Cool, so how about only people that pay taxes get to decide what we do with those taxes?
I bet you wouldn’t be quite so interested in signing onto THAT little proposal…


What about vagina-penis interactions? Should we have a co-ed committee? Or does that fall under “about vaginas”?

Actually my favorite part about this attitude is that it literally silences millions of women whose duly elected representative is male.


Good point.

Took me a minute to find this. It addressed an identical argument in relation to the Texas Senate Bill.
"But lets go with your argument that men need to stfu on abortion.  Hell, we’ll even focus on the Texas bill.  If we restricted it to just women, forcing the men to abstain(coincidentally censoring the voice of every woman he represents)would it have even existed? Yes, it was authored by Jodie Laubenberg.  So it officially exists now, so lets look at female senator votes in Texas. 
In favor:
Jodie Laubenberg (R)
Donna Campbell (R)
Joan Huffman (R)
Jane Nelson (R)
Opposed:
Wendy Davis(D)
Leticia Van de Putte(D)
Judith Zaffirini(D) 
(source of vote tally)
     That’s it. Only women in the Texas senate being allowed to vote. Even without the help of men, even in the face of protestors, the bill would have passed.  We restricted the debate to your rules, in the process denied the voices of thousands of women who’s opinion is represented by those men, and the bill still passed.  The problem isn’t men.”

I tried pointing this out to a feminist a while back, and she still tried arguing with me that it was somehow all men’s fault.
Like, feminists cannot accept that sometimes women are their own worst enemies, or that not all women agree on feminist causes, and it’s going to bite all us ladies in the ass sooner or later when we realize that women are not immune to voting or acting against their best interests. (Probably sooner.)
P.S. This is why I prefer “getting shit done” to following any sort of ideology. It’s a whole lot easier to properly solve women’s issues when you’re not wedded to the ideological notion that women’s issues are solely caused by men.

Arkansas residents discover they can’t stop pipeline from crossing their land 

The Diamond Pipeline project, which would transport Bakken Shale crude from Cushing, Okla., to Memphis, Tenn., where Valero has a refinery, came to light when the pipeline company asked the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission to survey property northeast of Little Rock that the commission manages for wildlife. Diamond Project LLC has not divulged the exact route of the pipeline, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says it is a privileged document and won’t release it to the public. However, a rough map provided by Game and Fish shows the route bisecting the state north of Little Rock, and a brochure says construction is to start next year.
When the company contacted Dotson and asked to come on her property, which is being used as a cattle ranch, to survey it, “She essentially told them no,” Alison Millsaps said. “It got kind of ugly. They told her either you let us on or we’ll get a court order and come on.”
On Feb. 20, Diamond Project did get a court order, for a temporary condemnation, and were given 90 days to complete surveys and soil tests. Pink flags now cross Dotson’s land, “smack through the middle of her pasture,” Alison Millsaps said. There’s a pink flag tied to a branch over a cattle pond as well. Theoretically, Diamond is to reimburse Dotson $300 for any damage incurred in coming on the property, but Millsaps said she’s not sure how they would get the money, which is being held by the court.
Landowners who did not know before are learning that Arkansas law gives oil pipelines the right of eminent domain. Diamond Project LLC will have to get permits to cross rivers, streams and wet areas from the Corps, and must file other requests with the Public Service Commission and the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality relating to river crossings, but the state can only regulate construction, not direct the route. The pipeline crosses three Corps districts; the Little Rock district will take the lead in the permitting process. Game and Fish and other interested parties are joining to ask the Corps to require individual permits for each waterway rather than a blanket nationwide permit. Individual permits would allow the public to comment on the impact of the pipeline on wildlife management areas, including the Rex Hancock Black Swamp Wildlife Management Area, Steve Wilson Raft Creek Bottoms WMA and the Henry Gray Hurricane Lake WMA. (Because it is a federal reserve, the Cache River National Wildlife Area was able to, and did, refuse Diamond access to the land.)
Millsaps’ picture of her husband and mother-in-law accompany this article. She said others who are unhappy about the company’s right of eminent domain may contact her on her Facebook page, True Price Per Acre.


Something interesting to note: It is state laws that are victimizing these people. The federal government has done nothing here, and in fact actually protected the Cache River National Wildlife Area.

hey guys i’ve never had a bad encounter with the police so i guess going by hellnoradfem’s logic all police are wonderful people long am i right

I think cops on the whole are pretty shitty a lot of the time.  I don’t hear anymore GOOD cop stories.  As individuals, though, I know a few good ones.  So I know they aren’t ALL bad, but a good portion of them abuse their power, or do things simply to fill quota, it seems.

i do agree that the police as an institution do have a whole lot of issues that need to be addressed which alice pointed out previously, but i will say that one reason you might here tons of bad cop stories, and little to no good cop stories is simply that people are far more likely to recount bad experiences. no one is going to walk around saying “today i had a perfectly civil encounter with a police officer and nothing out of ordinary happened” so it’s possible that there may be a slight confirmation bias there.

how is this the hood. that is clearly a suburbian neighborhood. likeeeeeee can we stop with the casual racism?

For real damn smh

She’s probably studied dance for years and is enjoying the snow, but since she’s black…. yah know she MUST be hood. 
God Forbid her name be Rasheeda Jackson. SMH they’ll be making fun all day.

this is how we know “ghetto” and “hood” are synonymous with blackness for white people, no matter what economic class we’re actually in; you will look at us the same way no matter what, so fuck respectability politics and trying to “polite” our way into civil rights

for the fucking comments 

yeah totes^ but the fact that she casually does a Chaine turn while crushing two snowballs before sliding into a perfect split on some fucking ice gives me so much LIFE 

Though this is definitely casual racism and really gross, I find it equally disturbing how it’s used as a justification to be straight-up racist and also encourage violence and hate in civil rights activism.

As of the 2010 census, the United States consists of 11,078,300 Census Blocks. Of them, 4,871,270 blocks totaling 4.61 million square kilometers were reported to have no population living inside them. Despite having a population of more than 310 million people, 47 percent of the USA remains unoccupied.

Green shading indicates unoccupied Census Blocks. A single inhabitant is enough to omit a block from shading.”

Photo 18 Apr 1,343 notes exposingfakeclinics:

This sign seems harmless enough. But it’s part of a scheme by an anti-choice crisis pregnancy center (CPC) to trick women seeking abortion services. Crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) pose as legitimate reproductive health centers. They have a track record of outright lying to women and work to dissuade people from exercising the right to choose.
Here’s what happening: this particular CPC sits right next to a legitimate abortion clinic (called EMW). That’s one way they cause confusion. Check out the “parking permit” gimmick. That’s how the CPC is luring women to the parking lot and getting them to come inside for a parking permit. Once a woman goes into a CPC, an anti-choice volunteer may try to get the woman to miss her appointment or use shame or scare tactics to pressure the woman not to access abortion.
So wrong.
