why do i keep laughing at the thought of female!spiderman…(spidergirl? spiderwoman?) getting caught without her mask on and the dude who catches her just goes on a rant about ‘fake geek girls’ and how ‘that costume isn’t even accurate oh my god’ and ‘comic-con was last week’
and her secret identity is saved because some dudebro in a batman t-shirt thinks he’s hot shit
the problem, as i see it:
contrary to popular belief, feminism is not a movement against men, it is a movement for women.
and contrary to popular belief, men’s rights activism is not a movement for men, it is a movement against women.
Types of people who romanticize small town life:
- People who didn’t grow up in small towns

"Men’s rights activists don’t organize marches; they don’t build shelters or raise funds for abused men; they don’t organize prostate cancer-awareness events or campaign against prison rape. What they actually do, when they’re not simply carping in comments online, is target and harass women—from feminist writers and professors to activists—in an attempt to silence them."

GOD THIS IS SO FUCKING IMPORTANT
repeat after me:
- women owe you nothing
- women’s bodies are their own
- nothing you do will ever make you “deserve” a woman
- you wanting to get your dick sucked will NEVER be more important than a woman’s right to feel safe/comfortable/like an actual human being
- how women select partners is not the problem male entitlement is the problem

"Fetishizing ‘power’ in women characters – having them kicking ass and always being ready with a putdown - isn’t the same as writing them as human beings."

bigbardafree says the first thing I thought of when I saw this quote.
"I think that a huge problem is people who read comics and don’t understand the point of superheroes, which is to be the best version of yourself. You love Captain America? Well, you know what Captain America would never do? Go online anonymously and shit on a girl for having an opinion."
