WHY IS THIS SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND
So for all you feminists out their who think that all men should die, remember, you are not a feminist.
reblogging for the last comment
Legit question, I’m not trying to hate on feminists or anything. Why is it called feminist if they’re for equality?
That’s a very good question and thank you for asking so politely.
The word feminism was coined by Charles Fourier in 1837, a French philosopher who advocated for the emancipation of women because he believed society treated women as slaves. We weren’t allowed to vote, own anything, or work a real job. Women were ruled by their fathers/household patriarch until they married at which time they’d be under the rule of their husband. If a woman did not belong to male household she was shunned by society and had very little means to make money, most of them unsavory. You know the idiom “rule of thumb”? That comes from a running joke that started in the 1600s, and was still around in Fourier’s time, that said it was okay for a man to beat a woman with a stick as long as it wasn’t any thicker than his thumb.
The point of the word feminist, and the feminist movement, has never been to say that women are better than men. The point is that women and things associated with women have been given a lesser place in society and we want to bring those things up to a place of equality. The focus is on the feminine because that’s what’s being pushed down. However, focusing on the feminine does not mean we’re focusing only women. Men are belittled and called “less of a man” anytime they portray a trait that is associated with femininity. If women and the feminine were equal to men and masculinity then that wouldn’t happen. Feminism is about raising up things associated with females to have an equal place in society as the things associated with males. It’s called feminism, not equalism, because the focus is on raising up not tearing down. Equalism would suggest that male things need to come down to a lower level so that female things can meet it in the middle. That’s not the point. The point is to raise up the feminine so that it’s on the same playing field that the masculine is already on. We don’t want men to lower themselves, we just want them to make room for us.
This needs to be spread far and wide to everyone on tumblr.
This needs more notes
1+2) I see no "equating".
3) This point has some merit.
4) That applies more to your post than to the tweet. ;)
5) He isn't proposing that you could know for sure just from the usage of the word fun.
On a philosophical level it means nothing. Literally everyone is an artist.
Within three days of becoming engaged, I had already been told that I shouldn’t wear my glasses, because they’re not bridal. I was told my cane wasn’t bridal. I was told my eye… was not bridal. And I realized that if I was going to be “bridal” in their eyes, I was going to have to change who I am. I am proudly disabled.

“— Der Ruf nach einer deutschen Atombombe – wir stehen am Beginn einer Kampagne, die uns noch längere Zeit beschäftigen wird | NachDenkSeiten – Die kritische Website
Die Kampagne für eine atomare Bewaffnung Deutschlands ist übrigens beileibe kein Gedankenspiel, das nur von Journalisten gespielt wird, die zu viel Zeit haben und von Rüstungsfirmen über die Think Tanks zu viel Geld zugesteckt bekommen. Ein großer Fan der nuklearen Bewaffnung Deutschlands ist auch Roderich Kiesewetter, seines Zeichens Oberst a.D., Bundestagsabgeordneter der CDU, ehemaliger Obmann im NSA-Untersuchungsausschuss und Angehöriger unzähliger Wehrkunde- und Lobbyismus-Verbände.
Ginge es nach Kiesewetter würde die neue europäische Atommacht auf dem Gerüst der französischen Nuklearstreitkräfte entstehen. Dafür müsste Frankreich die Waffen der EU unterstellen und sie in der gesamten EU stationieren. Deutschland solle sich dafür im Gegenzug an der Finanzierung beteiligen. Aber dies sei aber nur der erste Schritt, eine Auflösung der Denkblockaden so Kiesewetter. Zu einer echten Abschreckung gehöre dann auch eine gemeinsame Doktrin, die es ermöglicht, die Waffen auch in einem nicht-nuklearen Konflikt einzusetzen. „Dies sind politische Waffen. Ihr Gebrauch muss unvorhersehbar sein“, so der CDU-Abgeordnete. Nach eigenen Aussagen hat Kiesewetter für seine Atompläne sowohl von einigen „relevanten“ Ministerien in Berlin, dem NATO-Hauptquartier als auch den Regierungen in Polen und Ungarn bereits Rückendeckung.
Es geht hier also um viel mehr als um eine schlechte Panorama-Sendung. Wir befinden uns mitten im Beginn einer Kampagne, die uns sicher auch noch lange begleiten wird.”
