Just gonna leave this here…
dont forget in the states :
100% of men can be drafted
0% of women can be drafted.
just gonna leave these here for you guys who are getting pissy over my ‘white privilege’ post
Now, I’m not all anti-social justice, but you certainly can’t ignore these facts.
But let’s take a guess as to why women generally are prohibited from serving on the front lines in warzones, and why they are discouraged from working in the industrial sector? Patriarchal expectations of appropriate roles for men and women based on gender.
Who commits the majority of homicides? Men.
Why are men more likely to commit suicide instead of seeking help for their problems? It’s those pesky patriarchal gender roles again, equating emotions with femininity and therefore weakness, which discourages men from talking about their problems.
As for the custody thing, the majority of custody decisions are agreements made between both parents, which again, are probably overdetermined by patriarchal assumptions about gender that paint women as being more nurturing and therefore better parents than men.
So, although the person who made this clearly wanted to argue that male privilege doesn’t exist, what they actually did was make a pretty good graphic illustrating the ways in which patriarchal expectations and structures within a society hurt men as well as women, which, since feminism is actually aimed at dismantling the patriarchy is why men also need feminism.
Reblogging for that comment
*sigh* Jo’s hair is beautiful. I’ve gotten to the episodes where Jared is walking around with a broken arm.
starting today, december 1st, and running until december 31st we are kicking off a month-long celebration of dean selfcest — deancest. what’s better to warm up these long, winter afternoons than dean being loved and doted on by no one else other than himself?
whether it’s dean smith and dean winchester taking a bubble bath listening to sarah mclachlan, or endverse!dean and dean winchester cuddling in the wreckage of the impala the night before taking on lucifer, or all three plus preseries!dean playing seven minutes in heaven on their birthday, we’re here to gather all the deancest and spread the self-love around!
write fics and ficlets; make graphics and gifs; debate which combination is the best (s1!dean and s9!dean, to let him see how far he’s come? deans from odd-numbered seasons? all of them at once?); or maybe just let it all out in all kinds of posts, capslock or not, all of your feelings and headcanons about deancest. it’s simply 31 days — or more, we all want it — of deancest-related goodness that anybody can take part in.
just be sure to tag it as #deancest or #deancestdecember and we’ll reblog it for other deancest fans to enjoy.
happy deancest december, everybody! (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Men categorize women in one of four ways:
Mothers, virgins, sluts and bitches.
Of course none of the above is suitable for the modern business woman.
But you can create your own image by selecting pieces of each archetype that work for you.
The sexual attractiveness of the slut.
The wisdom of the mother.
The integrity of the virgin.
The independence of the bitch.
This leaves men confused and unable to pigeonhole you.
What they are forced to do instead is take you seriously.
been waiting for this for ages yo
