A lot a lot a lot of parents are perfectly acceptable parents until they have disabled children. They start to blame us for shit and say we deserve what they give us. my mom was a decent mother until she had me.
i hardly ever see campaigns like this.
this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1
A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes
A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes
A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes
A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes
A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes
That’s some bullshit right there.
Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.
Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.

"You’re too sensitive"- that’s a verbally abusive statement. You know, how can you tell me I’m too sensitive? Because I can only tell you how I’m feeling.
* Men who don’t respect consent don’t have a special right to keep that private.
* Men who threaten violence against women don’t have a special right to keep that private.
* Men who disregard a woman’s sexual agency to objectify her don’t have a special right to keep that private.
* Men who abuse women don’t have a special right to keep that private.
I don’t think Bill O’Reilly understands the concept of white privilege.
I also don’t think Bill O’Reilly is aware of the PERVASIVE exploitation and disenfranchisement of asians that touches many, if not most, major eras of the USA’s existence. That’s excluding the stereotypes, fetishization, and erasure that continues to happen today. Because he’s not even there yet.
financial privilege is the only privilege straight white cis christian men like him acknowledge cuz they never have to think about the other things.
