When people give me nicknames they always either go with “Tea” or “Risty”. The first one isn’t even pronounced like that and the second one is slang for handjob?

I don’t understand why people don’t call me Ari like it’s literally the most obvious+the cutest variation of my name??

In the early 1990s, Alberto Fujimori won Peru’s presidency, and quickly imposed harsh shock therapy measures that impoverished millions. Peru’s impoverished masses weren’t responding to shock therapy the way Fujimori and the neoliberal consensus thought they should. So Fujimori — currently in prison for crimes against humanity — decided the only way to cut poverty among the indigenous population was to cut the number of poor indigenous people. Literally.

Between 1996-98, the Fujimori regime forcibly mass-sterilized some 300,000 women, mostly indigenous peoples in the Andes and Amazon regions. Fujimori’s mass forced-sterilization program is one of only two such national programs known since the end of World War Two. And yes, it received enthusiastic funding from USAID, which donated $35 million to the program.

IT’S A METAPHOR 

IT’S A METAPHOR

Who knew the sight of women eating could cause so much controversy? This week the London-based media has been debating a Facebook group showing just that. With over 21,000 members, the Women Who Eat on Tubes group features candid shots of women using a trip on London’s subway system to catch up with a meal. As the group grew, comments on its pages became more overt in their latent misogyny, as if there was something inherently grotesque in a woman having an appetite and being in need of some food. To make the intrusions greater, the photos’ captions also identified when and on which tube line they were taken, and what the woman was eating, as this journalist who featured on the site learned.
Of course, the group is just one of various candid photo sites currently doing the rounds. It’s not entirely dissimilar to the romanticized images of young women of Buenos Aires Chicas Bondi or its male London equivalent, the tumblr and Twitter account Tubecrush. It also has some kinship with public behavior shaming sites like Singapore’s STOMP – though that wouldn’t exonerate it from charges of creepy intrusion – even though eating on London’s Tube is neither uncommon nor against any particular rule.

Yeah, the site’s owner claims to be celebrating women, but captions a photo of three women eating as “Three Little Pigs”.
Here’s my suggestion for acting like a decent human being when it comes to taking photos of a stranger: Are you comfortable asking them permission to post the photo online? No? THEN DON’T TAKE THE GODDAMN PICTURE AND POST IT, YOU DOUCHECANOE.

This is terrifying. This isn’t just about taking photos of ‘a’ stranger. This is a group culture which aims to punish women for eating.

why did you tag "menstruation cw"?
Anonymous

I tag content warnings for menstruation for trans/non binary people who can be triggered by it. For example: a trans man might find menstruation triggering because when they menstruate it is a security threat and it could ‘out’ them as trans. 

It is not for men who are grossed out by menstruation. If you’re a cis man who blacklists menstruation bc it puts you off, you need to get off the internet bc little babies like you shouldn’t have a tumblr.
