Ahaha yes, I

  • unexpectedly got a new job (which has the most tedious online training I’ve ever seen, and for minimum wage it all better be worth it)
  • spent six weeks cramming Charles Williams’ Dream of Olwen into my head for a piano recital (I’m sure my neighbours reluctantly know it by heart at this point)
  • and now I’m gearing up for a piano exam that’s two months away.

Somehow I thought I would have nothing to do for the summer, but I’m an idiot who takes on too much and never learns from past mistakes.  I want to do everything and nothing, anon.

Tweets concerning UCSB shooting, misogyny, and masculinity by Imran Siddiquee, Director of Communications for The Representation Project, the organization behind Miss Represenation and the soon-to-be-released documentary The Mask You Live In

Every single fucking thing he said. Every single word.

When I was a freshman, my sister was in eighth grade. There was a boy in two of her periods who would ask her out every single day. (Third and seventh period, if I remember correctly.) All day during third and seventh she would repeatedly tell him no. She didn’t beat around the bush, she didn’t lie and say she was taken—she just said no.

One day, in third period, after being rejected several times, he said; “I have a gun in my locker. If you don’t say yes, I am going to shoot you in seventh.”

can someone start a feminism school that I can send my kids to in twenty years? Because I don’t trust this fucking system where kids learn/don’t-learn-at-all about sexuality from videos made in the late 80’s and where ‘boys will be boys’ is okay, and where PE is mandatory…

can someone start a feminism school that I can send my kids to in twenty years?  Because I don’t trust this fucking system where kids learn/don’t-learn-at-all about sexuality from videos made in the late 80’s and where ‘boys will be boys’ is okay, and where PE is mandatory torture.  I would pay top dollar for my kids to learn from an institution that makes “don’t be an asshole” their motto.

Always remember that women who call themselves feminists will be accused so many times of being man-haters, but when a man kills women just for being women, he is called mentally unwell, and a madman rather than a woman-hater or misogynist.

if you can stomach it watch the video of Eliot Rodger explaining why he shot and killed seven people, watch it and tell me that isn’t extremely influenced by the “nice guy/friend zone” ideology, watch it and tell me again about how harmless that ideology is.

Elliot Rodger, Gunman in California Mass Shooting, was influenced by the “Men’s Rights Movement”
May 24 2014
Trigger Warning: Violence against Women
Last Night in Santa Barbara California, a Gunman in a BMW opened fire on students near the UC Santa Barbara campus in Isla Vista. Seven are dead including the gunman, with a further seven injured.
The Gunman’s Name is Elliot Rodger. Last night, he posted a chilling manifesto to youtube. Announcing that he is a 22 year old Virgin who has never been kissed he says:

"It’s not fair. You girls have never been attracted to me. I don’t know why you girls have never been attracted to me, but I will punish you all for it. It’s an injustice, a crime, because I don’t know what you don’t see in me. I’m the perfect guy, and yet you throw yourselves at all these obnoxious men, instead of me, the supreme gentleman."
"I will punish all of you for it," he says again, and then he laughs.
"On the day of retribution I will enter the hottest sorority house of UCSB, and I will slaughter every single spoiled stuck up blonde slut I see inside there. All those girls that I’ve desired so much, they would have all rejected me and looked down upon me as an inferior man if I ever made a sexual advance towards them. While they throw themselves at these obnoxious brutes. I’ll take great pleasure in slaughtering all of you. You will finally see that I am in truth the superior one. The true Alpha Male.”


The true Alpha Male. What those who call themselves the Mens Rights Movement aspire to be.

The Men’s Rights Movement as they call themselves is a nebulous group of pickup artists and misogynists who’ve found each other on line, and are attempting to create a movement based around their hatred, disdain, and fear of women.
We know for a fact that Rodgers was influenced by this movement, as he is subscribed to multiple “pick up artist” or “mens rights” channels on YouTube. (For those here that don’t use YouTube, when a user subscribes to a channel, they receive notifications when that channel posts a new video.)
They include:
"The Player Supreme Show" which rails against the feminization of men and talks about how to pick up women.
“RSDfreetour" which is a series of self-help seminars run by RSD Nation, a “pick up artist” site.
There’s also a user called McHenry Cruiser who in addition to being a pickup artist is a comedian who has some kind of beef with Louis CK, and another called “Squatting Cassanova,” who seems to be your average PUA.
I’m still digging through some of the folks he’s subscribed to.
He is what the Men’s Rights movement calls an “Incel” which is short for involuntary celibacy. It’s a hot topic in various parts of the manosphere.
Rather than seeking mental help for some obvious issues, he sought out the Men’s Rights Movement. He watched their propaganda. He internalized their hatred of women. (There’s no shortage of anti-woman rhetoric and nonsense. For some of the worst of it, check out The Red Pill’s “Pussy Pass" forum, where they take isolated incidents, remove them from any rational context, and blow them way out of proportion.)
He listened to these guys talk about being hard, and tough, and true alpha men. He did what they told them, and began lifting weights. We know he had an account on body building forum which was recently deleted by their moderation team.
So this kid who needed some serious mental help sought out the destructive, BS views coming from the men’s rights movement. He felt entitled to sex with women. He blamed women for not providing him with sex. He exposed himself to hateful rhetoric about women.
And then he acted on that hatred, and targeted college girls for a drive-by shooting, killed six, wounded seven, and then shot himself.
I don’t think we should be at all surprised that when hateful rhetoric is trained on any group,  lone wolves like this guy get triggered.


"You girls have never been attracted to me. I don’t know why you girls have never been attracted to me, but I will punish you all for it."
see that mentality is the reason why

I’m not so sure myself.  I’ll try and see if I can get anything going, but for now I’m a little short of inspiration.  
I miss that show, anon, I miss it hard.
Have some flustered bart in the mean time :)

as soon as i heard about princess tiana appreciation week, i had to draw something for it. tiana is my baby and here’s why! dont delete this cause its tiana appreciation week and im about to appreciate her like crazy:
Tiana works two jobs, getting little to no sleep, so she can fulfill her father’s dream of owning a restaurant. Unlike some of the classic princesses, she actively and tirelessly pursues her dream in order to get what she wants. and she keeps a positive, optimistic attitude too~

one of the best themes of the movie is that anything you dream can come true, but you need to work hard to make it happen.
the movie teaches kids to be determined, optimistic, and hardworking, and prepares them for the truth that your dreams dont just come to you.

tiana doesnt look to her prince to solve her problems. instead, he is inspired by her and learns from her, quickly falling in love with her and deciding that instead of marrying for money, he will help her achieve her dream of owning a restaurant.

they get married intending to remain frogs for the rest of their life. they love each other that much.
also i really like how in this movie disney didnt end with the wedding and a “happily ever after”. instead it shows them working possibly years after their marriage to raise money for the restaurant, and they’re still happy in the marriage then.
tiana achieved her dream of getting her father’s restaurant as a woman, a black woman, in the 1920’s, and she didnt rely on a man or wait around for a fairy godmother.
tiana earned her happily ever after.
