THIS IS WHAT MY FEMINIST UTOPIA LOOKS LIKE
Thank mr skeltal
10 year old Yemeni girl smiling after she was granted a divorce from her husband- a 30 year old man
Here’s what I found after looking into it.
Nujood Ali was nine when her parents arranged a marriage to Faez Ali Thamer, a man in his thirties. Regularly beaten by her in-laws and raped by her husband, Ali escaped on April 2, 2008, two months after the wedding.
On the advice of her father’s second wife, she went directly to court to seek a divorce. After waiting for half a day, she was noticed by a judge, Mohammed al-għadha who gave her refuge. He had both her father and husband taken into custody.
Indeed, publicity surrounding Ali’s case is said to have inspired efforts to annul other child marriages, including that of an 8 year old Saudi girl who was allowed to divorce a middle-aged man in 2009.
But in 2013 Ali reported to the media that her father had forced her out of their home and is withholding her money granted by publishers. Her father has also arranged a marriage for her younger sister, Haifa.
Also this girl has her own book
I just want some feminists to focus more on this than on defending Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian.
Realistically, what can they do? Most of the feminists that you likely encounter are based in USA, Canada, maybe UK. What can they do to affect attitudes and policies in a place like Yemen?
They can raise awareness. Tumblr is a global site where you can donate to people in many countries to aid them.
A very good thing they can do, for one, is set up donations for this kid or other kids. They can put efforts to start up shelters for such incidents.
There’s a lot of things western feminists can do. This post only has almost 9k posts, whereas a post about male tears has 36K.
I’M SORRY BUT I SAW THE PREVIEW AT THE END OF TODAY’S “DOCTOR WHO” EPISODE AND I COULDN’T STOP LAUGHING AT THIS SCENE AND THEN I THOUGHT OF THIS PART FROM ONE OF PEWD’S FRIDAY WITH PEWDIEPIE AND I LAUGHED MORE
"I’m not going to do the ice bucket challenge, I’m very sorry. It’s not going to make a difference if I do it or not. Everyone knows about the ice bucket challenge by this point. So instead I wanted to do what, it seems like a lot of people who do the ice bucket challenge don’t do, which is: talk about ALS, explain what ALS is."
he’s also going to donate $1,000
how can people even hate him? he’s amazing.
he is a beautiful human being
Fashion in Film: The Great Gatsby (2013)
All the bright precious things fade so fast…and they don’t come back.
Before Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel even hit theaters, it had garnered massive buzz amongst the fashion crowd. Luhrmann recruited longtime friend Miuccia Prada to create 40 outfits for the film, each inspired by pieces from the Prada and Miu Miu archives.
"Our collaboration with Prada recalls the European flair that was emerging amongst the aristocratic East Coast crowds in the Twenties," head costumer Catherine Martin said. "The fashions of the time saw the development of a dichotomy between those who aspired to the privileged, Ivy League look of wealthy Long Island and those who were aspiring to European glamour, sophistication and decadence. Our collaborations with Prada reflect the collision of these two aesthetics."
Specifically, Prada collaborated on the costumes worn during the immaculate parties at Jay Gatsby’s Long Island mansion. Carey Mulligan’s character Daisy Buchanan memorably saunters onto the scene wearing a flapper dress comprised entirely of crystal chandelier drops, topped with a plush fox stole — a look inspired by Prada’s 2010 collection.
"Catherine Martin analyzed my archive and gave some ideas of what could work," Prada said. "What also interested me was that something that was not meant to be ’20s at all could look so ’20s in the film. Pieces on the runway that were meant to be a completely different story look perfect as 1920s avant-garde modernism — and it all works — and that for me was impressive. Of course, we did variations in colors and lengths, and also [Martin] did all the hats and so much more…so it’s not like I did a big job!"
But the haute glamor didn’t end there. Brooks Brothers (one of the brands mentioned in the 1925 novel) created 1,700 immaculately tailored items for the men, including Leonardo Dicaprio’s Jay Gatsby and Tobey Maguire’s Nick Carraway. Meanwhile, Tiffany & Co, where Fitzgerald was a frequent customer, created stunning art deco baubles seen throughout the film. Notable pieces include the diamond and pearl headpiece and handpieces worn by Mulligan during the party scene, clocking in at a whopping $200,000 and $75,000, respectively.
Martin hit the nail on the head when replicating the opulence and excess of the Jazz Age, ultimately scooping up the Academy Award for Best Costume Design. However, Martin isn’t willing to take all of the credit."It’s the privilege of working with great actors, because ultimately costumes are just clothes. It’s the actors that transform them into the images that we perceive. It’s the actor’s ability to transform those clothes that is the amalgam.”
"When did you decide to be gay?"
Last week. I woke up and I was like I want to be judged and not accepted by most of society and denied basic human rights. I thought it would be fun to not be allowed to get married and to be called rude names when I’m with the person I love. I mean, who wouldn’t want that?
like 98% of my problems would be solved if i stopped overthinking things and calmed the fuck down and stopped being such a panicky, anxious little shit
