“I would like to get rid of the homophobes, sexists, and racists in our audience. I know they're out there and it really bothers me.” ― Kurt Cobain


Kurt Cobain- The Feminist

by Kat Broderick

link

The late Kurt Cobain was surprisingly, an avid member of the feminist community. Here are some of his link to activism and his ties to the feminist agenda.

If generation X had a king it would be Kurt Cobain. His devil may care attitude arguably defined a generation of people. His haunting melodies and desperate screams spoke to youth disenchanted with societies’ expectations. He cared about a...

Alice in Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is dreaming and there is no way for me as a reader to tell what physical abilities she may have while awake; could Alice have a physical disability? As a reader with Cerebral Palsy, I think yes, in this paper I will interpret Alice as disabled.

There are some passages that I find interesting as they seem to be confirming my theory. The way the Caucus Race Lewis Carroll described The Caucus Race is "All the party were placed along the course here and there. There was no 'One, two, three, and away' but they began running when they liked...

Nicole Kidman: We Must Support Women
link

Nicole Kidman has been “brought to her knees” oleh tales of abuse from some women.

The actress is a UN Goodwill Ambassador who has done a lot of work with females. She is determined to do all she can to help victims of abuse.

“I’ve been to Haiti and Kosovo and to shelters all over the world. The things I’ve seen and the stories I’ve heard just bring me to my knees,” she told the February edition of UK magazine InStyle. “We are working to pass new laws and to make it OK for women to step meneruskan, ke depan and speak about abuses, knowing they will have...

I read a lot of stuff online talking about the “tone argument” and how it’s used to silence feminists. The gist of it is that a feminist is angry about something and delivers a criticism of it, and the opposition points to the way the feminist is angry as a means of shutting them down without ever acknowledging the criticism as valid atau that the person has a right to be angry. This is a problem, and I have seen it occur in threads, so the anti-tone-argument sentiment has a respectable basis. However, I believe the sentiment is often misused so that it ends up causing the same sort of...

Farida broke all barriers

July 11, 2012


How miserably sad and depressing. Farida Afridi, an activist for tribal women in Pakistan, was murdered today. (You know how. anda don’t even need to look. Leaving halaman awal for work. Guys on motorcycles. Guns. Died on the way to the hospital.)

Along with her sister Noor Zia, Farida was committed to social change and economic emancipation for women from the platform of a welfare organisation called the Society for Appraisal and Women Empowerment in Rural Areas (SAWERA). Both women were among the founding members of the NGO and had a Masters...

"I’ve been having an argument for days with this guy on imdb about promiscuous people not asking for rape (on the cape fear page) and he’s like berkata some pretty ridiculous sh*t…here are some examples:

“Looks like anda dig into a lot of feminist website to empower yourself.”

“Hence I don’t agree with the whole martial rape. The newest law in Afghanistan that obliges women to give their husbands sex at least 4 times a week. I would say that is a progressive law.”

“Understand this, rape will always exist in human society. It is a pahit buah-buahan of evolution....

Have anda ever been offended oleh those stereotypes? Well, I get offended pretty easily oleh the gender stereotypes. Whenever I get offended I would complain and stop watching atau playing the game altogether. Nearly all film and tv shows and even the video games are made oleh sexist men who think that women are not as capable as women! Let's look at one example, the movie Gremlins. It may be funny, but can be sexist. I hate that movie. It portrays women as weak, cowardly, helpless, and over FUCKING dependent! And males as too overprotective and muscly and too fucking irresistable! Gosh, I hate when...

Dear Feminists, Will anda Also Be Marching In N***erwalk? Because I Won't.
by Keli Goff

(Published in The Huffington Post)

The only thing lebih irritating than people doing absolutely nothing to make the world a better place are those actively trying to make it worse, but coming in a strong third? Those whose well-meaning efforts to make the world better are so misguided that they make things worse oleh default.

I was reminded of this when I happened upon the SlutWalk protests taking place in New York this past weekend... with my mother. (If you're looking for something super memorable to do with...

There’s a meme I’ve seen online where feminists say that the word “females” shouldn’t be used because of its dehumanizing connotations. The idea is that “female” relates to the sex of a biological organism, and when one is using that kind of terminology they tend to be discussing nonhuman binatang in a scientific fashion. So, when men talk about “females” when they mean “women”, it comes off as dehumanizing. While I agree to an extent, as I believe some men do use this to purposefully distance themselves from women, I also think this decree that female humans should be...

Hello. It's my first time menulis an article. Well, have anda ever been bullied atau harassed oleh men online? Have they ever criticized anda for stating your opinion on the internet, whether it be on social media like Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, atau Youtube? And how does that make anda feel?

