you know what I just realised…
Why is the men’s section of topshop called topman? Was there something so offensive about the word ‘shop’ that required them to rebrand the men’s section? I don’t understand…
I live in London now…why have I still not met Rupert Grint!?
The oppression of Muslim women does NOT lie within the religion or the culture. It lies within patriarchy and its an issue of men oppressing women. Men are the perpetrators of the oppression of women in the middle east, not religion.
#western misogyny is framed as a problem of men whereas eastern misogyny is framed as a problem of culture#double standards (via jurhfalastini)
Both forms of patriarchy are based in religious doctrine, whether that is Christianity, Judaism or Islam. I mean, these are the oldest texts we know of and all of them are driving by men and all of them describe the suppression of women. The misogyny in the west is a direct follow on from those countries being religiously christian.
I find the whole concept of being ‘sexy’ embarrassing and confusing. If I do a photo-shoot, people desperately want to change me - dye my hair blonder, pluck my eyebrows, give me a fringe. Then there’s the choice of clothes. I know everyone wants a picture of me in a mini-skirt. But that’s not me.
I need that lip colour
This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.
Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.
I fucking cried my eyes out during this scene
AJ even confirmed that this is what this scene was a metaphor for (x) - just because i saw someone say today that this is not what this scene is about
'We were very conscious that it was a metaphor for rape': The actress explained how the scene in which her character has her wings ripped off her body while in a drug-induced sleep had to be something 'so violent and aggressive' that it would make her 'lose all sense of her maternity, her womanhood and her softness'
when a man violates a woman, he cuts off her wings.
I had no idea this was a metaphor! Wow. So powerful. I was bawling during this scene!
