    you a bitch

    It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.

    So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.

    What’s more, it’s been shown that copula deletion occurs in AAVE exactly in those contexts where copula contraction occurs in so-called “Standard American English.” That is, the basic sentence “You are great” can become “You’re great” in SAE and “You great” in AAVE, but “I know who you are” cannot become “I know who you’re” in SAE, and according to reports, neither can you get “I know who you” in AAVE.

    In other words, AAVE is a set of grammatical rules just as complex and systematic as SAE, and the widespread belief that it is not is nothing more than yet another manifestation of deeply internalized racism.

  5. YouTube has a wealth of that kind of stuff. I don’t have any links off the top of my head but there is a ton of stuff if you take a look. You can find anything from nature to road sounds from inside a car.

    Awesome! Thanks, internet hi-5!

10 year old Yemeni girl smiling after she was granted a divorce from her husband- a 30 year old man
Here’s what I found after looking into it. 
Nujood Ali was nine when her parents arranged a marriage to Faez Ali Thamer, a man in his thirties. Regularly beaten by her in-laws and raped by her husband, Ali escaped on April 2, 2008, two months after the wedding. 
On the advice of her father’s second wife, she went directly to court to seek a divorce. After waiting for half a day, she was noticed by a judge, Mohammed al-għadha who gave her refuge. He had both her father and husband taken into custody.
Indeed, publicity surrounding Ali’s case is said to have inspired efforts to annul other child marriages, including that of an 8 year old Saudi girl who was allowed to divorce a middle-aged man in 2009.
But in 2013 Ali reported to the media that her father had forced her out of their home and is withholding her money granted by publishers. Her father has also arranged a marriage for her younger sister, Haifa.
Also this girl has her own book

I just want some feminists to focus more on this than on defending Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian.

Realistically, what can they do? Most of the feminists that you likely encounter are based in USA, Canada, maybe UK. What can they do to affect attitudes and policies in a place like Yemen?

They can raise awareness. Tumblr is a global site where you can donate to people in many countries to aid them. A very good thing they can do, for one, is set up donations for this kid or other kids. They can put efforts to start up shelters for such incidents. There’s a lot of things western feminists can do. This post only has almost 9k posts, whereas a post about male tears has 36K. 

Say it.

    This is the gorgeous Kate Upton, being paid to do what she does best. 

    Please don’t share, like or reblog the stolen images that were taken from a young woman’s personal property. Every time you do that, you violate her all over again. 

    I really hope the vile human being who set out to embarrass and degrade successful young women gets what’s coming to him. 

    The successful women who have been unfortunate enough to be targeted by this criminal have nothing to be ashamed of 

    I’m really heartened that I have such amazing followers. The criminal (he is a criminal, he’s not a hacker - hackers expose the misdeeds of the powerful, not tap into the phones of young women like a grotty porno vendor) deserves everything coming his way. 

    And I really think it’s backfired 100% on this loser - everyone seems to be supporting the women affected, not applauding the ‘genius’ of this lowlife. 

    I’m not going to post anymore about this, I just wanted to say my piece because I’m a proud feminist and nothing grinds on me harder than women being victimised for behaviour that everyone indulges in at least once in their life.
