The Resident Xander-Shaped Friend

Until I find my purpose as a tumblr participant, all I'm going to say is this: when I was little, I wanted to grow up to be Batgirl.

stand up for girls and women who don’t like to read. stand up for girls and women who can’t read. stand up for girls and women with low IQs. stand up for girls and women who can’t write. stand up for girls and women whose access to education has been prevented. for those with learning disorders. for those who mix up “your” and “you’re” because it’s not that big a fucking deal tumblr. stand up for women who are called ableist slurs for these things and stop implying that the only way to be a feminist icon is by being an intellectual.

I need feminism because most men’s restrooms still aren’t equipped with baby changing stations. As someone who was married to a man who had sole custody of his young son, I’m hyperaware that feminism means EQUALITY, not female superiority. Feminism should and does support a man’s right to be as much of a parent to his child(ren) as any mother is allowed/expected to be.

This is a constant problem for Mr. Tea and myself. We’ve got twins, so even though I can change one kid on the change table in the ladies’ room, he’s left standing sort of awkwardly in the lobby with a messy child while I change one, come back, and get the other.

Nobody’s suggesting that men aren’t parents, so the lack of change tables goes well beyond ‘gender role reinforcing’ and straight into ‘ridiculous’.

My dad actually almost got kicked out of a mall once for changing my brother in the womens room of a mall. The only reason they didn’t call the cops on him was because the ladies in the room supported him.

I’d never even considered this but I support it

Supporting the shit outta this

I support this. I support men who want to be actual parents and not just a novelty in their kid’s lives like my dad was

i don’t get how a woman can “invade” a space meant for women. 

reblogging again.

ALWAYS REBLOG

'Do you consider yourself a feminist?'
‘I don’t really think about things as guys versus girls. I never have. I was raised by parents who brought me up to think if you work as hard as guys, you can go far in life.’

- Taylor Swift 2012

'As a teenager, I didn’t understand that saying you’re a feminist is just saying that you hope women and men will have equal rights and equal opportunities. What it seemed to me, the way it was phrased in culture, society, was that you hate men. And now, I think a lot of girls have had a feminist awakening because they understand what the word means.'

- Taylor Swift 2014

This post makes an excellent point, but Swift has still jumped on the trend of highjacking black culture and black bodies to make money. So she still doesn’t really get feminism. Guess we’ll have to check back in two years.

effective feminism is realizing that every struggle is not your own and that you can’t always relate

 you can always provide support and solidarity

but sometimes you gotta realize

that it’s not about you right now

  • Beyoncé: (Feminism) requires both men and women, and we are equally important and need one another. … We have to teach our boys the rules of equality and respect, so that as they grow up, gender equality becomes a natural way of life. And we have to teach our girls that they can reach as high as humanly possible.”
  • White Feminists: stop using feminism for attention
  • Scarlet Johansson: I am girl
  • White Feminists: YES! finally a celebrity with a brain! in a male dominated industry Scarlet is not a afraid to be herself. Truly a feminist icon!

When you say you’re a feminist…I hope you really know what that means. It means standing up for women of color.

Standing by black women who must deal with being referred to as welfare queens or ratchet.

Being a feminist is standing beside immigrant women who deal with wage theft, unsafe working conditions, and being referred to as leaving anchor babies in America.

It means standing beside Native American women who face domestic violence and rape at unprecedented rates.

It means standing beside Muslim women who choose to live out their faith and face Islamaphobia, sexism and ignorance constantly.

It means standing beside Asian women who have been misrepresented in the media to be thought of as only submissive and quiet.

Please recognize that feminism impacts the lives of every single one of these groups…but we are all women

browngirlblues:

Women against feminism are basically just arguing that their individual lives are fine and they don’t care about what other women go through.
