The fluorescent insides of an opinionated mind

I am a blah blah blah, no. I am me and I do not like defining myself by labels. I agree with that they are important to identity with but I think it is absolute bullshit to use them to define you. You are you. These interests do not define me but gives you a little bit of insight into what makes my life that little bit sweeter: the 60s, intersectional feminism, vaginas, penises, full hairy sexy man legs, music, 20th century literature, vegetarianism, politics, anti-organised religion, musical instruments, antique furniture, lying by candlelight, fucking by candlelight, history, debates, pot, the Beatles, freak folk, trippy music late at night, floral. Lots of floral. I am brash and abrasive on a social level. Awkward on a first sight. Mushy on a personal level. I count myself as an Intersectional feminist, believe that feminism MUST be intersectional otherwise it's bullshit, and believe deeply in Queer Theory. Call me out if you wanna bro! Still learning about so much. I want to get my PhD in Gender Studies. Currently completing my Honours in Gender Studies and Politics. Feel free to ask anything or to start any debates about any topic.

"Waste of good ammo. It’s my privilege to buy you a replacement box."

"All self-respecting whites have a moral responsibility to support our growing number of martyrs to the failed experiment called diversity."

"I thank all Police, you are the ‘Thin Blue Line’ protecting normal Americans from aggressive and entitled primitive savages. America is surely at the tipping point."

Just a few quotes (in case it’s hard to read) from that collection of donation messages for Darren Wilson.

Does anyone else want to say it’s not about race?

This is what we had to encounter at our University last night! We protested the audacity of our Prime Minister Tony Abbott coming on to our campus to give a lecture on some neo-liberalist bullshit to a bunch of rich white wankers.

We peacefully protested and they brought out over 50 police officers and around 10 mounted police! THIS IS OUR CAMPUS. WE HAVE A RIGHT TO BE ON OUR CAMPUS AND TO PROTEST OUR EMBARRASSING AND WEAK GOVERNMENT!

The police surrounded us with horses on one side and police force on the other and then the horses started charging toward us - two protesters got hurt. They gave us no warning and we were just peacefully protesting. They got violent and pushy - we didn’t.

This is fucked. This is the kind of society Abbott wants for us. This is the kind of government that Australia has - a cowardly one where the Prime Minister couldn’t show his face to the protesters, yet those who watched the lecture had to push through the crowds. This is Australia’s future - speak out against the government and he will enforce police brutality.

I will not stand for this. FUCK ABBOTT!!

"Yeah…. Peaceful protest? "Fuck Tony" "Abbott’s a cunt". Sounds very peaceful. Silly uni students, wasting their time.

- What is your point? To show your ignorance? Or to show how you don’t care how Abbott and his government is ruining our country?

Educate yoself.

Bye.

Ugh, are you kidding me?!?! People of Colour are killed DAILY by the police! THAT IS WHY THEY ARE RIOTING. If you don’t think that the shooting had anything to do with racism then you are ignorantly mistaken and should have a long, hard look at yourself

Some cops abuse their power and authority over society, yes I agree. However you are stereotyping when you say 'all cops are cunts'. Lots of officers do their job correctly and thoroughly, without being massive dildos. I have met my fair share of good cop and bad cop, and I think its wrong of you to say that they are ~all~ cunts.

spearmintblonde:

You’re totally entitled to think that it’s ~wrong~ of me to hate cops. Similarly, I’m entitled to hate cops. The wonderful thing about the world is that often, difference of opinion benefits us & we don’t have to attack others for disagreeing with us.

(Where are the good cops, though? Like I’m fucking curious. Where are the good cops, why don’t they come out of the shadows when shit like Ferguson goes down? Where are the good cops when Vice do unnecessary raids, when they fuck sex workers, refuse to pay them and then arrest them, claiming it was all part of an undercover sting? Where are the good cops when Aboriginal Australians get unfairly profiled and chucked in jail despite having broken no laws?

I don’t believe there are good cops because they stay silent in times of extreme injustice and abuse of power. Like, maybe they don’t actively abuse their own power, but they sure as shit don’t put a stop to it when the rest of their team of bastards do.

If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.) 

- Daisy, you’d be interested in what happened at Adelaide Uni last night….

