i need feminism because when jesus does a magic trick it’s a goddamn miracle but when a woman does a magic trick she gets burned at the stake
i mean they did also kill jesus. that was a pretty significant thing that happened. like i understand where you’re coming from here but they very much did kill jesus.
- student: hey government can I have some money to go to university
- uk government: sure here you go. you'll have to pay it back but only when you're earning £21,000+ a year, and if you don't pay it off after 30 years we'll just write it off, don't worry about it man
- scottish government: nah man just go to uni we ain't gonna charge you
- us government: no. you gotta pay it yourself. upfront. your parents have to save up from the moment you're born. good luck, fucker.
I know you don’t like my boyfriend, and that’s fine - you’re entitled to your opinion (sometimes I don’t like him, lol).
But…I hope you don’t think he disrespects women or thinks men are above them. In fact, quite the opposite. He is very much an advocate for women and women’s rights. One of the many people he admired was his grandmother (may she rest in peace), who he has described as being the strongest woman he’s ever known. He admired her strength. He admired her determination. He admired…her.
When I had doubts about what I wanted to do with my life and how far I would go in my career because I’m a woman, he acknlowedged the challenges and told me his frustrations with them because he believes women are just as equal as men. He wants to see me achieve everything I want and is mad that I may not be able to just because I’m a woman.
When his friend makes a misogynist comment, he shuts him down. He knows that when I fear trying to do the same because I may come off as “emotional” for being a woman (in his friend’s eyes), but he encourages me to do so - to stand up for myself; to ignore what his friend thinks because he’s ignorant; that I’m not emotional for wanting to break a stereotype.
I love all of this about him because not only do I feel like an equal with him, but he also wants me to be an equal - not just with him but with society.
The only problem is…he words things in such odd ways that others don’t understand or may misinterpret him. I only know what he means because I’ve been with him for pretty much four years (four years of me asking him to explain).
Although…he’s gotten better at that. He still needs to work on it though.
It can be frustrating, not going to lie.
I just wanted to write this to appease your worries about me and perhaps diminish any ill feelings toward him. 1) Because I hope it will make you feel better, and 2) because you’re my friend, and I love you. I want you to know I’m okay.
I appreciate soap so much because look at it
so much time and careful handiwork must go into making these
some are pretty beautiful
or wicked adorable
you can give it to a loved one
or just sit there and drool at it
but you dudes had better appreciate the heck out of your soap
The Soap Fandom doesn’t fuck around.
