Intent. I cannot claim credit for this, because I’m sure I read this before elsewhere, I just can’t find the source. Intent is not magic. If you step on my foot by accident, the normal reaction is to take your foot off mine and apologise. You’re not apologising because you’re bad, and no one would ever suggest that your intent was to injure my foot, but you apologise...
So I’ve been enjoying, up until recently, a thread elsewhere on the internet that had begun to transform into potentially a really positive thread. A discussion of a recent, minor incident where a very young child wore blackface for a “Martin Luther King” costume without knowing, or apparently without his parents knowing, about the history of the practice. The event...
Have typed out three or four very long posts and deleted them all. THE PRIVILEGE. IT BURNS.

k-ahmed: uristmcdorf: So. Couple things I kinda want to get off my chest with you guys. I had a little read about your Kickstarter campaign for Tentacle Bento. (For those reading this who aren’t SPM or don’t know about the kickstarter campaign, see links here: 1:Here 2:Here 3:Here 4:Here 5:Here Anyway…. Hmm, I agree with the point of view that you have come up with but ethics and...
An Open Letter to Soda Pop Miniatures
So. Couple things I kinda want to get off my chest with you guys. I had a little read about your Kickstarter campaign for Tentacle Bento. (For those reading this who aren’t SPM or don’t know about the kickstarter campaign, see links here: 1:Here 2:Here 3:Here 4:Here 5:Here Anyway. When I first heard about the game you were proposing to make, my first thought was...
bustygirlcomics: Here’s the clip from Kathie Lee and Hoda! It starts at around 2:40 and is followed up by a wicked interesting article on weight stereotyping (like thinking K-cups are matronly unless they’re for “work”). Congrats on the segment! But UGH! Those women. A bit off-putting having them showing your incredibly inclusive, body-positive comics while engaging in the very same crap...

Just so you guys know, my little online shop is having a giveaway! I was going to link it above, but it seems my ability to make even basic changes to my tumblr is lacking (see the page that SHOULD lead to my shop) so I’ll just tell you guys here! For a chance to win a customised, hand made knitting needle roll, check out my FB page!
Okay, I definitely have a diary entry worth embroidering, now. Ha!
dazegoneby: uristmcdorf: Too busy to Tumblr. New DF version released. I’m waiting like a week or two for the bugfix to come out. Pffft! Where’s the fun in that? I’m determined to fling myself blindly into the chaotic joy of minecarts as soon as possible! … Although so far my fortress doesn’t have a large enough engraving workforce to run tracks everywhere, so...

Just discovered the Street Luv post at Fugitivus
And I can’t believe I hadn’t encountered it before! Here it is, for those of you who also haven’t seen it. It’s a great premise. Following on from the epic, now ancient guest post over at the no-longer-doing-shit Kate Harding blog that covered an introduction to why-women-dislike-your-attention, the Street Luv post was all about women sharing positive experiences of when...

happyiyoshi: [earlier commentary, click top to read all] You know what, I can’t help but feel incredibly upset about this. Not because of what OP wrote, but because of how big of a deal this has become. I think this is incredibly unfair. Marcos, if everyone would have bothered to realize… Quick question to the guys that compliment total strangers on their looks. Who are you doing this...

feministdisney: [cutting all earlier replies because it got too long, click link for full earlier discussion. The person they are quoting is me, Feminist Disney.] ladyprophet: “But you are not entitled to critique a fat person because of their size,” I can’t agree with this line. I just can’t. Now I don’t think a fat person should ever have to hear they are worth less as a human being for...
I’ve heard some people claiming Obama hasn’t done anything for LGBT people, so his recent declaration about gay marriage is meaningless. http://www.equalitygiving.org/Accomplishments-by-the-Administration-and-Congress-on-LGBT-Equality Not doing everything is not the same as doing nothing. Look at that list. Actually look at it. Consider how hard he’s had to fight for every...
Good Guys and Friendzoning →
But most of all, stop thinking that what people so loathingly refer to as the “friendzone” is some sort of purgatory women put “nice guys” into. My friendship is not a crappy consolation prize that you’re left with if I deny you a sexual relationship– and my body is not your reward for good behavior. This. Is my friendship such a worthless thing that you see it as a consolation prize? ...

feministdisney: melloliimo: feministdisney: allye93: She’s a sweet spirit…(caption from the website) This is so not ok I agree… not funny. Wow, a fat shaming joke that posits fatness and eating as disgusting things that are not being capable of existing at the same time as “beauty,” they must be a really funny cartoonist… Oh my god Hey guys, what about opinion shaming? You know that...
fuckyeahfeminists: Republicans, Get In My Vagina! Kate Beckinsale, Judy Greer and Andrea Savage “spread” the message that the one thing women really want in their vagina is the government. via Funny or Die Not sure if I love this one more than the one about Rick Santorum’s candidacy or not…
Aww yeah! Who got some adorable red and blue spotted fabric? And some Made in Britain ribbons? And who’s going to make some gorgeous Jubilee-themed stuffs? Meee! I got the fabrics and ribbons from two sellers on Folksy. Promoting them here because I CAN’T BELIEVE HOW GOOD VALUE THIS STUFF WAS. Seriously, 5 1m lengths of ribbon for £3.50?! What do you think I should...
