There are lots of women who just don’t think of the men in their lives as potential attackers, and they refuse to think of themselves as victims. They just get on with their lives like everyone else.
Where are their voices?
Well, that’s the point, isn’t it?
Maybe it’s about time we started listening to all women instead of just the noisy ones.
oh right as if antifeminist voices aren’t the loudest. most television shows and movies are decidedly anti-feminist. the strawman feminist is a very common trope in the media. most girls and women i talk to grew up thinking feminism was bad. i did too. and it took a lot of critical thinking, research and unlearning to even approach feminist ideas.
also, i love how antifeminists like you think that we see ourselves as helpless victims even though women’s and feminist organizations are constantly working to fight rape culture, anti-abortion laws and have, throughout history, taken action to make achievements for women
but you know, that’s how a self-made victim acts
More white women complaining about other, often times less privileged women trying to find solidarity and help each other. Shame on us, am I right? lol
Also, fuck that last one especially. I have zero patience for rape victims who want to shame other rape victims because their experience wasn’t “rape-y enough”. You guys can run your rape Olympics straight to hell.
Yeah the last one really pissed me off.
"One woman’s being drugged and dragged home to be forcibly penetrated is another woman’s romance!"
Fuck you asshole.
Also why is it that the same community that preaches “women need to take responsibility for their safety” is also saying women shouldn’t view men as a potential attacker?
You can’t have your cake and eat it too dipshits.
The reason you don’t fucking need feminism is because you’re right under “white men” on the social scale and you’ve got your head in your ass. gtfo
If you aren’t totally quaking in your boots at the news of millions of bees dead, yet again, you’re nuts.
this should be concerning a lot more people than it is
not only because bees are one of the most important animals in the world and their job is a lot more than gathering honey but also because they are what scientists refer to as an “indicator species”
this means that when their populations start dwindling and then rapidly dropping, humans need to watch their shit because that means that environmental factors are too difficult for THEM to live in, so it might be difficult for US to live in, too. bees basically act as an indication that humans have a lot to worry about and when they start dying like this it deserves a lot more than a few headlines.
last year my biggest worry was the steep decline in bee population and apparently thats not about to change anytime soon. people have told me to my face that they think its strange I’m so concerned for the bees. read this you selfish fucks
Get excited, motherfuckers. Without bees, we will die off. Bayer and Monsanto continue to produce the chemicals that have been proven to kill them, and the government has their backs. Bees pollinate 30% of our food in the US and we are passing legislation to PROTECT the scumbags responsible for killing them.
I preach this shit to everyone who will listen and I always get “WAAAAH I HATE BEES THEY STING AND THEY ARE BIG MEANIES!” but think about your future life without kiwis, cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, peaches, sunflowers, cotton, apples, plums, pears, mustard, celery, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, beans, cherries, melons, turnips, canola oil, alfalfa, soybeans, lemons, oranges, and I could go on forever.
Bees are amazing creatures who are responsible for the comfortable lives we lead in this country and we cannot sustain and feed our population without them.
Alright you guys, there’s a good amount of notes on this but it’s only making us aware of the problem, not telling us what we can do to help. We can do something to help and YOU CAN HELP, YES THAT MEANS YOU. ALL YOU NEED IS DIRT, A FEW BUCKS, AND A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME TO MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE, LITERALLY.
Plant flowers that bees like and that attract them.
Bees prefer flowers that are blue, purple, and yellow. Choose flowers that bloom successively over the spring, summer, and fall seasons such as coreopsis, Russian sage, or germander. They especially love clover! Other plants include sage, salvia, oregano, lavender, ironweed, yarrow, yellow hyssop, alfalfa, honeywort, dragonhead, echinacea, bee balm, buttercup, goldenrod and English thyme. Buy seeds online.
GET RID OF THE PESTICIDES!!
If pesticides are killing off the bees so easily, what do you think it’s doing to us? The EPA says studies have shown pesticides can cause birth defects, nerve damage, and cancer. There are other ways to get rid of pests in the garden than using chemicals. Organic Garden Pests shows you how to keep off the bugs the organic way.
Give the bees a free home!
Please, if you have already reblogged this, reblog this is again with what I have posted onto it so you know what you can do to help. We can make a difference.

Quick mention of the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, a nonprofit group doing a LOT of good work for bees and other pollinators, among others.
Guys, if all the bees died we’d have FOUR YEARS to live.

Indigenous Canadian Women Are Suffering a Murder Epidemic
Last week’s discovery of the body of Loretta Saunders, an Inuit student who disappeared while working on a thesis about missing and murdered Native Canadian women, sparked calls across the country for action. NGOs say violence against Aboriginal women and girls is reaching epidemic levels — and around half of the murder cases remain unsolved.
On February 13, NWAC delivered a petition to the House of Commons, signed by over 23,000 Canadians in support of the call for a national inquiry.
