I write for a feminist gaming blog. In fact, I’m the Lead Editor (which is my title because I own the website, not because I actually have more say than our other two editors).
I am new to feminism within the last year. I am still learning terms and learning…
My friend, keep your head up. Everyone’s always going to criticize something. There are a mess of feminists, non-feminists and people in general who are 100% convinced they know everything- and it can get annoying. Write what you believe- research it if you have to- and feel brave enough to stand up to some criticism. I for one have always taken notice that the word “feminism” contains the root “fem.” Feminism may have many branches, but at its root is the pursuit of the rights of women. Happy feminist gaming!
My biggest regret ever is joining Tumblr. Most of you on here are idiots that have nothing better to do other than anonymously put others down and post stupid gifs all day long. Do yourself a favor and spend your time learning some kind of a skill rather than clutter up the Internet all damn day. Use the time you spend creating gifs to do something useful.
My biggest regret ever is staying in a straight relationship as a gay woman all through my teenage years. I should have got up the courage to get out of it, and to come out. I wasted seven years, and lost my confidence and self esteem through his abuse. I should have been true to myself and I am now.
You had the courage to get out. You just didn’t realize how long it would take.
I get that many queer folks don’t think we need to be worried about joining the military because it is the fascist arm of a violent mind. Just like many queer folk aren’t too concerned about marriage because they feel it is a patriarchal institution. But if you have the freedom to decide to enter into an institution, profession, or relationship- you have freedom. My thoughts on the morality, wisdom, or implications of that choice should have no bearing on your ability to make that choice. That is what being pro-choice means. That is what equality looks like. Every step my country takes towards equality is a step that makes me proud!
On September 18, 2010, 18-year-old Navid Mohebbi was beaten, dragged from his home, and thrown into jail in Iran. He awaits sentencing in a small cell he shares with a convicted murderer. What was Navid’s crime? Apparently, he’s a threat to national security, promotes anti-Iran propaganda, and has insulted current and former leaders of the Islamic Republic. At least, that’s what he was charged with. What did he actually do? He kept a blog supporting women’s rights.
“The world honey bee population has plunged in recent years, worrying beekeepers and farmers who know how critical bee pollination is for many crops. A number of theories have popped up as to why the North American honey bee population has declined—electromagnetic radiation, malnutrition, and climate change have all been pinpointed. Now a leaked EPA document reveals that the agency allowed the widespread use of a bee-toxic pesticide, despite warnings from EPA scientists.”— Wik-Bee Leaks: EPA Document Shows It Knowingly Allowed Pesticide That Kills Honey Bees
good. i fucking hate feminazis and seeing as how you’re not one, you’re excused from having to read this. if you are a feminazi and i misunderstood, keep reading.
oh you are….fuck.
girls, if you want equal rights, equal pay, ect, fine by me. i’m not saying you don’t…
people that use the word “feminazi” unironically are such douchefuckers.
the nazis killed between 11 million and 17 million people for such egregious crimes as: being gay, being romani, being jewish, having a disability.
what have feminists done that has ever compared in pure harm to the holocaust? oh no! women have the right to vote now! yeah, women’s suffrage activists were just like nazis! oh no, someone tells you it’s misogynist to call women sluts! clearly that is just like the holocaust! oh no! women want to be valued for contributions to the world that don’t include how attractive you find them in your position of infinite wisdom and objectiveness! clearly you’re being oppressed, just like the millions of victims of the holocaust were! oh no! women are speaking out in a manner inconvenient or annoying to you! that’s just like being systematically murdered!
yeah, gender egalitarianism is EXACTLY like the holocaust!
Thanks for answering my random question. I have the luxury of not being in a high risk group, so I avoid it- but when I was raising a child I had her immunized. I guess I have this fear of being fucked with, and shots seem like an easy way to fuck with folks. (Especially considering the US occasionally “admits” to using injections to give people things they didn’t ask for.)
My biggest regret ever is allowing a man to sexually harass me when I was 13. He would pin me against the wall, fondle me, and make lewd comments. Now he’s a Mormon missionary. Nobody would believe me if I admitted what happened.
