I suggest all females watch this.
*i suggest all humans watch this.
If you haven’t watched this yet, you really should.
This is a must, girls and boys.
I agree that everyone should watch this. This is one of the few videos on female representation in the media that at least tries to point out that the way females are represented has a negative effect on everyone, not just women.
I love that this`touches also on how media affects men, but wow. Stereotypes are perpetuated by television more than in reality, and they are so skewed because they have to be provocative or funny or any number of things that aren’t complete or real enough.
This affects not only women and men, but race, gays and lesbians, trans people, all people.
We all struggle against what we are supposed to be, what we are told we should be, and yet when positions in media and PR change, the image doesn’t. Because people get those positions by conforming to that image, and breaking out risks loss.
This is why it is so hard for anyone to be who they really are, because they are so busy being what other’s expect so as not to be harassed for not being what they are supposed to be.
Oh man, Geena Davis. I love her with all -y heart.
All my followers should watch this video
This is one of the many reasons why I want to be a filmmaker. 17% of filmmakers (writers, producers, directors, etc.) are women. How does that happen? Let’s change that.
Because she can’t create a family on her own. Maybe if she stopped screaming rape every time a someone held a door open for her, she MIGHT get attention.
I’m convinced that the “pro-choice/feminist who ridicules women who choose to have a family/choose to be a housewife” trope is completely made-up. Feel free to show me otherwise.
I have never seen it happen; I’ve only seen shitty memes like this as well as other people complaining about these kinds of things, but I’ve yet so see any stay-at-home mother shaming.
Check it out, I refuse to make a big deal over this, so I’ll keep it brief:
I reblog shit that I find funny or cool. I also find stereotypes to be hilarious, whether you may feel that it’s true or not. I also don’t care if a couple of butts are hurt by what I reblog. If you watch me or if you’re a friend of mine, it’s best to know that you should have some thick-skin. Sure, my butt’s been hurt a few times by friends and the people I watch, but I move on. Haha, story of my life.
If you like to assume shit about me, go right ahead, but that also means that what you assumed may or may not be true.
Check it out, I refuse to not make a big deal over this, so I wont keep it brief:
I’m sorry that you think someone saying “I can’t take feminists seriously, fucking cunts” is something worth agreeing with. I don’t have to be a woman in order to not only be a feminist, but to also realize that’s not okay.
I’ve been trying to let it slide because you were my pal and I didn’t want to cause a rift, but I can’t take it any more. Some of the things you’re agreeing with and “finding funny” on tumblr are extremely sexist, woman shaming, body shaming, hateful argument from ignorance-esq, and like I said earlier: that’s not okay and does not sit well with me. Sexist idiots on tumblr are sexist idiots on tumblr, but I never actually thought my friend would be one of them.
Hey, know what would have been cool? Apologizing. It’d be nice if my friend could actually be a decent friend and just own up to when they’re being a butt nugget, say sorry, and let it go, but instead he’s making a post about how these things “are funny, calm down.” And no, I’m not talking the original thing that sparked this; I’m talking more about more about all the other bullshit you’ve done as well. To be frank? The vegan hate that pissed me off recently was the least enraging/provoking thing you’ve posted and agreed with.
Fun fact: admitting that you think woman-shaming things are funny and then shrugging it off as “story of my life” isn’t convincing me that you value your friends, especially when they point out these terrible things to you and you simply pass it by without a second thought.
If you want to yuk it up with people who finds shit like this and this funny, which is only diving into your recent posts, btw, then go ahead, but I no longer am having any part of it. No skin off my nose, and definitely no skin off yours, eh?
If you sincerely don’t want to lose another friend due to your douchebaggery and inability to admit and apologize when you’re being a sexist asshole, feel free to talk to me about it in private. Otherwise, also feel free to ignore me or make another post about “how some people just can’t take a joke” or “this is just who I am, deal with it” Whatever works for you, pal.
