The main problem I have with Men’s Rights Activists is that their name really doesn’t do them justice. They’re Straight Cis White Men’s Rights Activists. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for the inclusion of trans* men in their spaces.
I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign to end the social stigma around black fatherhood. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for better pay and equal career mobility for men of colour. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists actively campaign for more gay men’s rights. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists advise others in their group on how using f*ggot to emasculate men who aren’t part of their cause is alienating and marginalising other MEN.
I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support victims of male rape unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of rape. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support male victims of domestic abuse unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of domestic abuse. Men’s Rights Activists are hypocrites and frauds.
They’re bitter privileged white men who don’t want to campaign for the rights of men — they want to campaign to keep their privilege unchecked and their ability to discriminate against others. If you want to be a real Men’s Rights Activist — be a fucking (intersectional) Feminist. Peace out.
When I was younger, I vowed that I would never have a relationship with another disabled person. Certainly until I was about 17, I was kind of “in the closet” about disability. I knew I had one – heck, I got my first motorised wheelchair when I was 2½ – but I…

if asexual people need to “try” sex before they’re allowed to decide that they’re asexual, then straight men need to try sex with another man before they’re allowed to be straight. oh you’re straight??? well have you ever TRIED having sex with a dude??? no? well then how do you KNOW you’re straight??????????????? you’re just limiting yourself to all the other possibilities out there by calling yourself straight without experiencing them you raging fucking douchewaffle
This is hard for me to post but I feel like it is important.
I remember hating my face and hating my skin and looking at all the girls around me in middle school and on TV and in ads and feeling like I was a monstrosity in comparison. But I remember the first time I realized women plucked their eyebrows. And wore concealer. And foundation. And powder. I felt like I had been lied to about what women look like. After modeling and realizing when photographers asked for no makeup, they really meant the photo on the right. I started realizing that the photo on the right was what was in skincare ads and posted by people claiming in the caption to be wearing no makeup some of the time. The photo on the right is the bare minimum of what we expect women to look like when they wake up in the morning.
Thought this would be of interest to some people, especially since the topic of how women’s faces in video games, comics, etc being depicted as smooth with no lines (even for facial expressions) has come up before. Also, how often women will be drawn with default eyeliner, eyeshadow, lipstick, etc even if there should be no reason for them to wear it because they have been living in the wild, or they’re warrior women who have expressed no interest in it, or etc…
It’s part of how society constructs what women look like in people’s minds; that what we put on to ‘enhance’ appearance end up being part of the default way women are expected to look. Even if the characters are supposed to be “plain” or “practical” in context, they’ll still be drawn as if they’re wearing some base amount of make up, because that’s how we’re conditioned to see women in our imaginations. And stuff like airbrushing, photoshop, and what’s described in the above article also are part of this, and can skew how we perceive what the ‘normal’ or ‘average’ woman is supposed to look like.
“One of the saddest days of my life was when my mother told me Superman did not exist… She thought I was crying because it’s like Santa Claus is not real. I was crying because there was no one coming with enough power to save us.”
i want to talk about kids of color & the superhuman/mutant discourse
this is heartbreaking.
hit me in all the feels.
Wow. Queer people with different opinions and personalities?
Slow down there, friend. Don’t get too carried away. It almost sounds like you’re describing a community of sub-communities, an umbrella group composed of a diverse selection of people, each with individual temperaments, desires, and dispositions.

I am a little worried because my awkwardness actually comes across online
And sometimes I absentmindedly say things and I’m pretty sure people react like this
Bless you I like you and I like your blogs and I wish to reblog all the things and I apologize for being goofy but it comes naturally so eh

Being white means you need to think twice about what you do, say, or wear because of your race.
Being a PoC means you need to think twice about where you live, work, and basically every single major life decision because of your race.
One of these groups got the better end of the deal.
What in the actual world?
Below are screenshots of the situation (picture, innocent commenting and discussion then BAM for no reason a guy gets angry and abusive). I’ve reported him to Facebook. This is a link to the screenshots in an imgur album - http://imgur.com/a/mgjW6.
