"Women are afraid of meeting a serial killer. Men are afraid of meeting someone fat."
This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York. This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.

"3 percent of the decision-making in media comes from women. That means 97 percent of how women are portrayed is decided on by men."
Independent Lens, PBS
“Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines” (via ihopeyoucontinue4ever)
It also means that 97 percent of how men are portrayed in media are decided on by men. Something to remind MRAs and their ilk of when they complain about the stereotype of men as inept slobs, bad fathers, etc in media and advertising.
Men have the power. So when we men are shat on by the powers that be you don’t get to try and blame women for that.
I kiss down your body. You let out a moan. I continue down, my tongue running to your clit. You arch your back as I keep going, my lips pressed against your inner thigh. Lower and lower I go, until I hit your ankles. You look down, confused, as I kiss my way off your body and onto the ground. Kissing my way right out the door of your bedroom and into your fridge. I eat all your food and then proceed to leave without a word.
