McCance’s Facebook post: “Seriously they want me to wear purple because five queers killed themselves. The only way im wearin it for them is if they all commit suicide. I cant believe the people of this world have gotten this stupid. We are honoring the fact that they sinned and killed thereselves because of their sin. REALLY PEOPLE.”
His comment later in the status:
“No because being a fag doesn’t give you the right to ruin the rest of our lives. If you get easily offended by being called a fag then dont tell anyone you are a fag. Keep that shit to yourself. I dont care how people decide to live their lives. They dont bother me if they keep it to thereselves. It pisses me off though that we make a special purple fag day for them. I like that fags cant procreate. I also enjoy the fact that they often give each other aids and die. If you arent against it, you might as well be for it.”
The fact that a bigot like him is sitting on a school board is both ridiculous and unsurprising.
UGH. No words.
I am literally shaking after reading this. This is someone people entrust their children’s education to. This is inexcusable. Open your fucking eyes.
”(…) teachers and administrators knew that one of their students had been sexually harassing and propositioning girls at Sparkman Middle School in Alabama. However, no action had been taken against him by the school. So one teacher decided on the same tactic as Upper St. Claire’s principal: girl-as-bait. The teacher coerced 14-year-old B.H.J., an African-American student who had reported being repeatedly sexually harassed, into meeting her tormentor in a bathroom, assuring her that they would “catch him.” But nobody followed B.H.J. into the bathroom, and nobody stopped her from being raped; the teacher simply went back to her classroom and waited. B.H.J. is reported as being severely traumatized and in an almost completely non-communicative state.
The lawsuit states that this incident was part of a systemic failure “to supervise, discipline, suspend and expel students who pose a real and immediate danger to their fellow students.” Even if the teacher’s intention was to “catch” a student making inappropriate sexual advances, to put an unwilling 14-year-old in danger by using her as bait, and then through negligence allow that girl to be raped, demonstrates a disregard for student welfare that is unacceptable in a teacher.
Men are 150 percent more likely to be the victims of violent crimes than women are. Men are more likely to be both victims and perpetrators of crimes. Men are more likely to be assaulted, injured, or killed when alcohol is involved. Men are more likely to be victimized by a stranger (63 percent of violent victimizations), whereas women are more likely to be victimized by someone they know (62 percent of violent victimizations). Women are more likely to be victimized in their home or in the home of someone they know, whereas men are more likely to be victimized in public.
And yet it is women who are treated to “suggestions” about how to protect themselves from public stranger assaults: go out with a friend, don’t drink too much, don’t walk home alone, take a self-defense class. Well-meaning as they may be, suggestions send the false message that women can prevent rape. Certainly, on an individual basis, self-defense and other trainings do help women to protect themselves. But while these trainings are invaluable for the women they assist, they place all of the responsibility on the individual women who use them — in other words, they are not the answer to dismantling rape culture.

you asked about female friendly porn. for bi/les/pan ladies, theres crashpad. its pretty neat.
All of the male-based sites with a supposed “female friendly” section, are talking out of their asses. I don’t get off on being referred to as a bitch. I’m also not a huge fan of anal. It just…it just doesn’t perk my interest.
Maybe that’s just a personal mountain I’ll have to conquer.
Their closet can have skirts and pants and pretty dresses and leather jackets and combat boots and embroidered gloves. Their room will be their favorite color and not “pink for vagina, blue for penis”.
I’ll tell them about how there are some people who feel like boys or like girls, or like both or like neither, and it has nothing to do with how they look. Instead of telling them the difference between boy parts and girl parts, I’ll tell them about outies and innies, and that some people are born with a little from column A and a little from column B and that’s fine too.
I’ll ask them how they feel. Maybe I’ll ask them every morning.People can be old-fashioned about gender, I’ll tell them. Today, do you want to be my daughter, son, or kid?
If they say “daughter” I’ll call them she and if they say “son” I’ll call them he and if they say “kid” I’ll call them ey, but they can still wear skirts or pants or pretty dresses or leather jackets or cowboy boots or embroidered gloves, because nothing needs to be “boy clothes” or “girl clothes”. They’re just kid clothes.
And if my son is wearing a dress and embroidered gloves and someone says “what a lovely daughter you have there,” I’ll say, “yes, my son is very pretty today.”
And if my daughter is wearing a leather jacket and combat boots and someone says “what a fierce son you have there,” I’ll say, “yes, my daughter is very handsome today.”
And if my kid is wearing anything and someone misidentifies them like that, I’ll go, “Yes, they’re a great kid.”
And when I talk to them about sex, I’ll talk to them about liking boys and girls or just people, and I’ll talk about what parts people might have and how they work, and how outie + innie causes pregnancy but innie + innie and outie + outie do not. I’ll ask them if they’re happy with the parts they have and I will be crudely honest about anal sex and strap-ons as alternatives to having innies or outies, and if that’s not enough I will be crudely honest about bottom surgery and let them decide for themselves.
And if they bring home a boy, I will wish them the best. And if they bring home a girl, I will wish them the best. And if they bring home a person, I will wish them the best. And if they don’t bring home anybody at all, I will wish them the best.
‘Cause really, let’s cut through all the bullshit: a kid is a kid is a kid, and I don’t give a fuck what they do in bed or with who as long as everyone’s happy, and I don’t give a fuck whether they’re a he or she or ey - and if a bizarre upbringing like this saves my kid from even one tiny moment of hating themselves then it’s worth it.
Also I would like to name them something nice like Elliot because you can always shorten that to Ellie. Elliot is a badass name.
“It’s genius, really. Shame women into being chaste and tell them that all they have to do to be ‘good’ is not to have sex. For women especially, virginity has become the easy answer — the morality quick fix. You can be vapid, stupid, and unethical, but so long as you’ve never had sex, you’re a ‘good’ (i.e., moral) girl and therefore worthy of praise… However, equating this inaction with morality not only is problematic because it continues to tie women’s ethics to our bodies, but also is downright insulting because it suggests that women can’t be moral actors. Instead, we’re defined by what we don’t do—our ethics are the ethics of passivity. Perhaps it’s true that in our sex-saturated culture, it does take a certain amount of self-discipline to resist having sex, but restraint does not equal morality. And let’s be honest: If this were simply about resisting peer pressure and being strong, then the women who have sex because they actively want to—as appalling as that idea might be to those who advocate abstinence—wouldn’t be scorned. Because the ‘strength’ involved in these women’s choices would be about doing what they want despite pressure to the contrary.”—Jessica Valenti, The Purity Myth (via cocknbull)
that the internet is not an actual place. It’s very lucky for everyone I come in contact with through the internet, that we are not currently standing in the same room, digging through piles of disturbing, yet entertaining, pictures and mood-lifting memes.
If this were the case, I can almost guarantee that I would be hitting on every single one of you. Simultaneously, and through no fault of my own.
My libido is a greedy one.

“If a dude thinks that he is powerful because he doesn’t get fucked, and you are weak and shameful for getting fucked, you really and truly don’t want to let him fuck you. Sex is about respect, and letting someone inside you without respect is a bad idea… I fuck while feminist by insisting that there is nothing submissive about getting fucked. Accepting the standard bullshit narrative of “penetration as dominance” or “penetration as corruption” is ridiculous and arbitrary.”—Tiger Beatdown › Fucking While Feminist: The Unfuckables (via sexisnottheenemy)
