Touching a woman inappropriately on the first date will get you further with her than not touching her at all. Don’t let a woman’s faux indignation at your boldness sway you; they secretly love it when a man aggressively pursues what he wants and makes his sexual intentions known. You don’t have to be an asshole, but if you have no choice, being an inconsiderate asshole beats being a polite beta, every time.

"The Sixteen Commandments Of Poon" by Roissy

This blog is one of the most disgusting, misogynistic pieces of shit ever. Be warned, I’m posting a few more quotes below:

"Oh, but the fat chicks and their fatty fucking weirdo enablers just love to accuse the 99% of normal men who prefer thin hotties of lacking the courage to come out of the fatty fucker closet. Now where have we heard that insipid line of argument before? ooOOOOga! ‘In other words, Guys Who Like Fat Chicks are not make-believe. We’re out there.’ So are sheep fuckers and necrophiliacs." - Why European Girls Stay Thin

"The insistence by fatty fat fatty apologists and the misfit motley crew of "cultural conditioning" feminists that Marilyn Monroe was a plump woman… is nothing but the oinks of lying propagandists who want you to believe that men have since been somehow magically programmed to prefer anorexic chicks over their true preference for supposed chubsters like Monroe. For a long time this claim went unanswered… because loudmouthed, ugly femcunts have cowed journalists and pundits into abject submission. But now the facts are in: Marilyn Monroe was a SLENDER BABE…

The fattening of American women is a goddamned fucking TRAGEDY. It robs the country of beautiful women, and thus robs American men of tactile sexual pleasure and aesthetic visual pleasure. Game isn’t so much about being able to play the field in perpetuity as it is about navigating a shrinking dating pool of sexy slender chicks getting squeezed by an advancing army of fat chicks. It’s been written here before: as the expendable sex, men react to conditions in the sexual market; they don’t create those conditions. And right now conditions are Code Well-Fed, mothafuckaaaaaa.” - Marilyn Monroe Was Skinny

"False rape accusations seem to be on the rise. I remember reading a startling factoid somewhere that fully 50% of all rape charges are false. Can anyone dig up the data? I’d be curious if the trendline on FRAs is rising. This is not to say that alpha males never do bad shit… But women are manipulative little creatures given the right incentives, and those who aren’t in love know they can leverage a wealthy and famous alpha male’s vices into personal gain and profit. This doesn’t happen as often as it could, because women involved with alpha males are usually in love with them, the power of being alpha and the influence it has on women’s feelings being what it is. It’s the loveless whores that alphas need to be wary of. (Paging Tiger Woods.) My suggestion to alpha males: If you’re gonna fuck around with the help and the strippers, throw them a bone occasionally. Tell her she smells nice, and you smiled when you thought about her today." - DSK And False Rape Accusations

This asshole right here embodies why feminism is still necessary. The overload of misogyny and just plain hatred on his site is incredible. This is where rape culture, body hate and slut shaming is reinforced. Not that I’m suggesting anything, but he also has open comments.

Scalia: Women Don't Have Constitutional Protection Against Discrimination

The equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution does not protect against discrimination on the basis of gender or sexual orientation, according to Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

In a newly-published interview with the legal magazine California Lawyer, Scalia said that while the Constitution does not disallow the passage of legislation outlawing such discrimination, it doesn’t itself outlaw that behavior.

So the conservative argument about the ERA duplicating existing law just went out the window…

Feminism is a socialist, anti-family, political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.

Pat Robertson, in a 1992 fundraising letter to Iowans asking them to vote against an amendment granting women equal protection and rights under the state constitution.

Eh, I can get behind the socialist thing…

Sarah Palin’s Brand of ‘Feminism’ More Popular With Men Than Women

Sarah Palin’s Brand of ‘Feminism’ More Popular With Men Than Women

I wonder why…

Palin peddles a shallow narcissism dressed in ‘empowering’ feminist language.

