This cookie belly argument is probably the best argument against feminism I have ever encountered.

Wow.

"There are consequences when you make a mistake like that. I stand behind Ray, he’s a heck of a guy, he’s done everything right since. He makes a mistake, he’s gonna have to pay a consequence. […] I think that’s good for kids to understand it works that way, that’s how it works, that’s how it…

I would totally contribute to that kickstarter.

Back in 2013, Texas resident Larry Davis ran either a red light or stop sign (reports vary) in his Buick in the city of Austin. Despite his insistence that he had had only one drink, he was put in handcuffs and arrested for driving while intoxicated. Then, when he was given a Breathalyzer test by the Austin Police Department, he blew a 0.00. Nonetheless, as KVUE reports, Mr. Davis spent the night in jail.

While at the station, Mr. Davis agreed to give a blood sample as well, to prove he was not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol. The results would later come back 100% negative. Davis’ attorney, Daniel Betts, told KVUE, “My reaction was just shock that this happened.”

The Austin Police Department stands by the arrest, saying they believed Davis showed signs of impairment, that while standing on one leg, he “swayed,” and “needed his arms for balance.” They also suggested that he could have been on marijuana, a drug that wouldn’t necessarily show up in a test. The APD said they’re going by a “take-no-chances” policy. That being said, they did acknowledge how unusual it is that Davis was arrested despite registering a zero on his breath test.

they ain’t even trying to hide they shit anymore

News flash: APD has a big racism problem.  (Oh, wait. Everyone knows that.)

"He doesn’t mean to hurt me-he just loses control." “He can be sweet and gentle.” “He’s scared me a few times, but he never hurts the children-he’s a great father.” “He’s had a really hard life…”  Women in abusive relationships tell themselves these things every day. Now they can see inside the minds of angry and controlling men-and change their own lives. In this groundbreaking book, a counselor shows how to improve, survive, or leave an abusive relationship, with:  € The early warning signs € Nine abusive personality types € How to tell if an abuser can change, is changing, or ever will € The role of drugs and alcohol € What can be fixed, and what can’t € How to leave a relationship safely

[PDF]

This book is an excellent resource for anyone you know who is, or you suspect is, in an abusive relationship.

Hi this has an old link that expired, the original post has been fixed and you can find the pdf here. 

Even though this book is really focused on straight relationships and the abuse patterns of straight men, I found parts of it really helpful to me as a bi woman whose abuser was another woman.

Not only was this book extremely helpful to me as a DV survivor&#8212;it&#8217;s the reason I was finally able to see my abuse for what it was and has helped a great deal with my recovery&#8212;I have talked to countless DV survivors in various settings who swear by this book and benefited a great deal from reading it. Bancroft worked with abusers for years before writing this book and it shows. He really nails the abuser mentality in a way that is so clear and that helps a lot with the process of un-brainwashing yourself after abuse. Every time I get to know someone new who is a survivor of IPV I recommend this book to them. Whenever possible I recommend purchasing it so that Bancroft can continue to do this useful work, but it&#8217;s great to see a pdf available for those who aren&#8217;t able to get it by other means. Very highly recommended.

being femme is not about being feminine. it’s about reclaiming what it is to be strong.

people read as feminine have also been condemned as weak, frail, unauthentic, and incapable as long as time is old. being…
