Blackwatch Plaid

I live in Boston and spend my free time reviewing sex toys.

@Natalie Eve Last night I made a version of these with vanilla extract, and sunflower seed butter, and CARROTS. For real.

@Ellie Well, if it requires a serious answer, it's that 1) she put herself up to be ridiculed when she posted that picture and that response, 2) it's not just that she's not taking third world women and the lactose intolerant into account, she's making it sound like everyone who doesn't have her body is a bad person who is just making excuses, and 3) the picture's implication that having a great body is the most important thing to focus on, rather than the other things that make us interesting people, and that those other things are just "excuses" for not being hot, is profoundly anti-feminist.

@331210412@twitter ...I won't feed the trolls because maybe it doesn't jive with their diet.

@meetapossum I was patting my back pocket for my BART/Clipper card when I realized I didn't have a back pocket because I was wearing a dress, and then I had to root around in my tote bag for it and he said: "I know a lot of lady clothing doesn't have pockets cause you like to carry purses." It startled me so much that I just stared at him in baffled horror, which he took as dimwitted awe, I think. So he continued to tell me that you could actually "carry pretty much anything in pockets, even food."

@noodge The worst bit is that the "mitt-like paws" makes me want a bad photoshop where his hands are Mitt Romney heads.

It's funny how soon women become "crazy" as soon as they insist on equitable treatment. (See also: hormonal, bitch, shrill, castrating, strident, humorless, oversensitive, irrational . . .)

For real, though, that sounds SO shitty. I'm sorry you have to deal with that.

"“I thought of feminism like my mother did,” he says, strains of righteous indignation creeping into his voice. “Equal rights. Reproductive rights. Fair playing field. Let’s vote for Shelly Chisholm.”

“Shirley,” I interrupt.

“Whatever. I’m all for Shirley Chisholm. I went to Wesleyan. We didn’t spell women with an ‘E,’ we spelled it with a ‘Y.’”"

@Lu2 And what about the seven million MRAs who comment on Jezebel all the time? Is he mad at them?

"virulent strain of feminism that has more or less taken over any discussion of gender anywhere."

Yeah, it's like a scourge, isn't it, when feminists push back against men who make women's issues all about them and how "good" they are for centering themselves on every issue. What a bunch of rancid harpies we are, am I right, people?
