If he’s still in love with me. Because… I’m still in love with him. I am. I’ve been in love with him since I was 23 years old. He’s everything to me. He’s my life. I feel complete when I’m with him. I feel empty when we’re apart. He’s the father of my children and he’s my soulmate.
My husband is 100% responsible for this idea; I just did the Photoshopping.
Just a reference sheet for my followers. Seen a lot of people throwing around ‘Feminism’ as encompassing the ideals of all the movements, when that is in fact not the case. Modern feminism =/= Civil Rights feminism =/= Suffrage feminism.
3rd wave feminism makes me cry openly at night
2nd and 3rd wave make me cry at night.
There is no wage gap, and there is no patriarchy.
A good read on this type of stuff if Freedom Feminism, by Christina Hoff Sommers. It’s a nice reminder that feminism was once about much more than abortion rights (a topic Sommers does not discuss at all, since the states that debate on these topics is the sign of a free and open society).
To be truthful, the writings of the early feminists aren’t that far off from what you would hear in the second and third waves. Yes, they were technically pro-life, but they also fought to keep women who followed through with infanticide from going to jail. Unwanted pregnancy was seen as a “crime” against the woman and the child and the woman was not responsible for anything that happened afterwards. The idea that women are not responsible for anything that they do is unfortunately the one thing that has remained steady throughout all waves of feminism, and many conservatives still believe in it, too. I think our society is much the worse for it, and it’s not going to stop anytime soon. One could argue that real feminism involves equal right and responsibilities and that women are just as capable of being wretched human beings as men are. But no one is much interested in acknowledging that.
I’ve figured it out. Daenerys doesn’t have enough Pokémon badges to control her dragons.
