I know I have a few people that follow me because of my political discussions, but you should know I also blog and reblog things for fun. I'm into fandom; it's part of my life. Don't be surprised if you see stuff about Disney, or kittens, or even my own artwork. Sometimes, I need to not be so serious.

Anti-woman website predicts more Elliott Rogers if society doesn’t provide them with sex →

Admitting that he was once “no different than Rodger,”  Roosh continued, “Seven people are dead because society has decided that shy and awkward men like Elliot Rodger do not deserve a girlfriend and that there is absolutely no way to improve his loneliness and loserdom through learning game or any other social behavior. At the same time men like him are ostracized, there is no legal means for him to solicit prostitution (in California) to release his biological and very pressing urge for fornication.”

"I had to sift through TONS of sand to find a jewel!" …Aladdin, that’s terrible. (Aladdin might be an asshole, Part 8)

No seriously, on multiple levels that is the wrong way to alleviate her concerns. You two are dating now. You’re engaged. You had previous relationships. They are all obviously over. 

Jasmine had NO human friends before she met Aladdin. So it might be understandable that she’d be surprised and might even think to feel jealous initially because SHE had no time for previous relationships. 

I think what bugs me is it falls under all that “competition” garbage that girls and women have heaped on them day in and day out. Other women are competition for getting and keeping your man. This is different from what we saw in the last episode, where a villain was coming to take Jasmine away. There was no question of her affections wavering; she had no agency in that whatsoever. She was just the damsel in distress. It was about someone coming to take Aladdin’s girlfriend and doing things with Aladdin’s girlfriend that only Aladdin should be doing. 

But the other woman? That could turn Aladdin’s head.

No, what’s alarming here, to me, is that Aladdin had previous relationships and apparently respects all of those women/girls so little that the first thing he thinks to do is talk shit about them so that Jasmine won’t feel threatened. 

Aladdin might be an asshole. 

Lots of similar talk on my dash today, so remembering this I decided it was worth another reblog.

Please don’t call yourself a feminist if you approve of BDSM.

provocatoria:

ihaveabsolutelynoidea:

cynically-colorblind:

It’s one of the most misogynist things out there.

dictating how a woman chooses to express herself sexually is misogynistic

it’s also misogynistic to assume that all women undertake a sub position 

it’s also heterosexist to assume that all bdsm is heterosexual

And so does citizenship, if that’s true. So any uterus-bearer that hops the border and gets knocked up on American soil automatically has an American citizen in their body. These people might even have one in their bodies even before that, if they go to Arizona!

A screen shot from the incredible feministing community article Open Letter to Representative Trent Franks: What Caring About Women and Babies Really Looks Like by Bria Murray, which you can read right here on feministing. 

This is something that needs more sharing, most definitely.

KNOW WHAT MAKES EVEN MORE MISOGYNISTS, OVERLY SENSITIVE GIRLS COMPLAINING ABOUT EVERY SINGLE THING A GUY SAYS THAT DISPLEASES THEM.

kuntakong:

C’mon learn context, humor, and what real misogyny is. Just because you dont find something offensive doesnt mean its time for you to raise the war flag and complain about inequality. That is just as bad as trying to ban books, movies, music, etc just because it doesnt fit to ur small opinion of what u find acceptable. just like some kind of religious or political zealot.
 
plus on top of it Ur just victimization yourself and Reenforcing these “stereotypes” against you. If someone is actually trying to belittle you because of ur gender. brush it off ur shoulder, because u getting all huffy about it is exactly what they want, think dont act…

OH! And ladies really look at yourself and ur behavior.

 

Bet you’ll take that out of context too.

Telling people who are victimized by privileged persons — whether through action, media, off-color jokes, imagery — to simply “brush it off” is a weak attempt to disregard their feelings of victimization and marginalization.

Good job telling victims of misogyny that it’s up to them to react in an acceptable manner rather than telling misogynists that their behavior is what needs to change.
