In dreams, we live in a world entirely our own

These days, before we talk about misogyny, women are increasingly being asked to modify our language so we don’t hurt men’s feelings. Don’t say, “Men oppress women” – that’s sexism, as bad as any sexism women ever have to handle, possibly worse. Instead, say, “Some men oppress women.” Whatever you do, don’t generalise. That’s something men do. Not all men – just some men.

This type of semantic squabbling is a very effective way of getting women to shut up. After all, most of us grew up learning that being a good girl was all about putting other people’s feelings ahead of our own. We aren’t supposed to say what we think if there’s a chance it might upset somebody else or, worse, make them angry. So we stifle our speech with apologies, caveats and soothing sounds. We reassure our friends and loved ones that “you’re not one of those men who hate women”.

What we don’t say is: of course not all men hate women. But culture hates women, so men who grow up in a sexist culture have a tendency to do and say sexist things, often without meaning to. We aren’t judging you for who you are but that doesn’t mean we’re not asking you to change your behaviour. What you feel about women in your heart is of less immediate importance than how you treat them on a daily basis.

You can be the gentlest, sweetest man in the world yet still benefit from sexism. That’s how oppression works.

Of course all men don’t hate women. But all men must know they benefit from sexism  (via albinwonderland)

I like “semantic squabbling.” I’m using that one.

Watch the whole talk here»

This guy stopped watching porn — and he wants you to know why. Gender activist Ran Gavrieli felt that most of the images he saw in porn encouraged negative, even violent, attitudes toward women, despite a recent wave of feminist porn. So he pulled the plug, and found that his personal sex life and private fantasies became much more fulfilling.

In his talk at TEDxJaffa, he advocates for physically and emotionally-safe sex, as well as erotica that shows a wider range of fulfilling sexual experiences — including the intimacy of human connection, laughter, and touch. Watch his talk here.

There are plenty of ex porn stars who have said pretty much the same based on their experiences in the industry, like Danielle “Queen B” Williams. Yet there are people in these notes behaving like this guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about and is a sex negative asshole instead of someone who’s actually actively removing himself from contributing to an industry that overwhelmingly exploits women. He’s making the effort to stop funding and participating in sexploitation and human trafficking and people are behaving like he’s being a terrible human being.

Supernatural Promotions Season 1 vs Season 9

Sometimes it’s hard to believe they’ve been around for 9 years!

Who would have thought he hated Twilight so much?

This guy.

He hates Twilight more than Stephen King. 

Even the Twilight actors hate Twilight
