“There should be a meme…” just surpassed “There should be a law…” in my hierarchy of stupid things to say.

The poster features the silver adornment worn by a woman in Setu folk costume – a large conical brooch, surrounded by chains of silver coins and pieces. Such ornamental abundance is unique in Estonia.
The Setu people are a small ethnic minority living in South-East Estonia. For centuries, they have lived between two worlds with Orthodox Russia in the east and formerly Catholic, but now Lutheran, Estonia in the west. The language, customs and folk costumes of the Setu people have influences from both sides. Above all, however, they have kept their own regional distinctiveness. The Setu language is one of many South-Estonian dialects and is not usually understood by people from North-Estonia. The Setu folk costumes bear both Russian and ‘Finno-Ugric’ elements (the term ‘Finno-Ugric’ describes the Estonian, Finnish and Hungarian languages and the cultures in which they have been spoken). Setu culture was in decline in the 1980s and symbolised a potentially dark future for Estonians and Estonian culture under Soviet rule.
This Estonian pro-democracy poster dates from 1989.
Not to be like a total hipster but unless you’re new here, you gotta admit that being “anti-SJW” became cool/popular/edgy at some point. And now you have a near-equal amount of self-righteous fucking morons and sheepy/parroty little shits on this side of the debates.
It has been said that women tend to see themselves through misogynists’ eyes. I would add they see themselves through catcallers’ eyes. The things we hear from catcallers comprise a radically unstable set of messages. What starts out “oi sexy” can modulate within seconds to “frigid bitch”, simply because you didn’t leap in a state of sexual paroxysms into the back of his white van. Wolf-whistles can become dog-barks. “You’re fucking gorgeous, you,” can become “fucking ugly cow”. There are similar oscillations in a woman’s mind when she’s learnt to see her worth as skin-deep.
Most people are unaware that symptoms of heart attacks in females are different than those of males. Please signal boost. (Based on this post, information from WebMD.)
This is so important. A woman i care very much about didn’t go to hospital for her first heart attack - and was even fobbed off by her GP. It wasn’t till she had a second heart attack (with symptoms more in the classic male pattern of chest pains) a day or so later that she went to A&E. She’s fine now, but is very lucky that she’s alive and her heart isn’t permanently damaged.
(And for all the what-about-the-males people claiming this is ‘cissexist’, go fuck yourselves)
I thought you were kidding, but they really are. Christ almighty.
Who cares about women having heart attacks? What about men’s egos?
Trans*women**’s bodies work totally different thant hose of men!! They must be included!! What about people who don’t identify as male or female? Their bodies adapt to the situation and will have vastly different symptoms!
Ok, uhm, I’m calling them insane right now. Totally nuts.
*including cross-dressers, of course, and men who wear pink
**not actual women
Anyone remember when trans people were really invested in divorcing gender from sex and understood biology? I miss those days.
Every time your breath can be felt on someone else’s neck a puppy shoots itself. Don’t breathe on people’s necks. Think of the puppies.
For the first eleven words I thought this was gonna be a sexy post.

Must be able to touch my arm occasionally and convincingly tell me I’m not a horrible shit troll.
uncdan replied to your post: Just showing some support for you standing up against “thisiswhiteculture”. I’ve read the blog once and it was one of the most stupid things I’ve ever encountered. Obviously these people have absolutely no knowledge of history (besides slavery) or real “white” culture and their ignorance is obviously showing. Trying to talk to them probably won’t help, because they’re full of shit, but I’m glad to see people calling them out on what they do, because it is not okay and extremely offensive.Seriously, only Americans view “white culture” as this monolithic antagonistic force.
I think it’s because that’s sort of the way things are in the US, so i guess i understand part of their logic. But i think the fact that they persistently refuse to accept that things work differently outside of their own society is definitely a sign of American entitlement and exceptionalism.

Must be irritable and cantankerous. Often unpleasant.
If you are generally uncomfortable in the company of other people this is a plus.
