I think I’m the only person who doesn’t like the songs from Frozen.
I’ll take it a step further: I loathe all the songs and “Let it Go” can die in a fire.
All I’m saying is why do so many guys freak out at the sight of a wrapped unused tampon but think it’s socially acceptable to… adjust themselves… in public.
Because a blood soaked piece of possibly deadly disease carrying cotton is worse by far than a man grabbing his pants?
Nobody said used pads/tampons weren’t gross, but deadly disease carrying is a bit much, don’t you think? In fact, I believe the contents of the bloody item are not actually blood.
Sometimes I really like tumblr, then I land myself on a blog titled “Women Against Feminism”.
And I know they’re all allowed to have their own view and all, but it’s just????? I want to be paid equally and get the respect I deserve and be a…
I randomly stumbled across this post and had some thoughts.
On revealing clothing:
I don’t know where either of you live, but in the US young women (kindergarten through 12th grade) are the ones that have dress code rules/guidelines/restrictions. Nobody’s ever thought of what to tell young men other than maybe not wearing their pants so low their underwear hangs out. Girls are told that their tank tops must have “sleeves” of a certain thickness and their shorts/dresses must come below their finger tips and their bra straps can’t be visible and if they choose to wear clothing that is revealing anyway they have to wear a cover-up shirt. The justification is that if the girls don’t dress modestly, they will distract their male peers and teachers. People talk about young girls (I’m thinking between six years old and maybe as late as 13) being sexualized, but say nothing of the fact that some of these limitaions only add to the sexualization.
Women should feel comfortable wearing whatever they want. I’m not saying they should be free from the gossip attached to their clothing choices, but they shouldn’t feel unsafe just because they’re not wearing long, unwieldy clothes “for their protection”.
On victim blaming:
Women are accused of “asking for it” when they dare to wear short or revealing clothes. Why does no one point the finger at their male attacker? Shouldn’t he shoulder the responsibility for his actions? Nobody made him do anything. People talk about the woman needing to be responsible for her decision to wear that outfit. Responsibility goes both ways. The man could very well be called out for his lack of control and need for control of others. The problem with victim blaming is that it is currently aimed at the woman while absolving the man of any wrong-doing.
I know there was more to this discussion, but I’ll leave it at this for now.
If you’re a vegan or vegetarian, it would be much appreciated if you wouldnt force your life choices on me. Its not fair because I dont go around telling you that you should eat meat so please dont tell me that I should only eat fruits and veggies. its not my choice to make you eat meat just like…
I gave up meat after a very rotten experience with food poisoning. I’m glad I did, but I certainly wouldn’t push that on anyone. I think thast should be up to ever individual to decide for themselves.
i’m going to get hate for this…. i do believe abby is abusive (mentally and emotionally) but how is calling her fat & heartless going to change anything you’re basically doing the same thing she does
Heartless combined with examples of her behavior is a valid critique. Her weight…not so much.
