straight people couldn’t last a day of Real, Actual Heterophobia. they can’t read a joke made at their expense without kicking up a fuss and resorting to queerphobic behaviours, can you imagine what they’d do if heterophobia began actually affecting their lives outside of a small subsection of a fucking website
Photoshopping does more than alter our sense of body image in terms of weight. It also portrays false ideals of skin pigment.
This was in my psychology book. I thought it might be useful to those who can’t think if gender-neutral terms.
Thank you! You have no idea how long I’ve been waiting for some stranger to come around and tell me their opinion on a skill I’ve been perfecting for years! Especially a stranger who has barely any idea what I look like without makeup, seeing is I don’t post my nude face on the internet!
You have no idea how excited I get when someone says "Hey gurl! I know you love cosmetics, you apply them very well after years of study and practice, and it’s a form of self expression, and I know you didn’t ask me, but… all that’s a fucking waste :D"
When you tell someone who chooses to wear cosmetics almost daily that they look “way” better, you’re not being a nice person. You’re telling them that they have bad taste, bad aesthetics, poor perception. It’s like me going into someones bedroom and telling them it looked way better before they decorated it, when they acquired a lot of specific decor, and they’ve been developing the aesthetic I see before me for years.
If you want to tell someone that you think they look nice without makeup, don’t tell them one is better or worse. You have a friend, a girlfriend, a mother, whatever… and you see them without their makeup, just tell them they’re pretty or that their skin is nice.
And don’t tell people they don’t need makeup. You’re assuming you know what their needs are or their personal goals. You can tell them that you’re accepting of them with or without, or just don’t say anything at all. (**I learned this from my boyfriend :3)
Especially not to strangers on the internet
What a cunt. Don’t be such a bitch and take the fucking compliment. They could have not tried to compliment you at all. If you throw a bitch fit when someone says something nice, no one will ever want to again if you’re gonna be a difficult twat.
Wow, so I’m a cunt, a bitch, AND a twat because I’m not suped that some stranger has the audacity to tell me I look good one way or another. Comments on MY appearance are not some fucking commodity that I trip over myself to get to. The shit other people have to say about my choices regarding my aesthetic doesn’t validate my existence.
You’re not gonna sit here and tell me what’s a compliment and what I should be grateful for you dumb ass weak ass bitch
Stay in your lane, clearly commentary and original posts are not your strong points, stick to reblogging gifs of other weak bitches having pillow fights and photos with dumb writing over them because really I’m too fucking kawaii for this shit, really.
I promise you, I am not the one.

Let’s take a moment to talk about this. I mean, because first off, “Tell cars not to hit kids.” Well, yeah, we do that all the fucking time, idiot. Ever seen signs like these?
We have classes and signs and laws about it, and people are constantly reminded. So your argument only works if we put up signs everywhere reminding assholes not to rape. But you’d rather talk about how rape victims have it coming to them.
But the dumbest part of this crap? Roads exist for cars to drive on. Children need to be careful to cross the street because they’re entering into an environment that exists specifically for something that is dangerous to them. The only way this shit is a valid comparison is if you think that bars, parties, and the world in general exists specifically for men to have sex with women. And I gotta break it to the guys who support this stupidity- your dicks are not that important. So knock off this bullshit and stop excusing rapists.
- calling the legitimate anger of oppressed people “drama” or “hate”
- referring to allocation of human rights as simply “politics”
- referring to basic human empathy as “political correctness”
- the childlike refusal to admit mistakes and throwing a literal tantrum
- "it’s just my opinion"
people are fine calling other people “they/their” when they don’t know their gender but when someone says they WANT those pronouns suddenly it’s too hard
and boom goes the dynamite
This article, about men who desperately want to become fathers and the horrible bitches who won’t bear their offspring on demand, is like a case study in privileged entitlement. If it weren’t so painful, it would be laughable to read, for example, Neil Kirwan—a man married to a woman not ready to have children because she was just made partner at her job—asserting, “We’re in an ideal position to have kids. Financially secure—we’ve even got a four-wheel drive family car,” as if both of them wanting children isn’t required before they are genuinely in “an ideal position to have kids.”
What most struck me is that an article sympathetically presenting coercive and presumptuous wannabe dads even exists at all. Our culture is rife with negative narratives about baby-obsessed women who will go to any length to become a mother, even “trapping” men by “getting themselves pregnant.” No one writes delightful articles about how charming their desperation is, intimating that every man should be so lucky to have a good woman willing to bear children for him, and any man who denies the fulfillment of a wannabe mommy’s dream to become a parent is a selfish jerk who defies the very laws of nature."
the consequences of committing rape need to be a hundred times more serious, make rapists and people with rape fantasies feel uncomfortable and frightened to exist in society, marginalise them, not us.

BUT WAIT THOUGH.
how you gonna put rihanna in between miley cyrus and justin timberlake??
especially when the clip of rihanna in question is her video for pour it up, where there are LITERALLY NO MEN IN THE VIDEO? even the dollar bills she throws have her face on them?????
how are you gonna include rihanna for twerking, but exclude selena gomez for shitting on desi women, brooke candy and iggy azealia for appropriating black culture, lily allen for demonizing women of color (which in the clip you showed of miley, she was doing? she was smacking the ass of a dancer of color)
white feminists are so quick to shout OPPRESSION OF WOMEN! when their fellow woman is being “slut-shamed” (can we just not use that term anymore? high school is over. lets cut the cutesy bs and call it what it is: misogyny) but continually ignore their own racism (and more often than not cissexism/transphobia — we’re not gonna talk about how rad it is to see a transwoman playing a transwoman? oh wait she’s not a part of your shitty white cis club so who cares???)
we can criticize rihanna about many things, but her twerking in her music video is LAST thing we should be talking about — especially when rihanna isn’t “objectifying herself” nor is she catering to any male gaze nor appropriating black culture (because i mean helloooo she’s black??)
ugh white feminists i stfg
i made a thing
