gender is not an aesthetic or an abstract concept or a set of cool meaningless post-modern labels, it is the hierarchy through which sex-based oppression is enforced and legitimized

Another structural factor implicated in the rise of human trafficking is restrictive immigration policies. It is normal in many countries to consider trafficked women as migration criminals—i.e., as illegal migrants who should be deported from a country when police raids are conducted on brothels or clubs. Victims of trafficking are often treated as “undesirable and criminal aliens” in countries to which they are trafficked. This perspective is often reflected in national legislation in destination countries that makes immigration more restrictive, thus obstructing the flow of migrants seeking to enter countries legitimately.

Ironically, these restrictive immigration policies tighten up border controls that often are used to harass vulnerable migrants but have little effect on the traffickers. What we are seeing in many industrialized countries, particularly in “Fortress Europe,” is a mentality promoting globalization of capital, but not globalization of humane and regular migration. Countries want cheap labor, and sex industries want a new and fresh supply of exotic women for prostitution, but in most parts of the world, the possibilities for legal migration have decreased substantially. As immigration becomes more restrictive and discriminatory, and ineffective border controls are utilized in receiving countries, traffickers become the major international players who facilitate international migration because the legitimate channels are so restrictive.

why the fuck does kimberly get less coffee
get rid of jeffrey and keep his mug

This is the perfect visual metaphor for heterosexuality.

I really can’t get over what a good metaphor this is.

they could’ve just made them square but that’d probably be too gay 

but then how would the dude be in the lady’s space, expropriating her value? D:

Guys, this is obviously literally meant as a metaphor for the depressingly common dynamics of most heterosexual relationships, and indeed of society in general.

the ‘hers’ cup only appears to have a normal shape when paired with the ‘his’ cup.  on its own, the cup would appear to be missing something.  why is heterosexuality so terrible?

This has to literally be a metaphor for heterosexual relationships. There is no way someone made such a perfect representation by accident.

my feminism stands in full support of “ugly” women both as conventional beauty standards prove themselves to be racist, fatphobic, time-consuming, and all around bullshitty; and insofar as women do not have to be visually appealing in order to have worth as people

I actually refuse to believe that there is anyone genuinely arguing that “fuck them skinny bitches”  is a problematic, body-shaming, anti-feminist statement.  

I mean, I don’t even care to engage in the ~politics~ of ~bodies~.  I just don’t want to live in a world where anyone is that joyless.
