Driving through the rain while listening to that one perfect song that you’ve been in the mood for all day. It makes all the difference to your day.
Raise your hand if you’ve joined a fandom because you saw it on Tumblr.
Raise your hand if you’ve completely avoided things because of the fandom you saw on tumblr
Raise your hand if you know enough about a fandom to be in it because of tumblr, but haven’t actually watched the show/read the book/etc.
me doing any chore

How to actually make animals move
I’m not going to pretend to like Lily Allen because she came out as anti-feminist.
I didnt even know who she was until she came out as such. Also, didnt she write that fucked up song “Hard Out Here” that anti-feminists hate but feminists loved her for?
Now its different because she is against feminism. No, fuck that. I dont like her, I might never like her. I could not care if she became the face of anti-feminism, i still will not pretend to like her.
I love how we want to be happy equals yet we keep hating because of different views. Quite totalitarian don’t you think?
So apparently Lily Allen is going up against feminism because she doesn’t see the need for it and that men aren’t the enemy, women are. Disagree or agree all you want but what I find interesting is how the tumblr feminists are reacting with such hate towards her for having a different opinion.
Most feminists argue that feminism is an attempt to equalize the gender differences for both men and women. In 2014 where we aim to be accepting it only makes sense for both genders to be accepted as equal yet for some reason if you have a different opinion you are shot down. How is it that we all want to be happy and equal yet once someone disagrees with us, they become a horrible person?
I’m a cis white male in Canada and you can argue that because I’m part of the (apparent) privileged majority, my voice shouldn’t be heard. Also interesting enough, even as a cis white male, j don’t quite fit in with my own category and have had a multitude of problems throughout my life regardless of my categorization. Same goes for Lily Allen, just because she has view that isn’t of the “right view” what grounds devalue her opinion at all? There are none!
How can we find ourselves to be equal if all we do is create more categories to draw distinctions from and then hate those categories for being different?
How can equality ever come from hate if all we do is shut down people for being different? Isn’t that what causes sexism and racism to begin with?
Can’t you like understand that Lily Allen meant that its 2014 and it’s absurd feminism still needs to exist, not that it’s stupid and useless. She is promoting gender equality. GOD
Too fucking good… a must watch omg
