“Shut up salad fingers” I yell at the quiet nerdy girl who never causes problems for anyone “ebaums bitch. Get back on weebls stuff” I’m really shouting, letting her have it. She looks terrified, her hands are twisting around themselves. I sense her panic, “homestarrunner SLUT go update your xanga” suddenly an explosion of animal print clothing and hair accessories as she reveals her true form- the year 2003
i call myself a subtle feminist, mostly because i’m not so interested the “riot grrrlbikinikillradicalarmpits” trend & i like boys+boy stuff, but these two quotes from “Sex At Dawn” really appeal to that “grrl power” side of me:
within a paragraph on the Victorian/Darwinian ideal of the “coy female”:
"The sexually insatiable woman [declared a terrified Donald Symons] is to be found primarily, if not exclusively, in the ideology of feminism, the hopes of boys, and the fears of men."
"Like all dominant groups, men seek to promote an image of their subordinate’s nature that contributes to the preservation of the status-quo. For thousands of years, males have seen woman not as woman could be, but only as males want them to be."
