Tattoos and Other Easy ways to Ruin Your Body
a whole article devoted to bashing women with tattoos, i want to kill someone
“Women, let me tell you something that your friends and many guys will not. Your tattoos are ugly. We do not like them. We respect you less for them. We think you’re a pawn without a sense of solidarity in a world that pressures you to conform. Even if we’re not conscious of this belief, we hold it. Men who gush about the sexiness of girls with tattoos do this because they are culturally trained to do so. There’s no such thing as a tasteful tattoo. That’s like claiming that you had a tasteful dinner-date at McDonalds. I love my fast-food but let’s not kid ourselves about what we’re doing here.”
”Because it’s where another man left his mark on you.”
”Because tattoos were primarily a symbol of prostitutes”
Holy fuck, this is by far the most aggravating blog post I’ve seen in a while.
Wow. Not only is this guy a blatant misogynist (he uses the sheep metaphor [how 8th grade]), but he’s also “backing up” his life “philosophy” with the Dostoevsky novel The Brothers Karamazov (one of my favorite novels [and nothing he is saying like even relates to the novel])- so this dude is just a straight up asshole with little to none reading comprehension.
“I want to make myself clear. I’m not just speaking about tramp stamps (aka Ass Antlers, Respect-Me-Nots, Fart Wings, etc.) and chest-pieces, the most obviously ugly and demeaning indicators of low social value that a woman can get.”
I think I’ve hit blinding rage at record fucking speed.
My value is not based on whether or not I’ve got a tattoo on my chest, my ass or even my face. It’s not based on something as arbitrary as a fucking tattoo or a piercing because women are more than bits of metal or ink. Asshole.
teenage girls are fucking mocked for liking things that are marketed towards them and for them then when theyre sick of being shit on for that and try to like things not specifically “for them” they get shit on for “pretending” and they cant win at all its a lose lose situation being a teenage girl
Irma (short film)
Irma Gonzalez is an old ‘luchadora’ (female wrestler) who bears the marks of a life spent battling in the ring, performing daredevil moves. Every day she goes to the gym to rehearse the moves that made her a star. Children watch her curiously. Somewhere in the distance, a song plays: Irma was once a singer, too. In her memory, grainy images of old television clips flicker. Shot in Mexico City, the film is a tender portrait of the multi-talented luchadora and an unusual meditation on athleticism and aging.
Interview with director of Irma, Charles Fairbanks.
"You mean the generation that paid three times as much for college to enter a job market with triple the unemployment isn’t interested in purchasing the assets of the generation who just blew an enormous housing bubble and kept it from popping through quantitative easing and out-and-out federal support? Curious."
