Can these fucking porn hipsters who try to convince themselves and other people that what they’re consuming isn’t harmful because it’s not “mainstream” just shut the fuck up and admit they care more about getting off then women’s humanity?
44% of the audience of Guardians of the Galaxy is female and all the speculation states that women went to see it for Chris Pratt’s body. I don’t think that’s fair. Maybe (and this is crazy) they just like kickass movies with space shit and explosions. Maybe women can do things without men being their motivation. Maybe.
I WENT FOR THE TALKING RACCOON MOTHAFUCKAS
shout out to all my sisters who still wear hijab, niqab, and burka every day with all the islamophobia goin on
Hey everyone, look at who I met today!!
I was going to say that Emma Watson could have chosen to address WoC and Lesbians but instead went for men, and what that says about her feminism.
But then she really did that all by herself when she gave another interview stating that
a) Beyoncé is not a feminist
and b) putting emphasis on that being a feminist doesn’t mean to be unpretty and unfeminine (dogwhistle much)
In other words, she’s a racist lesbophobe and you need to stop supporting her.

The Scully Effect
One of the most frustrating aspects of this scarcity is that we know just how significant an influence powerful female, scientist role models can have on young women.
Perhaps the most prominent example of this power has come to be known as the “Scully Effect.” Named for Special Agent Dana Scully, the medical doctor and FBI agent who was one half of the investigative team on “The X-Files”, the Scully Effect accounts for the notable increase in women who pursued careers in science, medicine, and law enforcement as a result of living with Dana Scully over the nine years “The X-Files” ran on Fox.
The show has been off the air for more than a decade. Yet the character of Dana Scully remains a powerful example of how a dynamic female character whose primary pursuit is science—not romantic relationships—can have a lasting impact on our culture.

The rest of the article this is from is a good read:
Less “Big Bang Theory,” More Dana Scully: What It’s Going to Take to Lead More Girls Into Science — Only 25 percent of STEM jobs are held by women. YouTube science sensation Emily Graslie on how we can inspire them with better-quality pop-culture role models.
radical feminism makes you think about things. it challenges you to rethink everything you have been taught. it’s kind of like unravelling a proven true conspiracy theory about your own life which can be overwhelming but truly rewarding.
it’s not meant to be apologetic, submissive and comfortable. that’s why men hate it.
False rape accusations are an anomaly.
True rape accusations are a norm.
You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.
Re-blog now, read later.
"Because 1 in 33 men will be raped in his lifetime, men are 82,000x more likely to be raped than falsely accused of rape. It seems many of us would do well to pay more attention to how rape culture affects us all than be paranoid about false accusers.”
before you call all lgbt people “queer” ask yourself if you would form a feminist club referring to all women as “bitches” and tell women who are uncomfortable with the word “bitch” to just get over it already
Somebody posted these all around school, and now I know what it feels like to be proud of ones school.
