Am I the only one whose Activity tab has been reporting wrong numbers for a week or more? The numbers do not match the actual likes at all.

I’ve had this too. I mostly noticed it on just one post that had 70+ notes and it’s saying it has, like 32 or something.

on mine the number of notes it reports is only for new notes within the time shown on the graph, not the all-time total. could that be what’s happening for y’all?

No, its all happened in the past couple days. And in top performing post it has the wrong note count, but it’s been right for other parts that for a bunch of notes in the same time.

[Image: The hardest thing to do is to say that I am Bisexual. Lesbian or Straight always seems easier.]

Once upon a time (not too too long ago) it was also considered SO horrifying to admit to being a Lesbian — a word that in popular imagination associated with licentiousness, loose morals, mental illness, suicide, porn, and perversion — that the early Lesbian Pride Group of the 1950’s, the Daughters of Bilitis wrote instead in their mission statement, which was printed on the inside of every cover of their magazine The Ladder until 1970:

1. Education of the variant…to enable her to understand herself and make her adjustment to society…this to be accomplished by establishing…a library…on the sex deviant theme; by sponsoring public discussions…to be conducted by leading members of the legal psychiatric, religious and other professions; by advocating a mode of behavior and dress acceptable to society.
2. Education of the public…leading to an eventual breakdown of erroneous taboos and prejudices…
3. Participation in research projects by duly authorized and responsible psychologists, sociologists, and other such experts directed towards further knowledge of the homosexual.
4. Investigation of the penal code as it pertain to the homosexual, proposal of changes,…and promotion of these changes through the due process of law in the state legislatures.”

New York chapter president Barbara Gittings noted that the word "variant" was used instead of "lesbian" in the mission statement, because "lesbian" was a word that had a very negative meaning in 1956.

It wasn’t until Homosexual (and Bisexual and Trans/Gender Non-Conforming) people finally heeded the call of Harvey Milk to "Come Out" even when difficult and started standing up and correcting the Myths + Stereotypes by publicly self-identify as Lesbian - actually using the Word - and by the example of their own lives show that the meaning the general public understood + universities + learned academics and doctors were teaching as fact, was a complete lie did the word “Lesbian” (and Gay which originally also had a sexual connotation of being a paid hustler and general low-down immoral slut) become the "respectable" words we think of today.

An example that people who shy away from the word Bisexual and try to twist and turn and rename themselves into "something more ‘respectable’ like … for example Lesbian + Gay" would do Very Well to Remember History and emulate what Lesbian Women and Gay Men did.

To quote bi writer Eponymous Fliponymous, The word is not the problem.

You want to say Hi to the cute girl on the subway. How will she react? Fortunately, I can tell you with some certainty, because she’s already sending messages to you. Looking out the window, reading a book, working on a computer, arms folded across chest, body away from you = do not disturb. So, y’know, don’t disturb her. Really. Even to say that you like her hair, shoes, or book. A compliment is not always a reason for women to smile and say thank you. You are a threat, remember? You are Schrödinger’s Rapist. Don’t assume that whatever you have to say will win her over with charm or flattery. Believe what she’s signaling, and back off.

If you speak, and she responds in a monosyllabic way without looking at you, she’s saying, “I don’t want to be rude, but please leave me alone.” You don’t know why. It could be “Please leave me alone because I am trying to memorize Beowulf.” It could be “Please leave me alone because you are a scary, scary man with breath like a water buffalo.” It could be “Please leave me alone because I am planning my assassination of a major geopolitical figure and I will have to kill you if you are able to recognize me and blow my cover.”

On the other hand, if she is turned towards you, making eye contact, and she responds in a friendly and talkative manner when you speak to her, you are getting a green light. You can continue the conversation until you start getting signals to back off.

The fourth point: If you fail to respect what women say, you label yourself a problem.

There’s a man with whom I went out on a single date—afternoon coffee, for one hour by the clock—on July 25th. In the two days after the date, he sent me about fifteen e-mails, scolding me for non-responsiveness. I e-mailed him back, saying, “Look, this is a disproportionate response to a single date. You are making me uncomfortable. Do not contact me again.” It is now October 7th. Does he still e-mail?

Yeah. He does. About every two weeks.

This man scores higher on the threat level scale than Man with the Cockroach Tattoos. (Who, after all, is guilty of nothing more than terrifying bad taste.) You see, Mr. E-mail has made it clear that he ignores what I say when he wants something from me. Now, I don’t know if he is an actual rapist, and I sincerely hope he’s not. But he is certainly Schrödinger’s Rapist, and this particular Schrödinger’s Rapist has a probability ratio greater than one in sixty. Because a man who ignores a woman’s NO in a non-sexual setting is more likely to ignore NO in a sexual setting, as well.

So if you speak to a woman who is otherwise occupied, you’re sending a subtle message. It is that your desire to interact trumps her right to be left alone. If you pursue a conversation when she’s tried to cut it off, you send a message. It is that your desire to speak trumps her right to be left alone. And each of those messages indicates that you believe your desires are a legitimate reason to override her rights.

For women, who are watching you very closely to determine how much of a threat you are, this is an important piece of data.

an excerpt from Phaedra Starling’s “Schrödinger’s Rapist: or a guy’s guide to approaching strange women without being maced” (via lostgrrrls)

HOLY FUCK THE TRUTH.

Can every one of my male followers read this? And please, before you get defensive (“I would never rape anyone!”) keep in mind, women being afraid of Shrodinger’s Rapists (oh my god i still can’t get over the encompassing brilliance of this phrase) is a conditioned, learned response from being immersed in rape culture and the evolution of sexism and sexual violence in our society from the day we’re born. And unfortunately, it’s very difficult to unlearn without the efforts of all genders to dismantle it. Which is where you come in.

It’s also just rude and disrespectful to patently ignore what someone has told you regarding their personal space, body, and time. Get a clue.

I will always reblog this. Always.
