EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO REBLOGS THIS WILL GET THE FOLLOWING IN THEIR INBOX.

  • A BRIEF ORIGIN STORY
  • A SUPERPOWER OR THREE, MAYBE FOUR DEPENDING
  • A SUPERHERO OR VILLAIN NAME
  • YOU MIGHT ALSO GET AN ARCHNEMESIS WHO HAS REBLOGGED THIS ALREADY

AND YES I MEAN EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO REBLOGS THIS. UNTIL, SAY, AUGUST 2015. A FULL YEAR. LONG ENOUGH, RIGHT?

LET’S DO THIS THING.

it’s so weird that men can make endless misogynistic comments and not have to reassure people that they don’t hate women but when women, especially those in the spotlight, talk about things concerning women they feel an overwhelming need to constantly reassure the world that they don’t hate men, that they love men. 

and by weird i mean a cultural norm to demean women and overvalue men.

Tonight I went out to a small pub for karaoke, and the DJ happened to notice that I have big breasts. (MAZEL TOV, YOU HAVE EYES! WELL SPOTTED!)
So anyway, this guy decides to do the bar a favor and say, “Wow, I don’t usually single people out, but did you see this girl’s breasts? They’re amazing!” I was horrified. Men came over to talk to me, I huddled in a corner with my phone and tried to look as unapproachable as possible. I considered leaving, but I was there with my friends and didn’t want to go home.
Eventually, I felt comfortable enough to go up and sing (“Foolish Games” obvi), and I guess I should have seen it coming, but the DJ went ahead and did a 5 minute bit about my boobs with me standing right there in front of everyone. I was already pretty nervous what with being a writer hanging out with a group of professional singers, and by the end of his bit, I wanted to crawl under the floor and die. I cracked a joke about being uncomfortable (yaaaay comedy writer), and the DJ said, "Relax, it’s a compliment."
No. No. No.
Reducing me to the body parts you like best is not a compliment. Demeaning me and making me feel small is not a compliment. Reminding me that you and any other man who wants to can take my body as your own whenever you feel like it is not a compliment, no matter how jokey or flattering or whatever your tone.
I am sick of having to pretend harassment is flattery, and even more sick of being called ill-humored when I respond poorly. When I get upset about your harassment, I’m not ruining the fun. You are.
Sorry for the <rant>, but I’d like to pledge to be more outspoken in standing up for myself the next time this happens, no matter how scared or small I feel. Even more important, I hope I’ll have the guts to stand up for someone else next time I see something like this happening to another person — and I hope all of you (**especially you, male readers**) will do the same. Smooches! </rant>

This post hit me hard. As someone in a similar situation, I completely understand and sympathize. I avoid eye contact, hide behind my phone, wear plenty of scarves/ avoid tight fitting tops as a result of the harassment—“compliments”— I have received over the years, starting in middle school. What’s more, how often are men singled out this way, in public situations? I can’t imagine it being the case, except perhaps in rare isolated incidents. Unfortunately, until men can recognize the difference between sexual harassment and compliments, until we as a society can stop objectifying women, this just won’t stop happening. Ugh.

My hopes for book 4 legend of korra:

1. Resolve/acknowledge the former issue of spirit vines taking over the city. I mean this was a problem right? I know in the face of anarchy it is insignificant but I want to know what happens okay

2. Korra being happy again and somehow reconnecting with her past avatar selves?

3. Makorra (a healthy, more mature version that wouldn’t interfere with the korra and asami friendship)

4. More Bopal. And jinora/Kai

5. To go with the vines: more spirit involvement. It seems like they are in hiding or something.

6. keep up with Lord Zuko! And show his daughter and grandson(?) please please.

7. Solve the mystery of Toph, Toph’s lovers, everything Toph.

8. Airbender nation being awesome

This is just such a greedy list. I just want everything. I want avatar/lok to last forever. *weeps*

"I killed Prim," Gale said with an evil sneer. "And I properly meant to as well," he added, laughing maniacally.

Right?? I don’t get why people hate him so much. He didn’t intend to!
