I think it’s important, when faced with clothing that doesn’t fit or look right on your body, to remember it is the clothing styles that are limited, not you.
honestly, when I go shopping, which I hate for a variety of reasons, I think the way clothes are generally proportioned, at whatever size, are mind-bogglingly uncommon. but I find it really easy to center the concept of “normal” on myself.
"Understand that, in real life, there is no such thing as objective neutrality. Everything that everyone does, at all times and places, occurs within some kind of political context - even if you’re stranded alone on a desert island, the absense of society still contributes towards this context. You can assume you will not be arrested for scrumping the odd coconut, for example."
Great article which breaks down the links between dominant and subaltern culture and the kind of games these produce.(via ilikelookingatnakedmen)
so I guess this it is: the end of summer (as we know it).
the start of our next new nuclear winter.
a nation with no collective memory
is in no position to teach history.
"it doesn’t matter" anyway
it’s about the future.
what is a future without a past?
violent, unjust, uneducated. right now.
thinking has been deemed “inappropriate”
a country with the sensitivity of a self-centered debutante
the strength and attitude of an angry, drunken football player

Yes please, explain to me again how this has nothing to do with sexism.
[TRIGGER WARNING for EVERYTHING]….
you shouldn’t read this. it’s gross. but it’s so insane that these people think sexism isn’t a problem while they threaten to rape someone just for saying sexism is a problem. it’s like that ‘keep r******* white’ sign. how do you write that out without pausing for a minute and being like ‘hunh’.
but that said, these are the questions I wish I could ask these fools:
1. if being a money grubbing liar is grounds for rape and murder, where do they stand on people like Donald Trump?
2. if being a money grubbing liar is grounds for rape and murder, what is a suitable punishment for rape or murder? where do these guys stand on Darren Wilson’s not having even been charged with anything?
3. do these folks who think Sarkeesian is a money grubbing liar think that journalists, sociologists and anthropologists are generally involved in the cultures they study and report on?
