I think people forget, men do not just benefit from the oppression of women, they are actively oppressing women. The patriarchy is a social system yes, but individual men do choose to uphold it, they’re not doing it by accident
white women of hollywood, reducing japan and japanese culture to cupcakes, sexy ”costumes” and submissive sex-kittens since god knows when
Why can’t there be a male hooter’s equivalent where male servers are shirtless and highly sexualized for their bodies and looks
Male Strip clubs. You’re thinking of male strip clubs.
No. Not a male strip club. A strip club is a strip club. I want a place called Cahones where waiters wear Speedos and are forced to stuff if they don’t fill out their uniform well enough. I want them to giggle for my tips. I want it to be so normalised and engrained in our culture that women bring their daughters there for lunch (because whaaaaaat the wings are good! Geeze sensitive much?) where they’ll give playful little nudges like, “Wouldn’t mind if you dad had those. Heh heh heh.” that their daughters don’t even understand but will absorb and start to assume is just the normal way grown up women talk about grown up men. I want to playfully ask my waiter if I can have extra nuts on my salad and for him to swat my arm with an Oh, you because he knows if he doesn’t his manager will yell at him. I want other men to pretend to like going there so I think they’re cool. I want to go to Cahones during my lunch break at work and when I come back and tell the other women in the office where I went they chuckle slightly and the men around us suddenly feel self conscious and they don’t know why.
please watch avril lavigne’s new video it is so much worse than you are imagining as you are reading this, it is so much worse than anyone could have ever guessed it would be
Anonymous asked: do you think it's okay for feminism to use the raised fist? i’ve read that it’s a symbol of left/solidarity causes and that the Smith/Carlos salute at the Olympics was a human rights salute, but i feel like - just from my life experience - it’s been brought to prominence most by black power groups? and supposedly it has longer roots in assyria, socialism, anti-fascism etc, but that feels like when people bring Braveheart into a discussion about white people wearing dreads.
I agree with your last point, even if it has different roots it’s most strongly associated with black power groups and so I’m very, very wary of seeing it used as a feminist symbol.
I’ve seen people use this as an alternative, which makes a nod to the other design without completely copying it. Do others think this is a good option, or is it still inappropriate?
this is the coolest thing ive seen on this website
Wait what how
what the fuck you mean how? a goddamn computer, that’s how
fuckin think this is some real bullshit like you’re confused as to how someone can hold water and a tiny ass ship are u fuckin’ kidding me
we can only sext if we roleplay as key figures from the cold war
Anonymous asked: I guess that you believe that porn doesn't negatively affect men as well. Giving them unrealistic expectations of their bodies and giving women unrealistic expectations of the male and female body works. Plus there's also violent rough sex where women are in the dominant position. Don't you think that could negatively affect men as well? I've read many accounts where men were sexually assaulted by a woman with a strap on.
I’m sure a lot of men are negatively affected by porn, but they aren’t oppressed by it. The fact that men create an entire industry designed to abuse women’s bodies and then suffer side effects of their domination is not really, you know, a bummer for me.
Anon, are we supposed to feel sorry for the men that end up having unrealistic expectations of women…? In what universe/planet do you think that would be acceptable? Boo hoo, I’m sorry porn has turned you into such a jerkoff? What a fucking copout.
(Also, lol “giving them an unrealistic expectation of their own bodeis” have you watched porn? All you see is penis. The man is hardly ever in the frame.)
Well, by body they mean peen. Doodz can’t compete with porn peen. So they cry into their ice cream at night because of that.
This is especially hilarious when you consider that the large penis ideal is already a male-centric, male-invented obsession that has nothing to do with what feels best for women who have sex with men or works best with our anatomy.
