How Fox News covered women’s issues this morning. 

This is real okay this is a real thing that happened on a real news network that millions of men and women watch

lol, how many f*cking people actually watched the entire video 
its not “fox news’s” opinion, they interviewed a lady about her opinions, and not to mention, they covered how men should treat their wives as well. It’s about RESPECTING EACH OTHER, DONT REBLOG BECAUSE YOU SEE A SINGLE SCREENCAP THAT FITS YOUR AGENDA.

Oh by the way, “Executive Presence” is a book on being a strong leader figure in a professional workplace for BOTH MEN AND WOMEN. Sylvia Ann Hewlett’s book is essential reading for anyone striving to minimize the gap between how others perceive you and how you want to be seen. Executive Presence will transforms careers and unleash a current of previously untapped potential on the world.” (Joanna Coles, Editor-in-Chief, Cosmopolitan)” That screencap is NOT fox news telling you how to be a woman for christs sake. It’s a snippet from a book on how you could be perceived better in a professional work environment. This WAS NOT ADVICE DIRECTED TO WIVES BY THAT TOP LADY. Jesus christ.

I can’t even be bothered arguing this because I looked at your blog and there’s no way you’re going to listen to what I have to say. I just wanted some of you guys to see some of the ignorant crap I have to read in my notifications.

westerners are obsessed with the idea of happiness as if it’s a constant state of being. happiness comes in moments. you dont “achieve” happiness. you experience it along with every other emotion on the spectrum. if you spend your life chasing this constructed idea of happiness you will never even be remotely content. work on being whole and feeling everything while increasing the happy moments. stop trying to be a “happy person.” just be a person.

Nicki Minaj is not a woman who easily slides into the roles assigned to women in her industry or elsewhere. She’s not polished, she’s not concerned with her reputation, and she’s certainly not fighting for equality among mainstream second-wave feminists. She’s something else, and she’s something equally worth giving credence to: a boundary-breaker, a nasty bitch, a self-proclaimed queen, a self-determined and self-made artist. She’s one of the boys, and she does it with the intent to subvert what it means. She sings about sexy women, about fucking around with different men. She raps about racing ahead in the game, imagines up her own strings of accolades, and rolls with a rap family notorious for dirty rhymes, foul mouths, and disregard for authority and hegemony.

While Beyoncé has expanded feminist discourse by reveling in her role as a mother and wife while also fighting for women’s rights, Minaj has been showing her teeth in her climb to the top of a male-dominated genre. Both, in the process, have expanded our society’s idea of what an empowered women looks like — but Minaj’s feminist credentials still frequently come under fire. To me, it seems like a clear-cut case of respectability politics and mainstreaming of the feminist movement: while feminist writers raved over Beyoncé’s latest album and the undertones of sexuality and empowerment that came with it, many have questioned Minaj’s decisions over the years to subvert beauty norms using her own body, graphically talk dirty in her work, and occasionally declare herself dominant in discourse about other women. (All of these areas of concern, however, didn’t seem to come into play when Queen Bey did the same.)

"The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people’s expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn’t care if you are a white person who likes black people; it’s still going to find a way to infect how you deal with people who don’t look like you. Yes, racism looks like hate, but hate is just one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. And so on. So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socioeconomic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything."

this is a super important explanation to think about whenever you feel like telling someone that something isn’t racist because you don’t hate x person.

May I have your attention please


  1. Holding down a job is not a measure of value.
  2. Attending school is not a measure of value.
  3. Whether or not you can “contribute” to society is not a measure of whether or not your life is valuable and worth preserving.

These are standards held up by a society which values money and production over everything else. If you think life has any less value or worth because of an inability to do any of the above you’re fucking wrong.

That’s all.
