You think they're not worth living wage, yet you won't allow abortion because "it's killing a child"??? Your horrendous treatment of gays, trans people, people living on minimum wage, anybody who isn't like you, is exactly what your god says not to do. You are killing them.
Pay people a living wage. Countries with the greatest wealth equality enjoy the best quality of life for ALL their citizens. Side note: the U.S. is the most unequal society among the wealthy countries – in the OECD, only three middle-income countries (Turkey, Mexico and Chile) have a more lopsided distribution of wealth.

I can completely relate to that long comment underneath but I do not understand what the point of the post was in the first place. I mean the woman's sentence is so utterly stupid no matter if said that honestly (in which I understand the mans compairison) or sarcastically. Because in both cases I get the feeling she does not have any idea what's actually going on and that this actually appears on tv makes me angry.
This is great and all and I understand where they are coming from but seriously? By raising minimum wage that high it will cause inflation and the price of living will go up for everyone, not to mention the pay grade for those who went to school or got special certifications to make extra money will mean nothing. I am also a college student who got my first job 8 months ago working retail for $9.50 an hour with no prior job experience. It can be done.
READ THIS And Pinning this because of the comments. Labor intensive versus Skill or Intelligence Intensive. One isn't better than the other. I know farmers, restaurant workers, etc that world harder than most people. Longer than most people. Their business doesn't only stay open from 9-5 like yours does. Their work is not less important. Stop looking down on others and trying to compete with others in your own society. We as a society cannot advance until we have a living wage.
I'm all for raising minimum wage... It's just unreasonable

If A Woman Needs It, Should She Be Spanked? "Why not" says Miguel. "If they don't know how to behave." Frank says, "Yes, when they deserve it. As a barber I've got a lot of faith in the hairbrush." Teddy offers "You bet. It teaches them who's boss" and William (a *TOY FACTORY* owner!) believes "most of them have it coming to them anyway." Wow.
Thank you, Feminism!

Should A Woman Be Spanked? Asked of four Brooklyn men by the now defunct “New York Daily Mirror.” Looks like late 1950s. I know some men who like to be spanked...is that the same thing....can you believe this stuff.
If a woman needs it, should she be spanked?" News clipping from the New York Daily Mirror, c. 1950s ....wtf i'd like to have seen one of them try it on me i'd rip your dick off and spank you with it! muthafuckers
A 1950s clipping from what is believed to be the New York Daily Mirror. Funny how things have come full circle? Once again, spanking is all the rage. 'Cept these days women who are spanked aren't "asking for it," they're BEGGING for it.
1950s newspaper article: Should A Woman Be Spanked? WOW - along with the pictures of four men whose wives probably hated them. Wtf!
If a woman needs it, should she be spanked?" News clipping from the New York Daily Mirror, c. 1950s -- Ahahahaha. The last one. It's funny, but thank goodness times have changed.
"If a Woman Needs It, Should She Be Spanked", from the New York Daily Mirror, ca. late 1950s. Each answer is a unique gem in mid-century misogyny among Brooklyn-area men.
1950s newspaper article: SO many things to be confused and angry about! What is the barber talking about?! Could the toy factory owner be creepier?! Should women be spanked?! WHAT?!
Funny, none of these men look like they ever had a date with a woman in their life. 1950s newspaper article: Should A Woman Be Spanked? WOW

