"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”

What do you do when your vintage tv doesn’t fit in your house? Use it as an outdoor table for succulents and dinosaurs. Obviously.

Introducing my beautiful new little fur baby, Peggy.  Peggy was being used for breeding, and wasn’t producing enough puppies according to her previous ‘owner’ and therefore was no longer of use to him. I’m going to give you the most loving new home, little Peggy Sue.

"Keaton Henson spends his time alone, writing songs and sometimes drawing, he doesn’t like to talk about himself."

Keaton Henson, my new favourite obsession, writes some of the most heartbreaking and beautiful songs I’ve heard in a long time. AND to top that off, he’s also an amazing artist.

I’m in love.
