liberal social justice is saying “don’t discriminate against poor people” instead of “why are people poor in the fucking first place”
Right. Liberal politics are the equivalent of seeing someone tied down as they’re struck by an automatic swinging dagger and walking up to put a bandaid on one of the wounds—instead of unhinging the swinging dagger.
when men speak in women’s studies/lit/history classes
Honestly me when practically any man is around
Can someone give me an actual example of a female hero who is portrayed as a “tomboy”?
Literally every female hero is hyper feminine.
This is such a common thread and it really drives me up the wall… Like this post is literally describing most of sailor moon and totally spies, they use beauty products to fight. And as far as adult superheroes/fighters go, all the female characters are highly sexy and feminine. The ONLY thing I can think of that has actual, non sexualized tomboy fighter characters is game of thrones, and they’re not even heroes or anything, or maybe the girl in kickass, who isn’t even a tomboy she just has massive amounts of internalized misogyny. Where does this imaginary invisibility complex come from in regards to feminine heroes in media? Every female hero on big screens is feminine!!! Maybe I can see something like “I wish feminine heroes in media made for adults didn’t have to be so sexualized for the male gaze”? That would be a totally valid complaint. Asking for “less tomboys” when there is basically NO representation for tomboys/butch/gender nonconforming women is so… So selfish and hurtful.
Look at this old garbage ask I found hoarded in the depths of my inbox.
What shit lol
lessons from the previous generation: ur staring at the wrong screen
That fact that ‘Fight Club’ is being taught seems — to me — to underscore the dearth of novels that explore male issues. The past years have given us so many books, from ‘The Color Purple’ to ‘The Joy Luck Club’ to ‘How to Make an American Quilt,’ which depict women in groups and relationship, but almost no books depicting social models for men. That’s my two cents worth.
i am sitting here SCREAMING with laughter
what world do you live in chuck palahniuk
and how can i live in this world with a dearth of novels that explore male issues
showing this to everyone who tries to argue that palahniuk is being ironic and mocking masculinity and ‘male issues’ in fight club
I think at least two rules of Fight Club are being broken by this class.
"almost no books depicting social models for men"
Oh wait, you were serious?
Fight Club was published in 1996.
The Color Purple was published in 1982
Joy Luck Club was published in 1989
(and note how these are both books about women of color)
They are not books “the past years” have given us, you IGNORAMUS. THEY WERE PUBLISHED THIRTY YEARS AGO. YOUR BOOK IS MORE CONTEMPORARY THAN THEY ARE.
Translation: “Me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me. I am uncomfortable when we are not about me. Me.
Also, I am so lost in the Manbox, I think dudes beating the crap out of each other qualify as a social model for men.”
like, people make fun of other people for having complex starbucks orders but what the fuck is the problem with it? it’s not like you have to have what they’re ordering, it’s their fucking drink, not yours. you can just sit there with your bitter filter coffee and i’ll be over here with my white mocha with hazelnut living the whipped cream fucking dream you catastrophic pavement slab
This is the most pointless thing to be this intense about

So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.
Is this true?
Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to use their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.
There’s a documentary about this on Netflix called Pink Ribbons, Inc. if anyone’s interested.
