kristen stewart & feminism
This has been Real Talk with KStew.
Lewis’s law is an observation she made in 2012 that states “the comments on any article about feminism justify feminism.” Lewis has written frequently about misogynist hate directed at women online.
so uh people who laugh at ‘tumblr feminists’ for seeing sexism everywhere
has it ever occurred to you that
sexism might actually be everywhere
and you just don’t see it because it seems normal to you?

Kittens for Feminism.
I’m going to print this on cards and pass them out to people instead of engaging in yet more fruitless explanations about what feminism is.
Damn you, Daily Mail!! *shakes fist*
Always reblog out of necessity. I find a lot of arguments against feminism could easily be summed up as “I don’t know what feminism is.”
An excellent, chilling, sickening piece by Rebecca Solnit on violence against women and its pervasiveness in our world.
“A woman is beaten every nine seconds in this country. Just to be clear: not nine minutes, but nine seconds. It’s the number-one cause of injury to American women; of the two million injured annually, more than half a million of those injuries require medical attention while about 145,000 require overnight hospitalizations, according to the Center for Disease Control, and you don’t want to know about the dentistry needed afterwards. Spouses are also the leading cause of death for pregnant women in the U.S.
“Women worldwide ages 15 through 44 are more likely to die or be maimed because of male violence than because of cancer, malaria, war and traffic accidents combined,” writes Nicholas D. Kristof, one of the few prominent figures to address the issue regularly.”
You don’t want to know about the dentistry needed afterwards.
“Ask your female friends, if you have any, if they’ve ever walked home late at night with a key pushed through their knuckles, just in case, if they’ve ever crossed the street to avoid a stranger, just in case, if they’ve ever taken the long way home because of the weird guy on the corner, just in case. Ask them if they’ve ever made up a boyfriend to get a guy to leave them alone, if they’ve ever gotten off a train car and moved to the next because you just never know, if they’ve ever shelled out for a cab because men like you were at the bus stop. Do you really want to be that guy?”
