just a few of the signs we made today for our rally on april 24 starting at 8:30AM! thanks to everyone who came out.
apparently there was someone on campus last week protesting against Jews and gays.
I’m not sure what they were protesting. Our control of academia? Our continued existence despite their best efforts? Our stunning good looks?
"Condoms don’t work."
"Your first time is supposed to hurt."
"It’s not really sex if there’s no penetration."
"Girls don’t masturbate."
Ellen Page & Laverne Cox | GLAAD Media Awards 2014
Ellen Page is a tiny gumshoe detective working to expose a ring of corrupt politicians! Laverne Cox is the charismatic club hostess who gives her the inside scoop on all of her cases! Can they put aside their torrid romantic past to secure a statuette full of top-secret microfilm?
Coming this Christmas: TINY DETECTIVE.
Why can’t there be a male hooter’s equivalent where male servers are shirtless and highly sexualized for their bodies and looks
Male Strip clubs. You’re thinking of male strip clubs.
No. Not a male strip club. A strip club is a strip club. I want a place called Cahones where waiters wear Speedos and are forced to stuff if they don’t fill out their uniform well enough. I want them to giggle for my tips. I want it to be so normalised and engrained in our culture that women bring their daughters there for lunch (because whaaaaaat the wings are good! Geeze sensitive much?) where they’ll give playful little nudges like, “Wouldn’t mind if you dad had those. Heh heh heh.” that their daughters don’t even understand but will absorb and start to assume is just the normal way grown up women talk about grown up men. I want to playfully ask my waiter if I can have extra nuts on my salad and for him to swat my arm with an Oh, you because he knows if he doesn’t his manager will yell at him. I want other men to pretend to like going there so I think they’re cool. I want to go to Cahones during my lunch break at work and when I come back and tell the other women in the office where I went they chuckle slightly and the men around us suddenly feel self conscious and they don’t know why.
listen, your tv show/manga/anime/movie/book isn’t feminist unless it is explicitly beyond a shadow of a doubt feminist
a piece of media showing not-shitty female characters or any semblance of feminist ideals isn’t an indicator of a feminist creation, it’s just an indicator of the slight shift in social perceptions.
I was SHOCKED at how unfeminist that movie was after I saw how much people on tumblr were gushing over it. It’s a great monster movie, but trash if you want something feminist. One female character who knows how to fight does not a feminist film make.
