Greek myths mention several Islands of Women, where Amazons lived without men, only consorting with neighboring colonies of males at certain seasons when they wanted to conceive their children. Taurus, Lemnos, and Lesbos were said to be such all-female societies. The Greeks apparently feared them. They said the women of Taurus sacrificed to their Goddess all men who landed on their shores; and the women of Lemnos had risen up against their husband and murdered all of them at once. The Greek writers seemed to have not doubt that women could destroy whole populations of adult males, and there was no effective defense against them.

these are both still male dominated like……….this is wrong this is not more women than men look its plain and simple wtf

Men, despite dominating STEM fields, demonstrating that they do not even have a basic grasp on math.

I know what this is. It’s the 17% Perception:
GEENA DAVIS: We just heard a fascinating and disturbing study, where they looked at the ratio of men and women in groups. And they found that if there’s 17 percent women, the men in the group think it’s 50-50. And if there’s 33 percent women, the men perceive that as there being more women in the room than men.
JACKI LYDEN: Oh, my goodness.
DAVIS: So is it possible that 17 percent women has become so comfortable, and so normal, that that’s just sort of unconsciously expected?
LYDEN: Why else, Geena Davis, do these kinds of disparities matter?
DAVIS: What we’re, in effect, doing is training children to see that women and girls are less important than men and boys. We’re training them to perceive that women take up only 17 percent of the space in the world. And if you add on top of that, that so many female characters are sexualized - even in things that are aimed at little kids - that’s having an enormous impact as well.

you spray dogs with water when they won’t listen, but will it work on an ally? the a is not for you. get off the couch, stop barking, go away. 

Can all the asexuals stop complaining about allies? Sometimes it’s nice to have a straight person helping you out when you need a little extra support. I respect asexuals but y’all can’t be acting this way.

"you can’t be upset that you’re being erased from the community you belong in because some straight people want credit for being a decent person" 
i can act however the heck i want to act especially when i have the great little straight allies like you telling me “i want to support you but you’re being angry at completely rational things and i just can’t handle it because it makes me look bad”.
i can complain about you as much as i want and i’d really rather not have assholes like you “trying to help me out”. you erasing my sexuality from the queer community is not helping me out, it’s pissing me off. so how about you piss off.

Hate doesn’t breed hate. Hate inspires anger in victims of hatred and that anger is called hatred to delegitimize it and villainize people. If you wanna help people who are victims then first you gotta stop acting like they’re just as bad their oppressors and abusers.

petaluma ur sexism just actually makes 0 sense… the fetus is going to be one size in 8 days, regardless of what gender the ultrasound technician assigns it. like i understand that a lot of the stuff in social justice circles is academic jargon BUT everyone knows you can’t be little and big at the same time, right?
