"just being a dude haha wearing my meggings to broga gonna take the brobus to dudesville with my boys haha no homo bro did i mention i am a man"
celebrate women over 50 because once we stop being useful to straight men’s desire as sex objects, we stop being useful to the broader culture as a whole and become invisible and disrespected. it’s up to us to engage with, respect, remember, valourize, speak about, learn from, and love women over 50…

Caitlin Stasey being the hero we all deserve.
if you feel the need to preface your Feminist Commentary about a victim of a sex crime with, “okay, i don’t like her, she is incredibly gross and problematic, but she still doesn’t deserve…” then just do us all a favour and shut the fuck up

When we live in a world where you can access free content of naked consenting women in less than 5 seconds, why are people still invading the privacy of non-consenting women for nudes?
Hint: It has something to do with people feeling entitled to making any woman their personal porn, even if it violates or humiliates her in the process.
Always seeking the “good” in white people even when their behavior is evil and always seeking the “evil” in black people even when their behavior is good.
Quentin Tarantino, “The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing”
Film editing is one of those positions that women take because they can’t get hired as directors. Kind of like how women in the comics industry end up as colorists because noone wants them as the headline artist.
How many great directors have partnered consistently with female editors? A lot of them. Scorsese is a great example. Thelma Schoonmaker has edited every single one of his films since 1980, starting with Raging Bull. She is instrumental to his success. But is she a household name like Scorsese is? Of course not.
Imagine a world where she directed her own films, and what those films could have been like. I’m not saying all film editors wish they were directors or anything. But it’s no coincidence that the position most open to female moviemakers is the most unsung, and that’s part of why there are so few female directors today.
it should not even be possible for me to read a thread where someone is trying to ~helpfully explain~ how saying “fuck lesbians” isn’t homophobic
