I am incredibly agitated by gay men who feel the need to constantly pontificate on their hatred for vagina. Just because you’re not into it doesn’t mean that it’s disgusting. There is no collective vagina, as it would seem from the way gay men rant about hating “pussy.” No two vaginas are the same. You aren’t cute. You aren’t funny. Stop being a misogynistic fuckwad.
And guess where you came from, Mr. I-hate-Pussy? A VAGINA! So get over it.
I agree with you inaproverbialsense!
I’m a feminist but I’m not feminine. I don’t care to be feminine either.
Deal with it.
(I’m so fucking tired of “feminists” trying to police my gender)
Hey now honey (said with love not condescension), I don’t know who is gender policing you but you need to tell them bitches to back the fuck off! Be who you want to be and don’t worry about what other haters think.
Billie Joe Armstrong (via enchantingwords)
As I am listening to him right now, this is beautifully apropos!
- Eddie: I mean, Christ, I like a drink but I ain't out on the beer every night, or screwin' other women, or... yeah, and I've never once raised me hand at ya. Ever! Or the kids.
- Rita: Christ.
- Eddie: What? Why're you lookin' like that?
- Rita: You're a saint now, is that what you're telling me Eddie? You're a bleedin' saint? Could you give us an even break? That is as it should be - Jesus, Eddie! What d'you think this strike's all been about eh? Yeah no, actually you're right, you don't go on the drink, do you, you don't gamble, you join in with the kids, you don't knock us about - oh, lucky me! For Christ's sake Eddie, that's as it should be! You try and understand that. Rights, not privileges, it's that easy. It really bloody is.
The feminist movement can ideally be characterized by three waves of advocacy that spanned over fifty years. The first wave began in the late 19th century with the Seneca Falls Convention. The second wave occurred in the 1960s, in alliance with civil rights and anti-war movements. During the third wave, in the mid-90s, the worldwide web and popular culture were used to embrace female identity and sexuality, ultimately breaking down barriers of society.
Actually there is a huge movement within Feminism to strike down the notion that Feminism can be categorized into three waves. I encourage you to read a book called No Permanent Waves by Hewitt. But what it basically says is that there is PLENTY of wonderful, meaningful, and successful things happening in between the waves, or that don’t generally fit into what the waves were “about” and are therefore left out of the discussion when people use the wave metaphor. Also, Breaking the Wave by Laughlin and Castledine is also really good for this kind of argument. :)
Well, to confess to my followers (in case you don’t actually know me) I have been very very depressed for some time now. This depression has just cost me my second job. Well, I had a good talk with my mom this morning (which is weird) and we decided that self-help books, and her paying for a therapist, would be a good next step.
I looked around and got two books that would not only appeal to me, but really interest me. So, I will be giving updates on how this goes.
The first book I got is “Put your big girl panties on and deal with it” (the no nonsense guide to getting what you want) by Roz Van Meter
The second is “Taming your inner Gremlin- a surprisingly simple method for getting out of your own way” by Rick Carson
Let’s see how this goes! :)
