Azula + Character Tropes (x)

  • katy perry: i am not a feminist
  • shailene woodley: i love men and i think the idea of ‘raise women to power, take the man away from the power’ is never going to work out
  • lana del rey: feminism is just not an interesting concept
  • lorde: *puts down many female artists, including selena gomez, britney spears, and amy winehouse, calling what they do “not feminism”*
  • taylor swift: i don’t think i’m a feminist, i don’t really think about things as guys versus girls and i never have
  • lady gaga: i am not a feminist, i hail men and i love men
  • marina diamandis: everybody thinks feminism is about hairy legged women who hate men but it’s not, it’s about equality
  • MARINA DIAMANDIS: i consider myself a feminist because i believe women should have equal rights- it’s just that the term feminism conjures up other things for people
  • MARINA FUCKING DIAMANDIS: i feel completely shocked when i hear that female artists don’t want to be considered feminists… maybe i’m being a little bit harsh and maybe people think of the term in a bad way but it just means women have equal rights

I want [female characters] to be allowed to be weak and strong and happy and sad – human, basically. The fallacy in Hollywood is that if you’re making a ‘feminist’ story, the woman kicks ass and wins. That’s not feminist, that’s macho. A movie about a weak, vulnerable woman can be feminist if it shows a real person that we can empathize with.

the eternal battle with internalized misogyny

rubyvroom:

here’s an example of how insidious this is:

If you were one of those young girls who was simultaneously told that she was smart and talented and loveable for being smart and talented but also told that men were smarter and more valuable than women, you might grow up rejecting anything even vaguely feminine because you didn’t want to be mistaken for weak/stupid/ girly, which you know are bad things.

So you might have a whole lot of tastes that you thought were intrinsic to your personality, like hating the color pink, that are really internalized misogyny. You might grow up and discover some girly stuff that is GREAT like Sailor Moon and realize that you don’t actually hate sparkles and flowers and pink after all, and wonder how different you might have been if you hadn’t been taught from an early age that being a girl was distasteful.

For instance.

oh look the realization i’ve been having for the past few years

mjwatson:

If you claim to be a feminist and you shame girls for wanting to do traditional things like take their husband’s last name or be a house wife then you are doing it all completely wrong.

Feminism isn’t an elite group who defeats gender norms, it’s a group who accepts ALL women’s choices.
