But the wage gap varies significantly by race, according to an analysis from the research organization AAUW. While white women experienced that 78 percent figure, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander women made 65 percent of what white men made in 2013, African-American women made 64 percent, American Indian and Alaska Native women made 59 percent, and Hispanic women made just 54 percent. Asian-American women are the only group doing better than white women, making 90 percent of white men’s earnings.

Woah, staggering.

staininyourbrain:

let’s talk about how this woman calls herself a radical feminist, how many of you actually are in a mutual with her and allow her to reblog from you and interact with you on a daily basis, and how she is a disgusting person.

because i am absolutely disgusted and i can’t believe she’s being given a free pass right now. why is no one talking about this bullshit?

this is fucking gross and i am SO not okay with sharing a community with such trash, which is why i’m putting her ass on blast.

come for me, i don’t give a fuck. i’d love to see someone try to defend this shit.

fuck this unneccesary, HATEFUL shit.

I have no idea who runs this blog, and I’m glad. Blech.

check the blogs archive it’s only existed for a month………….how r u fallin for thiss

because it literally does not matter to me if she’s real or she’s fake? we should treat all women who take the label on of radical feminist and act like this, whether they’re real or fake, the same. block them, report them, signal boost this so IF SHE IS a troll, NONE of us accept her into our community any longer.


it doesn’t matter to me if you think i’m “falling for this” or not. considering everything that happened with delicately-interconnected aka anarcha-pie 2.0, i’m not taking any chances.

she may be real, she may be fake. either way this is unnacceptable and comments like yours don’t actually do anything to solve this problem, you’re just making it worse by insinuating that no one has a right to be angry about this. we should not be allowing ANYONE who calls themselves a radical feminist, whether they are real or a troll, to take our label and spew shit like this.

I got a fucking buttload of followers today and anyway I just wanted to remind people I have an FAQ and a Before You Follow page and I’m also one of those gender-critical, porn-hating radfems and that’s not going to change any time soon so I hope you’re here for that.

Canadian sex workers respond to a new anti-prostitution law.

A bill written up by survivors of sex trafficking
but i guess we’ll ignore that

reblogging because I didn’t know that, and would like to inform others.

Apparently the goal of the bill is to criminalize the purchase (and purchaser), not the labor sex workers provide. This would then be a very important positive step in knocking down misogynistic capitalist systems.
However, the article linked provides some criticism of that claim, detailing how it would, in fact, criminalize certain aspects of sex labor in a way that damages women and sex workers in general.
Reblogging for Canadians.

And The Native Women’s association of Canada (NWAC) supports decriminalization of prostitution but criminalization of the demand, which is very important since First Nations women make up 52% of Canada’s sex workers : and 95% of them wish to leave the industry.

Help, Menopause Ruined My RV Vacation!

thatbadadvice:

Ask Amy, 13 September 2014:

Dear Amy: When we were dating, my wife was the sweetest woman in the world. She didn’t make a move without asking me. We had a few kids. She stayed home and raised them while I worked. The kids grew up and went off on their own. The wife got a part-time job to keep herself busy. Then she got promoted. Now she works full time, goes to business lunches and dinners, meetings and training sessions. She comes home, cooks and cleans. She doesn’t ask me what I’d like for dinner but makes whatever she feels like. Our plan was for me to retire when I turned 62 (she’s 57), buy an RV and travel the country. Well, we bought the RV, but she can only go on weekend trips. Vacations are saved for when the kids come home. She traded in the car I bought her to tote the kids around for a sports car that I can barely fit in. Now she’s talking about getting a smaller house because she doesn’t have time to clean “a big empty house.” I keep telling her we will have grandkids one day and she will be glad we have all the space. She’s changed so much in 37 years that I don’t even recognize her, and I’m afraid one day I will wake up to a “for sale” sign in my front yard. How do I convince her she is just going through “the change” and in a few years she will be back to normal again? — Mystified Mike

Dear Mystified Mike,

Boy howdy, the ole’ ball and chain sure has pulled a fast one on you! Time was nice ladies like ole’ wifey knew their place. (Slightly behind you but never out of sight, holding a dishrag.)

But here you are today, seeing your wife bring in an income and cook and clean your home while you pine away for an RV you can’t use unless she’s in it—I mean, it’s not like it’s going to clean itself during a trip to Flagstaff, is it?

When you married your wife, she had a lifetime obligation to stay the same person she was on your wedding day. That’s what long-term partnership is about: wives graciously taking orders from their husbands for their entire lives, until they drop dead on the ironing board. You understand this, but your wife clearly doesn’t—and for that, you can definitely blame menopause, the only possible cause of your wife’s desire to be an independent human being with her own interests.

Nothing besides a totally natural hormonal change could possibly have compelled her to seek out new occupations and hobbies after the make-up of her life shifted away from the daily tasks involved in raising your children for you—certainly not the prospect of living under the thumb of a man who takes offense to the purchase of a sports car for the rest of her god-forsaken days.

What, are you supposed to cook dinner? Mop a floor? Have an open and honest discussion with your wife about household purchases and meal planning? No man should ever deign to engage in such offensive activities with his helpmeet. Nevertheless, you may have to gently suggest to her that she’s getting a little uppity these days, and has she talked to her doctor about her bizarre and offensive interest in acting like an autonomous human?

After all, your dinner is at stake.
