Hello friends and bloggers! My name is Andrew, aka Ohholycow, and this is my blog, however strange it may be. I'm into anime subculture, and I post mostly anime stuff. You'll probably see a lot of fanfics being posted here, too. I guess that's about it! I really hope that we can be friends. I'm seventeen, and my pronouns are he and him, if you wanted to know. Feel free to message me anytime!
Maybe now I can actually get some sleep.
Also an interesting point! I know a lot of Feminists who share the same beliefs as I do, so I’m definitely leaning towards Feminism as an identifier. However, you are correct in the regard that facts often get twisted around to fulfill their agendas (like here, on tumblr). It’s a terrible thing to do to such a good cause, but it does happen.
But to be honest, thinking about it a little more, I don’t think that I much care for labels. I think that as long as we stand for the same things, labels are just labels. Egalitarian, or Feminist, my opinions about the world and equality don’t change in the least. Again, thank you for your input!
Anyone have an opinion they would like to share? Shoot me an ask!
Thank you so much for your advice! Honestly, I’ve been seeing a lot of toxicity on this site lately, and frankly I’m just glad that there are still good people here (like you!).
Anyone else want to join in the conversation, feel free!
So lately I’ve been wondering where I stand on the spectrum of social justice. I’m not sure if I should be considered a Feminist or not. Basically, here is my dilemma:
I am absolutely for equal rights between genders: equal pay, equal respect, equal career opportunities and legal coverage, all of it! But on the other hand, I’ve found that a lot of Feminists (on tumblr, at least) wish for the death/misfortune of men,and spread around a lot of toxic opinions, such as “women shouldn’t ever be housewives or stay-at-home mothers” or “Men are pigs and liars who only self-serve and hurt women.”
Also, as I reblogged a couple of posts from this-is-Cthulhu-privilege, I’ve been losing followers, some of whom I really care about. I honestly don’t know who I should believe at this point. I’m not trying to hurt or offend anyone, but I don’t know how to go about it, either. I’m honestly very troubled by it, and I could really use some words of wisdom. Do you guys have any advice?
