One year, I taught this (Sociological theory) class and only used female writers. The journals were written by women, the textbook was written by females. Do you know what kind of responses I got on my student evaluations that year? {…} That I was biased, that I was only looking from one point of view… that I was basically a man eater. That’s the kind of things I’d get from the students… The semester before, I used only male writers. Do you think I got any kind of feedback like that then?

I know! Every time I talk about men’s issues on FB (such as the stigma of them crying in public), everyone’s okay with it, but then I talk about female issues and everyone’s like “WAT ABOUT DAH MENZ”

mainstream tumblr feminism may have many glaring faults but it has bred an army of teenage girls who understand the common ways that misogyny is reinforced in society and who know that they’re better off loving their fellow woman than fighting with her and that’s actually pretty damn revolutionary

((Just as promised, I drew a thing. 

Inspired by this song. a.k.a. Laura and Chey’s new favorite thing. Featuring a role reversal of the traditional gender tropes of country music. 

This was way too much fun. But I should have posted it sometime when you’re all not distracted by Sharknado… lol))

The fact that most guys’ first response to a woman wanting equality is “SO CAN I HIT U NOW” is sort of terrifying
Like that’s the first thing you’re concerned about? I just want equal pay and you want to punch me in the face? Cool cool





Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.

What’s it like to work alongside so many other women of color?

It would be absurd to create a modernized version of Elizabeth Bennet who wasn’t a feminist. A woman who speaks her mind, holds out for what she wants, and is loved and valued for who she is — she was as feminist as she could be in 1813.
