Just your daily reminders:
- Racists are a problem
- White people are not
- Homophobes are a problem
- Straight people are not
- Transphobes are a problem
- Cis people are not
- Sexists are a problem
- Men are not
And most importantly,
- Hating an innocent person solely because of their race, sexuality, or gender makes you a fucking asshole

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.
Okay, let me explain why this is not “a prime example of women’s inequality”
Chris Brown around the time the scandal leaked was blacklisted from almost all radiostations, hell, even big name stores blacklisted his album.
He lost his deal with Wringly, which was a big paying deal. The industry promptly shunned him do mitigate any association with him following the scandal.
Do you know why he bounced back? because he’s rich
This had less to do with him being male and more to do with the fact that he has money
I’m all for feminism but when you try to skew facts and twist the truth in your own favor you’re playing the exact game this institutionalized patriarchy wants you to play.
If you wanted to post about the apotheosis of female injustice then maybe mention that less than 3% of the artists in the Modern Art section of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art are women, but 83% of the nudes are female.
That’s why i particularly love the GorillaGirls’ approach as they list the facts, we need more feminist movements similar to them. http://nmwa.org/advocate/get-facts
(also Kristen stewart will probably bounce back after a year or two as well, because once again, rich)
"Turn left. You monster."
“Oh, you missed your turn. That’s alright. It’s not like I gave you an advanced warning or anything. Oh wait. I did. Three of them.”
“Now I have to recalculate the entire route. Again. By myself.”
“Congratulations. You’ve gotten us so lost even I don’t know where we are.” *slow clap*
