I am going to be filling in this picture of a jellyfish with urls from this post. You can check out past projects here or my Facebook page. Or look at my store and help me pay for scans of these projects.
Please reblog and spread this around (´◕ω◕`)
Update with about 200 urls, keep up the reblogging guys!
These are not mine but I wanted to bring them together!
what is this
those moments when straight people assume you’re one of them and you feel like a gay secret agent
it’s an ace case
So last night cops arrested 7 protesters, then turned to the rest of the protesters and told them “we’ll release them without bond if you leave (stop protesting)”
They literally turned their own dubiously legal arrests into a hostage situation. They took hostages. Ferguson PD is a terrorist organization and they aren’t even trying to hide that fact any more.
Look at this
Girl’s are amazing
I think we broke the notes…
i feel like i’m reblogging history. “the post that broke the notes”
THERE ARE NO FUCKING NOTES
WE HAVE REACHED INFINITY
what the heLL
There are negative notes….
WHY ARE THERE NEGATIVE NOTES?
HOW ARE THERE NEGATIVE NOTES?!?!?!?!
what the actual fuck.
are we shitting on this guy because he wanted to go and just talk to a girl. I mean yeah, this is a clear intentional overreaction for the sake of comedy. but are girls really like “ear buds are awesome for defending against asshole guys bugging me.”
I didn’t realize someone walking up to you to say hi made them an asshole or meant they were trying to get into your pants, my apologies.
There’ve been a few of these comments, so I’ll just address this one real quick: nobody’s shitting on anyone (despite the rather graphic claims of the clearly intentionally overreacting dude who posted this). We - as in women - are sharing a profound truth about social interactions while being in public. Namely, that the overwhelming majority of times that men (not “someone,” men) walk up to us to say hi, they are trying to get into our pants. And this is based on experience. This is not based on us being full of ourselves. This is not based on one bad interaction amidst a plethora of good ones. This is us saying, “we’ve had numerous interactions in public with men we do not know, and we’ve decided that the number of times that we have a nice, pleasant conversation does not outweigh the number of times we have had a gross or unpleasant conversation. So we’ve decided to take steps to put up boundaries rather than risk the gross or unpleasant conversations.”
I mean, go and read through the reblogs of this - women talk about men who have literally ripped the earbuds out of these women’s ears in order to ask them their names, or to “just say hi.” Do you really think that men who do this are just being friendly? Then why don’t we hear about this happening to men from women invading their space and bothering them? Why don’t we hear men complaining about other men doing it, or women complaining about other women doing it? Doesn’t the fact that these experiences are all going one way - that they are all women talking about the times that men have done this to them - register with you at all?
And do you really think all the women who are, in your view, shitting on this guy are doing so out of some bizarre desire to be mean? Or is it possible that they are recognizing a type of man that they have had numerous run-ins with and have learned to defend themselves against, and they are happy to hear that their defense is working? Is it just barely possible that women are laughing at this man because they are glad to see a confirmation of what they’ve long suspected, which is that male strangers approach them, it’s rarely out of a genuine friendliness but rather a desire to fuck her?
Because heres’ the thing: you’re pretending that all this guy wanted to do was “just talk to a girl,” but that’s total bullshit based on what the poster actually said - he has a crush on her, he was planning a “cold approach,” he was angry enough at being prevented to write a very badly-written rant about it. He did, in fact, want into her pants. And a woman has every right to shut that down at whatever stage she damn well pleases.
Also, if this guy was going for comedy, he deserves to be made fun of for being such a shitty comedian.
Its rants like this that make nice guys scared to approach women. Women wonder why actual nice guys never ask them out, here’s why, we’re terrified of being lumped in with the assholes who ask you out, stop assuming all men want the same thing, its not a majority of men, its a majority of men who are ballsy enough to approach. And why do the nice guys never approach, just when we work up the nerve to ask you out, youve gone and ranted about how all guys wanna do is fuck you. And we lose our nerve again.
OK listen close here, because you’re not getting it. If. You. Want. To. Hit. On. A. Complete. Stranger. Based. On. The. Fact. That. You. Think. She. Is. Attractive. Without. Knowing. Anything. Else. About. Her. Then. You. Are. Not. A. Nice. Guy. And. You. Are. In. Fact. One. Of. Those. Assholes.
