since it’s almost october aka halloween month i just wanna remind people to take extra care to tag things like horror, blood, gore and other halloween related things for those of us who don’t deal well with a lot of those
also spiders. tag your fucking spiders.
male celebrities for Emma Watson’s #heforshe
Okay that’s nice but what have any of these men done to promote gender equality???
Jerome Jarre regularly posts videos where he harasses people on the street (not exclusively women, so I guess he is for “gender equality” that way)
Jared Leto was in the EXTREMELY transphobic movie Dallas Buyers Club and is also a rapist
These men aren’t DOING anything except making themselves feel better by scrawling a hashtag on a piece of paper. What the fuck have they ever done to help women and non-binary people? Would they be respectful if they were told to stay out of a discussion because their opinions weren’t welcome? Even if the people asking weren’t polite? Are they supportive of WOC, queer, and disabled women? Do they use their privilege to battle the patriarchy? Do they stand for Viola Davis and the other black actresses who can’t get roles because of their skin color, while they can get any role they want with a snap of their fingers? Did any of them point out how cissexist the #HeForShe hashtag is? Do any of them do anything for feminism that requires any effort?
I refuse to award men (especially white, famous, incredibly WEALTHY men like everyone pictured here) with cookies and compliments for doing the absolute bare minimum to fight misogyny. We deserve more.
how do other white people manage to feel so persecuted on tumblr that they need to make a fucking half-assed photoset about it on the daily like the worst i’ve ever seen is ‘why can’t white people handle spicy food’ and i just read it like ‘yeah. yeah you’re right. i’m white and i buy mild salsa. you got me’
'white people go to starbucks and wear uggs', okay?, we do, that’s not an insult; stop getting up in arms over this, the shit we do will always be 10 times worse than someone making a joke at our salsa-eating habits,
shut the fuck up
Family Guy regularly plays rape and pedophilia for a joke, and has a history of transmisogyny, but you know ~tumblr~
"tumblr gets offended by everything!!!1111!!!"
that’s a sign that you are a piece of shit and you need to delete your account and throw yourself in the nearest garbage can.
Every time I see “only tumblr would get offended by [rape jokes], [pedophilia], [transphobia] etc”, I’m more and more grateful for the activist part of this place.
Friendly reminder that Dreamworks created a character who not only displayed everything that’s wrong with Nice Guy Syndrome, but also turned into a supervillian when he was friend zoned.
Mega Mind was such an important movie filled with so many important messages.
The “you need allies to survive” is an explicit threat and a pretty good sign someone isn’t an ally. They’re basically threatening to withdraw their support for your basic humanity and survival if you don’t lick their boots.
Something to keep in mind.
i really need people to stop talking about mras only in terms of fedoras/being bronys/how unkempt they are, etc. because there are dudes out here looking like hollister models who need to be held just as accountable for their creepy/misogynistic behavior
and don’t get me started on how y’all aren’t saying “unkempt” y’all are saying fat slobs who only eat doritos and mtn. dew
your fatphobia isn’t progressive and there are dudes out here eating organic free range flax seed compote and saying the same shit that the doritos dudes are okay
they don’t get a pass just because they’re conventially attractive
Also socially acceptable misogynists and MRAs are in a much stronger position to propagate and enforce the societal bullshit they spew.
Like, give no free pass to people who aren’t conventionally attractive, but keep in mind that their societal influence outside of some very limited circles is very, very low.
I feel you, kid.
