male celebrities for Emma Watson’s #heforshe

can someone please explain to me just why this made me puke in my mouth a lil itty bitty bit?

because if it wasn’t emma watson nobody would do it 

because lena dunham sucks

Whatever this is just trendy bullshit. Jared Leto is a known rapist and plenty of these guys never make any content that that takes women seriously.

#Heforshe is a meaningless tag and doesn’t address anything specific. Watson tweeted to say WHY but I guess that was too much work.

Talk about white feminism!

i didn’t include the tweets too because i was trying to be concise

when i made this i didn’t know about jared leto and since have learned that he’s shit and i am sorry for including him and i didn’t know about lena dunham either and i’m sorry for that too

however, the majority of these guys have done nothing wrong and you’re angry at them for what? supporting feminism? using the privilege they have to advocate for gender equality? the heforshe movement is very cis-centric and so far it’s been mostly white people, but that doesn’t mean it’s all bad and not a step forward. this is helping a lot of people see feminism as not a bad thing and people will learn

***URGENT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT***
Grindr, a popular app for gay men, now carries an urgent warning for users in Egypt. According to many sources, Egyptian authorities are posing as LGBT people on various social media sites to identify and arrest homosexual people. The app is urging users in the region to proceed with extreme caution, especially when identifying themselves or arranging meetings/hookups. While so far the focus seems to be on gay men, all LGBT people in the area should be cautious. Reports show that Egyptian police have carried out violent raids on private homes which lead to the arrests of several gay men. These men were then subjected to disturbing medical “exams.” Police also raided an LGBT party last year, violently arresting many and sentencing them to up to 12 years hard labour. While homosexuality is not illegal in Egypt, athorities are using sexual deviance, debauchery and insulting public morals as terms for the crackdown. Many claim this fresh attack on the LGBT community is lead by President Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi who wishes for his country to be more Islamic.
For all of my LGBT friends here on tumblr, please be extremely careful as this situation develops. Remember to clear your search history, use private browsing if possible, and be extremely cautious with who you talk to online.

  • 1: We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of
  • 1: If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
  • 1: And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
  • 1: In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
  • 1: If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
  • 1: Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people
  • 1: And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
  • 1: The parent who is working 16 hours a day

You can’t pick and choose what parts of feminism you want. You can’t support your queer sisters but not your trans sisters. You can’t support your fat sisters but not your sisters of colour. Being a feminist means creating a positive and equal space for women. The second you start excluding women based on which characteristics you do or do not find appealing you have defeated the whole point of being a feminist.

I may have a problem where I do research on some topic because someone doubts my knowledge. I may value my knowledge high enough that when someone decides that I don’t know what I am talking about and that someone doesn’t even want to see if their information is right because they assume they are always right, I get a tiny bit pissed. I have only been praised on my innate need to understand something and to learn as much as possible to the point that I do not need someone to tell me I am wrong. I do that enough on my own time. I don’t get pissed or make a big deal about their knowledge of anything or their idiosyncrasies, but don’t ever think to call me out on what you assume is bullshit. I don’t assume everything said by another person is bullshit no matter how bitchy or ignorant thy sound.
End of rant.

THIS WILL BE SUCH A LONG MARATHON AND I AM SO READY

That’s prob about 12 hours

extended lotr alone is 11 hours and 22 minutes.

LOTR Extended = 681 minutesHobbit 1 Extended = 182 minutesHobbit 2 Extended = approx. 186 minutesLet’s say Hobbit 3 Extended is at least 185 minutes
The full marathon run time will be around 1234 minutes, or 20 hours 30 minutes.

#perfect that leaves 3 and a half hours for snack runs and pee breaks

let’s weed out the weak ones
