this guy pulled out his dick in front of like 5 billion feminist protestors holy shit

Some context for the idiots claiming the women are overreacting:
This occurred at a Slut Walk. For those not familiar with it, the Slut Walk is basically a peaceful protest seeking to eliminate the rape apologism so prevalent in society. The basis is that no woman is “asking for it,” with “it” being rape. It’s not a feminist protest; it’s a human rights protest.
Many of the protesters, as you can probably imagine, have dealt with sexual harassment or rape in their own lives. Many of them have structured their daily activities to avoid being raped. The gathering is supposed to be a place for them to feel empowered and able to recover in the company of those who understand what they’ve been through or who will not blame them.
Nobody at a Slut Walk will tell a survivor that it’s her fault. They will not ask what she was wearing to provoke her attacker. Nobody will say she had too much to drink. Nobody will tell the men in the group that they are inherently rapists themselves, and nobody will tell a male survivor that his experience “wasn’t really rape.”
Then, this fellow comes along. He sees this gathering of survivors and their supporters, and to him, it’s a joke. He sees feminazis. He sees girls who are taking “a bit of fun” too seriously. And what does he do? He exposes himself to this group of survivors and supporters - some of whom are, in fact, underage.
He sexually harasses literally hundreds of women in one act. Aside from public indecency, there was cruel intent in his actions. He wanted to make them uncomfortable. He wanted to “put them in their place.” Other photos from this event show him flipping the protesters off and laughing at their anger.
And there are still people defending his actions. There are those who still feel like these women were asking for itand that they deserved to be harassed for trying to claim they weren’t. There are those who feel that women should be taught a lesson this way, and they applaud this man’s actions.
So no, he didn’t pull out his dick in front of feminist protesters. He harassed dozens - if not hundreds - of rape survivors. The reaction to his actions alone outline the purpose of the Slut Walk.
For those of you still doubting whether what he did was wrong (and I do wonder if there’s something wrong with you, if you have doubts), let me give you an analogous situation. Imagine a gathering of black civil rights activists. Imagine Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, and all their colleagues gathered together to demonstrate that being black did not make them lesser people. That being black and living in the South did not mean they were “asking” to be the target of hate crimes.
And at this gathering, a white man decides he should teach them a lesson by pointedly hanging a noose from the nearest tree and laughing at their anger. And other white men, laughing along with him, commend him for taking these activists down a peg.
That’s what happened here. It’s not an “OMG, I can’t believe he did that!” moment. It’s an “OMG, there are people who think this is okay” moment. And the fact is, it’s not. It never will be. And that’s the take home message of this ridiculous rant I’ve written up.

And this is why we still need feminism.

this made me cry holy shit

That was hands down one of the most well-written and beautiful responses I have had the pleasure to read. Thank you

Once you get this you have to say 5 nice things about yourself publicly and then send it to 10 of your favorite followers. Thinking good thoughts about yourself is hard but it will make you feel better so give it a go, for the sake of spreading positivity.

Oh wow! First all thank you so much for sending this. I rarely get messages, so I am super excited !!

Okay here it goes :-

  1. I have good handwriting, even though I am left handed and write with a hooked hand. Everyone notices that about me first.
  2. I love my smile, and the ability to instantly smile and pose when a camera appears.
  3. I have almost mastered the art of thinking before speaking. This really got me into lot of trouble before and I have been working hard since last year. 
  4. I read books fast. I love reading. Period.
  5. I love my eye brows. They are long and have the right thickness, need just a little bit of shaping.

Cheers!

Pro Tip: Women Don’t Owe It To You To Be Empowered

lyannaofmormont:

So this bullshit came across my dash. Now I think categorizing women as most empowered and least empowered is problematic in it of itself (to quote from the article: On the flip side, we’ve identified 10 of their Least Empowered counterparts, women who allow the men in their lives and society as a whole to define their goals and values, and too often wind up playing the role of victim.) but specifically let’s talk about what was said about Sansa (who they put on the least empowered list).

She may be a victim of the sexist mindset of her times, but Sansa hasn’t done much of anything to defy her role as a human leverage in a battle of dueling kingdoms. Heck, she was too much of a scaredy cat to take up Baelish’s offer to escape Joffrey’s sadistic clutches. Where’s badass little sis Arya when you need her?

Remember how the other day I liked Sansa because as a character she rejects a lot of concepts I’m over? Yeah, well, let’s add empowerment to the list of concepts I’m over.

Sansa Stark doesn’t owe it to you to be empowered, whatever your definition of empowered is. Being all ‘ra ra feminism oh yeah’ isn’t more important than her safety and sanity.  Sansa Stark is in serious danger every single day of her life. The threat of violence, rape, and death is part of her daily routine. (As it is in Arya’s, who FYI, is not in a better situation than Sansa.)

Sansa isn’t bad for women, or bad for feminism because she does not have control over her own life. What’s bad for women is shitting on women like Sansa who do what they have to do to live to see another day. 

Sansa is in a place where she has to obey her captors. But to say she doesn’t fight back is ridiculous. Her actions my not seem big to the audience but they are big for her. She fights back by praying for her brother’s victory. She fights back by saving Dontos’ life. She fights back by showing kindness to people she doesn’t has to. She fights back by refusing to break. She fights. She fights so hard. 

And for fucks sake. How could anyone who has watched the show or read the books criticize Sansa for not taking up Petyr’s offer right away. Firstly, yeah, she’s scared, this could have serious consequences for her. Secondly did you miss the part where Petyr Baelish was established as a bad person who does bad things? He’s one of the least trustworthy people in all the seven kingdoms jfc.

Anway, there’s my rant.

Women don’t owe it to you to be empowered. Sansa’s safety should come first and if you don’t understand that, then well, Sansa Stark is more of a feminist than you’ll ever be.

❝That’s not how you play the game. You don’t just blurt out the right answer.❞
-Sansa Stark in a nutshell, ladies and gentlemen. This is how she’s survived so long in King’s Landing. This is why she’s going to become a major player in the game. This is how she’ll outlive most of the other characters in King’s Landing. Sansa is not stupid. She is not “useless” or any other insult you can throw at her. She has learned quickly what it takes to survive in King’s Landing, even when the result of that lesson was her father’s head on a spike. She’s learned that she needs to lie to survive. She needs to spin stories and hide the truth and pretend you’re far more innocent and naive than you truly are. Sansa has some serious power brewing, and has since she swore that Robb would give her Joffrey’s head. She is not a force to be ignored, and anyone who thinks she’s weak or useless needs to sit down and reassess their view of this girl who’s been robbed of the life she used to know, who has come out of the other side with winter in her bones waiting to swallow the Lannisters whole.
