Beethoven: ARE YOU READY TO HEAR SOME SYMPHONIES?!
Beethoven: I CAN'T HEAR YOU!!
“I also thank Angelina for dressing in hijab while she visited not just Iraqi refugees but refugees in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Not only did she look good in it, she showed respect and appreciation for their culture and religion and made sure that the focus was not on her looks but rather her mission.”
This photo carries so much emotion
HP Goblet of Fire Headcanon: Beauxbatons was primarily a Muslim wizarding school.
(and yes I know the horses drink whisky, which is not exactly halal, sshhh)
Its was french. It s
Was so clearly french.
Literally French. …….
Because French Muslims do not exist and no Muslims ever speak French and Muslim schools don’t exist in France and if they do they must be really shitty and there are no key Muslim educators in France at all and there’s never been any history of Islamic culture and politics in the Pottermore-confirmed Pyreenes, nooooooo, it is très impossible! Astagfirrulah!
learn some fuckin’ social studies and history and current affairs, people.
Multiple countries around North Africa as well as parts of West Asia have French as a first or second language?!
I am curious why you think men ain't shit?
Walking Disaster. Answer:
Idk could be something to do with the sexual harassment I experience daily. The dehumanization that comes from the people supporting my labour. The fact men are the #1 threat to women but we are still questioned what we were wearing and if we deserve the assault/harassment. Idk tho.
Yea, so let’s generalize all men are the problem. Psh.
It’s not about generalization or that not all men do this or that - it’s what every single woman experiences these things. Statistically men are the #1 risk to women because when it happens everyday - generalizing ALL men is a method of survival. Not a fucking attack on your feelings.
Generalizing all men is not survival. That’s a cop out because you cant formulate an actual statistic on the type of man who is guilty of those things.
It is survival. Every male is a potential threat because women are guaranteed to be attacked by a man in their lifetime. You are clearly too dense to understand that.
Although that may be true, you act like there aren’t a million ways to protect yourselves. I know women who can protect themselves better than most men can.
No. Protecting yourself against someone intending to hurt someone is like saying ‘don’t hurt me, hurt the next girl’. Someone who is aiming to do damage WILL do damage. How about ending rape culture and misogyny? You fucktwit.
by that logic, every women is a potential child molester, fuck it, we’re all potential murderers so lets all try and confine each other to prison.
not every man thinks like a fucking animal, not every man takes no as yes, not every man wants to force his way upon someone, doing that kinda fucked up shit has never crossed my mind, i would take a bullet for any of my female friends because to me theyre like my little sisters and im sick of being constantly tared with the same brush.
and these arent the thoughts of “every women” my mum plus countless other women i know understand it takes a fucked up kinda person to rape someone, some who cant control their selfish desires and were never smacked as a kid and told no, and they carry on with their lives as normal and dont assume every bloke they meet wants to be inside them.
ive also had friends on the other side of the coin who have been a victim to rape and dont even do this, friends that ive seen been put through hell, some that the law let down and even they acknowledge a genuinely good guy when they see one.
i totally agree with what you girls are saying but the term “every man is a potential rapist” is just as degrading as “any girl who earns money with her clothes off is a slag”
its not true but dont it suck to hear.
IT IS NOT ABOUT ‘NOT EVERY MAN’ IT IS ABOUT ‘YES EVERY WOMAN’. NOT EVERY CHILD WILL BE MOLESTED NOR NOT EVERY MAN WILL BE ASSAULTED BUT YES EVERY WOMAN WILL EXPERIENCE HARASSMENT, ASSAULT, RAPE, OR OTHERWISE ALL DONE BY A MAN. HOLY FUCK.
