German Ad Doesn’t Need Words To Speak Volumes About Supporting Your Kids

Being a teenager is hard. But the German home improvement chain Hornbach knows having parents who go the extra mile to show their support can make a big difference.

Watch the full commercial that will sum those awkward high school years perfectly here.

This is the kind of dad I want to be.

Yes!

… the sissification fetish: the desire for men to be feminized and then degraded. The whole point of this kink is for men to be treated how women are, to be degraded how they are degraded in porn and in real life.

Obviously that hits home with me. I am a woman. I experience this daily.

So to have a man tell me he wants to be sissified, is difficult because as soon as we are done he gets to take off the costume. He gets to be a man again. His privilege is so prevalent that he can wear my gender to get him off and then be able to take it off whenever he wants. While I remain a woman.

As a Feminist it’s important for me to be constantly critiquing my kinks and the kink community. Which can be difficult because a lot of fetishes challenge my very staunch feelings on these issues. It’s also difficult because a lot of people in the kink community don’t want to critique the problems, because it causes them to have to think twice about themselves.

When someone works for less pay than she can live on — when, for example, she goes hungry so that you can eat more cheaply and conveniently — then she has made a great sacrifice for you, she has made you a gift of some part of her abilities, her health, and her life. The ‘working poor,’ as they are approvingly termed, are in fact the major philanthropists of our society. They neglect their own children so that the children of others will be cared for; they live in substandard housing so that other homes will be shiny and perfect; they endure privation so that inflation will be low and stock prices high. To be a member of the working poor is to be an anonymous donor, a nameless benefactor, to everyone else. — Barbara Ehrenreich, Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America. (via howtobeterrell)

I need feminism because I live in fear. I act to avoid sexual assault at almost any cost including what job I’ll do, where I’ll live, what hobbies I choose. At primary school when boys looked up my skirt and I told the teacher they found it funny, and acted like the boys were cheeky and endearing while I was treated like I was over reacting. I need feminism because I used to get wolf whistled at by leering men every single day just walking to school. As an adult looking back, I can see my disgust wasn’t an over reaction but very appropriate. I need feminism because a boy at school would shout “Kristen I’m going to fuck you!” on the bus and no one said anything, not even a teacher. I need feminism because a boy brought a picture of Jimi Hendrix surrounded by naked women in to our A Level Psychology class and everyone acted as though it was cool, even the teacher (who was very popular with the students) and I felt very uncomfortable. I need feminism because I feel cut off from my family because they still stay in touch with my uncle and chosen godfather who touched me inappropriately, said disgusting things to me and other women in the family. They are trying to keep the peace and I understand it, but I need feminism because what he did “wasn’t that bad”. I don’t think they would say the same if he’d done that to a boy. I need feminism because I felt like I was only good for sex and so made myself a sex object for men I actually loved and acted in ways that meant it was easy to treat me badly. When they refused to treat me like that and rejected me instead, I felt like I was worth nothing. I need feminism because I was told women are equal but people seem to act like they’re not. I need feminism because I am capable of much more than I allow myself to attempt. I need feminism because I can tell when a man is attempting something in bed because he saw it in porn, the common kind that treats a woman’s body as a thing of never ending holes. I need feminism because I went to the train station for work at 5 am and got harassed by a group of men. My fiance takes me now and I feel disempowered. I need feminism because my fiance has just realised how he objectified women without even knowing it, and it horrified him. I need feminism because I want my sister to be respected. I need feminism because I want a better world for my children.
