So not only do we make less money, but our hair is so precious is costs extra to get it cut.

Gee!
It’s almost like cutting a woman’s hair requires a greater level of styling then it does for a man!  It’s almost like generally women’s hair is much longer then men’s, and women’s hairstyles are generally more complicated and often use higher quality and quantity of hairstyling products! 
But yeah, you feel like a big woman trashing on what’s probably either a mom and pop family run establishment, or one that will probably have a bunch of minimum wage employees? 

As the daughter of a cosmetologist, who has explained many of the different options given to her clients and who has watched her mother transform people multiple times, I know first hand why prices are what they are.
Women’s hair takes longer to cut and it is usually accompanied with a style. Men’s hair is usually very short and they usually come in for a trim, which is really cheap and takes about fifteen minutes tops. 
If the guy’s hair is long and he wants a style too, guess what? The price increases to around the same amount for a women’s style. Because the price is based around hair length because hair length is usually what can determine how long it’ll take.
However, some places give little rewards if you’re a first timer. Men’s first haircut is half off as is women’s. The reason why is so they can get an idea of how good the stylist is and they’ll keep coming back. And then there are preferred customers, clients who have been loyal to a stylist for years, who get little things here and there with management’s approval:
A manicure at half price
A cut and style at 15% off
A children’s cut and style at half off for back to school
And then there are the times that the salon has engaged in charity by cutting and styling people on assisted living for free or cutting and styling a foster child’s hair whose mother had neglected and allowed to get severely damaged and unhealthy (that last one was a recent client of my mother’s and that little girl was so fricking happy afterward).
So yeah, salons have good reasons for their prices and sometimes that profit is used to support the stylists who work for free during certain times like those mentioned above (always approved by management first of course). By making the prices what they were, my mom never lost money even when she took clients who weren’t expected to pay by the management due to their circumstances. The prices of her normal clients was able to make up the difference.
Sorry for the rant, I’m just really proud of my mother’s career. It gets shit on enough by snobs who think she’s just a glorified hair dresser. I don’t like seeing people talking about stuff they know nothing about.

Really getting sick of everything trying to turn everything into a social justice issue and also they are shitting on what looks like a small business.
Go run a small business and see how easy it is, because it isn’t, and it doesn’t help to have some bratty little snubbed up kid with a cushy life to shit all over their business by calling them sexist because their prices vary.
My family runs an auto mechanic business, it’s VERY hard. It is not easy. And after I get my certifications and move out I plan on being a business owner.
People like OP are fucking vile. Not everything is a social justice issue. Look up your shit before you further embarrass yourself by trying to look good to your sjw-feminist buddies on a blog.
Did you know if the business owner found this they could sue you for slander if this post affected their business?

Why is Feminism Such a Dirty Word: Part 1

(all credit goes to justfeministhings)

Uhmm…none of these are true…

Uhmm…. they’re all based off real events. Every single one of them is true. Check your ignorance.

All right…slide by slide.

1. Feminism is FAR from the the only equality movement. There are also the ideas that people from all religions, racial backgrounds, ethnicities, no matter their gender or sexuality that people are equal.

2.Never conned anyone..don’t know what that even has to do with feminism?

3. I know me and my friends group have worked to do better at not generalizing anyone (i.e. genders, men, races, pro-life/pro-choicers).

4. The whole idea is we be equal as men and women. So it isn’t that all feminist believe they don’t have feelings or think about their actions. But the fact that men are thought not to have these things is part of what makes me upset because it is an excuse. Men and women and all people make mistakes, so just because of someone’s gender doesn’t mean one does or does not have feelings.

5. What else are we supposed to do with hateful words if people aren’t willing to change their language. Bitch has become one of the words I don’t take as offensive. This is because when someone calls me a bitch it is usually because I did something for myself and made a decision that is for my own health and personal reasons. 

6. I am not stuck in victimhood…I am strong!!! And with that I have a voice too help women and men alike who do feel that way about themselves.

7. Never seen/heard of anyone burning another feminists book…disagreeing and being crazy are different.

8. This has been a problem in a lot of media lately, but sometimes it feels like the only way to appreciate another body. That doesn’t mean it is ok. People should be able to be represented in our society of all shapes and sizes without one being bad or ugly. It’s those ideas of making someone feel like their body is the ugly one that causes depression and eating disorders.

9. I don’t mock anti-feminists. I just argue with them and be completely obnoxious about my beliefs. They can have their opinion, but I am not willing to move backwards in our history of where women have gotten.