EDIT: Don’t like that it’s public since this should be a “private matter”? Haha okay, that’s funny considering this post I originally reblogged and responded to was public. IMAGINE DAT SHIT.
Spoilers: It’s my blog and I’ll talk about whatever the hell I want. If I was being a gigantic sexist assbutt, I wouldn’t be able to stop anyone else from writing angry rants about me on their blogs. That’s exactly why I’m writing this tag on too after your “whatever, this is just who i am; deal with it” responses in my ask, just as I predicted.
If I had multiple, MULTIPLE people telling me that I was sexist (since I’m not the first), I’d probably consider reflecting on my life a bit, especially if those people were people I used to call my friends, but I guess that’s just what I would do.
Since I’m pretty sure you’ve blocked me (nice), and also since we no longer have much in common, I guess I’ll be the first to say it:
I find this whole thing laughable. You pretty much fought yourself to the ground while I was minding my own business at work. I don’t understand how you could think that I blocked you when I am still following your personal blog (which, tbh, I still am because I like what you post, imagine that.) As you can probably see, you don’t see “RC-hawkeye has started following you” on your dash because, well, I never removed you. Looks like you already made up your mind very poorly, based off of assumptions and probably seeing red the whole time. There’s more to life than just sitting behind a computer obsessively worrying about childish bullcrap.
And I don’t see the need to apologize because, well, I don’t feel like it. You don’t deserve it because you’re being a whiny bitch about the whole situation, and demanding that I give you an apology. I don’t hand out insincere apologies to validation-seeking people trying to fulfill their agendas. Especially when I feel there’s nothing to apologize about.
Thanks for living up to the stereotype. Not only contradicting yourself at various points, but being very preachy about it as well. In which, I have said before, I find stereotypes to be hilarious. Not because my morals are fucked up (which, they are quite sound), but some stereotypes exist for a reason.
It was fun.
Just so we’re clear:
1). Not denying the sexist/body-shaming accusations (“I find stereotypes to be hilarious”). Stereotypes can be racist too you know, but I wont even ask if you find those funny as well.
2). “I don’t see the need to apologize because, well, I don’t feel like it.”
3). From what I gather, people are definitely missing out by not following seeing your blog (“Looks like you already made up your mind very poorly”, “you won’t see “RC-hawkeye has started following you”) because, without a doubt, it’s an unspeakable honor for you to follow a blog and to have you as a friend.
“Thanks for living up to the stereotype… being very preachy about it”
What stereotype? The “preachy vegan”? I’m pretty sure that calling you out on your anti-woman “humor” isn’t me “preaching” to you about eating meat.
“It was fun.”
Not really. The neat-o guy I met and got drunk with in 2009 was actually a neat-o guy. It’s a pity what the bitterness seems to have done to you over the years.
I wish you luck in your travels, Mr. Bird.
First of all, Susan B. Anthony wasn’t solely one who started the “feminist movement.” You say I know nothing about the origin of feminism, Mr. Anon, when you yourself fail to acknowledge the feminists that were active before Susan B. was even born.
Second of all, Susan B. Anthony died in 1908. The difficulties she faced regarding feminism was very different compared to difficulties feminists face now. The founder of a movement doesn’t control what the movement develops into, because times change and rights change and society changes, and that’s expected. In her day, people were still punished for “going against god.” In her time, women couldn’t vote. In her time, all abortions were unsafe.
The times have now changed, and so has the movement that was started. If feminism didn’t adapt and keep going forward, the whole movement would have stopped after the suffrage in the early 1900’s.
What does humans being our own species have to do with anything relative to this conversation? The point I was making is that “nature” is irrelevant to gender roles, which you indirectly admitted yourself by saying hyenas can’t be compared to humans, so thanks for your support I suppose!
Humor me anon, what do you mean by “works for them but it wont work for us”?
What exactly would/does “work for us”?
Are you implying that gender inequality “works for us”?
Feel free to elaborate.
