A Million Filaments

We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.

"Repeatedly singing the words “You Suck” to Pachelbel’s Canon in D can be very soothing when people are being less than pleasant.”

I COULD NEVER HAVE FORSEEN THIS.

at first I was amused and then I just kept listening because it was beautiful and then it looped right back around to being hysterical

bigoted feminism is feminism but it’s an extremely skewed and awful version of feminism that needs to be called out and critiqued and altered. there are huge problems within the feminist movement such as racism and transphobia and transmisogyny that need to be addressed, and writing off these sort of things as “not real feminism” ignores these issues and writes off the experiences of the affected people as unimportant

heres the thing: i really, honestly think that if youre an adult and youre going to inform a child that their opinion on something is harmful on tumblr

there is literally no excuse for doing it in the form of a reblog. message them privately if you absolutely feel that it is necessary for you to engage them and that you can conduct yourself in an appropriate and gentle way

i dont think its appropriate to publicly correct a young teenager or pre-teen, especially one who you do not have any kind of a relationship with, especially in a way that shames them and exposes their mistakes to a wider adult audience

like this is honestly the minimum expectation and i thought expecting adults not to gang up on teenagers was setting the bar pretty low but you guys keep doing it over and over again

can we please stop fucking reblogging from biowarefangirlism

inquisitorcassandra:

they never source their art and frankly it’s pissing me off to see people reblogging their posts

a few quick reminders:

- that thing you did that was kind of embarrassing and weird, everyone else forgot about that already

- you look fine today, if you can’t notice something on your face standing 6 feet from a mirror then nobody else will either

- if something is out of your control, do not let yourself or anyone else expect you to deal with it alone

- social lives can go through cycles sometimes, if you feel like your friends are all ignoring you for no reason they’re probably just busy with other things

- if you can’t stop thinking about someone or something, find something mentally occupying to do like reading a book or watching a movie. it won’t solve any serious problems but you will feel better

- nothing will always be easy, if you’re trying then that should be good enough for anyone. if it’s not then you’re talking with the wrong people

- never underestimate the importance of going to bed, if it’s dark outside and you feel bad just go to bed and deal with your problems the next day
