mainstream tumblr feminism may have many glaring faults but it has bred an army of teenage girls who understand the common ways that misogyny is reinforced in society and who know that they’re better off loving their fellow woman than fighting with her and that’s actually pretty damn revolutionary

a guy walked into the board room and said

"hi sweetheart if you could fix me up a coffee real quick im meeting with the regional reports manager in like five minutes, thanks darling"

and i just stared at him and coldly said

"i am the regional reports manager"

we are now twenty minutes into this board meeting and i dont think i’ve ever seen a man look so embarrassed and afraid in my whole life

Good

We literally have to put signs up that say “don’t masturbate to random women on public transportation” like jesus fucking christ

University Study on Sexism in Doctor Who

"Fun fact, Rose’s Bechdal test score would have been in the 80′s were it not for the episodes Moffat wrote during her run."

Guys, really, you should click the link. 

“Ironically, the woman who is often propped up as proof that Steven Moffat is, in fact, not a sexist was one of the worst in terms of the Bechdel test and overall independence of thought and character. While maintaining an average speaking time, the episodes she is in only pass the Bechdel Test 57% of the time, and she herself only passes 42% of the time. She also never passes it on her own after Series 5. It is also important to note that River’s “passes” barely scraped by this test. Her passing conversations were always around three or four lines of exchange total, limited to one per episode, and were always in the presence of/with the Doctor.”

So I ask the American commentators, please stop announcing that Landon Donovan is the “all-time U.S. leading goal scorer.” He is not. With 57 international goals, he’s not even in the Top Five.

The all-time U.S. leading goal scorer is Abby Wambach, with 167 goals, followed by Mia Hamm (158), Kristine Lilly (130), Michelle Akers (105) and Tiffeny Milbrett (100). In fact, Abby Wambach is the all-time leading goal scorer in the world, among all soccer players, male or female.

My youngest flaunts her mind, and frightens away the suitors.

- Louis Nicolas le Tonnerlier de Breteuil, on his daughter, the raddest person in history, Émilie du Châtelet. Emilie was a scientist in the 18th century who proved Newton’s ideas on velocity wrong. She also played a role in helping Einstein figure out E = mcwith E=mv2 (via intuitiveunderstanding)

Also, “frightens away the suitors” = BS. Emilie du Chatelet was a hustler. Fucking Voltaire was her personal man-candy. Her husband was apparently totally cool with it. The historical record did not preserve evidence for or against a threesome.

#girls don’t you go feeling like you don’t got any role models ‘cause you got role models like damn  #it just takes a little more work to find out about them is all

(via vorvayne)

When she was a 27-year-old mother of three, du Châtelet began perhaps the most passionate affair of her life—a true partnership of heart and mind. Her lover, the writer Voltaire, recounted later, “In the year 1733 I met a young lady who happened to think nearly as I did.” She and Voltaire shared deep interests: in political reform, in the fun of fast conversations, and, above all, in advancing science as much as they could.” —pbs.org

Though the majority of the villains are men, Orphan Black is not the story of women vs. men. (Even Helena, who represents the most radical form of feminism, sweetly dubs Felix “brother sestra.”) Instead, Orphan Black is about women vs. the system. While the men are nothing more than empty suits, the misogynist system they’re a part of gives them power. Leekie’s idea to reduce women to man-made synthetic wombs, Duncan’s project of creating an endless supply of “little girls,” Henrik’s religious rape — these ideas, not the men, are the real threats. And since the men who run these projects have wealth and institution on their side, they are able to provide real road blocks to the clones, even though the women are far more intelligent and proficient.

smalldisgruntledcorgi:

honestly if you dont think like, the tumblr feminist scene, with all the occasionally cheesy kawaii-aesthetic misandry art, hasn’t had an impact on anyone at all like

you dont remember what the average teen girl in a fandom was like before this. you don’t remember how we used to make hate-sites about female characters who “got in the way”, games where you could beat them up, how much we hate our gender and bragged about not being like other girls, used to completely reject everything girly. a lot of us just wanted to be one of the guys. there was a lot of internalised misogyny there

now you get these 15 year old girls loving other girls and loving themselves fiercely, even at the total cost of male approval and just. god. if like 14-year-old me could see this shit now. 

and like if you dont think teen girls learning to love themselves and their body and each other isnt important than i do not know what to say to you

Why are there so few women voices in comedy? It’s not because women are shit at comedy. It’s because comedy doesn’t really seem like a safe space for women. If I was a woman considering doing standup comedy and I sat in Reginald D Hunter’s show, or Brendhan Lovegrove’s show and heard how standup comics view women, I’d think “fuck this. I’m not going into this bearpit”. And men, that’s our fault. So hey, if you’re going to be a male standup comic, don’t be a asshole.

From Dave Cormack at The Ruminator.

I’m so glad he said it, because I’ve wanted to but I’ve honestly been a) afraid of doing so and the kinds of responses I will get, as a woman, making such a statement, and b) stuck on how to phrase it concisely because of lack of brain space (I’ve been involved in five shows this fest). 

We go on and on about what to do about women in comedy, and people say things like ‘Women just don’t want to do it, why force it’ and ‘What do you want, a quota? THAT’S REVERSE SEXIST’ and no one is prepared to say ‘Maybe we should stop tolerating sexist material and micro aggressions and pretending that a hostile work environment somehow doesn’t exist in the comedy industry’. 

Anyway, go read the whole thing, it’s good.
