The biggest problem I have with feminism is it’s utter lack of self awareness.
Any of my feminist friends on places like facebook or real life for the most part are calm, well mannered and intelligent. They are always up for a conversation and like to see things from both sides before making their argument. They are the types of are honestly for equality and are scared to death of tumblr and radical feminists.
Their one major flaw is that they refuse to acknowledge that those women are feminists but rather just crazy women using the title and group as a soap box. And while that may be true that’s not what the majority of the public see’s. Most of us don’t sit down and have kind and relaxed conversations with a calm and relaxed feminist, we see Big Red. We get bullied by people like Anita Sarkeesian, have communities torn apart by women like Zoe Quinn. The laws that women like this pass and the things they fight for are what’s effecting our lives the most so it’s how we see the group as a whole. No matter how many times a friend will tell me ‘that’s not what feminism is’ I have to tell them everything that YES that is what feminism is today. It’s the loudest voice, the biggest power in the group and voices like Christina Hoff Sommers are drown out and booed off stage.
Those in the middle ground, the one’s who sit on tumblr and just scream ‘not all feminists’ are just as much to blame if not more so for allowing these things to go on on a site they frequent, and rather than go after those dragging the groups name through the mud they attack those calling out bad feminism just has harshly as those rafems do.
And on the flip side the radfems refuse to admit they are doing anything wrong. But we can just toss that up to delusion and utter privileged stupidity so we can’t heavily fault them.
Everyone is in denial in one way or another and until one group takes off the blinders and admits there’s a problem only THEN will we be able to do anything about the crazy, sexist bigots who have overrun society.
I want to follow all blogs that are in the fandom
So we should p bring this back because there are WAY more Shansters than 212. Like, that’s about a third of my followers alone. Get thee to the reblog button, children. We’ve got work to do.
Steve made an army of non-vampaneze allies to circumvent their strict battle codes. He built his army out of people in positions of power and influence, like cops.
Darren copied the idea.
But we’re supposed to be rooting for his side.
I’m still not clear on who won. The hobos or the trained army?
the hobos, unfortunately
Hobos really smell though…so maybe the stench scared them away? oh yeah, they were probably used to bad smells because of making architecture in the sewers. Nevermind
