Challenge #02418-F228: Smile For Me

There three main causes of most murders. "Anger" is one. -- Anon Guest

You know what really pisses me off? The phrase, "You're cute when you're mad." Like all that ever matters about me is the appeal I have to everyone around me. I'm cute. I'm adorable. I'm so pretty, haha, I shouldn't have negative feelings.

Bull. Hockey. I'm a human being, just like them. I have feelings, both positive and negative. I have wants and needs. I make choices... but the only ones that matter seem to be the ones that change how I look to the entire world. Too much makeup. Too little makeup. Comfortable clothes or sexy ones. Looking professional is looking like a high-end hooker. Too much heel. Too little heel. The right kind of hair. Go blonde. Get a perm. Don't get a perm. Maybe become a brunette. Do something about your weight, your skin tone, your nose...

I'm a person, but the rest of the world treats me like an object to be pretty or felt up or that my only purpose of existence is to be attractive, have babies, and preferably die after all the messy parts of child-raising are over. I hate it. I hate it so much. I hate all the people who endorse it. I hate the entire industry centred around putting me into the same mould as whatever vapid stereotype happens to be the leading example of what a woman is supposed to be. In brief, I hate this entire world. That's why I'm going to do my best to kill it.

Challenge #02128-E299: Pick Up Your Skirts and Walk Away

"Have fun with your crisis, I'm going to live among the goats." -- OohLookShiny

Leth had told them. She'd told them often. She'd told them so much that they mocked her for saying it, but she said it nonetheless.

"No good has ever come from making the rich richer and the poor poorer," she had said. Or, "In order for an economy to flourish, you have to give money to people who will spend it."

They didn't listen. They didn't listen because

Challenge #01748-D287: War of the Sexes

Why do women's clothing never have pockets? -- Anon Guest

Everyone thinks it's the purse industry. Selling ladies all forms of impractical bags of varying sizes that, though they look pretty, are a pain to manage. Those that hang off the shoulder cause damage to the tendons. Those clutched in the hand are hard to keep track of. And those with large bags suffer the worst, because their significant others use them as pack horses.

That's only part of it.

A Writer Sends Her Novel to Agents Under a Male Pseudonym--And Sees the Discrimination of the Publishing Industry.

bitch-media:

Really interesting article from writer Catherine Nichols: 

“On a dim Saturday morning, I copy-pasted my cover letter and the opening pages of my novel from my regular e-mail into George’s account. I put in the address of one of the agents I’d intended to query under my own name. I didn’t expect to hear back for a few weeks, if at all. It would only be a few queries and then I’d close out my experiment. I

Thoughts on sexism in Jurassic World

jonathanseal777:

Claire’s character development is that she is a career oriented woman who is not interested in having kids.

She is thrown in a survival situation where she must protect the kids and and in that situation she learns to appreciate and even care for the kids.

Many critics find this character arc to be sexist.

Does anybody remember Alan Grant’s character arc in the original film?

Strong independent, career oriented man who does not want kids.

Is thrown into

Middle School Censors Student’s T-Shirt Because It Used The Word ‘Feminist’

An eighth grade student at Clermont Northeastern Middle School in Batavia, Ohio wore a black T-shirt on class photo day which included the word “FEMINIST” written across the shirt in white letters. Yet, while the shirt does not violate any school rule and the student has worn it to classes before, the school chose to doctor her class photo to remove the word.

We need feminism because: This middle

So this is what trust looks like.

Funny, my first thought was “So this is what the patriarchy looks like.”

Yup. This is how women are supposed to trust men. With their lives.

Woman : “Hey, can we just… Drop the bow?”
Man : “WHY DON’T YOU TRUST ME I’M NOT A VIOLENT GUY, YOU ARE INSULTING ME THINKING I WILL HURT YOU!!!”
Woman : “No it’s just… Well I’m afraid.”
Man : “But why? Look at

theghostofyourliess:

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Prime Minister of Australia kicking ass and taking names (mostly Tony Abbott’s.

Easily one of my favorite moments of 2012.

The fact that she’s a prime minister and not a president makes this even more awesome.

That means that she’s actually taking a risk with this speech - she’s speaking to the people with the power to boot her out of office at the drop of a hat.

But she decided

“Judgments”

I took this last year, but in retrospect, I think it’s my strongest piece from high school.

Working on this project really made me examine my own opinions, preconceptions and prejudices about “slutty” women and women who choose to cover all of their skin alike. I used to assume that all women who wore Hijabs were being oppressed, slut-shame, and look down on and judge any woman who didn’t express her sexuality in a way that found
