I am so done with the internet cya I’m logging off for one hour to cool down
I wonder how short the guy who made this was hahaha
I’m getting Auras and I still have a house to clean, what a fun time!
My mum was asking me to help her come up with a famous quote for a survey yday, and so I was going through my tumblr ‘quotes’ tag and reading them out to her, and like 50% of them were drawn out feminist tirades against the state.
Until feminists are aware of the state’s involvement in protecting patriarchy as a system of power, much in the same way it protects capitalism and racism as systems, feminists will be unable to see why a reform politics, though necessary, is insufficient.
I got an instagram and now I’m gonna have to look hot on the regular, and I don’t think I can handle that responsibility.
It’s time I got instagram, friends.
First kindle purchase: my law mate’s book!
I am really pleased about these heteronormativity posts, like the one about putting eyelashes on pics of animals in love, or on umbrellas or w/e to prove they were heterosexual drawings. I never thought about it that way, I just thought it was misogynistic that they were putting the mascara on the woman because that marked men as default.
I can’t believe I didn’t even notice it, but I am glad that I’m now aware of the nuances of that phenomenon.
Nicki Minaj shining a light on the differences on acceptable sexuality from white women and black women.
Okay drag, Nicki
Honestly can’t wait for the 50 shades movie to normalize the manipulation of lower-level female employees. Can’t wait for the new wave of “consent is sexy” banners on the cover of cosmo. Can’t wait for teen girls to think that a controlling relationship is romantic. Can’t wait for sexualized violence to become increasingly mainstream. And most of all, I can’t wait for BDSM to be labeled a feminist revolution.
Tumblr, are you fucking broken? First you recommend an anti-feminist shitbag I’ve made fun of in the past, and now you’re recommending anti-choice blogs? Whatever you are doing, it’s wrong.
I just.. THIS SENTENCE WILL IGNITE AND FUEL MANY DREAMS
I have scrolled down this about 5 times and it has almost made me cry every time omg
When they panned to Benedict crying, my heart cried
Ok, so I’ve seen this on my dash several times in the past few months, and I’m tired of it: can we maybe NOT take the public struggles and triumphs of a black woman and make it all about a British white guy’s feelings? Like, I’m sorry, her speech wasn’t enough to make your heart cry until you saw Benedict Cumberbatch shedding tears over it? But seriously, if anything should have twisted the knife that Lupita’s speech had jammed into your heart, it was Chiwetel Ejiofor’s expression in the foreground. Compared to the the pain, the pride, the joy on that man’s face…if the white guy crying in the background was what got you, then you weren’t paying attention to what the woman said in the first place.
Boom goes the dynamite
Cumberbatch’s family fortune is from owning slaves and they are actively trying to avoid paying reparations, could he be any more of a hypocrite?
I’m really glad my mum instilled a love of learning and an appreciation of school into me from childhood, so I don’t look back at my school days and cringe at how I failed to take advantage of the cheapest formal education I will ever receive.
