    Joss Whedon and George R. R. Martin walk into a bar. Everybody you love dies,
    Then Steven Moffat walks in. Everybody comes back to life without explanation, re-affirms their heterosexuality, flirts with the main character and the feminist movement is set back 50 years

  5. "[TW: rape]
    We do know something about most men who rape. For example, numerous studies have found that while they tend to be more emotionally constricted than nonaggressive men, and are often angry and hostile to women, most of them are psychologically “normal.” The psychologist David Lisak points out that the old stereotype of the rapist was derived in part from extensive studies with incarcerated rapists, many of whom committed acts of grievous violence against their victims, who were often strangers. But according to Lisak, research over the past twenty years clearly demonstrates that the vast majority of rapes are perpetrated by what he calls “undetected rapists,” and they usually know their victims. Undetected rapists are men who typically behave in stereotypically masculine ways, see sex as conquest, and are hypersensitive to any perceived slight against their manhood. But they are not crazy, and they are not sociopaths. “There is simply no evidence, save the rape itself,” Katharine Baker writes in the Harvard Law Review, “suggesting that all or even most rapists are objectively depraved.” Chillingly, she goes on to say that given the social norms that encourage it, there is evidence that rape is “culturally dictated, not culturally deviant.”"

About

I am a feminist. That doesn't mean I don't shave my legs, don't put on mascara, or don't wear short skirts. It doesn't mean I am a lesbian, a prude, or am simply too unattractive to get a man. It doesn't mean I'm whiny or that I'm a bitch. It does not mean I hate men. It doesn't mean that I'm not a man. It also doesn't mean that I'm not these things either. The one thing it does mean is that I strive for equality between men and women.
