Disney home of sluts in the making
When wanting safe sex gets you branded a ‘slut’ you know we live in a culture full of people who hate women..
Ad for Goldieblox, a line of erector set/building block-type toys marketed at girls.
As soon as my mother saw this, she, quite literally, ran to my room to show me, as I am planning on going into engineering and she figured I’d enjoy this. And enjoy it I did. Not only does the ad contain cute little girls dressed in tutus and hardhats, a huge Rube Goldberg machine, and a parody of a Beastie Boys song, but the lyrics have been modified to fit what the product is intending to encourage: “girl toys” that inspire building and creativity the way “boy toys” do. I know there’s a lot of sentiment on here in the vein of “toys shouldn’t be marketed one way or another”, which is something I wholeheartedly agree with, but we still have a little while before we really start heading in that direction, especially with what you can hear from the line “You like to buy us pink toys/And everything else is for boys”. However, something like this definitely gonna help get us going in this direction. Once this, or a product like this, starts to take off, other manufacturers will catch on that these toys also appeal to girls, and thusly start marketing to either sex.
Not only this, but imagine the impact this will have on the kids playing with these sets. “Girls who grow up knowing that they can engineer that” indeed. When I was a kid I fuckin loved Legos and shit. One of my favorite toys was this set of “Snap Circuits”, which were exactly what they sound like, electronic components you can easily snap together to make different circuits to do different things, like light a bulb, or play a tune, or anything else you could do with the parts you had. And now, about a decade later, I’m on a competitive robotics team, I’m going to the Maker Faire, and soon enough, going off to study engineering. Imagine how I’d have turned out if no one had let me play with “boy toys”. Hopefully someday we’ll have a solid 50/50 ratio of male and female engineers and scientists and other unbalanced pursuits, and marketing campaigns such as these will do nothing but help.
why would you want to hang around harry for the fame when you could hang around for the harry
well that’s why ron and hermione hang around him anyways, they like him for who he is and not because he’s the boy who lived
Today on ‘is this a Harry Potter post or a One Direction post’
THE WORST FEELING EVER IS WHEN YOURE SO ENTHUSIASTIC TELLING SOMEONE SOMETHING AND YOU CAN JUST PHYSICALLY FEEL THEM NOT CARING AT ALL SO YOU TRY HARDER BUT YOU JUST CANNOT GRASP THEIR ATTENTION SO YOU SLOWLY FADE OUT AND LET THEM GO BACK TO DOING WHAT THEY DO AND YOU WANT TO APOLOGIZE FOR TAKING TIME OUT OF THEIR DAY TO TELL THEM SOMETHING YOU’RE HAPPY ABOUT
why do villains have to live in dark places like
why can’t they like pink
Let’s take a moment to talk about this. I mean, because first off, “Tell cars not to hit kids.” Well, yeah, we do that all the fucking time, idiot. Ever seen signs like these?
We have classes and signs and laws about it, and people are constantly reminded. So your argument only works if we put up signs everywhere reminding assholes not to rape. But you’d rather talk about how rape victims have it coming to them.
But the dumbest part of this crap? Roads exist for cars to drive on. Children need to be careful to cross the street because they’re entering into an environment that exists specifically for something that is dangerous to them. The only way this shit is a valid comparison is if you think that bars, parties, and the world in general exists specifically for men to have sex with women. And I gotta break it to the guys who support this stupidity- your dicks are not that important. So knock off this bullshit and stop excusing rapists.
Just in case you needed this today.
I SURE DID!
PLEASE DON’T BUY THESE PRODUCTS
lookhuman.com is a website that is currently selling two designs that are closely ripped off of phrases that i coined and popularized on my sideblog, fuckyeahsubversivekawaii, and on this blog. while they haven’t directly stolen my art or the art of my co-mod on FYSK, it’s very clear after browsing the rest of their merchandise that they get all their material by stealing ideas and phrases from popular tumblr posts and art.
i’ve decided not to take any kind of legal action. i know that the phrases are mine (and my co-mod’s, in the case of mermaids against misogyny), and you guys know that the phrases are ours, but there really isn’t much i can do besides post links to prove that my versions of these designs were up far, far sooner than these items were made (which i will do shortly.)
all i can do is ask you guys not to support this store. they are intellectual thieves (and shoddy activists - the vast majority of their merch is printed on american apparel products, which is funny when they’re selling “feminist” slogans).
and here’s the original sketch of my “dead men don’t catcall” design, posted on FYSK in june of 2013: [x]
along with the finished illustration which was posted in october: [x]
if you would like to purchase items with the dead men don’t catcall illustration, you can get them at my cafepress (where all the items are responsibly sourced.) i also have an etsy connected to FYSK, and i hope to offer more pinback buttons (including mermaids against misogyny ones!) by the end of the week.
thank you for your time, and sorry for stretching your dashes!
so don’t tell me abortion should be illegal
don’t you dare.

I’d never, ever hurt a lady but I’d be happy to punch a feminist.
It’d bring me great joy.

ready when you are
christmas eve what about christmas adam
happy christmas adam to all men’s rights activists
Please stop pestering us with things like this. This has nothing to do with men fighting for their rights. Eve is short for ‘evening’. Please don’t turn activism into a joke. Thanks.
Someone isn’t having a good christmas adam
