No, no and no. REBLOG this please, this shouldn’t be allowed and we need to spread the word to everybody about this injustice!

"But womenz are so oppressed! "
You realize that he probably instigated her? People dont just do these things. You just like to hear the one side of the story that you want to.
yeah I mean when men beat their women it’s probably because she overcooked dinner or something what a hoe she totally deserves it just like this guy
Just like all those 18 other people she assaulted instigated her! </sarcasm>
Open your fucking eyes.
quietly scoring out all previous comments because they’re all apparently made by either anti-sj’s/anti-feminists or generally ignorant people
let’s put it this way: this is one of many reasons why we need feminism. We’ll state first that statistically, women are beaten more often than men. But let’s continue. Women are generally considered frailer, weaker, more helpless sex, incapable of doing any sort of damage to a person that isn’t emotional. Meanwhile, men are generally considered dominant in a relationship. If anyone’s to do the beating, it’s expected to be them. It’s even just another masculine thing to do.
when we apply these expectations to a relationship where a woman is domestically assaulting a man, the man isn’t taken seriously because the gender roles we enforce on him dictate that “he should have been able to defend himself”, “he’s a sissy”, “she can’t have hurt him that much” and so on. And then the woman is too often let off because “she can’t have done any real damage”, “female on male violence isn’t serious”, “women can’t be dangerous” and etc.
we need feminism so that all genders can be equal, and equality means that when a man beats a woman, that man should be brought to justice, and vice versa. After 18 assaults, Yasmin Thomas should have been convicted with a significantly harsher sentence and that’s all there really is to it.
‘Any offence at all will be sent back to this court and you will go straight down those steps to prison for at least 12 months.’
SHE SHOULD BE GOING TO PRISON NOW. NOT IF SHE DOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS AGAIN. jesus fucking christ.
There’s two types of anger one is dry and the other wet and basically wet anger is when your eyes water and your voice shakes and I hate that cause I feel weak when I’m crying while angry I like dry anger when your face is like stone and your voice is sharp I guess wet anger shows that you care too much and dry anger means you’re done.
This is the best description ever
I’m in tears
Oh I don’t think that last one will be a problem.
i dont think goosebumps books ever came into print i think they just mystically appeared in public school libraries one day already in mediocre condition

THAT THEY’RE NOT TRYING
BECAUSE HOW THE FUCK WOULD YOU KNOW IF THEY’RE TRYING OR NOT
JUST BECAUSE IT DOESN’T LIVE UP TO YOUR STANDARDS DOESN’T MEAN THEY’RE NOT TRYING
this is so important
i’ve been doing research about jobs/companies that are accepting of trans and the like since i’m going job hunting again next month, and i found this list, which lists trans-friendly businesses. it links to this page, a directory for employers.
tagging so people can see it, i figured this might come in handy for some people!
THIS IS AMAZING
I’m about five of these listed above. I’m not sure if that makes me extra weird.
This post. Forget all the posts that try to lift your self esteem or show fluffy kittens because they supposedly will make you happy. THIS POST has made me happier than any other post that was meant to make me happy ever has.I’m a lot of these, especially the car one. I just love listening to people talk, but I have a hard time concentrating on some voices after a while. It’s not that I don’t care or am not interested, your voice is just bland. >.
