Aaron Taylor Johnson response to sexist questions may be my new favorite thing. (x)
so this is what i ended up with for the “make your audience angry” assignment
i dont know about ya’ll but that phrase pisses me right the hell off
Side tip: if anyone ever grabs your hair like the above, clamp one hand HARD down on your scalp where the hair is coming out (think of how you try to immobilize your hair when brushing tangles out so it doesn’t hurt as bad, only do so at the scalp and not further down the hair). Then use your other hand to start hitting the other person (go for the face!) and blocking any blows they may try to make with their free hand. You can also step into them (which removes the tension on your hair) and start throwing your knees into their groin, stomach, kick the side of their knee, etc.
The reason hair-pulling works is A) it HURTS and B) it’s an effective handle, especially because your instinct is going to be to pull away. But reduce the pain and the tension on the hair and you have more room to work with until the other person lets go, at which point you can run like hell or otherwise defend yourself as needed.
Another tip-Use the strenght of the pull and headbutt the fuckers. People tend to pull toward their faces. Use the forehead, careful not to break your nose, and if your attacker is taller use the pull for impulse and hit them in the throat or right under the sternum, it’ll leave them breathless.
BOYS WILL BE SHIT, AND MEN ARE SHIT.
I love seeing other lesbians in public like hello yes I am of your kind
I LOVE SHARING THE LOOK OF ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
I don’t really feel like I’ve made it — I feel like I’m just a silly girl from Detroit that’s on a TV show. But there was a moment last summer at Comic-Con where I was taken aback. It was the first time we had to have security because there were masses and masses of fans, and that could be a security threat. I had a slight feeling like if they just reached me, things could get out of hand. That whole crazy fandom is insane.
mainstream tumblr feminism may have many glaring faults but it has bred an army of teenage girls who understand the common ways that misogyny is reinforced in society and who know that they’re better off loving their fellow woman than fighting with her and that’s actually pretty damn revolutionary
I have been waiting three years for this tumblr post.
It’s like she’s getting younger.
You forgot one
This should be posted in school hallways.
Why do you all assume guys are pro rape?oh my fucking god shut up. She never said y’all are pro rape, but have you ever been to a high school or middle school? Boys are making rape jokes whenever they can and they think it’s hilarious but whenever a girl says she’s on her period y’all get uncomfortable. We understand that all men aren’t this way but she is talking about the ones who are. Chill.
If I’d have said ‘I love you’, she’d have said it back, and everything would’ve been different. I might have saved her. I might have found a way.
