I am sick to death of these ridiculous posts running loose in this site with a picture of some idiot either blowing up a condom with water or putting a condom on a hand or a foot and then adding the text “if it fits this limb or stretches this wide it can fit him and he’s just trying to take advantage of you.”
First of all! Condoms all come in different sizes, much like clothing. If you’re a size 20 and you put on pants that are size 14 IT IS NOT GOING TO FIT and if it does fit I’m willing to bet anything you feel unbelievably uncomfortable.
Ladies, that is as close of an example as I can give so you have an idea of what wearing a condom that doesn’t fit feels like.
A condom that doesn’t fit has a high percentage of breaking, not to mention that your partner will have a hell of a bad time performing due to discomfort and worry over the condom breaking. There is no greater panic than finding out the condom broke while still inside.
How does it break? The friction between flesh and latex. The fact that the latex is being stretched beyond its capacity and is under the stress of friction for more than 25 minutes are all a condom needs to break.
Second of all, those posts I am referring to are spreading horrible rumors. Just because they stretch it doesn’t mean they’ll work. Condoms aren’t delicate but they aren’t made of unbreakable material. They are meant to fit human penises. Not your fucking hand, not your fucking foot and they sure as hell are not meant to be filled with water.
The images above were taken after I tried putting a condom that doesn’t fit my boyfriend on my hand. Obviously that damn thing broke.
Never ever spread ridiculous rumors like those. It doesn’t make you funny, or edgy, and it sure as hell won’t make you popular. It just makes you a complete and total dumbass.
Here are a few links to several sites with actual information about condoms:
WORD OF CAUTION:
You should always use condoms when having sex and just because that condom doesn’t fit it doesn’t mean you should go on ahead and have unprotected sex. If it doesn’t fit, leave it for another time when both of you are prepared and willing. Find a condom that fits and use it correctly. Find a reputable site with the information you need or talk to your doctor or healthcare provider or ask a sex ed teacher but for goodness’ sake do not buy into those ridiculous posts.
And as for the people making those posts we need you to stop spreading such bullshit and stop shaming people IMMEDIATELY!
thank you so much for this post this is a good post
It’s that simple. No ifs, no buts, no maybes. This is the only way to stop this from happening. Change begins with you. And ending cruelty towards animals begins at your plate.
And what of animals that are humanely raised?
This site, man.
Are people really this fucking dumb? I see this nonsense daily, and it happens with more regularity as the days progress. I’m sick of people feeling oppressed and then believing that it’s okay to fight that with their own prejudices.
Sick of all these fucking labels that do nothing but divide people even further. You aren’t some social crusader. You’re part of the problem.
And the sad thing is that you think you’re part of the solution.
MOTHERFUCKERS COULDN’T GET ON WONDER WOMEN’S LEVEL
Girls pose by a jail that recalls the witch trials of 1692 in Salem, Massachusetts. Photo taken in 1945.
I recently learned that the water in Salem was contaminated with the fungus from which LSD is derived and a legitimate theory for the whole thing is that everyone in the town was tripping balls
This might be the greatest thing ive ever seen on the internet
We did a whole massive thing on this in history. I believe the fungus in question is called Ergot and it’s terrifying. It makes your muscles spasm so when they had seizures that was the reason, not because they were possessed. One woman had to be strapped to her bed, she was seizing so bad. And, like ‘theybuildbuildings’ said, it had the same effects as LSD; as soon as you touch it, let alone consume it, it messes with your entire system. The worst thing is, you practically always had a bad trip. Many complained about bugs crawling under their skin or monsters emerging from the shadows to scratch and bite at them until they were screaming. It was a horrendous thing and the worst part is, Ergot is still around. It grows on crops and, if your wheat isn’t properly treated, it can be eaten and you’ll most likely experience the same as the women of Salem.
god i love history
- Ergotism was well known by the time of the trials, the symptoms probably would have been identified. It was considered a terrifying disease for over a thousand years, known as “holy fire” or “St. Andrew’s Fire”. The most telling sign of ergotism, gangrene, wasn’t even present. It is uncommon for ergotism to be marked solely by convulsions.
- Ergotism didn’t poison the water supply. If it had been a threat to the town it would have been through consumption of rye.
- You’re underestimating the importance of William Griggs, the town doctor who diagnosed the so-called witchcraft. It wasn’t until after he diagnosed Betty that the accusations and claims from the girls started.
- The girls were described as “hale and hearthy” outside of court. Ergotism wasn’t called “the holy fire” because it was mild. It was awful, with rates of fatality between 10-40%. Little was mentioned of vomiting, gastrointestinal issues, skin color change, chills, headaches…. The basic symptoms.
To disregard the unbelievable affect of class and gender on the Puritans is shocking. A wild fungus may seem more interesting, but it disregards prejudice, religion bases psychosis, misogyny, and hate for outsiders that permeated Salem.
Everyone accused was a social pariah. The only exceptions to this are the people who questioned the trials. This is not by accident. Sarah Good was a beggar, Giles Corey was generally distrusted and had previously been accused of murder, Tituba was a black woman who spoke of omens and evil, Martha Carrier had been accused of witchcraft only two years prior and had inherited wealth despite patriarchal norms, Sarah Osbourne was challenging property laws and social norms, Margaret Scott was a poor widow who had been disliked for as long as 20 years, and so on and so on. They struck out against people their families were suspicious of.
These little girls were under tremendous stress. They could celebrate no holidays, express no strong emotions, no dancing or music, no toys, suffered rampant abuse espoused as discipline, and lived under the constant overwhelming fear of Hell. The older generation at that time was bemoaning the youths’ lack of piety and dedication to Christ. In other words, the girls were miserable and well aware that according to their parents only Hell awaited their misbehavior. They were trying to survive in an adult world not meant, or willing to, support the needs of children. To display anger, fear, or sorrow was a personal weakness. But to do so when coerced by the devil was perfectly acceptable. So they acted out, became hysterical. And claimed the devil was behind it all.
That may not be as exciting as the, “but they ate this spore, right? and it was like a bad trip on LSD!” but it’s almost certainly correct.

