HAHAHAHA Ditte had posted a short video link and in it, Andy was at a team dinner at the end of the TdF (at least, I'm pretty sure it was the end of the TdF...my memory has been pretty crappy lately lol). Anyway,he's putting together a burger to eat and he's all excited and says that burgers with ketchup are pretty much better than sex. LOL. We had burgers and corn on the cob for dinner and when I reached for the ketchup, I remembered that clip lol. XD
Haha, oh Andy, of course he’d be the one to say it. Maybe they just don’t have ketchup in Luxembourg? That deprived boy… (:
“[Today], every girl is expected to have: Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes. Everyone else is struggling.”—
I want to live in a world where little girls are not pinkified, but where little girls who like pink are not punished for it, either. We can certainly talk about the social pressures surrounding gender roles, and the concerns that people have when they see girls and young women who appear to be forced into performances of femininity by the society around them, but let’s stop acting like they have no agency and free will. Let’s stop acting like women who choose to be feminine are somehow colluders, betraying the movement, bamboozled into thinking that they want to be feminine. Let’s stop denying women their own autonomy by telling them that their expressions of femininity are bad and wrong.
Antifemininity is misogynist. What you are saying when you engage in this type of rhetoric is that you think things traditionally associated with women are wrong. Which is misogynist. By telling feminine women that they don’t belong in the feminist movement, you are reinforcing the idea that to be feminine and a woman is wrong, that women who want to be taken seriously need to be more masculine, because most people view gender presentation in binary ways. This rewards the ‘one of the boys’ type rhetoric I encounter all over the place from self-avowed feminists who seem to think that bashing on women is a good way to prove how serious they are when it comes to caring about women and bringing men into the feminist movement.
"But you can't go," you scream. Heart shatters, piercing the ground with its diamond crust. Sobbing soul, the return of your love its only cure. But there shall be no cure, and the diamonds will be ground to dust until only the mud sparkles.
“Like in horse racing, wagers are placed and prize purses are lucrative. The top bird can take home up to 10,000 euros. That’s about $16,000 — for a bird to fly from one place to another. For a woman to ride her bicycle from Point A to Point B and get there before the rest of her flock, the prize money is rarely more than $1,000. And that’s at a top level UCI (Union Cycliste International) race. But that’s not the worst part of the meager winnings. Because cycling is a team sport and most women’s teams enter six to eight riders per event, that prize money is then divided by the number of people on the team.”—
Kathryn Bertine on prize purse disparity in women’s cycling. The way she puts it in perspective is jarring: racing pigeons make more in prize earnings than top female professional cyclists. This has to change!
