women are taught “don’t send nudes if you don’t want them to get leaked”

men are never taught “if a woman feels comfortable enough to send you a nude photo, keep it to yourself. leaking it could put her in danger.”

if you don’t see the issue here, you’re a part of the problem.

inkyzuzi asked: I love her argument that white women gaining voting rights was vital to WOC gaining voting rights when one of the arguments used in the Women's Suffrage was literally "we should have gotten the right to vote before black men because we're better than them"

Students Fed Up With Michelle Obama’s School Lunch Overhaul — Menu-Item Snapshots Spell Out Why

Wow that is depressing. 

okay but is that michelle’s fault for pushing for healtheir lunches or is it school districts’ faults for cutting corner by cutting calories but not making lunch any healthier?

let’s look into it.

Yes, thank you. Because yes she is pushing for a healthier lunch, but the schools still value football over feeding their students, which means that instead of providing enough healthy food to keep their students from starving, they are cutting down the amount of food available to fit within the caloric requirements … while then taking the money they saved to re-sod the football field for the third year in a row. Maybe new uniforms.

thank you for adding that. i really really doubted michelle wanted this to happen.

Bryan Fischer, Asshole of the Day for April 17, 2014
by TeaPartyCat (Follow @TeaPartyCat)
Bryan Fischer is an asshole. He has been featured on this site many, many times, and has been named Asshole of the Day five times prior to today. Usually though we feature him for his hatred of gays, which is so awful that the Southern Poverty Law Center designated the American Family Association where Fishcer works as a hate group. Yeah.
But Bryan Fischer is more than just a bigot. He can be offensive on many conservative topics, including income inequality. After discussing that the top 1% pay 30% of all federal taxes, Fischer told listeners that the poor ought to kiss the ground that the rich walk on:

the poor and middle class families in this country “ought to be kissing the ground on which [the rich] walk” because it is the top 1% that is paying for EBT cards and food stamps and federal housing.
The rich, Fischer asserted “ought to be given ticker tape parades once a week in all of our major cities to thank them for funding welfare for everybody”

Now of course Fischer doesn’t discuss how the top 1% got all that income— was it by manipulating laws to favor them, creating monopolies to raise prices, inheritance, spending $400 million on an election, or any of that other stuff. He’s not interested in that.
Fischer portrays himself and his conservative beliefs as traditional and Christian. And he has studied religion extensively:

Fischer has an undergraduate degree in philosophy from Stanford University, and holds a graduate degree in theology from Dallas Theological Seminary. Fischer served at the Cole Community Church in Boise, Idaho and founded the Cole Center for Biblical Studies and was the church’s director for thirteen years. Fischer then founded Community Church of the Valley and was senior pastor for twelve years. Before joining the board of directors of American Family Association, Fischer was also executive director of Idaho Values Alliance.
In 2004, he co-founded the Keep the Commandments Coalition, a group dedicated to keeping a Ten Commandments monument in Julia Davis Park in Boise. From 2000 to 2005, he served as a commissioner for the city’s Park and Recreation Department.

But apparently when doing all that Bible study, Fischer missed the parts where Jesus praised the poor and vilified the rich.
The suggestion that the poor should kiss the ground the rich walk on should be offensive to any Christian. And that Fischer represents himself as a Christian and has studied the Bible extensively and says this, only makes it more offensive. So, for turning Jesus’ own worldview of rich and poor upside down to give comfort to the rich, Bryan Fischer is the Asshole of the Day.
It is Bryan Fischer’s 6th time being named Asshole of the Day. Previous wins were for saying
claiming the Founding Fathers only meant to protect Christianity, not other religions
claiming the Senate had been intimated into silence by the bullies and bigots of Big Gay
claiming Obama was photoshopped into the Situation Room photo of the Bin Laden Raid
claiming that homosexuals are just like Nazis because most Nazis were homosexual
people who believe in evolution should be banned from holding office