If you believe that every woman has experienced assault and rape, and that it’s all been perpetrated by men, then you need to have your head examined. Most women have experienced harassment, I’ll give you that. But the rest of your claim is just an outright lie. Where do you get this nonsense? Are you even thinking? “Every man is a potential rapist”? This thought process is absurd and regressive. All it does is spread fear and hostility throughout our culture. What you’re doing is twisting things up and distorting the reality of the situation. If you’ve been raped, molested, or assaulted by a man, then go to a therapist and work through your pain and grief. Come out the other side of that, and lay down your burden. Don’t get stuck in the trap of hate and resentment. All you’re doing is closing yourself off and making it easier to abandon hope…hope in humanity, hope in love, hope for friendship. It’s completely unhealthy to think that way. You’re living in fear and paranoia and you likely don’t even realize it. Seek professional help.
Oh man. We get blamed for not protecting ourselves enough bla bla bla dress like this, have a weapon, wear anti date-rape nail polish - but when we take the initiative or explain our reasoning behind our protective mindsets we are attacked by men because we hurt your crybaby feelings. Goodbye fuckboy.
there’s a wonderful little quote i’ve seen going around on tumblr that i can’t find (so if someone else can credit it please do) but it goes something like this: if i were to hand you a bowl of M&Ms and say 10% of them are poisoned. would you eat a handful?
100% of women will be harassed OR raped OR beaten OR killed by a man (please note the ‘or’). sure it’s not all men. it might only be 10% of men… but some women choose not to eat from the bowl of M&Ms - it’s a survival tactic. and before you worry so much about how your feelings are hurt by the fact that you are painted with the same brush as rapists and abusers, why don’t you worry more about the alarmingly high rate of crime done against women by men, for example, more women were killed by domestic violence, than american soldiers in the iraqi and afgahnistan wars during the same span of time.
but where’s your outrage at that? what’s the worse crime here? a woman being wary of men, or the violence done against women by some men? have a good think about that.
when people are bitten by a dog. we tend to understand why they might be wary around dogs. so why can’t you respect that some women are wary around men because they’ve been bitten, or they wanna avoid being bitten?
unfortunately for us women, rapists and abusers don’t come with horns and pointy tail. they come with a cute smile and dimples to die for. they come with beautiful eyes and nice personalities. the majority of them don’t jump out of the dark at us when we foolishly walked home alone at night. most of them are people we know and love. you tell us to defend ourselves in some way against rapists and abusers - but you only really give us ways to do that against the stranger that rapes us, and even then, that’s no guarantee that it won’t happen.
so what are we expected to do, when the majority (2/3) of rapists are just good guys that we know?
what do you propose we do then?
is there a self defense course i can do to defend myself against my husband?
is there nail polish that’ll tell me if my best male friend is a rapist?
please, please tell me what i’m supposed to do to avoid the bad guys, when they look exactly like what you claim to be - one of the good guys.
Hold up. Amazing: "We get blamed for not protecting ourselves enough bla bla bla dress like this, have a weapon, wear anti date-rape nail polish - but when we take the initiative or explain our reasoning behind our protective mindsets we are attacked by men because we hurt your crybaby feelings."
We don’t blame every single man on this planet, but we HAVE to generalize if we’re to protect ourselves. Every man might or mightn’t have the potential to be a rapist, but every woman will definitely be thrown a reason for it being their own fault if they get assaulted. Therapy is all fine and dandy, but i think, most of us, idk, don’t want to be raped first?
‘Cause people seem to only post the 20-something Audrey Hepburn.
Audrey Hepburn was the granddaughter of a baron, the daughter of a nazi sympathizer, spent her teens doing ballet to secretly raise money for the dutch resistance against the nazis, and spent her post-film career as a goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, winning the presidential medal of freedom for her efforts.
…and history remembers her as pretty.
AND HISTORY REMEMBERS HER AS PRETTY
this is the first time I have ever seen a picture of her older than 20 and I think that’s scary
trees like these are the best to sit under and read books or draw or just relax and be alone
or you can climb it and sit up in the foliage waiting for unsuspecting pedestrians to walk by so you can swing down on one of the roots with a Tarzan scream and kick them in the face before running from the traffic cops
two kinds of people.
