beadingtheodds asked: why don't you consider yourself to be a feminist? i've watched some of your youtube videos and would've pegged you as one, so i'm just curious!
I answered this a few days ago xD I find it amazing that everyone is so surprised. Feminism as a sociological theory I don’t fully agree with; therefore I cannot label myself a feminist. It would be strange of me to do so seeing as I disagree with some of the feminist sociological arguments. Wouldn’t it?
Though just to point out; not being a feminist does not mean I deny sexism exists or that I think there isn’t a battle to be fought! <3
sad-miss-emily asked: Hi Scarlet :) my name is Sara, I'm turning 19 soon and Im trying to figure out what I want to do with my life. Its a bit scary to think about, but Im sure about one thing only and that is that I want to try a million different things before I make any decisions. So normally I have pink and purple hair (its currently brown for my mom) and would like to get tattoos and piercings and want to do alternative modeling, but I dont know how to start? Where would I look? Craigslist?
You might find this video that I made helpful :) <3
it’s so dumb that piercings and tattoos can impact your ability to find a job. employers shouldn’t be allowed to discriminate based on gender, race, sexual orientation, or level of punk-rockness
If you were about to have a surgery done, would you feel comfortable if she/he had gages and tattoos all over their face?
I mean presumably they went to medical school I literally would not give a single shit what they decided to put on their face
They don’t “have gauges”. Do you “have millimeters”?? xD
sentrea asked: Hey!! You made a comment a while ago on something you reblogged that was very feminist saying you agreed... So, why are you not feminist? I know that the word can have some negative connotations (ie. negative stereotypes about feminism, women who hate men, ect) but it's really just a belief that women are equal to men, and the desire to stop sexism against women in society. I just want to see your view on it, since I thought you would be feminist and your comment took me by surprise.
Feminism is a socialogical theory; and one that I don’t full agree with. Therefore I do not consider myself a feminist. Simple as that really. Sexism exists, it’s wrong and I wish to help fight it…but I’m not a feminist.
Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.
Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.
Before you think the girl in the middle is a strawman, let me tell you I used to be her, back in my misguided youth. I considered myself the standard to which other people should adhere. But that was stupid. It’s not up to me to tell people how to dress, and it’s much nicer to let everyone choose for themselves.
Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.
I’m not a feminist but THIS ^ <3 <3
if anyone ever asks me what tumblr is i’m gonna show them this video and just walk away
