Happy Easter

If you want to make an apple pie, you must first invent an egg that looks like the universe… or something.

“So the single most vital step on your journey toward enlightenment is this: learn to disidentify from your mind. Every time you create a gap in the stream of mind, the light of your consciousness grows stronger. One day you may catch yourself smiling at the voice in your head, as you would smile at the antics of a child. This means that you no longer take the content of your mind all that seriously, as your sense of self does not depend on it.”

One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. Carl Jung (via cosmofilius)

Ugh, i’m in such a bad mode now. Like why does stuff about feminism always have to show up in everything. It’s on my dash when it doesn’t have to be. I’m literally shaking now, it just makes me so angry when this happen all the time. homophobia has nothing to do about straight women like why does everything have to ead back to us. women are not alway the victims! i really don’t like feminism any more.

Why does feminism show up in everything?

Probably because systematic gender inequality is incredibly pervasive and ubiquitous, and some of us are kinda sick of that. 

you can continue whining, i won’t stop you. there’s no need for feminism, just gender equality in general and feminism won’t fix that. and my post was refering to a post that i had reblogged before that made homophobia an issue about straight women which it isn’t.

Gender equality is a GOAL, not a process. In fact, it is a goal of feminism. 

But no, compare activism to “whining.” Good job. 

Now, I can agree that homophobia and other forms of queerphobia really don’t have anything to do with any straight person. My point, however, is that making a big stand against “Feminism being in everything” is sort of missing the point about why feminism exists and is needed. 

no matter what you think, complaining on the internet is not a form of activism. and i meant that everybody should fight for gender equality, for both genders wich feminism doesn’t.

1. Online activism is valid. It gives people a technological platform from which they can reach thousands and even millions of people. That level of exposure is simply unattainable for many people in “real life” spaces. Activism being more accessible to wider audiences doesn’t decrease it’s validity.

2. There are more than 2 genders. Don’t be binarist.

3. a. Yes feminism does. b. A movement is not measured by how much it helps men. “Helpful to men” is not the yardstick of worth.  

I design clothes because I don’t want women to look all innocent and naïve… I want woman to look stronger… I don’t like women to be taken advantage of… I don’t like men whistling at women in the street. I think they deserve more respect. I like men to keep their distance from women, I like men to be stunned by an entrance. I’ve seen a woman get nearly beaten to death by her husband. I know what misogyny is… I want people to be afraid of the women I dress. Alexander McQueen (via feministgrrl)
