i can't find a credible source for this

anonymous asked:

Can you post credible sources that says Emma Watson criticized Bey on her approach to being a feminist? I'm doing some googling and I can't find any. What I found out was that Twitter blew up and created that tension. I'm just curious. Cos I don't think Watson slut shamed Beyoncé...

“As I was watching [Beyoncé’s visual album] I felt very conflicted, I felt her message felt very conflicted in the sense that on the one hand she is putting herself in a category of a feminist, but then the camera, it felt very male, such a male voyeuristic experience of her.” (x)

Because apparently women can only express sexuality if it is for men. 

And that’s not the first time she’s ever said something like that. I stopped liking Emma Watson in like 2009 because she went on some bullshit rant about Kristen Stewart “selling sex” in twilight and then she said this bullshit in 2011

“I’d never go out in a mini-skirt. It’s nothing to do with protecting the Hermione image. I wouldn’t do that. Personally, I don’t actually think it’s even that sexy. What’s sexy about saying, ‘I’m here with my boobs out and a short skirt, have a look at everything I’ve got?’My idea of sexy is that less is more. The less you reveal the more people can wonder.” (x)

She slut shames, she criticizes women for being sexual, and she continually tries to drill it into women’s heads that they need to dress modestly in order to be respectable. And that mindset contributes to rape culture, and its gross.

Hey, all the references to that horse post today have got me thinking about a question I've had for a while but had trouble finding credible research on: are spurs, in particular Western spurs, ethical? What separates ethical spur use from abusive? I've asked around but haven't gotten a conclusive answer, if you have any good sources for this I'd love to hear them! Thanks! Also, I'm on mobile so I can't see the question tax or FAQ, if I missed something because of that I'm sorry.

I need to preface this by reminding you that I am not a ‘horsey’ person in any way. I do not ride them, I do not work with them, and I no longer want to. I’m happy to consider them in an academically interesting sense, and admire them from afar.

In short I had Noped On Out of horses several years ago.

I assume the image above is what you mean by a ‘Western Spur’, where the end that’s used to touch the horse has a spinning component (rowel).

Horses have nerve endings closer to the surface of the skin than we humans do. What this means is that horse skin is most likely at least as sensitive, if not more so, than our own.

If a spur like this can hurt you then it can inflict pain on the horse.

I’m not the right person to discuss whether the use of Western spurs are ethical or not, but if a piece of equipment could cause pain then it could be abusive.

You would have to consider how these spurs were used in training, and whether the user had both a specific need for them and a sound understanding of animal training.

So I don’t have a conclusive answer for you either, but hopefully something to think about. You never know, an equine vet might add some commentary.

i can't find any credible source for Darren Wilson being paid half a mil for his interview also didn't Julie Townsend say "We do not pay for interviews, and we did not pay for this interview. Period. "

I haven’t seen any source that confirms he was paid for that interview.

I don't smoke weed, and I think it's kinda gross, but I try not to judge. But for the life of me, I've tried asking and looking, and nobody can provide an actual, credible source for the whole "weed smoke is bad for your pets" thing. It's wicked stupid and scummy, but I really can't find actual study or evidence for it being harmful for their health. I've known many potheads with dogs that are very healthy(vets words, not mine or the owners) and live into their teens. Can I just get some data!?

its scummy and disgusting, and it’s fucking toxic to cats and dogs. don’t fucking blow smoke in your pets face. don’t smoke with them in the room. show some self control. i don’t care if you smoke weed but for fucks sake don’t get your animals, the creatures you’re supposed to TAKE CARE OF, involved in your habits.
