Cat calling in a nutshell (via Huffpo)

Possible causes for such a situation to happen.
a) “Catcaller” was asshole
b) “Catcaller” didn’t know how to communicate with people
c) Facial expressions may have caused “Catcaller” to be triggered.
d) Victim didn’t like to take compliments (Being called beautiful is not sexually suggestive and thus isn’t really a catcall) and didn’t thank for a simple compliment, leading to an enraged reaction from the “Catcaller”. 
e) Victim was an asshole and did something in the silence. 
f) “Catcaller” was under the influence of a substance

1. Fuck
2. You

3 of those are victim blaming, and the other 3 are excusing someone for catcalling based on their personality or use of drink/drugs. It’s shit like this which normalises catcalling, all this bullshit like “WELL THEY WERE X” or “YOU WERE DOING X” and therefore it’s a-okay. No, fuck you.

    alright so ive seen this compilation post, uploaded by batmanisagatewaydrug around a million fucking times and i’m reuploading it instead of giving it more notes because it’s already at like 220k or something ridiculous like that and i’d just like to say

    1.  theroguefeminist isnt exactly known for phrasing things well & is not always well liked among sj people. what i think they were trying to say is that it’s important to recognize valid parts of people’s identities, as the original post seemed to endorse the “I don’t see you as (x)” sort of mentality
    2. i call bullshit on the messages. OP just wanted notes at the expense of feminism
    3. thebitterfrenchcanadian’s faq confirms that this is a joke and you are all gullible
    4. wolfstirfry’s sidebar says ‘that post was a joke’ on it
    5. it’s not anyone’s responsibility to educate people who are hurting them, and the commenter was making the point that OP was unlikely to have experienced that
    6. troll anon. see use of vuv and incorrect understanding of cultural appropriation
    7. emeralddragoness has deleted but honestly i think this boils down to what a person is comfortable with themselves and OP was rlly rude in response
    8. troll anon again
    9. the way this is full of buzzwords and the cutesy emote at the end makes me think its a troll post although dating, as it doesnt exist in nature, is technically a social construct (not that that’s a bad thing)
    10. this was posted by a literal neo-nazi white supremacist, formerly known as sophia-kaminski. she’s literally the furthest thing from social justice you can get. also, a note to the commenter, race is not just skin color

    conclusion: tumblr is gullible as hell and will take any excuse to hate minorities who are sticking up for themselves

    What really saddens me is that this has become so popular. Look past the ignorance of the white man, look past the disrespect and look past the misconception.

    This is the true beauty of Afghanistan, my home country.

    These are only some examples of the true beauty of Afghanistan. What you see above is simply the result of the western imperialism, western intervention in places that the west has no right to be.

    A message to the (mostly US) outside forces “working” to better a country whose destruction is significantly at the hands of those who are “helping” it: get out. 

    besides the obvious racism and disrespect and imperialist condescension of this soldier’s stuff, there’s this idea of him being inconvenienced/bothered (at most annoyed) by Afghanistan’s appearance when he’s in the country as an occupier that just grinds my teeth

    We dare you to say we don’t live in a rape culture.

    Amazingly, not The Onion:

    “[W]e now have young men telling Bloomberg News that they basically view their female peers as rape bombs just waiting to explode and ruin their lives.”

    I REPEAT: THIS IS NOT THE ONION

    WOWWWWWWW FUCK THIS

    He called on parents to take responsibility for their sons’ actions, saying parents must teach their sons the difference between right and wrong.

    "When we hear about these rapes our heads hang in shame," Mr Modi said.

    "Young girls are always asked so many questions by their parents, like ‘where are you going?’. But do parents dare to ask their sons where they are going?" he asked.

    Those who commit rape are also someone’s sons. It’s the responsibility of the parents to stop them before they take the wrong path,” he added.

    Okay, say what you want about him, but this is a big deal. This is Prime Minister Modi’s first Independence Day address since being elected. And instead of using this time to talk about Pakistan, like every other Independence Day speech in the past, he stood up there and talked about INDIA’s need for improvement. And amongst his topics, he talked about rape.

    And he didn’t describe it as “accidental” or “boys making mistakes”, and he didn’t state that women need to “dress more dignified”, all of which have been said by other Indian politicians. For once, we’re hearing someone put the blame on the rapist, and actually calling out parents to raise their sons properly. Like everyone else, I’m still hoping Modi isn’t another PM who is all talk.

  • Ugh. I’m not blaming Obama, but you people have been crying racism since he’s been elected. It’s 2014, like get over it already.

    "Abortion is the easy way out."

    So? Why do you care? Do you just want to make the pregnant person’s life harder? Because it sounds like it.

    Because you’re never supposed to choose the easy way out if it means…

    is it racist when someone says i hate white people?

    Yeah, I heard this is why white people make less money, are disproportionately targeted by the justice system and have fewer educational opportunities.
