And no one is surprised.
infamouspielie asked: What exactly is feminism to you, equality for women, or dominance over men?
It’s about being anti oppression
i like how feminism is only thought of in that one extreme. YOU THINK YOU’RE BETTER THAN MEN, YOU WANT TO DOMINATE AND CONTROL MEN. it’s as if men know exactly what their privilege is over women in this world and the very idea of women’s liberation is 50% of the population rising to real power and doing the same shit they did to us for centuries. can’t have that!
False rape accusations are an anomaly.
True rape accusations are a norm.
You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.
"I’m not beautiful, I don’t care.” [x]
oppressed groups cant oppress their oppressors because they dont have the power because thats part of what being oppressed is. how hard is this to grasp
Whether we dye our hair, pluck, shave or laser it away; whether we stop at a line of kohl or a dusting of bronzer, we all negotiate the ideals that confront us from every newsstand, website, and cinema screen. The promotional tactics change to keep us from looking too closely at the inherent ugliness of how it works and to help us feel we will never match up. While our own notions of beauty change, they are still being dictated to us via a carousel of the latest talent who, first and foremost, are abundant in social capital; a social capital borne in no small part from the products they promote, which in turn helps their success. It’s dizzying.
… That’s the nature of capitalism and there’s nothing evolutionary about it. It favours the fickle revolution of trend that sees your favourite mascara discontinued abruptly and replaced by a more expensive and innovative “Lash xxxtreme”, because the natural look that we worked so hard to achieve for a while is suddenly superseded by the “falsies” effect that started with a wand and progressed to the hard stuff: countless spiderish fake eyelashes and millions of tiny tubes of glue. And yet we find the time and money to keep it going because anything less and we feel naked, or as though we are letting ourselves go.
"Men who want to support women in our struggle for freedom and justice should understand that it is not terrifically important to us that they learn to cry; it is important to us that they stop the crimes of violence against us."
Andrea Dworkin, Our Blood (1976)
Anonymous asked: like Im all for treating woman with respect, I am a fucking woman for fuck sakes, but you are putting way to much energy in to pointing this shit out. And shaming others for their sexuality because it doesn't seem right in your eyes or you dont agree with it because of womans rights pfft. I am a woman, and i fucking love roleplaying, I love rough hardcore sex, and there's nothing wrong with that, stop telling people they are in the wrong, when you are.
Studies show that after viewing pornography men are more likely to:
- report decreased empathy for rape victims
- have increasingly aggressive behavioral tendencies
- report believing that a woman who dresses provocatively deserves to be raped
- report anger at women who flirt but then refuse to have sex
- report decreased sexual interest in their girlfriends or wives
- report increased interest in coercing partners into unwanted sex acts (Bridges, 2006) (Yang, Gahyun, 2012).
