everything men need to know about women

Alright guys so I’ve seen something happening over and over again on posts about Wonder Woman and Gal Gadot and I am caving and making an entire post about it.

This has to do with claims that she is a Zionist and that she’s an awful human being because she served in the IDF (the Israeli Army) and yada yada.

FIRST OF ALL: Serving in the Israeli military is required of all citizens. She served for 2 years as a combat TRAINER. She was badass enough to be a combat trainer in one of the most deadly armed forces in the world (these are the people who created Krav Maga, okay?) and she did not engage in active combat. She killed no one. Her service was mandatory and after she got out, she went to law school because she is very passionate about justice and social issues. The most noteworthy thing about her views on her time in the military is that she says quite frequently that she wishes no country had the need for a military. She is very much a proponent of peace.

As for the Zionism claims… there you get into the debate of what Zionism actually means. Does it automatically mean you are anti-Palestinian, or does it simply mean you believe in the Jewish state of Israel? I’ll let you decide but…

Here is what I do know about Gal: She is an Israeli. She was born and raised there. She believes her people have a right to their homeland because they, like her, were born and raised there. I have seen NOTHING of her saying anything hateful about Palestinians. You can argue about history all you like but the important thing is actually THE PEOPLE. The moment we side with a government over people is the moment we lose. Most people alive today in that area were born and raised there and so it IS THEIR HOME, regardless of them being Israeli or Palestinian. It is home to them both. (Again, not arguing the HISTORY of the people. But the actual people who are alive there today.) The goal should not be to take sides with either government, but to hope that the people themselves can coexist peacefully and happily. That is what Gal believes in. She wants the conflict to stop and for peace to be achieved. Just because she is a proud Israeli and a proud Jew does not mean she is automatically anti-Palestinian or anything else. Personally I think it is amazing and beautiful that an Israeli Jewish woman is portraying Wonder Woman, one of the most iconic superheroes of all time. 

Other things about Gal? She is most proud of being a mother to a 4-year-old little girl named Alma. Her daughter loves princesses but Gal says Alma has told her that princesses seem weak and that they always need a prince to save them. Gal said that broke her heart because she wants her daughter to grow up knowing that women are amazing and can do anything, and so can she. So being Wonder Woman has come at the perfect time for her because her daughter is watching her every move and she says Wonder Woman embodies everything that is wonderful about women. Not only is she strong and brave and fierce… she is compassionate and kind and intelligent. Gal says she hopes women AND MEN will see Diana/Wonder Woman and understand and appreciate all the complexities of being a woman and how powerful we are just by being ourselves. She’s also a real goofball and loves to joke around and dance on set. AND she gained… wait for it… 17 lbs of muscle for the role! That is INSANE! Not to mention that I’ve never heard anyone more coherently understand the true nature of Diana the way Gal does. She understands that the best thing about Wonder Woman is how truly GOOD she is… how much she cares and believes in mankind, and yet that compassion does not undermine her strength and power. Instead it enhances it. She really GETS the character and that’s why I’m so excited to see her portrayal.

So yeah… can we please stop blindly hating on her because someone somewhere made some claim and we think it makes us smart and politically superior to believe it and support it? It doesn’t. It just makes you look like a weak-minded jerk. Do your own research. This goes for other things as well. Don’t jump on hate trains just because you want to seem cool or smart.

GAL GADOT IS AMAZING AND IS GOING TO BE AN AWESOME WONDER WOMAN! I leave you with this gif of her being adorable on set of BvS.

Important to the Medblr and Nurblr community - as well as the other hardworking women who are both a mother and a professional.

You don’t have to feel guilty about pursuing your passion while raising a family.

Batman vs Superman was over two hours of two men bickering over who has the biggest brooding cock-I mean, who has the better method of "saving" people and whether or not it's ok for Batman to beat and brand criminals without regarding the fact that not everyone's as wealthy and privileged as his morally upright ass and for Superman to ignore the fact that not everyone's as indestructible as him, meanwhile Wonder Woman over here...

Ok.

Wonder Woman was vastly superior to bvs for two reasons.

-Wonder Woman is actually a likable lady and an idealistic believable super hero who doesn’t spend her entire moving thinking about how she COULD help people.

She charges in, headfirst, wanting to help people she doesn’t even KNOW because she wants to protect the people who’re dying.

-and Wonder Woman was just so much more subtle and less pretentious about its message.

Seriously.

Let’s talk.

Wonder Woman’s CHARACTER is not that she’s cold and heartless and…well, masculine.

She doesn’t EMULATE men.

