Children, Dad, and Facts: dare-i-say-asexual Can we please be the generation that stops putting up with the family child molester? The grown uncle who dates teenage girls, the husband who makes uncomfortable comments about young women's clothing, or the cousin who raises red flags with their behavior towards children but no one wants to talk about all need to go Children, especially young women, are expected to "keep the family together" by not making a fuss over incredibly traumatic behavior Children don't deserve to suffer trauma for adults' feelings of togetherness. They're more worthy of protection than predators. A healthy family is not built on the backs of abuse survivors expected to live their lives in silence without justice, support, or protection baamilk * to-Price ladyfatmouse We are that's why a lot of the generations before us don't like us clarknokent Facts, as call them out on their shit soon as we find out. Or let it be known that we not going to stuff they're gonna be at yourunclesatan one other thing don't limit your vigilance to men. female abusers almost never get caught, reported, or even spoken of. i never got help because everybody assumed that a mother was incapable of sexually abusing her own kids. nobody was looking out for me or my brothers and if they had been, they would have automatically suspected my dad who never lifted a finger to harm us. the nurturing gentle woman stereotype/gender role held in place by sexism allows abusers to get away with everything - don't buy into it and don't assume that women can't be abusers too root out every abuser in your family, even if they 're women.

Energy, Facts, and Friends: Care to debate abortion? factori0 kiwianaroha prochoice-or-gtfo motherbychoice Nah Mood This reminds me of a party I went to last year. I was standing with some friends, chatting, and someone said something that indirectly implied that sexism exists. Some trivial recounting of the basic facts of daily life for most women. Something so mild, so uncontroversial, so mundane that I don't even remember what it was Suddenly, this man standing on the outskirts of our conversational circle piped up with "actually, I think men are more discriminated against than women these days." All conversation died l turned to look at him and he had this smug, insufferable grin on his face relishing this moment, expecting us to waste our time and energy refuting this ridiculous thing he had just said The Devil's Advocate was among us And, in my mind, I saw the next 15+ minutes playing out. The parade of facts and statistics in a vain attempt to defend ourselves, our gender, and to prove that misogyny is real. The glib, snide denials from some shithead who is getting off on our pain and frustration. The Gish Gallop of bullshit that would take a whole evening to properly dismantle. It was depressing and overwhelming. I hated it. I had to kill it before it began So looked him dead in the eye and I said "OK," shrugged, and just walked away Nothing I have ever said to another human being has ever been so crushing As I walked away, I watched the smug grin vanish and confusion and anxiety set in. The rest of the group turned their backs to him and carried on as if he had never spoken - as if he was invisible. He was still staring at me when walked over to another friend and told her what he had said. I pointed him out for her and made direct eye contact with him while we both laughed tl;dr: Don't feed the troll. Let it perish, cold and hungry, in the wasteland of your indifference. It is weak and you are strong. Live your best life Trolls dont deserve your attention

