Q I think miss Watson is trying to use her privileged position in a positive way for something she believes in, which I think is actually something she should be congratulated on, I don't think at any point she comes off as thinking she knows most about the subject or is best suited to the role, and actually asks 'why' she is there, maybe it is not her fault she was picked but the heforshe org ? but she's using her high profile position to speak out about something that's actually important (septvms)
A

ibt-w:

Some people have been reblogging my post saying similar things, and all seem to have the impression that I was/am criticising Emma Watson. This kind of isn’t about her. I quite like her. It’s a little bit bigger than that. The idea that feminism need be popularised, de-fanged, cleaned-up so as to feel non-threatening and appealing to both men and the women who wish to appease them, is the issue.

If Emma Watson wants to use her high profile to champion a cause she feels strongly about, that’s swell. But she spoke at the U.N.. She Spoke at the U.N. about feminism, and her speech completely depoliticised feminism. Feminism is a political movement, it’s not just a word that can be attached to anything or anyone that looks as if it/they might care to end sexism. The purpose of Emma Watson’s speech, of Emma Watson being invited to deliver it, was to give feminism a make-over with words like “fighting for women’s rights has too often become synonymous with man-hating. If there is one thing I know for certain, it is that this has to stop,” and, “We don’t want to talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that they are. When they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence.” Her brand of feminism, the popular kind, is not feminism at all because it is male-focused, image-conscious, weak and ultimately meaningless for women. And don’t forget that “man-hating” is code for “lesbian”, so she might as well have said, “Don’t worry, feminists are still fuckable!” ‘Feminism’ that distances itself from lesbians or any ‘threatening’ or otherwise unappealing women in order to appease men is not feminism. It’s complete rubbish.

Emma Watson was the one who was given the opportunity to address the U.N. on the subject of feminism, which she clearly knows little about. My concern is over the fact that there are women who could have spoken in her place and delivered a galvanising speech that made every man uncomfortable, that made women everywhere stop and think, that made everyone open their eyes a little, that made every leader in the room squirm in their seat. Feminism is not supposed to be popular or easy for men to embrace because it is by nature challenging to men. That’s what makes it a political movement. If you strip a political movement of its politics, it becomes nothing. And ‘nothing’ is not going to end misogyny.

tl;dr: An important question to ask is this, I think: why is it important that high profile women, rather than feminist writers or activists, speak about feminism? I think the answer, for some, is that their doing so makes feminism popular and easier to digest, which they view as a positive thing. The second question we should ask ourselves, then, is this: why does feminism need to be popular and digestible, and what are the consequences of this for feminism as a political movement?

I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

You can also read a more detailed explanation of what’s going down here and watch a live feed here.

weareparamoreforever:


So your father told you once That you were his princess But you won't see the castle You cannot find your prince But now you've grown a lot And your dress don't fit right Your daddy's not a hero He stole your chariot So here you are in pieces Trying to prove to us it's real The softness of your smile And the lies you want to feel And the scales beneath your skin Are showing off today There's evil in your heart And it wants out to play There's evil in your heart And it wants out to play There's evil in your heart And I made a home here for me You'll burn it down with your fantasies and I made a home here for me You'll burn it down with your fantasies

(Soon to be) For Sale

deshaunicus:

Anyone interested in a Nikon D610, completely unused, brand new? I’m asking retail price ($1800), but you’d be saving on the sales tax. I’d prefer to sell within NYC but I’ll ship if you pay the shipping.
