There’s no such thing as “too soon” for Halloween!!

Specially if they come half price! That’s right, just 6€ and you can get your very own spooky chibi for Halloween! here’s how it works;

1. Choose a pose. There’s 6 poses, all shown above! remember to specify the gender, face expression of choice and other details (eye color, birth marks…)

2.Choose a costume. Here’s the costume list numbered as shown above;

  1. The clown from the ‘It’ movie remake.
  2. Freddy Krueger from the ‘Nightmare on elm street’ movie original.
  3. Thomas Sharpe ghost from the ‘Crimson Peak’ movie.
  4. ‘Can’t touch this’ cacti dress.

  6. Jack Skeleton from the ‘Nightmare before Christmas’ movie

3.Contact me. You can contact me via mail mangakasoldier@gmail.com or tumblr, but I prefer gmail as it is more comfortable to both read and write.

4.Payment. I only accept payment via paypal, once we’ve talked everything out I’ll send an invoice to the mail you contact me with (unless specified otherwise), once the payment is made I will start to draw :D

“the fact TERFs won’t date trans women because they see them as men is due transmisogyny and we have to callout cis lesbians who do this.”


True

“Also! Check this dating app for ace people! It let u choice your gender "male/female/trans!!” Also it allows you to ignore trans people if you find them gross, and trans fetichizers are welcome too!!!! Inst this great?“


You don’t have to love abortion. You can dislike it. Maybe it even makes you sad. The way you view abortion is up to you. If you don’t like abortion, you can advocate for proper sex education, access to birth control and other things that have been shown to lower unplanned pregnancies. You don’t have to like abortion.

But what you can’t do is disrespect somebody for having an abortion. You can’t take away that choice from women because you don’t like it. Your emotions are not somebody else’s responsibility. Your emotions aren’t more important than anyone else’s bodily autonomy. You don’t have to like abortion, but you have to respect other people’s rights and that includes the right to safe, accessible, abortion.

The LEGO Movie was my favorite movie of 2014, but it strikes me that the main character was male, because I feel like in our current culture, he HAD to be. The whole point of Emmett is that he’s the most boring average person in the world. It’s impossible to imagine a female character playing that role, because according to our pop culture, if she’s female she’s already SOMEthing, because she’s not male. The baseline is male. The average person is male.

You can see this all over but it’s weirdly prevalent in children’s entertainment. Why are almost all of the muppets dudes, except for Miss Piggy, who’s a parody of femininity? Why do all of the Despicable Me minions, genderless blobs, have boy names? I love the story (which I read on Wikipedia) that when the director of The Brave Little Toaster cast a woman to play the toaster, one of the guys on the crew was so mad he stormed out of the room. Because he thought the toaster was a man. A TOASTER. The character is a toaster.

I try to think about that when writing new characters— is there anything inherently gendered about what this character is doing? Or is it a toaster?

Good news! Oregon just EXPANDED abortion access, taking a firm stand against Trump’s extreme agenda: http://bit.ly/2i79EmD 

“The measure, called the Reproductive Health Equity Act, requires health insurers to provide birth control and abortions without charging a co-pay, and also allocates state funds to provide reproductive health care to non-citizens unable to access Medicaid.

The Pro-Choice Coalition of Oregon, which helped write the law, said that the new legislation will not only increase access to abortion, but also birth control and postpartum care for low-income women. It also adds that this is the first legislation in the States to comprehensively address systemic barriers to reproductive health care.

Men Shout, and Women Scream—at Least in Fiction
A statistical analysis shows a clear gender divide in the words that novelists use to describe their characters
By Ben Blatt

Our fictional universe also turns out to contain words that male authors use to describe female characters but which a woman would rarely use to describe herself or another woman. These words seem to highlight the biggest differences in how male and female authors view the world.

One key word here: interrupted. In each of our three categories (classics, popular fiction and literary fiction), male writers are at least 75% more likely to have their female characters interrupt than their male ones. Meanwhile, female authors didn’t discernibly differ in the frequency with which they have their characters of both genders interrupt.

Similarly, female authors use sob at about the same rate for their male and female characters—but male writers hardly ever use it to describe their own male characters. Male authors seem, consciously or not, to hold that if “real men don’t cry,” then “fictional men don’t sob.”

It’s pathetic and fucked up that I had to make an entirely new blog and begin to immerse myself fully in the radfem community before I could even freely talk about abortion as being a women’s issue. Before this I’d have to listen to some condescending dribble about how ~people of all genders~ can get pregnant/need abortions.
Liberal feminism erases women from their own struggles, and we deserve far, far better than that.

It’s the logic behind a bill that would require men to approve their partners’ abortions.
