Born 04/25/89. I post feminist-related things, sex-positive-related things. I also talk about my sex life every now and then on here. So.. you've been warned.
I am majoring in Liberal Arts with a concentration in Women's Studies. I'm married. I like to read comics, play a select few video games, read books, and eat food. I like to listen to power metal, progressive metal, viking metal, and riot grrrl.
Twenty-four years ago today, December 6, 1989, Marc Lépine murdered fourteen women and wounded ten women. He entered École Polytechnique de Montréal with a Ruger Mini-14 and a hunting knife for the purpose of “fighting feminism” by murdering the female engineering students there. He began his violence in a classroom where first he ordered the students to separate into men and women. He asked the female students in French if they knew why he had singled them out.
One student answered no, and Lépine explained, “I am fighting feminism.” Nathalie Provost attempted to defuse the situation: “Look, we are just women studying engineering, not necessarily feminists ready to march on the streets to shout we are against men, just students intent on leading a normal life.” Lépine replied, “You’re women, you’re going to be engineers. You’re all a bunch of feminists. I hate feminists.” He opened fire and killed six women. Lépine continued through the school, committing more murders and assaults (gun and knife). Finally he killed himself. Contained in his suicide note was a hit list of nineteen more Quebec women whom he considered feminist figures.
In response to the École Polytechnique massacre, Canada designated December 6 National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. On this day we also remember all violence against women: we call attention to partner abuse and violence against women which is especially overlooked, like the violence so many Aboriginal women face.
24 years ago today, fourteen women died because they were women.
BALDUR IS ONE OF THE FEW NICE GUYS OF NORSE MYTHOLOGY, SO WHEN THIS CUTIE STARTED GETTING BAD DREAMS ABOUT HIS DEATH, HIS DADDY ODIN WENT TO FIND OUT WHAT THE FUCK WAS GOING ON.
SOME TRIPPY-ASS PROPHET TOLD HIM THAT BALDUR WOULD BE KILLED BY HIS BROTHER HODR WITH SOME FUCKING TWIG. BALDUR’S MUMMY FRIGGA WAS FUCKING ANGRY ABOUT THIS SHIT SO SHE MADE EVERY SINGLE THING IN THE ENTIRE FUCKING NINE WORLDS PROMISE NOT TO HURT CUTE LIL BALDUR.
THE GODS THEN FUCKING THREW STONES AND SHIT AT BALDUR TO TEST WHETHER HE WOULD BE SAFE. HE WAS FUCKING FINE, STONES KEEP THEIR PROMISES. THIS PISSED OFF LOKI BECAUSE HE WANTED MORE SHIT TO BE HITTING THE FAN. SO HE GOT FRIGGA TO ADMIT THAT SHE FORGOT TO MAKE ONE LITTLE PIECE OF SHIT PROMISE TO NOT HURT BALDUR; FUCKING MISTLETOE.
NATURALLY LOKI WENT AND BOUGHT A SHIT TONNE OF MISTLETOE, AND WENT BACK TO WHERE ALL THE GODS WERE RANDOMLY CHUCKING THINGS AT BALDUR. PRETENDING TO BE A FUCKING REASONABLE GUY AND HELPING A BLIND DUDE ENJOY THE FUN, LOKI HANDED SOME MISTLETOE TO THE BLIND GOD HODR, AND HELPED HIM AIM.
HODR THREW THE MISTLETOE RIGHT AT BALDUR AND IT WENT STRAIGHT FUCKING THROUGH HIM, AND HE DIED. IT WAS SUPER FUCKING AWKWARD. DON’T WORRY THOUGH, BALDUR IS SUPPOSED TO RETURN SOMEDAY BEFORE THE END OF THE WORLD, BUT IN THE MEAN TIME, DON’T FUCK AROUND WITH MISTLETOE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON: THAT SHIT IS DANGEROUS.
I’m currently trying to figure out where “kissing under the mistletoe” came from in terms of what we do with mistletoe in traditions today.
accidentally typing “liek” instead of “like”
Oh I’m pissed when I do it accidentally when i’m not being sarcastic. I once made that typo on accident during a serious argument and it pissed me off because it made me look like an illiterate ass.
You know… It bothers me how there are people who will say that they are skeptical when a woman* accuses a man of rape because of that one, small percentage of women who lie about rape, and yet these same people will scold you for being wary of all men* and be cautious about your personal safety “because not all men are like that” despite the percentage of men who rape are higher than the percentage of women who falsely accuse men of rape.