She doesn’t need to act like a man to be strong.

She coos at a baby and kisses Chris Pine and doesn’t spend the entire movie ragging on women.

She dresses and acts feminine, and embodies kindness, grace, beauty, everything “feminine.”

And she’s also strong as fucking hell.

That is Wonder Woman.

She’s a good person.

She’s not some cold warrior goddess, an untouchable female shaped ideal.

She’s GENUINELY KIND.

She sees people suffering in the trenches and her first thought it, stop what we’re doing, we gotta help.

Chris pine and all of his men?

They’ve seen all of this.

They’ve hardened themselves to the horrors of war and accepted them as inevitable.

But Diana, new to the cruelty of the human world, is disgusted and she asks what’s wrong with you?

What is wrong with us?

We have accepted casualties. We have accepted pain.

We have excused suffering because we told ourselves long ago that we couldn’t do anything about it.

But Diana?

She does not accept that.

She fights, yes. She’s ferocious and she, unlike Batman, doesn’t have a compulsion against killing.

She was raised by warrior women, I mean come on.

But who does she fight for?

The women and children who did nothing wrong.

The injured, hopeless men fighting a war to end all wars.

The entire movie was lovely because all of Diana’s bewilderment at the way humans live was incredible.

She’s shocked at how dirty London is.

She’s not impressed by sex and she’s not impressed by war.

She thinks sexism is strange.

But she doesn’t like, rag on it, because Diana is literally so above it that she just wryly questions it at times.

Like I don’t care what all the whiny fanboys say.

There’s not an overt feminist message in this movie.

There’s no “men are so weak.”

There’s “men are corruptible” but as we see, Diana sees them as worth saving in the end, if only to fulfill her own ideals…

Which is feminist as fuck, I guess, because Diana doesn’t defend men because it’s her job.

She defends them because it’s her decision. Her morality. Her duty.

But the feminism in the movie comes from the fact that she’s so kind.

She breaks down when realizing that Ares isn’t behind it all, that MEN are the ones who are cruel to one another.

She sees the war and it’s only senseless violence to her.

All of the people she wants to help are the victims, and it’s clear cut, to her, who’s bad and who’s not.

But Chris Pine helps her realize that humans aren’t so clear cut.

And so even though she was disgusted by human actions, she still wanted to help the people in need.

I absolutely adore the scene where she’s charging across a battle field to pave the way to the town.

First off, it was so badass watching her knock aside artillery like it was nothing as the men cowered in the pits.

Second, SHE SAW THAT PEOPLE WERE SUFFERING AND SHE DIDNT CALCULATE.

She didn’t do a Batman, where she looked at the risks vs the benefits vs the needs of the many and the few.

She just charged in and did what she could.

Chris Pine told her she couldn’t do anything except help him with his plan, in order to stop the war and save them indirectly.

But Diana is a true warrior with the heart of a lion, man.

She helped them directly, with no nonsense, no politicizing, no planning, just action.

At the end she says love will save humanity?

That’s the kind of feminism Wonder Woman was embodying.

Wonder Woman wasn’t this lone independent operator who sneers at men who try to involve themselves in her business.

She was helped and supported by men, but it was clear that she was the star, the true hero who brought them and their plans together but also gave them a new hope, a new heart.

They were jaded by helplessness and mortal frustration, forced to fight to stand stills and accept human deaths.

She came and showed them something miraculous and wonderful: her power.

But not used to beat someone’s head in with a fucking sink.

Used to do good.

To fight for her morals, which aren’t corrupted by the human world’s greyness, not yet.

I loved this movie.

I loved this movie so much.

DC finally did good and we can stop pretending suicide squad and Batman vs superman were good.

Wonder Woman is the good DC movie.

Don’t even try to tell me BVS was better than Wonder Woman because if you genuinely believe that, either out of pride and obstinacy from all your bickering with marvel fans or out of delusional worshipping of anything DC, then I think you just like watching people beat people in slow motion and uncomfortably lofty , corporate-cut and stylized plots as interesting as watching a landscape time lapse.

Suicide squad was cut to bits by its editors, BVS suffered from some severe Snyder wanking, and justice league, I don’t know, we’ll see.

But Wonder Woman?

Best DC movie since dark knight.

God bless Patty.

I knew we needed a woman in charge to get the job done.

Now direct all sexist comments and sneering remarks about feminazis destroying your precious super hero genre with their “love” themes to my inbox where they’ll be lovingly deleted.

anonymous asked:

So in world history we're going over Spanish and American imperialism in the Philippines, and a bunch of kids keep saying how it 'helped' us. They say things like 'without Europeans, they'd still be living in the jungle' and other things of that nature.. As a filipinx, how can I address how wrong that is with them?

