Gender is a hierarchy.  Gender is oppression. 

funny how dudes that don’t even question suffrage don’t realize they are recycling the same boring ass arguments as anti-suffrage males from back in the day

rosalind franklin discovered the double helix in dna but her research was stolen by two men before she could properly share the information and now watson and crick are famous for what she spent years studying

Plus she developed ovarian cancer that was most likely caused by radiation from the HUNDREDS of hours spent using x ray crystallography to ascertain the structure. She literally worked herself to death to be a footnote in most genetics textbooks.

A Nobel prize cannot be given posthumously, a very fact that in itself can be understandable but that was conveniently used in that case (and many others) to “forget” to mention a key player in the research.

(The prize also cannot be given to more than 3 persons, when it involves many more than that to make such a discoveries).

Someone bring me to Berlin to get a Chaim Machlev tatoo

Reblogged from Hold onto me as we go.

So tell me. How far can I walk on my own at night? How many metres, exactly, can I walk unaccompanied without having to fear for my life?

How many drinks am I, an adult woman, allowed to have after work on Friday night before being dismissed as a “party girl” or “asking for it”? How high can my heels be, and how short a skirt can I wear, before being implicated in any crime against me? And, just so that I’m clear, how many metres can I walk to get myself home?

And if something happened to me, how harshly would I be judged? If I vanished on that walk to my front door, what would you have to say about me? Would I be tut-tutted at for not accepting the offer of an escort home? Would idiots take to Facebook to admonish me for supposedly leading some guy on?

Would do-gooders and commentators and Twitterati-types take my parents to task for not raising me to act sensibly? Would they lambast my friends and lovers for not taking adequate care of me? Would everyone in my life suffer because I exceeded my allocated metres of solo walking?

Would every media outlet in the country view my disappearance as an opportunity to point out that, as it happens, women have more to fear in our world than men?

Would you, quietly, at the back of your mind, think that if I’d just stayed home with my partner, like a good wife and woman, none of this would have happened to me?

Are you just looking for one big, smug fucking excuse to say that you told me so?

And just so that we’re absolutely fucking clear, how many metres am I allowed to walk on my own at night?

I am the girl who prefers to spend her Friday night curled up with her pillow, reading a good novel, and I am also the girl who likes to go out on a Saturday night and dance until the DJ plays his last song. I am the girl who wants to wear beat up converses and an oversized sweatshirt, and I am also the girl who owns over sixty dresses and too many shoes to count. Why did it become okay to say one is better than the other? Because I am all of that.

“Batman doesn’t have to put up with this shit—why should we?”
― Caitlin Moran, How to Be a Woman

No but really, the guy can wear a freaking spandex costume in the street and no one would have the idea to say to him “hey man, you’re cute” or to whistle at him every five seconds.

But us women … we can’t even wear sport shorts to go running without getting that and more. And let’s not even talk about the insults if we dare say anything back !!

So Batman may not have to put up with this but we do, and it’s pissing me off so much that I will keep doing it. I will not let it stop me, not when it’s 35°C outside and I wanna do sports.

So if men’s hormones can’t handle it, they’ll just have to suck it up, like we do, everyday freaking day !!



Neiled it!

He fuckin gets it.