Tonight, students and workers led an amazing demonstration against Tony Abbott and the Liberal government at the University of Adelaide. It was an honour and an inspiration to protest in solidarity with so many wonderful people, regardless of their reasons for being there. We did, however, face a serious conflict. This conflict was between the protesters and the police. Despite our peaceful protest, they had no issue with acting violently towards us. Police on horses came and charged at protesters. There have been several reports of injuries sustained because of police actions. We did not protest violently, but the police certainly did. It really does show what side they’re on, the side of the rich and powerful. Fences were erected and police were everywhere, all to keep us in line. They were the aggressors, we merely fought back using our civil and legal rights. In the end, Tony Abbott did not show his face to the crowd. He snuck in and out of the venue without anyone knowing. He knew that he was not welcome at our universities and we made every single rich bastard that listened to his speech know that. The Liberals have nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. It’s time for them to wake up and face the music, their merciless attacks will not be tolerated. For those of you that weren’t there or have heard media reports, I call upon you to join us in solidarity. Contrary to what the Murdoch press will tell you, the protest was peaceful and protesters were very kind to one another. We are all brothers and sisters in our crusade against the Abbott government, we must continue the fightback. Again, I am honoured and inspired by the efforts of everyone who came to the protest and helped make it possible. The fight is far from over, but we have given the world a tiny glimpse of what we can be capable of.

ask-an-mra-anything:

Here’s the thing about trolling in regards to racism/misogyny/etc.:

It’s not a joke. It’s not fake. It’s just hate. 

I try and make it very clear that this blog is satire. I try and make it crystal fuckin clear that the beliefs expressed are  ridiculous and why. I am not pretending to be anyone, as deliberately thick headed as some MRAs and so called “egalitarians” can be. Just read a couple of my entries, and you can see I am not trying to fool anyone into ACTUALLY believing I am a MRA 

But there are people who troll, who deliberately try and get a rise out of people by saying racist/sexist/homophobic/transphobic/etc. things. And they think that this is badass or hilarious or whatever. It’s a “joke”. It’s “ironic”.

Except that it isn’t. When you are part if a privileged group, like men, and you genuinely blog misogynistic things, it’s not trolling. It’s not “just getting a rise out of feminists”. It’s actual misogyny. That sandwich joke doesn’t have some magical other intent when you tell it to some woman you don’t know on the internet because she happened to exist in the same comment thread as you. We’re not going to suddenly all join in on your laughter and call you a “scamp” or whatever the fuck it is you’re hoping for. 

Because if you’re a white person posting racist shit and POC get upset, there is no difference between you and one of the white nationalists posting the same shit around here. The effect is the same on the people you’re hurting, and you are essentially writing off that pain with a wave of your hand and an exclamation of “I was only trolling.”

And if you can do that to someone, you’re lacking one of the fundamental tools an ally needs to help marginalized groups: empathy. It’s impossible for privileged groups to ever know what it’s like to be on the other side of their privilege, but you can at least look at someone and say, “holy shit, this is causing them a lot of pain. How can I help to stop this pain?” And listen to what they need from you, from people willing to talk about it. And if you can deliberately cause that kind of pain in some twisted ass hipster version of “comedy”, you’re essentially saying that you do not care about the pain you cause, that people need to just “get over” a kind of pain you’ve never experienced. It’s like a person who has never broken a bone telling a person with a broken leg to “walk it off”. You’re just a dick. 

And if your point is to be a dick, if you ACTUALLY WANT to cause that pain for people from marginalized groups, if that’s your goal… Please fucking tell me how that DOESN’T make you a racist, misogynist, or whatever, because that takes some SERIOUS hate to want to CAUSE someone pain like that.

why the fuck does kimberly get less coffee

This is the perfect visual metaphor for heterosexuality.

I really can’t get over what a good metaphor this is.

they could’ve just made them square but that’d probably be too gay 

but then how would the dude be in the lady’s space, expropriating her value? D:

Guys, this is obviously literally meant as a metaphor for the depressingly common dynamics of most heterosexual relationships, and indeed of society in general.

the ‘hers’ cup only appears to have a normal shape when paired with the ‘his’ cup.  on its own, the cup would appear to be missing something.  why is heterosexuality so terrible?

This has to literally be a metaphor for heterosexual relationships. There is no way someone made such a perfect representation by accident.