Good lord I’d like to recite my debate speech about how colonization fucked everything up. 

1) Colonization is the direct cause of colorism in the Philippines. 

It’s all rooted back to how the Spaniards differentiated us by putting us into categories according to skin tone. Lighter Filipinxs got better *house* jobs and darker Filipinxs got the hard outside labor. 

2) It was the genocide of our culture and writing system. 

Baybayin was the lost pre-colonial writing system before Spain. By the time Spain came, they were surprised at how we could read and write. Men and women. 

Know what that means? It was more of an egalitarian society. 

But oh no. We are just savages who lived in the jungle before the white saviors came. 

3) The Philippines has been constantly exploited for over 500 years. 

We’ve been colonized over and over and over again. Taken for our location and our resources. They made us hate our skin, hate our culture, and embrace everything that is white. 

I need to make a longer post about this cause arguments like this really piss me the fuck off cause the more I read up on this topic, the more I realize how much the root cause of racism and colorism stems from colonization. 

And the self-hate is passed down from generation to generation. You will get treated better if you’re light-skinned. Pale is beautiful. Brown is ugly.

This is something we’re told and grow up seeing and it’s all because some fucking white assholes imposed that on us. 

We barely know any of our history cause it was all wiped out and forgotten. They didn’t do shit to help us.

They exploited us.

couple of things that bugged me about that born sexy yesterday video, which imo are kind of emblematic of when white men try to dissect misogynistic and abusive tropes.

1. the infantilization of women and sexualization of children are part and parcel because they seek to blend the two into an indistinguishable figure. the video does not once make the obvious correlation to pedophilia, despite featuring A WOODY ALLEN FILM in his critique. he explicitly mentions power imbalances but doesn’t hit on the essence of this particular power imbalance, i.e. that making it acceptable to desire a woman who is childlike in nature erodes necessary boundaries of consent and age division. 

2. he says nothing about consent issues despite showcasing clip after clip of such scenarios.

3. his inclusion of race is perfunctory and brief even though, again, infantilization is hugely racialized. like, the fact that he felt he was coining a term (“born sexy yesterday”) for this trope when woc have been discussing infantilization of themselves AND white women in media for DECADES is so irritating lmfao.

4. “innocence is not sexy… experience is very sexy” is such a nasty thing to say like bruh this would all have been much easier if you had realized that sexiness is subjective and irrelevant to this conversation and that this trope is disgusting because it further blurs the lines between little girls and adult women. he spent far too long examining the psychology of why men might desire a “powerless childlike woman” because “they’re threatened by their powerful and experienced equals” and not nearly enough time acknowledging that more than one example he included was made by an abuser. is that not a tip off? does that not tell you everything you need to know about a storytelling trend? the people who make and propagate it?

African American men are the only group of men who constantly degrade and disrespect their own women. They try to make us feel ugly and worthless for being black women and then turn around and make fun of us for wearing weaves and accepting European beauty standards to feel more beautiful. I only say African American because in my experience, African and Caribbean black men tend to celebrate black beauty more and take pride in their women. I don’t know if it’s because of the slave mentality or what, but African American men really need to get it together. Black women go so hard for y'all and praise black men of all shades, but we never get the same in return. When they say “black lives matter,” they only mean black men because they don’t give a damn about us. I know this was all over the place. I’m just tired and fed up. I’m tired of people saying “it’s not about race” when literally everything is about race. I feel like we’re so beautiful and so amazing but we’re always overlooked and ignored for that white girl over there. I’m just tired…

“A what?” Killian asked, looking as befuddled as he had when Henry had congratulated him on their Wookie prisoner gag.

“A bachelor party,” David and Henry repeated in unison.

The three most important men in Emma Swan’s life sat together at a corner booth in Granny’s discussing the plan of action for tonight.  It was the night before David would walk his baby girl down the aisle, the first rite of passage he would get to experience as Emma’s father. It was Henry’s last night before officially having a stepfather, and seeing his mother marry the love of her life. And it was Killian’s last night as a bachelor, although he didn’t quite see the importance of celebrating his single status.

“Why on earth would I celebrate being a bachelor? I’ve been a bachelor for lifetimes. I’ll be a married man tomorrow, now that is something to celebrate,” Killian exclaimed.

David’s heart swelled a little bit at the happiness that Killian exuded, knowing that this reformed pirate was going to be the absolute perfect husband for his daughter. “Well, that’s just it, a bachelor party is one last hurrah, one last celebration as a free and single man.”

