Do what moves you. Say what you feel. Don't be afraid to be who you are based on some notion of what is acceptable behavior and what's not.

Author John Scalzi was on a roll this morning (currently 7:14 AM, 26 Sept. 2014) with a tweet he found from some guy sending out an “ultimatum” to women to “make a choice” between feminism and, well, men like him. So Scalzi launched into a truly magnificent set of scorchers, which I’m posting here for the delectation of people everywhere.

Also: I would like to thank that guy for setting the ultimatum. It makes finding a boyfriend so much easier when the undesirable ones wear a placard identifying themselves.

DAMN SON

There is no problem that sass cannot solve

My favorite response is, in fact, not included here, though Scalzi retweeted it…it was a link to Tom Hiddleston tweeting support for Emma Watson.

LADIES.

"being a feminist is so unattractive." "being a feminist has made you so bitchy." "being a feminist makes men think you’re weird." "being a feminist  doesn’t need to be talked about at a bar, c’mon.
SHUT THE FUCK UP and THANK YOU! LEAVE ME ALONE!

An activist from the International Solidarity Movement blocks IDF soldiers from shooting at protesting Palestinians in Gaza, saying “You’re shooting at kids, don’t you understand that? Just pull back!“[video]

Guys. This is a woman grappling with an armed soldier wearing nothing but a jacket.
I think we need to know her name.

Diana Prince 

this is why I wanted to be a war journalist. how powerful is this segment. why did it not make it on the news?

Because Western/US media supports Israel’s war crimes, just as the US funds and arms Israel’s ethnocidal regime.

In case anyone else is like me and didn’t get the Diana Prince joke at first and was super confused (Wonder Woman) and is curious to know who she is, she appears to be Huwaida Arraf (first link to her Twitter, second to her Wikipedia page).

thank you for the links and correct info, leggy
