Bless your heart Joseph Fink.
hahahhah this is gold.
typical person with no taste form
I’ve heard of some tattooists refusing to do the feather-turning-into-flying-birds-on-the-shoulderblade
this upset me, because when I was a kid I was obsessed with maritime stuff and wanted an anchor tattoo BECAUSE OLD FASHIONED SAILING IS AWESOME but nope THEY HAD TO RUIN IT FOR ME
Yea, the dream catcher one needs to go for obvious reasons, other than that why do males need to mock women and their tattoo choices? Eons ago in ancient Western European tribes, similar tattoos amongst groups was a distinguishing mark that unified people. Perhaps the males hate for women getting similar tattoos is some vestigial hate left over from christian colonization that absolutely hated women and was very threatened by the power women had when women band together. ^^^This crap reinforces my need to only seek women tattoo artists, because fuck that white boy noise.
this right here, this comment right here pisses me the fuck off.
you’re in your every right to like one company more than the other but cite “better women” as your reason is not only insulting to the amazing, wonderful female characters DC has created but also hailing marvel’s female characters for all the wrong reason.
If you said your reason for liking one company more than the other is because Marvel treats its female characters better or is starting to, i would completely agree with you and probably have a discussion.
BUT THIS. THIS IS NOT OKAY
There’s also the fact that it goes against every notion of feminism ever.
"Better Women" is reducing a whole group of women to one broad gesture, and using it to degrade another group of women.
No woman is better than another, and DC’s women certainly aren’t terrible. They’re amazing. And so are Marvel’s; all women are.
DC treats it’s women like shit. That’s not their fault, and it doesn’t make them less than.
Here’s the thing. I knew this was coming.
Every time a Jennifer Lawrence or Anne Hathaway challenges an interviewer’s question on the basis of sexism/feminism – asking why their male counterpart got the “good” question about his work and she got the question about her outfit and workout routine we come a little bit closer. We do a tiny bit better.
Moments like these are praised, especially on Tumblr. Gifset after gifset of JLaw or Anne Hathaway makes its way across my dash with thousands, sometimes hundreds of thousands of notes, praising the actresses for rejecting the systematic sexism thrown their way in interviews or speaking out or being vocal for (white) feminism.
Yet when Nicole Beharie does it, we get a soundbite turned gifset stripped of its context, spun around, and flipped on its head to paint Beharie, Fox’s breakout star, and Black America’s latest hero, as some fronting, demeaning, sexist, spewing divisive, anti-feminist logic with a misogynistic undercurrent.
HUH! Well will you look at that! It’s the Miley Cyrus twerking debacle all over again. As I scroll through the “Nicole Beharie” tag I’ve tracked on tumblr I find myself taking a deep cleansing breath to rid myself of the frustration that’s come over me, and realize the smell of sexism and feel of racism permeating my lungs is all too familiar. And expected.
Beharie’s comment about preferring Marvel over DC because they have better women, wasn’t “reducing a whole group of women to one broad gesture, and using it to degrade another group of women.” On the contrary, she was praising Marvel for it’s better treatment, visibility, and writing of their women/female characters – thereby declaring her preference for Marvel’s story telling. The darnest thing is that somehow when I watched this interview, I squealed in a total fangirl moment that consisted of a gasp & “me toooo.” Y’know…because I got it!
Dear white feminists who don’t know the true meaning of intersectionality, take your puppet strings and weak attempts elsewhere.
*Defaulters refers to the default gender, sexual orientation, (& in this article in particular) race, etc. here in America. I seriously shouldn’t need to spell it out any more than that. :O)
A Voice For Men, one of the most prominent men’s rights websites out there, advocates for women who are being sexually harassed to “envision the person talking to [them] as human” and to thank them.
The new civil rights movement has truly arrived.
they misspelled the word “fuck”
|me most of the time:||people are okay, I guess. like no one is 100% bad.|
|me after reading the comments section in any article, ever:||this world can only be cleansed with fire.|
'uwu culture' aka 'oh my god its a fucking emoticon how the FUCK did you assholes manage to ruin this for everyone I am in literal awe right now good fucking job'
This photo always cheers me up a bit. It’s a front-page article from 1955 about Christine Jorgensen, one of the first women to have gender-affirming surgery.
Since the text is a bit small and I couldn’t find a larger copy, here’s what the small blurb says:
A World of a Difference
George W. Jorgensen, Jr., son of a Bronx carpenter, served in the Army for two years and was given honorable discharge in 1946. Now George is no more. After six operations, Jorgensen’s sex has been changed and today she is a striking woman, working as a photographer in Denmark. Parents were informed of the big change in a letter Christine (that’s her new name) sent to them recently.
This article is 58 years old, and it’s more respectful of Christine’s pronoun and name than some publications are today. It makes me happy to see a newspaper be respectful of a trans person.
YES BECAUSE WE ARE PEOPLE TOO, imagine that.
Of course a trans man would find this “respectful”, and then conflate his transgender identity with trans women’s oppression.
This article is not respectful. It capitalizes on a transition narrative, refusing to use any female/feminine markers of gender until they describe in great detail the ~surgeries~ she’s had (multiple, mind you! because one isn’t enough, or something like that).
This article is not respectful. It’s sexualizing, dehumanizing, and at the exact same level of BS that is written TODAY in newspapers.
I wish i actually wore the fashion taste i have
