i hate that “LOL SO IF WOMEN ARE EQUAL CAN I PUNCH YOU” shit bc 1 in 3 women are abused
y’all are already punching us
the issue is that we’d like you to stop
I hate how the ‘shitty mum’ trope in tv/film often revolves around a working mother who doesn’t have time to bake cakes for her kids’ school cake days from scratch like it’s so tired and gross.
That is a very patriarchal, misogynistic trope “harmlessly” slipped into quite a lot of movies and other forms or “story telling” and it’s only one way that society enculturates it’s norms
The name of this particular trope is “bad mom who won’t stay at home”
jill filipovic is KILLING IT
when five old men - on the us supreme court - agree that vasectomies and viagra are “religiously” protected medicines that are okay, but birth control is not
I love tumblr because this is virtual proof of how terrified the privileged are of losing their power.
Here, minorities actually have a voice, and in the distance there are muffled cries of cisphobia, misandry, heterophobia, and reverse racism. The priveleged -outside the inconsequential realm of this website - whine because the joke’s on them. They cry because they don’t like being viewed as a single entitiy and “It’s not their fault!”. They retaliate at us for retaliating. “But what about equality?”, they say. They whisper about how feel they’re walking on thin ice, and if they make one wrong move they’ll be attacked.

FIRST STATE TO COMPENSATE EUGENICS VICTIMS
Over a period of 45 years, North Carolina forcibly sterilized 7,600 people it deemed mentally or socially unfit. Now, 39 years since the state’s eugenics program ended in 1974, it will finally make reparations, with lawmakers earmarking $10 million to compensate victims, reports the Wall Street Journal. “No amount that we can afford to pay is enough,” says a state lawmaker. “But this is sufficient for the living victims to know that the state of North Carolina sincerely regrets the injustice that we’ve done to them.”
