Seriously - this girl was betrayed and humiliated by someone she thought she could trust, had her personal life and sex life spread all over the internet, and rebounded to become one of the most famous people in our culture right now. You might say that Kim K and the kardashians are “famous for nothing”, but you have to have some respect for a woman who completely turned that situation on its head and rewrote the script to prioritize her own agency. Our culture doesn’t allow that for too many women, so let’s not forget how impressive that is.

piksies:

are girls still pretending they don’t masturbate?

I dunno, is society still teaching girls that anything related to their genitals is dirty and impure?

One of my least favourite dialogue tropes is when a man tells a woman “you can’t do that” or “I wouldn’t do that if I were you” and she says “why? because I’m a woman and therefore too weak to handle this/can’t take care of myself?” or something to that extent and the guy replies with “no, because everyone who tried that ended up with a bullet in their brain” or something equally reasonable and not gender specific that paints him as the rational not sexist guy and the woman as irrational paranoid feminist who searches for sexism in everything. This whole scenario is built on the idea that sexism is over and women’s fears and suspicions don’t have a leg to stand on. It’s also self-congratulatory pseudofeminism bc it’s supposed to make the viewer/reader/listener feel that in this specific work of fiction women are treated respectfully and as equal with men.

Because I have never taken public transportation without feeling anxious that a man will harrass me or even hurt me. Because I have been harassed on the bus and the train countless times, and when I don’t reply or validate these men I get told “you’re fat anyway” or “you’re a fucking bitch” #yesallwomen

“Men’s rights activists don’t organize marches; they don’t build shelters or raise funds for abused men; they don’t organize prostate cancer-awareness events or campaign against prison rape. What they actually do, when they’re not simply carping in comments online, is target and harass women—from feminist writers and professors to activists—in an attempt to silence them.” White Hot Rage (via sinshine)

“I left liberal feminism, because it doesn’t tell the “male gaze” to fuck off, it FUCKS it. I left liberal feminism, because it told me that I was only powerful if my power satisfied men’s needs, if my power meant being on my knees taking a “Money Shot” while a man, conditioned from the very system that oppresses me, jerks off to my subordination. I left liberal feminism, because it argues in a POST-patriarchal context, telling me that my sexuality is my own, while in fact, males will always own it as long as male dominance is a political, economic, social and cultural reality. Which it presently is.” (via angrywomanistcritic)

A moment of silence for all the female characters i didn’t get to appreciate in the past because of  internalized misogyny.

“Toxic masculinity hurts men, but there’s a big difference between women dealing with the constant threat of being raped, beaten, and killed by the men in their lives, and men not being able to cry.” Robert Jensen (via quoilecanard)