Thanks to being berated by my parents for being ungrateful, and constantly having to jump through a million hoops to try to win some love I'm extremely emotionally needy, especially towards women I percieve as mothering figures. It's to the point where I'm pushing away a formerly close friend and mentor who had been extremely kind to me The worst thing is that through all this, my mom (and probably nearly everyone else) is going to say it's all my fault for not being "strong" or independent" enough. For example a few weeks ago I was stupid enough to tell my mom how I hated how her relatives coerced me so hard into staying in my major, even when my heart and brain were both begging to be allowed to run, when they probably couldn't even tell me what my degree was in, and this made me too scared to leave since l feared a trickle down punishment from her. She told me l "stayed in there for myself" and it was all on me since "it's not [herl style" to directly confront others (although I have witnessed this several times). I have to keep pretending everything is alright though it is getting harder every day. There's nobody I can talk to about this: after all, who would believe me? Anon has a bad childhood
Bad, Books, and Children: When people say these books are children's books, as if to demean them, I balk. These books dealt with themes that adults do not fully understand or wish to. It dealt with racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, prejudice, and general ignorance. These books taught us that it doesn't matter how you were raised, but at you get to choose to be kind, loyal, brave, and true. They taught us to be strong u nder the pressures of this world and to hold fast to what we know to be right. These books taught me so much, they changed me as a person. So just ause they're set against a fantastical backdrop with young protagonists does not mean that their value is any less real This First book Starts with the double murder of a pair of twenty-one year olds who e much missed and leaving their baby son a war orphan abusive conditions that would give Cinderella the horrors. Dealing with peers and teachers who are bulies. The fickleness of fame (from the darling of Gryffindor to the outcast.) The idea that there are things worth fighting and dying for, spoken by the child protagonist. Three children promptly acting on that willingness to sacrifice their lives, and two of them getting injured doing so Second book. The equivalent of racism with the pro-pureblood attitude by an eleven year old girl being groomed and then used by a charming, handsome older male. The imbalance of power and resultant abuse inherent in slavery. Fraud perpetuated by stealing something very intimate. Plot driven hird book: The equivalent of ableism with a decent, kind and competant adult being considered less than human because he has an illness that adversely affects his behaviour at certain times. A justice system that is the opposite of just. Promises of removing an abused child from the abusive environment can't always be kept. The innocent suffer while the guilty thrive. Fouth book: More fickleness of fame. The privileged mistreating and undermining the underprivileged because they can. A master punishing a slave for his own misjudgment, and the slave blaming herself. A sports tournament which involves mortal risk being cheered by spectators. A wonderful young man being murdered y because he was in the way. A young boy being tortured, humilated and nearly murdered. Fifth book: PTSD in the teenage protagonist. Severe depression in the protagonist's godfather, triggered by inherited mental health issues and being forced to stay in a house where abuse occured. A bigoted tyrant who lives to crush everyone under her heel, torturing a teenager for telling the truth in the name of the government (and trying to suck his soul out too). The discovery that your idols can feet of clay after all. An effort to save the life of someone dear and precious actually costing that very same life. The loss of a father-figure and the resultant guilt Sixth book: The idea that a soul can be broken beyond repair. Drugs with the potential for date rape are shown as having achieved exactly that in at least one case, resulting in a pregnancy. Well-meaning chauvinism trying to control the lo life of a young woman. Internalised prejuidce resulting in refusing the one you love out of lack of love but out of fear of tainting them. The mortality of those that seem powerful and larger than life Seventh book Bad situations can get worse, to the point where even the end up suffering and afraid. More internalised prejudice and feaf hysterical terror of ting those you love. Self-sacrifice and the loss of loved ones, EVERYWHE se who are bitter are often so with a reason.

Things often come full circle (war ending with the death of a dearly-loved pair of new parents and their orphaned baby son living with his dead mother's blood relative instead of his young godfather). Even if all is well' the world is still imperfect, because it's full of us brilliant imperfect humans.

People complained that he was playing a Jewish guy infiltrating the Klan in a historical Spike Lee movie, even though he isn’t Jewish, which is apparently Not Allowed. These are popular franchises.

