You may not agree with a woman, but to criticize her appearance — as opposed to her ideas or actions — isn’t doing anyone any favors, least of all you. Insulting a woman’s looks when they have nothing to do with the issue at hand implies a lack of comprehension on your part, an inability to engage in high-level thinking. You may think she’s ugly, but everyone else thinks you’re an idiot.
Super heroes are pro-choice!

This post is heart-breaking, but I think it really reinforces the message of the quote below about the importance of safe spaces (be they women-only or no).
Okay men, you know how shows say that every time you step into the ocean you’re stepping into the sharks’ territory and it’s their domain? And you know how you’re safe from sharks when you step out of the water?
Now try this: Mens’ space is the ocean. But the difference in this metaphor is that the entire world is the ocean, and women can’t get out of the water. There’s barely a life raft to be seen and if we want our own space we have to build our own island from the ocean floor fucking up.
And also, the men are constantly attacking the rafts with harpoons and kicking down the sand back into the water and trying to make their own life rafts in response, even though it’s entirely unnecessary because they already have the whole damn ocean as their space.
Tumblr commentary on this post about women’s need to create safe spaces (via thefemcritique)
Men who want to be feminists do not need to be given a space in feminism. They need to take the space they have in society & make it feminist.
It doesn’t matter what you do, if you’re not a straight white male you’re going to get more harshly criticised than other people so you might as well just do whatever the fuck you want.
