Karen Healey: Writes Things

I am an author of young adult novels, including WHEN WE WAKE and the sequel, WHILE WE RUN, GUARDIAN OF THE DEAD, and THE SHATTERING.

I love sleep, apples and tripartite sentences.

I am also a teacher. Hi, students! No, I will not follow you back. Or friend you on Facebook. It's not personal, you're lovely.

All opinions reblogged from others are their opinions. All opinions posted by me are mine, and should not be taken as representing my school or my publishers.

“The frightening thing is that, like most of their other campaigns against women, they see themselves as just warriors fighting for what’s right. This is primarily because they firmly believe that any woman who speaks up on women’s issues is completely disingenuous and only doing it for the purposes of self-promotion, and that any man who does is looking to get laid, because they actually cannot possibly imagine a scenario in which someone would genuinely give a shit about women.
 
Members of this board, as well as “Men’s Rights Activists” in general, tend to go apoplectic at even the most mild implications that women might be human beings. For them, this is simply “not allowed” and must be punished swiftly and severely, as they appear to believe that feminism is the one obstacle in the way of all these pathetic neckbeards getting their pick of supermodel girlfriends who obey their every whim. The goal is to make it as uncomfortable to speak out about misogyny and women’s issues as possible, which is why they go to the wall in terms of harassing women like Emma Watson. At the end of the day, this is the crux of it. It would be sad if it weren’t so vile.”

Emma Watson threatened with nude photo leak over UN speech on gender equality

Because of course she was.

do you ever think about how when garrett was trying to get ward to join hydra one of the things he said was that it would teach him how to be a man

and then do you think about how none of the hydra agents we’ve seen are women. even the hydra extra goons are all men. 

i think the only female hydra-affiliated character is also the only non-white hydra character that we know of (correct me if i’m wrong on this) - raina, and she didn’t join hydra, she signed up to follow a man she thought was omniscient 

i don’t know where i’m going with this i just 

even though their rhetoric is not overtly racialized or gendered bc they need to be metaphorical comic book supervillains - hydra is an org. that’s about eliminating “weakness” and creating a new order and keeping power in the hands of the white men that run it 

skye was very right, they’re still fucking nazis
