OK, I’m probably not the first to acknowledge this, but how fucked up is it, that we even have the expression “daddy issues”? There are whole generations of women who have been screwed over by their fathers— no, let’s phrase that differently: There are whole generations of men who have screwed…
Because fuck all women are capable mothers. No, no they’re not.
Wow, I didn’t actually expect anyone to read this? So the language is a bit harsh, born of my own frustration. But to pull this back onto a plane of rational discussion: Yes, of course not all women are capable mothers. But that’s not what this is about. My point is that a certain generation of men have regularly been such poor fathers that there is a term documenting that. And I’m sure there are structural/systemic reasons for this, like the gender roles of that time, the way men were supposed to go work all day and thus didn’t have a lot of time with their kids, the way they were told that they were owned a family that functioned seamlessly and got angry when it didn’t, etc. But it happened, and a lot of people (not only girls) I know are suffering because of it, and people are playing it for laughs. I don’t think that’s happening with mothers a lot.
Spray-on solar cells take less energy to make and can be put on everything from jeans to cars.
Scientists are one step closer to spray-on solar power. Instead of traditional bulky solar cells encased in glass—which can be awkward to put in plac…
"Facial-recognition technology is quickly becoming a mainstay of commercial and government surveillance systems. While it can provide benefits in automation and security, it is also a threat to privacy. Sophisticated algorithms can already extract information about your gender, age and even mood from a single image, and then link those physical attributes to commercial or government databases."

OK, I’m probably not the first to acknowledge this, but how fucked up is it, that we even have the expression “daddy issues”? There are whole generations of women who have been screwed over by their fathers— no, let’s phrase that differently: There are whole generations of men who have screwed over their own children in horrible ways, but we don’t focus on them - we focus on their victims by making them a running gag, a joke for characters like Charly Harper and Barney Stinson to prey on.
Don’t talk to me about how we don’t need feminism until the men of the world have proven that they can raise a generation of daughters (and sons) without hurting them in the process.
My mistrust [of men] is not, as one might expect, primarily a result of the violent acts done on my body, nor the vicious humiliations done to my dignity. It is, instead, born of the multitude of mundane betrayals that mark my every relationship with a man—the casual rape joke, the use of a female slur, the careless demonization of the feminine in everyday conversation, the accusations of overreaction, the eye rolling and exasperated sighs in response to polite requests to please not use misogynist epithets in my presence.
Source on that quote is Melissa McEwan, since no one bothered to credit her for it.
Just want to add that I mistrust most people for this exact reason. Some of the worst calculated, ongoing misogynist bullying in my life happened in ~women only~ spaces. Men just are the only group who truly benefit from all this crap so it’s like five times as baffling but there ya go. When “women only” is treated like a sanctuary from misogyny I laugh and go hang out alone by myself. With men I just know it’s coming no matter what.
