I LOVE movies! Have I ever felt underrepresented? No. Here are some of my Favorites.

"The Phantom of the Opera"
#TheFirstTimeISawMe "The Phantom of the Opera" Erik & I smart, disabled, & LOVE Music. Me and Erik have to be in control. I Look up to Erik, since I was 12. Erik expresses مزید frustration & disappear against Ableism in the novel, which was me as a teen.

"Closer and Closer"

It stared with a simple premise; a woman playing Peter Pan; Girls LOVE that! Something different happened, during "Ugg-A-Wugg" I couldn't understand them, which was both shocking and intriguing. Fortunately as a person with Cerebral Palsy I knew just what to do. I Promised to Help the Cast if they needed it. 12 years later "Peter Pan Live!" Made changes to "Ugg-A-Wugg" and it caused me to feel A LOT of guilt, and self-hated, But NBC had upset the Native Americans who expressed themselves on #NotYourTigerLily and I stated tweeting there to. My tweets got into the سب, سب سے اوپر Tweets my confidence grew....

I didn't know what to make of this book. The pomes are there because someone in the story is repeating them giving the narrative a disjointed feel, and of course there's the "It was all a dream" ending is as soul crushing as it is for any fantasy story. But it made me think. Alice doesn't DO much, the main focus is on her intellectual ability, and when she does hold the baby/pig is in her dream. Alice does appear to have a disability, I have Cerebral Palsy, and I spend time daydreaming about doing stuff abled-bodied people are able to do. and am very smart. Lewis Corral didn't have the opportunity to think about his story this way, and if آپ didn't you're NOT a horrible person, آپ just made the same assumption I made when I saw the (incomplete) Disney version when I was a kid. The paradox is she has physical abilities, but we don't KNOW if Alice REALLY has them because she's dreaming for all but 2 and 1/2 pages. It gives the ending meaning, anyway.

Hello. It's my first time writing an article. Well, have آپ ever been bullied یا harassed سے طرف کی men online? Have they ever criticized آپ for stating your opinion on the internet, whether it be on social media like Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, یا Youtube? And how does that make آپ feel?

It happened to me many times. That aside, let's talk a little bit about it. I feel that it originated from the non-technological world, where assertive men were considered "driven," "motivated," etc. while assertive women were called "b*tchy," "rude," یا even worse--- "bratty" یا "immature," when in reality,...

“THIS PICTURE WILL NOT CHANGE THE WORLD, BUT I STILL NEED FEMINISM AND I’M GOING TO REALLY, REALLY TELL آپ WHY”:

-and because when Nujood Ali from Yemen was 10 she got divorced

-Because black girls’ names became my classmates’ پسندیدہ “joke” when I was 11

-and because when an 11-year-old girl in Texas was raped سے طرف کی 18 men the New York Times wrote of how the girl “dressed older than her age”

-Because I started counting calories when I was 14

Look at all of the stereotypes that existed ever since the beginning of time! They're so toxic and so degrading!

Stereotype 1: Every woman needs a man (which is an issue in many high schools, even colleges and such).

Stereotype 2: All women need rescuing and constant protection.

Stereotype 3: A woman who stands up for herself is considered b*tchy, bossy, and unladylike.

Stereotype 4: A woman is supposed to be submissive and f*cking cowardly! (which is so common)

Stereotype 5: All women are less intellegent, مزید foolish, and can't learn anything.

Stereotype 6: Women are the weakest of the weak....

Have آپ ever been offended سے طرف کی those stereotypes? Well, I get offended pretty easily سے طرف کی the gender stereotypes. Whenever I get offended I would complain and stop watching یا playing the game altogether. Nearly all فلمیں and tv shows and even the video games are made سے طرف کی sexist men who think that women are not as capable as women! Let's look at one example, the movie Gremlins. It may be funny, but can be sexist. I hate that movie. It portrays women as weak, cowardly, helpless, and over FUCKING dependent! And males as too overprotective and muscly and too fucking irresistable! Gosh, I hate when...

x and y are not dissimilar . In fact they are so similar that y is called x with missing leg. If that is correct then there remain no difference in blue print . if blue print is same how can the structure erected on the basis of this can be different. Only difference must be in arrangement and for a capable mind that is no difference at all . so to say man is just the woman with clitoris enlarged as penis. Vagina stitched to be scrotum and ovaries dropped down from the tummy as testis........(Ref-man is the extension of woman)

Now i'm what I would like to call an average guy. I also like to think that I'm open minded and willing to hear any argument as long as that argument is backed up with cold hard facts.
Now as a guy i personally don't have any experience of any of the issues normally expressed سے طرف کی the feminist movement so my thoughts and opinions are always formed from سیکنڈ hand یا third hand experience (reading articles, watching YouTube ویڈیوز etc.)
Now i'm sure some of آپ are asking yourself why are آپ asking this? Well the answer is as follows.

Rebecca Mott is a woman who has survived violent, abusive prostitution and rape. Her words deserve to be heard.


Despair Hits My دل - Rebecca Mott

I have been coming back into life – I know this is good. But this post is about my confusion, my grief and my despair that I still do not understand what it is to be alive – beyond being a role.

