I will probably post many kitty related things. Because kitties are wonderful and I like them. I may post other things that are not kitty related. These posts will most likely be other things I like.

"What's so wrong with egalitarianism?" ?? ??? Um, because it erases feminism and makes people think feminism is anti-equality and that they should support other things? I know a guy who says things like this and you can naturally assume he's anti-feminism and once tried to lecture me on racism. He was also white.

Sounds like every egalitarian I’ve ever met.

A true scientist never apologizes for speaking the truth. Feminism is anti free speech, there for anti freedom, there for anti human. There for, Anti equality. 

What does any of that have to do with science.

If we’re talking about political science then a political science major would say hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Nothing, true say you got me there. I’m still not apologizing. You people follow a poisonous dogmatism that most scientists have to laugh at in turn.

Let’s examine a traditionally male-dominated role that is very well-respected, and well-paid, in many parts of the world—that of a doctor. In the UK, it is listed as one of the top ten lucrative careers, and the average annual income of a family doctor in the US is well into six figures. It also confers on you significant social status, and a common stereotype in Asian communities is of parents encouraging their children to become doctors.

One of my lecturers at university once presented us with this thought exercise: why are doctors so highly paid, and so well-respected? Our answers were predictable. Because they save lives, their skills are extremely important, and it takes years and years of education to become one. All sound, logical reasons. But these traits that doctors possess are universal. So why is it, she asked, that doctors in Russia are so lowly paid? Making less than £7,500 a year, it is one of the lowest paid professions in Russia, and poorly respected at that. Why is this?

The answer is crushingly, breathtakingly simple. In Russia, the majority of doctors are women. Here’s a quote from Carol Schmidt, a geriatric nurse practitioner who toured medical facilities in Moscow: “Their status and pay are more like our blue-collar workers, even though they require about the same amount of training as the American doctor… medical practice is stereotyped as a caring vocation ‘naturally suited‘ to women, [which puts it at] a second-class level in the Soviet psyche.”

What this illustrates perfectly is this—women are not devalued in the job market because women’s work is seen to have little value. It is the other way round. Women’s work is devalued in the job market because women are seen to have little value.

The real problem is [Christina Hoff Sommers’] claim that because girls don’t play games anyway, and boys do, it’s only natural that game makers would tend to include sexy women in their products. This launches fundamental economic precepts so directly into the sun that it cannot be accidental. You’ve got a growing base of women playing games and evidence that college women aren’t playing games at the same rate as men; that’s evidence of a massive untapped body of game players who should be catered to directly, not that gaming should run far and fast back the way it came and hope the girls never find it. This is the shallow reasoning that allows arguments like, “Duh, video games are a business” to fester in comment sections. Of course they’re a business—and this is bad business by any measure.

I won’t preface or clarify any statement I make with “some men” instead of “men”.

It’s too many men, and it’s not enough men, but it’s always men.

I don’t need to explain or justify myself, because those people of quality I hope to reach know and understand who I am…

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

I am honestly so uncomfortable when people wear those bracelets and shirts.

New Feminist Fridays video! (Well, technically Saturday.)

What is White/Male Privilege?

Also, now with captions for people who are deaf/hard of hearing!

punkgender:

one of the worst things about becoming educated on social issues is when people are like ‘you used to have a sense of humor’

no i used to have internalized prejudices which i’ve worked really hard to overcome and i realize now that your jokes are shitty

problackgirl:

we’ve taught girls to romanticise nearly everything a boy does. when i was younger i thought it was cute that boys chased the girl even after she said no. i loved it when after a girl moved away from a kiss, the guy would pull her back and force it on. i thought a guy saying ‘i won’t take a no for an answer’ was passionate and romantic. we’re literally always teaching girls to romanticise abusive traits.

Now remember, a lady rides sidesaddle, NOT astride. Your mother would be in hysterics at the very idea that a daughter of hers would ride a werewolf astride! Why, next you’ll be showing ankle…

I may have found my new favourite thing.
