nothing will fuck you up as much as the realization that there’s no real reason the alphabet needs to be in order
Anonymous asked: Muslim feminist? There is no such thing as feminist in islam tbh its male dominant religion.
A few rights given to women in Islam, a good 1,400+ years ago, when women were viewed as completely subservient to men, and people practiced female infanticide:
- Owning, Managing, and Maintaining Property
- Custody of Children
- Access to Education
- Choice of Spouse
- Keeping One’s Maiden Name After Marriage
- Equal Participation in the Political Process
- Spiritual Equality
The United Nations granted women these rights in the Declaration of Human Rights. In 1948. When many countries still had not given women the right to vote. In fact, over a thousand years after the death of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh), in 1586, French Catholics were still debating whether or not women possessed souls.
I’m so sick and tired of people who don’t practice Islam telling me about my religion. You really think millions of women have been coerced into believing in a tradition that views them as subservient? Get real.
tell a self proclaimed male feminist that he can’t be a feminist and watch him turn in to the biggest misogynist abusive shit within 0.2 seconds. happens 100% of the time.
Maybe if you weren’t being a bitch to people trying to help you they wouldn’t be a dick in return.
i wonder if men are actually trying to prove my point on purpose?
why do people say “don’t be a pussy” when talking about weakness more like “don’t be a man’s ego” because you know there isn’t nothing more fragile than that
because “pussy” is the shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which means “timid, cowardly”
and not the slang word for the female genital region?
literally no one else knows this. nobody.
theoretically sure you could make that weird leap, sure u can use wikipedia and pretend that’s totally how it is, but you’re wrong
people don’t use the word “pussy” b/c they don’t want to mouth out that $5 bullshit word, they use it because we’ve come to associate women with meekness and timidity and so when you call someone a pussy you’re calling them a woman. SURE, OKAY, maybe once upon a time that was the case but this is 2014 not 1586 so yea
the context of words changes and so even if this was correct at one point it ain’t any more
