My thoughts exactly on the Redskins Daily Show segment as well as just Native Mascotry issues in general.
Taylor Swift + Olivia Benson
Swift leads the way upstairs to her bedroom. Asleep on her massive four-poster bed is a tiny white ball of fur. “Olivia!” Swift says, scooping her up. It’s her two-month old kitten, named after Olivia Benson, from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. “Hear how loud she’s purring? She’s a stage-five clinger, for sure.” Downstairs somewhere is her other cat, Meredith, named after Meredith Grey from Grey’s Anatomy. “Strong, complex, independent women,” Swift says. “That’s the theme.” – Rolling Stone (x)
But Sam Pepper is genuinely sorry, you guys!
This should be posted in school hallways.
Some people do say all men. But in my experience, when people keep it general and just say “Men” is when people say “not all men!!” which I believe is what the post is referring to. Misandry is absolutely not okay, but it’s about as viable as reverse racism. Women don’t really have the power to oppress men the way the opposite can be true just like a POC doesn’t have the power to oppress white people. I’m not saying I approve, of course. Just putting things into perspective. It’s all about dismantling the power structure to make EVERYONE equal, not to give opportunity to the oppressed to gain power over their oppressors.
Feminism is about equality for all, and anyone who preaches anything else is not really a feminist. Anyone who degrades men is not with this cause. And in the same regard, anyone who says “not all men!!!” is just detracting from the important dialogue. Just like Emma Watson said, the Patriarchy has us all suffering. Men aren’t allowed to be sensitive because it’s considered feminine. Fathers’ roles in families aren’t as valued as mothers. It’s all about everyone doing whatever they want on the Male-Female spectrum without being judged or persecuted.
If anyone says anything otherwise, try to softly guide them to the facts. I hope that helps.

We throw so much information at the jury that they walk into the deliberation room with one overwhelming feeling… doubt.
have we ever actually eliminated unemployment at any point in the history of capitalism? no? weird, it’s almost like poverty and unemployment exist to force workers to work for lower and lower wages and to tolerate shitty working conditions lest they end up unemployed and evicted
