Surprise! Cliven Bundy, Conservatives' Newest Hero, is a Huge Gigantic Racist

publicshaming:

Have your heard about Cliven Bundy? No? Why he’s only America’s newest patriot! Conservatives, Republicans, Libertarians, and right wingers of all types are going goo-goo over Mr. Bundy and his Bundy Ranch. Let me give you a little summary.

Cliven Bundy, like most good white right wingers, is…

My Dad isn’t a bad person, he’s just… old fashioned.

This is so much the outlook by many men on a woman’s hormonal fluctuation. As if there is no control. No matter what, women cannot have control of their bodies.

Your dad tells the fucking truth. The last thing America needs is a woman in charge.

Sorry ladies, I’m just saying what we’re all thinking. Women are cuntwaffles during their period.

I’m willing to bet that most people who are irritable are so because they’re uncomfortable or in pain - it’s really hard to be level-headed when you’re in gut-tearing amounts of pain.

The hormonal argument is the biggest load of crap - as if males don’t have hormones or don’t have a hormonal cycle. Actually, male hormone cycles are more frequent and less predictable.

I’m not putting this out there to put one sex above the other but rather to point out that “hur hur hormones!!!” is a really ridiculous reason to discredit and entire group of people, especially when we all have hormones and hormonal cycles.

So we shouldn’t allow a woman president because she supposedly loses her shit and becomes hyperaggressive once a month, but we regularly give power to men who lose their shit and become hyperaggressive whenever a woman rejects their advances.

Seems legit.

I’m not trying to be sexist, but let me use this super archaic view on hormones, coupled with sexist slurs meant to oppress women, all in defense of not giving them power

hurr hurr we’re all thinking it tho amirite

EAT. MY. SHIT.

Why can’t there be a male hooter’s equivalent where male servers are shirtless and highly sexualized for their bodies and looks

Male Strip clubs. You’re thinking of male strip clubs.

No. Not a male strip club. A strip club is a strip…

You must have to be a fucking shitty person with no morals or conscious to make threats to someone you don’t know over the phone and cause her to breakdown in tears and trigger her. Suppose you don’t care either. FUCK you, you lowlife!

update: I’m feeling a lot better.  no more tears shed.  It was basically a women that called in (I work at a call center) and I recognized her voice as someone I’ve dealt with before that calls in with the mentality of “I hate the company, and I’m planning to be bitch no matter what you say or do, you stupid person”; in fact the very first time I spoke with her the first words she said to me were, I shit you not,  ”I am a college educated woman and will not be spoken to like I’m an idiot”.  Her words to be this time, after I told her a supervisor was on his way, was “I’m fully prepared to deal with you and your shitty company, the fun is just beginning” or something along those lines.  For those not aware, I had a guy corner me in the orchestra room in middle school and told me if I ever told a teacher again about what him and other people were doing to me, I’d “pay with my life” and I carried that with me through my life, not even telling my parents about that.  When I confided in my now ex-bf about this to explain why I didn’t find a “joke” about threatening someone funny, his reaction was very “eh whatever, deal with it”; kinda explanatory why he is now my ex.  So yeah, dealt with an asshole, had a break down, I’m over it.  Off tomorrow so yeah, yayz!

I don’t understand how book readers are saying this scene was 100% consensual or loving in the books, because it really wasn’t.
Things that point to the scene being rape:
Cersei refuses Jaime initially.
He ignores her and kisses her so she can’t really speak.
She is physically resisting him.
He never heard her.
I repeat: He never heard her. Cersei is protesting verbally, giving Jaime reasons why she does not want to have sex with him at that time in that place and He never heard her.
Does that sound like enthusiastic consent to y’all, cause it sure as hell doesn’t to me.
Not to mention this scene feeds into the whole “Ignore her if she says no because she’ll be totally into it once you slip her the D” bullshit, which, imo at least, is actually sending a more fucked up message than the message sent by depicting the scene as pretty unambiguous rape—at least from the viewer’s perspective.  I’d seriously doubt that Jaime considered it “real” rape, just like many people IRL don’t consider it rape if it’s with someone they’ve previously had consensual sex with.  Not saying it’s right, just saying I don’t think Jaime meant to hurt Cersei, but he did, because their relationship is ultimately destructive and unhealthy and I really don’t know how book readers or show watchers could read it as anything but.

whoa what the fuck I don’t remember this scene. that’s totally fucked.

people kept posting that last excerpt without the other partwhat the fuck people are being rape apologists this is clearly rape or at the very least it started out as rape like this person said and “turned into” her “wanting the D” which is even worse
