instead of proclaiming that every girl in the world is sexy no matter what why don’t we start talking about how it doesn’t matter whether or not you’re sexy because sex appeal is irrelevant and is used as a tool for male dominance
please watch avril lavigne’s new video it is so much worse than you are imagining as you are reading this, it is so much worse than anyone could have ever guessed it would be
oh my god it’s like everything regrettable about my junior high years was given a budget and a video camera
It’s like Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku appropriation phase + the nightmare sequence from Heathers + dubstep made specifically for a mid-2010 car commercial + those kids with cat ears that used to follow me and my friends around in high school + the inner monologue of a middle school girl character written by an adult man.
I don’t even
The fact that this hasn’t turned into an international fiasco is blowing my mind
wouldn’t that require people to remember that she exists
tumblr earth day: “Here’s to another 5 billion years!”
OH SHIT DID YOU REALLY WANT TO OPEN THAT CAN OF WORMS
(actually they probably did, because if they do get shit for it from the young-earthers they can spin it into some publicity)
Am I the only one who’s noticed that a lot more cisphobia, heterophobia, and misandry occurs on this site than transphobia, homophobia and misogyny?
That kinda makes social justice warriors who fight on these matters redundant.
You’re kidding, right? Right?
Fandomsandfeminism, I’ve been following u for a while, and your posts have recently been making want to scratch my own face off. You’re very much an extremist. You hate on anything that even resembles an oppressor even if they’re not actually oppressing people. Your approach seems very extremist. Instead of trying to educate people you automatically label people who have any sort privilege as oppressors, even if they are not. I agree with OP, I see more the reverse on this website.
That isn’t to say that homophobia, transphobia and misogyny don’t exist - those are very very prominent, horrible problems in our messed up society…it’s just the people on this website try so hard to fight for equality that sometimes they forget what the meaning of equality actually is and instead of trying to educate they try to oppress the ‘oppressors’ and, honestly, it’s a load of crap and it’s reason people don’t take this website seriously. Sjw have become a complete joke because of extremist shitty behaviour.
BTW I AM NOT SAYING RACISM, HATE OF LGBTQ+ PEOPLE, MISOGYNY ETC ETC DOESN’T EXIST. JUST THAT TRYING TO OPPRESS THE OPPRESSORS ISN’T GONNA GET U ANYWHERE. OKAY. EDUCATE DON’T OPPRESS.
If I may take a moment to quote the lovely MLK Jr. ”The question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be… The nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists.”
I don’t really, honestly, truly CARE if you think that I’m too “extreme” when it comes to caring about structural inequality and oppression in our culture.
Only the privileged and the ignorant have the luxury of moderation.
Anyone who says the phrase “oppress the oppressors” unironically is willfully (or possibly enthusiastically) ignorant. The phrase makes no sense at all, unless you are actively trying to avoid what the word oppression means.
I have seen at least ten times as many posts bewailing all the cisphobia, heterophobia, and misandry on tumblr than I have posts that would actually count as those things, if those things actually existed in a way that mattered
THEY’RE TEARING DOWN THE WALLPAPER
there’s a little water damage on the ceiling, so they need to repair that and paint it, and I guess they decided I was right about the condition of the wallpaper so they’re up there now, I’m guessing they’ll just paint the whole lot at one go
the walls are in terrible shape but you know what I’m just glad to have that awful paper gone
got rid of two more boxes and rearranged everything so it makes some kind of sense
I’m also trying to get rid of a bunch of old dishes my mom has given me at various times, I know at least some of them have value but I just have way too much for eBay so I’m trying to find an auction company to work with and it’s a little frustrating — no, I don’t know what all of it is and I don’t know if it’s all necessarily worth anything, that’s why I’m calling an expert, can I just come over there and show you what I have
(one place was really rude and dismissive actually because I didn’t know everything about what I had and I’m like, do you treat people this way if they want an appraisal, of course we aren’t experts, geez)
they probably get a lot of people like WHAT DO YOU MEAN MY MASS-PRODUCED THOMAS KINCAID PLATES WON’T SELL and I get that but I hope to make it clear to them that my main goal is to get this stuff out of my house with the least amount of hassle to me, and if they can’t sell it I am totally fine with taking it to the thrift store, you won’t offend me if you tell me I have a bunch of worthless crap
Let’s play a game.
