I’m sorry, I can’t hear you over all those exposed pecs and abs.

7. Do you have any nicknames?
Yes! Loba, Melisandre, Regina, Evil Queen, Demi, Princess.
Loba is what my family calls me. Melisandre, Regina, and Evil Queen are what my coworker calls me because we are obsessed with Once Upon a Time and Regina is so misunderstood, has such a great heart, but will do anything for the people important to her (Henry). Plus it’s our favorite character. Melisandre because he told me I looked like her once and hasn’t SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT IT AND I AM SO MAD.
Demi is what my ex best friend used to call me.
Princess is what a few others call me because I guess I do my makeup so well? They associate princess with pretty for some reason. I hate being called princess because it sounds like a spoiled brat. But I enjoy it when this one girl says it because you can tell she doesn’t mean it in that sense.
8. So you like bubble baths?
36. Occupations you wanted to be when you were a kid?
Teacher. Just a teacher.
50. Religious or non-religious?
No religion. At all.
You look nothing like Melisandre o.O
"My boyfriend/girlfriend won’t let me"
What was that?
How lovely congratulations on your 3rd parental guardian”
But seriously if your partner won’t let you do something (eg, hang out with your friends)? That’s actually a GIANT RED FLAG for an abusive relationship, please get help or get out of there.
There are certain things and/or reasons for things that make it perfectly acceptable to “not let” your significant other do something. By that I mean, tell them that if they do it you will be angry and (depending on the severity) potentially leave them.
Obviously you can do what you want, but you’re not single anymore. Being part of a couple means that few decisions are just yours to make anymore. You have decided to share your life with someone. Act like it and expect to not get to do some of the things you used to do.

the fact that a girl being a feminist is a turn off to a lot of guys is just further proof that sexism exists they’re literally saying they don’t want a girl who requires respect because that’s just no fun
Despite what you may think, being a feminist and requiring respect are not the same thing, and as a man I can (and do) respect women and still hate the feminist movement.
Feminism long ago stopped being about promoting equality for women and became just about promoting women.
So long as you use the word “feminism” and identify yourself with that movement, you’ll find people who don’t like that. That doesn’t mean those people are sexist, just means they don’t like that movement.
Whether you agree with me or anybody else about what “feminism” actually means doesn’t change the fact that I think that’s what it’s about, and disliking it has no correlation with being sexist.
Basically, someone who is really and truly sexist (and not just ignorant) is going to hate feminism (and obviously alot of the ignorant ones will too), but someone who hates feminism isn’t necessarily sexist. They’re not the same thing.
I’m an Equalist, or a Humanist. I support equality for everyone.
What the hell.
I keep refreshing my page and literally within three-five minutes, I start to see the same shit from the last time.
You guys aren’t posting much. It’s happened my last four cycles.
I think Tumblr is telling you to sleep.

What is problematic with feminist discourse about male rape is not that they don’t discuss it at all – clearly they do – or that they don’t discuss it enough. The problem is that they anomalise it, that is to say, they treat it as some kind of anomalous variant of rape which, according to them, is something which normally happens to women. The latter is simply “rape”. Rape that happens to men in prison is “prison rape”. Rape that happens to men outside of prison is “male rape”. The word “female” is sometimes used as an adjective with “rape” to contrast it with male rape, but “female rape” is not used by feminists as a category designation in and of itself. It’s just “rape”. “Male rape” and “prison rape” sometimes get their own threads, effectively discoursive ghettos. But they are often excluded from threads about “rape”.
If rape that happens to women is “rape”, it follow that “rape” is something which happens to women. This equivalence is reinforced by the interchangeability in feminist (and, due to its influence, in mainstream) discourse between the ostensibly gender-neutral (but implicitly gendered) functional category “rape” and the explicit gender category “violence against women”. The overall effect is to render male rape invisible outside of the ghetto.
What the ghetto threads do is give the appearance of addressing these issues positively, while ensuring that male sexual victimisation remains a marginalised topic. Since male victims are already marginalised to the point of invisibility within mainstream society, the effect is to preserve and extend gender inequality contrary to feminism’s stated aim.
The same analysis applies to domestic violence.

Some of these are terrible examples of this sentiment. Sansa Stark, Catelyn Stark, and Cersei Lannister are all completely defined by their relationships, mostly with men and boys, and all of their actions, especially Cersei and Catelyn, up to the end of the TV Show so far are guided by that dynamic.
(No I have not read the books, nor will I. In fact, I was basically forced to even watch the show. But these gifs are from the show, so don’t try to argue from the books.)
i love him.
was not expecting this to get more than 10 notes tbh omg
can we talk about how this person is not at all surprised…which probably means he does this often….ok where can i buy a boyfriend like this?
How did you not expect this to get more than ten notes?
I can be this boyfriend. Now I just need a girlfriend that is ok with this
Waiting for the day one of his friends dresses up and does this and she has no idea.
Yes I do, whether male or female. That’s the entire point of respect. For example, I don’t respect you in the slightest right now. And what are you going to do about it?
Also, if you can force people to respect you, you’re not an oppressed group in the first place.
Wait a second, wasn’t it only a few months ago that these same women were crying about comic loving girls being MOBBED by nerds? Wasn’t the problem originally about nerds falling all over any female who showed up? Female cosplayers on here were complaining about dudes coming onto them. Now, suddenly these same women are being shamed and bashed for lack of nerd creds and now suddenly they’re accusing cosplayers of being attention seekers?
Think about it. She’s got like two opposing realities coexisting peacefully inside her head. How frigging awesome is that!
Some of the SJWs, yes. Sexual harassment at cons is allegedly a big deal (I wouldn’t know.). In fact, I think many of them still are; just wait ‘til con season.
It’s ironic that you point that out, when she’s busy conflating the men - and she assumes it’s men - who design skimpy costumes, and the alleged epidemic of people shaming “fake geek girls” for wearing them. Yaya Han, Omi Gibson, and Jessica Nigri wouldn’t be as popular as they deservedly are if that were the case.
It’s also ironic that this is being reblogged by feminists, when feminists also habitually shame men who “express themselves in ways they don’t approve of”. In fact, that’s the entire point of this gifset.
I like how she’s trying to place women in a superposition; it’s their choice to wear the costumes, but its men’s fault that the costumes are skimpy. Considering that many women regularly cosplay as the opposite gender, blaming it on men alone is ludicrous. What, is no one going to recognize you if you cover up Power Girl’s boob window? Just stick a power symbol in there, it’ll look awesome.
I was looking at this gifset and getting just angry that another one of these was reblogged, and then I read these fantastic responses. Thank you all, for I have nothing left to add.
I’m just going to sit here and enjoy the fact that a liberal/feminist view was actually not blindly lauded on Tumblr for once.
When men find women’s anger amusing, it only serves as a reminder of one thing. He doesn’t take you seriously. He finds solace in the fact that he is bigger and stronger than you. You realize this? That man who thought your anger was “cute” doesn’t think you can be threatening because he thinks he can assault you with ease.
Men aren’t afraid of us screaming in their faces, or passionately debating their bullshit. They are, however, fucking terrified of women gathering and being angry together. They don’t laugh at that, do they?
Of course it didn’t occur to you that in some cases the man just thinks ANYTHING you do is cute, because he loves you. Because men are evil, amirite?
