The color of your skin does not change your morals.
Your religion does not justify your bad actions.
Your gender does not dictate your role in society.
Your economic status does not lessen your value.
Your physical appearance does not make you any less than beautiful.
Your actions are not determined by the labels people give you. Your actions are determined by your thoughts and your values. You choose the kind of person you want to be, peoples idea of who you’re supposed to be should not change that. Being a minority does not make you better than the majority. Being a majority does not make you better than a minority. Equality requires no qualifications.
Not wanting children, having tattoos, swearing, or not being able to cook does not make you ‘less of a woman’. You know what does make you less of a woman?
Not identifying as female. That’s it. Fuck off with your outdated gender roles conformism bullshit.
Being demigirl or female-aligned does not make you any less nonbinary or valid. Never let anyone tell you that you are female and that nonbinary people don’t exist. You are valid and your gender is valid.
Clarke shows bisexual people that their sexuality isn't just a "phase" and that no matter who you are with, male or female, you are still bisexual and you aren't any less of a person for it. She shows us that women can be strong leaders and do not simply act on emotional instinct.
Bellamy shows us that a man of color is just as important as anyone else and that no matter what people say, it's okay to show emotion even if you're a man. He shows us that hating yourself does not mean that everyone else will hate you. He shows us that mistakes you make will haunt you and they won't go away until you work to fix them.
Raven shows us that a woman of color with a disability is not weak, and is in fact the strongest character, and she shows us that it's okay to give into pain sometimes because you're strong enough to dig yourself out.
Monty shows us that Asian men shouldn't only be portrayed as the "nerdy" one. He shows us that Asian men are as attractive as any other race, they are not below them.
Jasper shows us that it's okay to fall apart sometimes, it's okay to not be strong all the time.
Murphy shows us that a rape survivor is not weak and he shows you that love will not be taken away because of something that someone did to you. He shows us that it's also okay to not cry, it's okay to hide pain with whit.
Octavia shows us that it's okay to feel like you don't belong, it's okay to choose your own path and it's okay to mourn.
Indra shows us that a black woman can be an amazing leader just as well as a woman of another race could be. She shows us that both discipline and love can be one in the same and the way you show love does not make it any less meaningful.
Lincoln shows us that you don't have to be like everyone around you, it's okay to be what you feel you need to be. He shows us that it's okay to love someone who isn't of the same race as you and it's okay to be both a warrior and a lover.
Wells shows us that black men aren't bad people. It's you who has the right to choose what kind of person you want to be, regardless of the color of your skin.
Miller shows us that being gay doesn't mean you're weak or any less of a man. He shows us that gay men can also love men of other races. He shows us that being a warrior has nothing to do with sexuality.
Brian shows us that people make mistakes and do things they regret, but the people you love with never love you any less. He shows us that gay men do have a voice and they are as important as any straight man.
Emori shows us that a woman with a disability is not any less beautiful than a woman who doesn't have a disability. She shows us that warriors come in all shapes and sizes and that people will love you for who you are. She shows us that accepting ourselves is the most important thing that you can do.
Harper shows us that loving someone of a different race doesn't mean you simply "settling" she shows us that being a woman does not mean that you cannot be a fighter as well. She shows us that PTSD doesn't make you unstable and it doesn't mean that you aren't brave.
Don't take away people's representation, because to some people these characters mean the world to them
Highschool DxD is a series that follows a team of devil servants serving the Gremory family under Rias Gremory. With our initial introduction having the male lead, Issei Hyodo, nearly killed by a fallen angel, we watch the set move through 12 episodes, building up their abilities and teamwork.
Alright, with that established, this series can easily be categorized as ecchi. From the opening sequence for the series, to any number of interactions, there’s never a time they can’t make an excuse to show a bare set of breasts, or possibly an ass. If you go in knowing that, it might be less jarring. That said, every male of importance in this series, plus a few of the females, are excessively sexual in nature. There’s moments where this can be entertaining or intriguing, but plenty where it just feels pointless.
Recommended? If you’re an ecchi type, yeah, it’s more palatable than some I’ve seen and Rias does have an attractiveness about her. Still, there’s moments where I think this series could be better - but couldn’t do it.
