Today’s Gender of the Day is : Betty White aggressively eating a hot dog.
Person: I’m a woman and I don’t need feminism
What she’s actually saying:
- My life is perfectly okay and I don’t really care what other women go through
- I think feminists are just whiny and can’t take jokes that perpetuate harmful stereotypes
- I believe that people are just obsessed with political correctness
- I am blind to the fact that there are still problems faced by women
- I have forgotten that feminism gave women rights such as the right to vote
- I have no idea that feminism is an egalitarian movement that fights for everyone’s rights regardless of sex, gender, sexuality, race, religion, nationality, and ethnicity but mostly focuses on women’s rights.
- I am more concerned about semantics rather than human rights
- I can’t distinguish between real feminists and shitty people who call themselves feminists
- I still believe in the false notion that feminism is about hating men
- I actually don’t understand what feminism is
'Ophelia' by John Everett Millais
This painting is inspired by a scene from Shakespeare’s play Hamlet, wherein the character Ophelia sings while floating in a river just before she drowns. The actual scene is not seen onstage, but exists only in Gertrude’s description.
Ophelia is described to have fallen into the river from an overhanging tree while collecting flowers. The flowers present in the painting also reflect the Victorian interest in the “language of flowers”, according to which each flower carries a symbolic meaning. The red poppy floating amongst the other flowers in the water—not mentioned by Shakespeare’s description of the scene—represents sleep and death, possibly chosen by Millais to symbolise her impending demise.
