Have upon thee, kittens and equality!

"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”

Devyn was devastated when she said the camp director called after one day to tell her cystic fibrosis is just too complicated for the program.

repeat after me

you do not have to be paying close attention to something for conditioning to occur

you do not have to deliberately analyze a piece of media for the implicit messages to have an effect on you

attitudes can be impacted by things you never consciously picked up on

this is why it’s very important for us to continually analyze the media we consume and ask ourselves what messages it’s sending

JK Rowling said she would have made Seamus/Dean canon but she felt it would be distracting from the main trio

Literally how much space do you need to have a line about Dean asking Seamus to the Yule ball

Look, I’ll try

"Parvati had tried to ask Dean to the ball, but he told her he was going with Seamus instead."

DONE

Wait, what? I haven’t seen that particular interview/quote, could somebody link me (it’s just that so many fake quotes are going around tumblr that I no longer accept any quote without a source and I couldn’t find it on google either).

Apparently someone is stealing food from our fridge (to the point that one of my ever-polite flatmates has actually put up a sign saying “The cherries were only 1 pound, buy them yourself next time, you son of a bitch!”) And I’ve got the slight suspicion people are blaming me because I’m by far the least socially connected to the rest of my flatmates. BUT I SWEAR IT WASN’T ME! (I’ve had eggs and milk go missing as well!)

I hate when people think that ‘cause someone is disabled, everyone that loves them does it out of charity. You are loved ‘cause you are amazing, not ‘cause some takes pity. Ignore the ignorance of some people. You are loved because you deserve it.

Wow, awesome to come back to a message like this! Here, have a kitty kiss

You’re great and this is really nice! :)
