The "It was all a dream" ending is as soul-crushing as it is for any fantasía story! What can one do to improve Lewis Carroll's ending? I thought. Alice doesn't DO much, the main focus is on her intellectual ability, and when she does do physical actions it's seen por other characters. Alice does appear to have a disability. I have Cerebral Palsy, and I spend time soñar despierto about doing stuff abled-bodied people can do and am very smart. The pomes being repeated that were based on real poems, and that means Alice is consciously integrating them into her dream like I do today with popular characters...

"I’ve been having an argument for days with this guy on imdb about promiscuous people not asking for rape (on the cape fear page) and he’s like dicho some pretty ridiculous sh*t…here are some examples:

“Looks like tu dig into a lot of feminist website to empower yourself.”

“Hence I don’t agree with the whole martial rape. The newest law in Afghanistan that obliges women to give their husbands sex at least 4 times a week. I would say that is a progressive law.”

“Understand this, rape will always exist in human society. It is a amargo, amargos frutas of evolution....

Now i'm what I would like to call an average guy. I also like to think that I'm open minded and willing to hear any argument as long as that argument is backed up with cold hard facts.
Now as a guy i personally don't have any experience of any of the issues normally expressed por the feminist movement so my thoughts and opinions are always formed from segundo hand o third hand experience (reading articles, watching YouTube videos etc.)
Now i'm sure some of tu are asking yourself why are tu asking this? Well the answer is as follows.
Two week hace i was taking part in a community discussion at...

1. MYTH: Legalizing prostitution gets rid of its criminal elements - pimps and traffickers.
FACT: Legalizing prostitution benefits pimps and traffickers. It also benefits johns.

2. MYTH: Men need sex therefore prostitution must exist. Prostitution is a natural form of human sexuality
FACT: The sex of prostitution is not “sex” for women in it. Most men who use women in prostitution have other sexual partners.

3. MYTH: Prostitution is sexual liberation
FACT: Prostitution is sexual exploitation.

4. MYTH Women choose to enter prostitution. It’s better to choose to make lots of money as a prostitute...

Look at all of the stereotypes that existed ever since the beginning of time! They're so toxic and so degrading!

Stereotype 1: Every woman needs a man (which is an issue in many high schools, even colleges and such).

Stereotype 2: All women need rescuing and constant protection.

Stereotype 3: A woman who stands up for herself is considered b*tchy, bossy, and unladylike.

Stereotype 4: A woman is supposed to be submissive and f*cking cowardly! (which is so common)

Stereotype 5: All women are less intellegent, más foolish, and can't learn anything.

Stereotype 6: Women are the weakest of the weak....

It stared with a simple premise; a woman playing Peter Pan; Girls amor that! Something different happened, during "Ugg-A-Wugg" I couldn't understand them, which was both shocking and intriguing. Fortunately as a person with Cerebral Palsy I knew just what to do. I Promised to Help the Cast if they needed it. 12 years later "Peter Pan Live!" Made changes to "Ugg-A-Wugg" and it caused me to feel A LOT of guilt, and self-hated, But NBC had upset the Native Americans who expressed themselves on #NotYourTigerLily and I stated tweeting there to. My tweets got into the parte superior, arriba Tweets my confidence grew....

Kurt Cobain- The Feminist

by Kat Broderick

link

The late Kurt Cobain was surprisingly, an avid member of the feminist community. Here are some of his enlaces to activism and his ties to the feminist agenda.

If generation X had a king it would be Kurt Cobain. His devil may care attitude arguably defined a generation of people. His haunting melodies and desperate screams spoke to youth disenchanted with societies’ expectations. He cared about a...

“THIS PICTURE WILL NOT CHANGE THE WORLD, BUT I STILL NEED FEMINISM AND I’M GOING TO REALLY, REALLY TELL tu WHY”:

-Because I got called a whore for wearing a short plaid falda when I was 10

-and because when Nujood Ali from Yemen was 10 she got divorced

-Because black girls’ names became my classmates’ favorito! “joke” when I was 11

“Wherever there is a human being, I see God-given rights inherent in that being, whatever may be the sex o complexion” -- William Lloyd Garrison

"Nothing can be más absurd than the practice that prevails in our country of men and women not following the same pursuits with all their strengths and with one mind, for thus, the state instead of being whole is reduced to half."
--Plato

"[A] woman should have every honorable motive to exertion which is enjoyed por man, to the full extent of her capacities and endowments. The case is too plain for argument. Nature has dado woman the same powers,...

'Feminazi' is the demonization of feminism via comparing the woman's rights movement to Adolf Hitler.

Needless to say, it is the most incompetent and insensitive terminology refering to:

A. The victims who suffered tremendously under Hitler's regime during WW2.
B. Feminism and how misunderstood it's many messages are today in modern society.

