THIS is the perpetual shitstorm I have been dealing with since November of 2013.

My Facebook and phone have received a constant stream of notifications, on the daily, of shit like this. People telling me I’m uneducated, I should’ve graduated high school, I should pull various shit out of my ass/vagina, I’m literally a piece of shit, etc etc etc… on and on. Since. November. Of last year.

Because of a comment stating that this shit is problematic.

Nearly 100 comments of people saying the same childish awful shit (my comments are in red). The bulk of the worst of it was people saying I should have gotten an education, I should get a life, etc. When a 30 second glance at my profile would’ve revealed to them that i am currently attending one of the most respected acting schools in the country* (And it also would’ve revealed that I AM A FEMALE, FOR SHIT’S SAKE. My profile picture at the time was me with Dante Basco and because of my gender-neutral first name they all assumed I was Dante and not the girl next to him. I don’t know which are worse — the comments directed to me while i was believed to be a man of color, or the comments directed to me when I was believed to be a white woman after I changed my profile picture.)

I AM 20 YEARS OLD. I AM IN SCHOOL. I AM A REAL, VALID PERSON WITH SOMETHING REAL AND VALUABLE TO CONTRIBUTE TO SOCIETY. AND FOR REASONS BEYOND MY CONTROL, YES, I WORK AT WAL-MART.

If I truly had the choice, I WOULD work elsewhere. IF I HAD THE CHOICE, I WOULDN’T WORK AT ALL. I am in a rigorous Monday-friday 9-5 conservatory program while working 8 hour days over the weekends. I do not catch a break. But because I work at Wal-mart and because I “don’t have a sense of humor,” I am assumed to be a literal pile of shit.

And this is all on my Hometown’s Occupy movement’s page. These people are supposedly of a liberal, “tolerant” mindset. And They are defending the right of an old man to pour spaghetti sauce all over the floor of a grocery store over the rights of overworked and underpaid working-class people to not be shit on more than they already are by the company they work for.

I’m not sure why I’m posting this, I guess I just need for someone to acknowledge that this is a fucked up and shitty thing to happen to a person. And I’ll admit I am stubborn in that I don’t want to delete the comment because I don’t want anyone to think they’ve proven me wrong, and I refuse to disconnect facebook from my phone because I shouldn’t fucking HAVE to, and the notifications would still come through when I log in on my PC anyway. (Facebook for some reason has no method of unfollowing posts from fanpages. Because I’ve commented, I get notifications to replies to that comment no matter what settings I have. I have unfollowed and blocked this page and they still come through. The only solution is to either delete the comment or delete my facebook entirely.)

I guess my point is that if this is the way you treat people you claim to want to defend, you are a shitty fucking person and I hate you.

*IF you even fucking think about arguing that my chosen career somehow invalidates my use in society, you are also a shitty fucking person and I hate you.

A boy makes a bad decision: boys will be boys

A man makes a bad decision: must be a mid life crisis

An old man makes a bad decision: it was a different time

A woman makes a bad decision: must be her period

Take a wild guess which of these are used as excuses for bad behavior and which one is used to discredit anything a person says

that article going around criticizing women for marrying young

All the slut-shaming responses

why do so many people pride themselves on being “the girl who only hangs out with boys because it’s less drama”

Like I know dudes who would literally beat the shit out of each other over a gay joke

and girls are more dramatic are you fucking for real rn

oh-forsure:

Check out the contrast between these search results. Not a single “loser”, “easy”, “desperate”, “stupid”, “scum” or similar insult in the search results for fathers.

Why, society, are single fathers so often seen with sympathy and admiration, yet single mothers are painted as a washed-up, disgusting strain on the system?

This is fucked.

Men are gross.

UGHHHH

BREAKING NEWS: New study suggests that if you act like a misogynistic fucknuckle, you may have problems with women.

"Our findings indicated that men who frequently shame and demean women are more likely to find it difficult to get a girlfriend," said professor Obvious of Nofuckingshit University. "Their sexist comments and slurs actually deterred women from any romantic interest in them. It makes it seem almost as if women are actually human beings who don’t enjoy being treated like second-class citizens."

Just a reminder, ladies, that you may graduate from Wellesley, then Yale Law School, become one of the most powerful and influential lawyers in the country, then the First Lady of the United States, then a U.S. Senator from New York, come this close to being the Democratic nominee for president yourself, and ultimately serve as the Secretary of State, but you’ll always be a woman — an emotional, unhinged, woman.

From the article Here’s the New York Post with the Most Sexist Headline of the Year on the New York Post’s cover of Hillary Clinton (with a scared-looking Bill in the corner) testifying during the congressional hearing over the embassy attack in Benghazi. (via lcucinotta)

Thank you.

And once again, HILLARY, who calmly answered the same irrelevant question somewhere around 12,000 times is portrayed as “exploding with rage” while the male Republican congressman who literally screamed at her isn’t mentioned.

Anyone want to come talk to me about how sexism doesn’t exist anymore?

i’ve noticed that a lot of people confuse “respects women” with “respects women they consider respectable”.
