Memory is a record.
People only have substance within the memories of other people. And that’s why there were all kinds of myself. There weren’t a lot of myself per se, I was just inside all sorts of people, that’s all.

“…it’s the critics who will lazily use the recent explosion of “teen girls gone wild” films […] to convince us that the current generation represents some kind of postfeminist dream, or nightmare. Don’t believe them.”

Lewis’s law is an observation she made in 2012 that states “the comments on any article about feminism justify feminism.” Lewis has written frequently about misogynist hate directed at women online.[8]

Can we just repeat that a few more times, 

“The comments on any article about feminism justify feminism.”

“The comments on any article about feminism justify feminism.”

"When women explain to you — in a calm, nuanced, proportionate way — that there are some contexts in which your advances are less likely to be well-received than others, and you respond by sticking your fingers in your ears and screaming about ball-busting, man-hating feminists who are hell-bent on eradicating all flirting and sex and eroding your First Amendment right to proposition any woman at any time and place? When you resist hearing that hitting on a woman who’s alone in an elevator in a strange city at four o’clock in the morning is not likely to be well-received, that it’s likely to be perceived as a potential threat, and that you are likely to be perceived as an insensitive clod at best if you do it? When we explain ten times, a hundred times, a thousand times, that elevators are well-documented as a common place for women to get raped and that it’s therefore not an appropriate place to make sexual advances — and you still reply, “But I don’t understand what the problem is with elevators?”
I have to assume that getting laid is not the point.
I have to assume that the point is something entirely different. I have to assume that you will do anything to resist hearing that women experience male advances in a very different context from the way men experience female advances. I have to assume that you have an active resistance to understanding that women’s experiences are different from men’s: that (among other things) women routinely get our professional/ intellectual/ artistic accomplishments dismissed in favor of a focus on our sexual attractiveness, and that women have to be seriously cautious about physical and sexual violence from men. When you are so vehemently unwilling to see some of the ways that privilege works in your favor, I have to assume that maintaining privilege is the point."

An awesome article about feminism in general, and about feminism’s intersection with other ideological movements (in this case, atheism in specific.)   (via speak-slow)

Demanding Dignity on Kabul’s Streets, Afghan Women March Against Sexual Harassment

Demanding Dignity on Kabul’s Streets, Afghan Women March Against Sexual Harassment

"The demonstration was the first of its kind in Afghanistan. Though small in size, its message was clear and, in Afghanistan’s extremely conservative public space, incendiary: street harassment is an attack on women’s right to coexist in society with men, and it must end."

Una Moore

double standards… gotta love them.

is this meant to be a stab at feminists? because they don’t actually say these things.

A female shouldn’t wear that print? Okay, I can get with this. But that guy’s socks are too light a shade of navy for his slacks, I don’t care if you are a guy, you should not do that, it’s not okay.But seriously, what are you trying to say? You see to be having difficulty in expressing it, even using words and photos. The message is lost in a sea of what.
