i wish people would stop telling me what to do with my blog and just go to the archive.
merci beaucoup ma belle!
oh thank you!
MY PANTIES ARE FABULOUS I HAD TO TALK ABOUT THEM.
haha thank you, just please watch your use of the word “crazy”, it can be very triggering for some folks that follow me.
then unfollow me. i don’t know what else to tell you.
if you think me giving a shit about stereotypes of females and negative portrayal of them gives feminism a bad name, then maybe you need to re-evaluate what it means to care about gender equality.
i didn’t criticize his video because of his gender specifically (although he totally has unchecked male privilege) but the jokes he was making at the expense of my gender.
so there you have it.
i, as a *woman* (because i’m not a child, you see), hate stereotypes that portray my gender as vapid, useless, attention seeking people. now, my question is, why don’t you?
second part of your question also sent: And NigaHiga is funny as fuck, don’t get your little panties in a twist.
yep, some his stuff is funny,i never said it wasn’t. his piece about feminism wasn’t.
also my panties aren’t in a twist, i’m not wearing a g-string, that’s basically why i stopped wearing them. i’m actually wearing a lovely pear of leopard print underwear from la senza and they surely are not twisted. i got them on sale. it was pretty awesome. i have a thing for animal print you see. i really could just talk about my underwear forever, i love it so! one of the reasons i love it so is because it surely is not twisted.
just thought i would clarify for you.
yay! hope you stick around :P a lot don’t once the questions start flowing in.
this is just awesome awesome awesome. i’m so glad you took the time to educate yourself and remained open minded to learning :D
omg these compliments are just making me blush so so hard!
thank you :)
well what the hell makes her think you’re anti-woman? one gender identity does not mean you’re against another. she’s being illogical but something tells me she just probably is not educated in gender and this type of stuff. use an example like “if someone is a man, it does not mean they are against women”, etc, and then perhaps that will paint a clearer picture for her?
perhaps start by asking her was she DOES understand about different gender identities, and fill in the gaps for her… chances are there will be a lot. i’m not going to lie, i don’t have any experience with this as i am a cisgender woman. but that’s how i would start.
do any followers have any better suggestions? i think mine falls pretty damn short of being helpful.
this is… amazing. thank you so so so so much for sending this to me.
i’m really glad you’re sticking to your guns and staying true to what YOU want to do and what you want to be.
hopefully your mom will come around.
in the mean time, continue to kick ass being an awesome person.
yeah he’s one of those people, you just gotta walk away.
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MENZ.
i just checked it out and it’s pretty awful. just… so much hatred. it’s so sad.
i haven’t and i’m not sure i want to. i bet i can figure out the sort of douchebaggery that will be on there. i will avoid so as to not get upset.
i didn’t know this! this makes me roll my eyes BIG time. sigh.
wouldn’t you say the the smaller and more frail the person, the more they get hurt?
a really big muscular cisman versus, say, my mom, who is 100 pounds and 5 feet.
she would get destroyed in a car crash, he would not.
so i don’t think it’s a matter of the person occupying more space, really.
that’s really interesting actually! i’m sure there are other factors that go into it but i suppose when they do the crash test dummy, they have a bigger person behind the wheel?
however, it doesn’t make sense! all genders come in all shapes and sizes. there are really tiny men out there, just like there are big women. the idea is very cissexist! not cool!
but still it sucks that one gender disproportionately gets injured more. :(
if you reblog a macro and take off the image description, that is making it less accessible to some folks.
I can’t control what you do with the macro once you reblog it, but I would ask that you rethink deleting the image description.
I understand that it might not be as visually appealing on your blog with the wording under the macro, but give some thought to making the macro more accessible for others.
