We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, ‘You can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise you will threaten the man.’ Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors – not for jobs or for accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.

since were on the topic can liam, harry, and niall get dragged for this to?

they are speaking to a nicaraguan-american woman

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kow7wcoD3PE#t=52

  • niall laughed when the women said she born in miami (bc damn theres noooo way a latina was born in this country right?) and he automatically compares her to sofia vergara
  • liam says shes faking the accent then tells her “youre actually some form of spanish from mexico”
  • harry mocks sofias accent

ombreleanor:

shit like this makes me so mad because you automatically can tell who all the closet racists are that are 1D fans because they never, not once acknowledge anything offensive that the boys do.. no niall. not liam. not harry. not louis. you are literally so far up their asses that you are too much of a shit to admit that they can actually do something wrong and that’s seriously fucked up and wrong and you should be ashamed of yourself.

I'll never get why you guys do all this digging up and stuff and continue to fuck with them. It seem counterintuitive to say "they're so shitty and racist" then go back to your blog solely dedicated to them.

benwinstagram:

not really. it’s like when you’re hanging with your friend who you love, and they say something fucked up and you’re like ‘bruh….’ they are public figures, and the media does not call out racism unless it’s the more blatant kind, and even then… (as we can see from ferguson). you just use the platform to let ppl know why that’s wrong, hope to hell it will reach the celebrity of choice and they can stop perpetuating fuckery, and that’s it. or at least that’s why i do it.

the problem is y’all view calling it out as more of a hating on thing than an actual problem that usually reflects on society as a whole