Maybe. I’d. Like. To. Get. To. Know. Her? Maybe. I’m. Not. Just. Trying. To. Fuck. Her? MAYBE. I’m. Willing. To. Take. A. Chance. On. A. Stranger?And that’s the WHOLE PROBLEM, because you expect your willingness to take a chance on a female stranger to be the end of the debate. You’re completely ignoring the fact that women get to decide whether they want to take a chance on a male stranger - and you’re also being incredibly dishonest about what “take a chance” means for men and women. For you, “take a chance” means “risk that my sexual interest in this woman will not lead to a relationship.”For that woman you’re asking out, “take a chance” for a woman involves weighing the risk that you will beat, rape, assault, or kill her.This conversation isn’t happening in some mythical land where rape and assault never happens, or happens to all genders equally. This is the real world, where women (both cis and trans, btw) are at a disproportionate risk of violence from men. And we have been taught over and over and over again that if men are violent towards us, often we will be blamed for it. So while you’re deciding if you want to date the barista at your coffee shop, she’s deciding if turning you down will mean that you’ll throw that hot coffee she just poured for you in her face.Approaching a woman you don’t know and asking her out right away is a huge red flag, because by asking for a date without any other information about her, you have indicated a number of things:
- you think your sexual interest in her entitles you to find out more about her and determine whether or not you are interested in her as a person
- you do not think of her as a threat in any way; of the two of you, you believe yourself to be the more powerful person, and thus you are risking very little by starting a relationship with a stranger
- you believe the onus should be on her to refuse, even though you have given her no reason to believe you will accept refusal gracefully, because
- you are willing to break the social contract (that being that people leave each other alone in public places) merely because you are sexually attracted to herSo with all that in mind, she has to decide whether or not to agree to a date with you, a man she doesn’t know. And as a bonus, she gets to draw on her entire experience as a woman who has been in this situation before, and can compare men who have done similar things and recall how they have behaved. In the majority of cases, men who approach female strangers in public settings in order to ask them out behave badly. So why should she believe that you’re any different? What evidence does she have that you will be safe to be around?The reason nice guys don’t ask women out like this is because they’re nice guys - genuinely nice guys - who understand that there are many, many different ways to meet women and date and form relationships. They’re not scared by rants like this; they agree with them.
can I get a citation of women complaining that no nice guys approach them? i’ve mostly seen women complaining of being approached by assholes. which is more likely to mean ‘i just want people to leave me alone’ than ‘i want non-assholes to approach me’
jeffl95, here’s a newsflash for you:
If you are so much more concerned with your lonely little feelings and frustration with rejection than you are about a woman’s entirely legitimate fears that any random guy approaching her might well be a dangerous asshole, you need to understand that you are not a nice guy.
"It’s not the MAJORITY of guys, just the MAJORITY of those who are ballsy enough to approach"
And if those are the ones that approach us, how the fuck are we to ever safely presume any man approaching us is different? You see all this talk of women being terrified and paranoid and highly on the defense any time they go out in public, and your concern isn’t “what is happening that these women are so constantly afraid of men and feel safer avoiding contact with unknown men altogether? What can I do in this world to help women to feel and be safer, to give them less reason to be afraid of all men?”
but instead you’re huffing and sighing about “I’M SUCH A NICE GUY BUT CHICKS WON’T GIVE ME A CHANCE WE AREN’T ALL ASSHOLES TAKE A CHANCE ON ME RISK YOUR LIFE FOR ME BECAUSE I SAY THAT I’M NICE AND DIFFERENT”
You’re not a fucking nice guy.
You’re a whining, entitled assbag.
I want to add something that I’m not sure was explicated strongly enough in this excellent conversation. It doesn’t matter if you’re a good person or a bad person. No one is under an ethical obligation to be receptive to communication. We are not discussing asking for help or other understandable niceties of conversation; we are discussing wanting to converse with a stranger. Male or female someone’s decision to wear earbuds is entirely their own and has no bearing on anyone else around them. To be angry that someone is wearing ear buds is, by definition, privilege.
People who are angry at other people wearing ear buds (in this case specifically men angry with women) are only justified if the act of speaking to someone is a right that has somehow been thwarted. It has not. Most of this thread focuses on the difference social experience makes when entering into and having a conversation and that’s important, but the entire conversation is a non-starter. This poster’s rage that a woman was wearing ear buds and every ensuing comment about “nice guys” and “cold approaches” doesn’t matter. Also, ironically, it isn’t about women: it’s about the privilege of the men who believe they are entitled to speak to these women. Sometimes people don’t want to talk and it doesn’t matter if they don’t want to talk to you or just don’t want to talk. Everyone has the right to not converse regardless of intention.