Thank you very much :)
eh, i don’t read that video as joking at all.
even if it is a joke, he’s spreading harmful stereotypes and joking about it isn’t okay, it just normalizes the statements he’s making.
i agree with that sentiment, he seems like a cool dude just running his mouth about something he is completely uneducated about. sigh.
ok thank you for the clarification!
that part of it just didn’t rest well with me.
some people will only fuck feminists (i’m one of these folks too!), which is great for them and good for you, but not everyone has that standards which i’m sure you are aware of :)
oooh! good call.
so followers, if you’re in the mood for telling someone that he’s not knowledgeable about feminism at all, youtube nigahiga’s video “off the pill feminist” and comment away!!!
good luck all :)
just curious why she shouldn’t sleep with him?
i mean if they make an arrangement to have it be just consensual sex, isn’t that okay? i agree with don’t marry him but not all feminists are super super picky about their sexual partner(s).
if it’s consensual, i think the feminist should do what they want, even if it means never seeing the partner’s non-feminist ass again.
that guy needs to check his privilege.
he has no idea what feminism is.
he said there were only 2 sexes UGH HE IS A JERK.
and ended his video with “take it like a man”
no fuck that shit.
he guy wouldn’t know what sexism was if it smacked him in the fucking face.
so that’s what i think of that video.
1) go dutch to be safe and avoid confusion.
2) if you’re dating a cisman, make sure he knows his privilege. if he refuses to acknowledge or try to learn, dump the motherfucker.
3) actually that ^ goes for all the person’s privileges
4) act as a team- fight the good fight together. support each other when one of you is calling someone out on their ignorance.
5) stay true to yourself. it’s cliche but totally true. never lose sight of who you are in a relationship.
i’m not sure if this is helpful, your question wasn’t very specific haha. if any of my followers have any ideas, lemme know.
no i haven’t… where can i find it? i’m interested!
awesome, yeah. that’s like i refuse to buy american apparel because of their gross advertisements.
i think you shouldn’t be giving you money to dr. pepper, lol.
seriously, why would you support them after their sexist ad? you’re giving them money by purchasing their product after.
if you really want them to fuck off, don’t give them your cash.
oh dear this is difficult.
okay. so an object is something that we objectify. we objectify people when we take then at face value and dehumanize them, thus making them less than human and more of a “thing”. when we give comic book characters no personality but big boobs, big ass, stereotypical “feminine” features, that is making them an object.
“sexy human being” is really subjective. whats sexy to one person isn’t sexy to another. however, i think whats important to know is that when when someone is a sexy human being, they’re a person with traits, characteristics, personalities, etc. there is more to them than their bodies.
i hope i helped a bit, this was difficult!
send me the link and i will post it
i am informing you that it is not able to be signed by ME personally because i’m Canadian (woot!)
but i will gladly post it :)
[tw: rape used in an example scenario]
well, first i would ask myself: how open minded is this person? he sounds really dismissive and it might be reeeally difficult to get through to him.
don’t go for everything at once, tell him where he is going wrong little by little and hopefully he will stop being a jerk or at least be respectful enough to avoid saying terrible things around you.
i’ve found what’s hilarious is asking them to explain their sentiments. for example:
dude: blah blah blah rape joke blah blah
you: sorry, explain that? i don’t get what you’re saying.
dude: oh… blah blah asking for it blah blah
you: i still don’t get it, you can ask for rape?
dude: blah blah erm. [either shuts the fuck up or tells you to shut up and get over it which means you need to reevaluate you friendship with this guy]
evaluate from here
sometimes it is better to leave it alone, sometimes it is worth being assertive over. judge wisely.
hope i helped!
you know what?
what happens happens.
kids at that age really don’t remember random stuff like that.
chances are, the kids will all turn out alright.
this is a really subjective opinion i think, many people would disagree that video games are that harmful and studies around it are totally inconclusive.
the same goes for the negative impact of porn on our society, totally inconclusive studies all around. so it’s really difficult to compare.
but i see where you’re coming from.
yeah, i mean usually parents have sites like hers blocked just in case!
it really should be a non-issue.
let’s stop calling them dumbass parents though, all parents fuck up here and there, they’re human beings too right?
this would be ideal as well, haha :)
…. they were in grade 1 and 3.
i don’t think kids in grade 1 know what google is. they hardly know how to type. i know this because i worked with kids that age. they were just getting familiar with a computer mouse, lol.
at that age they’re using education computer games to learn patterns, the alphabet, spelling, etc etc.
even by the third grade their computer skills aren’t that good, it’s still mostly adults navigating the system for them and guiding them.
i highly, highly doubt they will immediately consult a search engine.
Ha, yep, they realize that and they don’t care.
It’s really a sad, ignorant situation. Sasha seems like a very cool person.
haha that was a submission :P
please feel free to submit an idea for a macro anytime. even key words. i’ll think of something if you cannot come up with an actual statement.
