Male Privilege #14
aboutmaleprivilege: Nobody tries to take away your right to use a condom. Nobody hammers into your head that you should feel guilty and shameful about preventing your gift-from-God sperm from fertilizing an egg and thus ensuring the birth of a beautiful child. No politician tells you using condoms makes you a slut. Nobody bombs a convenience store that sells condoms, threatens people who put...

“The experience of being raped has touched every aspect of my life. People like Ron Rosenberg, the PR head for Tomb Raider, tend to talk about rape like it’s some character-building challenge to overcome, a wound that heals into scar tissue, making you tougher. That’s a fundamental misunderstanding. Rape isn’t a scar, it’s a limp — you carry it with you as long as you’re alive, and it makes...
Having the two guys that nearly the entire fandom wants to get together make this video is Reason a-Gajillion why Teen Wolf is the best show on TV, and gay men should henceforth always be in charge of genre television. teenwolf: VOTE NOW, or we’ll sink this ship.
I keep waking up in the middle of the night, like now, completely disoriented. I don’t know where I am - what country, what city, what house, what room - and I don’t know who I’m sharing a room with. I had dinner with Julia tonight, who lives maybe a five minute drive away, but just now when I woke up, and as I fumbled for the direction I thought my phone was in, I was concerned that the light...

How the Logic of "Friendzoning" Would Work If...
*Man walks into a store and finds employee*
Man: Alright, I've had enough. Why haven't you guys hired me?!
Employee: Uh...well sir, when did you put in your application?
Man: I never filled out an application.
Employee: Well sir, we can't consider you for employment if you've never filled out an application.
Man: No, that's bullshit, because I've been coming here for years now, and every single time I tell you all how much I love this store and how much I appreciate your customer service, unlike some of your other customers might I add!
Employee: Well, but that doesn't-
Man: AND I even told you that I didn't have a job!
Employee: But sir, that doesn't indicate to us that you would like a job at our store. And again, if you've never filled out an application, we can't consider you. Besides, we're not hiring.
Man: OH! Not hiring, HA! What a laugh. I see your store go through seasonal workers all the time. They come and go like nothing, but you won't consider me as a part-time employee even though I KNOW you've been looking for workers to fill positions? That's insane!
Employee: Sir, we've been looking to hire a few people for management positions. Do you have any management experience?
Man: Well no, but what does that matter?
Employee: ...Well sir, that's what we're looking for. You won't be suitable for the position without management experience.
Man: Oh that's such a load of crap. You know, you'll be waiting around a long time for a manager if you don't lower your standards a little. Who cares if someone knows how to manage a store? I LOVE this store and I'm willing to work here, that's all that should matter to you.
Employee: That...doesn't make any sense.
Man: NO! I'm done. This is over. From now on, no more Mr. Nice Guy.
Man: Fuck you, slut.
There’s certain songs that I can’t listen to anymore, just from overplaying them while DJing. It’s like saying a word too many times and it becoming weird.
the science of war
We went into the wilderness to count out our ribs split them down the middle, portion out the ragged edges, the shark-tooth ridges an indictment, my teeth worn down, bloody-faced and shy; I’d tried to eat through to your peat heart, lillith toward a baby, and in the comedown, now, we sign off on the swell of sinew, card through the grizzle of marrow, the whirling carousels of primary colour DNA,...
