SIGNAL BOOST THIS NEWS! Seriously, how come this isn’t all over tumblr? Angelina Jolie presided over the largest ever global anti-rape summit. She is using her celebrity for good. She is addressing rape in wartime and in conflict zones, which is where it is perpetuated on the most massive scale and in which context always has been used as a weapon.
Feminists of tumblr should get behind this woman. Let’s stop the perpetual erasure and trivialization of women in the media through their sexualization and start looking at the work that they do. Her acts here are easily in danger of being eclipsed by her image in the tabloids which is more concerned with her relationship to Brad Pitt and the fact that she is a sex symbol than the important feminist work that she is performing RIGHT NOW.
I am such a fan of this lady… and she does not deserve to be trivialized for being a woman, a sex symbol, and a celebrity. Here, she is working for social justice for women all over the world. She’s doing what’s right.
"Dude, I’m a lawyer and these women are educators," she said in reply. "Why the hell would I be in here soliciting prostitution?" Washington said he answered, "I don’t know but that’s what you’re doing."
ive been meaning to make work-related comics forever, so enjoy some choice movie title bastardizations.
(these all actually, seriously, happened, with no humor or awareness on the part of the customer at the time as far as I could tell. so, yes, someone actually asked for a ticket to “Detergent” with a straight face.)
This is LITERALLY THE STORY OF MY LIFE AS A MOVIE THEATRE EMPLOYEE.
With such guests as “That one movie, with X actor in it” or “The one, about that guy”
I got “A hundred ways to die in the west” and “a thousand ways to die in the west” and also “That West movie” or “Die in the West”.
"the James Brown movie"
My all-time favorite Maleficent mix-up: “That M movie! I’m not going to even try to say it, you know which one I mean!”
"How we leave you" "This is where I leave you"
"The super hero movie"
I am going to start writing them down at work and bring them to you guys. It’s… just…
And I have asked the question before of: These people knew this movie was coming out.. They have both seen and heard the trailers for them (tv, other movies, radio, etc.). They have HEARD the title of this movie spoken OUT LOUD at least once, but most often more than once. They are obviously somewhat literate. HOW DO YOU FUCK UP A NAME THAT BAD THAT YOU HAVE HEARD BEFORE?!
PSA brought to you by disgruntled (and often amused) movie theatre employees.
This is Sam Pepper. If you don’t know who he is, Sam is a successful YouTube prankster with over 2 million subscribers. He recently uploaded a video titled “Fake Hand Ass Pink Prank" where he pinched unsuspecting girls’ butts without their permission. None of this was done with the girls’ consent…meaning Sam Pepper sexually harassed and assaulted these women.
This is no longer a “simple, harmless prank” but rather a very serious matter and offence. If you haven’t seen the video yet, you can watch, dislike, and report it HERE. You can also take the pledge to help stop sexual violence at itsonus.org. Please do not let Sam get away with this kind of behavior. He crossed the line and needs to be held responsible for his disgusting actions.
This piece of garbage, right here, should be prosecuted for this.
I tried to go to the video, and YouTube has taken it down. Score one for anti-sexual assault!
Oh, of course! Mostly I just got into it with a “friend” about how there are feminists in the movement who are “prevalent in the media” who are total man-hating, bra-burning, radical assholes. And when I told him that a) I knew they existed, and b) it was about the same as Christians not wanting to be called Christians because of the Westboro Baptist Church givin them a bad name, he decided he had to drive the point home.
When asked about proof of these terrible media stories about radical “feminazis” and stuff, he refused to give any proof, only to refute the legitimate proof and names that were offered to him, and continue to argue until he decided that we were “jumping down his throat” (we weren’t) and peaced out of the conversation.
He basically said that he doesn’t “police his own” (meaning other males) about their sexist and misogynist remarks because he “got tired” of doing it, and was “tired” of people he knew illegitimatizing his arguments in favor of feminism all because he has a dick.
I’m PRETTY sure those are not the reasons he got “chewed out” in the past. I’m pretty sure that is his PERCEPTION of reality, considering the arguments I have seen come out of him on EVERY pro-feminism post I have ever made on Facebook and his absolute NEED (for no reason I can think of) to point out the crazies as if a) I didn’t know about them and b) I hadn’t ever acknowledged them in any of my arguments about feminism. I am pretty sure he is one of those patronizing “male feminists” who only say they are like that so as to save face. The same kind of people as the “NOT ALL MEN” people, who are more worried about their own feelings and insecurities than they are about the very real struggles that huge groups of people are facing.
In any case, I posted a bunch of funny pictures and it helped. :)
Suddenly I understand some of my fan base a LOT better. That is Awesome.
"holy shit there is a name for it" was my reaction before I even scrolled down to the comments.
I just need to keep reblogging this because I cannot even begin to tell you how profound a feeling of YES and THIS and THERE IS A WORD FOR ME OMG I get every time I see this, and I hope it helps others too.
seriously, anytime you see a post with a comment saying “theres a name for it?!” reblog that post because even if it doesnt apply to you any of your followers could be waiting for that revelation.
