Sucks to be brown in Space: A List of "Men's Rights" Issues That Feminism Is Already Working On
Feminists do not want you to lose custody of your children. The assumption that women are naturally better caregivers is part of patriarchy.
Feminists do not like commercials in which bumbling dads mess up the laundry and competent wives have to bustle in and fix it. The assumption that women are naturally better housekeepers is part of patriarchy.
Feminists do not want you to have to make alimony payments. Alimony is set up to combat the fact that women have been historically expected to prioritize domestic duties over professional goals, thus minimizing their earning potential if their “traditional” marriages end. The assumption that wives should make babies instead of money is part of patriarchy.
Feminists do not want anyone to get raped in prison. Permissiveness and jokes about prison rape are part of rape culture, which is part of patriarchy.
Feminists do not want anyone to be falsely accused of rape. False rape accusations discredit rape victims, which reinforces rape culture, which is part of patriarchy.
Feminists do not want you to be lonely and we do not hate “nice guys.” The idea that certain people are inherently more valuable than other people because of superficial physical attributes is part of patriarchy.
Feminists do not want you to have to pay for dinner. We want the opportunity to achieve financial success on par with men in any field we choose (and are qualified for), and the fact that we currently don’t is part of patriarchy. The idea that men should coddle and provide for women, and/or purchase their affections in romantic contexts, is condescending and damaging and part of patriarchy.
Feminists do not want you to be maimed or killed in industrial accidents, or toil in coal mines while we do cushy secretarial work and various yarn-themed activities. The fact that women have long been shut out of dangerous industrial jobs (by men, by the way) is part of patriarchy.
Feminists do not want you to commit suicide. Any pressures and expectations that lower the quality of life of any gender are part of patriarchy. The fact that depression is characterized as an effeminate weakness, making men less likely to seek treatment, is part of patriarchy.
Feminists do not want you to be viewed with suspicion when you take your child to the park (men frequently insist that this is a serious issue, so I will take them at their word). The assumption that men are insatiable sexual animals, combined with the idea that it’s unnatural for men to care for children, is part of patriarchy.
Feminists do not want you to be drafted and then die in a war while we stay home and iron stuff. The idea that women are too weak to fight or too delicate to function in a military setting is part of patriarchy.
Feminists do not want women to escape prosecution on legitimate domestic violence charges, nor do we want men to be ridiculed for being raped or abused. The idea that women are naturally gentle and compliant and that victimhood is inherently feminine is part of patriarchy.
Feminists hate patriarchy. We do not hate you.
DO NOT. READ. THE COMMENTS. If you value your sanity just DON’T.
I have just written the following sentence:
“All dogs want to know that their owners love them, and lots of praise – scratching behind the ears, loving hugs and plenty of reinforcements that they’re a “good girl” – is one of the best ways to keep them happy.”
I am beginning to suspect that being in a relationship with me is sometimes a bit like having a dog…
The Man Who Lives Alone
This is basically my reaction during every one of her scenes. Nothing against the actress, I just hate Sansa’s character. She’s a dumb bitch to her whole family the first season and then basically just suffers because of it throughout the rest of the series. Her only real purpose in the plot is being the party through which we see what viscous cunts the Lannisters are, and the one Lannister who doesn’t treat her like shit, Tyrion, gets nothing but disgusted looks and general loathing from her.
you know.. i wasn’t gonna reply, i tried not to, but i just can’t. you’re fucking kidding me right? don’t get me wrong, you’re completely open to your own opinion, but once you add to MY photoset that said character is a “dumb bitch”, that makes it kind of hard not to say something. in the first season, sansa stark is not a “dumb bitch” to her whole family, she is a fucking child. she had dreams and aspirations and yes, childish notions of what her life was going to be like, but she had no clue about how things really are. she was TOLD her entire life that one day she would marry a handsome lord (in this case joffrey) and she obviously thought that’s how things were going to be. everyone is allowed to have this allowance of “stupidity” when they’re young: it’s called innocence. before she knew what was happening it was fucking shattered: her father murdered, her sister missing, her brother and mother hundreds of miles away basically plotting against the crown, the same crown that held HER prisoner and had her beaten and tormented daily. she doesn’t suffer in the rest of the series just because she was a “dumb bitch” in the first season. she’s not paying for anything. she didn’t DO anything. what do you think she SHOULD have done? killed joffrey? that’s punishable by death, but she almost did it anyway. run away? she wouldn’t have made it in the situation like arya is in, BUT ARYA WOULDN’T HAVE MADE IT IN THE SITUATION SANSA IS IN. SHE WOULD HAVE SPOKEN OUT LONG AGO AND GOTTEN HERSELF KILLED, BECAUSE IN SANSA’S SITUATION IT’S WORDS THAT MATTER AND SHE’S LYING THROUGH HER TEETH TO STAY ALIVE. “her only real purpose in the plot is being the party through which we see what viscous cunts the lannisters are” wow really? i think if the show wanted to show those “cunts” as you call them, they could (and oh wait, THEY DO) without needing sansa’s point of view. sansa isn’t a fucking plot device to show cruelty, she’s a main character who gets shit on for being a young girl. tyrion shows her some kindness, that’s true, but what do you expect her to do, kiss his feet and thank him for treating her like a human being? sansa stark is actually really fucking smart, thanks very much, and if she was a “dumb bitch” she wouldn’t still be breathing. she can barely find it in her to lie to joffrey and cersei without breaking down, and she can’t trust anyone. I REPEAT: SHE CANNOT TRUST ANYONE. TYRION IS A LANNISTER: AT THIS POINT, THAT NAME IS POISON TO HER. IN HER EYES, ONE WRONG WORD TO HIM COULD EASILY BE TOLD TO CERSEI AND THE KING AND BEFORE SHE KNOWS IT HER HEAD IS MOUNTED ON A SPIKE BESIDE HER FATHER’S. SO BASICALLY: SANSA STARK DOESN’T OWE YOU SHIT.
Sexism and hate against Sansa Stark is gross and sad.
#i love this film #but it should have had queer ladies though #whip it
Wait, you…you’re telling me someone made a film about women’s roller derby (which this looks like it is, not that I know anything about it) and didn’t include queer women? Because…dude. I know a bunch of roller derby girls and they are all queer as fuck and say that basically the whole of the rest of their teams are too. The impression I get is that the entire sport is a literal hotbed of hot queer ladies who are incredibly gorgeous. I’ve slept with a couple of roller derby girls myself, actually, and they are wonderful people and queer as all hell [grin]
Actually, the photographs are spaced ten years apart, not sixteen.
1912 to 1922.
The young, homeless (but no less dapper) wanderer shown in the first survived the sinking of the Titanic and swam to the shores of West Egg. There he built a life and a large, empty house, in an effort to win the heart of the wealthy, upper class woman he’d fallen in love with a decade earlier and had been separated from against his will.
He shed his earlier identity, and changed his name to reflect his new station. Jack was now known as Jay Gatsby, the eccentric millionaire who threw parties every night in the hopes that one day his love would show up and spin with him as they had long ago in the dance hall of the lower decks.
And then, at the beginning of Inception, he starts out washed up on a shore.
still no oscar
Leo’s entire film career of unrelated projects has better continuity than glee.
