So this is what trust looks like.

edwardspoonhands:

Funny, my first thought was “So this is what the patriarchy looks like.”

feministe-radicale-et-bisexuelle:

Yup. This is how women are supposed to trust men. With their lives.

egalitariste:

Woman : “Hey, can we just… Drop the bow?”
Man : “WHY DON’T YOU TRUST ME I’M NOT A VIOLENT GUY, YOU ARE INSULTING ME THINKING I WILL HURT YOU!!!”
Woman : “No it’s just… Well I’m afraid.”
Man : “But why? Look at me, I’m not afraid. And we’re equal, look, we pull the bow together.”
Woman : “I think we’re not equal, you can kill me with the arrow and I can’t.”
Man : “What? So you would like to be able to kill me? You’re so agressive!”
Woman : “That’s not what I mean, we were talking about equality : you can hurt me, I can’t.”
Man : “Of course you can. You can hit me with the bow if you want.”
Woman : “That’s not the same thing, it will never kill you.”
Man : “Oh, you always complaining, stop victimising yourself! Do I talk about the difficulty of holding the arrow? Of the responsibility it giving to me?”

[…]
Etc, etc.
Every debates about gender equality, ladies and gentleman.

How to use sand to freak people out

Imagine if some guy was tripping and saw the woman, runs up to help her and she just crumbles apart in his hands. That’s gonna take the trip south.

besides-itstoowarm:

doctor who has signed on the third female director of the moffat era

that’s one more female director than davies had, even if the moffat era has one less female writer than the davies era did

basically can we stop with this “moffat hates women” bullshit…

In all honesty…does it really matter if it’s a man or a woman directing?

Moffat still can’t write for Dr.Who so it’s kind of a moot point. Maybe instead, he could get decent co-writers and directors regardless of sex and instead base it on skill.

Then…maybe…if we’re lucky…the next season won’t suck.

So you want better writers… than Steven Moffat, Neil Gaiman, Neil Cross, Gareth Roberts, and usually Toby Whithouse and Chris Chibnall?

Homie, I’m gonna be straight up with you. You are looking for a unicorn. For the Loch Ness Monster. For Bigfoot. You are looking for something with such impossibly high standards that you will never be satisfied.

But anyway, I’m glad that you think your own personal opinions about the show are more important than getting more women in a primarily male-dominated field. It’s really helpful and important.

Look. Gaiman and Gatiss, they are amazing writers. The episodes they wrote were amazing. Chibnall was great. Whithouse was okay.

Moffat is…Moffat. The only 2 episodes he wrote that were on Dr.Who standards was the 50th, and ‘The Big Bang’. Of course, that’s just my opinion. Oh, and Blink. Almost forgot about that. (But then he ended up over-using the Weeping Angels so…all good things must come to an end)

Better writing isn’t a myth. Just look at say…Davies episodes? Tom MacRae? Helen Raynor? Gareth Roberts?

I don’t care if it’s a female writing it or a dude. If the person doing the hard work behind the scenes is good at what they do, then I am excited and happy for them. I will support them all the way. If they can’t do the job well, then I’m not going to be all ‘hip, hip, hurray’. Sorry.

I feel like this got off topic though. -.-

Yh, this got way off topic.

Whether or not you like Steven Moffat is irrelevant. I personally think that pretty much all Doctor Who episodes are “Dr.Who” standards and Helen Raynor and Gareth Roberts are not really the best examples of this. (Davies on a good day is).

But that’s irrelevent, the point is

People have been complaining that not enough women are being hired in Doctor Who.

For some reason people have decided that this only became a problem when Moffat’s tenure began and he therefore hates women.

A woman has now been hired to direct two episodes.

So clearly (if we’re going to ignore the hundreds of pro-woman things he has said and done) this is proof that those criticisms are wrong and he doesn’t hate women.

Personal opinion and interpretation of his episodes is completely irrelevant to this particular subject.

New Muslim Care:

A Muslim Woman Can Propose To A Muslim Man

A Muslim woman is allowed to approach a man with a marriage proposal, if she comes to know of a man who has good character, Deen and would be a good husband, she can approach him in an honorable way with a marriage proposal. This may be seen as improper or brazen in some cultures. But that is a cultural attitude, not an Islamic one.

We live in a society... where we are of the mindset that it's the man who should always make the proposal for marriage. Our society set rule that it's the man who has to propose and make women feel guilty or ashamed as if they would be doing something so wrong and unacceptable by asking for a man's hand in marriage. So many women wait and wait on the man to propose, and sometimes months and even years go by, and if a man doesn't propose, the woman herself become a question mark.

In some cases when a daughter dare to suggest a suitable man to her parents which considered a crime, and also considered rude and offensive and automatically deemed to mean that she is involved in an illicit relationship with him. All these culturally-driven notions and customs are against to the teachings of Islam.

