School is really important: Reading, writing, arithmetic. But what they tend to do is teach you reading, writing, arithmetic…then teach you reading, writing, arithmetic again. Then again, then again, just making it harder and harder just to keep you busy. And that’s where I think they messed up. There should be a class on drugs. There should be a class on sex education. No, REAL sex education class, not just pictures and illogical terms…There should be a class on scams, there should be a class on religious cults, there should be a class on police brutality, there should be a class on apartheid, there should be a class on racism in America, there should be a class on why people are hungry, but there’s not, their class is on…gym….Their class is like Algebra. we have yet to go a store and said, “Can I have X Y + 2 and give me my Y change back, thank you.” You know?…Like foreign languages. I think that they are important, but I don’t think it should be required. Actually, they should be teaching you English, and then teach you how to understand double talk, politician’s double talk. Not teaching you how to understand French and Spanish and GERMAN. When am I going to Germany? I can’t afford to pay my rent in America! How am I going to Germany?

Just finished this turquoise mine sampler/know your stones ring and this turquoise knuckle ring. Tempted to keep ‘em both! (at Soliloquy Jewelry Studio)
it’s really ironic how you let men in your movement and suddenly all the things that men like but were previously agreed to be detrimental to women like porn and violent kinks are now empowering
good job third wave
i have no problem with pointing out that anyone of any gender can be an abuser, rapist, pedophile etc because that’s absolutely true.
but the problem with always emphasizing “yes but it happens to everyone, not just women (or people of colour, or trans* people, etc)!” is that it depoliticizes the issue.
violence is not an accident, it is reflective of social power relations that permeate society at every level
For more mythbusting regarding the many smears about Andrea Dworkin, I recommend the Andrea Dworkin Lie Detector.
"Look, if posing naked were empowering, then the rich men who run the world would be lining up for it. We would be awash in naked dick shots of Warren Buffet and Bill Gates and Barack Obama; magazines would be filled with male politicians and financiers and moguls with their bits hanging out. Softly lit, perhaps; head coyly tilted, bunny tail on the ass. Power."

"Rape of wives by husbands is a form of wife abuse. As regards sexual abuse in marriage, I am aware of no findings of husband sexual abuse by the wife (though men report experiencing sexual withholding as abusive). Sexual abuse by husbands, however, is well documented (see, for example, Finkelhor and Yllo 1985)."
The fact that so many men see women not giving consent for sexual activity as “abusive” (i.e.: “friendzoning), or in some cases, even as unjust and oppressive, is unbelievably pathetic.
