RELEVANT TO HUMANITY

Relevant to tumblr.

Relevant to existence.

The question why I would LET Willow cut her hair. First the LET must be challenged. This is a world where women, girls are constantly reminded that they don’t belong to themselves; that their bodies are not their own, nor their power or self determination. I made a promise to endow my little girl with the power to always know that her body, spirit and her mind are HER domain. Willow cut her hair because her beauty, her value, her worth is not measured by the length of her hair. It’s also a statement that claims that even little girls have the RIGHT to own themselves and should not be a slave to even their mother’s deepest insecurities, hopes and desires. Even little girls should not be a slave to the preconceived ideas of what a culture believes a little girl should be.

areyoustevebuschittingme:

the fact that pascalcampion mentions a young lady’s portfolio i feel is extra significant

women artists are told throughout their entire learning process that their work and their ideas are not wanted or valued

  • fangirling (slash fanfiction, mary sues, slash fanart, sparkly vampires, fancomics, character driven work with no backgrounds) is indulgent
  • fanboying (drawings of robots, ‘classy’ girly pinups, drawings of monsters, concept art, technical drawings, fan movie posters) however, is professional***

in classes, tutorials, portfolio reviews, and in the public discourse on art, this thread of conversation faces women at every turn. we all do it, ESPECIALLY other women, who will actively put down female work for not being technically proficient enough.

how many times have you heard a female artist being put down because all she draws is ‘fanart’?

why do we call female driven work ‘zines’ or ‘fanbooks’ when a male driven version of the same work would be called an ‘artbook’?

so in many cases female artists’ response to these criticisms is to bend their work to a more ‘professional’ and ‘technical’ sensibility, losing the personal quality in their work in the process

if you want to know why gender demographics are so skewed in the art world, you only have to look at how we treat growing female artists

technique can be learned. good ideas can’t.

***OBVIOUSLY these are GENERALIZATIONS of the kinds of things men and women draw, but it’s important nonetheless that we acknowledge how skewed and biased our perception of what’s “legitimate fanwork” and what’s “indulgent fanwork”

Gonna write that novel about how much sexism there is toward female geek artists.

There is no designated time for anything in your life. You don’t have to have your first kiss at any certain time, you don’t have to get married in your 20′s and you don’t have to do anything just because other people think it’s best. In fact, you will be much better off if you just do what your heart says. The day you stop caring what other people think is the day their opinions don’t mean anything, because you’re not there to give them weight.

As a kid, I wanted to be a boy because I equated that with strength. There’s a problem with that. It’s only growing into my own womanhood that I realize how warped that is that I was attributing strength to male qualities.

gingerhaze:

I want to tell you guys a joke. Okay. Here’s the joke. Ready? Misandry. Haha! Get it? No?

Okay. I’ll explain it. I know that will make it less funny because explaining jokes makes them less funny, but I want you to be in on the joke too. Because in the end it matters to me that you understand this. Because we’re friends, right?

"Why are you making fun of misandry, Gingerhaze? There ARE people who hate men. And no one should be hated based on factors that they have no control over!" Right you are, Straw Man! And yeah, there ARE women who legitimately hate men. There are even probably legitimately women who want to kill men, just for being men. But guess what? That number is so incredibly small as to really not count at all in the grand scheme of things. Any scientific survey taken of that number would not really factor it at all into the final report - in the grand scheme, it’s a fluke. And that’s what we’re talking about here: the grand scheme.

The truth of the matter is that it is INCREDIBLY HARD to live as an honest-to-god misandrist. For a woman to succeed, or even survive, in today’s society, she is expected to be able to relate to, understand, admire, respect, and appeal to, men. And that’s the reason why 99.9% of “misandrists” you will see - especially on the INTERNET for chrissakes - are JOKING. Can’t you take a joke? Men have no sense of humor, do they!

See what I did there? I made a joke at the expense of men. Misandry! Does that affect your life? Not really. Because the joke depends on the fact that, hey, in every other situation that’s what people say about women! That’s right! EVERY OTHER SITUATION. 

Because for me, misogyny affects every single part of my life. All the time. A lot of this I’m just used to, and I just go about my life. I relate to men and I like men and I try to appeal to men in order to succeed, just like everyone else. I’m a pretty chill person. But it gets frustrating. Oh boy, does it. 

So I make jokes. I flip the scenarios where I can and I try to make something out of it that I can laugh at, when really it’s not funny at all. 

MISANDRY ISN’T REAL. That is, there is no social institution in place to enforce it. Are feminists too hard on you? Do you really think feminists are calling the shots in this world? Ha. They’re not, yo. Actually we’re living in a world that’s trying very hard to beat feminists down.

What’s happening when you cry “misandry” is you’re taking a very small slice of the problem and choosing to look only at that. Do you think My Little Pony is misandrist for having so few male characters? See, that’s FUNNY to everyone else, because we’ve been experiencing a wide spectrum of media where women make up only like,15-20% of characters. And now here’s this one thing where males aren’t the dominant voice and suddenly that’s misandry. 

But dudes, you’re not nuts! There really is a social institution in place that negatively affects you! It makes your life harder and it might be making you miserable right now! It’s called…misogyny. Oh sure, it’s not so hard on you as it is on non-male people, but you’re definitely getting a lot of shit here too. It’s the pressure of not having sex often enough, of not being successful enough or strong enough or “man” enough, and it’s a total drag. I feel ya, bros. I really do. But really what’s happening here is you’re suffering the side effects of a culture that hates women. Because you wouldn’t want to be too much like a woman, would you? Women are a bad thing to be, right? 

So don’t make it all about your problems. Help us fight the real problem. Do you hate being lumped in with rapists and wife-beaters and straight-up misogynists? Don’t come crying to me that “not all men are like that.” I KNOW that, man. How about instead you PROVE you’re not like that? How about you make it really really clear you don’t condone those guys and you call them out? 

Do you get the joke now? I hope you do.

It is because society tells us that women are objects, not subjects, that Stephen Hawkings can declare women to be “a complete mystery”, and have newspapers gleefully latch on to this, declaring women “the greatest mystery known to man”. It is a common refrain for men to bleat about not understanding women, but this is because they have simply never tried, because society has trained them to never look at life through the eyes of a woman.
