Im Cortney. I'm a senior in high school, I like to read, and when I find a fandom i love, I become emotionally involved, such as: Doctor Who, The Avengers ( or any Marvel movie), Harry Potter, Sherlock, and Supernatural just to name a few.
The Physicians Committee is calling out Arby’s for misleading its 263,000 Twitter followers. The company’s recent #meatcraft tweets claimed that “Protein is better in meat form.” The truth is that animal protein is linked to several diseases, while plant protein is not. To protect public health, the Physicians Committee has filed a legal petition asking the Federal Trade Commission to halt this deceptive messaging.
I FUCKING HATE Arby’s.

I honestly agree with most of this.
There are no words. Only sounds. Of me vomiting profusely that this is even a thing.
Women against feminism, women AGAINST RIGHTS FOR WOMEN?!?!
I hate people sometimes… Xx
Nowhere did I say I was against rights for women? Western feminism has no reason to exist. We have equality. All western feminism does is perpetuate the fact that women are victims and I’m not about that. It’s crass.
If you don’t consider yourself a feminist, then you’re against women’s rights, or you simply don’t understand what it is you’re talking about.
I’m not having this argument, it’s pointless, & don’t come on tumblr to argue, but please educate yourself properly, because if you actually knew your shit you wouldn’t be saying western feminism doesn’t need to exist, it does.
Until congress stops debating abortion laws & laws about birth control, & women get to make up their own minds a about their bodies, not middle aged male politicians, we need feminism.
Until the excuse ‘boys will be boys’ vanishes, & ‘what was she wearing?’ Stops being asked when discussing rape, we need feminism.
Until the glass ceiling is broken, (& if you’d really looked into it, you’d realise that the glass ceiling & the wage gap are very real issues,) we need feminism.
Feminism is the idea that a woman is equal to a man, has control over her own body & has the same opportunities as a person of the opposite sex.
& I just don’t see that in our society.
If you do, well then where can I buy a pair of your Rose-tinted glasses? Ignorance is bliss after all, & I wish that I was wrong.
But I’m not.
I’ve seen it, experienced it & I know from first hand experience that we still need feminism.
"There is no rape culture" … YES, THERE IS. It’s that thing where you BLAME THE VICTIM for BEING RAPED, which is so dumb. I don’t want to go on too much of rant, but Christ, some people are so IGNORANT. I agree with everything the previous person has said, so these women who don’t ‘need’ feminism, go and educate yourselves. Even if you feel you PERSONALLY don’t need feminism, many others do, so shut up. Okay, rant over.
I know what I believe, and I’m not a feminist, but I do in fact believe in equal rights for everyone (everyone includes women by the way). I’m not in any way ignorant or blind to the issues that exist in the western world. However I do understand that western feminism isn’t a movement for equality and is a burden to all trying to achieve equality.
Congress debates birth control and abortion laws because it’s a controversial issue involving the health and safety of women, because there are people (news flash, people includes women) that believe these things aren’t good. While yes, personal autonomy is important to to feel safe, medical procedures and medications need to be regulated to ensure safety.
Yes the saying boys will be boys is wrong, and that deals with the fact that the way each gender views the opposite, respect and moral wise, isn’t equal. But feminism isn’t going to give us equality.
The “what was she wearing” thing is partially valid. There are always going to be shitty people out there, and if dressing immodestly makes a difference then yes it’s an important question. No one deserves to be raped, as no one deserves to be murdered. But it happens, and if you’re not aware or understanding of that, that sucks.
Yes, the glass ceiling exists. But it’s not only a women’s issue. It’s a minorities issue. It’s not a feminist issue. It’s a civil rights issue. And the wage gap doesn’t account for differences in occupation, skill, experience, or time worked. Women aren’t special snowflakes. We aren’t more oppressed than anyone else.
So while no, I don’t see total equality in our society, I don’t see women being oppressed more than anyone else. [western] Feminism isn’t about equality. It’s about privilege for women.
Also, don’t tell me to shut up for expressing my opinion. I’m not telling you to shut up for expressing yours. <3
