defend feminism

YOU KNOW WHAT REALLY PISSES ME OFF

WHEN SOMEONE WHO HAPPENS TO HAVE A PENIS SITS WITH A BUNCH OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE VAGINAS AND SOME PEOPLE ARE LIKE “oh they’re gay”. AND WHEN SOMEONE WHO HAPPENS TO HAVE A VAGINA SITS WITH A BUNCH OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE PENISES AND PEOPLE ARE LIKE “oh they’re such a slut” LIKE CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME HOW THERE IS ANY CORRELATION BETWEEN GENITALS AND SEATING ARRANGEMENTS! LIKE PLEASE GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS AND REALIZE THAT PEOPLE WITH DIFFERENT GENITALS CAN BE FRIENDS AND ALSO SOME PEOPLE DON’T THINK ABOUT HAVING SEX 24/7 OR SOMETIMES EVER!!!

just realized another aspect of fandom racism. when daenerys burned the lannister army, people were in an outrage, rightfully so. however, when daenerys burned the dothraki holy land, people congratulated it as women empowerment. see the difference? it’s almost as if the burning of white men is offensive but the burning of moc is feminism lol.

Why You Should Watch “The Bold Type”

-A feminist TV show that feels feminist an defends it definition of feminism

-Doesn’t shy away from the horrible realities of rape culture.

-Women ALWAYS helping other women. Granted it hasn’t been many episodes, but I have yet to meet a ‘vindictive bitch’ character. The boss, which they could easily have fall into a cold, icy, mean character is actually supportive.

-Men who also ALWAYS help women. I have yet to see a man who isn’t great on this show, who doesn’t try to understand these women and support them.

-A woman questioning her sexuality without that being her only plot point.

-For all my gays, Katie Stevens, Karma from “Faking It”, is the main character here.

-A gay, Muslim woman that writers genuinely treat as an important 3-Dimensional character. Also, a black questioning female character who is a lead.

-On that note, 3-Dimensional characters. Writers who actually care about their characters.

-There is never unnecessary drama, and it remains entertaining without falling to stupid, overdone clichés (thus far).

-Women pursuing their dreams, but not in a way that feels preachy; instead its empowering.

-Women being strong and confident. Women who go in and ask for that raise. Women who are proud of their bodies. Women who fight back. Women who own themselves and their sexuality. Women who are their own role models. Women who I could’ve used as role models when I was younger.

-Women who deal with actual issues facing us younger audiences, especially social media realities in a way that doesn’t make fun of us or see our problems as just comic relief, but handles them seriously.

nothing infuriates men more than women not trusting them. nothing. not even the men giving us reasons not to trust them.

you’re not going to bully us into feeling safe around you. what you could do is actually punish and ostracize the men who make us unsafe, instead of defending them.

i hate how literally every single post that criticizes makeup or femininity in any way, even the smallest amount, has like 50,000 comments on it saying “yeah but also don’t forget makeup is great and fun and empowering! there is nothing wrong with being traditionally feminine! don’t let anyone shame you or make you feel bad for being feminine! you are not an anti-feminist because you’re traditional! you can be a submissive housewife! anyone who doesn’t think gender roles are badass and feminist hates women!!”

like it’s so damn annoying and unnecessary