Sometimes based on things that literally didn’t happen, like “being a better pilot than Han”. On a ship she had literally never seen before in her life until she could pilot it BETTER than someone who’s had it forever.That’s bullshit. On a ship she had literally never seen before in her life You mean the ship that she explicitly called “junk”? The one she says she advised against certain modifications for? The one owned by the Quarter Portion guy, who used to be her guardian, as we see in the flashback? How does Rey fly the ship better than Han? Please, I haven’t seen a single piece of evidence for this in over two and a half years, but it’s treated as gospel.  Heck, he didn’t even “have it forever”, he lost it years, maybe decades ago. Better than Han is less important than outflying two Ties on her first attempt. Only due to home ground advantage, vs. two fighters designed mainly for space combat with horrible aerodynamics, and even then, she got Finn’s turret shot. Also, she’s all-but-explicitly shown to be using The Force. The dialogue draws attention to the fact that she’s flying better than she expects. ‘somebody did a thing that is entirely understandable given the context of the prior movies and the actual text of the movie at hand. But for some reason I missed these obvious things so yarrr!’ No I fully accept the explanations for it. I still think it was poorly done and added to Rey’s perception as a Mary Sue who faces no real challenges and succeeds at everything. That there’s an explanation for what she’s doing and how she’s doing it doesn’t change that I and many people think she shouldn’t be doing it in the first place. So, shedloads of people apparently ignored or missed the clear on-screen evidence to complain about this aspect of the movie, but it’s still the movie’s fault that they’re wrong, even when they’re making claims which they could not have reasonably arrived at (EG Rey’s a better pilot than Han.), and the only possible explanation is “fandom misconceptions”? just because she succeeded (lived) doesn’t mean Rey herself experienced these things as ‘easy’. how many movies out there does the hero do something unexpectedly and benefit from the results? like maybe all of them? movies would be boring if characters are powerless the entire time until the exact one moment they need to win. they need to succeed and stumble a little bit along the way. little wins and little losses until the end. if she got her arm cut off, would that remove people’s mary sue label? Thing is, people ignore the actual struggles she went through just because they have a Narrative. She didn’t just beat Kylo, he knocked her out pretty much instantly, and then Fin bought her time, and then she temporarily forced Ben back (IIRC, the book says she tapped into the Dark Side). We don’t even know if he would’ve been able to win if he got up, or even if he could get up. And this was while Kylo was bleeding out from a high-powered weapon, which the movie takes pain to remind us of. But the fanbase acts like Rey apparently beat Ben with one hand tied behind her back, wearing a blindfold, while suffering from some hideous space-combination of Avian Flu and Ebola Zaire. I’m so glad I’m not crazy. I thought I was the only one in the more conservative camp that doesn’t agree that Rey is a Mary Sue. There is lots of in-text explanation for why she excels at certain things as well as the time honored “because the Force“ answer which has applied to a lot of characters besides her. And she absolutely does have struggles even if they are primarily in emotional conflict and wrestling with her untapped strength and insecurities about her origins. These are what make the character. Calling the whole character a Mary Sue because “she fight too good“ is kind of asinine. And don’t get me started on how they bitch about her beating Kylo and forget that he was mortally wounded at the time, and bitch about her knowing something about the Millennium Falcon and mechanical engineering despite the fact that she was A PROFESSIONAL JUNKER and the ship had been on her planet probably most of her life giving her plenty of time to explore it. But yeah pretending that only the minority actors/actresses get harrassed is bullshit. Rey is 100% a Mary Sue. No training yet managed to beat Kylo Ren, flew a ship across space despite no experience, etc. @rockyrz did you read literally one word from the post above you or are you just gonna keep shouting “she’s a Mary Sue!“ and ignore all evidence to the contrary?“Managed to beat Kylo Ren”BECAUSE HE WAS FUCKING MORTALLY WOUNDED.“flew a ship across space”BECAUSE SHE HAD JUST STATED SHE WAS A PILOT.Like seriously it’s fine if you don’t like the movie but you seem kind of dumb if you just straight up ignore the evidence even it’s right in front of your face so you can keep saying the same thing over and over.

Nearly half of all gamers are women and, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the number of women working in the industry rose from 8.7% in 2011-12 to 15% in 2015-16. But there is still a long way to go, and incidents like Gamergate-where female gamers and developers in the US were harassed and threatened for speaking out against sexism-give the industry a bad reputation. An exhibition at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) called Code Breakers: Women in Games aims to change that. Ten female programmers, producers, designers and directors from Australia and New Zealand are featured, and visitors can play their games, which range from big studio releases like Little Big Planet and Tricky Towers through to more experimental titles. As programmer Elissa Harris says in the exhibition, "One of the most important things for a child growing up is seeing people who look like them doing the things they want to be doing. More diversity behind the scenes also leads to more diversity in the games themselves. Protagonists in games used to be mainly men-now there is more variety, in culture and race, as well as gender. For example, Maru Nihoniho's Metio Interactive produces games with Mäori characters, and players can choose to play in English or Te Reo Mãori. And the good news is, Australia is ahead of the curve when it comes to being inclusive. Lisy Kane was the first female hire at League of Geeks in 2014 now the team is 35% women. "The video game industry has definitely identified the gender mbalance problem," she says. "They've accepted it and taken it on board and want to improve it."

