I don't want kids when I grow up.
You'll change your mind when you get older. You're only 12. You're too young to know what you want.
How could you be so stupid? Do you know anything about safe sex? You should be ashamed.
I'm a single mother with an infant son.
You should've gone to college first. You need a stable career before you can support a child.
I'm married and my spouse and I both have stable careers. I have two young daughters now.
You're not staying home? Who's going to take care of them? You're just going to put them in day care while you work? That's selfish of you. You can't expect to raise decent kids with a full-time job.
I just had my first child.
Why would you have a child when you're that old? Do you realize the health risks of being pregnant at your age? When your kid is a teenager you'll be a senior citizen. That's inconsiderate of you.
I haven't had any children.
Your life must be so unfulfilling. Is there something wrong with you? Why didn't you want kids? How strange.
The reason that guys think that periods aren’t that bad is because we hide it so well, I know girls who vomit because they’re cramps are so bad but you will never hear them complain and if that isn’t the toughest shit then get out of my face.
Yes. So please excuse me if I get a little bit snappy due to a mixture of taking meds they give other people after extensive surgery and still being in pain.
the goals of feminism will never be achieved if we continue to put down transwomen
idc about ur radfem garbage because by excluding transwomen for being “men invading our space” is gross and cissexist and yes you are the fucking problem
The goal of feminism is female liberation. Can you explain how excluding males from the movement inhibits it from achieving that goal?
transwomen are not men
And aditionally to above statement:
The goal of liberating women from oppression by social stigma can only be achieved if we understand all social stigma, not only those about women.
We can’t go on about how women aren’t the weaker sex et al and leave the notion of men being stronger. Which, you know, has been an issue for men who are more likely to suffer from anxiety now during their adolescent years than girls.
Men aren’t the problem, societal roles that are oppressive for everyone are. And it’s not only men enforcing those roles, it’s often mothers, sisters, girlfriends that try to keep ‘their own’ in check.
Feminism will be inhibited from achieving its goals by excluding males by losing their support and seeming like the man-hating, bitchy, holier-than-thou stereotype that ruined its image for so long.
Sometimes I start following a fan blog because of the nice pictures. But then people almost ruin the subject itself for my be posting increasing numbers of uncomfortable text posts about their personal (sexual) obsession with the blog’s subject. Urgh.
Until this week I never knew that an engagement ring and a wedding ring are different things? I’ve never seen anyone wearing them both at once. Where does the other one go? Why don’t guys have two rings? I am still kind of confused about how this all works. Straight people, please explain this alien ritual to me.
Engagement rings are sort of a promise to your partner (traditionally from man to woman, b’cause, you know, history and stuff) that you’re going to marry them. Engagement used to be a far more legally binding and complex thing than it is now (i.e., calling banns).
Some women wear their engagement ring with their wedding ring, sometimes having them joined, sometimes switching sides to make room for their wedding rings. In recent history wedding rings were mostly worn by women as men didn’t do the whole jewellery thing. Only in the last couple of decades men started to wear their wedding rings.
I do however know a guy who proposed to his girlfriend and they both wore engagement rings.
Though I am by no means an expert, it’s all just research for fiction.
"Some people say it’s time for the Doctor to be played by a woman. I say it’s time for the Queen to be played by a man."
Fuck off, Moffat.
THAT WAS A BLOODY JOKE WHY ARE PEOPLE SO URGH
Because it’s still sexist as fuck…
What does that have to do with anything? And maybe instead of telling people not to get offended, you should get over your white male privileged view of the world and ask people why they get offended.
Get over my white male privileged view of the world? Thankyou for assuming that I don’t know why people are offended or why people think about Moffat like he does, I am fully aware of issues with the world outside of my own thankyou very much. As for Helen Mirren playing the Queen it has everything to do with it. Moffat said that she had been saying how the Doctor should be a woman then told the joke.
You realize those are two completely different things, right? I doubt she was joking about it, considering that’s been a big topic of discussion lately. The reason being that a female Doctor would teach young girls that they can be the hero, not just the companion. It would be a GOOD THING. And so Moffat just essentially ignores that and, while he admits it was feasible in the mythos, throws it to the wayside. Because saying a man should play the Queen is just saying how she should be a king instead. Because obviously there haven’t been enough male monarchs in the long extent of English history.
I don’t think it’s that he’s saying that the Queen should be a man, he’s comparing the idea of a “female Doctor” to a highly ‘amusing’, irrational idea.
"A woman as the Doctor? Haha! Why not a male Queen?! *nudge nudge wink wink* That’d be hilarious, but nobody’d honestly think about doing it, right?!"
I don’t often get offended by the characterisation of people but Moffat has managed to piss me off for good.
Avengers (that includes any of the individual characters movies)
And pretty much anything that’s action or targeted to guys
A guy friend of mine today said it was weird that my friend had all the X-Men movies because she was a girl. Needless to say we almost threw him out of the car. So I would like to prove to him that just because we have vagina’s that doesn’t impair us from enjoying an action film.
if being 100% gay is playing for the other team then i’d like to imagine being pansexual as playing for every team. you just sort of run around between the in and outfields juggling the extra balls and sit a couple innings in the audience eating a hotdog and eventually everyone starts to question whether you even know how to play baseball or not
People used to be all “Bisexual doesn’t exist, make a choice” and now it’s all “pansexuals are just pretty little snow flake bisexuals” which shows how little people actually seem to know/think about sexuality, gender and attraction.
I can’t imagine being a third gender or none, but can imagine loving someone regardless of their gender. Or being sexually attracted to someone regardless of their sex and gender constellation.
I may not know how to play baseball by your rules, but I certainly enjoy playing by mine. :D
2479) Shortly after I came out with my identity, I got sent to a handful of counselors, ranging from my school to ones half way across the city. One of the most common questions they asked me was if I have ever worn a skirt and would I wear one. No....I really don't think I ever would. I like wearing what I kinda do now: skinny jeans, band t shirts, the occasional hipster stuff. I just found it both odd and a bit insulting that an article of clothing decided my identity according to someone else.
I think the general thing there isn’t “skirt = girl”, although it feels like it. Sometimes bio!males mistake their crossdressing and fetishising the idea of being (or being treated like) a woman for being transgender.
Naturally these men start to feel uncomfortable at some point in transitioning - some of them go as far as surgery and are naturally disappointed.
So, while it might feel insulting it’s the counsellors’ duty to figure out what’s going on.
