intersectionalfeminism:

Just to get this straight, in this double page spread there are:

  • Fat women
  • Of different races
  • Who are unedited (note the stomach and the rolls)
  • And are being praised for being the weight they are (and eating what they want)
  • While they are all being quotes talking about being healthy at any weight

I mean, this still isn’t perfect, but this is pretty damned impressive for a mainstream tabloid.

Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.

Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.

Before you think the girl in the middle is a strawman, let me tell you I used to be her, back in my misguided youth. I considered myself the standard to which other people should adhere. But that was stupid. It’s not up to me to tell people how to dress, and it’s much nicer to let everyone choose for themselves.

Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.

So my grandma is always the one to tell the story about how she met my grandpa, so last night, for the first time, I got to hear the story from my grandpa.

~~~~~

So my grandpa met up with some of his friends at this bar to get some burgers. His friends were on a double date and made the girls  mad and left them in the car. My grandpa decided to go chat up the girls. The girls were cold so my grandpa decided to take the car and drive around town for a little while to warm up the car. After they drove back to the bar my grandma wrote down her number on the back of a matchbook in her lipstick and gave it to my grandpa.

Funny enough, my grandpa was already on a date of his own that night. He had apparently made her mad earlier in the night, too, and met up with her again after he left the other girls. He said, “I knew exactly what I was going to do when I took her home.”

He drove up to the edge of the driveway, still on the road, leaned across her and opened the door and said, “Have a good night.”

He said he’s never seen that girl since that night.

What do you guys think?

You tell me how a 19th century ship can make it from Norway to South Africa in under a week, and then we can talk. Until then, no way in fucking hell. What would be the reason behind Norwegian Royalty going to South Africa be anyways? It’s not exactly like they could have just been BLOWN off course.
You’re talking 6-7 THOUSAND nautical miles from Norway to Africa, a trip that would have EASILY taken 6-8 MONTHS with the technology that was given at the time of the 19th century.
Ships during that time could MAYBE reach around 10 knots (the fastest ship EVER in the 19th century was a Clipper that reached 13 knots), and that’s assuming that you have the wind blowing in the right direction, the best seas and the best conditions of your ship. These conditions would also not have been constant, they would have been ever changing and variable as you moved along. So you might be going 10 knots for an hour, then 3 knots for another hour, etc, etc. 
PLUS, they don’t look alike. Despite the obvious differences in hair color, there is NO way that a man could grow a moustache that quickly (again, under a week). Top woman has red hair, bottom has brown. Top man has brown hair, bottom has blonde. 
Then, also, you have the issue that the ships weren’t destroyed in the same manner. (Nor were they the same type of ship; the one that Tarzan’s parents were on looks like more of a large Galleon whereas the one that Elsa and Anna’s parents was on looks like a Fluyt). You also see the ship that Tarzan’s parents abandoned burning and going beneath the waves in a fiery mass. The ship that Elsa and Anna’s parents was on capsizes on rough seas, (most likely the North Sea), there is no fire to be seen.
TL;DR: No, this didn’t happen. Stop with the stupid theory.

But they’re fun can’t you just let people have fantasies? That how new ideas get built.

New ideas when it’s “Ooh, Rapunzel and the sisters are cousins” is fun. Totally unrealistic ones like this make my head want to explode. It’s completely impossible. I realize that some people are desperate to link all of the Disney movies together, but wouldn’t it make a HELL of a lot more sense to try and link it through Jane, who is Victorian British, than this whack job of a theory with Tarzan?
Let me say this again. There is no POSSIBLE way that they could have been “blown off course” and just “happened” to land in Africa. There is no logical reason why this Royal couple would have been sailing literally to the other end of the map. This sea voyage would have taken months, and I’m saying this as someone who has a decent amount of research into nautical history in this time frame as a historian.

I don´t know if someone has already mentioned this, but I was watching Frozen when I noticed something. When the wind opens the window, the White Queen (which symbolizes the Queen Elsa) falls from the chess board. Clever detail Disney.
