Anonymous said: You can't just treat women like they're all equally oppressed. Some women have it worse than others and their needs take priority. You're comment was like if someone got pissed off at a doctor because they decided to treat someone who had been shot in the torso before treating someone who had their legs broken. I really don't understand the issue here, giving attention to the women who's needs are most dire has never had any negative effect on women that aren't as bad off.
Well that’s a really stupid analogy because you can die from a broken leg pretty quickly actually. And some gun wounds may only be flesh wounds I.e. to the torso depending on where it is.
I’m not going to argue with everyone over this. I can have my own opinion. We’re talking about in sci fi number one which is presumably western most likely. So my striving for all women to be treated equally does not diminish this. I don’t need to throw labels around constantly and this is the end of it. I won’t reply to anything else.
Okay then: if I’m not allowed to comment on other people’s posts now here’s my own goddamn post if it appeases you.
I would like to see more women in sci fi as a whole. Women who are bot stereotypes, who are not scantily clad all the time, oversexualised and constantly damsels. All women. I don’t care if they’re black or Asian or trans or asexual, bisexual, mixed race. I want all of them to be there whatever. I want the same to happen to guys. I don’t care what they look like or who they like I want well rounded characters whose sexuality or race isn’t their principle characteristic. They’re just people at the end of the day and should all be treated the same in my eyes: as humans. From an anthropological prospective I want it to be an accurate proportionate number of people to reality if you’re going for realism. Don’t sensationalise everyone’s sexuality and have token characters. That’s so much worse.
Feel free to change my post however you want for your opinion. Because at the end of the day, you can add to it if it’s on your blog and I won’t care. I’m not part of a club about anything. Nothing is exclusive or intellectual property. I’m using my knowledge of my own degree so I’m not going to argue about it either. I’m sorry for apparently offending everyone by commenting on someone else’s post. Here’s my post you wanted me to write instead.
Awesome. End of. No more arguing.
The huge amount of pressure on young girls to let their boyfriends get away with everything and not to stand up for themselves, lest they stop being a ‘chill girlfriend’ and instead become a horrible, controlling harpy is such bullshit.
Stop teaching young girls that demanding to be treated with respect and courtesy makes them shrill, over-emotional, or unworthy of listening to.
