YouTube comments aren’t “just the Internet.” They’re not the product of a group of otherwise nice guys who suddenly become evil when they wear a veil of anonymity. YouTube comments are actually a nightmarish glimpse into the sexist attitudes that define the fabric of our own existence in the “real world,” a world that, like YouTube, is owned and dominated by men. The most terrifying gift that the Internet has given us is that it’s shown us how men honestly perceive the world: as a place where women exist exclusively for their sexual pleasure.

In the wake of VidCon, and as more and more women start speaking up about the harassment they face online, it’s time to start realizing that our narrative of progress is deeply flawed. Things aren’t getting better for women on the Internet; they’re deteriorating and ignoring the problem amounts to being complicit in it.

FOR PEOPLE BETWEEN THE AGES OF 18-25!!
IF YOU WANTED TO TRAVEL BUT YOU HAVE LITTLE MONEY, I RECCOMEND USING THIS SITE!

studentuniverse.com

It’s a site for students to travel cheap! This screenshot above is the price ranges for a flight from Columbus, Ohio to London, England one way trip for March. I set ot up as an example.

AS AN AVID TRAVELER, this price is actually quite amazing! One year, i got my (formerly $2000) round about ticket to Japan for only $800! DO YOU FUCKERS KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO TRAVEL ALL THE WAY TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD FOR THAT CHEAP.

It’s commercial air flight, but that’s not so bad when you CAN ACTUALLY TRAVEL WITHOUT GOING INTO DEBT. HALLELUJA.

So i reccomend this site for all!

REBLOG THIS AND SPREAD THE WORD!

I BET THERE ARE TUMBLR FRIENDS WHO WANTTO MEET EACH OTHER! THIS MAY HELP!

fyi ‘satire’ isn’t just ‘hyperbolic exaggeration of the same shit we usually see with a disclaimer that it’s different.’ There actually has to be, like, an element of condemnation in its thesis.

It’s not ironic if it actively celebrates what it’s condemning.

just wanted to put that out there

This week on "Tumblr: Why the Website You Know and Love Is A Fucking Joke"

this week on: PEOPLE STILL FUCKING THINKING TROLL BLOGS ARE ACTUAL SJ BLOGS HOW OBLIVIOUS ARE YOU HOLY CHRIST

Agreed. You all have such terrible senses in detecting mockery SJs from actual ones. You’re quick to pick up anything negative/’outlandish’ just to smear a movement.
