Plus people would support JLaw if she went around kicking toddlers or robbed someone, so no doubt life Demi Lovato’s punching incident, she’ll still be loved and even portrayed as a hurt victim here (of course getting hacked would be awful but you get what I mean).
Let’s be real here. Celebrities have nothing to fear about a nude leak. They’ll still make millions and be employable. The average person, however, has everything at stake.
I strongly agree with you both- and it’s sad that it’s usually women shaming these characters. However, being a bad@ss isn’t necessary and frankly I dislike that most people only respect female characters when they consider them that, which means basically using weapons, being rude and sassy, doing cool, impressive stuff, etc. And for OP: women don’t need to be the generic “strong independent capable” Mary Sue type, which Rose (regular, uneducated, sweet Rose) isn’t, thankfully. She is flawed and well rounded.
Why is it that devotion is seen as a weakness in female characters and a strength in male characters?
Look at the example of Rory Williams versus River Song or Rose Tyler. Everyone loves Rory’s love and devotion towards Amy, and it’s seen as very romantic. He would tear apart the universe for…
While I personally find River a weak character overall, I wholeheartedly agree with this. There’s some sort of strange mentality going around that a woman can’t feel love and be badass at the same time.
If you’d believe it, I recently read an essay that said Buffy Summers was weak because she dared to break down crying when Angel left her, or she wanted to have a relationship with a man. God forbid she have something in her life other than her friends and killing vampires/saving the world.
230 african girls kidnapped by muslims:
All over the news, #Bringbackourgirls tweets by feminists and even the first lady.
1,400 white girls raped, tortured and sold into prostitution by muslims:
Barely makes it out of British press….
They’re mentioning race at all because that BBOG nonsense was all about how racist whites are for not hauling butt over there to save them and generally just the media and celebrities using this as yet another way to race-bait and get publicity. They’re just pointing out the hypocrisy here. I doubt anyone making this point really care what the races are personally.
Please like or reblog this is you have or know somebody with Trichotillomania. I just need to know that I’m not the only freaking person suffering this disease and that maybe there’s at least one person I can talk to about it.
I assume that’s what it is. I’ve never done too much damage though, not enough to be noticed on me. But I’ve never seen a therapist for anything so I don’t know if I should say I have it without being actually diagnosed.
But if you want someone to talk to about it, I and plenty of others would be happy to listen, even if we can’t always offer the best advice.
just know I’m not really. I don’t always think how my posts will sound, and I’m very honest about how I feel about things, so I know I can sound that way. I feel like I annoy some of my favorite followers when I’m too brutally honest when I don’t intend to do that.
OK, carry on.
A few weeks ago my japanese class did a gift exchange with our penpal class in japan and their box of stuff came in today. All of the gifts had really cute messages on yellow notes. This one was my favorite..
LETS BECOME DIABETES
It seems feminism is now about “reclaiming women’s sexuality.” I didn’t realize it had been stolen, didn’t realize that before Beyoncé that MTV, and society as a whole, forced women to wear burqas and not speak unless spoken to, but they’re taking “feminism” back. It appears to now mean, as I’ve read several thousand times on Twitter, the ability to do whatever they want with their bodies, whenever they want, with whomever they want.
Strippers and porn stars, who used to be attacked by feminists, are now heroes. While no doubt shocking to women who considered themselves feminists at the time, it’s not really that surprising in a culture that elevates to celebrity status people whose only talent or claim to fame is a sex tape posted to the Internet.
Sadly, sex anytime with anyone is what these girls were talking about as “empowering.” Never mentioned by any of the discussants was the word “responsibility.” That’s for suckers and society, I guess.
It’s as if the concept of feminism has been turned over to 15-year-old boys – no-consequence sex with little to no effort made in its pursuit.
