"Women are the niggers of gender," the email said. "If you killed yourself, I wouldn’t even fuck the corpse."

I blinked at my phone, fighting simultaneous urges to hurl my phone across the room in anger and cry. Later that day, someone texted me my address — telling me they’d “See me when I least expected it.”

I haven’t been out to my car at night by myself since January 2nd.

My name is Brianna Wu. I lead a development studio that makes games. Sometimes, I write about issues in the games industry that relate to the equality of women. My reward is that I regularly have men threatening to rape and commit acts of violence against me.

Aggressive guy won’t leave you alone? Give them this number (669) 221-6251

A new service is angling to help out women worried about how their rejection will be handled by overly-aggressive gentleman callers. It’s called the Feminist Phone Intervention, and it’s a brilliantly simple trick for socially active.

It works like this: The next time you give a man your number to get him to leave you alone, use this one: (669) 221-6251, courtesy of the folks over Feminist Intervention. When someone calls that number, they’ll reach a computer-recorded message of a bell hooks quotation — so you can “protect your privacy while dropping some feminist knowledge when your unwanted ‘suitor’ calls or texts,” the website explains. It works for texts, too.

Bro! So I had a girlfriend once (win, right?!) but she never wanted to have sex when I did. UGH. She'd be like "I can't, I have bad cramps!" or "Not with my parents in the house!" or "I'm trying to drive, you're gonna make me run off the road!" We broke up eventually and I'm glad because she never seemed to give a shit about my god-given right to get my dick wet. Can you say FEMALE-PRIVILEGE??

ask-an-mra-anything:

Seriously bro. Like what do you think your body belongs to you? Do you think i see sex as a mutual experience involving multiple partners actively engaging in each other’s pleasure? Hahaha as if!!! It’s all about my dick. That’s why I can’t even fathom how two cis lesbians can have sex and everyone pities all the women I’ve slept with.

Who is man??? Where penis??? How sex with no man???????? Sex about man!!!!!
