why-we-dont-need-feminism
I don’t need feminism because I have morals and ethical view on the world. I work hard for what I earn and I don’t blame others for my misgivings. I don’t need someone else to tell me what to do for my body. I take responsibility for my own actions. First wave feminists didn’t fight for women to wear pants instead of long and restrictive dresses for women nowadays to wear practically nothing. Sexy is not showing skin, it is leaving room for imagination, it is being mysterious.

I hear my mom shrieking downstairs, shouting up to me about “THE CATS! THE CATS!”

I run downstairs, thinking someone has died or something and see THIS:

I FEEL LIKE I NEED TO PUNCH SOMETHING TO GET OVER THE ADORABLENESS

They look like they’re about to break out in a musical number

This post got better since I re-blogged it earlier.

For the past few days I’ve had trouble typing auto correct wanted to capitalize random words that shouldn’t be capitalized and yet not capitalize ones like I, it also had no suggestions when it said I had spelt words wrong. Over the course of these five days I’ve written-

A German essay (2 pages)
A comparison literary paper (7 pages)
7 chapters for a novel I’m writing (178 pages)
Countless Instagram and face book posts and messages
Countless texts
Three history paper write ups (about four pages each)

So it really started to bother me… Upon looking into this I had turned on my German keyboard and never turned it off… Guys I wrote the equivalent length of the bible (counted the text message words) while using an non English keyboard and managed to get a 100% on all my graded assignments along with a publisher interested in my plot lines and excited to read more and possibly make a deal….except for my German essay which I got a 7% on and have to redo.

If I could survive that and be awesome while not knowing how to spell nessicary I think anything is possible.

Thanks AFPE

Can i just tell you I love the amount of sass dripping from this response, it’s utter perfection

the fragility

Because there aren’t girls stickers My god you must be so oppressed

Except of course there are girl stickers.
Aren’t they pretty :)

And of course the girl stickers would be deemed as  ’perpetuating gender roles’ and ‘forcing societies standards of femininity on young girls’. Which actually I wouldn’t disagree with except for the fact that this company makes loads of different stickers, many of which are gender neutral….
However, the question I have is this..
Why are the girl stickers the fault of society, whereas the boy stickers are seemingly the fault of boys themselves and their ‘fragility’?
Why is it oppression when gender roles are forced on girls, but when they are forced on boys it is a-ok?
Hm?
