like yes, I agree, girls are 500x better than boys, but let’s stop pretending that straight girls are not giant homophobes 9 times out of 10, and do remember that they are absolutely prone to ostracizing, undermining, bullying, harassing, outing, attacking, and assaulting lesbian and bi ones
Please take a minute to generally know what’s going on in Pakistan right now.
On August 14th, Pakistan’s Independence Day, peaceful demonstrators started a march for the capital in opposition to the current prime minister. Now 17 days in to their peaceful sit in at the prime minister’s house civilians are being attacked and brutalized by the military.
They are being shot with rubber bullets, tear gas, and shells. Women and children are on the frontline, joined by lower and middle class citizens. It’s not rebels or bad people, its teachers, craftsmen, doctors.
It is hardly being reported on international media, but a peaceful protest in a democratic country is being met with such hard violence sanctioned by its military, and that’s a very very scary thing.
Headlines are making it sound like it is an equal clash, but these are UNARMED CIVILIANS, who are exercising their human right to oppose injustice. They want the current president Nawaz Sharif to resign, and are being attacked for it. Tensions in Pakistan are the direct result of the upper class elite and misuse of power by the military declaring a state of emergency to bypass laws and impose curfew on its citizens, by any force necessary.
I wish I wasn’t so annoying like I even piss myself off
lesbians = yes
lesbians marketed towards men = NO
Caitlin Stasey being the hero we all deserve.
If Kristen Stewart can lose her job, risk losing her entire career, fanbase, and respect over cheating on her boyfriend, the fact that Chris Brown is still acknowledged and celebrated is a fucking crime. If you want a prime example of women’s inequality in the media, there it is.
Actually, a more apt comparison would be Mel Gibson, Sean Penn, Gary Oldham, Sean Connery, Josh Brolin, Charlie Sheen, and Nicolas Cage. All of these white actors have had issues with domestic violence and didn’t garner nearly as much ire, legal, and career ramifications as Chris Brown. OP probably didn’t even know that these men had issues with domestic violence (allegations, convictions, etc). That’s all you need to know really.
Now, compare that to Chris Brown. He’s constantly vilified and used by white feminists as the poster boy to compare how white women are mistreated by the media. Let’s ignore that the media shits on black men more than white women. Let’s ignore this reeks of “big black boogie man” scare tactics. Every time Chris gets out of line, all his bad behavior is brought up. Let’s not forget his music was pulled off the radio. Let’s ignore that he was denied a visa to work in the UK, as he had pending charges of domestic violence. Let’s ignore that he’s never been given a pass for his behavior towards Rihanna and it’s constantly mentioned in every single article written about him, as it should be. People rail against Chris Brown all the time, but I guess because it’s mostly black women and media outlets geared towards black people, no one pays attention to that.
Why not compare the media’s treatment of Kirsten’s “affair” to Charlie Sheen’s entire career of fucking up? Charlie shot his fiancee, Kelly Preston, while he was high. Although Charlie has abused pretty much all of his wives and girlfriends, it hasn’t impacted his career one bit. He was still allowed to star in Two and a Half Men (earning $1.5MM/episode), until he was fired due to not showing up to work (not the domestic violence and drug usage). His firing led to him getting his own show on FX, Anger Management. He was a customer of Heidi Fleiss’ escort service while married, and that revelation was treated as a “wink-n-nudge”, “oh that’s just Charlie”. He has a widely known substance abuse problem that has not hindered his ability to get work in 30 years. A lot of his terrible behavior is actively downplayed, and led to him being even more popular AND garnering new fans.
Charlie Sheen is THE poster boy for being celebrated and acknowledged after AND while doing really horrible things, not Chris Brown. I guess Chris is a softer target and great for stark comparisons.
But women can never be careful enough, can we? If we take naked pictures of ourselves, we’re asking for it. If someone can manage to hack into our accounts, we’re asking for it. If we’re not wearing anti-rape nail polish, we’re asking for it. If we don’t take self-defence classes, we’re asking for it. If we get drunk, we’re asking for it. If our skirts are too short, we’re asking for it. If we pass out at a party, we’re asking for it. If we are not hyper-vigilant every single fucking second of every single fucking day, we are asking for it. Even when we are hyper-vigilant, we’re still asking for it. The fact that we exist is asking for it.
This is what rape culture looks like.
This is what misogyny looks like."
