Shoutout to fellow feminists, it’s our duty to care about ALL our sisters… and to listen to what they say about themselves, not what anyone else says about them.

This really just needs to be understood but people just don’t want to.

Blurred Lines parody by Auckland Uni law students

Hilariously, this version is somehow more controversial than the awful original, and has been removed from youtube.

Never tell a bitch that she gotta drop a size.
You wanna box gap? Show me your six pack.
Wanna landing strip? You’d better get ripped.
I apologise if you think my lines are crass,
Tell me how it feels to get verbally harassed.

(Chorus)
So we can fuck this man’s world,
With all its bullshit,
Girls don’t deserve it.
We ain’t good girls:
We are scholastic,
Smart and sarcastic,
Not fucking plastic.
Listen mankind!
If you wanna get nasty,
Just don’t harass me:
You can’t just grab me.
That’s a sex crime!
Yeah we don’t want it -
It’s chauvinistic.
You’re such a bigot!

New favourite Blurred Lines parody.

BRILLIANT. Haven’t seen the original but this is amazing in it’s own right

12 amazingly cruel anti-suffregette cartoons from the 19th century

wow.

notice how the anti-feminist rhetoric hasn’t changed? “Oh, you’re a feminist? you must never get laid, haha! that’s why you want equal rights for women!”

Guys still make jokes like this and that is horrible and frightening

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Interview

It’s baffling that Hollywood is still saying people don’t want to see movies about girls. It’s even more infuriating that they would ask to change such an integral part of the story because they don’t think it would sell with a female protagonist.

A feminism comic I did for my uni’s newspaper. I wish I had a bit more time to work on it, but I’m pleased with how it came out considering the tight deadline!

One of the criticisms of Breaking Bad that keeps coming up is over the female characters. Skyler White is seen by some as this henpecking woman who stands in the way of all of Walt’s fun.
Man, I don’t see it that way at all. We’ve been at events and had all our actors up onstage, and people ask Anna Gunn, “Why is your character such a bitch?” And with the risk of painting with too broad a brush, I think the people who have these issues with the wives being too bitchy on Breaking Bad are misogynists, plain and simple. I like Skyler a little less now that she’s succumbed to Walt’s machinations, but in the early days she was the voice of morality on the show. She was the one telling him, “You can’t cook crystal meth.” She’s got a tough job being married to this asshole. And this, by the way, is why I should avoid the Internet at all costs. People are griping about Skyler White being too much of a killjoy to her meth-cooking, murdering husband? She’s telling him not to be a murderer and a guy who cooks drugs for kids. How could you have a problem with that?”

Vince Gilligan, at Vulture, talking about the final season of Breaking Bad

Just going to leave that there.

Vince Gilligan thinks you’re a misogynist for being….a misogynist.
