A hundred years ago they used to put on a white sheet and use a bloodhound against Negroes. Today they have taken off the white sheet and put on police uniforms and traded in the bloodhounds for police dogs, and they’re still doing the same thing.

I bet you can tell I’m a woman,” she said, “and I suspect the rest of the world can, too.”

She said she was all too aware that if she was selected, she would represent several hundred male athletes in the NBA; she would deal with league officials and agents who were nearly all men; she would negotiate with team owners who were almost all men; and she would stand before reporters who were predominantly men.

She did not flinch. “My past,” she told the room, “is littered with the bones of men who were foolish enough to think I was someone they could sleep on.

Michele Roberts, the new head of the NBA Player’s Union (via emilyisobsessed)

“My past,” she told the room, “is littered with the bones of men who were foolish enough to think I was someone they could sleep on”

“My past,” she told the room, “is littered with the bones of men who were foolish enough to think I was someone they could sleep on”

Why is it men always want to turn the extra room into a man-cave? 

Screw you I’m turning that room into a lady cave. I’m going to go in there and read romance novels, crochet, preform witchcraft, scrap book, pet a cat, worship satan, and complain to my friends that you’re not satisfying me sexually. You can go fuck yourself. 

This post haunts me.

like

i was on fucking tumblr when fuckboy was coined

it was never a slur for gay or trans men and it really speaks to me that black language is always targeted as abusive or particularly misogynist, or particularly problematic

like the way white women use black speech patterns and aave to mime abusice and aggressive male behavior—which helps frame black men as particularly violent and misogynist

and what is tumblr good for but spreading misinformation like wildfire, so now these fucking posts about fuckboy being a slur are popping up like dasies, and conviniently no one ever reblogs the explanations that show it isn’t, so

Before today, I’ve only heard or read the word “fuckboy” used (mostly) by other Black people in reference to people who are jerks.

Michelle replied that the dangers of the Presidency were not novel. “I don’t lose sleep about it,” she said. “Because the realities are, as a black man, you know, Barack can get shot going to the gas station”—certainly the first time that this particular demographic truth has been enlisted as a reason to be optimistic about a black man’s prospects.

Barack Obama’s Safety

Michelle know.

#what a heart-breaking reality we live in

She 100% right.

Mother shot dead in Detroit bar after spurning man’s advances  →

Where’s that quote again, that feminism makes men feel bad but that misogyny gets women killed?

Can we talk about how this woman is reported to have repeatedly told this man that she was not interested?

Can we talk about how she informed him that she was already taken even though, as has often been pointed out, a woman’s relationship status should not mean anything if she still tells someone NO?

Can we talk about how this man continued to harass her until he decided he didn’t like her answer and killed her for it?

Can we talk about how several other people were injured because this man couldn’t get it through his skull that this particular woman had utterly no interest in having sex with him?

Can we talk about how this group of family and friends who had just attended the funeral of someone else they lost must now the plan another funeral because a woman had the gall to turn down a man’s advances?

Can we talk about the three little boys who no longer have a mother?

And can we talk about the usual suspects on Tumblr, who often harshly decry misogyny and wave the great feminist flag so that women can be treated as equal and not mere sex objects, have been utterly mum on this incident? 

Or should we just wait until it’s a white man pulling the trigger and a white woman getting killed? Is that when we’ll talk about this?
