Does this need explanation because I don’t think so
so it’s 3:30 AM i’m stuck here at the las vegas airport for 5 hours because i’m too cheap to get a hotel (not to mention that YOU HAVE TO BE 21 TO BOOK A HOTEL WTF). umm so yeah i’m hella tired from not sleeping for the past 5 days but i don’t wanna sleep so i can watch my stuff.
since im half awake here’s a cool story: i almost died this morning from killer hangover, i threw up inside the casino right in front of the poker tables and then threw up all over the handicap toilet seat >___< yeah this morning was awful and i really thought i was gonna die but now im fine and i had the most amazing tacos of my life and i’m really happy beacasue of that
moral of the story: americans party way too fucking hard and vegas is weird
frlendzoned said: How do you feel about gender equality though (not feminism)
As I’ve posted here over 200 times now in response to this same exact question:
Stop asking me the same questions about feminism over and over again.
No two people are equal. Men and women are not equal. This is a biological reality. Feminism forces the state to “make” women equal to men when equality cannot exist. It is a front for big government. You can never be equal in every single way to anyone else.
This is also why I am not an egalitarian.
End of story.
No. Men and women don’t “do the same exact work” for a job. You don’t even do the same exact work as anyone else. You don’t have the same exact qualifications in every single regard to anyone else. Therefore, you are not equal. You are paid accordingly, as how your employer values you—not anyone else. Maybe if you actually compared yourself and your qualifications to your coworkers instead of babbling on with your “70 cents” line, you’ll realize this.
No. The state should not force companies to pay you based on false pretenses and fake economics that takes an aggregate of apples vs. oranges. The numbers about the 70 cents to a dollar do not even apply to you: they are abstractions made on the choices of women to seek different fields of, and different hours of, work. You sound pretty misogynistic if you want to tell women you know what they should choose for their lives better than they do.
No. You aren’t living in a “rape culture” or a culture that treats women as less than men. Not in the western world. Just because you think all men are out to get you, doesn’t mean they are. And if you think that, self defense will help much better than some utopian dream in which rape doesn’t exist. I don’t want murder to exist. Yet it still does. Arm yourself.
No. Just because you think the government should give you “free” birth control and “free” abortions, doesn’t mean you need feminism. It means you need to learn fiscal responsibility and the value of human life. Not everything you want is a “human right” that I have to pay for.
No. I don’t feel inherently lesser of a person because I am a woman. I don’t feel like anyone treats me differently, or disrespects me, because of it. It sounds like a you problem.

In other countries, i.e. non-Western Middle Eastern countries, women are subjugated under what’s known as Sharia law. These are laws that govern what a woman can and cannot do. They vary from not being allowed outside without a man present, to your husband being allowed to beat you with no legal recourse unless three men testify to your one statement as a woman, being raped—by sanction of law—if you’re not wearing a burka, and not being allowed to drive. These are, obviously, cultural problems which stem from Islamic civilizations. These are real problems. And if you’re one of those people living in these countries, then fighting for something as basic as being able go outside of your home, is legitimate. Getting “free” abortions, “free” birth control, and whining about how you’re being “slut-shamed” because someone has different views on promiscuity is not going to help you. These people don’t need feminism. They need Westernization.
