if you want to be happy, be.

My name is Jamie, I'm a senior sociology major focusing in family studies.

I mostly blog about my feminism. But there is always pokemon, multiple fandoms, and whatever I feel like.

I am still, and will always be, learning. So if I mess up, please feel free to correct me. I love constructive conversations and I am more than happy to discuss societal issues or just anything :)

#john barrowman is having none of your misogynist bullshit

i love that barrowman’s response also distances him from the contestant
"hahahaha women do laundry right john?  you with me, john?"
"don’t lump me in with you, you fucking martian”

This is what I’m talking about when I keep saying that men have to deny the endorsement. This guy wanted Barrowman’s tacit support or agreement for his sexism, as part of bonding through humour. John went nope.

Bolding mine.

this is what I need from the men in my life

you want us to believe you don’t hate us? I need to hear this come out of your mouths when we are in a group situation and one of the guys thinks he’s being funny

when you shuffle awkwardly and tell me AFTERWARDS that so-and-so was being a dick that has precisely ZERO value to me okay?

Seriously, this is such a huge problem. Men want to seem cool to other men so when you call men on their shit you’re actively saying “that ain’t cool” and it makes them see dumb and then they don’t do it as much. I don’t care too much for guys who are only feminists when around women.

Bold italics mine cuz TRUTH!

I don’t do private apologies after someone has tried to humiliate me in public. If you’re gonna act out in public then don’t be a fuckin’ coward and try to make amends in private so that YOU won’t be embarrassed.

it’s weird how straight boys will find out that a girl is bisexual and then think that girl wants to fuck them with another girl. And if they find out a guy is gay they think that guy wants to fuck them.

No one wants to have sex with you. You are are not cute. At all.

I have this theory that resting bitch face is actually just every girl’s face in its natural state, and it only seems rare and mean b/c most women are conditioned to be in constant state of smiling and using facial expressuons to subtly submit to people around them

Your feelings are valid simply because you feel them.
