And so I struck a match with feeling...

Fear my feminist rage.

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.

The more time I have to think about it the more I appreciate what Agents of SHIELD did with Ward. I mean really, really appreciate.

They waited until episode 17 - three-quarters of the way through the whole fucking show, they waited until the first season was almost over, and then they went:

"Hey. Hey, you know this stupid sexist loner with a heart of gold shtick? The one you’ve been putting up with as an unfortunate inevitability? The one you’ve resigned yourself to watching spend the rest of the series learn to be less awful? J/K TURNS OUT THAT’S JUST WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE WHEN AN EVIL PIECE OF SHIT TRIES TO PRETEND HE’S A GOOD PERSON"

and then when he tried to pull the “no guys but I don’t really believe this shit” no one bought it because it turns out it doesn’t actually make it better if you only sided with and worked for Nazis for the sweet loot.

AND THEN they replaced him with Trip, who is almost Coulson-esque in his friendly competence.He is just. So great. So, so great in every way that Ward was terrible pre-reveal.

Do you have any idea how happy I would be if every action show did this. Every action movie. Three-quarters of the way through they just suddenly do a heel-turn to show that Bruce Willis is an asshole and the actual hero is Will Smith. Channing Tatum was evil all along, Jason Momoa is going to save the day now.

I hope the writers had that planned from the beginning. I hope they looked at all the critiques of all the characterization that people assumed was accidental, and I hope they cackled in anticipation of what was to come.

sitcomofmylife asked: I didn't know you could be allergic to caffeine! Is it a difficult allergen to avoid? It seems like its in a lot of things.

It’s not as bad as it could be, I guess?  It’s less of an allergy and more of an extremely low threshold for caffeine toxicity.  I’m not entirely sure what the difference is.

But essentially, I can eat chocolate and have decaf coffee because they have such low levels of caffeine. But if I have decaf coffee every day for a week, I’m going to have a reaction.  Luckily the breathing issues are more of a full-caff cup of coffee every day for three days or so kind of issue. Or an “I just drank half a cup of Dunkin’ Donuts hot chocolate” kind of issue.  I don’t know why their hot chocolate makes my throat tight, but it is a great sadness.

The real issue is that I became allergic when I was twenty two and heavily addicted to caffeine, so I had to go through caffeine-withdrawals and the allergic reactions all at the same time. During my first week of work at my first grown-up job.

But basically if I don’t drink caffeinated coffee, tea, or sodas and avoid eating too much dark chocolate in a short period of time, I’m okay.

I’m sure this is more information than you wanted.  Sorry.

Thanks for asking! I was so excited to get a message.

destroythepast asked: Frankly, I'm not 100% convinced about the diabetes thing. Diabetes, at least type 1--the type you claim to have--isn't "an infection of the pancreas", it's an autoimmune issue, which I'd assume someone with the disease would actually know. And while insulin IS expensive, your claims about its actual price are patently false--a cursory Google search reveals that while Novolog is hideously overpriced, it's not "over 450 dollars". So yeah, I'm inclined to believe this is all a scam.

yeah well lemme stop you there, my research has turned up that insulin is expensive as shit, my insurance was paying over $1,000 a month on it, and i was going based on goodrx; ive been told there’s cheaper alternatives, yeah, but you believing that i don’t have diabetes ???? like sry, i fucked up, i didn’t say it right, ok. but look:

even distraught over my baby kitty dying, i’m still fucking diabetic, the money i make is going towards insulin/insurance, and you’re still a fucking asshole for accusing me during this time and you can go fuck yourself.

Okay, but if there’s cheaper alternatives, why the fuck aren’t you using those, assuming they’re essentially the same thing? If there are cheaper alternatives and you don’t have a bad reaction towards them or what have you, there is literally no fucking reason for you to beg for such a huge amount of money.

Plus it doesn’t change the fact that you don’t understand how a disease you say you have even works. I find it incredibly hard to believe that you’ve been living with a disease like diabetes for—if my math is correct—about six years without anyone (such as, you know, a doctor) explaining what it actually is.

And you say that the money you make is going towards insulin and insurance, yet you also post about other things you purchase, apparently using that money. There’s nothing wrong with indulging yourself, but don’t outright lie about it.

Finally, mentioning your dead cat in the middle of something totally fucking unrelated to make me feel bad? Wow, that’s not manipulative at ALL!

You can go fuck yourself too. You seem incredibly manipulative and self-centered, and I sincerely hope I never encounter another terrible post of yours on my dash.

Diabetes can be due to the pancreas not producing enough insulin, it was barely a miswording on kits part.  http://www.diabetes.co.uk/body/pancreas-and-diabetes.html  What the fuck more does kit have to do to prove this to you, how do you think kit got pictures of kits medicine, and even if kit didn’t post pictures of kits medicine why the fuck are you so eager to question someone’s illness.  Kit shouldn’t have to prove kits illness to you.  You know nothing about why the alternatives arent feasible to kit.

Leave kit alone you piece of shit.

Also the different types of insulin work differently. (wow, right?)

I’m a type one diabetic who uses novolog in an insulin pump. my insurance tried to force me to use humalog, because it’s cheaper.  Why is that such a big fucking deal, you ask? Because for some people, myself included, humalog crystalizes in the skin, blocking up the tube for my pump site. You don’t know that OP can use any type of insulin, cheap or otherwise.

Also, I’ve had diabetes for fourteen years, and even though I try really hard not to have ketones in my urine, I still have no fucking clue what a ketone is.  For reals.  And no one really knows why type one diabetes occurs, so people should step off. Having a disease does not automatically make one an expert.
