Male Celebrities for Emma Watson’s #HeForShe Campaign
Happy 35th birthday to Hermione Jean Granger, the brightest witch of her age!
This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.
Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.
I fucking cried my eyes out during this scene
DEAR EMMA WATSON
Where was MY right to decide what to do with my body? It wasn’t in the room where my parents paid a doctor to cut the skin off my penis when I was a mere minutes old!!
I bet your clit and vulva are still intact.
Tell me again how oppressed you are by this patriarchy?
Please do not belittle female circumcision by comparing it to male circumcision.
Male circumcision is not done to oppress men or destroy their sexuality but for either religious or health reasons. Removing the foreskin does not prevent sex, or damage the penis. You were not genetically mutilated.
Female circumcision involves removing the clitoris, or the vulva, sometimes it involves cutting the inside of the vagina and sowing it shut so that it heals over. Sometimes all of the above. It is oppressive, it is always painful and often fatal, and is still practised in many countries around the world with the goal of oppressing women under extreme patriarchal regimes.
Emma Watson may not suffer from those regimes directly in the way you’re referring to, but she spoke very frankly about how she has had a very privileged life. She is using that privilege to stand up for those who are not as fortunate.
Tell me again how you are helping by making it about you?
People like this are honestly so awful lmao.
First and last look, they Broke us pretty Bad.
