The illusion always has to end sometime, right?
Why are graduations so pointless? I mean, call out the peoples names and lets go! I don’t need to hear all these random speeches….
There’s like 300 people, we need to get effin started!!!
Oh man, there’s someone on the westeros forums claiming that Jaime doesn’t love Brienne because ‘he sees her as a sister’.
And if you don’t believe me, you’ve never been a married woman who kept her family name. I have had students hold that up as proof of my “sexism.”
My own brother told me that he could never marry a woman who kept her name because “everyone would know who ruled that relationship.” Perfect equality – my husband keeps his name and I keep mine – is held as a statement of superiority on my part.” —
I might have reblogged this already but it’s so good I don’t care.
Kyriarchy in action.
Also the study where they had women and men talking in a discussion and when women spoke around 30% of the time, men perceived them as dominating the discussion. They didn’t consider it “equal” until something like 5-10% of women talking.
Voila. A beautiful example of why fighting for equality becomes a gross exaggeration in the eyes of the oppressors.
this is why privileged opinions on who gets to talk and how vocally and frequently they are allowed to do this are irrelevant and oppressive. someone conditioned into superiority is in no place to decide when equality is reached because we/they already wrongly perceive the status quo to be equal and any alteration to be biased.
on the bus with kids while they talk about how they want to fuck some teacher of theirs. I hate teens.
