Holy shit where does this come from?
[Black and white picture of Black Transwomen protesting, carrying signs that say “Money for hormones, not war!”, “We also have rights!”, and “Trans Rights Now!”]
The International Action Center (IAC) is an anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist, anti-war organization founded in 1992. This photo was likely taken during one of their ‘Trans Day of Action’. The background resembles Union Square so I’m assuming this is in NYC.
I backtraced the image but had no luck finding the source.
This is a real fact. Not something tumblr made up.
She said ‘I really can’t stay’
And he said ‘baby, it’s cold outside let me lend you a jacket and give you a ride home’ because he wasn’t a fucking creep
this is my least favorite thing ever
I’ll send a storm
to capture your heart
and bring you home.
Paul Elam, the author of the above quote and one of the major voices of the men’s rights activism movement, will be featured on 20/20 today (Friday, October 18) at 10pm Eastern on ABC.
Watch it! Or don’t. Just remember that men’s rights has nothing to do with advocating for men and everything to do with heartless misogyny and advocating violence against women (and anyone else who is seen as contributing to a culture where men are brutally oppressed by a feminist shadow conspiracy).
I’ve actually been working on a post about this guy and his contributions to the MRA movement for, like, forever, and I just get too fucking frustrated and disgusted to finish it, so I’m just gonna add some more quotes and context:
and from here on out, should I be called to sit on the jury for a rape trial, I publicly vow to find all accused rapists guilty even in the absolute absence of all evidence of his guilt
He wouldn’t be allowed to sit on the jury though, thank god. Claiming someone is guilty or not guilty before you’ve witnessed the trial gets you cut.
What absolute scum. That 20/20 thing has gotta be like… “look at this fucking misogynist.”
literally kill this man
Let him rot in an oubliette somewhere.
Yes Means Yes blog: “visions of female sexual power & a world without rape”
Parents, siblings, carers, cousins, teachers, tutors, mentors, aunts, uncles, etc, of young children: we have a chance to mold the gender relations of the future.
This is my son, Chester, who is nearly 4. He was invited to his friend Chloe’s birthday party today, the theme was prince and princesses. He asked if he could go as Sleeping Beauty, so I bought him a dress and put a cute little clip in his hair.
We arrived at the party to the following comments from the adults present:
“Oh that is just cruel.”
"Why did you make him wear a dress?"
"Poor little man, what’s your mummy playing at?"
"He’s going to hate you when he grows up."
"No way I’d let my son dress like a girl."
The fact is, Chester is almost completely gender neutral. I let him wear what he wants, be it boys or girls clothes, and he plays with whatever toys he likes. This usually involves him holding tea parties while wearing his pink Minnie Mouse top, jeans and a tiara. The guests are more often than not a mixture of Winnie The Pooh characters, dinosaurs, Barbie, Dora and solders, and they’re usually transported in his favorite fire engine.
When my husband arrived at the party later on, he was subjected to endless ridicule from the other dad’s present about how I must keep his balls in my back pocket because otherwise he would have put his foot down and not allowed Chester out like that. Oh, and by the way, our other son dressed as Ariel. When my husband pointed out that the boys were happy, and the mother of the birthday child made a point of saying how wonderful she thought it was that we allowed them freedom of choice and expression, they then stopped talking about it to our faces and started muttering about us behind our backs.
Interestingly enough, not a single child said a word about their choice of costumes, other than to compliment Chester on his new dress.
Britney Spears invented anime in 2007 for her music video, Break the Ice, from her Blackout album. Anime is an animation style that exaggerates the size of the eyes and typically only represents the nose through its shadow. This animation style became incredibly popular in Japan, in part because the nation wasn’t large enough to provide the studio space required to create live-action films. Popular anime films include My Neighbor Totoro, Pokemon: The First Movie, and The Animatrix.
Britney Spears did not invente anime for shit you idiot. It was created in the 1980s, please shut the fuck up.no im pretty sure britney spears created anime she was actually a huge inspiration for the anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion look it up
Fun fact: the first “anime” animation was created in 1907 and was called “Katsudo Shashin”. It’s about 3 seconds long of a boy in a sailor uniform writing on a chalkboard.
Besides, anime was around a LOT longer than what Britney created. :/ Do your research on the history of anime.
no britney’s was the first
If you seriously say that fucking Britney Spears invented anime, you need to get other internet connection besides tumblr and whitegirlsarealwaysright.com because I think that’s where you are getting your dumb-ass information.
britney spears invented anime and in fact founded japan
surprising i know
There are entire communities and social groups and experiences, stories, memories, etc in “white” countries without any white people too.
I long time ago I wrote a high school drama type of serial story about a social group that was mostly East Asian characters and one white character. I based it on my own HS experiences and people I knew. A lot of people liked it. But I showed it to a white friend of mine online, and she said she didn’t like it. I asked why, and she said it was “unrealistic” and racist. I asked why it was racist, and she said because most of the characters were Asian, there was only one white character and he was a side character, and she couldn’t associate with any of the mains because they weren’t white. My response was “turn on the television, welcome to my life.”
She said that was different though. That’s “realistic” and everybody can understand those characters. Even though my story wasn’t really any different except it was Asian people having teen drama, it was “unrealistic” because we all know social groups of Asian people don’t exist, and it’s racist because when you have mostly non-white people in a story, then it’s weird and strange, and white people are the “every person” who everybody can associate with, but non-white people are niche.
totalitarian dystopian future lit is like “what if the government got so powerful that all the bad stuff that’s already happening ALSO HAPPENED TO WHITE PEOPLE?”
FUCKING THANK YOU