Gail Dines [click on this image to find a short video, which explores popular misconceptions about feminists] -I really like this quote.
Feminism "I'm going to tell the men in the room something they probably don't know. Feminists are your best friends. We believe in your humanity."
Feminists are a man's best friend (and if you don't think that's the case, then you're probably confusing Feminism for Misandry)
I love men. Just wish more men understood feminists aren't out to get them. ~ trish http://www.ArousedWoman.com #Feminism #men #humanity #arousedwoman
I'm going to tell the man in the room something that they probably don't know. Feminists are your best friends. We are the only group that really believes in your humanity. The feminists are the only group that believes that you are not born rapists, you are not born John's, you were not born pimps or batterers. In fact, we believe you were born with the full human capacity that women are born with. And we believe, unlike pornographers, that you are not life-support systems for a erect penises
We also fight to bring awareness and support to things like male domestic violence.
For those who think being feminist = man hater
OKAY BRAVO. WELL PUT THANK YOU. truth!
Feminists are men's best friends
Women. Confidence. Feminism. Quotes. Awesome.
Inspiration, Quotes, Mindy And Forth, Confidence, Feminist, Girl Power, People
Mindy Kaling, and other amazingly successful, beautiful, confident, and inspirational women talk about true confidence.
I really like this Mindy Kaling quote because she says that people are surprised by her confidence. As if she is suppose to feel inferior and not amount to anything just because she is "not white, not skinny and a woman".
28 Most Iconic Feminist Moments of 2013 "I always get asked, 'Where do you get your confidence?' I think people are well meaning but it's pretty insulting. Because what it means to me is, 'You, Mindy Kaling, have all the trappings of a very marginalized person. You're not skinny, you're not white, you're a woman. Why on earth would you feel like you're worth anything?'"
This is a quote from the actress Mindy Kaling. She makes a pretty remarkable statement about our standards of beauty and how women are expected to get all of their "confidence" from their appearance. This quote also reminded me of our discussion in class about overt racism and sexism and how often seemingly harmless questions can have racist/sexist undertones.

Another fine double standard for Women. An #infographic with cute check boxes and a look at depressing perceptions: Life as a Woman, According to Society #feminism
Life as a woman according to society. Sadly, there is some truth in this which is why you have to love yourself and not care what others think of you.
An #infographic with cute check boxes and a look at depressing perceptions: Life as a Woman, According to Society. This really illustrates the double standards women go through. #feminism
This makes me laugh because it's so true. If your not one thing then we are automatically something else. If your not polite, your a bitch. If you are than your a pushover. Neither of these are very positive things to be. As a woman, we are expected to act a certain way but most of the time we don't do it.
An #infographic with cute check boxes and a look at depressing perceptions: Life as a Woman, According to Society #feminism
the closest thing to truth as it gets on what it is like being a woman in today's world.
Life as a woman according to society, ain't this the truth.

This is why we haven't attained gender equality, yet. If all women were feminists, we wouldn't still be fighting against victim blaming, asking for safety in side and outside home, and rights over our own vaginas and uteruses. Let's all stand up for each other, and promote gender equality for a better world.
Why "I'm not like the other girls" is harmful. The truth is, none of us are "like the other girls," if by "the other girls" you actually mean the girls society and media want us to believe we are.
From my 'Feminism' board: 'I"m not like other girls.' This is a great quote and one of the reasons I think feminism is still relevant.
This is a great quote. I had a girl at the Boys and Girls club tell me she hated being a girl because girls can't do anything. She told me she wasn't like them.I wish I could have quoted this.

I like her tattoo because it is in your face and I would hope a version of the same on me would send the message to anyone who views mine that feminism is not a dirty word but rather something to be proud of, something to fight for, and also for people to see a 'real live feminist' in person and perhaps break some stereotypes.
Quotes, Caitlinmoran, Word Feminism, Book, For Women, Caitlin Moran, Things, Girl Power, Feminist
"What part of 'liberation for women' is not for you?" Caitlin Moran is awesome, and one of the things I miss most about British newspapers...
If you are a woman today, most likely you are a feminist whether you consider yourself one or not!!! (Caitlin Moran- "How To Be A Woman" Book Quote)
Feminism Caitlin Moran from her book How to be a Woman. Brilliant, honest, fierce and incredibly funny.
This quote is saying that today many women forgot what a feminist is. Feminism is what got the women many rights to do a lot of things such as the way they dress, vote, speak, work,etc. women should embrace the feminist in themselves.
Caitlin Moran is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Or unsliced bread. Or crumpets. Or possibly biscuits.
Caitlin Moran-How To Be A Woman Book Quote I seriously wonder this all of the times especially when people act surprised to hear myself say I am a feminist. I mean, what woman does not believe in the equality between man and women?
Reclaiming the word feminism. Love Caitlin Moran
I still love you #caitlinmoran

Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.- This is what should make every person want to be a feminist- a person who believes in equity for both sexes! You can't be equal if this exists- even walking alone in a big city at night? Not equal.
Women are afraid of meeting a serial killer. Men are afraid of meeting someone fat.
Different perspectives on lack of gender equality. :(

