And now Klaus is apparently running off to go and save Sunny. In the books of course it is Violet, but I know that Hollywood prefers its female actresses to do very little.

just to recap all the things i have seen

Black women are ok as long as they are on board with you 100%, if they even smell like they aren’t, it’s ok to wish death on them or threaten to kill them or feel delighted in violence against them no matter the situation (and mention her Blackness as part of the reason why you enjoyed seeing it.). Oh and deny a little Black girl’s rape,some social justice causes are more important than others. I mean, we should cut these guys a break…they’ve already contributed to caring about Black women and girls by reblogging Lupita gifs and imagery…what more could you ask for!?

You have to be the right kind of rape victim in order to not have any supportive or kind posts dedicated to your bravery in outing your rapist. If your politics don’t align with theirs,be sure to make several comments that suggests she deserves it, pretend you’re “raising awareness” by giving out warnings via reblogging empathetic,supportive posts about  outing her rapist. Then say you care about “ALL survivors/victims”,while abusing and mocking one.

Sexual harassment is OK because some women said so. That’s how it works. Don’t like being called a bitch in bed? Well some women like it therefore men are allowed to call you a bitch in bed it’s in the constitution look it up. What is this consent and boundaries you speak of? Dontcha know that once one woman consents or internalizes something,we all have to accept that as a part of our lives and deal with it? We are just one vessel, not individuals, if one agrees,we all agree!

Don’t talk over sex-workers if you’re not a sex worker, but it’s ok for them to talk over exited women all day,everyday, question their history in the industry and try to depict them as deceitful,liars,and even privileged. Call them the misogynists for pointing out the misogyny they experienced from the industry.

What the hell is Feminism about anyway? At this point it’s just about saying the right things or else you’ll get the hurt put on you by loudmouthed brats with bad attitudes and too much time on their hands. And cosigning every patriarchal thing because a few women “like it” despite the cries of women who don’t and have suffered because of it. This place is gross and toxic. This is why I don’t want to associate myself with the word Feminist,not out of some internalized misogyny, but because misogyny is now defined as Feminism. Like,what’s the fucking point? For real.

…I have often felt invisible as a lesbian. I have felt my identity as a feminist threatening to some, welcome to others; but my identity as a lesbian is something that many would prefer not to know about. And this experience has reminded me of what I should never have let myself forget: that invisibility is not just a matter of being told to keep your private life private; it’s the attempt to fragment you, to prevent you from integrating love and work and feelings and ideas, with the empowerment that that can bring.

I’m not talking only about this community. There are many places, including Women’s Studies programs, where this fragmentation goes on. The basis for dialogue and discussion remains heterosexual, while perhaps a section of the reading list or a single class period is supposed to “include” lesbian experience and thought. In an almost identical way, the experience and thought of women of color is relegated to a special section, added as an afterthought, while the central discourse remains unrelentingly white, usually middle-class in its assumptions and priorities.

Bihet women using abusive relationships as a derail when lesbians talk about het privilege like men using male rape victims as a derail when women try to talk about male violence.

why is the female hero so often tomboyish

why cant there just be one like oops i chipped my barbie pink nail polish while brutally killing an entire armada of time traveling ninja pirates

with my hair curler

yeah that’s just what girls need, more gender roles shoved down their throats in media. also, damn, are most female heroines in media really what you consider “tomboyish”? really? really? you are a little obsessed with gender roles if you think most heroines we have now are masculine enough to be considered tomboys. and femme fatales? the biggest action female trope of all time? you’ve never seen those? really? this post is embarrassing. feel embarrassed. 

Reblogging for commentary

Seriously gender nonconforming women are basically nonexistent in media and even this isn’t enough for some people wtf

monosexuals:

Can someone give me an actual example of a female hero who is portrayed as a “tomboy”?
 Literally every female hero is hyper feminine.
