If the point of the Big Bang Theory was to show that male nerds can be just as sexist as male jocks then well done I guess

It seems french_29 can’t understand why I wouldn’t want to be friends with him after he said this.

Wtf, and we have a 92% match…obviously I’m doing something very, very wrong.

What a fucking douche.

Even little kids have a wage gap

  • Boys, on average, spend two fewer hours doing household chores per week than girls do (they play two hours more).
  • If they live in households where children are compensated for doing chores, boys make and save more money.
  • A 2009 study conducted by University of Michigan economists found a two-hour gender disparity in responsibilities per week in a study of 3,000 kids.
  • 75 percent of girls had chores, while just 65 percent of boys do
  • This disparity in chores and free time continues into adulthood all over the world. According to the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), men “report spending more time in activities counted as leisure than women. Gender differences in leisure time are wide across OECD countries.”
  • Year after year, studies repeatedly confirm these patterns.
  • The problems women face with unequal pay and housework duties actually start in childhood.
  • The fact that boys’ chores appear to be more profitable makes the childhood chore gap even more disturbing. Turns out, parents tend to value the work that boys do more.
  • Gender stereotypes dictate these patterns.
  • men who grow up with sisters do less housework than their spouses and are also significantly more socially conservative.

Just had to bold that bottom point there because of the amount of misogynists who claim that because they have women in their family, they can’t POSSIBLY be sexist ever.

oh my fucking god

I vividly remember all the families in my church where the grade-school boys were goofing off with toys and the girls were being handed younger babies and turned into babysitters.

Boys got to be boys, but girls had to be Moms.

Really, it ‘s a serious drag that even little girls today could answer #WithoutTheWageGapIWould

I find the assumption that just because you’re a rampant pervert you enjoy kink parties annoying.

Some findomme gifs from a video I will be releasing later on ~ 

I thought I’d really found some common ground with someone at the bar last night who was ranting about how rude it was that people in the scene here didn’t acknowledge her existence.

However, after I left because my eyes were bugging me, she tried to pick up my husband, ironically not acknowledging the existence of his wife who had been sitting across the table from her earlier.

A Handy Guide to What Is and Isn’t Cultural Appropriation

[snipped the previous posts]

"Using that culture’s dance/physical traditions in specific settings (i.e. taking belly-dancing classes"

This has to be qualified with a couple of things -

If you take belly-dancing or any other cultural forms of art, expression, dance or martial arts, your teacher must be from that culture. If you are in a class full of people who are not from that culture, you are probably all appropriating. The culture belongs to the people from that culture; not to you. You must behave like a guest. That means you must be invited. If in doubt, don’t presume, and stay away from the class. Sometimes people of colour have to commodify their own cultures to survive. Make sure you don’t participate in this.

You cannot learn it and then go around teaching it yourself. You cannot take the knowledge you got in that class and go and perform it in public. You are taking away opportunities from dancers from that culture who know it better than you (at a spiritual and cultural level), and benefiting off your white privilege. Like North African and West Asian restaurants sometimes have white “belly-dancers” which is extremely offensive. Here is an article about it: http://www.salon.com/2014/03/04/why_i_cant_stand_white_belly_dancers/

These lists of what is and what isn’t cultural appropriation bother me, because it’s always complex and contextual. The things on the list of “what isn’t” can definitely be instances of appropriation in many cases, causing harm to people from that culture. And the things on the list of “what is” seem iffy to me, many of those points implying that intent has something to do with racist appropriation.

And, knowing racists, they will take lists like these and bend their appropriation and disrespect in such ways that they can continue to appropriate and disrespect without technically breaking any of the “rules” listed above. I’ve come across vile racists who’ve gone up to Indian people they barely knew and demanded to be given Indian clothing, and then used their politeness as an excuse for appropriation because they were “invited”. I just don’t find these lists helpful.

Thank you for the commentary.  Sometimes it is frustrating having so many specific asks about “is this appropriation or not” which was why I had reblogged the list hoping the less annoying folks would bother to read and try to digest and comprehend, but did not think about how racists can and will take shit out of context/selectively read lists like that and then try to use them as “proof” that they are somehow shielded from any claims of racism and appropriation leveled at them.
