What to do when it’s time to move on

Hey my lovely followers,

I know, I know. I said I would be back with a decision and then my silence kind of made clear what my decision was, which I regret. You deserve better from me than radio silence, and I appreciate all of the messages saying you missed my posts and loved the blog while I was away. As it stands today, it has now been a few months since I’ve logged onto 9gag and frankly, my life has been much better for it. While it was fun for awhile, eventually having to go on that site several times a day to see what fresh hell they’d released onto the world started to eat away at my will to live, and it became harder and harder to write jokes and funny captions about the same shit I’d been seeing since the beginning.

One of the things I always enjoyed most about running stfu9gag was answering people’s questions about feminism, and because of that I’m starting a new blog, How Do I Feminism? as a way to answer questions about feminism, how to handle every day situations from a feminist stand point, and generally to give advice and help to people who might want a second opinion or who are new to the movement. If you’re interested in checking it out, please follow and submit your questions, and we’ll have some fun answering them!

Anonymous asked: I hope you do decide to continue running this blog, a lot of people really enjoy it, and you do an excellent job at calling out the bullshit.

Thank you for saying so! I’m thinking about it, after next Tuesday I’ll be able to concentrate on what I actually want to do because my summer classes will be over. To everyone else who’s sent me messages — I’m not ignoring them, I just can’t concentrate on them right now and will answer in due time. Thank you for your patience.

Anonymous asked: Hey, are you ok? Not that I'm stalking your STFU 9gag Tumblr (ok mibbe a bit) but I'm a bit worried something may have happened. Hope you are ok!

I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to worry anyone! Yes, I’m fine, I’m just insanely busy right now with grad school and feeling some ennui about continuing this blog. I think I’ve finally reached the much-predicted point where logging into 9gag makes me want to vomit.

It’s funny because homeless people are poor and lack the guarantee of safety and shelter provided by not having to live on the streets to survive.

Anonymous asked: Like your previously published Anon, I also agree with you and the intent of this blog, but would like to raise another question: The 'Your dicks belong in our mouths' statement. Something about that doesn't ring true. Am I misreading it wildly when I say it creeps me out? As a penis owner, I don't know if I'm comfortable being told by someone else where my dick belongs.

That’s a very valid feeling. No one should be telling anyone what to do with their body — I guess I should clarify that my condemnation of the guy’s response doesn’t mean I approve of the original image.

Anonymous asked: I usually agree with you on most things, but I don't really see how you came to that conclusion under post/27844255974. Like I think the guy was focusing on the fact that the girls look like they're all thirteen, hence the "I'm telling your parents" thing.

Which is a point he could have made without calling them whores.
