Request: Goofy sings BRING ME TO LIFE


Anonymous asked:

I know you get asked to do Goofy too much, but a cover of Bring Me to Life would be hilarious <3

Let me transport you to a simpler time, where you’re putting the final touches on your Inuyasha AMV in Windows Movie Maker.

Welcome back to 2003.

"The moment you introduce the language of “deserving”, you invite others to judge just how deserving you are; and a right very quickly becomes a privilege. What makes the “debate” around Josie Cunningham so disturbing is that it refuses to even acknowledge the idea that access to abortion is a basic human right, or that women are entitled to choose what they do with their own bodies. If we fail to defend Cunningham, then we accept that only those women who are “deserving” enough should be allowed to have an abortion. And if we accept that, then it’s only a matter of time before others are deemed undeserving as well."

Women’s Rights, Classism, Reproductive Rights, Media… it’s all a big ole mess.

Honestly it breaks my heart a little bit when I see cis women parsing out their feminism, discovering they lean radical, and then worrying what implications that will have on their trans friends and their friends who support trans people.

Like, no bby. Radical feminism doesn’t have to advocate for trans extermination. No no no no no. Please don’t do this. Please don’t listen to the people who lie to you. Trans women are necessary to radical feminism. You can be a radical feminist without adopting a hateful ideology against your fellow women.

On the contrary, it warms my heart to see women actually being aware of the history and impact of radical feminism instead of hiding their heads in the sand the way “non-TERF radical feminists” do. Because yes, the unpleasant reality is that trans extermination has been an inseparably “baked in” plank of radical feminism since its origin, making radical feminism even more inherently transphobic than it is racist. Which is to say, it’s always been explicitly transphobic, but merely implicitly racist.

In my experience, self-styled “non-TERF” radical feminists pretty much spend all their time attacking trans women and cis allies of trans women for daring to criticize radical feminist ideology. They’re basically the female equivalent of the “NOT ALL MEN” derailing MRAs.

Emphasis added.

i find it really grating when ppl point out that the bechdel test can’t singlehandedly demonstrate that a story is or isn’t feminist… bc well, of course it can’t??? that’s not the point??

the bechdel test is a blunt tool to demonstrate that female characters tend to be underdeveloped and/or tokenized in mainstream media. it’s useful to refer to it when you want to demonstrate that most stories within a given set don’t even pass it. & of course its criteria are somewhat limited, they were given in a bubble from a comic strip, not a thesis about representation in the media??

it’s not useful if you want to do a nuanced feminist analysis of a particular story but the reason it’s not useful is bc… you’re misusing it. wow

Arguing with a “pro-feminist” MRA “equalist” for about 3 hours is frustrating.
