Tell me again why a women’s liberation movement is no longer needed.

Dear “I don’t need feminism” crowd…

The Iowa Supreme Court on Friday stood by its ruling that a dentist acted legally when he fired an assistant because he found her too attractive and worried he would try to start an affair. Coming to the same conclusion as it did in December, the all-male court found that bosses can fire employees they see as threats to their marriages, even if the subordinates have not engaged in flirtatious or other inappropriate behavior. The court said such firings do not count as illegal sex discrimination because they are motivated by feelings, not gender." [x]

Are you fucking kidding me.

I just don’t understand this. Why?? How?? What in the world?

funny how a male employer’s decisions ~*~*motivated by feelings*~*~ are totally permissible and even defended in a court of law but god forbid women ever have feelings period let alone make decisions based on them

But when we accuse men of thinking with their dicks like these dicks did then there’s a problem ! I just can’t understand how the loopholes in law and the belief that men can’t control themselves get to influence lives.

The nerve of that dentist though, don’t you have to share a mutual attraction with someone in order for them to want to have any affair with you ?! What the fuck is “because he found her too attractive and worried he would try to start an affair” ? She was clearly not showing interest and so she was fired for being pretty.Every woman has gone through this bullshit at one point or another at work.

As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!

Danièle’s husband, Brian Lucas, who is white, says he believes they were targeted because they are an interracial couple.

black privilege….

they literally saw a black woman kissing a white man and ASSUMED SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE. and then they said they were married AND THE COPS FUCKING ASKED FOR ID???? what the fuck? what the fuck? and she said no AND WAS ARRESTED? they need to be fired but God knows that’s not going to happen. LISTEN: she’s an actress. this happened to a producer. even fucking Oprah. no matter what you accomplish as a black person, you are still black and people don’t think their rights apply to you despite the constitution
it’s really scary
it’s really infuriating
it’s really exhausting

Her face makes me very very very very very sad. I wanna cry

Fuck all cops.

I don’t know why the husband believes they were targeted because they were an interracial couple… SHE was targeted because SHE was black… da fuk…

Right. He somehow had to make it about him when it was obvious that it was about her being black.

well part of the reason they stood out was because they were an interracial couple. let’s not pretend that isn’t still taboo.

Who’s cuffed though…..

I don’t think that people generally realise what motion picture industry has done to the American Indian, as a matter of fact, all ethnic groups, all minorities, all non-whites. And people just simply don’t realise, just take it for granted that that’s the way people are going to be presented and these clichés are just, I mean on this network every night, well perhaps not every night, but you can see silly renditions of human behaviour, the leering Filipino houseboy, the wily Japanese, the kook or the gook, black man, stupid Indian. It just goes on and on and on. And people actually don’t realise how deeply people are injured by seeing themselves represented, not so much the adults, who are already inured to that kind of pain and pressure, but children. Indian children seeing Indians represented as savage, as ugly, as nasty, vicious, treacherous, drunken. They grow up only with a negative image of themselves and it lasts a lifetime. 

Marlon Brando on why Sacheen Littlefeather presented a speech on his behalf during his Best Actor win for The Godfather at the 1973 Academy Awards

I got dressed in my traditional Indian regalia, but there was a man, he was the producer of the whole show. He took that speech away from me and he warned me very sternly. “I’ll give you 60 seconds or less. And if you go over that 60 seconds, I’ll have you arrested. I’ll have you put in handcuffs.”

- Sacheen Littlefeather in Reel Injun (2009), dir. Neil Diamond.

This is one of the best moments of the academy awards .
I can’t believe I never learned about it in film

jesus fucking christ 

how did this even get on the market???who decided this was fashionable?smh

what the hell is wrong with people????

can someone fill me in on what this means? is this a symbol of an event that happened in America or

it’s referencing the Kent State shootings of May 4th 1970. The Ohio State Guard open fire on a number of unarmed students protesting the Cambodian Invasion. 4 ppl died, 9 wounded, 1 suffered paralysis. 

wOw
omg
who even
fuck

….

Just… yeah, fuck you Urban Outfitters.

One of my favorite teachers in high school was at Kent State during the shooting, his GF at the time was one of the wounded. Normally he wore a golf shirt and jeans, on May 4th, he’d wear a suit and a black arm band.

Urban Outfitters are LITERALLY TRASH

They’re a repulsive bunch of bigoted, evil sacks of crap and NO ONE should give these assholes any of their money

I’ll be a happy woman indeed if Urban Outfitters goes out of business and the pieces of garbage who run it wind up bankrupt

… WTF?

How many people okayed this?  How many people thought this would be a marketable item, which would not result in negative feedback?
