the problem with every video game i’ve tried to play recently is that, fundamentally, it’s not dragon age: inquisition, and i can’t really forgive that in a video game right now
Fashion is one of the very few forms of expression in which women have more freedom than men. And I don’t think it’s an accident that it’s typically seen as shallow, trivial, and vain. It is the height of irony that women are valued for our looks, encouraged to make ourselves beautiful and ornamental… and are then derided as shallow and vain for doing so. And it’s a subtle but definite form of sexism to take one of the few forms of expression where women have more freedom, and treat it as a form of expression that’s inherently superficial and trivial. Like it or not, fashion and style are primarily a women’s art form. And I think it gets treated as trivial because women get treated as trivial. What’s more, there’s an interestingly sexist assumption that often gets made about female fashion — namely, that it’s primarily intended to get male attention and male approval.Fashion is a Feminist Issue: Greta Christina (via bossapplesaucesmelly)
All I’m gonna say is that I am so f’ing glad I sold my 1D concert tickets. No, that’s a lie, I’m gonna say this too: Either this band has the most f’ed up, demeaning, morally bankrupt, homophobic, and misogynistic PR/management team I’ve ever seen, or its members are truly asshats who do not deserve my money or attention. I hope it’s the first one, but either way, my money and time are better spent elsewhere.
