WHY IS THIS SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND

So for all you feminists out their who think that all men should die, remember, you are not a feminist.

reblogging for the last comment

Yes

Legit question, I’m not trying to hate on feminists or anything. Why is it called feminist if they’re for equality?

That’s a very good question and thank you for asking so politely. 

The word feminism was coined by Charles Fourier in 1837, a French philosopher who advocated for the emancipation of women because he believed society treated women as slaves. We weren’t allowed to vote, own anything, or work a real job. Women were ruled by their fathers/household patriarch until they married at which time they’d be under the rule of their husband. If a woman did not belong to male household she was shunned by society and had very little means to make money, most of them unsavory. You know the idiom “rule of thumb”? That comes from a running joke that started in the 1600s, and was still around in Fourier’s time, that said it was okay for a man to beat a woman with a stick as long as it wasn’t any thicker than his thumb. 

The point of the word feminist, and the feminist movement, has never been to say that women are better than men. The point is that women and things associated with women have been given a lesser place in society and we want to bring those things up to a place of equality. The focus is on the feminine because that’s what’s being pushed down. However, focusing on the feminine does not mean we’re focusing only women. Men are belittled and called “less of a man” anytime they portray a trait that is associated with femininity. If women and the feminine were equal to men and masculinity then that wouldn’t happen. Feminism is about raising up things associated with females to have an equal place in society as the things associated with males. It’s called feminism, not equalism, because the focus is on raising up not tearing down. Equalism would suggest that male things need to come down to a lower level so that female things can meet it in the middle. That’s not the point. The point is to raise up the feminine so that it’s on the same playing field that the masculine is already on. We don’t want men to lower themselves, we just want them to make room for us.

This needs to be spread far and wide to everyone on tumblr.

Liebe BILD-Redaktion,


ich könnte es mir natürlich leicht machen und Euch im Gegenzug fragen, ob ich Euch “Arschlöcher” nennen darf? Aber ich will mir mal die Mühe machen und Euch erklären, was an Eurer Schlagzeile falsch und schlecht ist: 
“Mongo” ist ein beleidigendes Schimpfwort, mit dem keiner belegt werden möchte: Weder Menschen mit Down-Symptom noch andere Menschen! Warum also eine Pseudo-Frage, die doch nichts anderes tut, als an den abwertenden und diskriminierenden Begriff “Mongolismus” anzuknüpfen? Warum für ein diskriminierendes Schimpfwort indirekt Reklame machen? Warum den sprachlichen und inhaltlichen Zusammenhang in den Köpfen der Leser verfestigen (neudeutsch “Framing”)?


Und kommt mir nicht damit, dass Ihr am Tag des Down-Syndroms “aufklären” wolltet. Mit tabubrechenden Überschriften Klicks machen, das war Eure Absicht. Mit Aufklärung hat das Ganze nichts zu tun.


In der Logik von “BILD fragt Fragen, die sich keiner zu stellen traut” müsste es dann nämlich so weitergehen: “Herr Farbiger, darf man Sie Nigger nennen? Herr Rollstuhlfahrer, darf man Sie Krüppel nennen? Herr Isreali, darf man Sie Drecksjude nennen?”


Dass das keine gute Idee ist, merkt Ihr selbst, oder? Derartige “Fragen” werden nämlich aus gutem Grund nicht gestellt (hat was mit Kinderstube, Herzensbildung und Anstand zu tun) und nicht, weil “sich sonst keiner traut”, wie Ihr vorgebt.


Viele Grüße

The Six Types of Middle-Earth Names

lotrfansaredorcs:

1. Characters whose Names are Secretly Insults: 

image

Samwise: means “Half-wise” or “Half-wit.” He is Stupid Gamgee

Faramir: Boromir’s name means “steadfast jewel”, but Faramir’s name just means “sufficient jewel.”

Sufficient.

Denethor took one look at baby Faramir and thought “eh I guess he exists or whatever” which is very in character

 2. Characters who Have Way Too Many Names

image

Examples include Aragorn son of Arathorn son of Arador heir of Isildur Elendil’s son, descendant of Numenor,  Thorongill,  Eagle of the Star,  Dúnadan, Strider,  Wingfoot, Longshanks, Elessar, Edhelharn, Elfstone, Estel, Hope, The Chieftain of the Dúnedain, King of the West, High King of Gondor and Arnor, and Envinyatar the Renewer of the House of Telcontar

Wait I’m sorry did I say “examples” plural

Cuz that was all one guy

3. Characters whose parents must’ve been prophets

image

-Frodo means “wise by experience.” His story is about becoming wise by experience
-A lady named Elwing turns into a bird (geddit)

4. Characters whose families were so lazy that they copy-pasted the same first half of a name onto multiple people

image

Théoden/Théodred 
Aragorn/Arathorn/Arador 
Éomer/ Éomund/Éowyn/Éorl
Elladan/Elrohir/Elrond/Elros/Elwing/Elenwë/Elendil/Eldarion (the laziest family) 

5.Characters whose Names are Expertly Designed so that Newbies can’t Remember Who is Who and Feel Sad

image

All the people mentioned in number 4
Celeborn, Celegorm, Celebrimbor, Celebrian
All the rhyming dwarf names in the Hobbit
Sauron and Saruman
Arwen and Éowyn

6. Name so nice, you say it twice

image

Legoas Greenleaf: Legolas’s first name means “Greenleaf” in elvish. Legolas is Greenleaf Greenleaf (thranduil really likes green leaves ok)

King Théoden’s name means King in Rohirric. Tolkien decided to name his name his king “King.” All hail King King



 this is what the fanbase means when we say tolkien was a creative genius with language

Especially when during one of those golf weekends, he hosted a costume party, the theme of which was literally Versailles. This is the kind of shit that if you put it in a novel, your editor would say it was a bit too on the nose.
