Why do dirty hippies act like John Lennon was a saint
He physically abused both his wives, emotionally abused his son, was openly homophobic and antisemetic, was controlling and misogynist, he literally made yoko ono write a list of all the men she’d been with and shamed her for it, was openly racist, wrote a song called “woman is the n-word of the world” (except actually used the slur) and never actually did any activist work, just posed with whatever groups and signs were counter-culture for the media, stated that the idea of disabled people touching him made him sick, used to pretend to be intellectually disabled on stage as a joke, and probably tons more shit that was never documented
Stop worshipping john lennon. The Beatles are mediocre and he was a horrifying human being
Didn’t he also beat someone to the point where they later had complications that led to their death
girls who pretend to act stupid because they think it’s cute need to be slapped in the face with a brick
girls who pretend to act stupid because they think it’s cute need to be taught that their thoughts and opinions matter. so many girls are taught that being smart and capable is threatening to boys and will scare them away. please don’t hit these girls with bricks thanks
The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…
"When I asked Felix if her job as pole-dancing stripper made her feel exploited, she replied with these words of wisdom: ”All labor is exploitative.”
Not what I expected, but her words rang true in my ears. I remembered a job that threatened to fire me if I logged the overtime hours they made me work. I remembered a boss commenting on my breasts, and when I threatened to report him he laughed and said those classic words, “Who’s going to believe you?” Are those instances any more exploitative than Felix choosing to fondle her breasts for money?
“The idea that somehow stripping or any sort of sex-related work is exploitative to women—I don’t see how it’s any more exploitative than any other labor,” she said. “[Men] are giving me a fair exchange for services in an environment where I have the support and the choice to share that with them. In public, if a man wants to ogle me, I receive no benefit from that transaction. In the club, he pays for that right that I have explicitly given him. I have found it to be very empowering.”
My eyeliner is so good today can’t even tell I’ve been kind of dead for 3 days
reclaiming a slur means you reclaim it for yourself
it doesnt mean you can use it against other people in your community in the exact same way its been used against us by bigots
