my fall look today is winged eyeliner, plum lipstick, and a look on my face like i’m fucking your boyfriend and can’t wait for you to find out.

my fall look today is a product of the patriarchy, a product of the patriarchy, and a desire for other women to view me as their competition for male attention

  • literally everything is a product of the patriarchy. if the post read “my fall look today is clean skin make-up free because thats how i’m most beautiful” that would literally be catering to the liberal-guy bullshit idea that “”“natural women”“” makes them inherently more “clean”/”pure” or special and “not like other girls.”
  • if we’re talking specific products you can buy in stores, guess what else is a product of the (white-supremacist capitalist) patriarchy? Deodorant, all hair removal products, most hair products in general. If the OP said “today my fall look includes deodorant because it is actually really hot and i’m sweating” would you have commented that products sold to make it seem as though woman have no natural body oder is a “product of the patriarchy”???? i’m guessing not. 
  • surveys of men all over the internet show that they are actually actively annoyed when girls wear winged eyeliner and plum lipstick, going so far as to actually mock out-loud the women who do so. [x] [x] [x] and those are only the first few i found on google.
  • it is incredibly hurtful and harmful when women combat themselves against other women for the male gaze or heterosexual attention/affection. full stop. 
  • it ALSO is incredibly harmful to take a holier-than-thou stance when calling a woman out on internalized misogyny. i DO think that responses like these do more harm than good because they take away inherent agency from the woman involved, and make it seem as though she’s foolish and dumb for not “”understanding”” the harmful things she is saying. the ideas she’s perpetuating with her last statement are as harmful to her as they are to every woman she’s positioning herself in from. even if she benefits from bashing another woman now, her contribution to this culture will no doubt return to her later down the line, as more women treat each other this way. 
  • with this in mind, why call her out in a public forum that only breeds more public ridicule and hate? and in a sarcastic, demeaning way no less, trivializing the very real and harmful consequences of the patriarchy and internalized misogyny. in situations of internalized hatred it’s best to talk to someone on-on-one because the speaker is as much of a victim as those they happen to be attacking. 

tl;dr: this entire exchange is ridiculous and i am disappointed.

I can’t even. Who would ever even think you don’t look cute in ANYTHING and DARE to say it!!! Don’t they feel the power of the ocean inside of you, the power to kill them with just a look!!!!! Literally just dumb and uninspired and sad. A sad life :(

THIS WAS A CHILDRENS MOVIE

A CHILDRENS BIBLE MOVIE

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Amen

FUN FACT: in hebrew, “feet” is a euphemism for genitals.

so if you ever see “washing feet” in the bible, it, uh. yeah.

(source is my old bible class textbook which i don’t have on me anymore :( )

HOLY SHIT WHAT

I MEAN CORRECT ME IF IM WRONG BUT I SWEAR TO GOD I REMEMBER READING A STORY IN THE BIBLE WHERE JESUS CLEANED THE ‘FEET’ OF A LADY PROSTITUTE INFRONT OF HIS TWELVE DISCIPLES WHO GOT SERIOUSLY GROSSED OUT. THEM GETTING REALLY SUPER GROSSED OUT BY THAT NEVER MADE SENSE TO ME UNTIL NOW.

JESUS CHRIST JESUS.

YOU NASTY.

this is one of the most embarrassing threads i’ve ever seen on tumblr, i had to delete a bunch of comments that were so ridiculous. first of all, ‘feet’ may be a euphemism for genitalia, but that in no way shape or form means that every time the word feet appears in the bible, it means genitalia. Literally what. The act of washing one’s feet (aka the part of the body that are often times most dirty, sore, and aching) is an act of respect and sign of being humbled and thankful. It pre-dates jesus, in addition to being something done to jesus by those thankful to him, was something jesus did much to the shock and disgust by not only his disciples, but by those used to hierarchies in which women, the homeless, impoverished people, etc were thought of as sub-human and therefore not worthy of respect.

anyways yeah, please let’s all try to stop just spreading around harmful and incorrect interpretations of literature that so many terrible people already work to de-contextualize and use as a source of pain for so many.

tomorrow i am going to the eye doctor for the first time in three years because i need a new prescription and i’m pretty sure it means i’ll have to deal with that terrible man who made me feel bad about myself while i try on glasses and i am NOT happy about it!!! last time he literally would not allow me to buy a pair of glasses because he said my cheeks were “”“too chubby for them to look good”“”. I had to literally FORCE him to let me buy the ones i have meanwhile who in the world has ever seen me and not thought I looked like the cutest person in the world in these glasses????????????? these glasses literally make me look so cute?????????????????????????????? anYWAYS. please pray for me and send me goodness tomorrow because i’m going to be way more assertive than i feel like i have any semblance of strength to be, and direct all my energy to not burst out in tears if he says anything mean to me. 

i think if he tries anything I will say channel beyonce and say “while i understand your concern, i am a grown woman and i can decide what glasses I would like, thank you.”

ugh :( :( i won’t even have my mom there to help me!!!!!!!!!! sigh.
