Where’d the name Iggy Azalea come from?
Iggy is the name of my old dog. I had a name plate necklace that I used to wear which read “Iggy.” People I’d meet assumed it was my name and started calling me that. Azalea is the street I grew up on – I’m from Azalea Street. My family still lives there to this day. (x)
Why I HATE it when you say “women and children”
"Save the women and children" "What about the women and children?" "They’re killing women and children"
This is everywhere as of late and it pisses the butch feminist in me the fuck off. I hate this phrase and my reasoning is two fold.
- It reinforces this idea that women are somehow more fragile than men, that we need more help than men.
- It seems that the ONLY time that we, as a society, can put women above men is when there is imminent danger and Death is knocking. When women demand that they get paid just as much as their male counterparts, centuries of sexism is boiled down to “bad negotiating”. When women are being beat by their husbands, we shrug. When women are raped, they provoked it. So it seems like a woman can go her entire life being underpaid, she can be denied control over her own body, be a survivor, and the only time we can collectively agree that that woman is worth our time and energy is when that light bulb goes off that tells us, “Hey, we need women.” It takes cascading bombs, it takes earth-shattering natural disasters, it takes sinking ships, it takes war, it takes invasions for us to finally value women. And even then we are only placing value on their lives, not because of who they are, but their ability to reproduce.
How the hell are they even comfortable
