I hate it when people define “being a fan” as “remembering every single detail ever”. I have a lousy memory. Sometimes, I forget what I had for breakfast. Sometimes, I forget I even had breakfast.
the hunger games aren’t amazingly unique or flawless or anything but I think katniss as a character is very important and i think the media misunderstands
we aren’t in it for the cute boys. we’re in it for katniss. thousands of young girls were introduced to an introverted, angry girl born into poverty and watched her become the savior of the world and the media doesn’t seem to understand that she, as a character, is important to girls. not who she dates, but her
Okay, so as many of you already know, I replied to that post, “I’d very much like to punch a feminist” and I have gotten a lot of attention from the tumblr community almost entirely supportive/positive but I got a few messages that were questioning why I was getting praise for just being a male feminist. I believe that the sad truth isn’t just there are a lack of male feminists but also there is a lack of understanding what feminism is and why men would support it.
So that being said I want to see if people want that to change, if they want someone who would want to shed some light on the topic but also to share their thoughts, feelings, and concerns on topics like social equality. The thing is that I think that if I just started to make video posts doing so that they would fall on deaf ears and just pushed aside.
So what I am asking for is proof that I am wrong, so if this post gets over 10,000 notes before christmas eve, I will personally start an open video blog where anyone can ask me about what feminism/equality means to me, my feelings on social rights topics, and give any insight I could offer from heterosexual cis gender males point of view.
If you don’t use an empty house to sing obnoxiously and off key in your underwear you are doing life wrong
Essex social services obtained a High Court order against the woman that allowed her to be forcibly sedated and her child to be taken from her womb.
The council said it was acting in the best interests of the woman, an Italian who was in Britain on a work trip, because she had suffered a mental breakdown.
If you are not absolutely terrified and outraged by this you are wrong. The precedent this sets put every person on earth in danger.
oh my god read the article this is FUCKING HORRIFIC. she got back on her bipolar disorder medication and is in recovery but they won’t give her her child back “because of the risk she might relapse”. What you’re fucking saying with that is that mentally ill people shouldn’t even be allowed children even if they’re safe and well *just in case*, that we’re a permanent threat to ourselves and others even when we’re in treatment and recovery and living a stable life. I am FUCKING LIVID
Over a fucking panic attack. I’m fucking serious, all of this over a single panic attack. They took her baby in the most horrific way possible because she had a fucking panic attack.
From the Article:
She suffered a panic attack, which her relations believe was due to her failure to take regular medication for an existing bipolar condition.
It’s worth noting, that it’s very common for people on psychiatric medication to go off of their meds if they become pregnant, because of risk of side effects.
I bolded the above. I wanted there to be no one to think that she was being irresponsible for not haven taken her meds regularly. She did it for good reason, for the health of her own baby. And she got punished for it.
i fucking cant
So she did what was best for her kid, has ONE SINGLE PANIC ATTACK WHICH IS A THING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE WHETHER THEY HAVE A MENTAL ILLNESS OR NOT and decide that they can literally violate her body in a horrific manner and take her kid away. But she’s the dangerous one.
Terribly sad. I hope this gets worked out in her benefit.
He’s such a sarcastic little shit I love it.
