So a girl gets harassed, and knocks over some personal property of the guy that was harassing her. She goes home, tells her dad, and he comes back to confront the dude that was harassing his daughter.
During the confrontation, he knocks the harasser to the ground and punches him in the face.
The harasser, then pulls a knife, stabs the guy 7 times in the abdomen and neck and puts him in the hospital.
Go on Jezebel comenters, now that I’ve taken the context out of that particular story for you, and keep defending the guy that stabbed someone 7 times. About how the dad “started it” so he got what was coming to him. Go on now.
But answer me this one question, who brings a knife to protest an
Someone who is willing to stab someone who upsets him enough, that’s who.
OK, not condoning the father for punching someone like that. But bowiecadmium is right: why would you bring a knife to a protest?
I don’t read or comment on Jezebel or Gawker these, but I happened to wander over today.
I felt compelled to heart some people I follow on Tumblr.
Even though I don’t read or comment on Jezebel or Gawker these days.
This has been a post.
The shame of waistband imprints! The agony of sit-ups! The horrors of the jiggly muffin top! Art is the only thing that will ease my pain!
Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen.
btw, once I vented some frustrations in groupthink about being tall, and she responded with this long winded thing about heightism. I wanted to smack her.
DON’T YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS FOR HER TO BE THIN AND SHORT? COMPLAINING ABOUT BEING TALL JUST REMINDS HER OF HER OPPRESSED POSITION IN SOCIETY. YOU’RE THE WORST.
Ha! Does anyone else remember that YouTube video of her doing an interpretive dance about being short? It was like a parody it was so good.
I’d be really happy if I didn’t have to see anymore dumb fucks wishing bad things on people because of “karma”.
Besides being badly written and stupid, this comment is also creepy as fuck.
I don’t actually care. I was just looking for an excuse to use this gif
1. Make a faux pad out of paper towels (not the brown kind! pointy!)
2. Wrap a shitload of toilet paper around the ‘pad’
3. Wrap a shitload of TP around the pad + crotch of your underwear
4. Waddle around the rest of the day hating life.
In the old days of Jezebel, the editors would have posted an article about defiantly wearing crusty cut-offs because they’re comfortable and easy to make, not advising its readership to spend hours making trendy booty shorts.
Seriously. If you’ve got a convex tummy, a big butt, short legs or any combination of those things, then tiny white shorts are not going to look good on you. I know the ones Jenna made would accentuate my food baby and make me look stumpy as hell. (Not to mention sweaty camel toe)
I love Latoya’s work and was majorly bummed when she left Jezebel (though maybe it was better for her to leave, career- and sanity-wise).
This piece is actually pretty good. I was about to talk about how surprised I was to see a decent post on Jezebel these days, but then I realized that it’s reblogged from another site. (insert sad trombone ‘wah wah’ sound)
This part in particular resonated for me.
Many women….have plenty of experience being stared at by men. They have less experience of feeling seen.
This is true in my case, but not because I’m a supermodel or anything. It’s more that, as an Asian woman, I always wonder if the compliments or male attention I’m getting has any fetishism in it. The flip-side of “they all the look same” is thinking that “they all look hot”. The latter seems like a compliment, but it’s just another instance of racist thinking that emphasizes common features while erasing individual identity. I worry that I’m being complimented for being Asian, not for being attractive myself.
That’s why cat-calling is inherently disrespectful and definitely not a compliment. The men hissing or whistling at you don’t see you as you, an individual. They’re looking at a body, an object of lust. They may be staring, but they don’t really see you.
