There’s an advice column in a magazine I read, and one of the questions is basically “My kid is crying because they’re being teased at school, what should I do?”
And their answer was more or less “Make him build up tougher skin, teasing is part of life and kids are mean.”
Fucking make your kids stop being assholes, make them learn that they can’t just tease someone, and DON’T BLAME THE VICTIM OR SAY THEY’RE BEING TOO SENSITIVE. Teach your children that there are consequences to their actions,
You know what would change in CoD if you played as a female?
You’d hear female grunts instead of male. Maybe the screen would be pink jelly and not red. That’s literally it.
being a misogynist for pointing out the fact that the game is marketed towards men and not to women… what?
Am i suddenly a homophobe for saying that the catholic church worships God and Jesus?
It’s good to be king.
Not every man on the planet is upset that Angelina Jolie is having a double mastectomy. This is in fact, a minority of the Male population.
why do we kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong
Why don’t we just stick all of the murderers into a pit and give them guns and let them duke it out themselves until there’s one person left
There can be only one!
friendly reminder that when oliver wood addressed the gryffindor quidditch team as ‘men’, angelina johnson called him out on his sexist and misogynistic bullshit by reminding him there were women on the team too, and he listened to her without question ✿◕‿◕✿
… How in the world is a leader addressing his team as “Men” misogynistic in any way? It’s not. It’s just how military leaders address their armies, in part because in the old days they were purely made up of men yes, but in this context it is no different then saying “hey guys” to a group of friends composed of members of both sexes. Wood doesn’t hate or dislike women, which is what the term Misogynist means, this is obvious in your own very point in that he listens to Angelina without question, were he truly misogynist he’d slap her across the face and tell her to shut up or some other horrible thing, it is pretty clear he did not do this.
“Alright men, this is the day we’ve been training for!” Is not Misogynistic, it’s professional. Wood was imitating a common military line that modern military men still use in order to show his team that he was serious and prove to them and himself and any onlookers his dedication to being the team’s leader. He wasn’t being sexist, he was showing off. Nothing he said in any way harmed or put-down women, as you said, he even listened to a woman correcting him without question, a very not-misogynist thing to do don’t you think?
Some interesting info: This is very reminiscent of the Baby X experiments, in which it was discovered that people reacted differently to a baby’s behavior depending on whether or not they believed the baby to be male or female. People were asked to watch a video of a baby reacting to a startling image (a Jack-in-the-box popping up), and describe the baby’s emotional state. When people believed the baby to be female, they described the baby as being scared and upset; when they thought the baby was male, they perceived the baby to be angry. This was very telling, as it showed that literally identical behavior could be construed differently based on the perceived gender of the subject.
it’s cool if you’re transgendered/lesbian/gay/queer/asexual/nongender whatever but
What can i say that hasn’t already been said?
So let me tell you about the shittiest parent on the motherfucking planet.
I work at a grocery store and this man comes in with his 11 year old son. He buys a pack a cigarettes and a two cases of beer. The son was holding a two dollar drawing pad and placed it on the belt and I guess the dad didn’t notice it at first but when I was about to scan the pad he asked where’d it have come from and turned towards the kid and asked “Did you put that shit up there?”. He told me to put it back and then told his 11 year old child that he “ain’t paying for that gay ass notebook.”. So I looked at the kid, who was close to tears and saying how he ran out of paper at home and my heart broke. So I gave the pad to him, for free, and told the dad I would take care of it. I gave the kid some tokens for a game outside and said I would look forward to buying some of his drawings and paintings when he’s all famous. He kids face was so priceless and I thought everything was good. But then, about 10 ten minutes after giving the kid his notebook, I walked outside and saw this. The drawing pad all ripped up and tossed on the pavement. I could only imagine what happened in the parking lot, but I know that that poor kid heart is fucking ripped apart, just like this pad.
I’m fucking horrified that there are parents like this, who, just because it’s not masculine or gender specificthey won’t let their children follow their true passions or explore interests that lead to their happiness. Even more so, I’m horrified that parents don’t care about the fine arts anymore because it doesn’t have job security. Since when did it ever matter to a child if their passion makes them money or not? Parenting is about supporting whatever makes your child happy. Have some fucking consideration for your child’s wants not your homophobic and anti-art ideals.
I’m sorry, forgive me if it sounds like i am defending this man, i assure you i am not and he is indeed a horrible monster.
But what does any of this have to do with Masculinity, Gender specificity, or Homophobia? These are completely unrelated to the subject at hand, the man tore up the notebook because he didn’t want his son drawing or “wasting his time” doing art or whatever his motivations may have been, none of this is in any way related to masculinity, gender norms, or homosexuality. “Gay” has recently come about as just a general insult, using it does not make one homophobic as they are in no way referring to homosexuality. I do not believe the term should be used as an insult at all mind you, but you must recognize the difference between using it to refer to something as “bad” or the like and using it to refer to something as actually homosexual.
1. That he does not know either of these two guys as he personally knew and cared about Rose.
2. That he does not understand the situaition that he understood with rose “if i don’t kiss her she’s dead for good”
3. That he is a Heterosexual
5. That kissing a severed head is kind of a lot more disturbing then merely kissing a body that only died mere secconds ago.
All of wich is Okay!