They do</b>. And when they don’t do much to pleasure them, most of the time is because they are inexperienced. Women do have a problem with communicating their desire, nobody denies that it’s also society’s fault but if you don’t ask stuff you can’t get surprised you don’t get it and out there it’s full of men wanting to do things with respect and to make their girlfriends happy. </p> <p><b>Boys are WHOLESOME.

It’s a NSFW thread???? </b>It’s the space to talk about that. <b>Would you have the same reaction if in their matching thread women said they want their boyfriends to go down on them more?</b> Or if they said they’d like him to touch them in different zones? Would you have complained if women said it of their girlfriends? Then why shaming boys?</p> <p><b>Having needs both sexual and emotional is natural, the important is not force them on people who don’t feel like that and these men didn’t (which is why the thread exists in first place).</b></p> <p>Men have emotional needs too and pretending they don’t and buying into the “all men think about is sex” and “ah men are all rapey and dirty” is sexism, not only towards men but because it implies that women are purer than them which leads to the HolyMary kinda misoginy that denies women their need to physical pleasure.</p> <p><b>Also let’s stop pretending sex is inherently dirty and bad.</b> Sex is fun, as long as it’s consensual.</p> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="311" data-orig-width="700"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/9657710e406c7223d524f54197a13421/tumblr_inline_oxiglvhowd1tbrwut_540.png" data-orig-height="311" data-orig-width="700"/></figure><figure data-orig-height="54" data-orig-width="265"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/fa8598213ec371e859e21392a64f6176/tumblr_inline_oxiglvoMk61tbrwut_540.png" data-orig-height="54" data-orig-width="265"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="90" data-orig-width="842"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/60c9960fcc615e013e90115d37288118/tumblr_inline_oxiglzf6091tbrwut_540.png" data-orig-height="90" data-orig-width="842"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="123" data-orig-width="699"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/d07e757deaa7118a1812c887bf081736/tumblr_inline_oxiglzHXzS1tbrwut_540.png" data-orig-height="123" data-orig-width="699"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="181" data-orig-width="711"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/560f6955a16b13e61e58ed56255aa1f4/tumblr_inline_oxigm0wAiS1tbrwut_540.png" data-orig-height="181" data-orig-width="711"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="361" data-orig-width="730"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/90e1532b4527c226f06160c1785ac662/tumblr_inline_oxigm0DlVB1tbrwut_540.png" data-orig-height="361" data-orig-width="730"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="76" data-orig-width="501"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/6f7f2c2523a2f4f84f12c6d2ae6d80bc/tumblr_inline_oxigm1lnAK1tbrwut_540.png" data-orig-height="76" data-orig-width="501"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="422" data-orig-width="740"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/328cb50e82c6ca0440c22df66eaec499/tumblr_inline_oxigm1zgEd1tbrwut_540.png" data-orig-height="422" data-orig-width="740"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="92" data-orig-width="713"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/e6b2df9dde94b89512f02af2858aecba/tumblr_inline_oxigm2jXy91tbrwut_540.png" data-orig-height="92" data-orig-width="713"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="175" data-orig-width="688"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/fcbce9c56bf867edc1fa8dc6d2120b21/tumblr_inline_oxigm2QNPD1tbrwut_540.png" data-orig-height="175" data-orig-width="688"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="256" data-orig-width="342"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/2fb53eaa6373dc3c41223b59509317e6/tumblr_inline_oxigm32HMD1tbrwut_540.png" data-orig-height="256" data-orig-width="342"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="623"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/f795cda2fe335f7a4222e269b147f490/tumblr_inline_oxigm3Qs9M1tbrwut_540.png" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="623"/></figure><p>But yeah I agree with op, I did die opening it, OUT OF THE CUTENESS THAT SPILLED FROM IT.</p> </blockquote> <p>Ok yeah that was cute </p> </blockquote> <p>Aw I want this.</p> </blockquote> <p>posts with bad vibes being turned into more comfy things like this are why i still browse this site</p> </blockquote> <p>The cuteness of men is, as always, ignored and taken for granted.</p> </blockquote> <i>the cuteness of <br/><br/>men is as always ignored <br/><br/>and taken for granted </i><br/><hr><br/><small>^Haiku<sup>^bot<sup>^9. <sup>I detect haikus with 5-7-5 format. <sup>Sometimes I make mistakes.</sup></sup></sup></sup><br/><br/>I’m less annoying than Windows® 10 update notificiations ♥‿♥ | <a href="http://paypal.me/HaikuRobot/2">PayPal</a> | <a href="https://www.patreon.com/haikurobot">Patreon</a> </small> </blockquote>

