CAN I JUST FUCKING SAY SOMETHING ABOUT SOMETHING PLEASE

PATRIARCHY DOES FUCKING EXIST AND IT EXISTS IN A VERY PLAIN AND SIMPLE MANNER: MEN, STRAIGHT OR GAY, ARE THE DOMINANTS AND WOMEN ARE OBJECTS OF THIS DOMINATION

DON’T YOU FUCKING DARE TELL ME IT DOESN’T EXIST

i was in town the other day minding my own business and quite a big group of dudes walked past me and one of them grabbed my fucking ass and they all started cheering and like running off. these were fully grown men, like in their 30s maybe, and one of them at the back was like “haha dont worry love he’s gay!” THIS IS THE SECOND TIME THIS HAS HAPPENED TO ME IN A MONTH

can i just fucking point out what the fuck that translates to

he’s allowed to invade your personal space because he’s not gonna stick his dick in you

again lets translate that some more

he’s a man and he has the inherent right to dominate your body regardless of his intentions

like WHO THE FUCK? WHAT THE FUCK? i don’t give a SHIT if he’s gay or if he’s straight or he’s fucking asexual you don’t fucking touch a woman unprovoked, ever because thats an assertion of patriarchal values that promote the objectification of the female body. i am not an object that ANYONE can touch i’m my own fucking person and you keep your hands OFF regardless of who you are

THIS IS THE COMMON CONSENSUS THOUGH THAT A WOMAN’S BODY IS ESSENTIALLY A TOY FOR MEN TO BAIT FOR ENTERTAINMENT. BEING GAY MAKES NO FUCK OF A DIFFERENCE AND PRETENDING THIS IS SEPARATE FROM WOMEN’S ISSUES IS INCREDIBLY IGNORANT.

you’re either an advocate for women’s rights or you’re not, and if you have convinced yourself that a dude is okay to touch a woman unprovoked based on his intentions/sexuality, in fact, if you have convinced yourself that anyone is okay to touch a woman (including straight girls and lesbians) then you need to do some fucking reevaluating buddy

it won’t be fucking tolerated

Let me talk to you about books.

Specifically, one book. This book.

This book should be a best seller. This book should be required reading for graduating from high school. Before you get that diploma, you read this book.

This book deals with debunking “Neurosexism,” which is a very fancy term for all of that evolutionary psychology bullshit that people spill about those “brain differences” between boys and girls.

This book debunks such myths as:

  • Boys are better at math than girls
  • Women make crappy lawyers/business CEOs/etc, as their brains are not cut out for aggression.
  • Men make crappy counselors/primary school teachers/primary parents/etc, as their brains are not cut out for empathy.
  • MEN ARE BUILT FOR GOING OUT AND HUNTING WHILE WOMEN ARE BUILT FOR STAYING HOME AND BABYMAKING IT’S NOT SEXISM IT’S JUST BIOLOGY
  • And many other such myths.

Furthermore, this book covers topics such as: 

  • Neurosexism and gender perceptions in multiple races (as this is not a singularly white experience, just as the western world isn’t a singularly white experience)
  • Sex discrimination in the workplace, and how women are (or, more often, are not) allowed to behave
  • How science is used (badly) to support many of these claims
  • Experiences of trans people, both through interviews and empirical studies.

AND FINALLY - It is all brilliantly researched, cited, compiled - and it’s easy to read! Cordelia Fine actually manages to be funny while writing this, which I think is important, because it makes all of this information infinitely accessible.

Delusions of Gender has reinforced what Oberlin taught me: The gender binary is stupid and arbitrary, and dangerous. And it is a self-perpetuating bias that needs to be addressed to be overcome.

So adding this to my to-read list.

And it’s currently available on Kindle for $3.34.

I have been meaning to pick this book up FOREVER and it is, indeed, only $3.34 on Kindle today. (I’m trying to cut back on Amazon purchases because of the way they treat publishers and authors and warehouse workers BUT I have only heard great things about this book, and it’s on Kindle sale, so.)

What is cultural appropriation?

It’s difficult to talk about appropriation because it is deeply tied to racial representation in fiction, and I can’t speak of one without the other. A common definition is: the adoption of some specific elements of one culture by a different cultural group. The culture that borrows and appropriates is usually dominant over the one that is borrowed from. Examples include high-class Europeans having foreign art objects, and people who get hanzi tattoos with grammar mistakes or just because they “look cool”. But it extends to far more than that. It is the attitude that suggests non-white cultures are to be shared, delighted in, and open to all to use as influences or create characters. It is blackface, yellowface, redface, brownface, that rob minorities of the right to express their stories, the way they want, and reduces them to a footnote. It is what leads certain writers to say “but everyone has the right to a story!”

Proof. Twitter.

Just because it sells doesn’t necessarily mean it’s good. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

I didn’t mention anything about quality, only sales figures.

But since you brought it up, I’ll note that the first issue has received the highest marks across the board. ;)

This is fantastic. I love it. There are guys out there who are so threatened by the prospect of a female-led title doing well that when it does do well their response is “well it’s probably not any good.”

Fun fact: throughout the bulk of Western history, commercial success was considered a mark of quality for a piece of art. Disdain for commercial success curiously came into vogue in Western critical circles at about the same time that female creators started making major inroads in producing commercially successful art and literature - and many historians believe that this is no coincidence.

In other words, dismissing commercially successful works on the grounds that commercial success is no measure of quality is not merely a typical response to works by female creators: it has been argued that the very notion of holding commercially successful works in disdain simply for the fact of that success was, itself, invented in order to shift the goalposts and keep women out of the “real artists” club.

I still need to read this series so bad

I love how as soon as someone mentions that, in contrast to what comic bros claim, a WoC-centric title that doesn’t cater to straight white cis men is selling incredibly well, all of a sudden they’re concerned with whether or not the comic is “good” or “quality”. LMFAO ok.

Formatting on Tumblr blows. So, here’s a cheatsheet. Simply go to reblog this and click on HTML. Then, copy and paste the sections you need. There are links to symbols and generators you can use as well (particularly for header text). “br /” is used for keeping text one line under what was previously written (HEADER #1) while p creates new paragraphs with a clear line between (HEADER #2). If you write too much in the pre (grey background), it will add a scrollbar. Here’s a link to all the code used because it’s gonna look weird reblogged.

“In English,” Professor Austin said, “a double negative forms a positive. However, in some languages, such as Russian, a double negative remains a negative. But there isn’t a single language, not one, in which a double positive can express a negative.”

A voice from the back of the room piped up, “Yeah, right.”
