ALRIGHT LISTEN UP IMMA TELL YOU SOME SERIOUS GENDER MARKETING BULLSHIT THAT WENT DOWN TODAY

Today a woman came in to get her 13 year old son’s black iPhone fixed. This thing was totally fucking busted. She was already kind of being bitchy so I’m just trying to reassure her that everything will be fine and shuffle through the paper work so shes on her way. She leaves, I put her phone away till I have time to fix it.

Well come to find out that we were completely out of black screens until next week’s shipment. So I put on a white screen for now and reassure her that when we do get black screens in that I will call her and we’ll put the new screen on for free. Better to have a temporary mixed match phone then a broken one right?

This woman proceeds to flip her shit. “WE CAME HERE TO GET WHAT WE HAD FIXED!” I calmly explain to her that there is nothing I can do about the color for the time being. The son is totally fine with this and obviously embarrassed by his mother’s outburst. The woman snatches the phone, sneers at it, and then shoves it back into my hands and says “NOW IT LOOKS LIKE A GIRL’S PHONE! I AM NOT GIVING THIS TO MY SON!”

At this moment I turn to her and say. “I don’t undersand? How is it a girl’s phone now?”

"Well it was BLACK and now its WHITE!!" She gestured dramatically at the screen like I couldn’t fucking see it.

"How is white a feminine color?"

She huffs and explains that she refuses to take the phone until the color is changed. The 13 is now rapid fire “its fine its fine” cause he just wants his phone back. But she keeps refusing but I finally tell her again that we will change the phone for free when we get black screens and that shes not allowed to keep it here.

The point of the matter is that this woman almost refused to even take back the phone BECAUSE OF ITS COLOR. Mind you its not even anything like pink or purple. ITS. WHITE.

A SUBURBAN WHITE WOMAN TURNED RED IN THE FACE WITH ANGER BEAUSE SHE THOUGHT WHITE WAS TOO GIRLY FOR HER SON.

And the son is more mature than her.

Reblog if you respect sex workers including women who work in porn, and will support them in their work.

Please restore my faith a little.

I do NOT mean excusing the wrongs and abuse that goes on within these industries. I mean supporting sex workers and their agency, and supporting them in their choices.

Spanish city hall gets wrapped in bras after mayor makes offensive comments

The city hall building in the Spanish city of Valladolid has been wrapped around with bras — and it’s pretty amazing.
The dramatic display of undergarments was carried out Monday after hundreds of people converged on the building and chained bras to its pillars. The evocative protest was in response to highly sexist and insensitive comments recently by the city’s mayor, Francisco Javier León de la Riva,

"Bulletproof vests sound like a great idea, but I’m not sure how we’ll get the gun to put it on."

I… I don’t even get how that suppose to work?

Like… is it mace?

Allow me to elaborate. A fingernail polish was developed that will change color when it comes in contact with common date rape drugs like rohypnol; the wearer has to stir their drink with their finger and wait a few seconds for the reaction.

It doesn’t exactly prevent rape, it just helps detect the presence of certain drugs.

Why is it easier to make body armour than it is to stop criminals with guns?

Wait I thought she meant, like, guys who get drugs slipped into their drinks. The original color of the nail polish is pink isn’t it? Right now, nail polish is explicitly marketed to women, and many men still aren’t comfortable with wearing nail polish…

wasn’t a woman who invented it. It was a group of men trying to make a positive difference in protecting as many lives as possible.

Oh! Thank you! I was told it was a group of college girls!
