Israeli women do ‘Gaza Strip’ for IDF

After thinking long and hard of a way to boost morale among IDF soldiers engaged in combat, a new Facebook page is attempting to bring a fresh and uplifting meaning to the words “Gaza Strip.”
Over the past few days, dozens of women have begun posting racy photos of themselves online, with messages in support of Israel’s troops inscribed across their scantily clad bodies.
The Facebook page, titled “Standing With the IDF – Maintaining a Protective Edge” (in a rough translation from the Hebrew), was created Wednesday night and has already gained over a thousand likes.
The page’s creator, Gavriel Beyo, explained that it was his sincere concern for the soldiers’ morale that motivated him to embark on the unusual campaign.
“We have two bountiful resources in Israel that are impossible to compete with, Israeli minds and the most beautiful women in the world,” Beyo explained in a post on Facebook
“We also have a military front so… why not combine the two?” he added.
“Besides, what chance does Hamas have in the face of our women?”
Beyo stated that the responses to his endeavor were overwhelmingly positive, with many troops expressing to him their great joy over the images.
“Think of these pictures any time it gets hard (in any way…),” Beyo advised the soldiers.
“Remember what you’re fighting for and what is waiting for you back home.”

You’ve got to be fucking kidding me.

This reads like some kind of Fascist Manifesto honestly

"those awful Muslim Arab Barbarians and their evil oppression of women for their violent goals"

 fucking hell

Tacky, tasteless and offensive on a good day, and given the circumstances, it’s really reprehensible. What the fuck is going through their minds, I’m sure I don’t know.

I assume that you'd be really freakin' fun to spend a day or two with, whether it be via broadening intellectual horizons or trying all these new things with you, like Krav or any of your other hobbies. I also assume that you'd be a really cool teacher/professor if that field ever interested you!!

Oh my god, I don’t know. I’m forever getting up to mischief, though, so if that was your jam than I don’t see why not.

One of my fondest tumblr-adjacent memories is actually getting to meet one of my readers, and we hung out and then were like “WHAT TO DO” so we got a little baked and went to play glow in the dark mini golf at like, midnight.

Fair warning: I am competitive.

But yeah. Like, I love trying new stuff. Once, I just decided that my friends and I were too exhausted and stressed from studying for exams and we needed a break, so I sent out a mass text and said “meet in the quad with pillows, we are having a battle” and I sent it to like ten friends and then I get to the quad and there were like, fifty people there with pillows because I guess everyone wanted to go beat out some stress.

Or the time I got bored at two am, so I went over to my friend’s house on a random Thursday, did his makeup to look like a zombie and then we waited for the clubs doing thirsty Thursdays to empty out.
And then we zombie-crawled the really drunk stragglers. Highlight of the night was seeing the one frat bro /scream/, like full on scream of terror, and SHOVE HIS FRIEND DOWN AND TAKE OFF SPRINTING.

and his friend just laid there like, terrified for a second before scrambling to his feet and booking it after his friend. I don’t know what was going through their minds, but I nearly peed myself laughing. I had to sit down I was laughing so hard.

So I guess I’m pretty fun.

I’d be a shit professor, though. I’d never mark shit ever. Though I imagine I’d be the sort to swear a lot and do pub crawls with my students while regaling then with trivia.

"ANd that’s how a zombie apocalypse could happen! 8D"

To the horror of every tenured prof ever.

Disney’s The Jungle Book cast so far: Neel Sethi as Mowgli, Ben Kingsley as the voice of Bagheera, Lupita Nyong’o as the voice of Rakcha, Scarlett Johansson as the voice of Kaa and Idris Elba as the voice of Shere Khan (x x x x)

YO, THIS IS A REAL THING THAT IS HAPPENING
And not only is the cast amazing, but the film is going to be a mixture of live-action and animation (a-la Mary Poppins). Neel Seth (Mowgli),is going to be the only live-action actor and everyone else’s characters will be animated AND I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED.


Wait, wait. A big-money project with a main cast that’s got 4 out of 5 people of colour? Like, okay, this is an excellent preposition. Though it’s a shame Eartha Kitt passed. She would have pulled off Kaa’s sinister attitude perfectly. (Though Idris as Shere Khan makes my little heart go pitty-pat pitty-pat) freckledtrash:

the-uncensored-she is super critical of white women (which is legitimate) yet still religiously blogs photos of Tupac, a known rapist.

See, but I don’t think that’s necessarily any of my business? I can see how it doesn’t look good, but maybe she accepts that cognitive dissonance and recognizes that #her fave is problematic or whatever. I’m no better in that regard, since I think Meryl Streep is a wonderful actress and she’s got ties to Woody Allen. I’m in no position to judge, so I won’t presume to.

But I wish we could get back to the topic on hand, which in this context is the really vile insinuations that article was making. I think there’s a really important conversation to be had there, and I, for one, would like to have it.

This baseless hysterical bologna that has become popular on tumblr? Like honestly I’m not doing background checks on every single post I reblog. Aint nobody got time for that shit, get the fuck over yourself. 

Oh ‘she is super critical of white women which is legitimate’ then why mention that bit? If its an issue and you dont like being checked on your whiteness than dont follow her? 

Is she defending rape? Is she an actual rapist? Of course not, and there are many tumblr famous people that should be on your ignore list because THEY ARE ACTUAL RAPISTS. In the event that I accidentally reblog something from a pedo, rapist or otherwise less than human stain ends up in my feed please, let me know! But keep this ‘oh she likes this and thats problematic’ and ‘hey she is friends with this person’ bullshit off my dash. Its been a long time since jr. high and I have no desire to go back. 

Well, it does require come context. UCS has made some fairly egregious comments about other women, and has obliquely insulted me. It’s mostly been a shitshow, and it’s not one I care to engage in.

This ask makes a bit more sense when you see the threads that inspired it, though. It’s less a “don’t reblog from xyz she’s problematic” and more “we’re both standing in shit so why bring up the stink?”

I don't understand - You can support palestine (and question women who don't) without making women feel bad about their bodies.

Yes. The two are not mutually exclusive.

For me, I can’t ethically spend thousand of hours talking about the harm of the beauty industry etc etc and then turn around and be like “but nahhh, I don’t like this chick so like, lol w/e she fugly”.

Shit, I’ve defended Ann Coulter when people make cracks on her appearance, and that’s a woman I find reprehensible beyond compare. You can’t pick and choose who to defend, because you’re not defending the individual, you’re critiquing the /system/.

Anonymous asks:

How do you feel about the term 'handmaiden'? I noticed a lot of radfems such as the-uncensored-she use this term to refer to bisexual and straight women. I think it's disgusting and misogynistic.

Well, the term itself was used in Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale”, to refer to women who were forced against their will to pair with a man whose wife was infertile in the hopes of giving him a live child.

It’s certainly a fraught term, and I’m not particularly fond of it.
I might have a temper and be a bit of a sassy brisket, but I’ve always tried to be respectful and civil. I can’t and won’t comment on how other bloggers handle themselves, but I don’t find the term helpful or useful, and thus don’t use it.
