#john barrowman is having none of your misogynist bullshit

i love that barrowman’s response also distances him from the contestant
"hahahaha women do laundry right john?  you with me, john?"
"don’t lump me in with you, you fucking martian”

This is what I’m talking about when I keep saying that men have to deny the endorsement. This guy wanted Barrowman’s tacit support or agreement for his sexism, as part of bonding through humour. John went nope.

Bolding mine.

this is what I need from the men in my life

you want us to believe you don’t hate us? I need to hear this come out of your mouths when we are in a group situation and one of the guys thinks he’s being funny

when you shuffle awkwardly and tell me AFTERWARDS that so-and-so was being a dick that has precisely ZERO value to me okay?

Seriously, this is such a huge problem. Men want to seem cool to other men so when you call men on their shit you’re actively saying “that ain’t cool” and it makes them see dumb and then they don’t do it as much. I don’t care too much for guys who are only feminists when around women.

Bold italics mine cuz TRUTH!

I don’t do private apologies after someone has tried to humiliate me in public. If you’re gonna act out in public then don’t be a fuckin’ coward and try to make amends in private so that YOU won’t be embarrassed.

Also as a woman I would have been useless as I have no notion of what that means

Discovery In Israel Of Oldest Metal Object In Middle East Pushes Back Historical Knowledge By Centuries
By NoCamels Team August 28, 2014 Comments

A copper awl, the oldest metal object found to date in the Middle East, was discovered during the excavations at Tel Tsaf, according to a recent study published by researchers from the Zinman Institute of Archaeology at the University of Haifa.
According to the study, which appeared in the prestigious journal “PLOS One,” the awl, a long pointed spike, dates back to the late 6th millennium or the early 5th millennium BCE, moving back by several hundred years the date it was previously thought that the peoples of the region began to use metals.

A small finding with big meaning
Tel Tsaf, a Middle Chalcolithic village dated to about 5200-4600 BCE, is located near the Jordan River and Israel’s border with Jordan. The site was first documented in the 1950s and excavations there began at the end of the 1970s. From the earliest digs nearly 40 years ago, this area, the most important archeological site in the region dated to this period, has been supplying researchers with a great deal of valuable data.
Yet the most important finding to date is only 4 centimeters long. In the current research project led by Dr. Danny Rosenberg this unique item, a copper awl measuring 1 millimeter thick at the tip that was set in a wooden handle, was actually found during a previous excavation at the site by Prof. Yosef Garfinkel of the Hebrew University. The cone-shaped awl was found in a sealed grave of a woman about 40 years old that was dug inside a silo, and around her waist was a belt made of 1,668 ostrich-egg shell beads. The grave was covered with several large stones, and according to Dr. Rosenberg, its location within a silo testifies to both the importance of the deceased and the importance the community ascribed to the facility in which she was buried.

You, me, and this bug rode the 4 train from Brooklyn into Manhattan this morning from Borough Hall to 14th St. You were sitting in front of me, and noticed the bug as I was trying to take this picture. Somewhere under the East River, you asked if it was a grasshopper. I replied that I was…

Simply beautiful :-)
