New Favorite Tumblr: Confused Cats Against Feminism

Depressed, disturbed, almost-but-not-quite-amused by the “Women Against Feminism” phenomenon and Tumblr? There’s an antidote for that: Confused Cats against Feminism.

Like many of the women featured on the Women Against Feminism Tumblr, these cats don’t seem to really get what feminism is. Here are some great ones. Upload your own images. I would. But I don’t have a cat. Plus I’m allergic.

New Favorite Tumblr: When Women Refuse

Usually our “New Favorite Tumblr” feature highlights cats or sandwiches, but “When Women Refuse” is proof of online community media’s ability to bear far more weight than we give it credit. The new site, started by Deanna Zandt, catalogs “stories of violence inflicted on women who reject sexual advances.” The posts contextualize the Isla Vista shooting as a particularly gruesome instance of a widespread pattern rather than an inexplicable aberration.

A trigger warning feels redundant given the Tumblr’s mission, but take care of yourself if you read: both the stories and images are graphic. You can find a few more posts after the jump.

New Favorite Tumblr: Saving Room For Cats

It turns out we’ve been wrong. The well-documented phenomenon of men taking up too much space on the train as if to air out a particularly large set of balls that has enraged women since time immemorial (or at least since the invention of public transit) is not, in fact, about a gendered sense of entitlement to fill up public space or a performance of masculinity.

There is actually a perfectly reasonable explanation: they’re just saving room for cats. Very large cats.

On behalf of feminists everywhere, our sincerest apologies to all sprawling men and their furry friends.

More after the jump.

New Favorite Tumblr: White Boys in Salmon Shorts

Umm… yes please. White Boys in Salmon Shorts, started at an unnamed Northeastern college, seeks “to draw attention to and foster dialogue about the preponderance of white boys in salmon-colored shorts, and their variants, on our campus, as well as places across the country.” Don’t worry, though, pastel mint green is fine, too. As WBSS’s “Statement of Inclusivity” reads:

We are an inclusive blog. Which means, that we identify “white boys in salmon-colored shorts” as an emblem of upper-class, white, male aesthetics. We accept ALL submissions that capture the workings of upper-class white aesthetics appropriating pastel-colored clothes. This is not limited to college campuses or the New England area.

Some particularly excellent posts after the jump.

New Favorite Tumblr: Cats That Look Like Pin Up Girls

Alright, I’m not entirely sure the point of this Tumblr is to highlight the ridiculousness of pin-up poses, but let’s just assume it is. In that case, feminist commentary on vintage sexism + adorable cats = winning the internet, in my book.
