Appropriation v. Appreciation: An Illustrated Style Guide
I really enjoyed reading Interrupt Magazine’s take on the difference between appropriating the aesthetic elements of other people’s cultures and appreciating them. It’s targeted at women (who tend to be a bit more aesthetically adventurous, after all) but it all applies to men, as well.
So: if you’ve ever wondered if an Indian blanket-inspired coat is something a white dude should wear, this is a good place to start.

I used to be really embarrassed when my parents would mess up their English but as I got older I realized my parents know Malayalam, Hindi, Tamil, AND English.

They’re way smarter than I am. So I started to chill.

Somebody start talking about how immigrants are dumb because they can’t speak English properly. I’d fucking like to see you try and even remember four different languages, you elitist and racist fuckbaby.

"I don’t need feminism,because I don’t believe in a movement that went from making actual differences in people’s lives to harassing men and demonizing them whilst making women just as bad look like saints,I need equality because I’m a person like you"
(via why-we-dont-need-feminism)

Feminism is not anti men. We don’t belittle men. We want to support each other’s rights. We aren’t man haters we are just pro women.

  • Anti-feminists: Feminists can't just decide that other women are feminists. It's disrespectful!
  • Anti-feminists: This woman said something I dislike. See how awful all feminists are?

"It’s pretty simple, really: If you believe in the social, political and economic equality of the sexes, you’re a feminist."

Anonymous said: Almost every single one of those anti-feminists don't identify with feminism because of the fact that modern day feminism in the western world is unnecessary. Those blogs are almost all run by females who are tired of feminists telling them what they, as women, are and are not. The movement perpetuates the idea of eternal victimness. Most of those blogs are egalitarian and support equal rights for all, including men, women, LGBTQIA, etc. Do research on blogs before trying to blast them.

THE DEFINITION OF FEMINISM IS EQUALITY FOR MEN AND WOMEN AND EVERY HUMAN IN BETWEEN. Don’t get on MY blog and not do YOUR research. I’m making a point that the when I simply search “feminism is..” the first thing that pops up is ANTI-FEMINISM and HATE rather than support and equality and love for a human rights issue. And do not try and patronize me on my blog for sharing my ideas and views. If you have something to say, speak up and show your face.

ALSO MOST PEOPLE WHO CLAIM TO BE ANTI FEMINIST REALLY ARE JUST FEMINISTS AND DONT UNDERSTAND WHT THE TRUE DICTIONARY DEFINITION IS

"It is the nature of capitalism to degrade, dehumanise, and oppress – to commodify everything and to exploit all but the tiny minority who control the world’s wealth. Rather than accidental, a perverse distortion of an otherwise fair system, this drive to commodify and exploit is the very nature of the beast."
