BOUNCING BABY GOFFIN’S COCKATOO
please watch this highly birdportant cockatoo dance
how the fuck did we get from there to where we are today
"How’d we get from there to here?"
Hmm, well let’s see.
- 1851; Sojourner Truth’s “Ain’t I A Woman?” Speech that, in due time, helped Americans recognize the African American women’s right to equality.
- 1848; FIRST Woman’s rights Convention Held
- 1890; Wyoming becomes the first state to allowed women to vote. (Even if for a populace reason.)
- 1920; 19th amendment ratified.

I could go on and on.
My point is; if you want to go back 177 years in the past, lose all right listed above (plus a bunch not listed), JUST to be able to bite a man’s nose off for touching you, be my guest.
I personally will be fine and dandy sitting here in the present.
The fact is; not all men are pigs, everyone is human, a good percentage of us human’s can be assholes, and misogyny is not greater than misandry.
Treat people like fucking people, if you don’t want some to touch you, tell them not to. If the go further than that, THEN bite their nose off. (Or, don’t. Because AIDS.)
Midna as an assist trophy for SSB4!