Chris Hemsworth, Cute, and Instagram: It's my duty to bring you all the important Hemsworth news. And today, I have a big announcement. It's this photo of Chris Hemsworth's arm. And the rest of him too. And also his dog. instagram.com Now, you may be asking yourself, "Isn't this just a photo of Chris Hemsworth? How is this news?" To which I say, please turn your attention to exhibit A and exhibit B. Exhibit B Exhibit A Right about now you're probably asking, "Wait, someone got PAID to write this?!" To which I say, yes, yes I did. 70 And you might be tempted to ask, "Oh so it's okay to objectify men and not women?! Isn't this just reverse sexism?!" To which I say, NO THAT'S NOT A THING, learn some basic Gender Studies 101, and understand the systemic power imbalances inherent in the patriarchy that render men as subjects even when viewed through the female gaze, therefore making it literally impossible for them to be objectified, i.e. reduced to nothing more than sexual objects.

Bailey Jay, College, and Drive By: 2 hours ago 545 Likes Brazilian rights activist Marielle Franco assassinated in drive- by shooting Rio city councillor Marielle Franco was killed in a targeted shooting on Wednesday night. She was an outspoken critic of police violence and deploying the army into poor neighbourhoods of Rio MarielleFranco Rest in power! 💔🙏🏾 . Via The Root: "Marielle Franco, 38, a black politician from Rio de Janeiro, died fighting for the rights of women and favela dwellers. As a councilwoman from the Maré favela, she denounced the police brutality that favela residents, most of them black, regularly experienced. . On Wednesday around 9:20 p.m., armed men gunned the councilwoman down in her car in the center of Rio de Janeiro with nine shots—four to the head. Her driver, Anderson Pedro Gomes, also died. She had just left an event that she organized about black women’s empowerment. . Her death touched so many people that supporters organized vigils and protests in more than 20 cities across Brazil. Most of these protests were against the genocide of black people in Brazil. For Afro-Brazilians, Franco proved that a black person from a favela could be educated, have dignity and also fight against the social injustice that they suffer from every day. For women, she proved that they could overcome sexism and machismo in Brazil. But her death is hitting Afro-Brazilian women, who suffer the most from Brazil’s violent, racist and sexist society, the hardest. . “She died because she was a combative black woman,” said Lua Nascimento, an Afro-Brazilian college classmate of Franco’s who attended a protest on her behalf in Salvador, Brazil. “She was executed because she was a black favela dweller who fought against the murder of black favela dwellers. The genocide of the black population continues in this country. ” . Thousands of people gathered in front of Rio de Janeiro’s council chambers to pay homage to Franco, who was buried Thursday night. To show their digital support for her, Brazilians are changing their Facebook profile photos to those of Franco and using the hashtag MariellePresente, which translates to “Marielle is here.” . Amnesty International, the longtime leader of a campaign against the genocide of black people in Brazil, demanded that her death be rigorously investigated. With those nine shots, Franco became one more statistic in this genocide. Just over 50 percent of Brazil’s population of 200 million is black ... [Continued in comments]

