It is not okay to disregard a girl's thoughts, opinions, or art just because...

... she slept with someone.
... she slept with a lot of someones.
... she slept with someone you want to sleep with and IT'S NOT FAIR.
... she wears "slutty" clothes (what does that word even mean)?
... she likes boys.
... she likes girls.
... she likes boys and girls.
... she looks "girlish."
... she looks "boyish."
... she doesn't look the way you want her to look.
... she doesn't say what you want her to say.
... she's cis.
... she's trans.
... she's not the same race as you.
... she has tattoos.
... she has a handbag and a tiny dog.
... she's thin.
... she's fat.
... she knows someone famous.
... she might have fucked someone famous.
... she has a blog in which she occasionally mentions someone famous.
... she has or has had an eating disorder.
... she's an immigrant.
... she works in an industry you personally consider degrading (the fashion industry, the porn industry, the sex industry, whatever).
... she's a virgin.
... she's not a virgin.
... she's religious.
... she's not religious.
... she had an abortion.
... she has kids.
... she's young.
... she's old.
... she did something at some point in her life that you wouldn't have done, or would have done differently, or would have been smarter about, et cetera ad infinitum.

Can we as a species move the fuck on from this bullshit notion that men are people and women are types? That only the "right" kind of girl (and what's "right" for a girl changes all the time anyway) deserves our time and attention and respect, and all other kinds are disposable? That a girl is only as good as her stereotype, or her reputation, or the length of her skirt, or the colour of her skin, or what her job is, or what she looks like, or how much boys like her, or how closed she keeps her mouth, or how closed she keeps her legs?

Can we fucking evolve, please?

Dude, I don't wanna sound like a queer or nothin', but I heart you too.

(Also, thank you for posting that link re: fandom and white privilege. I've been going through it for the last hour or two and there are some really fascinating posts in there.)

No prob, Bob. The best that I can say on this issue is that the ass I show now is not the ass that I would have shown five years ago, so at least I can link to the people who do know what they're talking about.

I wonder how you'd say that in Latin.

Oh, and we need a coat of arms. Possibly one with dolphins on it because what animal is happier than a dolphin?

UGH, SERIOUSLY. Society is so fucked up when it comes to women. And the fact that other women seem to be the worst about it? Kills me. Why do we do this to ourselves?

I don't get that either, man! I mean, I don't understand why anyone sticks to these bullshit prescriptivist gender roles, but it makes no sense to me that women actively enforce them. Shooting yourself in the foot, much? It's like when women say that they hate hanging out with their own gender because women are bitchy or catty or overdramatic- I always wonder if people who say that realize they just insulted themselves or if they consider themselves somehow exempt from the rest of those Bitchy Catty Evil Wimminfolk or what. Ugh, I don't understand it and it makes me mad. :/

(Oh, and fun fact: this post was at least partially inspired by someone's Very Important Opinion re: who wears what to gigs and what that says about them as a fan.)

GODDAMNIT HUMANITY, STOP NEEDLESSLY SUCKING, GET OUT OF YOUR MOM'S BASEMENT, AND DO SOMETHING WITH YOURSELF. JESUS FUCK.

You'd think this sort of thing wouldn't need to be said, but apparently so *sigh*

YOUR INTELLIGENCE IS SHOWING AND IT IS SEXY

But for real, I just want to slap some sense into all the obnoxious fuckheads. Being a fan of, you know, women in general means dealing with this ALL THE TIME.

Y THANK YOU :D

I think the first time I remember dealing with this was when I was into the Spice Girls (which is kind of hilarious but whatever). I remember people- my mother included- telling me I shouldn't like this one because she looks slutty, or that one because she's black, or this one because she doesn't "act like a girl," and I knew it was bogus. And I was nine. Eleven years later they STILL DON'T GET IT AND I WANT TO SMACK THEM.

amen

Also, it makes me SO ANGRY that this even needs to be said. WHY IS IT NOT JUST A GIVEN!!??? ARGH.

I know! People keep on being faily even after I TELL THEM NOT TO. I feel this is unacceptable.

I WAS SURPRISED LET ME TELL YOU. I thought the Douchebag Purge of '05 had settled this once and for all.

Nothing in particular, really. Just people being fuckwits.
