If God is male, then male is God.

Hey there, kickass intersectional feminists! This art is now available as a signed print here at my Etsy shop. Please spread the word!
’Slut’ is attacking women for their right to say yes. ‘Friend Zone’ is attacking women for their right to say no.And “bitch” is attacking women for their right to call you on it.
Why is the term “friend zone” so popular when the term “unrequited love” already exists and is more accurate? I suspect it’s because it shifts the locus of responsibility. “Unrequited love” focuses on the person who has the crush. The feelings being discussed are the crushing person’s, thus the responsibility in on them to get over their crush and move on. “Friend zone”, on the other hand, focuses on the crush object’s choices. The phrase erases the agency of the crushing person. All blame for their pain is put on the crush object. “Unrequited love” is something that can happen to both sexes, but “friend zone” is a sexist concept that implies that women are solely responsible for men’s happiness, and not men themselves.Amanda Marcotte’s post on Feminism | Latest updates on Sulia (via veruca-assault)
A feminist is any woman who tells the truth about her life.Virginia Woolf (via theresthebeef)
The terms masculine and feminine are used symmetrically only as a matter of form, as on legal papers. In actuality the relation of the two sexes is not quite like that of two electrical poles, for man represents both the positive and the neutral, as is indicated by the common use of man to designate human beings in general; whereas woman represents only the negative, defined by limiting criteria, without reciprocity…. [I]t is understood that the fact of being a man is no peculiarity. A man is in the right in being a man.
Simone de Beauvoir, introduction to The Second Sex (tr. H. M. Parshley)
Femininity is depicted as weakness, the sapping of strength, yet masculinity is so fragile that apparently even the slightest brush with the feminine destroys it.
and the whole gang!! i’ll be making a couple more as custom requests, but these will be the stock for the shop i think!! they will all be in circular format on the pendants (like the top image), but the colour schemes and additional graphics will be the same!
there will be a very limited number of these available, so if you would like to buy one be sure to keep your eye out for the announcement post!
I think the main difference between a hero and a heroine in traditional narratives is that a hero’s strength is defined by how much he can win, while a heroine’s is defined by how much loss she can endure.
I think that’s kinda fucked up.
