What Feminism Is

tumblr_mapbfd0ALz1rxxspbo1_1280

That is all.

Except for the transphobia thing, some areas of feminism are pretty transphobic.  As with many movements, there are always small factions that let the side down.  Just because some people in a movement act/believe a certain way, doesn’t mean that’s true for all involved.  It’s like how not all Christians are fundamentalist evangelicals, and not all who practice Islam are terrorists.  That’s what this was pointing at, because not all feminists are transphobic, though some, unfortunately, are.

IMO, the motivation behind feminism should be equality in all areas, for everyone, period.  My philosophy, everyone deserves to do whatever the hell they want, as long as their actions don’t take away from the freedoms of others, and respect the way other people use their freedom, even if you don’t agree with it.

There are so many who have no respect for others as equal human beings.  It will be the downfall of us all.

While Timothy Leary conducted some pretty ethically questionable experiments with psychedelics (one and two), he did have some good perspectives on life, and how people live theirs.

Constantly feeling on the outside.  No matter how hard you try to fit in, it only ends up making you feel even more excluded.  You’re sure that you’re the only one on this pale blue dot who feels this way.

But you know what?  There are others out there.  Others who think and feel the same way you do.  That get who you are.  They may not be as numerous as those ‘normal’ people seem to be, but they’re out there.  You’ll never find them if you just stay inside your self-constructed box, struggling to contain the real you.

Save yourself, before you crush the real you out of existence.

Ok, this is now officially my new favourite comic.  The way he takes philosophical ideas and those who developed those ideas and illustrates them in such a way that just makes you get it.  Gav transforms philosophy into something that’s highly accessible.  Though I may be biased, I do have a soft spot for philosophy after all.

Above is just a snippet of the full adaptation of Carl Sagan’s famous quote.  Please be sure to click-through so Gav gets the credit he is due.

This is what I need to remember. This is my goal, why I’m still bothering with being a student, what makes it all worth it.

H/T Kate or Die!

I didn’t even know these comics existed until I came across Kate’s post on Tumblr.  It’s definitely being added to my regular reading list.
