BY HER FUCKING NAME BECAUSE I’M NOT A MISOGYNISTIC PIECE OF SHIT!
Sadly but thats how people are.
This video gave me so much life.
So beautiful, so powerful, so amazing my head exploded and I’m currently gluing it back together.
can’t reblog this fast enough.
Also, they should add skin tone/race. If I see one more fucking otaku shitting on a PoC for not being “accurate” with cosplay I’m gonna kick some teeth in.
And can I just say how absurd it is for someone to deride PoC for cosplaying JAPANESE characters, but never saying a damn thing about WHITE people cosplaying Japanese characters.
You know what really grinds my gears? Women get demonized for getting pregnant and terminating the pregnancy (having an abortion) because they don’t want the baby. You always hear about people trying to outlaw abortion. You really wanna see a decline in the abortion rate? Outlaw pre-marital sex. Oh wait, that would infringe upon the man’s holy right to put his penis in anyone he wants, whenever he wants, married or not. So that’s never gonna happen.
And no one ever takes into account that most women who have these abortions are fully supported by the man who doesn’t want the child either. Seriously, I can’t tell you how many times I hear the argument “But what if the father wants to keep the baby?” Well, you know what, 9 times out of 10, if the woman is pregnant and doesn’t want the baby but the father does, the two aren’t together. So he can keep the baby if he wants, but don’t expect any help out of me thank you very much.
Look, I know that the abortion topic is hairy, and there are always going to be cases where the woman is the worst case scenario, but there’s reasons for each individual abortion and every case is different. Outlawing it - to any degree and in any state is as ignorant as Rep. Akin’s claims that a woman’s vagina shuts down in the case of a legitimate rape.
And also, the election is about way more than the economy.
“The pictures in these fashion magazines are just like monsters in the dark. We know they’re fake, but they still bother us.”
A young African woman with dreams of becoming a teacher takes reading and writing lessons from a visiting American. But when the male village elders find out, she is sentenced to death for breaking from tradition.
“Yefon” is a film that continues in the proud tradition of socially conscious, Africa-based cinema like “Hotel Rwanda,” “Beat the Drum” and “Sarafina”—but unlike those movies, its producers will come from the ranks of generous Kickstarter supporters: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/405663859/yefon-the-movie
It has already attracted the attention of Hollywood stars like Jimmy Jean-Louise (“Tears of the Sun” “Heroes”), Adriana Barraza (Best Supporting Actress Oscar nominee, “Babel”) and Hakeem Kae-Kazim (“Hotel Rwanda”). The film is being co-produced by Justin Massion, the director of the Kickstarter campaign for “Space Command,” which brought in $75,000 in just three days, and ended with over $200,000.
“Yefon” is the brainchild of 22-year-old actress and filmmaker Sahndra Fon Dufe, who got her inspiration from too many similar, true stories from Africa. Broken-hearted by this sad reality, she and the production team have pledged to use a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the film, a companion documentary, books and related merchandise to build an all-girls school in Nso, the Cameroon village where “Yefon” is set.
There are less than 4 weeks left to reach the goal of $50,000 so please help spread the word about this project - we need all the support we can get from Tumblr!
Thank you rachelstoll for this submission.
Please, Tumblr, go pledge at least $1 to help fund this movie. Oppression isn’t nearly as much a reality in the US as it is in the rest of the world, and we need to raise awareness about what’s happening outside our own country. Feminism isn’t a battle that’s anywhere close to being won. But we sometimes forget how good we have it here, as opposed to in third world countries. So let’s solidly get behind this project and help it become a reality, to raise awareness for our sisters.
Also, because the link above is broken, please use this link to get to the Kickstarter page. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/405663859/yefon-the-movie
Meet Lauren, my first model for this project. Lauren and I have known each other since middle school. She’s an incredible woman. She’s self confident, self sufficient, and self aware, and that makes her the perfect candidate for a spot in my ode to the beauty of real women.
Lauren has played softball, she was in band in middle and high school, she is a kick ass artist, and she loves video games. Not to mention she’s incredibly outgoing, and has a wild sense of humor. She’s a very special and unique woman, who knows that she doesn’t need a man to make her worth something.
Granted, this situation isn’t just a fem issue. It’s a sexual harassment issue too, and it’s just… I can’t deal with it on my own.
So, I’m in New Orleans for my big brother’s wedding, and everything was going great. But then I got a call from my boyfriend, Jeremy. He, apparently, had a run in with our brand new assistant manager last night. The man’s name is Andy, and he’s been in our store for less than a week. Granted, he has worked there before, but that was two years ago, and he left shortly before Jeremy and I got hired.
Well, last night, Jeremy was at work and he walked into the produce room, and there was Andy talking to one of the other produce guys. So Jeremy goes on about his business and Andy turns to him and, with an attitude, asks “Who are you?” So Jeremy introduces himself, and tells Andy that he works in produce and so on, and Andy’s only reply to that was “Do you like big fat bitches?”
Let’s just stop and dissect that sentence for a moment. “Do. You. Like. Big. Fat. Bitches.”
To start off with, where do you get off referring to women as bitches? It’s funny when Katt Williams does it, it’s crude when you do it. And it’s offensive, and wrong, and you need to stop and remember that a “Bitch” gave birth to you, and pushed your misogynistic head out of her vagina, and that alone should make you want to respect women enough not to call them bitches.
Now let’s move on to that whole phrase “Big fat bitches”. Ummm… EXCUSE ME?! If I may point this out - THAT’S BLATANT BODY SHAMING! That’s one of the most derogatory statements I’ve ever ever heard. And those were his exact words! “Big fat bitches”? Are you kidding me?! There’s a million things wrong with that. I can’t even get my head straight long enough to list all the reasons that statement alone should have gotten him fired.
And now I should go on to mention that one of Andy’s later comments to my boyfriend was a question that boiled down to “When was the last time you masturbated?” That, sir, is sexual harassment and also NONE OF YOUR FUCKING BUSINESS! (if you can’t tell, I’m starting to get mad) So now, he’s not only made an extremely bigoted, sexist, misogynistic statement, but he’s also sexually harassed my boyfriend, which I will not stand for. The only problem is, this man has been reported for sexual harassment before, and nothing ever got done. So what do we do? We report him to the union, call ethics point, talk to both of our senior managers about him, and what if nothing gets done? I’m honestly at my wits end right now, and I can’t wait to have my own run in with him.
I want to make so many references to his tiny, minuscule little cock. I want to make him feel like he’s about the size of his shriveled, untouched manhood. I want to shove a pair of 8-inch stilettos up his ass until he feels even a tenth of the pain that women go through on a daily basis just to make themselves feel “good enough” for pigs like him. I want to ram a 10-inch black dildo up his ass, and put him in his place for good. This man needs to learn a lesson. I want, so badly, to be the one to teach it to him. I’ve wanted, since I heard about him, to put him in his rightful place, but I haven’t had a run in with him yet.
But, honestly, what should I do? How do you handle men like this in the work place?
