ayyy let’s not forget the fact that if terra had been a male character majority of the fandom would love her
an attractive male with trust issues that falls down a dark path and ends up saving everyone in the end? everyone would LOVE that considering tumblr’s obsession with babying white…
"You’re 6’4", 240-pound Marine, and you’re injured, and you need a Marine next to you to carry you back to safety, and the Marine next to you is a 5’4" woman who weighs 115 pounds,"
in before “well most women can’t do that” because NEWS FLASH most men can’t either, that’s why it’s a highly specialized career that requires a lot of devoted training
One of my former coworkers was a very slim girl only a tad taller than me, and she was training to be a fireman, and she could lift the biggest dude on my crew like this who was around 6’5 and super bulky.One time she picked him up and ran around the crew room with him for about 5 minutes before letting him down.
Even though I haven’t exercised in over a year—if you count DDR—and I’m incredibly petite (5’0”, 100 lbs), I can carry most guys. If they’re under 200 lbs, I can run with them on my back for 5 blocks, but I can walk for a mile. Once they’re about 250, I can only walk about a block or two before my spine feels like it’s about to break. If I were in a survival situation and their life depended on it, I could go on much further, until my legs gave out.
It’s why I hate the bullshit that women are inherently weak. Nah, man. Nah.
So yeah, for the record: women are not significantly weaker than men. Especially if we talk about people with lots of training in terms of fighting and/or saving lives. Especially especially if we consider that there are techniques and moves, like this one, specifically designed for smaller people to handle some heavy weight.
bigoted feminism is feminism but it’s an extremely skewed and awful version of feminism that needs to be called out and critiqued and altered. there are huge problems within the feminist movement such as racism and transphobia and transmisogyny that need to be addressed, and writing off these sort of things as “not real feminism” ignores these issues and writes off the experiences of the affected people as unimportant
I am against the popular notion that breasts are genitals.
They are made of the exact same organs and tissue that are found in males. Infact, men are capable of developing fully functional breasts. This can be done without hormone therapy. Breasts aren’t triggered by the female chromosome, they are triggered by hormones that are present in both men and women.
People have argued that because some women can orgasm through prolonged interaction with their nipples, so that somehow means girl’s nipples are sex organs, aka Genitals! That suggests that breastfeeding is a form of child rape. Women can orgasm during childbirth, is birth rape? What the F*** kind of arguments are these?
There is no reason to discriminate against women exposing the exact same body parts that men do, especially since women have an actual reason to expose their breasts in public. Breasts feed babies, that is their purpose. Not letting people feed their babies in public is ridiculous and stupid.
Countries where women are more liberated with what they are allowed to do with their own bodies have fewer percentages of rape victims.
Showing your breasts does not equate to nudity.
