"Well it’s an opinion so it can’t be wrong.”

Okay we are not 5 anymore, opinions can be wrong, your parents lied to you, your teachers lied to you. Not every comment you have will be valid, not everything you say needs to be heard. 

And opinions can be and have been wrong. 

But if you wanna hold that idea then it’s my OPINION that you’re a loser my opinion is right and valid, ur a loser now. Suck it loser.

Unnecessary “fillers” in our speech. I’d rather have “like” than up-talking, though (if we had to choose one, that is). Ewwww, up-talking. Then again, a combination of the two would render me homicidal maniac.

Like, did you ever notice? That, like, the speech patterns people, like, think are stupid?  Are, like, commonly associated with, like, women?

And, like, there’s this thing? Where, like, women aren’t supposed to be, like, assertive? So they, like, qualify their speech? Because, like, we’re not supposed to, like, stand by our opinions?

1) humiliate women so they don’t feel qualified to speak authoritatively about anything

2) humiliate women for speaking in such a way that reflects how you treat her

3) laugh, you are superior because you don’t use words like “like.”  It isn’t as if being a huge stupid asshole has ever made you worse than a woman who speaks with verbal tics.  

The nail. It is hit on the head.

Amazing. This is from the “Academy of Linguistic Awareness” and yet they’re using ableist slurs.

Okay. Ignorant ass question. When I see black girls with natural hair, I always tell them I love how their hair. Same as when this gorgeous girl at my school does something new with her hair like braids or something. I mean it genuinely, I think it's super beautiful. But I'm wondering if this Is insulting and creepy???

youngblackandvegan:

It’s only creepy if you touch it our say things like “omg I wish my hair looks like that” or some other exaggerated unnecessary stuff. Do not treat black women and their hair like it’s some thing exotic or like they are animals in a zoo
Say you like their hair and keep it moving. But giving a nice complement is always a good thing
