All my feminism-related posts are tagged #feminism. Lengthier and less substantial conversations are tagged #lengthy. Feminists exemplifying the points made in my antifeminism section are tagged #x.
Have I put this up on my blog before?
Fuck it, here it is again.
If you ignore the first two frames I agree wholeheartedly with this.
(But the idea that there are not riskier situations elsewhere in the world is… really silly. America is not everything!)
I just invented a new word:
DOGS ARE SUCH GLORIOUS CREATURES.
I love dogs so much oh my god
I’ve never met cr1tikal but I trust him.
Lol I just had someone tell me they wouldn’t sponsor my Storenvy shop because I have antifeminist views
C’est la vie
I love Harry’s face. Everyone else just kind of looks down, all serious, but Harry’s like “The fuck kind of school is this?!?”
"I left the Dursley’s for this?"
How come tumblr feminists never talk about reproductive rights like that’s the one area where women are actually being oppressed but yet they’d rather talk about how Assassin’s Creed doesn’t have enough females in it
Actually, women have far more reproductive rights than males. And even if males had equal rights, not being able to have abortions in certain areas =/= oppressed.
Unapologetic greed and selfishness. But that’s not just a modern thing, I realize…but it’s still the most detestable thing.
Also the need in some to make the world conform to your own ideals (usually religious). Like Christians in America trying to make the US a theocracy when it was never intended as such by having people swear on the Bible in court and putting “In God We Trust” on our money. Or like Radical Muslims such as ISIS terrorizing the middle east. Or for a non-religious example, people who essentially agree on things like gender politics and sexism being bad forcing labels like “feminist” on one another when one of them doesn’t want to consider themselves that.
Just let people be, you know?
"Making the world" conform to your own ideals is not something new, or even something inherently negative. What you’re describing is basically people having beliefs on how things should be done, and then taking steps towards that goal. Think about it: if you were a Christian who believed that a god was actively blessing your country, can’t you see why many people would think that alluding to god could aid the greater good? The vast majority of people aren’t pushing their own political and religious/philosophical values because they think that everyone else should be just like them and that everyone else are unwashed heathens who need to be taught. No, they do it because they genuinely believe that it’s best.
In fact, just by the nature of your blog you’re doing this same thing. You’re presenting your ideas, often in a persuasive matter, hoping that it will reach an audience and influence them. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that at all; if what you’re spreading is good, then there’s no problem!
The problem is when you’re trying to spread negativity, or when things are literally forced upon people who don’t agree with them. However, I still maintain that the vast majority of people who try to “make the world conform to their own ideals” only think so because they think it’s best.
(…And by the way, that’s definitely not the definition of theocracy…)
In the 1930s, men’s nipples were just as provocative, shameful and taboo as women’s are now, and men were protesting in much the same way. In 1930, four men went topless to Coney Island and were arrested. In 1935, a flash mob of topless men descended upon Atlantic City, 42 of whom were arrested. Men fought and they were heard, changing not only laws but social consciousness. And by 1936, men’s bare chests were accepted as the norm.
So why is it that 80 years later women can’t seem to achieve the same for their chests? Why can’t a mother proudly breastfeed her child in public without feeling sexualized? why is a 17-year-old girl being asked to leave her own prom because a group of fathers find her too provocative?
[…] I am not trying to argue for mandatory toplessness, or even bralessness. What I am arguing for is a woman’s right to choose how she represents her body — and to make that choice based on personal desire and not a fear of how people will react to her or how society will judge her. No woman should be made to feel ashamed of her body.
Scout Willis, in XOJane, on Instagram’s nudity policy and why she recently strolled the NYC streets topless. Solid essay all around. I found this piece particularly interesting because I’d never heard about the men’s nipples thing. (via batmansymbol)
So men worked hard to be accepted topless, and got it. And then there’s so many feminists who want the right to be given to them instead of having to fight for it..?
Women all over are working hard to normalize the female breasts. Instead of bitching to a ton of people who already agree with you, why not try to contribute to the fight instead?
This isn’t even Bodyline, it’s Infanta…
