On the one hand I love that tumblr has made feminism more widespread and accessible.

On the other hand I hate how it’s been transformed into this ultra-comformist, liberal, pop-culture-ish blob of lipstick and glitter and capitalism.

On this day in 1958, the National Aeronautics & Space Administration began operations.On July 29th, 1958, ten months after Sputnik 1 was launched into orbit, President Eisenhower signed the National Aeronautics and Space Act establishing NASA as a civilian space agency. The new agency absorbed the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, including its budget, resources and personnel. Prior to the formation of NASA, space exploration was considered to be largely military enterprise. NASA would begin operations on October 1, 1958.Celebrate NASA’s birthday by telling Congress to increase NASA’s budget: http://www.penny4nasa.org/take-action/

While I can understand the OPs frustrations with having such a harsh accusation being made about their ship, I also see the merit (or foregone conclusion) to the idea that Captain Swan or Hook can promote rape culture. The issue lies in the fact that it is all up to interpretation. However, instead of blind accusations, I am going to choose to educate. I will provide the defintion of ‘rape culture’ and then place it alongside Captain Hook/Captain Swan scenes. Again, this is not prove that rape culture is occurring, merely showing how it can be interpreted as such.
From: Transforming Rape Culture by Emilie Buchwald 

A rape culture is a complex of beliefs that encourages male sexual aggression and supports violence against women. It is a society where violence is seen as sexy and sexuality as violent. In a rape culture, women perceive a continuum of threatened violence that ranges from sexual remarks to sexual touching to rape itself. A rape culture condones physical and emotional terrorism against women as the norm.In a rape culture both men and women assume that sexual violence is a fact of life, inevitable as death or taxes. This violence, however, is neither biologically nor divinely ordained. Much of what we accept as inevitable is in fact the expression of values and attitudes that can change.

Encourages male sexual aggression and supports violence against women.

Emotional terrorism (manipulation or bullying)

Remember, Emma thought Hook was a stranger in this scene. This is a man - who kissed her without her wanting him to - telling Emma drink a strange liquid without any knowledge of what’s inside it. We are taught, as women, not to take drinks from strange men because of what might have been put in them. I understand Hook would never give Emma date rape drugs, but the perception of this scene within its context can be disturbing. 

Much of what we accept as inevitable is in fact the expression of values and attitudes that can change.
While people have made a case for Hook’s ‘redemption arc’ by saying he is not the man he used to be, I personally see his “change” is for less than honorable reasons.


It comes from what can be interpreted as over possessive behavior and not fierce loyalty to the woman he loves.

So, is it stupid or ignorant to think that the idea of rape culture is depicted? No. Do I think the phrase has the capacity to be thrown around by ignorant people? Yes. On the other hand, ignoring it is not the answer. This is a problem, and it is not being addressed.

If you wanna now what a guy is really like, find out how he talks about women when they’re not around.

It is difficult to be sat on all day, every day, by some other creature, without forming an opinion on them.

On the other hand, it is perfectly possible to sit all day, every day, on top of another creature and not have the slightest thought about them whatsoever.

Anonymous asked: What are the signs of emotional abuse?

mental-health-advice:

Abusive Expectations - Makes impossible demands, requires constant attention, and constantly criticizes.

Aggressing - Name calling, accusing, blames, threatens or gives orders, and often disguised as a judgmental “I know best” or “helping” attitude.

Constant Chaos - Deliberately starts arguments with you or others. May treat you well in front of others, but changes when you’re alone.

Rejecting - Refusing to acknowledge a person’s value, worth or presence. Communicating that he or she is useless or inferior or devaluing his or her thoughts and feelings.

Denying - Denies personal needs (especially when need is greatest) with the intent of causing hurt or as punishment. Uses silent treatment as punishment. Denies certain events happened or things that were said. Denies your perceptions, memory and sanity by disallowing any viewpoints other than their own which causes self-doubt, confusion, and loss of self-esteem.

Degrading - Any behavior that diminishes the identity, worth or dignity of the person such as: name-calling, mocking, teasing, insulting, ridiculing,

Emotional Blackmail - Uses guilt, compassion, or fear to get what he or she wants.

Terrorizing - Inducing intense fear or terror in a person, by threats or coercion.

Invalidation - Attempts to distort your perception of the world by refusing to acknowledge your personal reality. Says that your emotions and perceptions aren’t real and shouldn’t be trusted.

Isolating - Reducing or restricting freedom and normal contact with others.

Corrupting - Convincing a person to accept and engage in illegal activities.

Exploiting - Using a person for advantage or profit.

Minimizing - A less extreme form of denial that trivializes something you’ve expressed as unimportant or inconsequential.

Unpredictable Responses - Gets angry and upset in a situation that would normally not warrant a response. You walk around on eggshells to avoid any unnecessary drama over innocent comments you make. Drastic mood swings and outbursts.

Gaslighting -A form of psychological abuse involving the manipulation of situations or events that cause a person to be confused or to doubt his perceptions and memories. Gaslighting causes victims to constantly second-guess themselves and wonder if they’re losing their minds.