“And as I said, what I truly wish to celebrate is marrying Emma. So why don’t we have an ‘I’m getting married’ party instead?”

“You want a wedding shower?” David smirked.

“Aye, I quite like the sound of that. Now, just what does a wedding shower entail?”

“Jesus Christ, Hook, it was a joke. Wedding showers are for women… for the bride to be, not the groom!” David explained, exasperation at his future son-in-law coloring his tone. The blushing groom, he thought.

“Oi, mate, no need for sarcasm,” Killian shot back. “I don’t know everything about your realm. If it is a bachelor party I must have, then so be it.”

“Alright!” Henry pumped his fist into the air. “So what’s the plan fellas?”

David’s eyes about bugged out of his head at his grandson’s assumption that he would be at the bachelor party. A celebration among men. “Whoa, Henry, I’m not so sure your mother would be on board with you being at a bachelor party.”

“Gramps, we live in Storybrooke, it’s not like there will be drugs and strippers.”

David was speechless as he tried to pick his jaw up off the floor. Why was Henry even saying the word stripper? How did he even know about strippers? And drugs? He’s growing up too quickly, David panicked, now he positively felt like a grandpa as the need to keep Henry young and innocent surged through him. When he looked at Killian, the grin he saw on the pirate’s face wasn’t what he was hoping to see. He narrowed his eyes at Hook, as the man made eye contact with him, eyes filled with mirth no less. “What are you teaching my grandson?” David asked accusingly.

“I’m a pirate, Dave, not a man whore,” Killian deadpanned. He didn’t hold it against David, it was easy to blame a pirate, especially in uncomfortable situations; like when your grandson mentions naked women. Killian tried to school his features as he was having a hard time not bursting into laughter over the prince’s outrage.

Hullo darling! I love your writing discovered you through Nif. Love your Gladio chest day drabble. I had a horrible day yesterday, got my car repossessed by mistake in front of my friends. I'm in the need of FLUFFY LOVING. Could I get something with Gladio and a short female s/o please? Much love - Jinju

Oh no!!! :( I am so sorry to hear about that, dear. I do hope everything turns out okay. Your in my thought. Here, have some wonderful Gladio fluff. I hope it makes your day better <333

Everyone needs some romantic, fluffy, Gladio. We all know deep down this guy is just a teddy bear. Right?

Tagging @themissimmortal and @chocobrodreamteam for that Gladio love tho. 

Heels

The annual Crownsguard Ball was an extravagant party through by the Royal Family of Lucis in appreciation to the courageous men and women that have sworn to protect the Caelum family. All of those who were invited were allowed to bring a single guest. Lucky for you, Gladiolus Amicitia brought you as his date.

You felt extremely out of place. Never have you attended such a party. And never have you worn such a beautiful dress.

The indigo colored lace hugged every curve of your torso perfectly. The sleeves of satin draped down to your hands, revealing an elegant silver bangle hanging onto your right wrist. The skirt of you grown flowed down your legs to just cover your feet. Every inch of the dress was tailored to your exact measurements. You never imagined a dress to be so comfortable.

The heels you wore, however…

“If this is what it’s like to be tall, it’s not worth it,” you muttered to Gladio as he escorted into the Palace’s ballroom. “My feet are killing me.”

“Don’t worry, you’re still not that tall,” he teased you, pressing a hand to your back. He let the tips of his fingers play with your long, curled hair. 

Gladiolus towered over you. He stood at an almost monstrous height of six feet five inches tall. Nearly a foot and half taller than you.

Your shoes lifted you up several inches. Not only did they raise your height, but they raised your confidence. You genuinely felt beautiful. Gladio was sure to remind you of that constantly during the drive over to the Citadel.

The both of you have remained in a intimate relationship for almost a year now. He loved everything about you. Your vices, your virtues, he adored it all. Your short height included.

He loved to hoist you in his strong arms and carrying you around, acting as if you were some sort of damsel-in-distress. He always called you his “princess.”  

Tonight, you truly did feel like his Princess.

Two palace guards held open the double doors that reached the cathedral ceiling. Beyond the doors laid an elegantly decorated ballroom. Soft classical music filled your ears as you stepped foot into the setting. Nearly a hundred guests were scattered about. Some took sanctuary at the tables that covered the outer rings of the ballroom, while others swayed back and forth in a waltz on the dance floor.

“Where to first, milady?” Gladio inquired, removing his calloused hand from your back.

