Feminism is not about who opens the jar.

It is not about who pays for the date. It is not about who moves the couch. It is not about who kills the bugs. It is not about who cooks the dinner. It’s not even about who stays home with the kids, as long as the decision was made together, after thinking carefully about your situation and coming to an agreement that makes sense for your particular marriage and family.

It is about making sure that nobody ever has to do anything by “default” because of their gender. The stronger person should move the couch. The person who enjoys cooking more, has more time for it, and/or is better at it should do the cooking. Sometimes the stronger person is male, sometimes not. Sometimes the person who is best suited for cooking is female, sometimes not. You should do what works.

But it is also about letting people know that it is okay to change. If you’re a woman who wants to become stronger, that’s great. If you’re a man who wants to learn how to cook, that’s also great. You might start out with a relationship where the guy opens all the jars and the girl cooks all the meals, but you might find that you want to try something else. So try it.

like when beyonce said “i woke up this way: flawless” she’s saying that flawless is not dependent on how she looks at a given moment; by dent of being alive, just by being authentic to herself, she’s flawless. 

not “i woke up with this hair laid and makeup did and decked out clothes”. which is how everyone else apparently interpreted it.

it’s so weird that people are shaming Beyonce for being sexual during her performance when literally in the speech in flawless says “We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are." Like how do you miss the point that bad

Saturday night drinks at Bar Lafayette with my #homohomies and #faghags. We were quite obviously placing bets on whether the cute waiter was Thai or Korean. And (this goes without saying) whether he was gay or straight. 

He shift ended early that night. Dunno if we scared him away.

I cannot believe in a God who wants to be praised all the time.

Fleur Delacour, Harry noticed, was eyeing Bill with great interest over her mother’s shoulder. Harry could tell she had no objection whatsoever to long hair or earrings with fangs on them.

I love Fleur Delacour, okay? See the boy. Want the boy. GET THE BOY. KEEP THE BOY FOREVER AND DON’T CARE IF THE BOY GETS MAULED BY A WEREWOLF.

Sexually Explicit Women Are Not Skanks and Sexually Explicit Women Who Are Feminists Are Not Ruining Feminism

Beyonce doesn’t run away from the word “feminist,” instead she chooses to embrace it. First in her most recent album, with the song “Flawless” and its fantastic spoken word intro by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Nigerian feminist, and again at her VMA performance, where she proudly stood in front of a gigantic, 10-foot tall “FEMINIST” as the crowd screamed in delight.

But many narrow-minded, conservative idiots chose to look at Beyonce’s performance as a blemish on the face of feminism because Beyonce’s dance moves and lyrics were sexually explicit, and therefore, wait for it… SKANKY.

There is a huge problem here, and it is directly related to the ownership of female sexuality. Thanks to the marginalization of women since the dawn of fucking time, female sexuality is jolly good fun when presented from a male gaze, but is deplorable and horrible and dangerous for the feminist movement when presented from a female gaze.

Female sexuality and the female body exist solely for the pleasure of females. What I do with my body should not be anybody else’s concern, nor does it somehow diminish my argument for female equality. The only time you should be concerned with my ass jiggles or titty shakes is when I’ve decided you are worthy of my affection and of looking at/and or touching my independent and beautiful vagina.

SEXUALITY IS NOT A SIN, IT IS NOT AN ARGUMENT FOR MISOGYNY AND IT IS CERTAINLY NOT AN EXCUSE FOR YOU IDIOTS TO RAIN DOWN TORRENTIAL SLUT SHAMING UPON A WOMAN.

If they respect you, respect them. If they disrespect you, still respect them. Do not allow the actions of others to decrease your good manners, because you represent yourself, not others.
