are normal during earlier sex experiences, and the only time you should start to worry is if you have pleasurable sex frequently and it begins to hurt later on despite being sexually active and being sufficiently aroused.
