Don’t forget we have to wake up Green Day tomorrow.
Ok just a reminder to everyone: If you’re planning on tweeting billie joe armstrong “wake up” or something tomorrow, DON’T. The song is about his father’s death and so it’s really personal and treating it like a joke isn’t the right thing to do. Plus he’s asked so many times for people to stop and no one listens so yeah. Please don’t do that.
everyone thinks rosa has this really badass boyfriend who probably wears leather and rides motorcycles and could probably kill u with his pinky finger or something
but then one day this really cute girl comes into the precinct to talk to rosa. she’s wearing a cute dress with bright happy colors and she’s so timid and soft spoken and awkward and the complete opposite of rosa
and everyones surprised bc this person is talking to rosa and rosa is being nICE and FRIENDLY to this girl????????????/ she even SMILED for her???????????????????????????????????
then the girl leaves and everyone’s like “uh rosa who was that”
it’s so weird that men can make endless misogynistic comments and not have to reassure people that they don’t hate women but when women, especially those in the spotlight, talk about things concerning women they feel an overwhelming need to constantly reassure the world that they don’t hate men, that they love men.
and by weird i mean a cultural norm to demean women and overvalue men.
Study after study after study shows that spanking children causes anger, aggression, decreased impulse control, anxiety, lower thresholds for frustration etc etc
You didn’t “turn out just fine” because you were smacked, you turned out “just fine” IN SPITE of it.
I also wouldn’t call someone who thinks violence against children is okay “just fine” but.. Y’know.
And what especially bothers me with spanking is when parents say they do it out of love or hug and kiss their children immediately afterward to “reinforce unconditional love” or whatever bullshit.
I’m looking at this article on “The Biblical Approach to Spanking” (wtf) and it says right here, “Some of the most intimate, touching moments I ever had with my kids were right after exercising discipline.” That is sad sad sad and incredibly disgusting.
When you spank a child (even if you think it won’t be physically permanent) and call it love, when you hit a child then say you love them, you teach the child that it is okay for a person to hurt you, and that it is all a part of true love. And it’s not it’s not it’s not it’s not! And children don’t understand that!
There are dozens of better ways to discipline children besides using your physical power to scare them!
radical feminism makes you think about things. it challenges you to rethink everything you have been taught. it’s kind of like unravelling a proven true conspiracy theory about your own life which can be overwhelming but truly rewarding.
it’s not meant to be apologetic, submissive and comfortable. that’s why men hate it.
Being sick in Elementary:Yay home from school chicken noodle soup and movies
Being sick in high school:OH MY GOSH I'M GOING TO MISS A MATH NOTE AND THEN GET BEHIND IN ENGLISH AND THEN I'LL HAVE LATE MARKS OFF MY PRESENTATION AND I HAVE TO GO TO SCHOOL BECAUSE I'M GOING TO FAIL EVERYTHING AND DIE ALONE UNEDUCATED AND OLD AND NOT KNOWING HOW TO GRAPH A PARABOLA
Sooo… I watched the latest ep of Outlander. You remember, that show I need to remove my feminist glasses not to cringe at everytime. Yeah… In episode 8 I cringed so hard, several times. I just… I can’t believe… Ok. I can’t pinpoint it, but I was uncomfortable with Jamie/Claire’s relationship the entire episode. I mean, you go from last second arranged marriage to lovey dovey lovebirds. How did that happen? Because they talked a lot on their wedding night? Because they’re “compatible” in bed? Because there has never been a love like theirs? Because they were destined to be??? AM I WATCHING A DISNEY MOVIE???
I don’t know how to talk about the rape scenes, I feel like I don’t have the tools to appropriately analyze or critizes them. All I can say is… There’s already such a strong theme (?) of her sexuality being exploited and the sexual objectification of Claire is screaming in our faces, so I was “looking forward” to seeing her actively defend herself and react to this treatment. But… *sigh* After the first scene we get to see her in shock. Yes, that makes sense, she was just raped (or almost raped?) and has just killed a man for the first time. But then… Nothing. She’s angry, but not at the man who tried to rape her. No, no. She is mad at herself for forgetting The Plan. Omfg WHAT. We’re not even given a proper scene with her and Jamie were they talk about what just happened. Are you kidding me??? I swear, if this gets swept under the rugg because of the Grand Saving at Fort William I WILL QUIT THIS SHOW. Not an entire army of kilt draped highlanders could save such a blunder.
