Tormuse

This blog is a mix of feminism and social justice issues and stuff that I just find cute and funny. :) I like animals, art, science, and nerdy things and any combinations thereof.

I tend to be shy and insecure and I'm prone to depression and anxiety, so I try to keep my blog to happy subjects whenever possible to keep from upsetting myself or otherwise keep my mood from spiralling down.

I am a white, heterosexual, able-bodied cis-male living in Toronto, Canada. I believe it's important for me to maintain an awareness of the privilege that these traits offer me and I invite anyone to call me out if I ever say or do anything problematic, because I want to help people whenever possible and would never want to make things worse, even inadvertently.

i love the Women Against Feminism that are like “I dont need feminism because i can admit i need my husband to open a jar for me and thats ok!” cause listen 1. get a towel 2. get the towel damp 3. put it on the lid and twist. BAM now men are completely useless. you, too, can open a jar. time to get a divorce

I feel like men should be offended by those women who basically validate their anti-feminism by saying that men are useful because of their ability to open tight jars and fix cars and shit.

Also…

imageMen, apparently completely replaceable for only $16.95

ESPN Films and ESPN W | Nine for IX “Branded” | for saveitlikesolo

I think without question women who aspire to be athletes, who want to play sports, are better off today than they were thirty years ago. I think it really encouraged young girls to go out there and aspire to their dreams and try to reach their goals. 

But despite Title IX, women have really gained very little at the professional sports level over time. 

It’s a cultural issue. It’s not just a women in sport issue. As a culture we have to look at all of the messages we send out on a daily basis about what we think is important. I think we’ve made a lot of progress. But I think we have a lot of progress to make.

These are from a wonderful book called The Art Of Comforting. Check it out and learn how to be better at supporting people going through difficult things.

Technically, since he didn’t acknowledge that he’s a voice actor, he didn’t break the 4th wall.  He just…

bent it.