If you are black/brown/female/LGBTQIA/Muslim/Hispanic/Latino/disabled/poor, you are 100% valid and the views of the president does not determine your value in anyway, you’re important and you mean a lot to this world
If you’re against Trump but are surrounded by supporters of him (friends/family/etc.) and cannot say anything against him for fear of being attacked, you are brave and hiding your views to keep yourself protected does not make you any less valid
If you are white/male/straight/cis/Christian and you are against Trump, you don’t have to feel guilty for being the way you are, you’re not a bad person for coincidentally resembling a typical Trump supporter in ways you can’t help
If Trump’s presidency particularly affects you and/or loved ones directly, you are VALID
If Trump’s presidency affects your group(s) but not you and/or loved ones in particular, you are VALID
If Trump’s presidency doesn’t affect you directly but you remain against him out of your concern for those affected, you are VALID
YOU ARE ALL VALID AND I LOVE YOU, THIS GOES TO EVERYONE NEGATIVELY IMPACTED BY THIS SHITHEAD IN ANY WAY, DO NOT LATE HATRED WIN THE WORLD OVER! LOVE EACH OTHER!
Anybody arguing against this post will be ignored and blocked. This is a post for positivity and love, I will not tolerate hatred.
Am I valid as Agender if after discovering that I was Agender.I was able to live a year and a half as a cisgender female because I was in denial and felt fine as a cisgender female during that time.
Hello anon, thanks for the question.
Being in denial about your gender alignment or just questioning it, no matter how long that lasted, does not make your identity any less valid once you figure it out. Additionally, the fact that you felt fine while “passing” as cis also doesn’t make you any less agender.

The divas deserve better. #GiveDivasAChance @WWE Because being “feminine” does not make the women any less strong, any less fierce, any less of a warrior.#GiveDivasAChance @WWE Because there is a damn good reason @IamJericho said the men should follow the women’s lead #GiveDivasAChance @WWE The only reason your female wrestlers are taken “less seriously” is because YOU don’t take them seriously #GiveDivasAChance @WWE sostratusfying: the disrespect the divas get from wwe and cocky smarks is disgusting they are given little time, yet work just as hard #GiveDivasAChance Velvet Sky:#GiveDivasAChance is trending.

So I’m ngl, I’m one to complain about german grammar because it’s so hard at times, BUT HERE’S A POST ABOUT THE GOOD THINGS! === 1) There are only 4 cases, with genitive being used less and less - this is a tiny number compared to many other European languages.
2) 99% of verbs end -en, this is so simple compared to French, Italian and my God definitely English.
3) No distinction between masculine/femine plural - some languages (hi French) make distinctions between masculine & feminine plural words, in German this does not exist except for names of professions and female animal species.
4) Words themselves are rarely inflected - Only in dative plural, genitive masc & neuter and some weak masculine nouns. This means you only ever have to learn 1 form of a word (and plural… sorry) as the articles are what normally show inflection.
5) VERY few verb tenses - Technically there are 6, of which 4 you are going to use the most. This is a tiny number compared to many other European languages.
6) Verb positioning is very concrete - the verb is either first, second or last position in a clause - it cannot be anywhere else.
7) All nouns are capitalised - this is such a godsend and very few languages do this. English went through a period of doing it then stopped but good ol’ Germany powered on through.
8) To ask questions you can literally flip the first 2 items of a sentence - I’m given to believe this is quite common outside of English’s weird ‘do construction’ but nevertheless it’s important to remember how simple this is. === So yes let’s all take a moment to be thankful in light of the fact that German grammar really could be a lot worse.
tv meme: 10 female characters · julia braverman “Does telling me exactly what I should say make you feel like less of a control freak?” “All right fine, this is who I am. I am going to accept it. I’m a control freak.”
Destroy the term “tomboy.” Eliminate the idea that girls who enjoy outdoor activities and sports should be referred to as “boyish.” Outdoor activities and sports are just as much for girls as they are for boys.
Destroy the term “girly-girl.” Eliminate the idea that the only girls that are true girls are the ones who like dressing up and playing with dolls.
Engaging in traditionally female activities does not make you more of a girl than one who prefers traditionally masculine activities. And engaging in traditionally masculine activities does not mean you’re less of a girl than one who doesn’t.