I will write in the back parts of my mind, I will try to drag out the stuff that scares me, that blocks me, that still make wonder if I am still nothing but an object finding how to please others.

I don’t know how to be human, that it not some philosophical...

Not too long ago, I’ve been exploring the recesses of the Internet for some discussion based on Feminism-from websites dedicated to only the talk of Feminism to YouTube ویڈیوز and their comments, knowing fully well that many of the things I will view will be made سے طرف کی anti-Feminists. My expectations were only half-disappointed. I did expect the usual “Feminists are the most sexist, misandrist, selfish manginas and lesbians of the planet,” but I didn’t expect this: “black women shouldn’t have involved themselves in the white woman’s evil movement.”

Farida broke all barriers

July 11, 2012


How miserably sad and depressing. Farida Afridi, an activist for tribal women in Pakistan, was murdered today. (You know how. آپ don’t even need to look. Leaving ہوم for work. Guys on motorcycles. Guns. Died on the way to the hospital.)

Along with her sister Noor Zia, Farida was committed to social change and economic emancipation for women from the platform of a welfare organisation called the Society for Appraisal and Women Empowerment in Rural Areas (SAWERA). Both women were among the founding members of the NGO and had a Masters...

Chauvinism and Masculinism, two of the biggest anti-feminism "movements" alive and rampant in this دن and age. Since the beginning of these movements, the Feminist image has been violated to the point that even hearing the word "Feminist" brings up some ugly descriptions in the human psyche: fat, unattractive, masculine women who can't find a decent husband that want to create misery for all like they feel سے طرف کی lying about what women really want (like babies and husbands) and emasculating men, یا a big system of corporate tools brainwashed سے طرف کی powerful liberals to decimate the human race,

I wrote this quickly, so it is not great, but I hope I get my point across.

It is a shame that so many people seem to have this picture of feminists as oversensitive man-haters. That is not what it is about for me at all. It is also not about wanting to be a man, which seems to be another notion that people have. It is about women getting the same chances as men, and getting the same credit/ pay for doing the same work. It is about being tired of the fact that the phrase “girly-boy” is seen as an insult, while the phrase “like a man” is seen as a positive thing. It is about hating that...

'Feminazi' is the demonization of feminism via comparing the woman's rights movement to Adolf Hitler.

Needless to say, it is the most incompetent and insensitive terminology refering to:

A. The victims who suffered tremendously under Hitler's regime during WW2.
B. Feminism and how misunderstood it's many messages are today in modern society.

So even if آپ aren't a feminist, یا maybe even not even pro-feminist (which i can assure آپ are completely different things), آپ most definately shouldn't tolerate this fad. Here are four, quick, clear reasons simply to start آپ off. I could go on for...

A lot of آپ have probably witnessed the video for Katy Perry's part of me in which she discovers her boyfriend cheating, does a Britney and joins the armed forces in a bid to get over her turmoil and shoot little افغان children in the face.

At first sights, this is a immaculate example of feminism in the works: A young, pretty girl finds the strength to defy her boyfriend's infidelities and find her own way in life without him. It's hard imagining Perry doing anything apart from mess around with wigs and giggle...

ارے guys, there are some really inspiration stories of feminism and liberation floating around the web, so i thought i'd tell آپ how i developed my feminism....At the age of 6.

I grew up in a partiarchal family. My father suffered from grand overt narcissism, biapolar, sadomasochism and manic depressive dissorder and would beat my mother constantly. It was horrific, me and my sister watching him drink all night and then he'd come ہوم and berate my mother. If the house wasnt tidy enough, he'd smash her personal pocessions and throw things at her, screaming at her and unloading buckets of...

(Written سے طرف کی me! YAY!)

If i have sex with someone I am a massive slut.
If he has sex with someone...He's awesome.

If i get raped i "deserve it" for dressing seductively.
If he gets raped he is a victim of assault.

If I do not want sex i am a uptight, harpy-bitch.
If he does not want sex he is simply doing his own thing.

If i ask for a raise I am being demanding and agressive.
If he asks for a raise he is being assertive and ambitious.

If i become a teen parent I am a stupid girl who got what was coming to her.
If he becomes a teen parent he is a poor, unlucky kid.

If i ask for a abortion I am a cruel,...

Non-haters gonna non-hate: NiceGuy Edition
--David Futrelle

From: link




Once upon a time one of the guys over at NiceGuy’s MGTOW فورم set up a little سروے asking his fellow “nice guys” whether یا not they actually consider themselves to be misogynists; it’s been up there for years, and the site’s resident MGTOWers have been adding ووٹ and تبصرے all along. The wording of the سروے is sufficiently, ah, flexible enough to give respondents a lot of ways to wiggle out of saying explicitly that they really were misogynists:


* I despise the entire female sex. Period.
* I hate only "western"...

Glamour recently asked a bunch of guys what resolutions they wish women would make, and here they are. *facedesk*. In bold are the "translations" of these "resolutions".

1. “I’d like it if in 2012, women would stop chatting on the phone, checking their teeth in the rearview mirror, flipping their hair and drinking coffee—all while driving.” –Umberto, 29, Monroe, Conn.
