Here were feminists, angry and hostile, hating on men and most of us did what people do when they see a woman beating on a man. We cease on an excuse: “Well he must have done something to deserve it and it must have been horrible too”. There was Patriarchy Theory to explain it all. So many people have swallowed patriarchy theory because if men hadn’t always been oppressive assholes then feminists wouldn’t have a reason to be so angry at men in the first place. The first thing we will always look for when women act in that way is what exactly they are reacting to. Patriarchy theory was the tasty rationalization most of society gobbled up to explain the overt hostility of second wave feminists towards males and Feminism’s ever-increasing advancement of women’s interests in the expense of everybody else. If those ladies are hating on men pushing to spend evermore public dollars to protect and support women, productive or dysfunctional, well they obviously have a damn good reason right? They’re obviously reacting to some injustice and the most obvious place to find that injustice is in the public sphere actors that occupy the other side of the gender binary.– Karen Straughan “How feminism conned society, and other not-so tall tales” (via carlosmigueljimenez)
She’s got it…she hit the nail on the head. The problem with Patricarchy Theory is that, if accepted, Feminism is perfectly valid. If not….well then what are they fighting for? It becomes a kind of…Begging the Question fallacy. We’re oppressed by the Patricarchy so we need Feminism…..well of course Patricarchy exists, because Feminism fights against it.

neeble asked: Have you seen all those Frozen gifs going around where people are saying that Disney made some animation mistakes (for example, Kristoff's thumb appearing to clip through Anna's waist)? Tons of people are saying that it's a huge mistake, and some others are saying that nothing is actually wrong. I want to say it looks sloppy, but I also have no idea how animation truly works. Thoughts?
A movie is made by hundreds of people working on thousands of scenes, projects will almost always have occasional issues keeping the most recent and up to date versions of a scene straight. And when scenes move from one executive branch to another it’s entirely possible for wires to get crossed and things to get shuffled. Especially on projects where things are being revised right down to the wire, where a scene might be sent back for urgent, last-minute retakes multiple times in one day.
This is entertainment being made by humans, subject to human error. If you’re scrutinizing every movie frame by frame these errors pop up all over the place, Disney, live action, everything. There’s a scene in the Little Mermaid where a ship in Ursula’s whirlpool disappears a couple frames before the end of the scene, there’s a scene in the Bonjour song in Beauty and the Beast where a woman walking in the background loops or something and pops back to her original position before the scene is over, in the recent Bluray release of Little mermaid there were two scenes in Part of Your World that got flopped with each other, you’ll see bad scene hookups all the time in animation and live action where the scene cuts to a different angle on the character and they’re standing in a totally different pose or making a different expression, things like cigarettes or candles might be different lengths as a scene jumps around because the continuity guy lost track of something, all sorts of things can get lost in communication. They’re issues that, in isolation when viewed ad infinitum in a looping gif, might seem egregious, but in reality are very difficult to notice in the actual film unless you know to look for them and are understandable things to slip through the cracks in the expansive hierarchy of hands a scene passes through before it shows up on screen.
And it’s out! At least on Steam Workshop. I’ll get on Nexus soon enough. Now all your dragons can be replaced with Thomas characters!
EDIT: NOW ON NEXUS! YAY!

there are still people who think everyone in Frozen has to be white bc EVERYONE IS WHITE IN SCANDINAVIA!!!! smh
The only non-whites in Scandinavia are people who don’t belong there, they are guests who overstayed. There’s no such thing as a non-white Scandinavian.
If a man likes thin women he’s fat shaming. If a man like larger women, he’s narcissistic and he believes it helps women’s self esteem. If a man likes women of color, he’s fetishizing their races. If a man likes white women, he’s a racist. If a man likes busty women, he’s sexualizing breasts. If a man likes small breast women, he secretly likes little girls. But if a woman holds any of the same standards, it’s empowering. That’s what feminism taught me.– Anonymous (via why-we-dont-need-feminism) Via
