We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.

No skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry

The whole article sadly hits very close to home.

hailfrypan:

By the way, as I was writing that, 5 ROCKETS WERE FIRED AT ISRAEL. I can assure you all were intercepted by the iron dome and no one got hurt in israel in those attacks. Just so you know! :) am yisrael chai!

You have no idea how angry i was when I recieved this message, I was close to just throw insults at you but that is not the way to make you listen. You have clearly been misinformed, so let me explain why you are wrong instead. Grab a chair and let me educate you.

"You realize hamas has been telling their people to die for their weapons, and ATTEMPTING to blow up israel"

Yes, I am aware of the suicide bombers, but this is an invalid argument. Hamas never forced citizens to die for them, everyone who went into those missions were Hamas volunteers, who out of desperation tried to defend their land. The last suicide bomber from Hamas exploded January 18th 2005, and I also need to add that Israel had a lot of suicide bombers too. Between 1993 and 2006 Palestinians killed 643 people while the Israelis killed 3638 people (among them 148 children under the age of 15) in the period 2000-2006. x (note: this is a Danish source, but you can still see the numbers are right). However, this is completely irrelevant right now. 

There was a rumor about Hamas using citizens as human shields, but it’s confirmed to be false. The video showed is from Syria, not to mention MORE THAN FIVE MONTHS OLD. x

As you said, Today, the only thing Palestine has is fireworks, which barely does any damage at all. The death count of Israel is one person while 274 Palestinians have died in the last 10 days. There are more than 1500 Palestinians wounded, and only 2 or 3 Israelis. Over 900 homes destroyed, while only one building in Israel is.

This is the aftermath of one of Hamas’s rockets compared to the damage of the Israeli bombs. Don’t make it sound like Israel is the victim. 

"while israel is protecting their citizens 24/7 and using weapons to protect their citizens (using the iron dome) AND GAZA! Israel invaded gaza after giving the citizens of gaza and advised them to evacuate before invading.

Israel don’t have a tough time protecting their citizens, because THERE IS NOTHING TO PROTECT THEM FROM.

These are actual pictures of Israeli people in their bomb shelters. THEY ARE USING #BOMBSHELTERSELFIES AND COMPLAINING ABOUT THEIR HAIR WHILE THOUSANDS ARE WOUNDED IN PALESTINE.

THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE IN GAZA

Palestine has NO ARMY OR WEAPONS, THEY CAN NOT DEFEND THEMSELVES. Israel warns the citizens 56 seconds before a bomb BY USING A SMALLER WARNING BOMB ON THE ROOF OF THE HOUSE. Besides, THE CITIZENS HAVE NOWHERE TO GO.

Israel controls all the movement of the citizens and its borders. They obviously can’t cross the border to Israel, and no one is allowed to cross the border to Egypt either, and as you can see on the map below they can’t go by sea either.

Israel invaded to destroy their weapons, not to kill anyone.”

That is not true, at all.

  • Israel fired 5 missiles at a hospital in Gaza and had threatened to do it again. x
  • Blew up a mosque, a school and a charity building.
  • A 15-year old Palestinian boy was forced to drink gasoline and SET ON FIRE.
  • Hundreds of Palestinians are dead and thousands are wounded.

Not to mention:

  • Israel has broken over 65 UN resolutions. 
  • Their government is paying college students to pro-Israel propaganda on social media. x
  • Three Israeli boys were kidnapped and it’s confirmed Hamas has nothing to do with it, though the citizens of Israel were told the opposite.

Bonus fact: According to major polls, the majority of Israelis and Palestinians agree that a two-state solution is the best way to end the conflict. x

And last of all, there’s nothing for Israel to win. This is not a war, this is genocide. If you had read any of the posts (with legit sources) floating around on this website I wouldn’t have to explain this. As Kathlyn Gadd said; “Blaming Hamas for firing rockets at Israel is like blaming a woman for punching her rapist.”

The weirdest thing is that people talk about “coming out” as if it’s this big momentous thing that only happens once while in actual fact it’s something that you do almost every single day every time you talk to a new person every time you’re in a new situation you’re constantly weighing your options, the ability to be your true self vs the advantages of being a false self and honestly it’s so fucking exhausting

Israel targets journalist offices, then accuses Hamas of using journalists as human shields.

Israel is trying desperately to get rid of international press covering its war crimes in Gaza.

"And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard."

TW: Transphobic violence, murder

A 26-year-old transgender woman was found dead in Baltimore this week, and police suspect her death was the result of a homicide. 

Mia Henderson died of “severe trauma” and was found Wednesday morning in an alley. Her death marks the second trans homicide in Baltimore in six weeks. She was the sister of Los Angeles Clippers player Reggie Bullock, who tweeted referring to Mia as “my brother.”

Violence against the trans community is a pervasive problem. The 2013 National Report on Hate Violence Against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and HIV-Affected Communities states:

Almost three-quarters (72 percent) of homicide victims were transgender women, and more than two-thirds (67 percent) of homicide victims were transgender women of color, yet transgender survivors and victims only represent 13% of total reports to NCAVP.

We cannot keep letting this happen. All my thoughts going to Reggie and the rest of Mia’s family.