“I would love to dance, but Gods. My feet are already going to fall off.”

A smirk came to the burly man’s face, followed by a chuckle.

“You are so damn lucky they don’t make heels for guys.”

“I’m sure there are some out there. C’mon,” unexpectedly, Gladio hoisted you into his muscular arms.

“Gladio!” A yelp escaped your painted lips. “What are you doing?” You hissed, feeling the eyes of the numerous guest burn into you and Gladio.

“My Princess’s feet hurt,” you could hear the smirk in his voice. You resisted the urge to hop out of his arms to prevent causing more of a seen. It only took him a few moments to place you down safely into a chair that sat beside one of the tables.  He knelt down onto one knee and slightly lifted your dress a few inches, revealing your feet. His large hands slid off the navy blue heels you harbored on your feet. Once the culprits of your foot pain had been discarded onto the floor, Gladio stood up.

He held out his hand to you. “Now,” he cleared his throat, “would you care to dance with me?”
You got to your feet, which stretched out in sweet relief. You were back to your average height, but it was well worth it. “Lead the way, prince charming,” you nodded, slipping your hand into his. His amber eyes bored into your with sweet admiration. Slowly, he raised your hand to his lips and pressed several tender kisses across your knuckles.

“I love you,” his warm breath spread across the back of your hand.

“I love you, too.”

With a passionate kiss to the lips, you both headed to the dance floor where you danced the night away. Without your dreaded heels.

take this burden - part 30

[ let me go - cake ]

(seriously. please listen to the song even if you normally don’t)

-.

The main things The Wolf prided itself on was the music and the drinks.

Considering those are the main components of nightlife, it has to stand out. 

A few times a month they had themed nights.

From 60s/70s/80s/90s to jazz, electronica, heavy metal, country, rock, alternative, rap, pop, you name it.

For the most part, Mark and Julio had free reign.

Mark had the unique talent of reading the room and could get anyone from a bachelorette party to a group of office workers winding down from a long day on the dance floor or, at the very least, nodding their head to the music.

Two years ago, with He Tian’s enthusiastic support and generous backing, started his own company.

He’d offered to stay on at the club part-time, but He Tian turned him down, choosing to pay out the ass to bring him in at his going rate a few times a week.

Mark had taken it upon himself to train Julio in whatever dark arts he must practice, so they were never without a remarkably talented dj.

A ridiculous inside joke had given each staff member and several regulars personal theme songs they’d play when they entered the building, providing it wasn’t too busy.

Jane had been given full control of the bar in the same way. She’d taken the idea and made them each a personalized drink and endless supply of unique drinks based on movies and tv shows.

His first hires had been Mark, Jane, and Annie.(who had gone on to open one of the most popular underground dance clubs in the city, again with the support and assistance of He Tian.)

They’d managed to build something unique and beautiful and he’d compensated them all very well from the beginning.

Which wasn’t necessarily a good business move.

Without Julio’s green thumb they would have shut down in a month.

He didn’t like to talk their success because he hated people that went around flaunting that shit, but he’d poured his heart and soul into those two thousand square feet.

After three years, even a slow night brought in plenty for all of them to pay rent every month.

Given the chance, he loved to talk about it. 

They all did.

The only story he didn’t happily tell was Jane’s.

-

He’d met her at a strip club during a friend’s bachelor party.

She was, by far, one of the most beautiful people He Tian had ever seen.

What really got him was her attitude towards it all.

He’d been to many, many, strip clubs in his life- it comes with the territory- and figured, at 26, he’d seen it all.

In the end, what got him wasn’t her beauty.

She was one of four girls on stage.

Her skin glistened with sweat, her hair stuck to her shoulders and chest.

There was nothing bored or forced about her performance.

She moved to the music, nothing half-assed or repetitive about it, more than once using the pole in front of her as an air guitar or microphone.

She wore a pair of lacy, bright pink, panties. 

She danced barefoot, a huge smile on her face.

To his astonishment, she had no audience.  

He moved away from his friends and gestured for her to come over when the song ended.

She’d walked to him shyly, looking at the ground and led him to one of the rooms in the back.

He sat back in the seat as she straddled his lap.

‘Be still, please.’

She’d frozen.

‘Excuse me?’

‘I don’t want a lap dance.’ He’d explained.

‘Sir, I think you might be confused-’

‘I’m not. Hear me out.’

She placed her hands on his shoulders, sitting back on thighs.

‘I’m listening.’

‘I’m opening a club…’

He paused at the disgusted look on her face.

‘What’s wrong?’

‘I’m not a fucking prostitute!’

