Why are dudes so fucking concerned about people getting upset about sexism and making statements that start with “men are”
There is literally no social consequence for what you’re alleging is a generalization and the thing is you probably know that already
What is this? I must see it.
It’s called “This Is The End” and it’s about some kind of apocalypse hitting Hollywood. My understanding is that everyone plays some comedic version of themselves. I’m looking pretty forward to seeing Emma Watson kick everyone’s asses.
I’d prefer if they vanished into obscurity. They need help and to be far from the public eye. On top of obvious emotional problems, she’s involved in a really unsettling co-dependent relationship where she’s being further shielded from reality.
Agreed on all counts. You can tell with Amy that she’s more confused and lost than malicious, and the publicity isn’t helping. Samy lying to her is also just going to make her more frightened, confused, and alienated.
The rhetoric on this site regarding Amy Bouzaglo of Amy’s Baking Company fame is unsettling to me but it wasn’t until watching the episode again with my mother that I was able to articulate why.
On some level I understand the initial “crazy bitch” reaction but I really don’t think it’s helpful or okay at all. Watching the episode, what I mostly felt for Amy was concern and sympathy. She is obviously struggling with some extreme emotional issues. Being that filled with rage is a very painful existence and I don’t think that anyone’s ever taught her that it’s okay to make a mistake or be wrong. She is clearly very lonely, scared, and hurting.
I don’t know if the Amy’s Baking Company account is real, but it’s unnecessarily cruel to harass and attack her through any social media. You don’t have to condone the way she is acting, but the attacks and the meanness help no one. Amy Bouzaglo needs therapy and probably a friend, not a bunch of strangers antagonizing her.
So can we knock it off, please?
Angelina Jolie announces a double mastectomy to save her life, people get fucking pissed and act like she’s lost everything that’s made her worthwhile in the first place, AND YOU WONDER WHY I FUCKING HATE THE “SAVE THE BOOBIES” TROPE.
BECAUSE NO ONE ACTUALLY GIVES A FUCK ABOUT THE WOMAN’S LIFE. WOMEN JUST HAPPEN TO BE ATTACHED TO A PAIR OF BREASTS. WOMEN AREN’T WORTH SAVING—BUT YOU BET YOUR ASS THE PUBLIC WILL BE IN A RIOT IF A GOOD PAIR OF TITS IS IN DANGER.
men at large think they are being robbed of something when an attractive woman with a 90% chance of developing breast cancer gets a double mastectomy
what better illustration of the male sense of sexual entitlement do you need
So today Angelina Jolie had double mastectomy, which is the removal of one’s breasts, to prevent Breast cancer. So instead of praising Angelina on her bravery, men on Twitter decided to ridicule her, even calling her stupid for removing her breasts. For those of you on Tumblr that are attacking Feminists about being delusional about sexism against women and misogyny here’s your fucking proof that sexism and misogyny exists.
An anti-choicer says her father tries to buy babies from people getting abortions.
Is he also willing to pay for the prenatal and delivery costs which can cost anywhere from $9k to $250k without insurance? And will he ensure a safe and emotionally supportive space for the pregnant woman in the event that she will be abused if a family member or partner finds out she’s pregnant? What about grievance for any emotional or psychological consequences, such as being disowned/ostracized by friends and family, or having a fear of childbirth, or carrying her rapist’s child, or just really not wanting to be pregnant?
And since maternal mortality rates, near misses, and other serious pregnancy-related complications are actually rising in the U.S, does he plan to repay her if she needs heart surgery or brain surgery or other long-term medical attention? How does he plan to repay her if she dies?
Ten thousand dollars doesn’t even begin to cover it.
