IF HER BRA MATCHES HER PANTIES THEN CONGRATS YOU’RE GETTING LAID

(via choosepositivity)

“These are forms of male aggression that only women see. But even when men are afforded a front seat to harassment, they don’t always have the correct vantage point for recognizing the subtlety of its operation. Four years before the murders, I was sitting in a bar in Washington, D.C. with a male friend. Another young woman was alone at the bar when an older man scooted next to her. He was aggressive, wasted, and sitting too close, but she smiled curtly at his ramblings and laughed softly at his jokes as she patiently downed her drink. ‘Why is she humoring him?’ my friend asked me. ‘You would never do that.’ I was too embarrassed to say: ‘Because he looks scary’ and ‘I do it all the time.’

Women who have experienced this can recognize that placating these men is a rational choice, a form of self-defense to protect against setting off an aggressor. But to male bystanders, it often looks like a warm welcome, and that helps to shift blame in the public eye from the harasser and onto his target, who’s failed to respond with the type of masculine bravado that men more easily recognize.”

The scariest part about Anita Sarkeesian being threatened so viciously is that when you get into feminism, you realise that Sarkeesian is actually pretty mellow, feminism wise. In her videos she always stresses that while she’s very critical about certain aspects of the medium, you can still enjoy it even if you are aware of those problematic aspects. Her videos literally compose of her just pointing out the most obvious problematic stuff and saying “that’s quite sexist isn’t it?”

missvoltairine:

what concerns me about Anita Sarkeesian et al is that there is so little, basically no room for women to be human in publicity-based industries like this.

You bring up the harassment that Sarkeesian gets and people will say: “Well but I feel like she cherry-picks information and one time she used art that she didn’t have the rights to in a video” and it’s like…………….. that should be a completely separate issue from someone being driven out of their industry/job/home/etc by constant, scary misogynist harassment. 

Like, I think it was sketchy that Anita Sarkeesian used artwork by some fan artist without getting the rights to it. You know what I think should happen? I think she should apologize and pay the artist. You know what leaves no room for her to do that? CONSTANT FUCKING DEATH AND RAPE THREATS. Go figure.

no one’s saying it’s bad that jon stewart is telling people about racism, it’s not bad that white people are hearing jon stewart say it as a white person, but it is worth criticizing and thinking critically about the implications of it. and it is important to be bringing up the pattern of white people only ever trusting the supposedly “unbiased” white man talk about / validate the notion that poc are experiencing racism. just like we should be critical of how some people exclusively trust (especially white) men taking feminist perspectives because they assume it’s objective and factual from a man and irrational and unreasonable from women..

Exactly!

It’s not that he shouldn’t speak about it. It’s that he needs to let people know that this is a conversation he’s apart of (not the creator of), a conversation that black people have very unique and important perspectives to contribute. White viewers of his need to see that black people are not ignorant and are credible sources of information, among a number of other stereotypes that keep black people excluded from conversations about them.

Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.

I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open.

I love every aspect of this.

NO you guys don’t understand, the entire book is like this. They tried to cram in all sorts of representation of different races and the art is gorgeous and it’s GREAT! The picture for a spellcaster is a female human who is wearing BAGGY, NON-SEXUALIZED CLOTHING AND NO MAKEUP because she’s in a dungeon, she doesn’t have time to do her hair cmon.
Also this:


You know, this makes D&D more accessible to me. I tried to play. I tried to play with a bunch of white dudes and I just couldn’t. I just couldn’t handle all the male fuckery

OMG ALL THE ABOVE COMMENTARY MAKES ME SO HAPPY
