I have read my OTP fall in love a thousand times, and I shall read my OTP fall in love a thousand times more

Me (via anihanki)

…or I would, if more people would write about them.

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, when I see something like this, my first thought is, “So, contribute.”

A List of “Men’s Rights” Issues That Feminism Is Already Working On

Feminists do not want you to lose custody of your children. The assumption that women are naturally better caregivers is part of patriarchy.

Feminists do not like commercials in which bumbling dads mess up the laundry and competent wives have to bustle in and fix it. The assumption that women are naturally better housekeepers is part of patriarchy.

Feminists do not want anyone to be falsely accused of rape. False rape accusations discredit rape victims, which reinforces rape culture, which is part of patriarchy.

Feminists do not want you to have to pay for dinner. We want the opportunity to achieve financial success on par with men in any field we choose (and are qualified for), and the fact that we currently don’t is part of patriarchy. The idea that men should coddle and provide for women, and/or purchase their affections in romantic contexts, is condescending and damaging and part of patriarchy.

Feminists do not want you to commit suicide. Any pressures and expectations that lower the quality of life of any gender are part of patriarchy. The fact that depression is characterized as an effeminate weakness, making men less likely to seek treatment, is part of patriarchy.

Feminists do not want you to be viewed with suspicion when you take your child to the park (men frequently insist that this is a serious issue, so I will take them at their word). The assumption that men are insatiable sexual animals, combined with the idea that it’s unnatural for men to care for children, is part of patriarchy.

Feminists do not want you to be drafted and then die in a war while we stay home and iron stuff. The idea that women are too weak to fight or too delicate to function in a military setting is part of patriarchy.

Feminists do not want women to escape prosecution on legitimate domestic violence charges, nor do we want men to be ridiculed for being raped or abused. The idea that women are naturally gentle and compliant and that victimhood is inherently feminine is part of patriarchy.

Feminists hate patriarchy. We do not hate you.

If you really care about those issues as passionately as you say you do, you should be thanking feminists, because feminism is a social movement actively dedicated to dismantling every single one of them. The fact that you blame feminists—your allies—for problems against which they have been struggling for decades suggests that supporting men isn’t nearly as important to you as resenting women. We care about your problems a lot. Could you try caring about ours?

berserk-confessions:

Lately, I’ve been imagining NeoGriffith flying right over to Elfhelm, capturing Guts and taking him back to Falconia. It would take me forever to describe what would happen, why, and how it would work, but I can only say that it would be intense and quite heartbreaking for certain people. I blame a fanfic prompt and a song(Magic Box 2 by Bel Canto). TBH, I’d like to see it happen, but I dread it at the same time. I would love it and despair.

If this were to really happen, it would be a very painful sort of hell. Can you imagine? Lose your first comrades, forced to watch someone you love brutalized to insanity, watch this former friend get away with it, and now you’re forced to serve such a person/being in close quarters. Worse yet, it would be caused by things that seemed so awesome(like say, sealing the brand/have it removed entirely, greater powers, Casca being cured, etc).

The prompt in question was this one:

The song(it’s two parts) is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=badxOKcmr7A

The World is Not Your Fucking Oyster

thedappledsky:

  • Other people’s cultures do not exist for white people to seek their spiritual enlightenment
  • No one owes you an education, and initiation, or a history lesson simply because ‘you want’
  • No one has to include you in things because ‘you want’
  • No one has to hold their tongue, sweeten their words, or chop up sentences to make white people feel better about history- colonization, slavery, genocide, ect.
  • No one should be ‘grateful’ to you for your interest in said culture

  1. Me: I ship these two women together so hard.
  2. Person: You just want to see them kiss.
  3. Me: No. I want to see them be friends. I want to see them slowly fall in love. I want to see them get giggly and flirt and blush and get flustered. I want them to go on an awkward first date and wait for the other's call. I want them to date. I want to see them go through hard times, but love each other enough to get through it together. I want them to fight and make up. I want them to get engaged and nervously tell their parents. I want them to argue over the wedding plans, but ultimately decide together. I want to see them get married. I want to see them have kids. I want to see them grow old together. Overall, I want to see their love story, and if they happen to kiss and I see, that's just an added bonus.