Listen up, all you champions of women’s rights, Sarah Palin has a message for you. All that stuff about equal pay, controlling your own body, putting an end to domestic violence and rape: that’s a whole lotta tired old hooey. There’s a new feminism afoot, a feminism that’s moved beyond the issues of economic justice and your right not to be beaten and violated, and it’s all about Sarah.

In her new book, America By Heart, Palin takes aim at the feminists who blazed the trail to political agency that Palin now walks, accusing Hillary Clinton of “bra-burning militancy” and Gloria Steinem and second-wave feminists of obsession with domestic violence and rape.

Read More

This woman would not know feminism if it crept up behind her and yelled “boo!” - And then subsequently explained all the things Sarah enjoys now (like running for national office and having a career without anyone having the right to tell her to stay home and take care of her five kids, one with special needs, because that’s what women do). I wonder if she’s ever realized that the kind of “feminism” she’s espousing would lead to her knowing her place, getting back in the kitchen and making a sandwich for Todd, while keeping her mouth shut and not being more famous or making more money than him - that’s the picture I see from “conservative feminism.”

Betty White has had countless roles over her award-winning career, but now she has a gig she’s always wanted: “Forest Ranger.”
The actress known for her roles on “The Golden Girls” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” was made an honorary ranger Tuesday by the U.S. Forest Service, fulfilling a lifelong dream fueled in part by her love of visiting Yellowstone National Park as a girl.
White, 88, said that as a young girl she wanted to be a forest ranger, but women weren’t allowed to have the job.
On Tuesday, the Forest Service presented her with a badge and a ranger’s Stetson hat, which she donned during a ceremony at the Kennedy Center. When Smokey Bear arrived mid-ceremony, White gave him a big bear hug and later asked to take the Forest Service mascot with her. She settled for a toy Smokey with its own small hat.
"Wilderness is harder and harder to find these days on this beautiful planet, and we’re abusing our planet to the point of almost no return," White said. "In my heart I’ve been a forest ranger all my life, but now I’m official."

Is there anything Betty White CAN’T do?

I don’t care who anybody sleeps with. If a couple has been together all that time—and there are gay relationships that are more solid than some heterosexual ones—I think it’s fine if they want to get married. I don’t know how people can get so anti-something. Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don’t worry about other people so much.

Pro-Life is Anti-Woman George Carlin  

I. Love. George. Carlin.

“They will do anything for the unborn but once you’re born, you’re on your own.”

“Conservatives want live babies so they can have dead soldiers.”

“Not every ejaculation deserves a name!”

Oh, George Carlin.

Always relevant. :P

“If you’re pre-born, you’re fine; if you’re preschool, you’re fucked.”

"You don’t see any of these pro-lifers volunteering to adopt a crack baby, do you? No, because that’s something Christ would do."

Oh, George, you left us at precisely the wrong time…

"It also serves as a reminder to men in the UW community that sexual violence is something that must be confronted head-on.  Before donning a pair of glittered-out fire engine red platform heels for the walk, Dean of Students Dave Cozzens told his fellow walkers they must all take action in order to stop sexual violence from happening.“We have to recognize it is our responsibility to confront one another about a culture that often teaches men how not to deal with their emotions and often defines relationships as about control,” Cozzens said. “We need to take more responsibility to take better care of each other. We have to create a community where we take action.”Taking action can be as simple as quashing misogynistic humor, he said.“Take the high road by declaring the values of humanity and equality, not to mention safety and decency. Challenge a story, joke or someone’s behavior,” Cozzens said. “A male bystander who laughs along with a joke, laughs along with a demeaning comment or just goes along with that behavior in fact implicitly reinforces that behavior.”

We really have a fantastic Dean of Students at UW in Dr. Dave Cozzens. I would like to see him as UW president at some point. He is the type of administrator that stands up for his students, trust me. Dr. Cozzens is not afraid to stand up to the kind of bullying and misogyny that leads to sexual violence, rape, discrimination, and a culture that supports rape. I believe it’s truly brave for an administrator at a conservative college to take such a strong stand.
