feminist speeches

i’ve heard in the longest time, and the result? the result from these men who claim that they would be all for feminism if it weren’t for all “the man hating”?

do not be fooled for one fucking second

you can be as kind, calm, attractive and male inclusive as they demand for our voices to matter and the result is the same.

these people do not hate feminism because it “hates men”, these people have historically and to this day hated feminism because it’s purpose will result in the taking away of their power.

I know I just said we shouldn’t respond to trolls…but I spent some time in the comments of THE VIDEO IN QUESTION and there are a number of ladies just being totally badass and awesome, so I wanted to share.

HOLY. FUCKING. SHIT.

Zoe “Social Justice Rogue” Quinn has been lurking in 4Chan’s raiding IRC channels the last couple of weeks, gathering chat logs.

Turns out, the ENTIRETY of #GamerGate was completely manufactured by 4channers, and they played EVERYONE that joined in on the #GamerGate tag and the #NotMyShield tag. Everyone. None of it was true.

Favorite tweet from this? 

I make video games, did y’all really think I didn’t know how the internet works?

well this is way fucking scarier than anything else, and damn there’s enough evidence to convince me it’s true and that i was wrong in not believing zoe quinn. if she didn’t abuse anyone she hasn’t done anything wrong - video game journalism is still, however, bullshit. 

the only thing i wanna see is that the other person had video evidence of what was supposedly their former chat logs, any kind of actual video stuff in terms of evidence would even the playing field. either way this is horrifying and really fucking scary

But wait! There is a video of it!!

welp i’m sold, 4chan fooled me and is scary as hell.

Yep. It’s scary as hell, and I’ve been seeing it unfold for the past month and a half, and it’s enough to scare women out of game development, and they’ve also been driving out freelance journalists (also women) as well.

Oh, and here’s another video!

And Zoe’s going to be uploading a vid that one of her friends took while her tumblr was attacked.

You go, girl.

"Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”

Women have always fought. We have always been there, ‘contributing to history’. Our own, modern sexism contributes to the erasure of it.

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.

"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."

"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

(taken from this post on the experiments of Harry Harlow)

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

Fans are taking ‘Where’s Gamora?’ into their own hands

As many frustrated fans have pointed out online, much of the official Guardians of the Galaxy merchandise leaves out Gamora, one of the movie’s five titular Guardians, played by Zoe Saldana. Though Gamora has an equal amount of screen time as her male colleagues, and Saldana is second-billed after Chris Pratt, Gamora is mysteriously absent in some egregious ways.

Unfortunately, this is nothing new

wow

Depressing shit man :/

So insulting that they’re saying little boys can’t handle having a kick ass assassin on their shirt because she’s a girl >:

A feminist group based in Guangzhou, China staged an online protest against the sexual exploitation of women in the workplace, revealing a photograph with a message boldly written in red on a whiteboard behind them: “My vagina does not come free with my labor.” More words were written on the women’s thighs, reiterating: “Not freebies.” 

The campaign was in response to a recent fatal rape case involving a 20-year-old woman at a state-owned company who was asked by her boss to a dinner. She was sexually assaulted by her boss’s friend and died as a result of her injuries.“Don’t ask your staff to provide part-time escort services. Women should only be asked to provide knowledge or technical skills in the workplace, but not other things,” says Ye Haiyan, an advocate of women’s and children’s rights.
