Reasons I love Megan Denise Fox.

Because if I don’t stand up for her, who will? Okay, I can name about 6 people that will, but we’re small voices that can’t do anything. But I’m not gonna stop standing up for her. Even if the media refuses to NOT take Michael’s side.
You don’t have to be a fan of Megan Fox to acknowledge the injustice Megan suffered on the set of Transformers from Michael Bay and his “loyal” crew. When Megan’s comment on Michael Bay came out, everyone sided with Michael Bay, calling Megan a “brat” or “ungrateful” and saying she should have kept her mouth shut. These are grown ass men and they couldn’t shrug off a comment from a 23 year old woman. This Behind the Scene clip is just a glimpse and I cannot even imagine what ended up on the cutting room floor. Detailed bullet point of their relationship throughout the years. (stops after Jonah Hex) [x]
Michael made Megan model wardrobe options (short shorts and belly tops) in front of a room full of men, made her audition by washing his car in a bikini while he filmed it (of which Michael Bay hasn’t denied) And while the disgusting 3 quarters of the planet will side with Michael saying Megan’s a “whore” and “agreed to it anyways” or “asked for it”, do not know her side of the story. Megan’s wanted to act for her entire life stemming from Judy Garland and Marilyn Monroe.Day in and day out for both Transformers movies, Megan had this tyrant barking orders at her about bending over the car, arch her back and dictating what she wore and even naming her character after himself. Michael Bay is disgusting. I don’t care what Megan says about him now, it doesn’t excuse how he treated her and dragged her name through the mud. Megan’s been on 12 movies so far and has only had ONE crew complain about her. But to this day, people BELIEVE she’s the bad one to work with. That’s the power of this piece of shit, Michael Bay.

With all the heat Anita Sarkeesian gets for her Tropes series, you’d think it was a new topic, but Gene Siskel & Roger Ebert had a discussion on a similar theme when they were talking about the influx of slasher movies on their show in 1980.

(x)

34 years later and this is STILL relevant

WHOA. I had never seen anything about them doing this.

It’s a shame people remember them for their thumbs.

the more things change…

Mother shot dead in Detroit bar after spurning man’s advances 

girlwithakiwi:

lyrangalia:

Where’s that quote again, that feminism makes men feel bad but that misogyny gets women killed?

Can we talk about how this woman is reported to have repeatedly told this man that she was not interested?

Can we talk about how she informed him that she was already taken even though, as has often been pointed out, a woman’s relationship status should not mean anything if she still tells someone NO?

Can we talk about how this man continued to harass her until he decided he didn’t like her answer and killed her for it?

Can we talk about how several other people were injured because this man couldn’t get it through his skull that this particular woman had utterly no interest in having sex with him?

Can we talk about how this group of family and friends who had just attended the funeral of someone else they lost must now the plan another funeral because a woman had the gall to turn down a man’s advances?

Can we talk about the three little boys who no longer have a mother?

And can we talk about the usual suspects on Tumblr, who often harshly decry misogyny and wave the great feminist flag so that women can be treated as equal and not mere sex objects, have been utterly mum on this incident? 

Or should we just wait until it’s a white man pulling the trigger and a white woman getting killed? Is that when we’ll talk about this?

Sexism 60’s

jesus???????????????

What the fuck was wrong with men in the 60’s?

advertising is important as it’s the historian’s best resource for identifying the values of an era. but yeah, these were fucked. the 60s was generally as fucked as the 50s. people forget that. 

It literally says ‘men are better than women’ in bold type, what the fuck. I knew this was a thing, but that is a lack of subtlety I couldn’t have written into a spoof…

This is the generation that spawned most of our parents… People our parents’ age run Washington. Starting to make sense?

When you look to the past, the struggles of the present become a great deal more clear.

White feminists:

quietbang:

split-the-coast:

When you discuss the wage gap, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Only white women make $0.77 to a man’s dollar.
  • Black women make about $0.68 to a man’s dollar.
  • Latina women make about $0.58 to a man’s dollar.

Intersectionality matters.

I will keep reblogging this to point out that disabled people, including men, make 22 cents on the dollar. Mostly because it is legal to pay us below minimum wage, but whatevs.

This Licensed T-Shirt Tells You a Lot About How DC Comics Views Wonder Woman

northstarfan:

dcwomenkickingass:

Warner Bros. makes a lot of money each year licensing the rights to the superhero IP of DC Comics. And that includes literally hundreds of t-shirts. We know that licensing can be pretty strict. It took a public shaming for them to allow the Superman logo to be used on a statue of a young fan who had been starved to death.

So it’s always interesting to what DOES get signed off on. Like this shirt.

I just… I don’t have the words for this…

I do, but it’s all profanity.

If you are okay with the word “breeder”

a-little-bi-furious:

…you probably don’t know how it is used or its history.

I know a lot of people think it just means straight people and it’s a harmless jab at the privileged but it is not.

It is a biphobic, cissexist, racist and generally awful term.

This comic explains why pretty well.

As you can see “breeders” was chanted at bisexuals during London Pride this year and this is not an isolated incident, this is a regular experience at Pride around the world for many bisexuals. It is not only equating them as straight people (since this insult is used against straight people too) but also hypersexualises them for being “good breeders”, there’s the biphobia.

As the comic demonstrates this is especially hard for people who for whatever reason cannot have children, having problems “breeding”, this includes people who have misscarried, people who have recovered from illnesses where their reproductive parts have had to be removed, trans people who have undergone gender ressignment surgery and intersex people. It is essentially stripping people down to their reproductive capabilities and genitals, there’s your cissexism.

The word also has a very racist history, during the slave era “breeder” was often used to refer to black women who were designated for breeding new slaves and even now “welfare breeder” is used as a derogatory term to refer to, primarily, black single mothers. When this word is aimed at poc, especially black and latina women, it brings up a reminder of racism and being stripped of their autonomy to become livestock, there’s your racism.

It can also be very misogynistic when it is aimed at women since reducing women to reproductive value in general is a core value of misogyny.

Seriously don’t use this word, it sucks, it hurts people, let it die.
