Hi! I reblog and post things I like or find interesting and important. (Duh?)

I'm a feminist, Autistic, linguistics/speech-pathology student, etcetc. I live in the Netherlands. Oh, and I really really really like singing. And cats.

Alt-text from XKCD: “I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express.”

"Maybe if you go to bed you’ll feel better in the morning" is literally just the human version of "Have you tried turning it off and back on again?"

ijustlovemyredshinyshoes: (tw: rape) someone the other night said "tequila rapes me" and I didn't know how to respond. I just stared at them with wide eyes while my boyfriend acted unimpressed by their comment but I want to respond better the next time someone is "raped by [their] test" or something equally as ignorant. what would misandry mermaid say to them?

misandry-mermaid:

I would just ask them what they mean and keep asking questions so they’d have to pick apart their own statement until they’re either tired of it or realize how awful it was.

Ex:

Him: “That test totally raped me!”
You: “What do you mean?”Him: “I just wasn’t prepared at all.”
You: “But… what does that have to do with rape?”
Him: “Like, it totally took me by surprise.”
You: “Is that what you imagine all rape looks like?”
Him: “No, I just mean it was way worse than I thought.”
You: “So why didn’t you say that instead of using the word rape?”
Him: “I was just joking.”
You: “Do you think of rape as a joke?”

etc etc.  Just respond to everything they say with another question, so they are constantly trying to defend what what meant to be a casual, flippant statement.  If he uses the “it was just a joke” excuse, you can ask him to explain the joke to you and do the same line-of-questioning technique but picking apart the supposed joke instead.
