in the hallway today there was a hispanic girl making white people jokes and these two white guys actually fucking said “that’s racist. what if we were saying stuff like that about mexican people?”

and she just gave them this dry look and said “i’m puerto rican.”

Mother arrested after leaving kids in the car during job interview because she couldn’t afford childcare
March 27, 2014

Shanesha Taylor is a homeless, single mother of 2 children, who was arrested for child abuse this week. Taylor left her children, ages 6 and 2 years old, in her Dodge Durango while she attended a job interview in Scottsdale, Arizona.

A passerby found the children in the car, with the engine turned off and the windows cracked open. Once Taylor returned to the car, 45 minutes later, she informed the police officer that she did not have a babysitter for her children.

“She was upset. This is a sad situation all around. She said she was homeless. She needed the job. Obviously not getting the job. So it’s just a sad situation,” said Scottsdale Police Sergeant Mark Clark.

She was arrested and booked into jail for child abuse.

Her children are now in CPS custody.

Update from Prison Culture

An email from Amanda Bishop who has organized a fundraising drive for Shanesha offers the following additional information:

Shanesha has been in jail over a week. She will be out within the next few days when her bail is done by her family. I do not know if the family would like me sharing any information regarding the jail she is at.

She has plans to get a specific lawyer when she is out. Her children are with family

Ms. Bishop also responded to a question about where the funds raised would be directed:

“All money from this fundraiser is deposited into a bank account of Shaneshas mother. The money is currently being used to bail her out. The money collected afterwards will be used for the care of herself and her children.”

Here is a local report where Ms. Bishop is quoted about the case here.

There is currently no more information available. @lifeandmorelife and I would like to encourage everyone who wants to support Shanesha to please donate to the fundraiser for now. You can also continue to spread the word about this story through your networks. A newsreport about this story is here.

We have been in touch with some folks based in Arizona, are gathering more information, and will provide updates as they become available.

Update #1 (4:30 p.m. central)
Shanesha is still in jail at this point. I was able to learn that she has a hearing scheduled on Friday at 8:30 am. Perhaps, she’ll be able to make bail at that point. Please keep donating to the fundraiser.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOST..

"Feminism helps men" in the same way the Westboro Baptist Church helps war veterans and their grieving families.

1) Feminism helps men because it deconstructs a patriarchal society that negatively affects men

2) Our movement doesn’t have to fucking coddle you anyway. Are you seriously that egotistical that if someone wants equal rights, they have to lift you up on top of lifting themselves up?

Kinda contradicted your first point with the second there dude. Just FYI.

I should point out that, given the fact that a couple of people don’t seem to have bothered to read the tags, that I’m being quite literal when I compare you guys to the WBC. Point 1 is the most fraudulent statement on Tumblr, and that’s saying a lot.

Kinda didn’t contradict my first point with the second there dude. Just FYI. Just because men benefit from feminism doesn’t mean that feminists have to actively help men. Remember Symbiotic Relationships? Men and feminism is a classic example of commensalism (though some would argue parasitism, but I’m being nice here). Feminists are not helped nor harmed by men existing in feminism, but men are helped by feminism.

You saying that it’s fraudulent doesn’t make you right… and honestly, if you 1) think that feminism is in any way comparable to the WBC and 2) believe my two above points contradict each other, you are woefully uninformed. You can either reconsider your stance or remain willfully ignorant. If you want sources to start with (since I’m doing my MA on this topic, I can give you resources we’ve used in class), feel free to ask. Otherwise, I’m done here.

I dunno, seems pretty fraudulent to me. Feminism: Jamming fingers in ears and wailing incoherently until the ‘bad thoughts’ go away since i don’t even know when.

And when I make the literal comparison to the WBC, I am referring to actions like these against non-feminist equality groups (not that the feminists weren’t invited to participate) by feminists, and unchallenged by other feminists. All talk, but never wanting the people they supposedly champion to speak, even the women. Kind of monstrously hypocritical, and the comparison is extremely well-grounded in these videos.

Isn’t that exactly, perfectly what the WBC does, and stands for?

Omg you’re literally claiming that feminists don’t challenge other feminists and your second link IS A WOMAN’S GROUP CHALLENGING THE WAGE GAP MYTH.

done. I could hardly take you seriously to begin with and now there’s no hope left. bye.

Ever notice how everybody on Tumblr uses the word “misogynist” but never thew word “sexist” because then they might have to admit that sexism goes both ways?

Ever notice that everybody here uses BOTH ‘sexist’ and ‘misogynist’ and your post is uninformed?

LOL YEAH THAT MUST BE IT

No, seriously, do prove that feminists don’t use the word ‘sexist’. I’m down for a laugh.

Feminists do use the word “sexist”/”sexism”. Most of the people on Tumblr who call themselves feminists are not feminists. Maybe you should get yourself informed on this topic.

Who are you to define who is a pseudo-feminist? Buddy, I’m doing my MA in this, so I’m pretty goddamn informed. Right now, I’m lolling that you actually are sitting there thinking you’ve made some revolutionary discovery by looking at a small sample of posts and making assumptions based on that (which is actually wrong, btw).

"Men can’t be feminists"

Men have sisters, daughters, other female family members, and female friends that I will just assume they don’t treat like an object for the purpose of this post.

So approximately 50% of the US population can not try to help women become equal? And also about 50% of the…

They don’t have to necessarily understand women to give a fuck. Maybe they don’t want to worry about the women they care about. 

For example, I don’t really call myself a feminist but I agree with the end goal of feminism which is equality. But I agree with all of the people who feel women shouldn’t have to be afraid to go walking alone just because they are a woman. I have a sister who gets harassed often because of her chest size so yeah, I care about it because I don’t want anything to happen to her.

And surprise time!

I’m transgender, meaning I was raised to be a “girl” and I don’t appear physically male yet. So I go through shit too because of my appearance and how people think “women” should look.

Once again, I never commented on whether men can be feminists or not. I was debunking that the notion of men having women in their lives meant that they are entitled to feminine spaces.

Well you sound like you are saying men can’t be feminists because you are supporting the opinion that they can’t while saying you are not trying to say if men can or can’t be feminists…?

No, I was purposely not commenting on it because I don’t want to speak for all feminists on the issue. There’s a schism on whether men are allowed to be ‘feminists’ or merely ‘allies’. My comment wasn’t focused on that. My comment pointed out that your reasoning was flawed; not your opinion.
