girls will be made fun of for literally anything. they can’t even like food establishments without being made fun of by everyone, even supposed feminists. stop making fun of women for arbitrary things, it’s not funny, and it literally only makes girls ashamed of themselves for yet another thing. stop
When I was a teenager, I was very critical of feminism too. I was a white girl, about to grow up into a world of white privilege, and I didn’t see the point. Then, the workplace discrimination started happening, then the sexual harassment, then the assaults, then the catcalls, then the condescension from men who weren’t as smart or accomplished as me, the sports coach who was too friendly, the male mentor with other intentions, the drunk male friend who won’t leave the room after the party so you can sleep, the car horns blaring, the groping: it all started happening at about the age of fifteen. I started realising that there was a large portion of the population to whom I was as good as chattel: I was an object to be acted upon.
I also started realising that I’ve been a female misogynist my whole life, and had a lot of unlearning to do too. Change starts with eliminating the noxious parts of yourself you have internalised during socialisation in a misogynistic culture. Feminism isn’t just about stopping the abuse of women by men, it’s about stopping the abuse we do to ourselves and others by genuinely beginning to believe we deserve to be treated as less than human."
LET ME JUST-
Feminism isn’t just about stopping the abuse of women by men, it’s about stopping the abuse we do to ourselves and others by genuinely beginning to believe we deserve to be treated as less than human.
omfg today in English class we were talking about reading books and some girl shouts ”BOOKS SUCK” and the quietest girl in my class says ”yeah almost as much as you do on the weekends” even the teacher laughed omfg
OH I GET IT YOUNG WOMEN WHO STAY QUIET AND ENJOY READING ARE VASTLY SUPERIOR TO YOUNG WOMEN PRESUMED TO BE SEXUALLY ACTIVE
OH LORD SO FUNNY
THIS IS SO HILARIOUS
THAT STUPID ARROGANT WHORE GOT PUT IN HER PLACE
That is not a feminism I support."
If you attack girls for liking stereotypical feminine things you’re doing this feminist thing all wrong
omg I’m at work and a group of like 13 year old girls come in and order their lattes or whatever and one girl is like can you Instagram this with all our names on it? and her friend is like ya totally and so I may have put a q in the middle of all of their names so they got their coffee and were like “omg what the hell we can’t take a picture of this” Im literally the worst person ever
im still laughing about this they were so mad omg
i once would have laughed at this but it just seems like pointless girl hate
Am I the only girl that thinks feminism is stupid?
the only one
juliebug13, u r so special.
Women against feminism wow how cool and contrary are you man I wish I could be as unique as someone who shits all over a social movement to help her peers oh wait that’s not unique at all and you are giving me a fucking hate tumor
you havent seen anger until youve seen me being forced to write mrs bieber on a cup for some white girl ordering a vanilla bean frap i hate my job
who gives a fuck? this looks like an example of internalized misogyny if you are honestly that angry that a young girl called herself “mrs bieber” WHY DO YOU CARE
Fuck special snowflakes who think like this.
Your ass ain’t fucking special because you don’t wear makeup.
You’re not fucking better than the woman with large breasts who wears tank tops.
You’re a piece of shit because you are putting sexist stereotypes onto other women in some anti-feminine bullshit.If you don’t like it, why’d you comment on it? I think it’s awesome and you’re probably one of the girls up there that wears makeup and shortshorts and tiny tanktops. And most kids today wear makeup because they think they aren’t pretty and need it. So deal with it. And get over yourself.
lemme tell you something: I wear tons of fucking make up. I wear short dresses. I walk around with a face that looks about as fake as it can get outside of a fucking barbie doll. and I like it that way. and, despite what you seem to think, no, it’s not because i think i’m ugly. i just fucking like makeup (and trust, i’ve spent years examining my own motivations and how they’re tied to internalized self-hated, fatphobia and misogyny so don’t EVEN cause you don’t know what you’re talking about).
I also read ravenously; engage in discourse regarding philosphy, art, economics, politics, race, gender, sexuality; make subversive art; and love comics and film and music. I’M A FUCKING PERSON IS WHAT I’M SAYING.
like how fucking deep is this goddamn image when the spine of the book JUST SAYS THE WORD ‘BOOK’.
this kind of bullshit narrative, other than furthering a misogynistic dichotomy that pits women against each other, is also a complete fucking fallacy. A huge majority of average women DON’T DO THIS. you aren’t the lone plain jane in an army of cake-faced, bottle blonde barbies—if you look around, you’ll see that most women just throw on jeans and tops and very little makeup.
I get that this kind of shit is an attempt to fight back against media-made images of what womanhood is supposed to be. I get it. (thought isn’t it interesting that the “weirdo” in the picture is still thin and conventionally attractive??)
but attacking other women who you perceive as being stupid or carbon copies because of their fucking appearance doesn’t fight back against shit. it actually does EXACTLY what the patriarchy wants us to do—engenders more hatred and competition between women.
but you know, whatever, continue to think you’re so goddamn special. i’ll be over here reading AND wearing hot pink lipstick and having a hell of a time doing it.
THIS IS THE BEST FUCKING THING I’VE EVER READ IN THE HISTORY OF EVER
i made a thing
this is a beautiful thing. now watch all the comments prove your point. *le sigh*
What’s wrong with being a fuckbagel? XDD jk… awesome post!
ya dun be a fuckbagel
“I’m a woman and I’m not offended by this, clearly it isn’t sexist!”
wow I didn’t realize you were the singular spokesperson for 3.5 billion people of different ages, races, religions, backgrounds, sexual orientations, social classes, and cultures, I’m so sorry
ALWAYS REBLOG KAT DENNINGS SLAMMING SLUT SHAMING
BAM BAM TURKEY AND HAM
Can someone please explain to me why I haven’t seen any posts by feminists about women who are at fault for continuing the mindset of gender roles so far? If you do know similar posts, please link me, thanks!
What I always read is how men are the ones to blame for, while at the same time making it sound like women are always trying so hard to get rid of gender roles. This I just find so hard to believe for me. So I wonder if anyone has made a post about how women should not dismiss gender roles only when it’s suited for them, or why won’t mothers raise their children without defined gender roles. No, I’m not implying that men aren’t to blame for as well, I just don’t think it’s just men who are doing this (And sadly enough I always get that kind of feeling when I read posts by feminists). But for a lot of them it’s just men who do this.
And if the first thing you think after reading this post is “oh another guy who’s crying over feminism” please refrain from responding then.
It’s called “internalized misogyny” and women are just as guilty of it as men. I’ll go on a hunt through my blog and bookmarks now, but honestly I’m sure you’ll find a heap of info if you google/tumblr/whatever “internalized misogyny”. :)
Feminists do not believe that men are the only ones upholding gender roles. We oppose patriarchy, as opposed to men (although we can joke about misandry as a way of dealing with our irritations with patriarchy and men in general - but that’s another conversation), and unfortunately men and women both subscribe to patriarchal views and values, even though these hurt all genders.
(I’ve just checked and I see that you do follow me, so I am a bit surprised that you haven’t seen me talk about this topic. I am inspired to post more about internalized oppression.)
