A weird negotiation process happening with police tonight.

September 28th

Whoops, looks like I wasn’t the first to come up with the “don’t negotiate with terrorists” line.

Can’t imagine why multiple people are independently latching onto that phrase in relation to the Ferguson police…

She cut off the tattoo of he ex’s name, put it in a jar and mailed it to him.

I seriously love her for this

Y’all have fucking problems

As does she. Why anyone would admire, much less love, someone for doing something as deplorable as this is beyond me. I can only hope the guy got some form of therapy, because most would need it after something like this. -mod ibuki

I have generally avoiding even mentioning Anita, mainly because she’s not a journalist she can say and make anything she wants, but what the fuck.
I went through her site and youtube, and I still cannot find any content other than her Tropes vs. Women videos. Which are already paid for. She got 158,000 dollars to make them. It was kind of a big deal.
So, why is she asking for monthly contributions? And why is she asking for them through her own personal site, where, unlike Patreon,
Nobody gets to see how much she’s receiving a month, allowing transparency
Nobody gets to see whom is contributing money to her
And there’s no way for her to offer more content if certain goals are met.
And while I’m at it, let’s look at the text on her donation page.

All Feminist Frequency videos are available on YouTube to watch and share for free without any advertising. We are a 501(c)3 non profit charity and we rely on generous donations from viewers to make these educational videos possible.

Do you mean the videos you were paid 158,000 dollars to make, are making at the most glacial pace imaginable, which are also the only content you’ve produced?

If performed on a human being, declawing would be like cutting off each finger at the last knuckle.

"Although common in North America, declawing is considered an act of animal cruelty in many countries."
Wake up America.

I know people think it saves them from getting scratched by their furred friends or to save their furniture but it actually makes them more aggressive. Their claws are a defense mechanism and without it they will resort to biting. And, well, who could blame them? Would you be very nice to someone who cut off parts of your fingers? 
Just get your cats used to having their nails clipped early on. I used to clip both my cats claws maybe once every few weeks or so, and one of them was not as compliant as the other but I don’t recall ever being mauled when it came to clipping his claws. 
Clipping a cats claws is actually much much easier than with a dog because where you can’t see the end of the quick in a dogs nail most of the time you can clearly see where to stop with a cat. Or take them to a groomer, if they do cat nails they most likely won’t charge you more than 10 bucks.
Alternatives; 
get scratching posts! Your cat needs to scratch, get them something that they can use as an outlet, and get yourself some catnip to make entice them to use it.
get a cat claw clipper, or find a groomer that clips cats nails, and get their nails trimmed from time to time. 
get those cap things for their nails. I know these are considered pretty shitty as well, but they’re much much better than declawing.

***URGENT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT***
Grindr, a popular app for gay men, now carries an urgent warning for users in Egypt. According to many sources, Egyptian authorities are posing as LGBT people on various social media sites to identify and arrest homosexual people. The app is urging users in the region to proceed with extreme caution, especially when identifying themselves or arranging meetings/hookups. While so far the focus seems to be on gay men, all LGBT people in the area should be cautious. Reports show that Egyptian police have carried out violent raids on private homes which lead to the arrests of several gay men. These men were then subjected to disturbing medical “exams.” Police also raided an LGBT party last year, violently arresting many and sentencing them to up to 12 years hard labour. While homosexuality is not illegal in Egypt, athorities are using sexual deviance, debauchery and insulting public morals as terms for the crackdown. Many claim this fresh attack on the LGBT community is lead by President Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi who wishes for his country to be more Islamic.
For all of my LGBT friends here on tumblr, please be extremely careful as this situation develops. Remember to clear your search history, use private browsing if possible, and be extremely cautious with who you talk to online.

Dear female anti-fems, please open up your eyes and learn about what feminism really is because it’s ridiculous that you don’t think that feminism is necessary.

I mean really, how can you be…