So even if tu aren't a feminist, o maybe even not even pro-feminist (which i can assure tu are completely different things), tu most definately shouldn't tolerate this fad. Here are four, quick, clear reasons simply to start tu off. I could go on for...

Chauvinism and Masculinism, two of the biggest anti-feminism "movements" alive and rampant in this día and age. Since the beginning of these movements, the Feminist image has been violated to the point that even hearing the word "Feminist" brings up some ugly descriptions in the human psyche: fat, unattractive, masculine women who can't find a decent husband that want to create misery for all like they feel por lying about what women really want (like bebés and husbands) and emasculating men, o a big system of corporate tools brainwashed por powerful liberals to decimate the human race,

Nicole Kidman: We Must Support Women
link

Nicole Kidman has been “brought to her knees” por tales of abuse from some women.

The actress is a UN Goodwill Ambassador who has done a lot of work with females. She is determined to do all she can to help victims of abuse.

“I’ve been to Haiti and Kosovo and to shelters all over the world. The things I’ve seen and the stories I’ve heard just bring me to my knees,” she told the February edition of UK magazine InStyle. “We are working to pass new laws and to make it OK for women to step adelante, hacia adelante and speak about abuses, knowing they will have...

If i have sex with someone I am a massive slut.
If he has sex with someone...He's awesome.

If i get raped i "deserve it" for dressing seductively.
If he gets raped he is a victim of assault.

If I do not want sex i am a uptight, harpy-bitch.
If he does not want sex he is simply doing his own thing.

If i ask for a raise I am being demanding and agressive.
If he asks for a raise he is being assertive and ambitious.

If i become a teen parent I am a stupid girl who got what was coming to her.
If he becomes a teen parent he is a poor, unlucky kid.

If i ask for a abortion I am a cruel,...

Not too long ago, I’ve been exploring the recesses of the Internet for some discussion based on Feminism-from websites dedicated to only the talk of Feminism to YouTube videos and their comments, knowing fully well that many of the things I will view will be made por anti-Feminists. My expectations were only half-disappointed. I did expect the usual “Feminists are the most sexist, misandrist, selfish manginas and lesbianas of the planet,” but I didn’t expect this: “black women shouldn’t have involved themselves in the white woman’s evil movement.”

Alright, listen up, men’s rights people. tu say tu want to improve the lives of all men, to protect their rights. Well, I have a challenge for you: Can tu stand up for the male individuals who act feminine?

It’s no secret that men who mostrar signs of anything associated with femininity are looked down upon. Effeminate men are made the butt of jokes all the time in the media and in real life. Just tonight I watched Date Night, where the male lead is described as androgynous and hilarity ensues as he is forced to agree with that. más than jokes, such men and boys are frequently the victims...

Here are some women empowerment frases that I like:

Women sleep on the right side of the cama because even while sleeping they have to be right! ~Author unknown

I'm an excellent housekeeper. Everytime I get a divorce, I keep the house. ~Zsa Zsa Gabor

In this world tu have to be stronger than a man, tu have to be a wo-man! ~AVPM

Anything men can do, women can do better, plus in heels.

Men, their rights, and nothing more; women, their rights, and nothing less. ~Susan B. Anthony

History is herstory, too. ~Author unknown

I'd much rather be a woman than a man. Women can cry, they can wear cute clothes, and they are the first to be rescued off of sinking ships.

Man has will, but woman has her way.

Women get the last word in every argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Women are scientifically proven to be right even when they are wrong.

A lot of tu have probably witnessed the video for Katy Perry's part of me in which she discovers her boyfriend cheating, does a Britney and joins the armed forces in a bid to get over her turmoil and shoot little afgano children in the face.

At first sights, this is a immaculate example of feminism in the works: A young, pretty girl finds the strength to defy her boyfriend's infidelities and find her own way in life without him. It's hard imagining Perry doing anything apart from mess around with wigs and giggle...

The following articulo does not belong to me. This articulo belongs to link. If tu enjoyed this articulo please fan the original link.



Preface:
I have read all libros and seen the movies.
Most importantly, the fact that it’s fantasía doesn’t excuse the themes and messages in the book. Fiction is merely a vehicle humans developed to communicate important lessons, values and philosophies. I am not claiming any of the implications I discuss were intentional on SMeyer’s part. Whether o not the autor o readers are aware of it, though, the Twilight series communicates dangerous messages...

There’s a meme I’ve seen online where feminists say that the word “females” shouldn’t be used because of its dehumanizing connotations. The idea is that “female” relates to the sex of a biological organism, and when one is using that kind of terminology they tend to be discussing nonhuman animales in a scientific fashion. So, when men talk about “females” when they mean “women”, it comes off as dehumanizing. While I agree to an extent, as I believe some men do use this to purposefully distance themselves from women, I also think this decree that female humans should be...
