just your everyday feminist

Here you will find feminism in its true state: normal people such as you and me who believe that women need to have the same rights and respect as men. Tag posts with "everydayfeminism" if you would like me to see them :)

Kristen Stewart Dropped from 'Snow White' Sequel Plans (Exclusive) ›

hannahorvath:

Okay, so Kristen Stewart cheats on her boyfriend, who she is not married to, not engaged to, has no real legal bond to, and her career suffers. This is not the first movie she has been rumored to be dropped from. (I think it might be the third) People have talked about how this might hurt Breaking Dawn. How people will harass her at premieres or public appearances. Pretty much, the cheating scandal has made her such a liability that it might be a really long time before producers are willing to cast her in anything.

Meanwhile, Chris Brown physically assaults his girlfriend. There are pictures of what he did to Rihanna. There is a detailed police report saying exactly what he did. And has his career suffered at all? His most recent albums have only gotten more and more popular, he won a Grammy, he was invited to perform at the Grammys, and he still has a huge fan base, mostly female, disturbingly enough.

Meanwhile, Charlie Sheen physically assaults his wife, again, with detailed police reports. He makes anti-Semetic remarks about his boss. He goes on a bender that is captured by every major news outlet. And it’s all a joke. He trademarks all the crazy shit he says and makes money off the merchandise. He not only gets a new TV show, but it is the highest rated show on FX.

A+ sexism there, Hollywood.

"The Upside of Ugly" by Jessica Valenti ›

So this girl who looked perfectly fine and beautiful received $40,000 worth of free plastic surgery because she was bullied, and so her mom sought out a charity to donate the surgery, fix her “deformities,” and boost her self-esteem.

Society, and especially parts of the Internet,loveto think of girls as vapid and superficial, but they never realize that it’s a product of society, and not some inherent flaw on our part. From a young age, we all see that the people who are prettier are just treated more favorably due to societal standards and maybe a little bit of biology. And so, in order to survive, we focus on being pretty.

The article also talks about how self-esteem shouldn’t necessarily be the end goal for girls. My favorite line was “So let’s teach girls to survive a misogynist culture with a fist, not a smile.” Definitely a good read!

Pregnant? Suspected Of Being Pregnant? You Just Got Kicked Out Of School ›

A Louisiana charter K-12 school has a policy that is riling the ACLU. If you’re pregnant or suspected of being pregnant — and refuse to take a pregnancy test — you’re automatically kicked out of school and forced into home study. The Delhi Charter School in Delhi, Louisiana, has a policy that’s clearly unconstitutional, and is garnering fast and furious attention across the country.

Of course, being pregnant is not illegal, and one certainly can assume this policy will lead to more abortions, but in the “abstinence-only” mindset of conservatives, that doesn’t enter into the equation.

The Delhi Charter School policy states:

If an administrator or teacher suspects a student is pregnant, a parent conference will be held. The school reserves the right to require any female student to take a pregnancy test to confirm whether or not the suspected student is in fact pregnant. The school further reserves the right to refer the suspected student to a physician of its choice. If the test indicates that the student is pregnant, the student will not be permitted to attend classes on the campus of Delhi Charter School.

However you feel about Anne, bravo to her for this take down.

Watch interviews with her and with ScarJo about their comic book films. Watch how they always get questions about their bodies and clothing and diets and blah blah blah fucking blah. Watch as the male cast members do not get the same treatment.

Because apparently all we care about when it comes to actresses are their bodies and not, ya know, their acting.
