I wonder if any of my friends had a crush on me but then got to know me and were like “haha no, dodged a bullet there.”

When a woman has scholarly inclinations there is generally something wrong with her sexual nature.

Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil (1886)

Just a friendly reminder that Nietzsche was rampantly sexist, regularly called women who didn’t submit to men “barbarous”, “charmless”, “mediocre”.

If you’re a woman with scholarly inclinations that lead you to adoring Nietzsche, just recall that he would have probably told you his age’s equivalent to “shut up, get back in the kitchen, and make me a sandwich”

it was incredibly difficult for me to get through ‘beyond good and evil’ for this reason. in the middle of talking about something really interesting, he just fucking decides ‘i haven’t interrupted this with a sexist rant in a while’ and talks about how women can’t do philosophy because of their docile nature or some shit

like he wasn’t even just casually misogynistic like most people in the 1800s. he actively made a point of pushing his misogyny every fucking chapter. what the fuck dude

In ecce homo he says that women who want equal rights are just infertile women who want to drag real/good women down, and he says that you can cure women by giving them babies.

(via queerfabulousmermaid)

And let’s keep in mind that he was not the only worshipped philosopher who thought this way. A good many of your ‘faves’ were misogynistic fuckbags.

I need feminism because most men’s restrooms still aren’t equipped with baby changing stations. As someone who was married to a man who had sole custody of his young son, I’m hyperaware that feminism means EQUALITY, not female superiority. Feminism should and does support a man’s right to be as much of a parent to his child(ren) as any mother is allowed/expected to be.

This is a constant problem for Mr. Tea and myself. We’ve got twins, so even though I can change one kid on the change table in the ladies’ room, he’s left standing sort of awkwardly in the lobby with a messy child while I change one, come back, and get the other.

Nobody’s suggesting that men aren’t parents, so the lack of change tables goes well beyond ‘gender role reinforcing’ and straight into ‘ridiculous’.

My dad actually almost got kicked out of a mall once for changing my brother in the womens room of a mall. The only reason they didn’t call the cops on him was because the ladies in the room supported him.

I’d never even considered this but I support it

Race matters. Race matters in part because of the long history of racial minorities’ being denied access to the political process.

Race matters to a young man’s view of society when he spends his teenage years watching others tense up as he passes, no matter what neighborhood he grew up. Race matters to a young woman’s sense of self when she states her hometown, and then is pressed, ‘No, where are you really from?’

The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to speak openly and candidly on the subject of race, and to apply the Constitution with eyes open to the unfortunate effects of centuries of racial discrimination.

Why we need to start a #SaveVictoriaHand campaign.

In the screencaps Agent Victoria Hand is killed for shock value and to reveal Agent Grant Ward’s duplicity that he was HYDRA all along.  Its a slight twist on killing a female character for manpain but her death is still a plot point in Ward’s narrative. They didn’t even give her a decent fight scene. He just empties a clip into her and sits down and mopes.

But here are the reasons why we need to start a campaign:

  • Let me start off by mentioning that it’d be shame if she never came back and you never found out she was a canonically lesbian character. She even had a girlfriend in the comic books.
  • (Not to mention there are  no canon queer couples in the MCU yet).  As much as I ship Skimmons that’s all subtext.
  • It would probably help with the ratings if she did come back.
  • And hopefully help take down Garrett, she needs revenge damnit. Why does no one know she’s dead???????
  • We need some LGBTQIA+ representation
  • If they can resurrect Coulson and Fury can fake his own death, why not?

There was literally too much wasted potential in Agent Victoria Hand’s character to not try doing this.  I’m going to start tweeting about it come Tuesday after 12pm pacific time and hopefully if this gets enough signal boosting we’ll see it trending by Tuesday evening. Remember to use the hashtag #SaveVictoriaHand and tell people why she deserves to come back!

blackpowerisforblackmen:

Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision  in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion

White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!
