It’s Mama swan protecting her baby! She doesn’t know the guy is just trying to help.. but then she’s like “Oh.. my bad. Thanks!!”

This is so heartwarming

More like, “My offspring escaped from that large bipedal predator that was attacking it.”

“Nice tits!” one yelled from his scooter, the one with the handlebars almost as tall as his head.

My teeth clenched.

“Nice ass!” his playmate called out.

…I’d never been cat-called by a five year old before; I wasn’t sure how to respond. These were kids I knew, kids I saw daily and talked to sometimes about their games or toys, their classes and sports teams. These kids had sweetly asked me “what are you doing?” every time I was out gardening last summer.

“Hey! Tits! Ass!” Even in their young voices, I could hear a sense of power in these words.

…I thought about the glee I’d heard in their voices. They’d learned something new about how the world works, and they were testing it out. In the voices of these children I sensed a pride in having newly discovered that men were superior to women, and that this was a way in which that superiority is exerted…

When those two little boys yelled body parts toward me that spring day, I was furious, but I wasn’t angry at them. I was angry at a world that teaches them to treat us this way, that teaches them from such a young age. So this is when it starts, I remember thinking to myself. This is the age they learn it. Five years old. Now we know.

being a cishet looks boring why do people do that

Idk maybe bc sexuality/gender isnt based on how cool or interesting an individual wants to look

yeah but why be boring when u can be awesome and not cishet

yeah but why treat lgbt+ identities like some trendy fashion accessory that ppl can just slap on to look cool when u could not act like a complete idiot

AND BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE FUCK YOUR TRENDSEXUALITY

wow The Onion is dropping a lot of truth for a work of satire


nothing about boys having their genitals mutliated routinely in the US of course 

Lets not pretend that a surgery performed in sterile conditions with full anaesthetic and the gamut of modern medical know-how is at all comparable to having your clitoris hacked off by a razor blade or a rusty tin can by someone with no medical training working in assembly line conditions with no hope of sterility.
Let’s also not pretend that the excision of the foreskin of the penis is in any way comparable to Grade IV, or what’s known as “infibulation”, where they hack off EVERYTHING, stitch her up and leave a hole smaller than your index finger for urine and blood to escape, and that her husband is expected to open on his wedding night, either by brute force or with another blade.
None of that, incidentally, is performed under even local anaesthetic.
So no. The mutilation of male neo-nates isn’t good, but it in no way compares. Might as well say that pulling a tooth out at the dentist is the same as getting curbstomped.

So if I can get my daughter’s clitoris hacked off in sterial conditions, with clean tools and modern anesthetic, its ok?
Good, that nasty little thing was ugly.  My daughter would look so much better without it anyway 

A couple problems with your hyperbole, though.
 Firstly, I don’t condone circumcision EITHER, so you’re already starting from an erroneous assumption.  Secondly, your anatomy is wrong. The clitoris has no analogous male organ. The equivalent of the male foreskin is the clitoral hood (which can ALSO be removed or damaged as a lower grade of FGM).  However, the individual I was responding to compared male circumcision to female circumcision. That’s a false analogy because, while your hypothetical hyperbole is nice, it’s not actually the way the world works. There’s no push to “make it sterile”, and even if there WAS, I would advocate against the mutilation as a whole, the same way I advocate against the circumcision of male infants.  It is critical to note, though, that male circumcision, in addition to being vastly safer, doesn’t detrimentally affect the health of an infant. Presumably, when a circumcised man has sex, he doesn’t experience pain at the incision site. It’s unlikely he’ll develop a fistula. It won’t affect his fertility and is unlikely to give him a blood borne (or any other) infection. The motivation is also different. Female genital mutilation exists for one reason only, and that is to control the sexual autonomy of the women subjected to it. That’s the only reason.  Dress it up however you like, but male circumcision, while unethical and of no medical value whatsoever, is in no way as psychologically traumatic, medically invasive or sexually controlling as FGM.  Should it be allowed to lapse into the annals of history? Absolutely, and the sooner the better. But let’s not compare a fifteen minute procedure performed under local anaesthetic on an infant too young to remember it, to being held down by your own loved ones while someone you don’t know spreads your thighs and hacks off a chunk of flesh containing 8000 nerve endings without any anaesthetic when you’re old enough to know exactly how deep a violation that is.  Like I said. Might as well compare cosmetic surgery to a vivisection.