We don’t need pink seats, we don’t need to put men in blue seats in the back of a bus. We’re all equals here, which should mean all of the seats are open to anyone. This is seriously stupid.</p> </blockquote> <p><b>Extreme</b>: seats reserved for women to give them some modicum of protection from sexual assault and rape.</p> <p><b>Not Extreme</b>: sexual assault and rape. </p> <p>Apparently.</p> <p>In what universe are women equal in India? </p> </blockquote> <p>Women in India are brutalized on public transport regularly, and there are several cases of gang rape that took place on buses that made worldwide news. This obviously isn’t addressing the structural problem of rape, but if it helps even one woman it’s worth it. Fuck those saying this is “sexist”. Maybe if those men didn’t rape then they wouldn’t have to have this.</p> </blockquote> <p>That guy is a fucking idiot. Does he really think that separating men and women is sexism against men? WHY? HOW?<br/></p> </blockquote> <p><b>Women</b>: Men have brutalized us for centuries and not even our public life is safe from violent rape and murder at their hands.</p> <p><b>Bus Company</b>: We’ll put a slight restriction on men to help you prevent that.</p> <p><b>Men</b>: That’s <i>unfair! </i>What about equality!</p> </blockquote> <p>The POINT IS THIS IS GOING TO SOLVE ANYTHING</p> <p>Youre a retard please get off tumblr </p> </blockquote> <p>So segregating bus seats was a big problem when it was done under Jim Crow, but a “slight restriction” when Indian officials do it by gender to protect women. </p> <p>Got it.</p> </blockquote> <p>If the men really want to gang rape a woman to death how will pink bus seats stop that? What’s stopping these horrible rapist from just crossing other and grabbing her? “Oh no she’s in the pink seats we can’t rape her” like really? teach you bus driver’s to give a shit, put guards on the buses or give women better ways to defined themselves but how will pink seats really help?<br/></p> </blockquote> <p>That’s my thing^ like I get that rape is a serious problem on Indian busses but I’m not sure how pink seats are going to deter rapists</p>
Drugs, Memes, and Music: The Black Eyed Peas Say Music Today Does Not Address Important lssues @balleralert The Black Eyed Peas Say Music Today Does Not Address Important Issues- Blogged By @tktrinidad ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It has been eight years since TheBlackEyedPeas released an album, but now they’re back with a new single called “Street Livin’” which focuses on social justice and change. The Black Eyed Peas have been very vocal in saying that music of today needs a message, especially with topics like racism and sexism being at the forefront. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ During an interview with Variety, the group talked about sexism in the music industry and how music currently lacks a sense of activism, especially surrounding the MeToo movement. Will.i.am said, “Music is probably … it does a really good job at diminishing the power of a woman. And that’s really sad. Especially Hip Hop, rock — sex, drugs and rock and roll. A woman is a resource in that sentence. It’s sad.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Taboo then went on to say that music doesn’t have a call to action anymore. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It’s sad that, in this day and age of music, we don’t have a huge support for activism as we used to.In the ’60s, everybody was trying to make a statement with their music. It seems like more athletes are making a statement, standing up for causes, than actually in the music industry.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are your thoughts?

They specifically took ads from 70 years ago. I don’t think anybody needs to see role reversals to be like “Gee, people were kind of sexist in the 40s!”</p><p>Also you literally can have an issue with sexist ads without making more sexist ads. This is not rocket science.</p> I want to make it clear that I’m not “offended“, I just think it’s another dumb pointless gesture that websites like BuzzFeed do to act like they’re participating in some sort of valiant fight against sexism. 90% of modern feminism is just bitching about stuff that happened decades ago and acting like it still matters because they want to stay relevant. How about an article where Buzzfeed shows how women are treated in Saudi Arabia. That might be a little more impactful to the cause.