10. ALL PEOPLE get to make choices in their life and depending on the outcome they have to learn how to live with their choices. Just because someone isn’t a feminist doesn’t mean they don’t have the same rights as every other human being.

1. Feminists claim that anyone who believes men and women are equal is automatically a feminist, even though there’s a lot more to feminism than just that. It’s like you bold an advertisement and then ask people to ignore the fine print at the bottom that states all the negative side effects.

2.  Anita Sarkeesian is a famous feminist with the video series “Feminist Frequency” which does criticism of video games. She infamously asked people to donate thousands of dollars to help with the video series and then instead kept all the money for herself.

3. You’re in the minority, because the vast majority of feminists have turned “not all men” into a joke to mock men who don’t want to be labelled as bad people.

4. Then stop referring to men as poisoned M&Ms and other vicious things in your stupid inaccurate analogies on tumblr.

5. Feminists have redefined the word sexism so that it only applies to women in an attempt to erase male victims of sexism and excuse themselves from being called out as sexist.

6. Feminism has turned into a huge victim complex. #YesAllWomen

7. There’s a big post going around with over 100,000 notes of a girl burning a book by a prominent feminist scholar named Christina Hoff Sommers because the book pointed out that men and boys are suffering injustices and inequalities in the system that shouldn’t be ignored.

8. Then you should stop idolizing Nicki Minaj and other artists that mock thin women. And you should stop putting up this idea that thin women are “privileged” in society because that’s a load of horseshit.

9. Laci Green (another prominent feminist) and other feminists made a mockery of women against feminism and teased and tormented them because of their decision to not identify as feminists. In case you were wondering, that’s pretty damn misogynistic to do to other women.

10. Then start telling other feminists to quit slapping labels onto people and forcing them to join the feminist cult.

Either you haven’t been paying attention or are refusing to acknowledge what feminism is actually about.

Why is Feminism Such a Dirty Word: Part 1

(all credit goes to justfeministhings)

Ok first of all, these are the most narrow-minded and stupidest stereotypes ever. Being a feminist doesn’t mean you see men as inanimate objects, it means you see them as your equals. That they have the same rights as you, because thats what feminists are trying to achieve, gender equality. This does not mean we think we are superior to men, simply that we are equal and deserve to be treated that way.

Another thing, feminism doesn’t actually involve body shaming at all so I don’t know why you involved that in your anti-feminism post. That is a completely different thing, as I said feminism is the equality of genders, not bodies.

Women are victims, we don’t get the same pay as men. People will throw sexist and misogynistic comments at us, we are looked down on because of our gender. But so are men, which is why we need feminism. So that both men and women can be equal and free of stereotypical views. When you say you’re not a feminist, you aren’t saying women aren’t superior, you’re saying that you don’t believe in gender equality. That men don’t deserve to have the same rights as women, or that you wouldn’t have the same right as a women over your child if you were to have one. You’re saying that men should be strong and emotion-less like those stereotypes.

Before you make assumptions on something and post your opinions on the internet, make sure you have an actual grasp on what it is you’re talking about. Atleast understand what the word you’re saying means, it isn’t hard to look for the definition of feminism. Especially when your inaccurate opinion can rub off on other impressionable people.

Oh grow the hell up. Honestly, why are you feminists so damn interested in making sure everyone slaps your feminist cult label onto themselves? Feminism doesn’t own a monopoly on the word “equality”. Feminism has become a hugely flawed ideology and movement. These examples above? They’re not “narrow minded stereotypes”. This is what real feminism in action really looks like. These are all based on real instances in the feminist movement. Stop being ignorant by refusing to acknowledge how bad feminism has gotten. It’s ridiculous.

Sincerely,

a pissed off woman who’s tired of feminists trying to force me to join a movement that I don’t want to be a part of

fyi the post that’s going around captioned “emma watson’s response to the nude photo leak threats” (or any variation thereof) of her showing her breasts isn’t real

it’s a photoshop of this picture she did for mariano vivanco and by reblogging that post you’re violating her just as much as the rest of the creeps threatening to release nude pictures of her

thanks, bye

Oh man this is really good to know.

ppl are so gross….

non-binary genders date back to ancient egypt if not earlier and yet people still act like they’re some kind of “tumblr trend” like what else from 2000 bc are you not gonna believe in? roads? beer? locks?

the pyramids are a myth perpetuated by social justice bloggers