Fuck.

‘No, no, no that is NOT what I’m trying to say.’

She leaned back further, crossing her arms across her chest.

He reached for his jacket where he’d sat it down next to him, holding it up and slowly wrapping it around her shoulders.

Skeptically, she pushed her arms through the sleeves.

‘What’s your name?’ He asked softly.

‘Jane.’

‘You can get off, Jane. I don’t want a lap dance.’

Slowly, she slid off his him, looking down at his lap, both surprised and relieved at his lack of erection.

She plopped down on the booth next to him.

‘What kind of club?’ she asked.

‘Just your average club, I suppose. Drinks, music, the usual.’

‘Right… so why me? There are four gorgeous girls out there that-’

He Tian shook his head.

‘I want you.’

‘But why?’ She pressed.

He smiled.

‘Are you happy here, Jane?’

‘Yes.’ She answered immediately.

He Tian raised his eyebrows.

‘Maybe not.’ She conceded.

Popular opinion seems to be that dancers all hate their lives and do it out of desperation, but He Tian had met many men and women talented, proud, and happy with their chosen profession. 

Hell, he’d met more happy dancers than most other professions. 

But, like literally everything, it wasn’t for everyone. 

‘I need someone to help me.’ He told her.

‘I don’t know anything about clubs, dude.’

‘I can teach you.’

‘Tell me why.’ she demanded.

He Tian searched for the right words to say as she wrapped herself in his favorite sweatshirt.

‘Honestly, I’m not entirely sure.’

She stared at him dubiously.

He had nothing else to say.

‘What would I be doing at this club?’

‘I need a bartender.’

‘I’ve never done that before.’

‘I can teach you.’

‘Just tell me why!’ She was getting frustrated.

‘You just used the pole as an air guitar.’

‘Is that part of the interviewing process?’

‘It is now.’

She suppressed a smile.

‘How much do you make right now?’ he asked.

‘Seven bucks an hour. Plus tips.’

‘I’ll pay you twelve plus any tips you make. That’s all I can afford right now.’

She tried to hide her shock.

‘Is that what you pay all your employees?’

‘I don’t have any employees yet.’

‘How do I know I can trust you?’

‘You don’t.’

Jane played with the zipper on the sweatshirt.

‘I’ll think about it.’

He Tian stood, pulling his wallet from his pocket, writing his phone number on the back of a receipt and handing her all the cash in his wallet.

She accepted the cash and paper, standing to remove the jacket.

‘Keep it. It looks  much better on you.’

He Tian smiled, leaving her alone in the small room.

-

Three days later, she slept on He Tian’s couch.

-

One week later she used a paint roller as a microphone as he painted the walls black.

-

Two weeks later she helped pick out the bar stools and tables.

-

Three weeks later she stocked the newly installed bar as He Tian used an unopened bottle of vodka to serenade her.

-

One month later she sat his friends at the bar and made them sample drinks.

-

Thirty-two days later they stood hand in hand as a line formed for their grand opening.

-

Thirty-eight days later, she stood behind the bar, serving drinks as He Tian watched with a smile.

-

Forty-six days later, He Tian gently turned down her advances and she deeply upset him by accusing him of being racist.

Seventy-three days later He Tian watched a charming young man ask her on a date.

Ninety-seven days later she came to work with a black eye.

Ninety-eight days later she cleaned aforementioned young man’s blood off his knuckles and provided him with an alibi.

One hundred and forty days later she was thrown a surprise birthday party complete with bright blue, fruity cocktails He Tian had designed just for her.

‘Janie’ is still a drink you can order at The Wolf.

Three hundred and sixty-five days later, they celebrated their first year with the unveiling of a covered, heated, patio.

Four hundred and eighty-seven later, He Tian handed her the keys to her first car after giving a speech about he couldn’t have dreamed of getting this far without her.

Eight hundred and sixty-three days later she caught the first glimpse of genuine sadness she’d seen on his face as his two best friends enjoyed the enormous party celebrating their tenth anniversary.

One thousand, two hundred, and twenty-eight days later, he disappeared with nothing but a text.

‘J, hold down the fort, I’ll be back soon.’

One thousand, two hundred, and thirty-five days later, she stood in front of the person who had finally gotten under his skin and smiled.

