"The enemy of feminism isn’t men. It’s patriarchy, and patriarchy is not men. It is a system, and women can support the system of patriarchy just as men can support the fight for gender equality."

People’s Republic of Donetsk: “The city is surrounded: the army sent by the euronazist junta of Kiev has called an ultimatum. It says ‘Everyone not surrendering will be killed.’ Our thoughts go to you all resisting on the barricades against this lie called European democracy.”

"Eastern Ukraine: Ukrainian Army and the National Guard (‪#‎EuroMaidan‬ activists and neo-Nazis) killing unarmed civilians. Western media are silent.”

Welcome friends and enemies. B9 Kingdom has a new store open up at Topatoco, where you can get some excellent art books from excellent artists. Never forget that. Never forget that good art is just a click away. Please consider helping that art out.

Long ago, I was a pharmacy technician when Viagra first came out and I endured a male customer screaming bloody murder at me when I had to tell him that it wasn’t covered by his insurance. (It was pretty standard that insurance companies wouldn’t cover any new medication for up to six months after its initial release.) He was calling me a bitch and laying all this violence on me and I just had to be like, Sorry about your dick, dude, but do I look like the CEO of your insurance company who decided you have to pay $10 to get hard?

It didn’t take long for Viagra, which is solely used to treat limp dick, to be covered, but it was YEARS before my birth control pill, which treats acne and hirsutism and amenorrhea and PCOS and NCAH and endometriosis and on and on, got covered.

$172m on PENIS PUMPS? We spent one hundred and seventy two MILLION dollars to give tiny dicked jerkoffs some hope of maybe not having as tiny of a dick?!

I’m not sure what’s more shocking (a gender double standard isn’t, sadly) that penis pumps cost $360 a piece or that 477,777 wanted one.

I feel like there are probably valid reasons to want penis pumps, because disability is a thing, and we don’t know everyone’s problems. 

Other than that, I agree with the sentiment!
