Dear Feminists, Will 你 Also Be Marching In N***erwalk? Because I Won't.
by Keli Goff

(Published in The Huffington Post)

The only thing 更多 irritating than people doing absolutely nothing to make the world a better place are those actively trying to make it worse, but coming in a strong third? Those whose well-meaning efforts to make the world better are so misguided that they make things worse 由 default.

I was reminded of this when I happened upon the SlutWalk protests taking place in New York this past weekend... with my mother. (If you're looking for something super memorable to do with...

Kurt Cobain- The Feminist

by Kat Broderick

link

The late Kurt Cobain was surprisingly, an avid member of the feminist community. Here are some of his 链接 to activism and his ties to the feminist agenda.

If generation X had a king it would be Kurt Cobain. His devil may care attitude arguably defined a generation of people. His haunting melodies and desperate screams spoke to youth disenchanted with societies’ expectations. He cared about a...

'Feminazi' is the demonization of feminism via comparing the woman's rights movement to Adolf Hitler.

Needless to say, it is the most incompetent and insensitive terminology refering to:

A. The victims who suffered tremendously under Hitler's regime during WW2.
B. Feminism and how misunderstood it's many messages are today in modern society.

So even if 你 aren't a feminist, 或者 maybe even not even pro-feminist (which i can assure 你 are completely different things), 你 most definately shouldn't tolerate this fad. Here are four, quick, clear reasons simply to start 你 off. I could go on for...

Non-haters gonna non-hate: NiceGuy Edition
--David Futrelle

From: link




Once upon a time one of the guys over at NiceGuy’s MGTOW 论坛 set up a little 民意调查 asking his fellow “nice guys” whether 或者 not they actually consider themselves to be misogynists; it’s been up there for years, and the site’s resident MGTOWers have been adding 得票数 and 评论 all along. The wording of the 民意调查 is sufficiently, ah, flexible enough to give respondents a lot of ways to wiggle out of saying explicitly that they really were misogynists:


* I despise the entire female sex. Period.
* I hate only "western"...

Alice in Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is dreaming and there is no way for me as a reader to tell what physical abilities she may have while awake; could Alice have a physical disability? Could Alice’s dream be so vivid because she is also Autistic? As an Autistic reader with Cerebral Palsy, I think yes, in this paper I will interpret Alice as physically disabled and Autistic.
There are some passages that I find interesting as they seem to be confirming my theory. Thinking about getting into the garden requires a certain amount of steps, which can be a problem for autistic...

Freedom 或者 Death
By Emmaline Pankhurst


This speech was delivered in Hartford, Connecticut on November 13 1913

I do not come here as an advocate, because whatever position the suffrage movement may occupy in the United States of America, in England it has passed beyond the realm of advocacy and it has entered into the sphere of practical politics. It has become the subject of revolution and civil war, and so tonight I am not here to advocate woman suffrage. American suffragists can do that very well for themselves.

I am here as a soldier who has temporarily left the field of battle in order to explain...

Have 你 ever been offended 由 those stereotypes? Well, I get offended pretty easily 由 the gender stereotypes. Whenever I get offended I would complain and stop watching 或者 playing the game altogether. Nearly all 电影院 and tv shows and even the video games are made 由 sexist men who think that women are not as capable as women! Let's look at one example, the movie Gremlins. It may be funny, but can be sexist. I hate that movie. It portrays women as weak, cowardly, helpless, and over FUCKING dependent! And males as too overprotective and muscly and too fucking irresistable! Gosh, I hate when...

A lot of 你 have probably witnessed the video for Katy Perry's part of me in which she discovers her boyfriend cheating, does a Britney and joins the armed forces in a bid to get over her turmoil and shoot little 阿富汗 children in the face.

At first sights, this is a immaculate example of feminism in the works: A young, pretty girl finds the strength to defy her boyfriend's infidelities and find her own way in life without him. It's hard imagining Perry doing anything apart from mess around with wigs and giggle...

Nicole Kidman: We Must Support Women
link

Nicole Kidman has been “brought to her knees” 由 tales of abuse from some women.

The actress is a UN Goodwill Ambassador who has done a lot of work with females. She is determined to do all she can to help victims of abuse.

“I’ve been to Haiti and Kosovo and to shelters all over the world. The things I’ve seen and the stories I’ve heard just bring me to my knees,” she told the February edition of UK magazine InStyle. “We are working to pass new laws and to make it OK for women to step 前锋, 期待 and speak about abuses, knowing they will have...

x and y are not dissimilar . In fact they are so similar that y is called x with missing leg. If that is correct then there remain no difference in blue print . if blue print is same how can the structure erected on the basis of this can be different. Only difference must be in arrangement and for a capable mind that is no difference at all . so to say man is just the woman with clitoris enlarged as penis. Vagina stitched to be scrotum and ovaries dropped down from the tummy as testis........(Ref-man is the extension of woman)

"I’ve been having an argument for days with this guy on 互联网电影数据库 about promiscuous people not asking for rape (on the cape fear page) and he’s like 说 some pretty ridiculous sh*t…here are some examples:

“Looks like 你 dig into a lot of feminist website to empower yourself.”

“Hence I don’t agree with the whole martial rape. The newest law in Afghanistan that obliges women to give their husbands sex at least 4 times a week. I would say that is a progressive law.”

Here are some women empowerment 语录 that I like:

Women sleep on the right side of the 床, 床上 because even while sleeping they have to be right! ~Author unknown

I'm an excellent housekeeper. Everytime I get a divorce, I keep the house. ~Zsa Zsa Gabor

In this world 你 have to be stronger than a man, 你 have to be a wo-man! ~AVPM

Anything men can do, women can do better, plus in heels.

Men, their rights, and nothing more; women, their rights, and nothing less. ~Susan B. Anthony

History is herstory, too. ~Author unknown

I'd much rather be a woman than a man. Women can cry, they can wear cute clothes, and they are the first to be rescued off of sinking ships.

Man has will, but woman has her way.

Women get the last word in every argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Women are scientifically proven to be right even when they are wrong.

MYTH #2: 心 disease is a man’s problem.

There’s a meme I’ve seen online where feminists say that the word “females” shouldn’t be used because of its dehumanizing connotations. The idea is that “female” relates to the sex of a biological organism, and when one is using that kind of terminology they tend to be discussing nonhuman 动物 in a scientific fashion. So, when men talk about “females” when they mean “women”, it comes off as dehumanizing. While I agree to an extent, as I believe some men do use this to purposefully distance themselves from women, I also think this decree that female humans should be...

Look at all of the stereotypes that existed ever since the beginning of time! They're so toxic and so degrading!

Stereotype 1: Every woman needs a man (which is an issue in many high schools, even colleges and such).

Stereotype 2: All women need rescuing and constant protection.

Stereotype 3: A woman who stands up for herself is considered b*tchy, bossy, and unladylike.

Stereotype 4: A woman is supposed to be submissive and f*cking cowardly! (which is so common)

Stereotype 5: All women are less intellegent, 更多 foolish, and can't learn anything.

Stereotype 6: Women are the weakest of the weak....

Farida broke all barriers

by Ophelia Benson
July 11, 2012


How miserably sad and depressing. Farida Afridi, an activist for tribal women in Pakistan, was murdered today. (You know how. 你 don’t even need to look. Leaving 首页 for work. Guys on motorcycles. Guns. Died on the way to the hospital.)

Along with her sister Noor Zia, Farida was committed to social change and economic emancipation for women from the platform of a welfare organisation called the Society for Appraisal and Women Empowerment in Rural Areas (SAWERA). Both women were among the founding members of the NGO and had a Masters...
