Heavy…. heavy,

Woah

… There’s a very important conversation to be had there.

If this is being brought up shouldn’t we also addressing the age of the politicians in places of power tho?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This is so much bullshit.

People over 65 often have decades ahead of them. (heck, sometimes they still have half a century ahead of them). And in those decades they run a very high risk of becoming dependent on the health care system and an increased risk of ending up in poverty. Even if they’re lucky enough not to run into any financial difficulties, they’re likely to end up in care homes that are extremely racist, homophobic, transphobic etc. Many LGBT/queer elderly who have spend their lives being out end up forced back into the closet once they live in an elderly home. People with disabilities, who are already likely to be denied health care during their entire life, are extremely likely to be denied health care once they are elderly. This is life theatening.

The only elderly people who have too much power are elderly able-bodied healthy straight white men. We could do with a few less of those in government. But a LOT of elderly people are living in poverty, dependency and oppression and are silenced or simply completely ignored by politicians and activists alike. And that is incredibly fucked up.

I understand that you think I acted too emotionally. Putting aside the fact that men always say that about women they work with, I’ll get straight to the point: I am emotional. I do bring it into my work. It’s what motivates me. It’s what helps me get into the headspace of our victims, see what they’ve seen, even if I don’t want to, even if it horrifies me. And I think it makes me a better agent. If you have a problem with that, I’m sorry. You can fire me. But I hope you don’t.

11 simple rules for being a male feminist

Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Aziz Ansari. John Legend.

These are a few of many male celebrities who have recently come out as feminists. Emma Watson’s high-profile #HeForShe campaign and the White House’s launch of #ItsOnUs against sexual violence have encouraged many more men to think critically about feminism. More importantly, about why it’s necessary to affirm and practice gender equality, given the many ways institutional sexism and the patriarchy have created environments where conventionally white, masculine, cisgender men have power and privilege. 

For men who wish to truly engage in the struggle for gender equality, here are some ways they can help help while remaining cognizant of how their identities may limit their understanding of women’s struggles.

I did go to school for Marine Biology, but the cool thing is… the greatest thing for me is that Polynesians, our gods, Kahoali, Maui, all these water gods, so it’s really cool and a honor to be playing a [water] character. And there’s not too many brown superheroes, so I’m really looking forward to representing the Polynesians, the natives.

My family are some of the greatest water men on earth. I’m not, but I’m going to go train with them. But it’s really an honor just being a Polynesian. And water is the most important thing in this world and we all know it. It’s cool be a part of DC’s universe.
