Anonymous asked: Is men being called feminists like straight allies trying to be in the LGBT acronym?

Yes it’s like heterosexuals saying they are a part of LGBT when they are just supporting same-sex marriage. It’s just another indicator of self-entitled privilege, and oppressive groups wanting a reward for showing the slightest bit of empathy for the group they oppress. 

A guy in my Women’s Studies teaching collective got pissed off when he read in an article that men cannot be feminists, only feminist allies, and I was looking at him like “why do you think your opinion matters on this subject when this movement isn’t fucking about you and YOU’RE the one in a position of power you brat”

amen

Depression glass vanity tray with vintage clothes brush, crystal necklace, imitation pearls and perfume bottles.

The earrings on the stand are a mix of vintage and new.

If your primary thought after hearing of a woman being physically abused by her partner is to insist on playing devil’s advocate or justify the situation by stating it must have been the result of provocation, you’re a misogynist.

how to tell if someone is really bisexual:

  • if a true bisexual utters their name backwards, it will send them back to their home dimension for a minimum of 90 days. 
  • fire type bisexuals will always be able to learn the move solarbeam, unless they are flareon. 
  • biologically, bisexuals are incapable of going down stairs.
  • some bisexuals are unable to cast a shadow, though this is currently up for debate

The Miss Indian World pageant is the answer to Miss America we’ve been looking for

When Kira Kazantsev was crowned the new Miss America on Sunday night, a feeling of déjá vu set in.

Not only was she white — like all but nine of the 94 winners before her — she also fit snugly into a narrowly defined standard of Western female attractiveness: early 20s, long flowing hair and a thin, painstakingly tanned physique that would not seem out of place in a Victoria’s Secret catalog.

In many ways, the Miss Indian World pageant’s definition of what American beauty truly entails is the ideological antithesis to Miss America. Indeed, since 1984, this five-day competition based in Albuquerque, N.M., has honored Native American woman for their contributions to their communities, not their bikini bodies. The top award is given to the contestant who “best represents her culture,” according to Al Jazeera.

Why this pageant is world’s better
