grown. ass. men.
you scared she gonna strike out yr precious baby boy? OH TOO LATE.
they were doing a special on her on one of the news channels at the gym. i didnt have the headphones so i couldnt hear the story, but one of the photos they showed was of a little girl in the crowd holding up a sign that said “I want to throw like a girl.” For every pathetic, insecure grown man who is threatened by this amazingly talented girl, hopefully there is another little girl who is inspired. But that she has to put up wit this kind of abuse even though she is OBJECTIVELY the best pitcher in the league right now and can throw a ball SEVENTY MILES PER HOUR is absolutely uncalled for. She is truly phenomenal, and those dads can all go eat shit and live

people assume ‘critical’ is a synonym for negativity, but in sociology we actually refer to theorists like Marx as an ‘optimist’ because he believed the world could change and even had a plan for how to achieve it. uncritical people are considered pessimists because they don’t analyse what can be changed and how to do it. whether or not you agree with critical people, don’t suddenly assume they’re negative pessimists. it’s FAR from the truth.

femininity is a social construct built and upheld by corporations who want you to think they’re empowering you by selling you lipstick.
babies are not born wanting to buy lipstick. it’s something they’re taught.
gender started out as an invention to oppress women and keep men on top and now it’s being upheld in modern activism because someone somewhere along the line realized they could profit from it.
wake the fuck up and start thinking for yourself.
Modern femininity is most definitely upheld by corporations, but please remember that femininity and feminine performance have always been the mechanism by which gender roles subordinate women: corsets, hoop skirts, bustles, farthingales, lead makeup, towering wigs, foot binding, soft slippers and later high heels, and on and on through every beauty practice that ranged from impractical to physically damaging to straight-up lethal were designed to keep women immobile, slow, and docile.
