Representation

‘Well, there was no 33 year old blond left-handed short dyslexic person in this story, so I had no one to identify with.' For children, representation is the most beautiful thing we can do. To them, Obama's Obama, not the first African-American President. They'll notice he's black, but to them it won't be as dramatic as it was for us.

Tone Policing and why I won’t calm down.

If it's an issue I care about, I'm going to have emotions involving it. And I'm going to talk fast, and I'm going to be angry. Or sad. Or happy.

Ironic Misandry

Ironic Misandry is a movement that began from the misogynistic whiners that attacked feminism. Misandry is childish- it exaggerates women equality to a point where it simply equals the destruction of all men. Across social media, young women identify as misandrists, because it gives them an entry into the feminist viewpoint without facing the constant hatred of old, established feminists and the notions they've spread. Misandry, at its heart, is a young movement, by young people, and helps them differentiate between the smart, in-the-know men, and the misogynists that will whine about how stupid the 'Male Tears' mug they're drinking out of is.
