What Gay Guys Think About Vaginas. I was prepared to be annoyed but this is delightful.



One of the worst ways to stop someone from telling sexist jokes is to tell him the joke isn’t funny. He’ll assume that you’re humorless and that he needs to save the good stuff for the right audience. If you really want someone to stop telling sexist jokes, you need to tell him, “I don’t get it” and then step back as he tries not to say, “It’s funny because women are stupid.”

If This Isn’t From a Book, It Should Be (via gaircyrch)

I learned this tip from Mark in regard to people telling racist jokes. A week later I got to implement it for myself (hooray).

Let me tell you, there’s nothing quite like watching some Wonderbread acquaintance squirm as you hone closer and closer in on the fact that his witty fucking punchline was “Asian women are all whores!”

Forever reblog because everybody needs to know this. Force them to come right out and say it instead of letting them hide behind their “humour.”

"Femininjas" - Team Philly - BNV 2011 Finals (by PYPM215)


“The problem with sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, classist, ableist, etc., remarks and “jokes” is not that they’re offensive, but that by relying for their meaning on harmful cultural narratives about privileged and marginalized groups they reinforce those narratives, and the stronger those narratives are, the stronger the implicit biases with which people are indoctrinated are. That’s real harm, not just “offense.””

Your opinion of the Daniel Tosh thing is causing me to unfollow you. Calling people “rape apologists” for disagreeing with you about jokes is the action of an unbalanced person and you probably need help. I guess ultimately if this is supposed to be a question, it’s this: if you feel justified saying these things, what’s to stop families of murder victims from demanding comics stop joking about serial killers? Where does it stop? - whoaskedforthis

Folks, I am speechless.

Wait, no I’m not.

FOR FUCKING REAL? You think I’m “unbalanced” and “probably need help” because I disagree with someone making a rape joke, and other people defending the person who made the rape joke? Making an excuse for someone who doesn’t treat rape seriously is the definition of a rape apologist.

And to you and every fucking dudebro in my Ask saying, “Where does it end? What other jokes can’t we tell? What if I want to tell a joke about (other serious topic)? FREEDOM OF SPEECH?!?!?”: that’s a false fucking equivalency. Rape has been used as a weapon against women, people of color, disabled people, and trans* people throughout history. It is a terrible, violent crime that disproportionately affects marginalized groups. One in four women will be a victim of rape or attempted rape by the time she finishes college. Is it really so fucking much to ask that we stop making jokes about it?

Because that’s all I’m asking. I’m not saying stop making jokes about serial killers or wars or what the fuck ever. I’m asking cis straight white men - the main perpetrators of rape - to stop making jokes about it, and to stop defending people who do. It’s really really really not that much to ask.

So you can cool it with the slippery slope (“Where does it stop???”) and sit the fuck down. If it makes you cranky that I don’t kowtow to the high art of stand-up comedy in all scenarios, I’d actually prefer it if you unfollowed me.

hi i love you
