you need feminism

A thread about millennials and stories (sorry for all the typos I was fueled by too much emotion to type well)

Hey to all those people telling people “ it’s not so bad, just power through the cramps” when they're on their period because it’s not an excuse to miss school/work etc.!

I had bad cramps today, but I tried to “power through it” and went to class anyways, even though my grandmother had to drive me because I couldn’t walk to the bus.

I tried to “power through it” when I started to feel like I was going to throw up in the middle of my lecture, leaving to take a walk outside in the cold to try and clear my head, even though walking made my right side feel as though it was being ripped in two.

I tried to “power through it” when I started getting cold sweat all over my body, taking off my sweater and then putting it back on two seconds later because my body couldn’t decide if it was hot or cold.

 I tried to “power through it” when spots started to appear in my vision, and just kept walking towards the exit.

I tried to “power through it” when I started to dry heave, and started walking faster.

I tried to “power through it” when my ears started ringing and the spots took over my vision and I was so so hot but shivering and my side felt on fire and twisted into knots and stabbed all at once.

I tried to power through it to the point where I collapsed in the middle of my college hallway. A stranger brought me to Outreach Services, where I lay on the floor, vomiting, for an hour until somebody could pick me up and take me home.

The school paramedics told me that I had passed out because I put too much stress on my already taxed body. My body was taxed because of hormonal fluctuations and blood loss aka my period.

Nothing like this has ever happened to me before. In the past when I’ve had cramps like this, I’ve stayed in bed and eaten strawberries and watched MASH all day.

So don’t you DARE tell me that you should “power through the cramps and do it anyways”. Powering through made me pass out. Powering through made me have to be wheeled out of the school in a wheelchair because I couldn’t keep my balance to walk. Powering through made my grandmother with osteoporosis and a tendency to panic have to come pick me up from school and help me up the stairs and almost break her hip when I started to collapse backwards on the front steps. Powering through made my 13 year old brother have to supervise me while I took a bath because I was afraid I would pass out and drown (he was super sweet about it actually; we closed the curtain and he read me Voyage of the Dawn Treader). Powering through made my mother who works to support our family pretty much on her own have to take time off work to come home and make sure I was okay.

In conclusion; If someone feels crappy because of their period cramps, leave them alone. Don’t make them do things anyways, because you might make it worse. And definitely don’t make them feel bad for not wanting to do things because of cramps; that’s the reason I even got out of bed this morning. Be nice to people on their period. Possibly buy them chocolate or painkillers. Nut don’t make them do things when they have cramps, and definitely don’t tell them “it’s nothing, power through” because cramps? Cramps can be one of the worst things you could possibly imagine.

Seriously. Fuck you all.

Tired of seeing Hanzo (even his young version) being drawn with very feminine proportions and made to look smaller than McCree or something while McCree keeps his physique and character

If you feel the need to feminize a male character for a M/M pairing then I need you to reevaluate how you view gay men or any other mlm. Are you really valuing gay relationships or are you fetishizing them and trying to push and imitate heterosexual standards.

There’s nothing wrong with feminine men. And I fully support them. But it’s different and gross when you depict a male character more feminine than he actually is for a gay pairing

PS I see this shit happen to Genji and sometimes Jack Morrison too

You ever find it hilarious and transparent when some random says Barry’s obsessed with Iris and she deserves better than him and then in the same breath wants him with RandomWhiteGirl™️? (Notice they never ship him with Linda another WOC) Like you’re really going to play the Iris is too noble and good for the obsessive white boy card but not my fave white girl. If your opinion is that low of Barry then why would you want him with the woman you claim is your favorite character? She’d just be playing second best to the girl he’s “obsessed” with.

We Don't Need The Validation of Men
I'm not sure about you, but I'm tired of my voice being drowned out by men who essentially parrot whatever I say. I'm tired of my worth being calculated by m...

Men: You feminist are ALL lessbeans. How DARE you not allow me to make you uncomfortable with my sexually driven compliments. You gon be single the rest of your life!! 

**screams in fragile masculinity** 

Me: Is…is…that an insult?

There’s like………..nothing wrong with being a victim. Some things are beyond your control and fucked-up. Women are victimized. You’ve been victimized. That doesn’t make you less strong and worthwhile like….i hate this and some anti-feminist women eat this shit up like “yeah stop painting women as always being taken advantage of it makes us look weak and not self-sufficient” yeah here’s the thing women are always taken advantage of. It’s not a reflection on the women who are victims of the system. It’s a reflection on the perpetrators. I know nobody likes the idea that the bad things that happen to you are entirely beyond your control, but a lot of them are. It’s not insulting to women to say that a cruel, vicious, misogynist system is constantly breaking them down and undermining their efforts to dismantle it. One of the ways that system does that, by the way, is convincing you that victim is a terrible label and you don’t want it. Misogynists know that people don’t want to be seen as pathetic or doormats or whatever, so they use that to their advantage they play to this fucking faux-girl-power thing like “if you’re a strong empowered woman you don’t need feminism cause you’re not a victim” it’s just it’s horse shit
