Alice in Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland' is dreaming and there is no way for me as a reader to tell what physical abilities she may have awake; could Alice have a physical disability? As a reader with Cerebral Palsy I think yes, in this paper I will interpret Alice as disabled.
There are some passages that I find interesting as they are in accordance with my theory. The way the Caucus Race is described is "All the party were placed along the course here and there. There was no 'One, two, three, and away' but they began running when they liked and left off when they liked..."...

Chauvinism and Masculinism, two of the biggest anti-feminism "movements" alive and rampant in this 일 and age. Since the beginning of these movements, the Feminist image has been violated to the point that even hearing the word "Feminist" brings up some ugly descriptions in the human psyche: fat, unattractive, masculine women who can't find a decent husband that want to create misery for all like they feel 의해 lying about what women really want (like 아기 and husbands) and emasculating men, 또는 a big system of corporate tools brainwashed 의해 powerful liberals to decimate the human race,

Kurt Cobain- The Feminist

by Kat Broderick

The late Kurt Cobain was surprisingly, an avid member of the feminist community. Here are some of his 링그 to activism and his ties to the feminist agenda.

If generation X had a king it would be Kurt Cobain. His devil may care attitude arguably defined a generation of people. His haunting melodies and desperate screams spoke to youth disenchanted with societies’ expectations. He cared about a...

Hello. It's my first time 글쓰기 an article. Well, have 당신 ever been bullied 또는 harassed 의해 men online? Have they ever criticized 당신 for stating your opinion on the internet, whether it be on social media like Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, 또는 Youtube? And how does that make 당신 feel?

It happened to me many times. That aside, let's talk a little bit about it. I feel that it originated from the non-technological world, where assertive men were considered "driven," "motivated," etc. while assertive women were called "b*tchy," "rude," 또는 even worse--- "bratty" 또는 "immature," when in reality,...

"I’ve been having an argument for days with this guy on 인터넷무비 데이타베이스 about promiscuous people not asking for rape (on the cape fear page) and he’s like said some pretty ridiculous sh*t…here are some examples:

“Looks like 당신 dig into a lot of feminist website to empower yourself.”

“Hence I don’t agree with the whole martial rape. The newest law in Afghanistan that obliges women to give their husbands sex at least 4 times a week. I would say that is a progressive law.”

“Understand this, rape will always exist in human society. It is a 쓴, 쓰라린 과일 of evolution....

Have 당신 ever been offended 의해 those stereotypes? Well, I get offended pretty easily 의해 the gender stereotypes. Whenever I get offended I would complain and stop watching 또는 playing the game altogether. Nearly all 영화 and tv shows and even the video games are made 의해 sexist men who think that women are not as capable as women! Let's look at one example, the movie Gremlins. It may be funny, but can be sexist. I hate that movie. It portrays women as weak, cowardly, helpless, and over FUCKING dependent! And males as too overprotective and muscly and too fucking irresistable! Gosh, I hate when...

“THIS PICTURE WILL NOT CHANGE THE WORLD, BUT I STILL NEED FEMINISM AND I’M GOING TO REALLY, REALLY TELL 당신 WHY”:

-Because I got called a whore for wearing a short plaid 치마 when I was 10

-Because black girls’ names became my classmates’ 가장 좋아하는 “joke” when I was 11

Look at all of the stereotypes that existed ever since the beginning of time! They're so toxic and so degrading!

Stereotype 1: Every woman needs a man (which is an issue in many high schools, even colleges and such).

Stereotype 2: All women need rescuing and constant protection.

Stereotype 3: A woman who stands up for herself is considered b*tchy, bossy, and unladylike.

Stereotype 4: A woman is supposed to be submissive and f*cking cowardly! (which is so common)

Stereotype 5: All women are less intellegent, 더 많이 foolish, and can't learn anything.

Stereotype 6: Women are the weakest of the weak....

If i have sex with someone I am a massive slut.
If he has sex with someone...He's awesome.

If i get raped i "deserve it" for dressing seductively.
If he gets raped he is a victim of assault.

If I do not want sex i am a uptight, harpy-bitch.
If he does not want sex he is simply doing his own thing.

If i ask for a raise I am being demanding and agressive.
If he asks for a raise he is being assertive and ambitious.

It stared with a simple premise; a woman playing Peter Pan; Girls 사랑 that! Something different happened, during "Ugg-A-Wugg" I couldn't understand them, which was both shocking and intriguing. Fortunately as a person with Cerebral Palsy I knew just what to do. I Promised to Help the Cast if they needed it. 12 years later "Peter Pan Live!" Made changes to "Ugg-A-Wugg" and it caused me to feel A LOT of guilt, and self-hated, But NBC had upset the Native Americans who expressed themselves on #NotYourTigerLily and I stated tweeting there to. My tweets got into the 상단, 맨 위로 Tweets my confidence grew....

