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

“Looks like you 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.”

“Understand this, rape will always exist in human society. It is a mapait prutas of evolution....

1. MYTH: Legalizing prostitution gets rid of its criminal elements - pimps and traffickers.
FACT: Legalizing prostitution benefits pimps and traffickers. It also benefits johns.

2. MYTH: Men need sex therefore prostitution must exist. Prostitution is a natural form of human sexuality
FACT: The sex of prostitution is not “sex” for women in it. Most men who use women in prostitution have other sexual partners.

3. MYTH: Prostitution is sexual liberation
FACT: Prostitution is sexual exploitation.

4. MYTH Women choose to enter prostitution. It’s better to choose to make lots of money as a prostitute...

It stared with a simple premise; a woman playing Peter Pan; Girls pag-ibig that! Something different happened, during "Ugg-A-Wugg" I couldn't understand them, which was both shocking and intriguing. Fortunately as a person with Cerebral Palsy I knew just what to do. I Promised to Help the Cast if they needed it. 12 years later "Peter Pan Live!" Made changes to "Ugg-A-Wugg" and it caused me to feel A LOT of guilt, and self-hated, But NBC had upset the Native Americans who expressed themselves on #NotYourTigerLily and I stated tweeting there to. My tweets got into the tuktok Tweets my confidence grew....

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 iugnay 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...

Not too long ago, I’ve been exploring the recesses of the Internet for some discussion based on Feminism-from websites dedicated to only the talk of Feminism to YouTube bidyo and their comments, knowing fully well that many of the things I will view will be made sa pamamagitan ng anti-Feminists. My expectations were only half-disappointed. I did expect the usual “Feminists are the most sexist, misandrist, selfish manginas and mga tomboy of the planet,” but I didn’t expect this: “black women shouldn’t have involved themselves in the white woman’s evil movement.”

Alright, listen up, men’s rights people. You say you want to improve the lives of all men, to protect their rights. Well, I have a challenge for you: Can you stand up for the male individuals who act feminine?

It’s no secret that men who ipakita signs of anything associated with femininity are looked down upon. Effeminate men are made the butt of jokes all the time in the media and in real life. Just tonight I watched Date Night, where the male lead is described as androgynous and hilarity ensues as he is forced to agree with that. madami than jokes, such men and boys are frequently the victims...

Chauvinism and Masculinism, two of the biggest anti-feminism "movements" alive and rampant in this araw and age. Since the beginning of these movements, the Feminist image has been violated to the point that even hearing the word "Feminist" brings up some ugly descriptions in the human psyche: fat, unattractive, masculine women who can't find a decent husband that want to create misery for all like they feel sa pamamagitan ng lying about what women really want (like mga sanggol and husbands) and emasculating men, or a big system of corporate tools brainwashed sa pamamagitan ng powerful liberals to decimate the human race,

Here are some women empowerment mga panipi that I like:

Women sleep on the right side of the kama 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 you have to be stronger than a man, you 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.

A lot of you 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 afghan 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...

Preface:
I have read all books and seen the movies.
Most importantly, the fact that it’s pantasiya doesn’t excuse the themes and messages in the book. Fiction is merely a vehicle humans developed to communicate important lessons, values and philosophies. I am not claiming any of the implications I discuss were intentional on SMeyer’s part. Whether or not the may-akda or readers are aware of it, though, the Twilight series communicates dangerous messages...

Now i'm what I would like to call an average guy. I also like to think that I'm open minded and willing to hear any argument as long as that argument is backed up with cold hard facts.
Now as a guy i personally don't have any experience of any of the issues normally expressed sa pamamagitan ng the feminist movement so my thoughts and opinions are always formed from segundo hand or third hand experience (reading articles, watching YouTube bidyo etc.)
Now i'm sure some of you are asking yourself why are you asking this? Well the answer is as follows.
Two week nakaraan i was taking part in a community discussion at...

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 mga hayop 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...

Rebecca Mott is a woman who has survived violent, abusive prostitution and rape. Her words deserve to be heard.


Despair Hits My puso - Rebecca Mott
link

I have been coming back into life – I know this is good. But this post is about my confusion, my grief and my despair that I still do not understand what it is to be alive – beyond being a role.

I will write in the back parts of my mind, I will try to drag out the stuff that scares me, that blocks me, that still make wonder if I am still nothing but an object finding how to please others.

I don’t know how to be human, that it not some philosophical...

I didn't know what to make of this book. The pomes are there because someone in the story is repeating them giving the narrative a disjointed feel, and of course there's the "It was all a dream" ending is as soul crushing as it is for any pantasiya story. But it made me think. Alice doesn't DO much, the main focus is on her intellectual ability, and when she does hold the baby/pig is in her dream. Alice does appear to have a disability, I have Cerebral Palsy, and I spend time mangarap ng gising about doing stuff abled-bodied people are able to do. and am very smart. Lewis Corral didn't have the opportunity to think about his story this way, and if you didn't you're NOT a horrible person, you just made the same assumption I made when I saw the (incomplete) Disney version when I was a kid. The paradox is she has physical abilities, but we don't KNOW if Alice REALLY has them because she's dreaming for all but 2 and 1/2 pages. It gives the ending meaning, anyway.
Have you ever been offended sa pamamagitan ng those stereotypes? Well, I get offended pretty easily sa pamamagitan ng the gender stereotypes. Whenever I get offended I would complain and stop watching or playing the game altogether. Nearly all pelikula and tv shows and even the video games are made sa pamamagitan ng 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...

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

Nicole Kidman: We Must Support Women

Nicole Kidman has been “brought to her knees” sa pamamagitan ng 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 pasulong and speak about abuses, knowing they will have...

“Wherever there is a human being, I see God-given rights inherent in that being, whatever may be the sex or complexion” -- William Lloyd Garrison

"Nothing can be madami absurd than the practice that prevails in our country of men and women not following the same pursuits with all their strengths and with one mind, for thus, the state instead of being whole is reduced to half."
--Plato

"[A] woman should have every honorable motive to exertion which is enjoyed sa pamamagitan ng man, to the full extent of her capacities and endowments. The case is too plain for argument. Nature has ibingiay woman the same powers,...

I read a lot of stuff online talking about the “tone argument” and how it’s used to silence feminists. The gist of it is that a feminist is angry about something and delivers a criticism of it, and the opposition points to the way the feminist is angry as a means of shutting them down without ever acknowledging the criticism as valid or that the person has a right to be angry. This is a problem, and I have seen it occur in threads, so the anti-tone-argument sentiment has a respectable basis. However, I believe the sentiment is often misused so that it ends up causing the same sort of...
