Sorry to reblog from the source, but I thought the chain of comments was rather unnecessary. All that needs to be said is that this documentary examines gender inequality and how patriarchy contributes negatively to our society.
This is a feminist issue.
And anyone on Tumblr who’s too close-minded to recognize it as such due to a nonsensical blanketed hatred of men’s issues need to re-evaluate their motives.
THESE ARE REAL AND HORRIBLE MALE ISSUES CAUSED BY THE PATRIARCHY. IF YOURE FEMINIST, THESE SHOULD ANGER YOU. IF YOU’RE NOT, HERES ANOTHER REASON TO SUPPORT THE MOVEMENT.
have I already reblogged this? don’t give a fuck.
The patriarchy hurts everyone.
I WANNA MENTION THIS BECAUSE EVERY TIME SOMEONE MENTIONS THIS THING ABOUT SUICIDE I FEEL I SHOULD BUT IN
MORE WOMEN ATTEMPT SUICIDE
MORE MEN SUCCEED
Women are more likely to use non-lethal methods such as pills while men tend to use firearms.
Something to keep in mind.
I need feminism because the father of my children thinks his depression is invalid because he is male.
I need feminism because my depression damn near consumed me and ended my life
I honestly am not thrilled that Naoko Takeuchi is working on Sailor Moon Crystal. I dislike a lot of the radically feminist tones of Crystal (I.e., the very blatantly feminist theme song, Tuxedo Mask being written out whenever possible), which I can only assume were her doing.

I am legit crying with laughter.
Like, who has EVER looked at Sailor Moon and thought “nope, nothing feminist about this here story all about women who are strong and capable and kick ass in heels and nail polish.”?
And of course, Tuxedo Mask being written out of everything totally explains why he’s in every episode and gives Sailor Moon advice and strength, yup yup.
"I’m not thrilled that the creator of Sailor Moon is working on Sailor Moon"
op was apparently unaware that sailor moon is an anime about girls for girls and that mamoru has been a usless angst lump since 1991
THIS IS SO FUNNY PLEASE BE A TROLL
If not then there is no hope for this person, because then they’re basically like:
HOW DARE THE CREATOR HAVE A SAY IN THEIR ADAPTATION. HOW DARE THEY MAKE TUXEDO MASK’S ROLE THE SAME AS IN THE MANGA AND NOT ADD ANYTHING. “WE ARE NOT HELPLESS GIRLS WHO NEED A PRINCE”? THAT IS TOO RADICALLY FEMINIST FOR ME. HOW DARE GIRLS BE HEROES AND NOT RELY ON MEN!
"FUCKIN THANKS I’M SO SICK OF PEOPLE TELLING ME MENTAL DISORDERS ARE A PART OF YOU YOU SHOULD ACCEPT THEY’RE NOT FUN I WANT THEM GONE THANKS"
that’s some fucking beautiful internalized ableism you’ve got there
This is the worst attitude on tumblr. Wanting to overcome your mental illness is not ableist. Wanting to learn how to become happy, hell, to become functional, despite your drawbacks, to learn how to better yourself and your quality of life and deal with your anxiety or depression or whatever you may have to grapple with isn’t frikkin’ ableism.
You should never hate or shame the part of yourself that has these aspects, it’ll only feed your anxieties and depression, but you shouldn’t coddle and victimize yourself either, especially while thinking you’re somehow better for doing so? Because all you’re doing is putting down those who have decided to face and deal with the hardest parts of themselves.
Obviously it’s each individuals choice whether they want to start learning how to manage their disorder or not, it’s your life. But don’t act like those who don’t want to be a pent up ball of high strung emotion every waking minute of their life are somehow bigots and self-hating.
I think the issue here is the confusion over the word ‘accept’.
Yes, it is important for your mental health to accept you have a disorder. Denying it only makes the situation worse, and makes the wall you will eventually hit bring you down harder. And more difficult to get up from (Take it from someone who pushed herself through a masters degree and then fell apart on her first career job. Not fun.)
But 'yes, I have a mental disorder/issue/problem' and ‘it’ll always be hard, so why try getting better’ are two very different things, and where tumblr tends to trip up on. Acceptance doesn’t mean giving up on self improvement. Or working to get better. It just you accept that hey, I have this problem, it’ll be something I need to work on. And it may take me longer than most, and I may have bad days, but that’s okay. I accept my issues and will work with them, not against them.
Do things at your own pace, and don’t sell yourself short for what you are capable of, even if it takes time. Even if it’s hard. Because you can do it /o/
