Wish I would’ve gotten to this sooner since it’s late to be posting, but I really love this particular message and the discussion around “being a man” and how it relates to the treatment of women as well as gay men (or anyone else perceived as “less” / equivocated with being undesirably weak)

Women hear it all the time from men. “You’re overreacting,” we tell them. “Don’t worry about it so much, you’re over-thinking it.” “Don’t be so sensitive.” “Don’t be crazy.” It’s a form of gaslighting — telling women that their feelings are just wrong, that they don’t have the right to feel the way that they do. Minimizing somebody else’s feelings is a way of controlling them. If they no longer trust their own feelings and instincts, they come to rely on someone else to tell them how they’re supposed to feel.

Men really need to stop calling women crazy (via 5000letters)

Yes, women are “crazy” but males are the ones who go on shooting-sprees and call in bomb threats at conventions and schools.

The fact that I end every sentence with ‘idk’ is a really good reflection of my self esteem

"A very specific way some young women express a sense of incompetence is by claiming ignorance, not about something specific, but in general, by uttering the words,…

the whole concept of weaponized femininity depresses me, tbh. yes, as a teenager and early-20-something frequently described as “striking,” i, too, tried to weaponize my femininity—and then i realized that it didn’t stop men from objectifying and preying on me. so while i’m still very feminine,…

liberal social justice is saying “don’t discriminate against poor people” instead of “why are people poor in the fucking first place”

People have a knack of really over simplifying feminism like “feminism: the radical notion that women are people” or “feminism is literally just believing in equality” like… no its not its so much more complex than that ask any dingus if they think women and men should be equal they’ll probably say yeah but their actions and thoughts probably majorly contradict that so quit acting like anyones a feminist if they vaguely believe women are ok humans

Dark-Winged Angels: Roberto Ferri

Sumptuous oil paintings by Taranto, Italy romantic painter Roberto Ferri (b. 1978), modern master of his own Baroque revival, who some call Caravaggio’s heir. Who am I to argue?

We often see Ferri’s Lucifero posted here and at other blogs (the fifth image down). No idea why I hadn’t previously taken the time to look up more of this painter’s work. Gorgeous, one and all. But be they good or bad, why, we must wonder, are all of the angels’ wings dark?

Things you don’t need to understand:

  • Someones gender
  • Someones sexual orientation
  • Someones religious beliefs or lack thereof
  • Someones identity
  • Someones mental illness
  • Someones disability
  • Someones personal decisions about their personal life

So long as they are not hurting anyone with these things or using these things to actively oppress others you don’t need to understand them, you just need to accept and support them.
