  5. Anonymous said: Not being rude but why do you go on about women all the time? Why are you a feminist? It's 2014... You can vote and work and wear trousers.

    catscratch-fever:

    Short answer: Because I’m woman.

    Long answer:

    Because misogyny is real and can be fatal.
    Because it’s common for people to question every inch of a woman’s life when she reports a rape or sexual assault (what were you wearing? how much did you drink? was it dark out? were you alone? did you know the guy liked you? why didn’t you go home? did you not say no?)
    Because in many countries, women are forced to marry their rapist, carry their baby, live a life of non-consensual sex.
    Because people ask if my boyfriend minds that I earn more than him.
    Because women who have kids and work are called bad mothers and women who have kids and stay at home are lazy or benefit scroungers.
    Because when I go out to bars I frequently get touched inappropriately and laughed at when I protest.
    Because I can’t walk alone in the dark without fearing for my safety and knowing I’m not being irrational.
    Because I get asked “do you actually like Star Wars or are you just into it to look cool?”
    Because ‘girl’ and ‘weakness’ are synonymous to so many people.
    Because if I like sex, I’m a slut, and if I don’t, I’m a prude.
    Because when I grew out my body hair, people gave me dirty looks and made nasty comments.
    Because so many jokes involve misogyny, tired stereotypes, and a complete lack of respect for women and girls.
    Because jobs that are traditionally seen as “women’s work” are paid much less (childcare, cleaning, catering).
    Because there is a pay gap between men and women (in the UK, women earn on average £5k less).
    Because when I’m assertive, I’m a bitch. A man is just assertive.
    Because when I’m emotional I’m PMSing, I’m irrational, I’m hysterical. A man is passionate.
    Because when women are victims of domestic violence people say, ‘if they stay, they deserve it’.
    Because a man being called a girl is supposed to be an insult.
    Because men get attacked for dressing like women.
    Because I read an article today about teenage mothers and how they “lack self-respect”.
    Because I know people who have been fired for taking time off after a miscarriage.
    Because going on maternity leave can cost you your job.
    Because every time I tag a post on here with ‘feminism’, a man reblogs it and tries to tear it apart.
    Because in many countries girls do not have the same access to education that boys do.
    Because I get compliments that end with “… For a girl” (I can run fast for a girl, I can punch hard for a girl, I’m smart for a girl…)
    Because the way the media portray women is hugely skewed from reality.
    Because women are expected to shave and wax and exfoliate and put on make up and dye their hair and style their hair and never look tired or old or fat and smell like a fresh garden of flowers and smile and giggle.
    Because a fat woman is disgusting but a fat man enjoys his food.
    Because I should be happy with being able to vote and work and wear trousers and ignore the inequality I experience in my life and that occurs the world over.

    Because this list is never ending.
    Because feminism is a dirty word.

    Because women do not have the same right and privileges available to them as men.


    And because I continue to get questions like this.

    Spend 7 minutes of your life watching this show on gendered marketing

    This is brilliant. I specifically buy razors and shaving cream marketed to men because it’s at least 30% cheaper in the US, and yet the quality is way better. 

    Really interesting vid on gender marketing. Anyone who buys anything should watch it!

  9. thats-slightly-raven:

    i dont have time for children who refuse to eat food unless you’ve cut it into some pretty little shapes rn 827 million people in the world are starving but oh no u cant eat some fucking cucumber because mummy didnt cut a flower into it well we’ll see how much u appreciate nice patterns when i carve one into ur forehead mate now eat ur shitting salad

    So refuse to cut the food the way they want it. Then you’re teaching the child that they can’t be picky like that and it’s wasteful. They can eat the full cucumber slice or sit and wait for it to be cut into a flower and starve and die and that’s one less snotty child in the world.
