I love this image so much.
I’ve seen some women who are offended by this and say it’s ridiculous that her cleavage is showing and things of that sort.
Personally, I think it’s great.
Why should we have an image of a women with her hair tied up and flexing her muscles like she’s a man? (not that that isn’t great too!) In a way it suggests that when our hair is down, our breasts are visible and we wear (GASP) lipstick, we’re somehow lesser than men? We can do it! We can be feminine and successful.
You see what I’m saying here, ladies?
You don’t have to lose your femininity. Being feminine is great. Being masculine is great. Strength is not limited to one way of being.


I call bullshitThe whole message of this image was that woman could work and do labour and that they weren’t dainty little things that could only cook and clean. Rosie the riveter didn’t wear bright make-up, if you have any basic knowledge of what it was like during WW2 you’d know that make-up production pretty much ground to a halt and that many women did things like use charcoal as eyeliner, aniseed balls as a lip stain and used gravy to replicate the look of stockings. She had her hair up because she was supposed to be a manual factory worker. You think women risked their lives by getting their hair caught in machinery just so they could look pretty?Rosie the riveter wasn’t supposed to look like a man the way this post implies. She was strong and muscular because believe it or not; strength isn’t an exclusively male trait! Not only does this image undermine the whole meaning of the original poster by putting emphasis on looks (because we can do it! But it only counts if you can look hot too!) but this was actually drawn for the sole purpose of mocking feminism. It’s called “what do they want?” And was drawn for an article about the end of feminism. The artist drew it with the intention of showing that he believed that after women showed “they could do it” they went back to being merely pretty objects who cared more about making sure their hair looked good than their country.

Glasgow Violence: When Media Bias Goes Too Far 

On Thursday, 85% of the Scottish population turned out to cast their votes in the referendum on independence following days of peaceful demonstrations by Yes voters in the heart of our largest city, Glasgow. 

On Friday, Glasgow was gripped by fear as pro-union fascists rushed George Square, determined to engage in violence and hatred; the loyalists of Glasgow joined by members of the Scottish and English Defence Leagues, and all partly encouraged by Britain First.

Young girls had their Scottish flags torn away from them, women with Yes badges were spat at and called scum, nazi salutes and red hand of Ulster salutes were seen, flares were thrown, and the sectarian edge was on full display with “No Surrender” signs. Assaults were made on those carrying Saltires.

https://vine.co/v/OWPzrhni0Aj/embed

These are not the scenes reported by the BBC news or a number of newspapers who assure us that this was a “clash” between Yes and No voters, following their portrayal of Yes voters as Scottish nationalist mobs who intimidated No voters, despite little evidence to the contrary.

https://vine.co/v/OWU39hp1aJl

In truth, the police had the events of last evening well in hand. Glasgow is no stranger to sectarian trouble (a number of this mob wore Rangers tops), quickly surrounding the group and acting to restrict violence as far as possible as they departed the square and moved elsewhere. Six arrests were made and after a few hours the city was calm once more.

http://youtu.be/t46wPvXpLTs 

But what there was a disturbing lack of was information. News. People in the city and those in the rest of Scotland with friends and family in Glasgow had no idea what was happening. Those on twitter could find no information on whether things had escalated or calmed down, on where was safe and where was not.

https://vine.co/v/OWFlvihxJja

The police described the situation as “handbags”. They’ve dealt with much worse. But to write this off as sectarian violence alone excuses those fascists who travelled to take part. To write it off as only fascists excuses the local loyalists spoiling for a fight.

While the identity of the perpetrators is unknown, the one Scotland newspaper that supported independence – The Herald – had their generator set alight. The Sunday Herald is currently collecting evidence from the night to make a full report in their next edition. 

https://twitter.com/JonCoates/status/513087992106610688

Glasgow is a complicated city with a troubled past, but the level of political engagement across Scotland and within the city during this referendum was unprecedented. And almost entirely peaceful until now. Scotland had shown the world what democracy without war looks like, but while the UK media ignores the dark side of both Glasgow and the union, the international media has carried the most information on events.

https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10152309438961498

That people in Glasgow, Scotland and the UK had to turn to twitter to get the real information of what was happening is incredible. And while photographs and videos were helpful in illustrating the events, there was no control on validity of information. #GlasgowRiots trended through the night despite the situation being over, while many seemed under the impression that it was Yes voters at fault.

https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10202433758517846

Invoking the spirit of sectarianism there was no doubt trouble on both sides of that particular divide, but the swelling of ranks from fascist groups ensured that it was those bearing the Scottish flag or Yes badges that were in danger.

This was no celebration. This was no representation of No voters. These bigots represent no one but themselves. But the media turning a blind eye to this, or insinuating it is no worse than Scottish nationalists throwing an egg is irresponsible. I had friends hiding at home because they were terrified to go out on the streets without the safety of having white skin, with no idea of when the trouble was over.

There are Orange marches planned today in the city. Hopefully these idiots will stay at home. Please stay safe.

Thiss is excellent information!!

Why do you hate perks of being chinese...

She’s so pathetic. Let me tell you something about Ashley Perks-of-being-chinese. We were best friends in middle school. I know, right? It’s so embarrassing. I don’t even… Whatever. So then in eighth grade, I started going out with my first boyfriend Kyle who was totally gorgeous but then he moved to Indiana, and Ashley was like, weirdly jealous of him. Like, if I would blow her off to hang out with Kyle, she’d be like, “Why didn’t you call me back?” And I’d be like, “Why are you so obsessed with me?” So then, for my birthday party, which was an all-girls pool party, I was like, “Ashley, I can’t invite you, because I think you’re lesbian.” I mean I couldn’t have a lesbian at my party. There were gonna be girls there in their *bathing suits*. I mean, right? She was a LESBIAN. So then her mom called my mom and started yelling at her, it was so retarded. And then she dropped out of school because no one would talk to her, and she came back in the fall for high school, all of her hair was cut off and she was totally weird, and now I guess she’s on crack.

Seriously. You did all that stuff to HER and your calling her pathetic. You blew her off and when she asked why you got offended. You were the one being an asshole. She just wanted a friend. You made an assumption about her sexuality and made her feel alienated. Maybe that’s why she is who she is now

bless ur poor soul




I’m actually so embarrassed to be scottish right now. If people start a fucking riot after one referendum then it’s a good thing the people running our country are hundreds of miles away

It’s funny because that’s Buchanan street and it’s always that busy, just because there’s a few flags doesn’t mean everyone there is campaigning

Have you ever been on bluchannan street other than 3 pm on Saturday?

Yes plenty of times; Buchanan street is a pretty steep hill and when photographed from the top it always looks far busier than it is. And this photo was taken on a weekend anyway.

I’m actually pure nervous about the referendum tomorrow. If it’s a no I’ll probably go out celebrating but if it’s a yes I think I will cry

Please stop supporting FCKH8

Yeah I see no problem with this. They were just asking to be educated as LGBT exists because the people who fall within it have suffered abuse and therefor unite to create a stronger front. He says himself that he is more than happy to assist in making more people aware of asexuality if someone can explain to him what it’s about and why it causes people to suffer abuse

My independence ballot has been lost in the post and the referendum is in 3 days and I don’t have a polling card either so if I don’t get a replacement postal vote soon I won’t be able to vote which really sucks because it’s so close right now that every vote counts
