this guy was watching the vmas with me and now he’s educating himself how precious is that
he keeps asking me all these questions about aspects of feminism and he’s like “so basically it’s about letting women do what they want without being judged for it” and I was like yea and he was like “oh okay that’s so simple why isn’t everyone a feminist” it’s precious
update: I banged him
Wow that escalated sharpish! Well done!
“My mom died from diabetes and my dad was murdered. I’m in college, and I’m about to launch my own clothing line, as well as a non-profit organization.”
“How were you able to succeed despite losing your parents? Did you have a grandmother or someone who helped you?”
“Actually, I’m the one helping my grandmother. I was the type of kid who had strong ambitions—challenges drove me. I was presented with so many obstacles that I was expected to fail at everything: I wasn’t supposed to graduate from high school, I wasn’t supposed to go to college. But I never failed. No one in my family ever went to college—I’m breaking that chain.”
How can rape by giving a drug or intoxicant to a person that renders them unable to give consent have a minimum sentence of 0-15 years but possession of drugs without being used for rape has a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years to life?
its almost like we have legalized the systematic oppression of women and people of color
Just because it sells doesn’t necessarily mean it’s good. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
I didn’t mention anything about quality, only sales figures.
This is fantastic. I love it. There are guys out there who are so threatened by the prospect of a female-led title doing well that when it does do well their response is “well it’s probably not any good.”
Fun fact: throughout the bulk of Western history, commercial success was considered a mark of quality for a piece of art. Disdain for commercial success curiously came into vogue in Western critical circles at about the same time that female creators started making major inroads in producing commercially successful art and literature - and many historians believe that this is no coincidence.
In other words, dismissing commercially successful works on the grounds that commercial success is no measure of quality is not merely a typical response to works by female creators: it has been argued that the very notion of holding commercially successful works in disdain simply for the fact of that success was, itself, invented in order to shift the goalposts and keep women out of the “real artists” club.
I still need to read this series so bad
I love how as soon as someone mentions that, in contrast to what comic bros claim, a WoC-centric title that doesn’t cater to straight white cis men is selling incredibly well, all of a sudden they’re concerned with whether or not the comic is “good” or “quality”. LMFAO ok.
the internet summed up in one gif set
