Remember when they used to say that gay marriage ruins the sanctity of the institution?
Petition to ban old men from writing books just because they don’t know how to use an iPhone
Petition to have the youth in this country to actually educate themselves instead of spitting out some bullshit they read on some shitty post on facebook that’s untrue, and continues to spread like wildfire.
In 2012, young adults set the record of completing both high school and college and are on course to become the most educated generation in American history. Maybe you should follow the example of ‘the youth in this country’ and do the same.
The thing I hate most about “not all men" guys, or men who are affronted by the idea that they are schrodinger’s rapist, is that they act like women enjoy feeling that men may be dangerous. As if it’s something to lord over men rather than a shitty part of existing as a woman.
I know good and well that most men are not going to harm me, rape me, or harass me. When talking to an individual man, I don’t generally think “he’s probably a rapist.” but since I don’t know if he is, it doesn’t matter. This is particularly true because I know that if I let my guard down (and I have) and something bad happens to me, I will be blamed for it (and I have been).
Then of course I feel silly - because I know that many men think I’m silly - for taking seemingly unnecessary precautions to protect my own safety. These men complain about the multitudes of women who, for some reason, seem to feel unsafe, but do absolutely nothing about the scores of men among them who make women feel unsafe and create a climate in which women cannot fully trust men.
Not to mention that it’s just all around shitty to think that not being trusted without reservations is comparable to feeling justifiably afraid for your safety and bodily autonomy.
stop calling it “slut-shaming”
stop labeling millions of women you don’t know “sluts” without their consent
no, i don’t care about context. i don’t care that you mean well
we don’t call anything else “[insert oppressive slur here]-shaming”
stop using slurs to categorically describe women and then calling it necessary activist language
"If the protagonist is queer, and the story doesn’t revolve around romance, then why is the protagonist queer in the first place if it’s largely irrelevant? I’m simply curious"
If the protagonist is straight, and the story doesn’t revolve around romance, then why is the protagonist straight in the first place if it’s largely irrelevant? I’m simply curious
Mark Harris is the best about constantly pointing out gender (and minority) discrimination in the language of film/TV criticism.
I think he is catting enough for two, maybe three cats.
Cat. It is a verb now. And you know exactly what it means. Thanks, internet.