As a women myself that post was in the right place and I bet that there are male jokes too (I'm not trying to offend all feminist only the crazy ones, use logic next time you try to pull something like this and maybe I'll giving you respect crazy feminist)
Facebook will not remove rape culture photo from its site as it doesn't qualify as "hate speech." (Why we need feminism)
Facebook will not remove rape culture photo from its site as it doesn't qualify as "hate speech." This should tell you how much Feminism is needed! Sick
Facebook will not remove rape culture photo from its site as it doesn't qualify as "hate speech." I knew there was a good reason to site when people say, "why aren't you on facebook?"
wait, what? this is TERRIBLE! that post was OBVIOUSLY offensive! No more of this rape culture, PLEASE!
THIS is why we need feminism!! Facebook has proven time & time again that posts like this one perpetuating violence & rape are perfectly acceptable according to their guidelines......but post a picture of a woman breastfeeding feeding, a breast cancer survivor showing their scars etc and THAT is what's considered unworthy of being on Facebook. Seems the people deciding what is deemed acceptable on Facebook have a "sense of humor" when it comes to rape culture & violence against women.....
THIS is why we need feminism!! What the fuck Facebook!!!???
Facebook: We're ok with #Rape and #RapeCulture

Do you see that 42%?!!! Crazy! This is the result of an imperial, patriarchal, misogynist culture. It's not just the men who need to learn about #rapeculture, so do WOMEN. ~ trish *** Pinner: Look at the female responses. Even women are starting to believe this crap. We have got to change the rape culture in society.
This study is a few years old but still upsetting. This is so sad. Look at the female responses. Even women are starting to believe this crap. We have got to change the rape culture in society.
Even amongst high school students the rape culture shows. In all cases there is the beginning of "if a male holds a female down and forces her to have sex..." Then gives various situations. Although men saying its ok is much higher then females, the fact that there is a time that rape is ok proves this.
Feminism is still needed- this attitude cannot change until we eliminate rape culture and misconceptions about consent.
When is rape OK? It sounds like a ludicrous question, but look at the responses from a poll of high school students who were asked "Is it all right if a male holds a female down and forces her to have sex if..."
THIS is rape culture. I would really want to know why there are so many women who said yes on this. This bothers me.
THIS is rape culture. And it is NEVER ok. 54% of men? 42% of women? They think it's ok. No, it's not.
And they say there is no war on women...This is rape culture. The most worrying one is the first one. 39% of the men polled thought if they spent a lot of money on a women that is was okay to force her to have sex? Clearly these people think of women as objects that can be bought or sold. And 39%? That number is way too high!
this is why I'm a feminist
Amy Poehler on Women Who Renounce Feminisim.
Quotes, Renounce Feminism, Amy Poehler, Feminist, Gender Equality, Women, Social Justice
I used to renounce feminism because I was confused as to what it meant. We have to teach our children that feminism is NOT a bad word or a bad thing. You shouldn't have to say "don't treat women that way because she is someone's mother/daughter/sister." No. Don't treat women that way because she is a PERSON just like you are.
We owe so much to the women who fought so hard for the rights we take for granted now. It is bad that men attack feminists but it is far worse when women do so. Amy Poehler
Amy Poehler on women who renounce feminism "That's like someone being like, 'I don't really believe in cars, but I drive one every day and I love that it gets me places and makes life so much easier and faster and I don't know what I would do without it.'"
Feminism isn't about hating men. It's about equality...that is all. If you renounce feminism, you are also renouncing gender equality.
Amy Poehler | SERIOUSLY! If you believe in equality for women, than you are a feminist. Regardless of gender!
Amy Poehler on women who renounce feminism. ~ Women who renounce feminism simply don't know what it means; they have bought into the negative and misleading spin the right wing has tried to put on feminism.
We owe so much to the women who fought so hard for the rights we take for granted now. #amypoehler

I don't believe that all men are rapists, but in reading this I realized bit of truth. I don't make direct eye contact with men when I'm walking by myself. I do wear headphones in an attempt to deter men from talking to me which works on occasion. There is quite a bit of truth in this and it's terrifying and sad.
Even in the face if men sympathetic to their plight, the rabid feminists is never appeased, instead preferring to chastise rather than make peace.