So while the gap exists (more like lifetime earning gap), is it because you are oppressed for being women by this mysterious patriarchy who gave you everything you need and use to live and enjoy, or are most women either lazy or just dont care about money the way men do?

Female U.S. corporate directors out-earn men: study
Female CEOs outearned men in 2009.
Women between ages 21 and 30 working full-time made 117% of men’s wages.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, single women between 22 and 30 years old earn an average of $27,000 a year. That’s 8% more than comparable men.

The 15 Jobs Where Women Earn More Than Men
women aged between 22 and 29 earn over £10 per hour on average, compared to men their same age who earn just under this amount.
Young women now earn more than men in UK
The only chairwoman in the FTSE 100 index of biggest British companies, when asked about government efforts to force companies to make at least 25% of board member to be female said: “there’s no real evidence to suggest women being on a board makes the companies any better – what we’re doing here is forcing an experiment.”
This was further supported in the book “Why Men Earn More” by Warren Farrell, Ph.D., examined 25 career/life choices men and women make (hours, commute times, etc.) that lead to men earning more and women having more balanced lives, and that showed how men in surveys prioritize money while women prioritize flexibility, shorter hours, shorter commutes, less physical risk and other factors conducive to their choice to be primary parents, an option men still largely don’t have. That is why never-married childless women outearn their male counterparts, and female corporate directors now outearn their male counterparts.
Farrell also lists dozens of careers, including fields of science, where women outearn men. Women simply have more options than men to be primary parents, and many of them exercise that option rather than work long, stressful hours. That is why 57% of female graduates of Stanford and Harvard left the workforce within 15 years of entry into the workforce.
This is an option few men have (try being a single male and telling women on the first date that you want to stay home).
Blaming men for women’s choices is unfair. In fact research shows most men have no problem with their wives outearning them.
Research also shows most working dads would quit or take a pay cut to spend more time with kids if their spouses could support the family.
Research also shows that parents share workloads more when mothers allow men to be primary parents.