Agender Afrovenator is without gender, and, regardless of the sex they were assigned at birth, does not view themselves as male, female or anything in between. This theropod understands that their lack of gender identity does not make them any different from, or any less equal to, those individuals who do have genders - you are not an empty or broken person for being agender, but rather a complete individual who, like all people of any gender, deserves to experience a rich and fulfilling life under the identity that most fits who you are inside.
An African relative of the large European carnivore Megalosaurus, Afrovenator’s slender, lightweight skeleton and relatively long arms and legs characterize it as an agile, fast-moving hunter.
May I ask what's the scoop on Iron Fist? Skip altogether? Does Colleen even make it worth it? (I don't know if I can handle an actual hookup?)
The first ep is pretty terrible. Danny pretty much “ni hao”s Colleen. (Did they seriously not have any Asian female writers in the room?) But, imo, if you can watch Mon-El and Kara then Danny and Colleen is slightly less offensive because at least Danny is the main character. And he’s not a sexist asshole. And it’s not Colleen’s job to make him a better person. They don’t really have any chemistry so every time the story calls for something romantic between them I just roll my eyes.
The fight scenes are extremely underwhelming. (Especially once you watch Lewis Tan in ep 8 and read articles saying that he had auditioned for Danny Rand. OMG I’ll never get over that.) At least once an episode someone will be holding a pose for about a second for no reason in order for them to get hit by their opponent. This could be sloppy editing and not the choreography. It’s hard to tell. I would definitely watch some kind of palate cleanser show if you’ve been watching Into the Badlands.
Claire Temple is the bright spot of every single scene that she’s in and makes me wonder why Netflix won’t give her her own series. Jeri Hogarth is amazing. Harold Meechum is pretty great too. The show’s big weakness is its title character, which is sad and disappointing. The thing with Danny Rand is that there’s nothing that differentiates him from every other rich, white superhero dude.
TL;DR It’s a pretty generic superhero show starring some boring white dude and a much more interesting supporting cast. You could probably skip it, but the scenes that Danny Rand isn’t in are enjoyable.
I kind of really wish I’d stop seeing the phrase “feminist movie” or “feminist book” applied to any piece of media that does a better than usual job of handling it’s female characters.
Feminism is not the absence of sexism, it’s a word for the movement dedicated to raising awareness of and eradicating institutionalized sexism. A feminist movie would be a movie ABOUT the feminist movement, or a movie that directly identifies and addresses issues of structural inquality between genders.
Just having a female character you don’t sexualize in a piece of media doesn’t make it a grand stand against the patriarchy. It literally just makes it a little less sexist than most everything else. It doesn’t make you a feminist film director for making it, it just makes you not a fucking asshole with his head so far up his ass he can’t see the way the world is actually built.
Is SW:TFA a feminist movie? No, not even close, not even a little tiny bit at all. The movie’s not ABOUT gender or related struggles, ideas and philosophies.
But is it a movie that respects its female characters, gives them usually-limited-to-men levels of agency and power over the plot, makes sure there are women in the background of shots, and doesn’t sexualize them? Yes, abso-fucking-lutely yes.
SW:TFA is a movie feminists will like (at least parts of it), it is a movie that demonstrates some of the basic, basic things Feminism wants from media, but it’s not a feminist movie.
This is what transgenderism does to women and their identities. It supports the idea that the more time and effort that a person puts into their appearance, the more of a woman they are.
Woman doesn’t come in degrees. It isn’t conditional on the use of nailpolish, hair straighteners, and make up.
Women can present as masculinely or femininely as they like and they are still women. They are still whole women. A butch lesbian is no less of a woman than a feminine presenting heterosexual woman.
It is internalised misogyny to think that a man is more of a woman than you because he paints his nails and does his hair.
Women are adult, female, humans.
also.. male doesn't mean you need to present 100% masculine (if ac is guy wears makeup, is he less of a man?) and female doesn't mean you need to present 100% feminine (if a cis girl wears a button up does that make her less of a woman?). non binary is non synonymous with masculine (a dfab non binary person can! surprise! dress feminine and still be non binary! what a fucking shocker!)..... just a nice lesson for you :)
