I need feminism because “Who hired a stripper” shouldn’t be the first thing said to me when I walk into a welding job.

Guerrilla resistance to advertising:

If advertisements typically occupy our lives as a taken-for-granted source of psychological coercion, this campaign reminds us to (1) actually look at what we’re seeing and (2) remember not to take ads, their messages, or their products too seriously.

I love you, Miss Grotke.

Again, this makes me happy, why would anyone be so proud/arrogant about their gender/race/heritage’s superiority/centricity as to think this was a bad thing?

PRAISE BE

Wendy’s is doing the same thing.
Will wonders never cease.

Reblogging this because it keeps showing up on my dash and I keep not-quite raining on the parade, but it seems like everyone thinks this means something different than it does, so I guess I’ll rain on it a little bit.I’m afraid this motion has nothing to do with conquering the gender binary or whatever Tumblr is really happy about to be reblogging it so heavily. It’s not about making little children feel like they can get whichever toy they prefer. It’d be nice if it was, but I’d be shocked if that was the case.No, the girl toy here is a My Little Pony. Which means that the *real* reason for this notice is that a bunch of bronies, as there are bajillions of photos and videos of them doing, are coming into fast food restaurants and buying several happy meals. They threw pissy fits when asked if they wanted the “boy or girl” toy, insisting that My Little Pony isn’t for girls or whatever, again, only saying this because of overwhelming evidence that bronies do this shit. Management eventually has enough of it, asks employees to just ask if people want Skylanders or My Little Pony so they won’t have any more disgusted bronies getting mad that their precious fandom is targeted at crappy dumb little girls.
So the short version is: this little paper unfortunately means the exact opposite of what you think it means, socially speaking. It was put up because grown-ass men get all pissy when it’s suggested that they like a thing for girls.
Proof: http://www.equestriadaily.com/2014/04/editorial-how-to-buy-mcdonalds-ponies.html <— this was posted on the net’s biggest brony hive on April 10, 2014. So yeah, this is sadly not about anything else but how awful bronies are, sorry.

siiiiiiigh

Bronies ruin everything.

So the outcome SEEMS like it’s gender neutral, while the ACTION is actually male (Brony) as the default (customer). I just… I will never get this Broni thing? Ok? Never. I wasn’t a MLP girl as a child, but this thing makes it hard to even get INTO it now.
And just brings up a thing I saw the other day - where someone was wishing AppleJack and Rainbowdash could be made to act and appear ”more feminine’.
… Yeah. Not even my fandom and I’M all WTF?!
I can’t even.
A few months ago, I’d have tried to ‘feel’ it by imagining if Fedoras took over She-Ra or JEM. But then, Fedoras actually took over JEM so - yeah.

I am never going to be ok with Bronies and here’s why. The first time I met my boyfriend’s nieces, I was chatting with their mom and I noticed that they are all in love with MLP.  And I mentioned the movie and she said they went once, but she decided not to take them again because the first time there had been too many adult men without children in the audience.
So, the reason I’m not ok with it is that adult men have taken over a space intended for young girls.  And they’ve done so in a way that makes that space no longer safe for young girls. 

___
Well fuck. When you say that?
…
At first part of me felt and generally does feel someway, about assumptions on non-child accompanied men in certain places.  Bear with me. My mind goes to widowers/grieving parents, male queer couples contemplating parenthood and people who only physically seem adult but mentally are not. Then my mind goes to what I know some women have gotten away with re: societal attitudes about women without children in child oriented spaces.
Then my mind flicked to being in a theater, with a bunch of adults reacting in adult ways and those adult ways being full of misogyny and rape culture and the hard sexual element that seems to be part of ‘Broni-hood’ - and two little kids sitting in the middle of all that. [emphasis mine]
And now I realize, that’s not the only part. The chance to bond with peers via an expedition to the movie of a beloved franchise? You’d now have to group together and buy out a show and thus it all be people you kind of know already. No chance of your kids, your girls, giggling and making eye-contact with someone else their age wearing a certain t-shirt, etc…
It’s an invasion of a woman only space, or at least a majority woman only space - that these assholes think and unfortunately ARE getting away with - because it’s a ‘junior woman only space’. And their attitude is not just that women don’t count, it’s that young women - young girls don’t count. Young girls don’t get to have ANYTHING. Not even the things propped up in pink - not if it’s deemed ‘good enough that it SHOULD be for ‘BOYS/MEN’.
I guess I should rephrase my ‘don’t get’ with ‘won’t accept the bullshit of’ - cause I DO get the message; “Girls don’t get ANYTHING.” And it’s fucked up.
On the surface; MLP or Skylanders should be gender neutral. But it isn’t. It CAN’T be when what precipitated the change was ‘the social stigma of girlhood’.
