Abled people complain about disabled people needing accommodations, because “in the real world there are no accommodations”.

But abled people receive accommodations all the time. Cars are an accommodation for those who can’t run a steady speed of 60 mph….

The Forgotten 1950s Girl Gang

No idea if this photo set is already here somewhere…it likely is…but this is a bit rad…

_———————————————

You might have heard of the Teddy Boys, a 1950s rebel youth subculture in Britain characterized by an unlikely style of dress inspired by Edwardian dandies fused with American rock’n roll. They formed gangs from East London to North Kensington and became high profile rebels in the media. But an important sub-subculture of the Teddy Boys, an unlikely female element, has remained all but invisible from historical records. Meet The Teddy Girls.

These are one of just a few known collections of documented photographs of the first British female youth culture ever to exist. In 1955, freelance photographer Ken Russell was introduced Josie Buchan, a Teddy Girl who introduced him to some of her friends. Russell photographed them and one other group in Notting Hill.

After his photographs were published in a small magazine in 1955, Russell’s photographs remained unseen for over half a century. He became a successful film director in the meantime. In 2005, his archive was rediscovered, and so were the Teddy Girls.

Russell remembers 14 year-old Teddy Girl, Jean Rayner: “She had attitude by the truckload. No one paid much attention to the teddy girls before I did them, though there was plenty on teddy boys. They were tough, these kids, they’d been born in the war years and food rationing only ended in about 1954 – a year before I took these pictures. They were proud. They knew their worth. They just wore what they wore.”

To understand the Teddy Girls style, we first have to go back to the boys culture. They emerged in England as post-war austerity was coming to an end and working class teenagers were able to afford good clothes and began to adopt the upper class Saville Row revival of dandy Edwardian fashion. By the mid 1950s, second-hand Edwardian suits were readily available on sale in markets as they had become unwearable by the upper-class once the Teddy Boys had started sporting them. The Teds, as they called themselves, wore long drape jackets, velvet collars, slim ties and began to pair the look with thick rubber-soled creeper shoes and the ‘greaser’ hairstyles of their American rock’n’roll idols.

Despite their overall gentlemanly style of dress (certainly compared to today), the Teddys were a teenage youth culture out to shock their parents’ generation, and quickly became associated with trouble by the media.

Teddy girls were mostly working class teens as well, but considered less interesting by the media who were more concerned with sensationalizing a violent working class youth culture. While Teddy boys were known for hanging around on street corners, looking for trouble, a young working class woman’s role at the time was still focused around the home.

But even with lower wages than the boys, Teddy girls would still dress up in their own drape jackets, rolled-up jeans, flat shoes, tailored jackets with velvet collars and put their feminine spin on the Teddy style with straw boater hats, brooches, espadrilles and elegant clutch bags. They would go to the cinema in groups and attend dances and concerts with the boys, collect rock’n’roll records and magazines. Together, they essentially cultivated the first market for teenage leisure in Britain.

In the end it was the troublesome reputation of the Teddy Boys that got the better of this youth subculture. Most of the violence and vandalism was exaggerated by the media, but there were notably a few gangs that chose a darker path.

She then became the queen of demons because she wouldn’t listen to Adam’s bullshit.

I read that since she was created of the same earth as Adam, she demanded equality and refused to be submissive to him. So, basically, yes, she wouldn’t put up with his bullshit so he whined to God until he got a new wife. And look how well that turned out.

It was also scandalous because Lilith demanded that she be on top when having sex,  not Adam.

Reblogging this because it keeps showing up on my dash and I keep not-quite raining on the parade, but it seems like everyone thinks this means something different than it does, so I guess I’ll rain on it a little bit.I’m afraid this motion has nothing to do with conquering the gender binary or whatever Tumblr is really happy about to be reblogging it so heavily. It’s not about making little children feel like they can get whichever toy they prefer. It’d be nice if it was, but I’d be shocked if that was the case.No, the girl toy here is a My Little Pony. Which means that the *real* reason for this notice is that a bunch of bronies, as there are bajillions of photos and videos of them doing, are coming into fast food restaurants and buying several happy meals. They threw pissy fits when asked if they wanted the “boy or girl” toy, insisting that My Little Pony isn’t for girls or whatever, again, only saying this because of overwhelming evidence that bronies do this shit. Management eventually has enough of it, asks employees to just ask if people want Skylanders or My Little Pony so they won’t have any more disgusted bronies getting mad that their precious fandom is targeted at crappy dumb little girls.
So the short version is: this little paper unfortunately means the exact opposite of what you think it means, socially speaking. It was put up because grown-ass men get all pissy when it’s suggested that they like a thing for girls.

HAHAHAHAAAAAA. It’s nice to know I can’t get my rights respected, but a bunch of childish, entitled white cis men can! I’m so proud to live in this country with its progressive understanding of privilege and when to tell a bunch of whiny man-children to grow the fuck up and/or accept that they like a show meant for little girls (the horror, I know!).

I read the linked article and I don’t want that to be a real sincere thing.
Bronies are the literal worst.


This bums me out. Liking MLP is a perfectly cromulent way to be (it’s so cute! And perky!), but it pisses me off to no end when men like ‘girly’ things oh as long as they publicly disavow any feelings other than dismissiveness towards women and girls. It’s cultural appropriation…a privileged population taking the good bits out of something created by a marginalized population, and putting it through the meat grinder of patriarchal acceptability.To be clear…there’s nothing wrong with liking media. There’s something wrong with denigrating the creators and originally-intended audience of that media.

why is defeating the gender binary not good when it’s boys asking for “girl toys”never in a million years do I want to defend bronies but what’s the difference between them throwing a hissy fit when being asked for toys based on gender and someone else throwing a hissy fityou’re both upset for the same reason and have the same goals here. this isn’t to say there is nothing wrong with bronies / co-opting a children’s show / whatever but if it’s only a gender binary defeating achievement when certain people do it…?

I haven’t followed all of the backstory or whatever but I don’t get the mental gymnastics needed to say a group can’t take a show from it’s “intended audience” in literally the same breath as saying mcdonalds shouldn’t label toys by their intended audience

The difference is that bronies get listened to.  The difference is that this is not a permanent change; it’s only going to not be boy vs girl toys for this promotion.  Because bronies couldn’t be assed to care about this issue unless their masculinity is being impinged upon.

It&#8217;s because there&#8217;s no indication that bronies give a fuck beyond this instance of not wanting to be asked if they want a girl toy.  It&#8217;s because they can throw a tantrum and get their own way in this particular instance.  Do you really think that this is a sea change for McDonald&#8217;s?  That from now on they&#8217;re going to stop asking if you want a boy or girl toy for every other promotion? Never mind the unfairness that is adults attempting to collect a children&#8217;s toy,  where they can drive to a dozen different McDonald&#8217;s but kids can&#8217;t.  I think it&#8217;s taking away a finite supply of toys from the people for whom they were designed: children. Sorry,  honey,  you didn&#8217;t get a Luna because the man in front of you bought a dozen happy meals &amp; got them all.  It just reinforces that adult men get what they want,  and everyone else be damned.
