↳Catherine in 1.16
Rhiannon Thomas’s dazzling debut novel is a spellbinding reimagining of what happens after happily ever after.
One hundred years after falling asleep, Princess Aurora wakes up to the kiss of a handsome prince and a broken kingdom that has been dreaming of her return. All the books say that…
First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (it is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.
In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.
In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.
I just stumbled upon the fantastic web series Til Lease Do Us Part, and now I have to shout it from the Tumblr rooftops! Or — whatever. The point is, this series is amaaazing and y’all should watch it!
It’s about Shannon and Mikka, who move in together when they are in the happy lovey dovey bubble of new coupledom … and then break up, but decide to keep living together for financial reasons. This decision gets extra awkward once they both start dating new people. The banter is hilarious and weird and great, the actresses are spectacular, and I have to admit, I spend most of my time watching going, “BUT YOU HAVE TO GET BACK TOGETHER! JUST WORK ON YOUR COMMUNICATION SKILLS! YOUR HOPEFULLY JUST ON-PAUSE LOVE IS SO HILARIOUS AND BEAUTIFUL.”
Anyway, it is a festival of romcom magic, and I just figured Tumblr should be informed. :)
Here is the link for the full series YouTube playlist so far.
