Dreams of Insomnia

Die Realität hat ihre eigene Wirklichkeit und dabei ist sie nicht realer als die Dimensionen meiner Gedanken.

After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.

BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?

BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?

The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

“Los Angeles, Calif. — Miss Ethel Mildred Lee, 23-year-old girl born in this country of Chinese parents, is shown at her job as an electrician-helper at the Los Angeles yards of the California Shipbuilding Corporation, where she has worked for almost two years. Extra incentives to help the war effort are two brothers in the U.S. Army and one in the Navy yard at Honolulu, Hawaii. Miss Lee, who’s 4 feet 10 inches tall and weighs 98 pounds, buys $100 worth of War Bonds a month.” — January 20, 1944

Miss Ethel Mildred Lee, doin’ the damn thing. So many examples of women shitting on bullshit patriarchal thinking, just hidden in plain sight throughout history.

this is also your feminist history: shit’s complicated.

"Jen and I used to get confused for each other, when we first started out in the business, and she was brunette and I had long hair. And we were confused for each other to the extent that we separately, having not made this agreement before we met, jokingly did interviews as each other on red carpets and signed each others headshots and things because we both, you know, were supportive of each others work and thought it’d be funny and were tired of trying to explain to people that we were two separate actresses.”
