open your eyes

About the new anti-feminist trend, and the tumblr of women against feminism: open your eyes. There’s more world beyond the perfect boyfriend you may have found. There’s many women going through rough times. Perhaps you do not share the views of some feminists who go a bit over the top, but feminism at its base is about fighting to protect those women who are today defenseless in a chauvinist and male-centered society. 

“No necesito feminismo porque mi novio me lo dijo”.

Sobre la nueva tendencia anti-feminista, y el tumblr de mujeres contra el feminismo. A ustedes, mujeres contra el feminismo, abran los ojos: hay mucho mundo más allá del novio perfecto que pudieron haberse conseguido. Hay muchas mujeres pasándola muy mal. Tal vez no compartas algunas perspectivas de algunas feministas que se pasan de la raya, pero en el fondo, el feminismo lucha por proteger a esas mujeres que hoy se encuentran desprotegidas ante una sociedad chauvinista y machista.

FACT: Many people whose behavior is perceived as aggressive, don’t know their behavior is perceived as aggressive (Valk, 2014). This is a classic example of lacking self awareness.
Antis: “Gruvia is 99% comedy. Their relationship is a joke.”

I’m pretty sure this is way more than 1% of their relationship, and if you didn’t notice NONE of these panels are comedic or meant to be taken that way. NONE of these panels show Juvia being a “stalker” or Gray being “bothered” by her. None. They show growth, progression, and development. From cute moments, to natural, to serious ones. And there is still plenty more to come. The pairing started at rock bottom, but then bloomed into something beautiful: two people that share mutual romantic feelings. Anyone with half a brain can see Mashima is not glorifying something “unhealthy” in his manga. And if you can’t see it, then congrats, you failed to understand a manga aimed at 12 year olds. 

The problem with anti Gruvia is they take the comedy way too seriously (that’s not meant to) and disregard the meaningful moments like they are insignificant. They think comedy outweighs the serious stuff and make up excuses, which is hilarious. Like have you ever read a manga before?