There is also the myth that women are kept out of certain more lucrative fields by sexism. The truth is that women stay away from math out of their own free choice

Anus status [#REKT]
Hetero man: I would feel uncomfortable getting changed in a room with a gay man. I would rather not have to share a room with a gay man. I wouldn’t feel safe drunk and alone at a gay man’s house after dark.
Society: Homophobe! Don’t assume that he’ll be attracted to you just because he likes men, that’s pretty vain. Even if he did find you attractive, furthermore, it’s wrong to assume all gay men are sexual predators who will act on their desire against your will.
Hetero woman: I would feel uncomfortable getting changed in a room with a straight man. I would rather not have to share a room with a straight man. I wouldn’t feel safe drunk and alone at a straight man’s house after dark.
Society: Fair enough. If he likes women he’ll probably want to bang you, and will try to do so whether you want it or not. That’s just what straight men are like.
That’s weird. I’ve never heard someone say, “If he likes women he’ll probably want to bang you.” I’ve heard plenty of people say, “Women are at a higher risk of rape than men, and are usually raped by men. Women also often get raped by people they know and are held responsible for their own rape if they are drunk. Given all of these studied facts, I would not ever want to be drunk and alone with a man.” And that sounds pretty reasonable to me…
actually it doesnt since actual facts prove women are more likely to rape, and usually will rape other women more than men. so you probably should not get drunk with women at all since society doesnt think women can be rapists
Women are more likely to rape? Really? I’m going to need a source to back up that claim because I’ve been looking for something to prove that and have not found anything. Try this study instead. The information about who the perpetrators are is on page 24.
you take THAT study that says women are rapists in 40% of cases and you look at this study that shows 60% of rape accusations against men are false
My study in no way shows that women are rapists 40% of the time. It shows that when women are raped, men are the rapists 98% of the time. When men are raped, men are the rapists 93% of the time. Where is the 40% of the time that women are rapists? Because I’m seeing that women are rapists less than 5% of the time.
As for your other study, many people who recant their accusation aren’t doing so because the allegation is false. They’re doing it because they are pressured by police and intimidated into recanting. FBI statistics show that 8% of rape accusations are unfounded. This does not mean false. It could mean the victim recanted, there wasn’t enough evidence, or something else went wrong that involved the case never going to trial. So less than 8% of rape accusations are false. Your study was based off a small sample of a very specific population. The FBI statistics are from police reports across the nation and is a more representative study, so it has a more accurate number. And your study uses other questionable methods. For instance, they created a profile of the women who recanted and used that profile to rule other allegations false with no other evidence, which is just in itself a really strange way to conduct a study. The second study they reference is based on the number of rape allegations that the victim later recanted, which as I’ve already said is not at all an accurate way to measure false allegations, and their sample was ridiculously small. The third study also has a tiny sample of a very specific population, which of course questions the integrity of the study at all. And the last one assumes that any rape case where the primary suspect is found innocent means the rape itself was fabricated. That doesn’t even make any sense.
Of course if you only define rape as penetration, of course there aren’t going to be any female rapists.
point of advice about women if you are so sooo so terrifed of being slapped with a false accusation?
do you ever think about WHY a woman would falsely accuse a guy? Motive?

Your daily reminder that Feminism is rife with bullshit, especially 3rd wave.
The top one is the first SRS story I ever had the displeasure of reading. I remember before it got deleted because it got attention from the front page and people were questioning her logic. (that’s not the srs way)
So Denmark tries to encourage the idea that guys can like girly stuff, and so they’re turning guys into chicks? Pls, egalitarianism is equality. Why do you agree with half this picture?
I think you confused Denmark and Sweden. It says it was ran in “Denmark and the rest of the world" and it was talking about Sweden’s silly feminist laws.
Firstly, making it illegal for men to take a piss while standing is an infringement of basic human rights. How is that not obvious? Government controlling how people pee is like controlling how people are allowed to eat or sleep.
unrelated note; how would they even enforce such a thing? Everything about it is ridiculous.
Secondly, I am all for boys playing with dolls and girls playing with trucks if they wanted to.
I merely reblogged for the first picture because it was relevant to a mundane story that I posted.