There is nothing in Quran or Sunnah that would suggest that it is prohibited for a woman to initiate a marriage proposal.
According to Islam , there is no problem for a Muslim woman to propose to a Muslim man. Islam gives a Muslim woman the right and honour to make such a proposal without feeling guilty or ashamed.

Our best role model is the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) and in this veiw we can find a most beautiful example.
When a proposal sent from Ummul-Mumineen Hazrat Khadija-tul-Kubra (Razi Allah Anha) to Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), through her friend "Nafisah".
Nafisah delivered the proposal to our Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him). And He accepted this proposal.
Obviously Allah would never have permitted him to accept a proposal from a woman if doing so was in any way shameful or improper.

There is absolutely no prohibition in Islam for a woman to propose marriage to a man. It is perfectly fine for you to approach the man in a most honorable way and let him know your intentions by hinting or being flat out about it, depending upon the noble custom in your society. It should be done through the proper and reasonable channels and without violating any rules of Shari’ah.

A woman could do this would be to ask her parents to approach his parents; or to send a message through someone who knows him (for example his sister, aunt, cousin, etc) that she is interested, in order to learn if he also might be interested. She can also approach him directly and raise the subject, as long as she follows Islamic rules of etiquette (meeting in public, having a chaperone, no flirtatious or sexual speech, lowering the gaze, etc).
It doesn't matter who propose, as long as its done in a good moral way within Islamic morality.

And it is also perfectly acceptable for a woman’s family to propose marriage. Unfortunately, however, there remains a stigma within certain Muslim cultures against a woman’s family proposing or initiating marriage talks.

Sayyiduna Umar ibn al-Khattab (Allah be pleased with him) offered his daughter, Hafsa (Allah Be Pleased With Her), not only to one but two individuals: Sayyiduna Usman (Allah be pleased with him) and Sayiduna Abu Bakr al-Siddiq (Allah be pleased with them), latter-on the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) himself asked for the hand of Hadrat Hafsa (Allah Be Pleased With Her) from Hadrat Umar ibn al-Khattab (Allah Be Pleased With Him) .
Similarly, when the Prophet of Allah, Sayiduna Shu’ayb (Peace Be Upon Him) observed the beautiful character of Sayiduna Musa [Moses](Peace Be Upon Him) and his praiseworthy attributes such as trustworthiness, he proposed marriage to him for one of his daughters.
So it is also proved, there is nothing wrong with a woman’s guardian (wali) proposing marriage on her behalf to a righteous and suitable man.

We need to remind ourselves that it was Khadija-tul-Kubra (Razi Allah Anha) [the Prophet’s first wife] who asked for the Prophet’s hand in marriage; and it was then and still is now an honorable thing to do. So sisters, it is within your right to make the first move. If there is a good brother out there that you like as a husband, then don't be ashamed or afraid to ask for the brother's hand in marriage. If you are too shy or afraid to ask, then let a family member, your parents or even a good friend ask on your behalf. Then Allah will put baraka in it.
And remember, our religion Islam is the religion of easiness & peace, do not create confused methods and do not set complex-ed & baseless rules in your life and as well in society, try to investigate and think about the problem and it's solution according to Islam and find and follow the straight path in the light of Islamic teachings, ancestors can not save us but the light of Islam brighten our life here in this world and also life hereafter.

And Allah knows the best.
Ha no wonder I always picture myself kneeling before a guy & offering him a ring in a box, and I'm the one saying "will you marry me" in the manliest voice possible.

In the spirit of International Women’s Day, a bow to all the incredibly talented women throughout history who were never allowed to attach their name to their work or use male aliases simply because they were women. Did you know that George Elliot (real name: Mary Ann Evans, author of “Middlemarch”), and Harper Lee (real name: Nelle Harper Lee, author of “To Kill a Mockingbird”) were both women?

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from her eyes because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

A Russian Woman Gave Birth to 69 Children!

In the 1700s there was a woman who birthed 69 children. She completely holds the record for most children born to one woman. In total, she had 16 sets of twins, 7 sets of triplets, and 4 sets of quadruplets!

Out of the 69 children, 67 of them survived past their infancy. This information has been in circulation since the 1800s, and there have been doubts about how true the claims are. Nevertheless, the information presented was good enough for the Guiness Book of World Records to include this woman in their record books.

Kate Gosselin and the Duggar family have nothing on that lady!

World’s Worst Person of the Day: In case you were wondering, yes — there are still some pretty awful people in the world.

British woman on London transport complaining that Britain is nothing now that ethnic minorities are in her country.

Beyond the staggering levels of venomous (NSFW) vile being spewed forth from this bigoted British blowhard’s mouth — in full view of her son, no less — I am absolutely shocked — shocked — by how calm everyone is being.

Makes you wonder how anyone could even become this intolerant.
