I never thought I’d ever read anything as miraculous as this
I LITERALLY KNOW HIM HE’S MY FRIENDS BROTHER THIS 100% TRUE I REMEMBER IT HAPPENING
Everything Beyonce does is careful and thought out. Her entire image is perfection crafted from planning ahead. She does not ‘wing it’ or throw things into her performances and public appearances ‘just because’.
What she did at this award show was amazing, especially because of how intentional and thought out it clearly was.
Feminism is a scary word for a lot of people. Many women are afraid of calling themselves feminist because they think it implies anger, hatred of men, or a rejection of traditional femininity.
Beyonce presented everyone watching with two distinct images of what many viewers viewed as two very different women. There is the strong, independent FEMINIST. She is the woman who likes being in control and being in the spotlight. Then there is the WIFE and MOTHER. She is soft, sweet, smiling at the husband and child you can tell she loves and values so much.
For every girl watching who was afraid to be a feminist, afraid to be powerful, because of what she thought she would lose, this is an incredible message. You can be all the things you want to be. You can be both. Feminists can have amazing happy, full lives full of both traditional and modern womanhood.
Feminism means gender should not be a source of persecution or a restriction of your choices. Feminism mean the type of person you should be is based on what you value, not what outside forces pressure you to value because of your gender or biological sex. Shout at the top of your lungs that you are a feminist and proud. Then go and be the exact person that you want to be.
"Alright!! There’s nothing to be scared of! You guys just keep looking straight ahead. I’ll guard your backs with my life if I have to!"
ya hes cute…….but is he conscientious of the social inequalities and corruption in hierarchies of power that plague this world
Your ability to type in the face of your apparent illiteracy is quite impressive.
Karin has never stood up against Sasuke. The author has even made her tendencies to be his doormat a joke. Immediately after saying she’ll never forgive him for stabbing her, she’s cooing over him and rubbing herself over him, saying she “can’t help it”; she speaks in gibberish and the Japanese text actually has hearts in her bubbles during this scene, while Sasuke has a comical face of exaggerated horror. Karin is a total pushover around Sasuke and the author makes light of both her behavior towards him and his dismissive treatment of her.
Meanwhile when Sakura struggles with her feelings towards Sasuke when he is in his darker stages, the tone of the manga is very serious and emotional. This is because she genuinely loves Sasuke and his coldness, whether directed at her or not, troubles her.
Compare that to Karin, who really doesn’t give a shit about how nasty Sasuke might become as long as it’s not directed towards her, and even when it IS directed towards her, it’s turned into comedic value and she forgives him immediately. As a sensor, Karin was VERY aware of what was happening to Sasuke during the Kage summit, yet she did absolutely nothing to stop him and didn’t even seem concerned about it for more than a panel. She just immediately jumped when he told her to and went back to being his yes-man. Karin watched him kill people, watched his chakra change, watched him become dark and violent, and did absolutely nothing. She did not care.
What did Sakura do when she saw Sasuke headed down what she feared was an irreversible path into darkness? She opted to kill him. Sure, she was unable to stab him in the end, but this was an EXTREMELY intense and emotional scene, and she was ultimately unable to kill him because she remembered the gratitude she had shown him when she had told him she loved him so many years ago (note that when Karin “forgave” Sasuke and was unable to hurt him, there was no flashback or anything remotely serious).
YES, there were times when Sasuke was rude to Sakura and she didn’t react assertively, such as when he told her (and Kakashi) that they couldn’t do anything against Kaguya (a comment, mind you, that 99% of the fandom, including probably you, agreed with at the time), and when he knocked away the apple she gave him in the hospital, but people purposefully take these actions out of context and blow them out of proportion. It’s bizarre how people will point at Sasuke making a rude comment towards Sakura when the entire world was just destroyed and say “Look! He hates her and she just stands there and takes it like a weak crybaby!” while overlooking the fact that Sasuke stabbed Karin in cold blood for no legitimate reason, while smiling about it, and she went right back to slobbering over him with <3 <3 without a second thought. But wait! I know you’re probably all ready to go “But Sasuke tried to stab Sakura, too!” Don’t even bother. Sasuke tried to kill Sakura as a knee-jerk defensive reaction when she tried to stab him. The two situations are not even comparable.
You’re right in that Karin is nothing like Sakura. You just have it entirely backwards. Karin never stands up against Sasuke, and is largely unphased at his terrible behavior because she doesn’t care about him (note that Karin has never shown interest in Sasuke’s history despite knowing that he is clearly traumatized by it). Sakura stands up against Sasuke and is affected by his behavior because she loves him and knows that he is hurting himself (also note that Sakura is very concerned about his past, future, and present and regularly asks him about everything).
Karin’s “love” for Sasuke is entirely wrapped up in whether or not he’ll have sex with her. Karin lets him walk all over her because she doesn’t want to lose the chance to sleep with him, and in doing so she does absolutely nothing to help him grow as a person or recover from his past. She never questions him and and her one attempt to confront him resulted in some forced comedic scene of her making a total fool of herself while he looked on in disgust.
Sakura’s love for Sasuke is love for him as a person. When he acts out, Sakura stands up against him; she is willing to risk his feelings towards her if she thinks it will help him. She is concerned about his emotional and mental well-being, questions his motives regularly, and has confronted him on his behavior multiple times. These scenes are always serious and intense, and Sasuke’s reactions to these moments are equally serious.
I really don’t understand why people like you even pretend to be Karin fans. The “Karin” that I see most “Karin fans” in the Naruto fandom supporting is nothing like the Karin in the manga. Fanon Karin is this strong-willed, outspoken, sex-confident woman who never takes shit from anyone and will do anything for her loved ones. Canon Karin is a simpering, shallow, bad-tempered, weak-willed sex predator who does not care about others in the slightest. Do yourself a favor and stop pretending to care about such a trashy character when in reality you’re just obsessing over some fan-invented Sue because you don’t like the future wife of your fictional crush.
(PS - I find it hilarious how so many people who bash Sakura to elevate Karin focus on how she cries a lot. There is nothing wrong with crying. There is nothing wrong with showing emotion. Sakura is a strong, brave young woman with a big heart. She can cry all she wants because you can bet that while she’s crying, she’ll be standing up for herself, her loved ones, and what she believes is right.)
advice by a girl who doesn’t give a fuck: the reason why guys don’t respect girls when it comes to football is because those guys are insecure little pricks who are scared of a vagina with an opinion on something they consider to be strictly masculine and they try to disguise it as respect. ironically enough, we don’t want to be within a one mile radius of guys like you, so don’t worry, you’re safe, your home made girl repellent is working.
i’ve got news for you and the rest of the male chauvinistic pigs out there: a girl equalizing you in football knowledge does not make you less of a man. being a sexist ass with no balls to even show his face does. because a real man acknowledges a woman’s opinion without trying to resort to biology to rule it out.
YOU should tone it down with the pep talk, buddy. i’m not apologizing for being a football fan who happens to be a straight woman. life is not a video game, you don’t need man points to get to the next level.
remember when shikamaru was one of the only people to resist kabutos sleep genjutsu but laid down on the ground and went to sleep anyway