On the topic of men approaching women who don’t want to be approached, can I also add and hopefully make some people aware that there are individuals out there who don’t want to be spoken to period. Be it unfriendliness, being disinterested in social interaction, being fearful or the situation not being exactly good for a public interaction. As a retail worker part of the management team, I work the evening shift 9 times out of ten which I’m comfortable with until the part where it’s time for me to head home. Usually the time is anywhere between 9:00pm and 11:45pm (mostly the latter). Because of the neighborhood I live in and the interactions I’ve had before, I don’t want to be spoken to or approached when I’m trying to go home or even to work at 12-2pm.
No woman would want to be spoken to or approached at this time of night, let alone by a complete stranger. So having my headphones on makes me feel safer— safest when I actually have my music off but pretend its playing. It’s in these situations where I can hear if someone is following me and quicken my pace to my apartment. I’ve had “nice guys” try to speak to me before and after work (in broad daylight). I’ve had men grab my arm when I brush passed them. I’ve had men ask ‘what the fuck is wrong with me’ ‘why are you being like that’ when I blow off their approach before they can even start talking. I’ve had men call me a bitch while I’m waiting to get my fucking food for take out after I’ve told them I’m not interested in talking to them or accepting their compliments or dating after they tugged my headphones off to get my attention. Disrespectful men who don’t know how to read the atmosphere. I walk around with all barriers up, ear buds+the resting bitch face and men still pull the “you’re pretty you should smile” bull shit when I walk by them as I resist the growing urge to scream at them to fuck off because I’m already irritated enough as it is.
There exist women who aren’t interested.
There exist PEOPLE who aren’t interested.
And believe it or not, PEOPLE ARE VERY HARD TO TRUST. As a person who has been hurt by PEOPLE too much to even comprehend, I’ve resigned myself to preventing them from happening in public with strangers. I even avoid interaction with people online I don’t trust. Yeah, some people think I may take the childhood ‘Don’t talk to strangers’ golden rule too far, but I’d rather do that than end up in a situation that could hurt me, be it physically or mentally.
Fuck that noise…I’m not being a bitch to you, I’m saving myself.
Say what you want, but all I see is…dragon scale gloves.
I COULD HAVE DRAGON HANDS
I HAVE A MIGHTY NEED

WHAT THE FU
BREAKING: Seattle becomes the first city to raise its minimum wage to $15/hour. SHARE if Congress should take Seattle’s lead!
the current minimum wage (at least in NY) is $8.00 and less than a year ago it was $7.25, so yes.
Nope nope and nope. Make better decisions and life and you won’t be working a minimum wage job.
^ That’s literally the dumbest fucking thing I’ve ever read in my life. Are you the kind of person that goes up to homeless people and tells them to get a job? Good fuuuuuuuuuuuucking lord. If everyone was able to get a “better” job, there would be absolutely no-one populating the mass expanse of the workforce. Are you unable to see how this suggestion is completely and utterly illogical? And extremely rude?
Thank god people in Seattle have good heads on their shoulders so single mothers working 3 minimum wage jobs to feed their children can finally be treated like actual live human beings with needs and not capitalistic automatons.
"Just get a better job" is the most white bread privilege shit I’ve ever heard.
I don’t even think it’s white privilege. I think it’s just near-bottomless dumbfuckery.
"Get a better job," they said.
Suddenly, every custodian everywhere quits their job and gets a better one. Now, upon entering public restrooms, everyone is handed a spray bottle and toilet brush, because now they have to scrub their own shit out of that public porcelain throne. Women’s restrooms come complete with plastic bags, because they have to bring their soiled period products home with them and dispose of them at home, because there is no more public waste removal.
"Get a better job," they said.
All fast food employees quit and find a “better job”. No more fast food places! There also aren’t any restaurants. Better learn to cook your own shitty garbage burgers. You have only yourself to yell at if you forget the cheese.
"Get a better job," they said.
Retail stores no longer have any employees. All shopping must be done online, but you have to drive out and pick up the supplies yourself because the Fedex people quit and got better jobs, too.
"Just get a better job," they said!
You now have to grow and make every single thing you ever consume for the rest of your life, because no one wants to do it for you at $7 an hour.
^ THE LAST COMMENT THOUGH FUCKIN AMEN
