Ellen what the fuck happened in 1998

ellen degeneres came out in 1997

yeah but ellen what happened in 2014

ellen page came out in 2014


There’s just no way this is accurate. For one thing, that’s not how real data looks. For another, the most popular first name for baby girls in the United States, every year from 1996 to 2007, was Emily (Social Security Administration). And don’t even try to tell me you have baby name data from 2014. This website seems reasonably believable; the name Ellen declined pretty rapidly in popularity from 1995 through 1998, and nothing dramatic has happened to it since (it certainly didn’t rise again, as this chart shows). Like, is this meant to say that some of the 1995-8 decline is attributable to Ellen Degeneres, and the fall at the end is a prediction of the effect of Ellen Page? I don’t even know.

An asexual and pansexual become room-mates and have wacky adventures

The show is called ‘All or Nothing’

Plot twist: the asexual is really super outgoing and is a huge flirt while the pansexual is extremely socially awkward and has trouble ordering coffee let alone getting a date.

Feminists who claim prostituted women have ‘choice’ are letting those women down. They may think they are helping them by invoking the ‘choice’ argument. They may have the best of intentions. But tell me, then, why all these feminists are not prostitutes themselves? Why not give up their well-paid jobs and become a well-paid prostitute or a well-paid porn star? Because – obviously – these feminists have some degree of choice, certainly more than the prostituted woman has. They may have had opportunities which the prostituted woman has not had. They would do well to think on that next time they are arguing that the woman who is being used by a man to achieve orgasm has any ‘choice’ in the matter.

Jacqueline Homan, “Prostitution, Pornography and the Illusion of ‘Choice.’” (via womentoadmire)

In that case, prostitution is no different than ANY other service-sector/pink-collar/whatever job performed by someone without much education and that does not pay a good wage, and there is absolutely no reason to single sex workers out for these abolition campaigns.

In fact, many sex workers I’ve met have said that they chose sex work over a minimum-wage job that would’ve been much more degrading, difficult, and low-paid.

also… sex workers’ rights activism is led by sex workers, as it should be. People like Melissa Gira Grant, Janet Mock, Audacia Ray, Kitty Stryker, and Annie Sprinkle are sex workers or former sex workers. The Red Umbrella Project and St. James’ Infirmary are run by sex workers. Sex workers have campaigned under the slogan “nothing about us without us,” originally developed by the disability rights movement, which means that the primary voices speaking about sex workers should be sex workers. 

So the answer to the question of why these feminists don’t become sex workers is “they do.” 

p.s. also this argument is fake consensualism

I wouldn’t necessarily mind people not knowing I’m gay, but I don’t like being thought of as straight — in the same way that I don’t mind people not knowing I’m a writer, but it would be awkward if they assumed I was an extreme skateboarder, because that’s so far removed from the reality of my life. But there is no blank slate where orientation is concerned; we are straight until proven otherwise. And if you’ve never seen how dramatically a conversation can be derailed by a casual admission of homosexuality, let me tell you, it gets awkward.