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: John Watson is bisexual and it desperately needs to be canonized. It's not even speculative; ignoring the fact BBC Sherlock has gone to great lengths to demonstrate his dedication, adoration and - yes- love, in regards to Sherlock, ignoring the fact they went as far as to introduce John's ex - Sholto -, there is no denying the queer subtext of the ACD canon. Holmes and Watson were in a romantic relationship in the source material, eventually retiring together. Sherlock is demonstrated as having absolutely 0 interest in women while John is interested in women, though it seems to be in equal in measure to his interest in men. Obviously, in 1887, it was impossible to canonize a queer relationship without fear of retribution but, thankfully, that isn't something Moftiss have to worry about. Given the writing, the acting choices made by Ben C and Martin Freeman, everything about the show down to costumes and lighting and how it's shot, we know that BBC Sherlock's own John Watson is a bisexual man and it needs to be said in so many words.

The All-Male Photo Op Isn’t a Gaffe. It’s a Strategy.
Republicans know what those images look like and who they appeal to.
By Jill Filipovic

President Trump ran a campaign of aggrieved masculinity, appealing to men who felt their rightful place in society has been taken from them by a stream of immigrants stealing their jobs, women who don’t need husbands to support them, and members of minority groups who don’t work as hard but still get special treatment.

Mr. Trump oozes male entitlement, from his brash insistence that he’s the best at everything despite knowing very little about anything to his history of crass sexism. Liberal political analysts, and even some conservative ones, assumed that would hurt him in a more feminist world. With women, it did, though not as much as people might have expected. It didn’t hurt him with men, though — Mr. Trump won them with the biggest gender gap since the advent of exit polling. That he was running against Hillary Clinton, the quintessential Hermione outsmarting the boys in class, brought this white masculinity message into sharper relief: Trump supporters didn’t just oppose Mrs. Clinton, they hated her with unchecked phallic rage, wearing “Trump That Bitch” T-shirts.

Mr. Trump promised he would make America great again, a slogan that included the implicit pledge to return white men to their place of historic supremacy. And that is precisely what these photos show.

I am a bisexual man who has struggled under the weight of expectations of being the kind of man I despise and your blog has been such a wonderful help in so many ways. I hope you don't mind me following your blog. I have been thinking of starting a blog which could help men unlearn what patriarchy teaches them and live with decency but I am not sure how to go about it. I would really appreciate it if you could give me some advice.

#LAVENDER sisterhood answer:

I applaud you in your goals BUT men don’t think anything a woman says has any validity, so any answers I give you won’t work.    

We do need men to confront men, but then why are you looking at us to solve a problem about being male.  

Your already inside that whole patriarchy.  Men have studied and been experts about everything even our own female bodies since the beginning of time. 

If we/women knew how to beat patriarchy we wouldn’t have a incestuous sexual predator as our asshole in chief. 

I do know this … it take tons of emotional energy for every inch of progress.  They will stone-wall and crazy making an insignificant issue to death.  Everything is a competition.  

Women don’t teach men to swallow their feelings, except misogynistic ones.   Masculinity is narcissistic.  So every time I tell him to be less narcissistic; he thinks I emasculating him.  “I’m not a sissy.”

You need to no longer just sit silently on the sidelines and actually put your own butt on the line.   You men created it and pass it down and it will take you men to stop praising and teaching it.  I find calling it toxic masculinity is better than misogyny or patriarchy when dealing with men.

Read all my materials as a starter for your quest.  I applaud you for trying to understand from a female perspective the problems as long as you never add your opinion.  Your not a female rape victim.  Your intentions may be good but until you’ve had years at it - 

So please do all this, but you must stick your neck out and lose the fear of being called a sissy and then come back to us and give us the answers.

» warning: smut & noona kink (& femdom)

Jungkook knew he was in trouble straight from the moment he trudged from his room with his eyes fixated on the floor. His leg shook nervously and his fingers were tapping on his thigh because at the back of his mind there was a mixture of fear and need. Pure need, to any extremes. He could hear you shuffling around in his room now, but he was desperate for you to just come out already.

He wasn’t a bad boy, especially not for his noona; sometimes Jungkook just liked to misbehave in the hopes it would leave him with red marks on his thighs and pleas leaving his lips. The little knew how to get what he wanted. Sometimes he’d like to just do as he was told – shake that man’s hand, wear his suit and tie, stop drinking soda and exchange it for some wine – so that you’d reward him later. Sometimes he’d just like the way you punished him.

“Jungkookie—? Would you come here for a second?”

