I’m curious. What are the, say, top 5 things you associate with me?
Can be a tumblr user, a book, movie, character, actor etc.
Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever been a stripper?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever been to a strip club.
Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever done porn?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever watched porn.
You’re the reason we exist.
You’re the demand to our supply.
If you disdain sex workers, don’t you dare consume our labor.
As they say in the industry, “People jack off with the left hand and point with the right.”"
No I fucking LOVE this.
It’s funny how I used to think that musicians were the ideal guys to date and I chased every cute boy with a guitar and now I’m just like NO THANKS.
'Cause like if you date a struggling musician who wants to make a career out of it, you're dating a preoccupied broke guy. If you date a semi-successful musician you're dating a guy who's always on tour, and still probably pretty broke. If you date a very successful musician, well, you're gonna get cheated on.
If you MUST date a musician, date a guy who plays piano at Disneyland.
Barbies aren’t bad for little girls.
Barbie isn’t a bad role model.
Barbie is a toy. She doesn’t have to be realistically proportioned. If “human” toys need to be realistically proportioned, explain these guys:
I played with Barbies. I think I turned out alright. I never looked at my Barbie dolls and wished my body looked like theirs. Why? Because I could comprehend that she’s a piece of plastic and not a representation of an actual human person. If there was anything of Barbie’s I envied, it was her pink Jeep and her Dream House, but those are obtainable things. If you work hard enough, you can live in a mansion in Malibu and get that pink Jeep. Barbie is beautiful and stylish, but homegirl works for it all. She has like 60 jobs. She’s a teacher, a veterinarian, a pizza hut employee and an astronaut. If anything she’s a goddamn positive role model for girls because she tells girls that you can, in fact, be beautiful AND smart.
But if you want to know what Barbie really did for me, you should know that she helped foster my creativity for years. Her tiny frame was the perfect mannequin for my amateur fashion designs and she was probably the reason why my dream growing up was to be a designer (up until a few years ago, when I sorta lost passion for it. Maybe I should have never stopped playing with Barbies?). I can’t tell you how many hours I spent on my bedroom floor living in Barbie dream land. The thing about fashion dolls is that they require a lot of imagination. They aren’t interactive, battery powered things. The fun that happens with them all depends on the person playing with them. I think that’s awesome. I wish more kids played with Barbie dolls. I wish more parents encouraged their children to live in Barbie dream land.
I know I wouldn’t be the same without Barbie.
ok so all these guys who are like “men have it hard too!!! we’re expected to be manly and emotionless, we have feelings!!!” do realize that it’s other men who enforce those standards on guys. literally guys created those standards to be more powerful than women. so maybe instead of getting angry at girls for talking about their oppression, realize that you should be fighting with girls against unfair gender expectations and inequality
