May the fourth be with you
The Fourth Doctor, that is.
As long as I can’t watch an episode of a popular sitcom without having to sit through multiple sexist comments or “jokes”, I am a feminist.
As long as women have to face the rational fear of being sexually assaulted every time they walk home past dark while men don’t, I am a feminist.
As long as misogyny exists in any country in this world, I am a feminist.
As long as women are being raped, then stoned to death or forced to marry their rapist, I am a feminist.
As long as companies promote men to manager when there are women who are equally or better qualified, because they find that men look more authoritative, I am a feminist.
As long as women (her choice of clothes, her friendly nature, her weakness, her choice to drink alcohol) get blamed when men rape them, I am a feminist.
As long as women’s opinions on online social networks are dismissed with phrases like “tits or gtfo”, “get back to the kitchen”, “are you pms’ing?”, I am a feminist.
As long as dressing like a woman is degrading for men and as long as men are insulted with phrases like “you throw like a woman”, clearly implying that being like a woman is shameful, I am a feminist.
As long as both men and women are expected to work, but taking care of children and the household are still largely considered a woman’s jobs, I am a feminist.
As long as boys and girls are treated differently, expected to act differently, and surrounded by different toys and colours from the day they are born, I am a feminist.
As long as topless women aren’t allowed in public unless they’re on the cover of a men’s magazine, I am a feminist.
As long as women who have sex frequently are generally told they are “sluts”, “lacking self-respect” and “lacking morals” by both men and women, while men who frequently have sex are “just being men” and it’s “natural for them”, I am a feminist.
As long as there are places where women have to pay more for health insurance than men, I am a feminist.
As long as men experience situations with equal gender representation as female-dominated, and don’t consider a group discussion equal unless there are significantly more men than women participants (as has been proven), I am a feminist.

As long as the word feminism (“the movement aimed at equal rights for women”) has a negative connotation, I am a feminist.

Swing and a miss. Damn diagonal pans. Up for adoption if anyone thinks they can make something of it.
I’ve done almost nothing on this blog in over 2 months…
And yet one of those Chibiusa pictures has gained over 1,000 new notes and is still going…
(I think I’ve done this properly. If I have, then clicking the image will take you to the full size version. I was ready to rant about fucking diagonal pans and how I hate them, but then got blindsided by the newest site changes. Bleh.)
ETA: Evidently I haven’t done it properly. How do I make a click-through link on this stupid thing?!?!
EDIT2: Well, for now the link to full size is in the source. If anyone knows how to make a click-through link in this new layout, put it in my ask.
The fuck is this new posting thing? When did it happen? This is disgusting. Give me the old one back. I don’t like this at all. I don’t know how to use this stupid thing. The old one was perfectly fine! Give it back!

If after all of that I’ve learned one thing, it’s this: … You guys really love Chibiusa.
I’ve had a feeling for a while now that the last one would be my first post to break 1,000 notes and now it has. Thanks for that. I really am glad when I see signs that people enjoy what I’m doing here.
I know the posts have been few and far between lately. There are several reasons for that, but I am still hoping to complete the archive…eventually. I’m also still hoping to do caps for the new anime at some point in the future. I make no promises about when these things will happen, but they will happen.
In the meantime, enjoy what’s here. I try to keep the sidebar of my page filled with links for easily browsing previous posts. And because this ask comes up frequently, I’ll just put out this reminder that the screencaps are here to be used in any way you see fit. I’ll only point out that I enjoy it when people hit the “like” button on the episode posts so I know that people appreciate my time and energy.
Thanks for your time. Keep calm and keep scrolling.
