WHEN PEOPLE SAY YOU HAVE PRIVILEGE THEY ARE NOT SAYING THAT YOU DON’T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS

THEY ARE SAYING YOU DO NOT HAVE THE SPECIFIC PROBLEMS THAT COME FROM OPPRESSION

THIS IS NOT A DIFFICULT CONCEPT

misogyny is a room full of broken glass

  • Woman: Holy shit, this room is full of broken glass!
  • Man: What are you talking about?
  • Woman: This room, right here, is full of fucking glass shards, all over the floor.
  • Man: Oh, I guess I see a big pile there over by the window. It's okay, you know windows are gonna break sometimes, you expect it and you should just ignore it.
  • Woman: No, I'm saying there is broken glass ALL OVER THE FLOOR.
  • Man: Okay, I think you're overreacting. Look, there's a perfectly intact glass in the cupboard right there. I can see it. Not all the glass is broken.
  • Woman: That's great, I don't care about one fucking glass out of a thousand not being broken. We need to clean this up.
  • Man: I only broke like one or two glasses, and it was a while ago, and I really don't think I break glasses anymore. Most of this mess was here when I got here.
  • Woman: But you're here, right now, and you can help me clean it up.
  • Man: Why do we have to clean it all up? I saw someone come in here and clear a little away earlier, isn't that enough?
  • Woman: No! We have to pick up EVERY LAST SHARD of glass. Even a tiny shard is going to hurt someone really badly.
  • Man: What? You're crazy! That's never going to happen! You glass cleaners are so unrealistic. You should just ignore it. Talking about it is making it worse.
  • Woman: I'm going to point out every last piece of broken glass until it is all picked up.
  • Man: Well, whatever, I'm not helping you clean it up.

I am so over people thinking that Leis look like this:

A lei takes hard time and vigorous work. We (Hawaiians) wake up at the crack of dawn to gather whats needed to make the lei that we want. It can take hours or days to make the leis and Hawaiian’s make leis with only good intentions and love because they believe that if you make a lei with malicious intent it will come out into the lei. There is many different ways to make leis and we also make leis from shells and feathers. It isn’t only Hawai’i that makes leis but throughout Polynesia fellow Polynesians make leis in their own style. 

To call the above image a lei is disrespectful to my culture and I want that shit to stop. That isn’t a lei, the images in the photoset are leis.

In which James Franco tries to hook up with a minor and she plays him masterfully (x)

Also, from lucy_clode on Instagram: 

James Franco is 35. This is gross and creepy.

I remember posting somewhere once in a thread about why girls aren’t exploited in animation anymore where some guy said, “all the disney girls are drawn to be generally attractive, but I don’t think there are any eye-candy men… or are there? Are there any Disney men that lots of girls like?” and I mentioned Roger. Tons of girls replied agreeing with me and the original guy was like “wait, Roger? from 101 Dalmatians? What’s attractive about him, he’s tall and lanky and has a big nose, he isn’t muscley at all! Wouldn’t you all prefer Gaston or something? Or do you girls think his big nose is indicative of something else?” and I was like “no, you idiot, he’s a silly, goofy guy who likes animals and can play a bunch of instruments, that’s why he’s attractive. What’s the matter with you? Gaston, seriously?”

This is why we need more girls in animation. And more guys like Roger apparently. 

This is why I laugh my ass of whenever dudes talk about how men are “objectified” by the media too. Because 9 times out of 10, what men think is “women objectifying men” are characters like Gaston.

And Gaston is NOT a woman-driven fantasy. Gaston is a male wish fulfillment fantasy. Gaston is not what women want, he is what men want to be. He is hyper-masculinity to an extreme degree, dripping with sexism and testosterone. The fact that men think that Gaston is what women want says an awful lot about those men. 

While I don’t want to generalize, female fans tend to prefer a very different kind of male hero. We like the Rogers, the Milos, the Hercules. Genuinely kind, often awkward men who are sometimes vulnerable and respectful to women. 

Yes, this is a generalization. I own up to that. But I think it’s important to remember that there is often VERY big difference between what MEN want to be and what women WANT in our media. 

Reblogging this again because fucking this. And hell, even the muscley dudes (see: Khal Drogo, Hercules, Thor, Captain America) are loved, not because they are muscley, but because they are sweet and loving and adorable. We love Thor because his mispronounces “Hubble” as “Hooble,” not because of what he can do with a hammer.

Reblogging for the awesome comments.

I agree with everything above but I am also definitely all about Gaston so let’s get lots of ladies with different relationship wants writing characters and drawing characters and generally being involved in media and we’ll all have someone to fangirl over

pretty excited by all the “fuck april fool’s” posts I’m seeing on tumblr.

I HATE APRIL FOOL’S AND ALL PRACTICAL JOKES. It’s pretty crappy to get joy out of embarrassing someone, especially because trust is hard to build and harder to rebuild. Also, humans have a tendency to believe by default rather than disbelieve because it’s less cognitive stress so gullibility is kind of normal and okay I’m done
