STFU Etiquette Blogs

Fuck you.
[This image, from rulesforthesouthernlady, originally read: “During ‘red cup season’ you have to go to Starbucks every single chance you get. It makes you happier. No matter what” has been modified to read “In any season, go where you want. Find happiness where you can.”]
I don’t even know what “red cup season” is.
Note: I think they may be referring to the time of year when Starbucks switches to their red Christmas/holiday themed cups.

Thanks for the response guys. I really appreciate you clearing it up for me and anyone else that might have been confused.

Note: I googled koozie as I had no fucking clue to what a koozie was and this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beer_koozie) is the first thing that popped up. I have no idea if this was what the person who runs rulesforthesouthernlady meant when they originally wrote the rule.

“Think before you Pink.”
I was hoping this image would come up on my dash and I could reblog it from someone with more expertise, but I haven’t seen it outside of facebook yet.
Some things to keep in mind:
Make awareness about the individual and their struggles with cancer, NOT about “boobies” and “saving breasts.”   Many breast cancer survivors DO lose their breasts and positing awareness as a movement to “save their breasts” diminishes our need to focus on supporting the people.   Whether or not they chose/need to undergo a mastectomy is not really your business or concern.
“Saying that we should work to cure this disease because it threatens breasts is really upsetting. For starters, it suggests that women are worth saving because they’re attached to breasts, rather than the other way around. But worse, it tells any woman who’s had a life-saving mastectomy that she’s given up the thing that made people care about her survival. What a punch in the stomach.”  -Randal Munroe, of XKCD
Think twice about supporting companies that seem more concerned about using Breast Cancer Awareness and its ever-increasing popularity to sell their product, rather than concerned about actually supporting and assisting those struggling/those who will battle with breast cancer/with finding a cure
For alternative organizations to support, Kate Madonna Hindes recommends Breast Cancer Action. “They are INCREDIBLE and do work that focuses ALL on prevention.”

Thank you to all who came to the debut of CLITERACY last night. It was seriously amazing to see the responses. Crowds around the wall laughing, pointing to laws, calling friends to look, camera phones out, one friend got goosebumps, and another cried. It was really something. Holy f****ng CLIT!

Cliteracy needs to be taught in all schools.

this looks awesome

this is not a joke this is reality

Just last night at the store I saw a coke can costume for a guy, which was pretty much just giant fabric coke can with holes for a guys arms, legs, and head.
Right next to it was the girl version, which was a sexy sprite dress. It really is this fucking blatant

this is why i can’t buy costumes anymore

I know!  By now, it’s just like “Let’s see…slutty cat, slutty nurse, slutty nun, slutty librarian, slutty witch, slutty maid, oh look!  Conservative prostitute!

So fucking frustrating. And putting one together yourself that’s remotely decent can be so expensive.

I was the victim of an NYC abortion scam.

Isn’t it bad enough that we have assholes standing on the sidewalks outside, screaming us into guilt? Isn’t it bad enough that forever after, we will only hear about what sluts we are? Isn’t it bad enough the guilt that ignorant people heap upon us, sometimes unknowingly, but mostly on purpose?

Isn’t it enough that we are trying to take responsibility for our lives, but all anyone can focus on is that stupid 1,0000th of an ounce embryo?

No.

Now they have to scam us out of money.

In a RAGE right now.

This is horrifying. It seems so strange that it really is necessary to look up reviews of abortion clinics on Yelp or on other websites to make sure that they’re okay, but I’m so glad I read this. Now I know.

A heads up for any followers that live in NYC or are at any point planning to go to NYC for an abortion. This is so beyond infuriating, and I wish there were more avenues for this person and the other victims of this clinic to complain and do something.
