heres some advice that wasnt asked for: if someone says they youve hurt/insulted/offended them you do not have the right to judge whether or not you think they SHOULD be hurt bc they didnt choose to be offended but you did choose to say something offensive so apologize and move on
but none of that 'im sorry if you were offended' bullshit thats so patronizing thats like if you physically harmed someone and said 'im sorry if you felt any pain' like ??? idk sorry to rant im just done with people blaming their actions on people being too "politically correct" but feel free to comment your own thoughts (pc: cwote on tumblr)
My podcast interview in the University of Melbourne's Talking Indonesia on the discourses around sexuality, the conservative turn, & women’s activism in Indonesia: http://indonesiaatmelbourne.unimelb.edu.au/talking-indonesia-women-gender-and-activism/
I mentioned @magdaleneid as an example of feminist digital media activism.
Intro from the host, Jemma Purdey: “What is the present state of the women’s movement in Indonesia? Why have sexuality and the female body continued to be sites for contestation and national anxiety? How have women and other marginalised groups like the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community responded to the conservative turn? In this week’s podcast I explore these issues with Dr Intan Paramaditha, a lecturer at Macquarie University.”
Repost from @getbehind.us
Today we stand in solidarity with the victims of sexual assault. 1 in 5 women will be sexually assaulted in her lifetime.
I recently directed a social activism video titled #GETBEHINDUS which addresses many issues women face in our daily lives.
THIS IS THE IMAGE THAT STARTED IT ALL.
@Regrann from @fat_hippie_vegan - This cow was on her way to slaughter in another country, she did not make it to the slaughter house, she got too sick so they cut open her stomach and threw her into the ocean. They cut open her stomach so she would sink. This is fucking terrible and no one should ever have to go through this, and the people who did this to her, I hope they suffer greatly. This is why we are vegan! This is why we don't consume meat and dairy. We love animals, so we don't eat them, we don't pay for people to treat animals this way. Go vegan, cut out all animal products, and make this world a better place, let's have a peaceful planet, where we treat all other beings on this planet with respect. ☼☾❁♡ #dairy#sad
