So my friend Kim and I were having a conversation about feminism over Facebook right when this guy posted this… Then this happened. I am so done with men, and am embarrassed to be one.
Fixed it for you:
Under the heading of “Feminazi,” feel free to also add:
- A racist term coined by Rush Limbaugh
- An image used to actively frighten women away from feminism

amazing how a ~~real feminist~~ by this misogynist standard is the woman who doesn’t challenge individual men or patriarchy in general, in any way shape or form, right down to having to be skinny as if appearance automatically equates with politics. Amazing how men can ironically place themselves as authorities on what constitutes feminism.
I’m seriously thinking this HAS to be a joke cos no one could be this fucking obtuse
that awkward moment when you have problem hair
Just wanted to interject, notice how the punishment options for a dress code violation are 2 days without education, public humiliation, or no more education for the day. I'm gonna take a wild guess and say there are more rules targeting and therefore more 'offenses' for the girls. It is impossible for this treatment to better anyone but specifically it's doing all it can to hurt those girls.
Dress codes that target revealing clothing are a sexist double standard because clothes advertised and sold to women are inherently more revealing. Women’s shorts are made shorter. Tops are made lower-cut. It’s blatantly sexist to apply the same rules to all students when those rules are obviously targeting a specific group.
how do you feel about people who say that trying to eradicate things like dress codes is pointless because it's "not oppressive enough"? people have told me that theres no point in trying to fix these issues because there are bigger issues to worry about (such as acid attacks on women in Pakistan).
I think people who say that shit need to remember the pyramid of oppression and do some reading into how even microaggressions contribute to a kyriarchal system of oppression and privilege.
It’s back to school season in America, which unfortunately also means a return to infuriating and overzealous dress code enforcement in schools across the country. Case in point: Over the past few weeks around 200 Staten Island students have received detention for violating their school’s dress code. What do almost all of those students have in common? A full 90% were girls.
This is one fashion trend that needs to end immediately. Here are 13 prime examples of the ways young girls have been shamed and even sexualized by school dress codes.
Today I was stopped in the hallway on my way to class by one of the security guards. She wouldn’t let me go to class and forced me to walk across the school to the main office to have my mom, who by the way was on her way to work, bring me “real pants” because the way I dressed was “sexually provocative.” Because of this I was ten minutes late to class, and after five minutes of actually being in class I was taken back out to be talked to again by the security guard and given my “real pants.”
These shorts are mid-thigh, and I am wearing opaque black tights. Other than my hands and my face, I had no skin showing whatsoever. So tell me, how is this being “sexually provocative?” (reminder: this is a typical american public high school, not a private or religious-oriented school)
The security guard ridiculed me, saying that what I was wearing was inappropriate. I told her that everyday, other girls walk around in skin-tight yoga pants, some even with their thongs clearly showing, and shirts that are see-through. “This is not bad clothing.” I had told her. This security guard plays favorites with the girls on who she does call out and doesn’t call out. On game days, the cheerleaders decide to wear their skirts that barely cover their butts and she doesn’t cal them out at all. She also openly said to my mom "I don’t look at what the boys are wearing, only the girls."
When my mom came in to bring me the pants, she had a long talk with the security guard. She told my mom that I should know that there is a dress code, and that I should follow it. My mom told her “Maybe there shouldn’t be a dress code if it isn’t monitored consistently. This is double-standards.”
My mom also told her “The only distraction from class that is going on is you are pulling my daughter out of class and keeping her from learning.”
I had to walk up to this security guard to get my long pants, since she was talking to my mom, and my mom said to me sarcastically: “It appears that you are being sexually provocative, darling.”
"Oh yes mama, all the boys are just popping boners everywhere!" I pretended to swoon. We both left, my mom calling back to the security guard: "I didn’t need this today, you know. I need to get to work and I haven’t even showered yet. Good Job."
The whole ordeal was ridiculous. Girls shouldn’t be ridiculed for wearing shorts. Even so, I was wearing thick tights that you couldn’t see through–much better than just wearing yoga pants. There is no way that what I was wearing could even be considered “sexually provocative.” Plus, anything the boys wear is completely fine in the eyes of the security guard, it’s only what the girls are wearing that are “inappropriate.” Even yoga pants where you can see the thong through it don’t “disrupt class” because nobody cares enough about what a student wears and does not wear, only the security guards.
tl;dr, dress codes are counterproductive and the enforcers cause more disruption for a student’s learning than shorts do.
Wait, wait, wait, I have an amazing new idea. How about we fix the American school system.
What the hell is even going on in America
Let’s not forget to mention the plethora of cases where kid’s who were defending themselves from bullies got punished as well.
everyone’s grandparents seem to have really cute stories of how they met, and like my grandparents met when my grandma was running away from police during a protest and she jumped on the back of my grandads motorcycle and just screamed “DRIVE FUCKING DRIVE”
I dunno man I think that story’s pretty fuckin cute.
