    i really need people to stop talking about mras only in terms of fedoras/being bronys/how unkempt they are, etc. because there are dudes out here looking like hollister models who need to be held just as accountable for their creepy/misogynistic behavior

    and don’t get me started on how y’all aren’t saying “unkempt” y’all are saying fat slobs who only eat doritos and mtn. dew 

    like

    your fatphobia isn’t progressive and there are dudes out here eating organic free range flax seed compote and saying the same shit that the doritos dudes are okay

    they don’t get a pass just because they’re conventially attractive

    That and sometimes issues with grooming (“neckbeard”), not eating right (“cheetos”), not going out much, or not being “sufficiently” independent (“momma’s basement”) can also be signs or signifiers of disability, too.

    Being sexist is not okay, and I personally think neckbeards (as in literal facial hair on someone’s neck) are ugly. But it’s the sexism that’s the problem, not these other things.

    If these other things are a real trend rather than a stereotype, maybe we should be asking ourselves how toxically sexist enclaves make themselves appealing to disabled men. 

    Because if this is a real thing, then it’s horizontal hostility. It’s “I have it shitty because I can’t make it in the world, but at least I’m not a woman.”

    When people start doing that — propping themselves up using an ism because people are *ist against them — then the question isn’t just “What’s wrong with them?” it’s also “Is there something that encourages them to turn against other oppressed people? How do we nip that in the bud?”

  6. "We never say that all men deserve to feel beautiful. We never say that each man is beautiful in his own way. We don’t have huge campaigns aimed at young boys trying to convince them that they’re attractive, probably because we very rarely correlate a man’s worth with his appearance. The problem is that a woman’s value in this world is still very much attached to her appearance, and telling her that she should or deserves to feel beautiful does more to promote that than negate it. Telling women that they “deserve” to feel pretty plays right in to the idea that prettiness should be important to them. And having books and movies aimed at young women where every female protagonist turns out to be beautiful (whereas many of the antagonists are described in much less flattering terms) reinforces the message that beauty has some kind of morality attached to it, and that all heroines are somehow pretty."
     

  7. "Since the development of capitalism, the bourgeoisie has promoted a set of psychological assumptions that workers are lazy and lack ambition, which means they only work to avoid starving to death, and that therefore there is no reason to pay them more than near-starvation wages because no more work can be eked out."

    I’m pretty sure the “Golden Age” of children’s anything is whatever was happening roughly a decade after your own birth year but still I was in love with some of these surrealist cartoons

  9. "This idea that back then we had made a ‘gay’ movie, [Megan] was a ‘gay’ cheerleader, and now I’m a ‘gay’ prisoner … is such a glaring injustice. You would never say, ‘Oh what’s this movie about?’ ‘It’s this guy, he’s a straight lawyer and he falls for this straight doctor and they go on a straight honeymoon.’"
