"Leave the saving of the world to the men?
I don’t think so…”
They’re all 3D, mulan was 2D
Why would any woman want to be with someone who didn’t see them as their equal. I can understand someone not identifying as feminist because they do not understand it yet, but those who are actively against it and have female partners, like just, I can’t understand.
My partner David already was a feminist by nature when we met (not sure if he would have labelled himself as one) He is always the first to call one of his friends out for ‘rape jokes’ or female oriented derogatory terms (bitch, slut, whore etc) and it makes me feel like he understands the even smaller parts of feminism, not just the big parts. He understands men are a huge part of changing this because it’s for the most, the attitudes of men that need changing. Simply questioning why your friends feel that’s an appropriate thing to say is making them think about it, more aware of the crap pouring out their mouth.
But imagine dating someone who made these jokes, and when you told them it bothered you it lessened their view of you because you’re one of “those feminists” and they might actually have to consider peoples feelings. Sometimes women are scared to be feminists because men see it as unattractive and they want to be as appealing as possible (because that’s how they are valued). If you ever feel like someone isn’t going to like you as much if you stand up to any misogynistic behavior, please do not be quiet for fear of losing them cause you either want them to change, or you want them out of your life.
It can be very difficult with family members, I sure know my dad says somethings and I can be a bit scared to say something but you don’t have to automatically change someone. Just small reactions when you feel you can. If he says something about women as a whole, then ask him if he applies that to (insert female member of family) Even though you want him to think about EVERY woman like that, starting where his affections are helps.
idk I just woke up and had some feelings…
TL;DR don’t be scared to stand up to people being mean because that’s how we’re gonna fight this and who cares what those people think of you anyway
Author John Scalzi was on a roll this morning (currently 7:14 AM, 26 Sept. 2014) with a tweet he found from some guy sending out an “ultimatum” to women to “make a choice” between feminism and, well, men like him. So Scalzi launched into a truly magnificent set of scorchers, which I’m posting here for the delectation of people everywhere.
Also: I would like to thank that guy for setting the ultimatum. It makes finding a boyfriend so much easier when the undesirable ones wear a placard identifying themselves.
There is no problem that sass cannot solve
breaking news: evil feminist leader Anita Sarkeesian ruins gaming everywhere forever by saying “that’s pretty sexist, how about not doing that.”
nice guys everywhere are suffering. now they cannot beat up a hooker and steal her money without thinking “maybe this is sexist”. the american way has truly collapsed and our nation will never be the same. please take off your fedoras for a moment of silence.
"I decided that I was a feminist. This seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Women are choosing not to identify as feminists. Apparently, [women’s expression is] seen as too strong, too aggressive, anti-men, unattractive."

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)
The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover
