beaucoupshade: It upsets me when people assume big girls rarely get any attention from fine men. Like, when I was in a class and I said that D’angelo and Angie Stone were together, people were like “Really? Good for her!” As if D’Angelo was doing Angie a favor or some shit.

just so we're all clear here

stfueverything: anniesghost: What I don’t get is why some fems refer to themselves as proud misandrists, yet scoff when people suggest misandry is real? Because they say they’re proud misandrists as a joke. It’s satire. It’s not real. Also, there could be individuals who hate men for what men have done to them in their lifetime, but misandry as a systematic oppression is NOT FUCKING...
