Age of Ultron and Feminism -SPOILERS-Reviews of Age of Ultron have been going up and one consistent theme across many of them is the “problematic” nature of Black Widow’s character arc. The general consensus seems to be that Black Widow, the bad ass female hero on a team of men, was devalued by forcing her into a relationship and making her goals “let’s be a couple” and it’s all Joss Whedon’s fault.Age of Ultron and Feminism -SPOILERS-3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
As a feminist myself, I find a lot of this over simplification and anger at the movie to be kinda misguided. I haven’t been seeing my viewpoints talked about much at all, which is where this journal comes into play. So here’s why, in my opinion, the subplot for Black Widow isn’t as bad as you may think.
1. First off I want to address the growing complaints that Black Widow is somehow “weaker” for wanting to have a normal life. I think that’s a really problematic mindset to have in regards to feminism. You see, in our American society there are

Feminism ruins madmax WHO KNEW as in saw it comingMad Max turns as a mangina cough- As a character notes in the new film Mad Max: Fury Road, everything hurts out in the Wasteland. That which does not kill you makes you stronger… and then something even stronger kills you. In that spirit, I’m going to lay my razor-edged cards on the table and say it straight: this is a very good sci-fi action film that was brutally murdered at the box office by its own glowing reviews.Feminism ruins madmax WHO KNEW as in saw it coming5 days ago in Personal More Like This
Critics turned people off Max’s long-awaited return to cinema by excessively praising this movie for purely political reasons. Some crucial portion of its potential audience sniffed out the feminist mindlock permeating these reviews and steered clear, even though it really isn’t the feminist harangue so many reviewers approvingly described it as.
Fury Road has other problems, too. Don’t get me wrong – its virtues are many, beginning with the incredible stunt work and production design. It’s strange to explain why a movie is flopp

Argument: "You're the real misogynist by painting women as victims"
This common "point" is a surefire way to make yourself look like a remorseless villain. The idea behind this sad tactic is to make the "feminist" feel like they're insulting women by insinuating that discrimination affects women at all, the idea being that only "weak" women would ever have a problem with misogynistic behavior to begin with. It's a distraction maneuver, dismissing any actual points raised in favor of an elaborately yet still thinly veiled "NO, U!"
Maybe because it's true. Take for example what happened to a rape surrivor who happened to be Pro Gamergate

Yep Feminism is offically supporting ISIS over it's own countries troops. This is fruther proof that Feminism is a cancer that is more of a potential threat to western society. It's kinda funnny how Feminism calims to be for the rights of everyone yet only for the rights of women and even then, quick to see them to the highest bidder, AKA ISIS.En sicker is the fact Swedish Feminists would glady bully moderate Muslim women who choose to wear the Hijab yet defend and spend millions in taxpayer dollars to give returning ISIS members counseling and job training depsite them being genuine Misogynists, child murders and war criminals.
Then again we already talked about the sheer hypocrisy of Swedish Foreign Policy before so i gu

A major gripe I have with modern feminism is that its approach towards achieving “equality” seems to be less about lifting women up and more about tearing men down, as if feminists feel the only way to “empower” women is to disempower men. As such, it’s rather uplifting for me to see women taking a much more positive approach towards female empowerment rather than through the typical male-bashing. Case in point: #GirlsWithToys.
At this point, I don’t need to tell you that there’s a severe deficiency of women within scientific fields. Most

You guys remember this one.
Toddlers are transphobic
Children as young as 3 are being forced to sign a contract promising not to use transphobic language. This is actually a response to a situation last year where schools were infiltrated by Muslim hardliners pushing an Islamic agenda. They asked the children some very inappropriate questions about race and sex and some kids were sent home in tears after being branded intolerant for giving the wrong answers.
What could go wrong?

being a feminist, I have indeed faced some issues and questions like "what the hell is feminism?" and "what about me??? men are oppressed too!"
let me answer these questions for you.
1. feminism = equality. feminism ≠ women>men
feminism ≠ women only
2. actually, yes! men can face unrealistic standards like women, just not as profusely. and I wouldn't say they're "oppressed"
3. ?????? no we're not trying to take over. we just wanna be equal. equal for all genders, races, orientation, etc.
4. please don't call yourself a meninist oh lordy for the sake of yourself please don't that's literally that dumbest shit ever
sub to four: if you are a meninist, please take some time to research
feminism and men's rights versus women's and anyone else's

The Protein World SagaFeminists are throwing a temper tantrum because the model on an ad campaign looks better than they could ever hope to be with their life styles of sitting on their butts all day. They had such an outrage party on Twitter but it turns out the company behind the campaign only received a single complaint over the poster, demonstrating just how effectual feminists really are. On the other hand, the company did get a bomb threat, leading to the company labeling the feminist protesters as terrorists, which is exactly how they've been acting. Further, the model used for the campaign points out the hypocrisy of complaining about the campaign's "body shaming" by shaming her for her body.The Protein World Saga1 month ago in Personal More Like This
But the best part about all this is that the company has reaped the rewards of this controversy. They have made a substantial profit using a very rare strategy: not giving in to feminist hype. Hopefully this can serve as a strategy for the future.
