The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water.
Can’t say I’m surprised this was Marvel’s reply. :|
Yes, Marve, this -is- exploitative. When all that I see when I first look at the cover is Spiderwoman’s backside and how it looks like she’s in a sex position more than crouching on a building (seriously, wtf is that supposed to even be), that’s a problem. I didn’t even realize her face was on it until I got over that first brow-raising moment - which was much later.
Thanks for asking for clarification!
Ok here’s the quote:“"Radical" means root, not extremism. Radical feminism means getting to the root of female oppression. And if freeing women from thousands of years of oppression is extreme to you, you are either an oppressor or have Stockholm Syndrome.”
So, to answer your question: no, this is not calling for a new term to be used for radical feminists, it is saying that in the term “radical feminism,” radical is not meant to mean extreme. It is meant to mean “root” as in square root, another term for radical in math.
There are a lot of misconceptions about radical feminism, so Jitana Sunflower-Rose is saying “look, radical feminism isn’t about extremism. it’s about getting to the root of women’s oppression, aka the gender hierarchy,” which explains the next line of the quote:
"And if freeing women from thousands of years of oppression is extreme to you, you are either an oppressor or have Stockholm Syndrome."
I hope that clears it up for you!
Oh! I thought “Radical Feminist” was something a feminist calls other feminists who they disagree with, for example I would call a trans-exclusionary feminist a TERF. So I didn’t know that “Radical Feminist” was an actual thing that one would call oneself! I’ll go look more into it…
and here we see the difference between what a word means and what a word is used for when women say something you don’t like!
Fudge recipe on a headstone
I feel like I should make this just to be able to say a dead person taught me how to make it. Maybe I’ll do it for Halloween.
I desperately hope that she spent her entire life telling people that they could have her fudge recipe “over my dead body.”
That last comment is absolutely worth reblogging.
Notice something in common in these photos?
It’s not what you think
I gave it away in the third pic
That’s right! None of these cops are wearing badges or name tags! I wonder why… seems like it’d be important to wear those, since it’s even illegal not to in other states…
This is actually illegal in all states. A police officer must be marked as such with name and badge at all times unless their jurisdiction states otherwise (such as an undercover officer), and even when not wearing a badge, the officer must have the badge accessible at all times and must show the badge in order to make an arrest. Name tags are not required as long as a badge is available because the badge has the officer number on it.
This has really been bothering me. The police in Ferguson are breaking the law by concealing their identities. Everyone knows this, it’s been going on for ten days, and it appears that nobody is doing anything about it.
The police are clearly and systematically violating the first amendment rights of the press, and they are getting away with it. This has been happening for days, and nobody appears to be doing anything about it.
A police officer pointed a rifle at a journalist and told him to fuck off *while he was being filmed, so he’s easily identifiable by his superiors*, and that police officer still has a job.
I know that not all cops are bad (or even most cops), but there are clearly bad cops in Ferguson, and they’re acting with complete impunity. I don’t understand why those cops aren’t being taken off the scene, and why a higher (possibly federal) authority isn’t coming in to address these things.
