Nevermore's Things

Need to change this, clearly. Miscellany. Knitting, fandom fun (Supernatural, Avengers, Night Vale, whatever else appeals) and feminism.

Saving Face (2012), acid attacks on women in Pakistan

Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.

You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.

As a South Asian American feminist, let me remind everyone that oppression is not a competition.

Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.

My heart goes out to this woman and the hundreds of other victims like her. I want to educate people about these kinds of incidents. I support organizations that help women like this.

You may think that dress code issues are trivial, but they are related to a larger issue of women’s bodily autonomy, which affects women’s health and safety.

So please, let’s try to bring awareness and bring about change instead of insulting entire groups of people because they are facing issues that are less scary than the one presented.

oppression is not a competition

thank you so much for this wording

This… 1000 times this.

Agreed.

Gaming is about having fun and it gets better with the more people you share it with. Phenomenal advise.

Actually helpful commentary instead of the childish shit-stirring, or bandwagon hopping prevalent from the “pros” and “experts” in the gaming community.

Kamala Khan + Positive experiences about her culture/religion

This is so important, in my opinion. Because it’d be very easy for Marvel to have a Muslim character rebelling against a traditionalist culture and just putting it as retrograde or closed off… but instead we see Kamala slowly learning the balance between who she wants to be and what she believes in… and we get to see how her believes have shaped her into the hero she now is.

I’d been sold on this series since Issue 1, but that last sequence there just blew me away. It’d have been so easy for Marvel to have made it “common authority figures BAD”, and instead gave everyone human voices. 

This this this.
