If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do?
Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.
Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?
On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.
If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th
Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown
wHY DOES THIS HAVE SO FEW NOTES
I’m sure you’ve all seen what’s up with Tumblr, but this is REALLY serious, guys.
4 real tho
This is important. Please take part in it. Please.
Sites like tumblr, where people can freely discuss societal and political issues would suffer tremendously. I swear sending a message to FCC is so important for everyone in the United States, where the Internet is the only true outlet for this kind of stuff.
Remember that time I said women shouldn’t have equal rights and responsibilities?
No, really, please go find it.
I’m sure you have evidence to back up your claim, right?
A TRUE FEMINIST™ would never, EVER put words in someone else’s mouth!
And good for you for not dumping on skinny girls, clearly, not all body positivists are like that, right?
I told this fucking shitlord to educate himself as to what feminism means and he decided to flaunt his ciswhitemaledudebrowealthy privilege by just whipping out his phallic smart phone and looking it up, how typical is that?
he keeps trying ask me all these stupid questions like he thinks it’s my job to educate him. he’s all like “If you’re an advocate wouldn’t you be happy to help me learn more?”and i’m like “No, don’t tell me how to advocate.” and he looked at me like he was confused.
update: I reported him for rape

It’s not like feminists are hypocrites or anything.
They definitely don’t:
ACTIVELY SHUT DOWN dissenting opinions.
Use FALSE FLAG tactics to garner sympathy
TRIVIALIZE male DV surviviors
Promote a long-debunked WAGE GAP MYTH to continuously promote their stupid political agenda.
PROMOTE MAN HATERS as leaders
TRIVIALIZE RAPE but still insist it can’t happen to men.
PROMOTE TELLING EVERYONE that we should just put up with
someone’s little girls’ insufferable bullshit instead of calling them out on their nonsense.
EDIT: NEVER REFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE PROBLEMS IN THEIR FUCKING MOVEMENT and always cry “Not all feminists are like that!!!!!” You can set your clock by it.
Feminists want benefits only for women.
They don’t care about men, except when those men can be used as a means to promote their political agenda.
Hell, feminists don’t even care about women unless the woman can be a martyr to the cause or held up as a boogeywoman of “internalized misogyny”
Feminists refuse to police their movement, have allowed toxic members to become figureheads, and now must deal with the consequences.
You, my dear, need to learn what feminism is all about.
This .gif perfectly summarizes every Fat Acceptance/Thin Privilege post.
Brooks no argument.
Watched the latest vid, couldn’t believe all the misogyny and body shaming in the comments coming from the Patriarch…. wait
Well, you see….
Internalized misogyny is….
That’s just out of context…..
Link for the full album here, tumblr seems to be not liking direct image codes.
PS: I told you all that Lorde would become irrelevant months ago.
