#WomenNotUnderstandingTheIssueEvenASmidge

First problem: if you work for a “boss” as in having healthcare through your company, you pay this thing called a premium. As in, you pay. You pay money.
Let me repeat that again: You. Pay. Money. For. Your. Healthcare. Coverage. You don’t just check a box saying “yes I want healthcare coverage” and boom, you never pay a cent.
Your boss does not “provide it for free.” You pre-pay for it EVERY MONTH whether you use your healthcare for birth control, cancer treatment, mammograms, a urinary tract infection, a routine physical, meds for your pre-existing condition (Thanks ACA!) or NEVER GO TO THE DOCTOR AT ALL.
Reason number one that I need not just feminism and sex education in schools but BASIC FUCKING HEALTHCARE RULES TAUGHT IN SCHOOL INSTEAD OF REQUIRING ME TO TAKE THREE YEARS OF FUCKING FINDING THE MEANING OF X. I CAN FIND THE BASIC MEANING OF X BY THE END OF YEAR ONE. TEACH PEOPLE HOW FUCKING INSURANCE, LOANS, HEALTHCARE, ETC. WORKS INSTEAD!
Also reason number one that people need to be taught what “pre-paid” means.

Reblogging for that ranting response. Beautiful. They are right. You pay for the healthcare given by your company. It isn’t free. - Mod Helga

  • chronic fatigue
  • hormonal problems
  • irregular menstrual cycles

  • infections
  • lowered immune system
  • migraines
  • shortness of breath

it is a lot more than just “feeling anxious “

thank you.

OK. So Children’s Place were selling Guardians of the Galaxy t-shirts for boys… and left Gamora out of the ugly-ass t-shirt design because she’s a female character and this “shirt in particular is a boy’s shirt.”

THIS. THIS IS WHY WE CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS, PEOPLE.

(via: http://uproxx.com/gammasquad/2014/08/guardians-of-the-galaxy-t-shirt-leaves-off-gamora/)

We all know that’s bull because the girls’ shirts are always covered in male characters. Apparently having a female character on merchandise would accidentally give young girls and women the false impression that they matter too. And we can’t have that, now, can we? 

so uhm. I bought a Guardians shirt from the same company, and it has Gamora on it…am i special?

I think this one is specifically for young boys and that’s the issue here? Maybe? 

either way I think its a stupid thing to get mad about. especially since its a young boys. Boys are weird and are like “EW NO A GIRL” im not kidding, boys are just immature when they are little so it makes sense, and this thing about “girls shirts only having men” on them IS FALSE and you know what its not like they DONT put her on anything they put her on most of the stuff too just not when its directed towards really young men and that isn’t because “oh hey we need to show women aren’t people” its becasue THEY NEED TO SELL THEIR PRODUCT AND BOYS ARE IMMATURE AND STUPID! 

But they wouldn’t be if their parents weren’t all upset and immature too. At least in some cases. I have a cousin who is a ten year old boy that wanted to have a shirt with Princess Zelda on it instead of Link cause I was getting a tee shirt with Link on it and he wanted to have a different one than I did… so kids can be just as weird the other way too. 

yeah but mainstream is being immature and stupid. I was grown up in a house that was mainly women and it was REALLY STRONG for me to respect woman and know they are people and everything too, and yet I was still immature and stupid and was like “NO CANT HAVE GIRL ANYTHING ON MY STUFF” but yeah it works both ways, but your cousin was also ten, this is like a shirt for 6 through 8 year olds, once ten it usually starts to change at least it did for me. Not saying they need to keep women off shirts, I think it’d be awesome to have Gamora on the shirt. Young (like really young) boys just don’t like having “girly” (yes I am aware gamora isn’t girly at all, but i was the same way and yes…i know its stupid) So even growing up in a household like that a 6 to 8 year old boy is usually gonna be so anti girly its stupid. Not EVERY kid no, of course everyone is different but that is the MAIN thing, and as we know companies are ALL ABOUT MAINSTREAM. Like a lot of Marvel movies change things for MAIN STREAM audiences not for Marvel fans. I hope that made sense. I do get what you mean though and yeah some kids are different, and it is possible to change this and it would be cool, I am just saying attacking the company about this, really isn’t cool, we just need to change THIS generation so we can make sure the NEXT generation will be awesome like this! I hope that makes sense aha.

