instead of counting sheep at night, count the number of times you can repeat “my life is dope and i do dope shit” before drifting into dreams full of kanye level self-confidence
P!nk talking about Stupid Girls [2/2]
Don’t play dumb, even if they want you to.
Props to her for pointing out problematic behavior without putting down the women in general.
I’ve seen people complaining that she’s just doing the ‘not like other girls trope’ and no, I don’t think so. Maybe on the surface it can be read that way, but it’s a stretch.
I remember they did an episode of Oprah with Pink about this song and the audience was literally blocked full of young women with whom Pink did a q&a.
I’ll never forget one young girl who stood up and said ‘but what if guys don’t like me if I don’t act dumb?’
You could *SEE* Pink holding back the ‘then fuck ‘em, they’re not worth it’. She ended up giving a more gentle answer that boiled down that, but the moment stuck with me.
Pink isn’t condemning girls for wanting to be feminine. She isn’t condemning girls for liking to get their hair done or anything we consider ‘traditionally feminine’.
She’s going after an industry that infantilizes young women and teaches them their worth is in their cup size.
And, yes, she is calling out the women who go along with and enable it.
And that’s important. It’s all bad enough the way society the treats us, but to go along with it and, worse, teach young girls that this is what owning your sexuality looks like, giving control of it to old white men in suits…
We might not find it comfortable to hear it, but damn someone has to say it.
when im a parent i won’t take my kid’s electronics when they get in trouble i’ll just take the charger so i can watch the fear in their eyes as they use it less and less while the battery slowly begins to run out
EXCEPT THIS ISNT JUST A FUNNY HAHA SILLY HEADLINE GUYS
this is really important and is a really great program that teaches skills to inmates and allows them to basically receive group therapy while they are simultaneously learning a craft
IT IS ALSO REALLY RADICAL BECAUSE IT BREAKS NOT ONLY THE STEREOTYPE THAT INMATES ARE INCAPABLE OF BEING DECENT HUMAN BEINGS WHO CAN TALK OUT THEIR ISSUES AND HEAL AND BE FUNCTIONING MEMBERS OF SOCIETY BUT IT ALSO SHOWS THAT TRADITIONALLY GENDERED HOBBIES LIKE KNITTING ARENT JUST “FOR WOMEN” AND ARE ENJOYABLE FOR EVERYONE.
here is an from the above article
They started by knitting comfort dolls, which they gave to children removed from their homes because of domestic issues. Then they moved on to hats for kids at the inner-city elementary school many of the prisoners attended, Zwerling says. “If you look at them, they’re covered with tattoos, they’re rough looking, and many of the young guys don’t have all their teeth,” she says. “But it doesn’t feel rough. They’re very respectful and grateful and very happy to knit.”
THEY KNIT COMFORT ITEMS FOR ABUSED KIDS. THEY KNIT HATS FOR INNER-CITY CHILDREN.
this is a good program and i really hope that people actually look into it rather than just posting the headline and a silly image attached ok
