If you’re in Dublin this week, I suspect this may interest you. If you know THE SINGLES CLUB at all, you may be wondering how on earth they’re going to do it, and from what the writer tells me, they’re certainly going for it.

This is my uni, looking forward to seeing it this week. 

"The old white dudes that are in charge of everything are scared as fuck of YOU."
Gerard Way’s message to the young women in the crowd. Fonda Theatre 10/14/14. (via sky3cifervalo)

I.
five sets of two hands, fingers spread wide
my best friend lying next to me squeaks out
“never have I ever masturbated”
a chortle and a shrug between the boys as they flick down their obligatory fingers
and I can’t help but feel a twinge in my stomach as my pinky follows suit
the silence in the room is thick and grey and suddenly sliced by
“…really?”
yes really.
have you ever experienced fun?

II.
I pull away a hair caught in my scarlet lipstick
in my reflection I see my table mate from english class
behind me she blinks twice and scoffs
“who are you trying to impress?”
the bathroom door is closed behind her before I can ask
the last time she did something to impress herself.

III.
before a trip to the mall
one of my friends spends two hours
perfecting her bronzer
and choosing the perfect pair of shoes
the other rubs in dry shampoo
and is out the door in less than five minutes
they are two of the most beautiful girls I’ve ever seen.

IV.
my father calls me beautiful through a mouthful of popcorn
as I pour a glass of milk to accompany my now third piece of leftover birthday cake
he plants a kiss on my cheek and I grin as I wipe it away.

V.
she asks me what to do to start loving herself
and I send her away to my full length mirror
and demand to only speak to her
when she’s found something to adore
the way I did with my knobby knees
and tiger-striped hips
and big square teeth
fifteen minutes go by
and she finally points to the freckles on her nose
splits into a grin
the one that makes everyone weak in the knees
and I watch the lightbulb go off above her head
as she realizes
it’s never been her job to hate her body

VI.
i tell my sister she looks cute today
and the look on her boyfriend’s face
when she blurts out “damn right I do!”
is priceless.

VII.
I used to worry that I’d never find someone who loved me at all
and now my biggest fear
is finding someone who can adore me as much as I’ve come to.

The abuse Zoe Quinn and Anita received was discovered to be manufactured by their own hand.

Long answer: No it wasn’t. The police and FBI (in Anita’s case) believe threats to be genuine. Some guys on Twitter think they’re fake. 

Want to test? Tweet in support of either and see how long it takes to get threatened. I have. Sneaky, cowardly, anonymous people who like to put others down. There are lots of them. (Yes that was a jibe at you)

Short answer: Go fuck yourself.

You can’t pick and choose what parts of feminism you want. You can’t support your queer sisters but not your trans sisters. You can’t support your fat sisters but not your sisters of colour. Being a feminist means creating a positive and equal space for women. The second you start excluding women based on which characteristics you do or do not find appealing you have defeated the whole point of being a feminist.
