A very good way of going about explaining this issue. It’s good to see something positive come from Tumblr.

HOLY SHIT. THIS. THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO TELL PEOPLE. SHUT YOUR MOUTH ABOUT MEN VS WOMEN. @_@

this is literally so important

bigbardafree:

you know i think a lot of people (read: men) think that kirk is a womanizer because of the power fantasy aspect of his character

for all intents and purposes jim kirk is a male power fantasy: he’s a captain, he’s well respected, handsome, can hold his own in a fight (or at least we’re supposed to believe that he can despite seeing how he fights haha) and he’s very charming to women

where i think “womanizing kirk” honestly comes from is from men projecting their own male power fantasies onto kirk and for a lot of men that fantasy includes control over and objectification of woman despite kirk never having treated a woman with anything but respect

and i think that’s what makes me so uncomfortable about men who think kirk was a womanizer

they aren’t actually talking about the character they are talking about how they view the typical male power fantasy and that their fantasy includes being able to demean women without consequence 

I went to see Pompeii: The Exhibition last week. Click the link for more photos.

In light of the 50 Shades of Grey trailer coming out today, quick reminder that that book is about an abusive and controlling relationship, not BDSM.

Fanfiction (published or not) is important for women of all ages to explore gender roles and sexuality in a way that is less stigmatized and more accessible. 

But do not do the BDSM community a disservice by calling the relationship described in the book a BDSM experience.

Sometimes I just want so badly for Mrs. Turner’s ‘married ones’ to have a cameo in the last few minutes of the last episode of BBC Sherlock and to be played by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost!

Oh dear god this needs to happen. There is no good reason for this not to happen. Come on now. It’s perfect.

I am telling you now because I want you to stop telling girls and women with disabilities that we’re broken, that we need prayers, that we’re burdens, that it’s okay if someone hurts us because “they’re probably just stressed” from having to “deal” with us, or that we’re pretty “for a girl in a wheelchair.”

Stop Telling Me That I’m Pretty for a Girl in a Wheelchair: How Your Words Contribute to Violence Against Women with Disabilities

very powerful. please read the entire essay. tw for abuse and assault against women with disabilities.