1. MYTH: Legalizing prostitution gets rid of its criminal elements - pimps and traffickers.
FACT: Legalizing prostitution benefits pimps and traffickers. It also benefits johns.

2. MYTH: Men need sex therefore prostitution must exist. Prostitution is a natural form of human sexuality
FACT: The sex of prostitution is not “sex” for women in it. Most men who use women in prostitution have other sexual partners.

3. MYTH: Prostitution is sexual liberation
FACT: Prostitution is sexual exploitation.

4. MYTH Women choose to enter prostitution. It’s better to choose to make lots of money as a prostitute...

Nicole Kidman: We Must Support Women

Nicole Kidman has been “brought to her knees” 의해 tales of abuse from some women.

The actress is a UN Goodwill Ambassador who has done a lot of work with females. She is determined to do all she can to help victims of abuse.

“I’ve been to Haiti and Kosovo and to shelters all over the world. The things I’ve seen and the stories I’ve heard just bring me to my knees,” she told the February edition of UK magazine InStyle. “We are working to pass new laws and to make it OK for women to step 앞으로 and speak about abuses, knowing they will have...

Now i'm what I would like to call an average guy. I also like to think that I'm open minded and willing to hear any argument as long as that argument is backed up with cold hard facts.
Now as a guy i personally don't have any experience of any of the issues normally expressed 의해 the feminist movement so my thoughts and opinions are always formed from 초 hand 또는 third hand experience (reading articles, watching YouTube 비디오 etc.)
Now i'm sure some of 당신 are asking yourself why are 당신 asking this? Well the answer is as follows.

“Wherever there is a human being, I see God-given rights inherent in that being, whatever may be the sex 또는 complexion” -- William Lloyd Garrison

"Nothing can be 더 많이 absurd than the practice that prevails in our country of men and women not following the same pursuits with all their strengths and with one mind, for thus, the state instead of being whole is reduced to half."
--Plato

"[A] woman should have every honorable motive to exertion which is enjoyed 의해 man, to the full extent of her capacities and endowments. The case is too plain for argument. Nature has given woman the same powers,...

'Feminazi' is the demonization of feminism via comparing the woman's rights movement to Adolf Hitler.

Needless to say, it is the most incompetent and insensitive terminology refering to:

A. The victims who suffered tremendously under Hitler's regime during WW2.
B. Feminism and how misunderstood it's many messages are today in modern society.

So even if 당신 aren't a feminist, 또는 maybe even not even pro-feminist (which i can assure 당신 are completely different things), 당신 most definately shouldn't tolerate this fad. Here are four, quick, clear reasons simply to start 당신 off. I could go on for...

Not too long ago, I’ve been exploring the recesses of the Internet for some discussion based on Feminism-from websites dedicated to only the talk of Feminism to YouTube 비디오 and their comments, knowing fully well that many of the things I will view will be made 의해 anti-Feminists. My expectations were only half-disappointed. I did expect the usual “Feminists are the most sexist, misandrist, selfish manginas and 레즈비언 of the planet,” but I didn’t expect this: “black women shouldn’t have involved themselves in the white woman’s evil movement.”

Alright, listen up, men’s rights people. 당신 say 당신 want to improve the lives of all men, to protect their rights. Well, I have a challenge for you: Can 당신 stand up for the male individuals who act feminine?

It’s no secret that men who show signs of anything associated with femininity are looked down upon. Effeminate men are made the butt of jokes all the time in the media and in real life. Just tonight I watched Date Night, where the male lead is described as androgynous and hilarity ensues as he is forced to agree with that. 더 많이 than jokes, such men and boys are frequently the victims...

Here are some women empowerment 인용구 that I like:

Women sleep on the right side of the 침대 because even while sleeping they have to be right! ~Author unknown

I'm an excellent housekeeper. Everytime I get a divorce, I keep the house. ~Zsa Zsa Gabor

In this world 당신 have to be stronger than a man, 당신 have to be a wo-man! ~AVPM

Anything men can do, women can do better, plus in heels.

Men, their rights, and nothing more; women, their rights, and nothing less. ~Susan B. Anthony

History is herstory, too. ~Author unknown

I'd much rather be a woman than a man. Women can cry, they can wear cute clothes, and they are the first to be rescued off of sinking ships.

Man has will, but woman has her way.

Women get the last word in every argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Women are scientifically proven to be right even when they are wrong.

A lot of 당신 have probably witnessed the video for Katy Perry's part of me in which she discovers her boyfriend cheating, does a Britney and joins the armed forces in a bid to get over her turmoil and shoot little 아프가니스탄 사람, 아프가니스탄 children in the face.

At first sights, this is a immaculate example of feminism in the works: A young, pretty girl finds the strength to defy her boyfriend's infidelities and find her own way in life without him. It's hard imagining Perry doing anything apart from mess around with wigs and giggle...
