I honestly think people forget that the church and state are supposed to be separate. Give me one non-religious reason against same sex marriage. One non-religious reason against stem cell research. One non-religious reason against safe abortions. Go ahead.
I’ve been saying this for YEARS.
It’s not that they forget. It’s that they don’t want it to be true. They want to overturn that. They want a theocracy.
Yes, that’s explicit; the fundamentalist movement does not support or accept separation of the two.
594. The town of Chernobyl is actually a wizarding city but is disguised with an anti-muggle charm.
…We gonna talk about the 41 people who died as an immediate result of the Chernobyl disaster and the literally thousands of people who have developed cancer that may be related to it?
Because that seems like a lot of human life to disregard for a cute headcanon…
tell a straight ally that you don’t think straight people should go to gay bars

I know some girls, straight or otherwise, go to avoid being harassed by guys, which seems okay to me

"i do what i want" sounds really rebellious and cool but what i want to do is avoid conflict and stay in my room
The idea that men are hilariously incompetent at housework and not naturally inclined to like children is not an example of men being “oppressed”, it is a deliberate construction that exempts men from the hard, boring work of running a household and looking after children.
This kind of nuclear family model where mommy stays home and daddy works was literally conceptualized to oppress women; not only is it a way to control women and maintain their dependency on their husbands, but its a reduction in labor costs — or free labor — because women do not receive a wage for doing these things since they have been normalized culturally as, “women’s work.”
It also serves as a cover for the work a woman does outside of their home and denounces anything she does as a “hobby” or w/e because she is ultimately a ~housewife~ i.e. nanny, cook, maid, chauffeur, accountant, sex worker (for husband), personal shopper, and more. Like, women are literally 2/3 of the world’s labor force and they have to do all that shit too?
Everything about the housewife role defines capitalism’s relevance (or contribution) to sex-based oppression so literally anyone that supports capitalism is contradicting themselves if they also maintain they support ~equality~.
and remember that capitalism has always relied on the presence of free or significantly-below-normal-cost labour. inadequate recompense of workers is not enough. capitalism was built on colonial slavery practices (not just the transatlantic slave trade; enslavement of indigenous peoples was carried out around the globe, and the colonial powers at home enslaved their ‘unwilling poor’ in workhouses). today we have prison labour, and migrant workers whose bosses exploit their tenuous immigration status to force down pay and conditions. and underpinning all of this continues women’s ‘second shift’ of domestic labour, because don’t forget that women have always worked outside the home, that women too were enslaved and did the same backbreaking labour as men, but have always also been expected to come home and clean and cook and most importantly of all bear and raise the next generation of

Yeah those things are totally worth catastrophic climate change and millions of hungry children.
Why do people think capitalism is the only situation under which cultural objects can be produced anyway?
