A 14 year-old boy was recently raped at knife-point by a 20 year-old woman. When the story broke, it was primarily men who claimed he should have enjoyed it. It was feminists who validated his pain and spoke in support of him.
This is why we need feminism."
"but men get raped too-"
AND LOOK HOW YOU HANDLED THAT
notice how all the people we’re hypothetically trying to reach are family members because we don’t actually have friends to call
Reblogging because of the accuracy of that comment ^
"Here’s a general rule. When an insult is directed at a woman, consider how it would have sounded directed at a man. If the result is ridiculous, then it’s probably sexist."
this has been my rule of thumb for years
I find it really interesting that the historical men like Vincent Van Gogh, Winston Churchill and Richard Nixon portrayed in Moffat Who are always three dimensional and treated respectfully, while the historical women like Elizabeth the First and Nefertiti, are always love sick dolls drooling over the Doctor.
It almost seems like Moffat cannot take women seriously, even if they ruled nations.