BTS Reaction to: The Public & Media Finding Out They’re Dating A Man

exo reaction; here

Jin: w the support of his members, he doesn’t let the hate bother him. he stays positive, showing his funny, kind self without worry of what ppl will think. he even starts openly talking about the relationship, but is still private & courteous about it. he wants to show that 2 men dating isn’t abnormal but that doesn’t mean he will reveal personal issues. those stay between him & his s/o

Originally posted by jeonjam

Suga: fans already had a feeling that gender didn’t matter to him, considering that interview in japan & his famous line: “whether it be men or women, my flexible tongue movements will send them to Hong Kong.” so there isn’t much shock about his reveal. & the hate doesn’t affect yoongi at all. if his bf is upset, he reassures him that; “you’re dating the genius min yoongi. you’ve already got everything you need in life. why are you listening to the bull?”

Originally posted by bangtannoonas

J-Hope: internally, is very upset. but he tries to play it off w his bright personality & sense of humour. he doesn’t want the boys or the fans to know how much it’s affecting him. but everyone can tell; his smile isn’t as bright as it once was.

he starts to rely heavily on the guys & his bf, which unintentionally comes across as the cutest thing ever. the fans love seeing their “hope” look so lovingly at someone, no matter what gender they are. they show their support, which picks hobi up from the dark place. and as time moves on, he learns to deal w the hate, focusing only on the love.

and he works hard to raise awareness about the discrimination lgbtq ppl face, becoming the shining light of the movement

Rap Monster: was revealed as a liar. he’s still a pervert, of course, & his laptop has too many viruses to count. but not in the hetero way he had been leading ppl to believe. the media is shocked & many army’s are upset that he hadn’t been honest w them. but understanding too. this acceptance leads namjoon to being 100% honest from then on, about his relationship and his feelings towards men.

he’d always been an avid supporter of gay rights but now he becomes the face of the movement, campaigning for equal rights as the same intelligent, pervy leader he always was. except this time, he wasn’t hiding a part of himself

Jimin: fangirls are crushed, fanboys are elated, & many are unsurprised. he’s never showed much interest in girls, only to boys *cough* jungkook *cough.* jimin shows that dating another man isn’t wrong. he changes the views of many against gay rights in s. korea, by remaining the squishy, kind prince he always was. & this alone disproves the homophobes left. how can men loving men be wrong when jimin is the softest boy to walk the earth, huh?

V: answers all q’s openly & honestly as long as they’re not invasive or rude. he’s not afraid to be who he is, he’s the “alien” of bts, after all. he’s always been “different.” so this isn’t life shattering or anything like that to him. if anything, he feels relieved; “we can finally go strawberry picking & not pretend to be “just friends”. isn’t that great?” he says, beaming at his bf

Originally posted by jeonbase

Jungkook: the news went through different phases. at first, there was outrage. and he felt ashamed & embarrassed. but as the shock wore off, support for his sexuality grew. and somehow along the way, he became meme ambassador of the lgbtq community worldwide & he couldn’t possibly ask for anything more

Three years ago, Oscar Isaac was an obscure actor in his mid-30s who didn’t seem to be going anywhere very fast. Small parts in films like Che, Robin Hood and Madonna’s disastrous Wallis Simpson biopic W.E. hadn’t attracted much notice, and he was still auditioning for theatre plays and TV shows when the Coen brothers asked him to try out for their 2013 film Inside Llewyn Davis.

A wry drama set in 1960s Greenwich Village and telling the story of a struggling folk musician, it was a role tailor-made for Issac, who’s a musician himself and still regularly performs. He got the part, was nominated for a Golden Globe and suddenly every casting agent in Hollywood was interested in him.

anonymous asked:

A real feminist knows that men can be victims of rape and abuse as well as women. Don't generalize an entire movement from a few comments on a manga site

Honestly, you just waste my time by sending irrelevant asks like this just because you feel the need to defend a ‘movement’ and tell me what to do or don’t. Why do I have to break down things for you? Can’t you do it yourself?

Firstly, I specifically stated my post is not about feminism but feminists usually have the habit of making everything about feminism so this is expected.
Second, when I say PEOPLE can’t comprehend the concept of a female rapist, I mean PEOPLE, including men/non-feminists. Are you saying only feminists are people?!! And by saying I am generalizing this movement based on the comments on one manga site (which is not even what I said) you’re implying all the readers and anyone who commented there is a feminist?
Third, when I mentioned feminists and equality, I did say MOST and not ALL so I didn’t even generalize anything. But I do say most because 90% of feminists i’ve met and seen (so many by the way) basically don’t give a fuck about men and continuously disrespect them. That’s even like their motto and that’s far from equality and closer to misandry. That’s what I meant. Then again I didn’t generalize. 

You can call yourself a real feminist but I bet the woman who despises men and believes they have no rights also calls herself a real feminist.
