Today my boyfriend bought a label maker
"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….
First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.
In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.
In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”" - Libby Anne (via awelltraveledwoman)

You don’t need to buy me expensive things or take me out to dinner every night or even every weekend. I don’t need the world or want the world. I want the little things. If you push my hair out of face or rub my back. Or if you randomly kiss my cheek. Or text me randomly saying you miss me. Or if you make a tweet about me or post a picture of us. Then that’s all I care about. I want the little things. I care way more about that, than anything else.
BOYS TO AVOID:

-boys that call girls sluts and whores
-boys that think a vagina gets loose after having a lot of sex
-white boys that use the n word
Let’s get you educated a little shall we ? This is what Wonder Woman’s costume looks like in the current comic :
(yeah I know, badass right ?)
And this is the costume she will wear in Batman V Superman : Dawn of Justice :
I honestly don’t see what you guys see wrong in this costume, they stook to the canon ! Diana doesn’t normally wear pants so why should she in the movie ? Plus from what Zack Snyder (the director of the movie) said, they try to make it as close as to what the Greeks used to wear in battle.
This is what ancient greek armors used to look like :
You can clearly see that Diana’s costume is heavily inspired by what the Greeks used to wear during the times of war and hey, if they could won countless wars wearing this, I don’t think it would be a problem for an Amazon princess who possesses all the powers of the Greek Gods themselves.
So this is why she is not wearing pants because let’s just remember that in the movie, Diana just comes from Themyscira to Metropolis. The pants costume is a more modern version of her outfit which wouldn’t really makes sense that she wears them in her first cinematic appearence. Remember that this is more Diana than Wonder Woman.
Stop saying that Warner Brothers (and not DC because DC is the comic book company and Warner Brothers is the studio making the movies with the DC characters) “sexualized” Diana’s costume because if you think this costume is too sexy, you’re the one who has a problem.
Now I’ll talk about what seems to shock the most the fans : her shoes
Yes these are thigh high wedge heeled boots but hey, it’s not like Wonder Woman can’t fight in those, it’s Wonder freaking Woman.
And you know, s’not like she can’t fly FYI.
I think I covered every problem people seem to have with this costume but just so you know SHE’S A SUPERHEROINE, A FICTIONAL SUPERHEROINE, YOU CAN’T ALWAYS APPLY LOGIC TO FICTIONAL CHARACTERS AND THEIR COSTUME CHOICE, IT WORKS IN THE COMIC BOOK PAGES BUT NOT ALWAYS IN THE BIG SCREEN.
This is what my husband and I purchased at the grocery store the other day.
We don’t have kids.
We are adults. We pay bills.

Petition to ban old men from writing books just because they don’t know how to use an iPhone
Petition to have the youth in this country to actually educate themselves instead of spitting out some bullshit they read on some shitty post on facebook that’s untrue, and continues to spread like wildfire.
In 2012, young adults set the record of completing both high school and college and are on course to become the most educated generation in American history. Maybe you should follow the example of ‘the youth in this country’ and do the same.