It happened to me many times. That aside, let's talk a little bit about it. I feel that it originated from the non-technological world, where assertive men were considered "driven," "motivated," etc. while assertive women were called "b*tchy," "rude," atau even worse--- "bratty" atau "immature," when in reality,...

Chauvinism and Masculinism, two of the biggest anti-feminism "movements" alive and rampant in this hari and age. Since the beginning of these movements, the Feminist image has been violated to the point that even hearing the word "Feminist" brings up some ugly descriptions in the human psyche: fat, unattractive, masculine women who can't find a decent husband that want to create misery for all like they feel oleh lying about what women really want (like bayi and husbands) and emasculating men, atau a big system of corporate tools brainwashed oleh powerful liberals to decimate the human race,

from tumblr; the OP deleted their blog

“THIS PICTURE WILL NOT CHANGE THE WORLD, BUT I STILL NEED FEMINISM AND I’M GOING TO REALLY, REALLY TELL anda WHY”:

-Because I got called a whore for wearing a short plaid rok when I was 10

-and because when Nujood Ali from Yemen was 10 she got divorced

-Because black girls’ names became my classmates’ favorit “joke” when I was 11

-and because when an 11-year-old girl in Texas was raped oleh 18 men the New York Times wrote of how the girl “dressed older than her age”

-Because I started counting calories when I was 14

Look at all of the stereotypes that existed ever since the beginning of time! They're so toxic and so degrading!

Stereotype 1: Every woman needs a man (which is an issue in many high schools, even colleges and such).

Stereotype 2: All women need rescuing and constant protection.

Stereotype 3: A woman who stands up for herself is considered b*tchy, bossy, and unladylike.

Stereotype 4: A woman is supposed to be submissive and f*cking cowardly! (which is so common)

Stereotype 5: All women are less intellegent, lebih foolish, and can't learn anything.

Stereotype 6: Women are the weakest of the weak....

It stared with a simple premise; a woman playing Peter Pan; Girls cinta that! Something different happened, during "Ugg-A-Wugg" I couldn't understand them, which was both shocking and intriguing. Fortunately as a person with Cerebral Palsy I knew just what to do. I Promised to Help the Cast if they needed it. 12 years later "Peter Pan Live!" Made changes to "Ugg-A-Wugg" and it caused me to feel A LOT of guilt, and self-hated, But NBC had upset the Native Americans who expressed themselves on #NotYourTigerLily and I stated tweeting there to. My tweets got into the puncak, atas Tweets my confidence grew....

1. MYTH: Legalizing prostitution gets rid of its criminal elements - pimps and traffickers.
FACT: Legalizing prostitution benefits pimps and traffickers. It also benefits johns.

2. MYTH: Men need sex therefore prostitution must exist. Prostitution is a natural form of human sexuality
FACT: The sex of prostitution is not “sex” for women in it. Most men who use women in prostitution have other sexual partners.

3. MYTH: Prostitution is sexual liberation
FACT: Prostitution is sexual exploitation.

4. MYTH Women choose to enter prostitution. It’s better to choose to make lots of money as a prostitute...

Now i'm what I would like to call an average guy. I also like to think that I'm open minded and willing to hear any argument as long as that argument is backed up with cold hard facts.
Now as a guy i personally don't have any experience of any of the issues normally expressed oleh the feminist movement so my thoughts and opinions are always formed from detik hand atau third hand experience (reading articles, watching YouTube video etc.)
Now i'm sure some of anda are asking yourself why are anda asking this? Well the answer is as follows.

“Wherever there is a human being, I see God-given rights inherent in that being, whatever may be the sex atau complexion” -- William Lloyd Garrison

"Nothing can be lebih absurd than the practice that prevails in our country of men and women not following the same pursuits with all their strengths and with one mind, for thus, the state instead of being whole is reduced to half."
--Plato

"[A] woman should have every honorable motive to exertion which is enjoyed oleh man, to the full extent of her capacities and endowments. The case is too plain for argument. Nature has diberikan woman the same powers,...

'Feminazi' is the demonization of feminism via comparing the woman's rights movement to Adolf Hitler.

Needless to say, it is the most incompetent and insensitive terminology refering to:

A. The victims who suffered tremendously under Hitler's regime during WW2.
B. Feminism and how misunderstood it's many messages are today in modern society.

So even if anda aren't a feminist, atau maybe even not even pro-feminist (which i can assure anda are completely different things), anda most definately shouldn't tolerate this fad. Here are four, quick, clear reasons simply to start anda off. I could go on for...
