I need feminism because most men’s restrooms still aren’t equipped with baby changing stations. As someone who was married to a man who had sole custody of his young son, I’m hyperaware that feminism means EQUALITY, not female superiority. Feminism should and does support a man’s right to be as much of a parent to his child(ren) as any mother is allowed/expected to be.
This is a constant problem for Mr. Tea and myself. We’ve got twins, so even though I can change one kid on the change table in the ladies’ room, he’s left standing sort of awkwardly in the lobby with a messy child while I change one, come back, and get the other.
Nobody’s suggesting that men aren’t parents, so the lack of change tables goes well beyond ‘gender role reinforcing’ and straight into ‘ridiculous’.
My dad actually almost got kicked out of a mall once for changing my brother in the womens room of a mall. The only reason they didn’t call the cops on him was because the ladies in the room supported him.
I’d never even considered this but I support it
look at this flawless freaking woman
John Scalzi gets it.
I’ve realized this now, thank you v_v
What we need more in media-
Desexualized female characters
Mentally Ill characters
What we don’t need more of
2 or 3 Cishet white dudes as the protagonists with a bunch of queerbaiting.
I honestly hate it when people are hating on others because they are acting as their stereotype.
Honestly take some white girl who happens to be blonde and is pretty. If she happens to like Starbucks don’t give her shit for that all call her like some dumb white chick.
Like honestly this goes for everyone.
Just don’t give people shit for being a stereotype.
It’d also be nice if we forgot about stereotypes…
