a restaurant in my hometown got a review that said the servers should “show some skin” so the owner added a potato skin special to the menu and all the proceeds from the special go to the west virginia foundation for rape information services (x)

That’s exactly the appropriate response.

Today my husband told me he can’t wait to have a baby with me..
And it turned me on?? I guess I can’t wait either haha. It was such a romantic conversation too. Is this how it goes for every couple (who actually plans it) ?? I think we’ll make good parents when the time comes.

But no babies yet.

I’ve been thinking about it and I think Marvel and DC are refusing to make movies with female protagonists and are still throwing in a bunch of sexist lines and the same cliche scene of guy wakes up, doesn’t remember girl’s name, kicks her out.. is because they’re trying to please the fans they already have. It’s always been a ‘guy thing’ to like comics and not care too much about sexist slurs and women who are fully dressed.. sure, more and more women are joining their fan club but is it really enough to risk making a female-lead movie? a movie that as many guys MIGHT NOT go see? a movie that we are going to pick apart and search for a bad sexist joke?? Idk. and also.. all these movies are coming from comics that were made in a pretty sexist driven time.. so of course the themes are going to be a little sketchy, the jokes are going to be more sexual than any forward thinking person (not female) would be uncomfortable with and about 10 male characters to 1 female (which is funny because there are more of us in the real world than there are guys.. but hey its fantasy)

I still enjoy the movies. I follow along with the avengers. I love batman and superman. i might be 50 before they decide to make a real girl super hero who isn’t just around for being hot and straight forward. Has no one else noticed that “strong” female characters usually mean incredibly curvy, not smiley, straight forward women who are usually angry or easily ticked off? agh„ i’m going off topic.

just saying. marvel and dc are still catching up with the times. I think they have to make movies out of everything thats the most popular right now, and unfortunately thats not women being awesome the way women define awesome.

marvel avengers comics feminism not really judging just thinking writing

After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.

BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?

BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?

The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

guns… literally more important than the lives of women in the state of loveable mormons

^^ Gonna make a comment there tho can you maybe not fling blame at Mormons for this Utah isn’t 100% Mormon thanks

love, an ex-mormon