It makes perfect sense! But kids are weird. xD I would be sad for a boy who liked Gamora in the movie and couldn’t get some fun stuff with her included. Cause I personally wouldn’t buy this shirt for my cousins… cause it’s missing one of the Guardians. But hey company can do whatever it wants. As much business as it loses by not having her there it probably gains. Superhero stuff really should be less ‘boy’ and ‘girl’ though. That’s just my opinion. I have a hard time finding shirts that accommodate my ‘small’ ‘female’ and ‘dork’ requirements. x3 

yeah to me its just “YEAH SUPER HEROES” it was funny I got a ton of Guardians stuff and then started noticing all these things saying Gamora isn’t on any of them and i was like “WHAT” and i checked them and the only things i had without her were the dog tag (which only had rocket and star lord) and my lunch box (which actually bothered me a bit). But Gamora is my least favorite (not because she is a girl, she just somewhat bored me in the film but I STILL LOVE HER DONT GET ME WRONG. In the comics she is my second favorite to star lord, I just didn’t think she was captured the greatest in the film, not bad though haha) but I still wish she was on more things, it seems to be the more directed towards kids things that dont have her, while everything else seems to have her along with everyone. So honestly I think is something being blown a little out of proportion considering she is on MOST products and people are just singling out the few she isn’t on.

Oh yeah. That happens with everything. x3 Honestly I mostly just want stuff with Starlord on it anyway. But I also bitched about the poster with all of the Guardians having Peter’s face covered by his mask and my boyfriend laughed at me cause it was a silly thing to be annoyed about. xD And I agree completely, I feel like her character was the least developed in the movie which is sad cause she’s SO cool in the comics. And really is Guardians directed at kids in the first place? Cause it felt like it was mostly for older than that, like teenagers, young adults and adults. I mean Peter actually swears in the movie… More than once. I know some parents that would lose their shit about their kids watching it because of that.

It’s strange how these people suddenly go full body-shaming and resort to just hurling insults at someone when said person disagrees with them. Let’s go over what Jon has recently said on twitter. First Tim Schafer posts an Anita Sarkeesian video, stating that everyone should watch it. Jon calls him out on it, makes jabs at Anita’s refusal to debate her points, and states that both genders are objectified in gaming. 
Jon then goes on to make several posts where he states that he supports women, and that he loves games where women kick ass (which he argues that there are plenty of). I would link to the posts in question, however they’ve mostly been deleted by now. Here is a screen taken by tumblr user bmann14k though.
So tumblr is throwing a shitfit over Jon saying that men are objectified in gaming too. Whether you agree with this or not is not the issue. Tumblr is absolutely demonizing Jon, calling him fat and a ‘neckbeard’ and all kinds of shit, shown above. If you disagree with someone’s opinion… you don’t have to throw a goddamn tantrum and shout insults over the internet. People are acting like he’s committed a fucking crime, for saying that simple phrase. 
You celebrities are not going to be perfect little angels for you. They are not going to believe everything that you do, they’re not going to think the same words you think are bad to be bad also. Get this through your heads. Jon never said that women weren’t objectified in gaming. He just said that men were objectified as well. If you agree or disagree, that’s your choice, but please act like a fucking adult and don’t act like someone is terrible just because they think differently than you.

I will defend JonTron in this until I turn blue in the face from yelling. MEN AND WOMEN ARE EQUALLY OBJECTIFIED IN GAMES! And you know what… it is okay. I could give a rant on why this is fucking stupid but I don’t feel like it would be heard anyway.
