our excessive anxiety about offending people at work

For readers interested in learning more about how not to be labeled as registered sex offenders, a good first step is not to rape unconscious women, no matter how good your grades are. Regardless of the strength of your GPA (weighted or unweighted), if you commit rape, there is a possibility you may someday be convicted of a sex crime. This is because of your decision to commit a sex crime instead of going for a walk, or reading a book by Cormac McCarthy. Your ability to perform calculus or play football is generally not taken into consideration in a court of law. Should you prefer to be known as ‘Good student and excellent football player Trent Mays’ rather than ‘Convicted sex offender Trent Mays,’ try stressing the studying and tackling and giving the sex crimes a miss altogether…

Trent Mays and Ma’lik Richardson are not the “stars” of the Steubenville rape trial. They aren’t the only characters in a drama playing out in eastern Ohio. And yet a CNN viewer learning about the Steubenville rape verdict is presented with dynamic, sympathetic, complicated male figures, and a nonentity of an anonymous victim, the ‘lasting effects’ of whose graphic, public sexual assault are ignored. Small wonder, then, that anyone would find themselves on the side of these men—these poor young men, who were very good at taking tests and playing sports when they were not raping their classmates.

Her commentary is spot on.

So if you see Girl Scouts selling their delicious cookies

And they’re like amazing nine-year-olds who will rule the world someday and they say, “Hey, would you like to buy some cookies?” can you not tell them “No, thank you, I’m watching my weight/afraid of getting fat/can’t have them in my house?”

Because what you’re telling those girls is that fat = bad and that weight matters more than trying to learn how to run a business and that cookies are a moral failing. They are NINE. For realz, if you don’t want some cookies, just say “No thank you!”

This message brought to you by the multiple women who said something like that to a seven-year-old and an eleven-year-old trying to sell some cookies in their merit-badge-studded vests outside of a supermarket today.

They had a sign that said “If you’re worried about gaining weight, you can always donate!”

Don’t tell me that’s not some of the most heart-wrenching shit you’ve heard today.

THANK YOU.

So as a fat person and former Girl Scout of seven or eight years who went door to door and stood outside of grocery stores to sell cookies many times and heard this all the time, I cosign this so. fucking. hard.

Seriously, just say “no thank you” if you don’t want to buy some. It’s okay. You don’t need an excuse, especially not an excuse like this — kids already internalize enough negative attitudes about their bodies and self-worth.

The only readable part of Hugo Schwyzer’s latest let’s-talk-about-the-men-some-more Jezebel tripe is the flawless commentary of Spambot9000, a user who is pretending (hilariously) to be a spambot. Spambot9000 crusades for justice - and for lols.
Never change, Spambot9000.

Why do we need feminism, you ask?

  • Not feminism:

    Oh my God, that woman is wearing make-up and high heels! She can't be a feminist. She's just adhering to the patriarchal expectations of femininity! What a traitor to her gender.

  • Not feminism:

    I hate men! Women are so much better than men! All men are rapists and we don't need their help! Men are just there to oppress us and keep us down! Women are the superior gender.

  • Not feminism:

    You're giving up your career to have a baby? You're being dictated to by a man! That's the wrong choice! You've slept with twenty men? Wow, way to show that you have no respect for yourself.

  • Feminism:

    Women and men are equal. No-one should be discriminated against on the basis of their gender. Women have the right to decide how to live their life, how to dress, what to do with their body and who to love.
