They ARE being demoted — from a superior to an equal — and it feels wrong to them because they’re so used to being privileged

Lisa Wade succinctly putting why MRAs are so pissy. (via kagome-mizuno)

To add some context, this professor was asked about the internet phenomenon of “men’s rights” online trolls spamming Occidental College’s  online anonymous sexual assault reporting system with a hundreds of fake, mocking, and sexist submissions.   University officials expressed concerns that student-submitted reports of sexual assault would be buried under the sexist spam.   Wade noted:

The men targeting Occidental’s anonymous report form are mad that women are being listened to, that men’s voices are no longer given so much power that they can effectively drown out the voices of women. They’re mad because they’re not the only ones that matter anymore. I get it. To them, it really does feel unfair. Something really is changing.

Take a minute to watch this video - Scotland shows its support for equal marriage.

Recently had a conversation with a coworker who has marched in the Pride Parade since the 70s when it actually was a march, so have some pictures of signs from the Portland Pride Parade. & vagpanda’s drag mama for no reason besides her green dress was amazeballs.

I cried a little when I saw this photo.

I am truly free only when all human beings, men and women, are equally free. The freedom of other men, far from negating or limiting my freedom, is, on the contrary, its necessary premise and confirmation.

LGBTQ* Bans and Health Codes 

Since 1983, during the advancing years of HIV/AIDS scare, the FAC (Federal Advisory Committee) has placed a ban on gay* men donating blood. When filling out the blood donation questionnaire provided, donors are asked (if male) if they have slept with another male since 1977. If they answer yes, they are then told they cannot donate.

The FAC will be reviewing the policy again in the next few years (it failed to overturn the ban in 2010).
