Reasons I am not a misogynist.

defenestratrix:

- or -

Let me tell you in exhaustive detail the reasons I am, in fact, probably a misogynist.

First of all, how dare you level these accusations at me. I do not hate women. Women are the best. I love women so much, I don’t want them anywhere near men in the media I consume. White men, I mean. POC are totally fine. Ha, just kidding - POC are never fine, especially if they take the place of a white man. Especially if a WOC takes the place of a white man. White man.

Women deserve equal treatment, so I hold them accountable according to the exact same standards of behavior as men. The only exceptions to this rule are when a female character does something I find objectionable to a precious male character, or holds his attention for too long, or is physically proximate to him at any time, or when she exists at all. If a male character behaves in an equally or exponentially more selfish, harmful, or deceitful way, I make sure to judge him harshly, but fairly, with total and immediate forgiveness. You don’t have to be a 24/7 hard case to be a feminist, you know. My expectations are higher for female characters because they mean so much more to me. You aren’t as progressive as I am, so you can’t understand.

Okay, alright, fine - maybe I dislike one or two particular female characters, or nearly all female characters, but that’s only because I find them so boring or divisive or treacherous. I can never create fic or meta about them because they’re so poorly written. They have nothing at all like the richly detailed lives of male characters, even ones who have never appeared on the show, but who I have squealed about obnoxiously at length. Personally, I hold the writers responsible. They obviously don’t know anything about women, like the fact that they should all be men. Is that my fault? Is my own miserable lack of imagination truly the source of my failure? Am I to blame for being so tragically dull and ill-equipped as a fan and human being that I am utterly incapable of fleshing out the lives of female characters, so I discount them completely from my interpretation of the show and its fanworks? Maybe. Whatever. I wish there were women with interesting, layered backgrounds, distinctive personalities, and inarguably important, pivotal roles, I really do - but it’s difficult to see them when I’m so worried about their subjugation by relationships with men. Those poor women characters deserve so much better than the abuse I can happily imagine a male character enduring.

Can I get a karaoke rendition of R-E-S-P-E-C-T up in here? Yeah, snaps!

To that end, I would never support a m/f ship. Heteronormativity is run amok in the media. So old and staid. I don’t acknowledge any sexual orientation apart from het and gay, though, because it’s go binary or go home, and I know which team I’m on. That’s right: any one that erases the possibility of bisexual, pansexual, asexual, and aromantic characters. Though if one of my preferred pairing isn’t gay, it’s perfectly fine for him to be asexual. Because I assume that asexual is synonymous with complete dissociation and better alone than oppressing a woman, I always say. And frankly, women shouldn’t be threatened by gay men. Any real feminist ships gay men in favor of anything else, since I’m pretty sure that support of LGBQT people equates to the rabid exclusion of any other orientation, but ‘G.’

Remember that representation is for everyone. Especially for women, but more importantly, for white men. Particularly white men I can imagine locked together in a sweaty, mawkish romance. Particularly only white men, ever. It’s called being inclusive, look it up. If you think the only reason I dislike any female character is because of my fixation on getting two vanilla pudding jackasses to stage whisper naughty secrets into each others’ peeholes, then you clearly haven’t read my list of straw man arguments that only prove you right.

Who’s the misogynist now? Not me, lady-hater.

Funfact: The term “cisgender” and “cis” has been used since 1994 at least. Tumblr began operation in 2007. Tell me again how this is a tumblr made term.

Laverne Cox was purposefully kept off the Times 100 list. 

Just let that sink in.

Oh and before you come at me, I do not care what you say because she was well over 90 fucking percent

If you don’t think that’s utterly fucking disgusting and transmisogynist then I have officially nothing to say to you and you may vacate my life immediately

This woman is a feminist icon. She has been raising awareness for trans rights everywhere. She is the driving force behind the Free CeCe docuementary. She is an inspiration to women everywhere

And they fucking kept her off the list.

Fuck all of your excuses this was blatant erasure and transmisogynist violence.

Anonymous asked: if you took all the time an effort you spent talking to people about veganism and used it to defend something REAL like, i dunno. HUMAN RIGHTS issues, maybe people would take you more seriously

mean-vegan:

animal agriculture is a human rights issue;

people don’t take in to consideration the conditions that the 700,000 workers on these farms have to face on a day to day basis. Workers in factory farms have a 100% turnover rate, which means that they will either get sick and have to quit or they will quit on their own accord.

the majority of workers after spending such long periods of time inside of these factory farms end up with ‘chronic respiratory disorders, exacerbation of asthma, (and) cardiovascular complications” (source) An article in the Texas Observer even goes as far as to explain how workers who are forced to brutalize animals with no empathy develop psychological issues such as PTSD. (source)

according to the United Nations: World Food Program “there are 842 million undernourished people in the world today.” (sourceIn the United States a little over 70% of grain produced (source) every year is used to feed the ten billion(source) factory farmed animals slaughtered every year for food. 

if you took the time to do the math like David Pimentel, professor of ecology at Cornell University did in 1997 you would realize that we could feed all the starving people in the world with the grain that livestock eat.(source)

Tumblr really doesn’t seem to care much about disabled people and ableism. Seriously, I’ve seen multiple posts with 1000+ notes ripping at the TIMES list (and damn rightfully so!), however I’ve only seen one about the fact that the man that made the horrendous “I Am Autism" (major tw for ableism in the video) was on the list, and it only has 15 notes.
