another way to ruin a pop classic with teenage angst. Cyndi Lauper would be turning in her freshly dug grave
ah yEs, those angsty teenage years when overdramatic girls go through that oh-so-trivial phase of believing they deserve fundamental human rights a hah ha *wipes a stray tear of mirth*
Cyndi Laupers not even dead
Cyndi Lauper is a long-time activist for human rights and would most likely be holding the damn sign herself
"It is not a dirty word, "feminism." I just think that women belong in the human population with the same rights as everybody else. … The problem is, "A feminist looks like this, or is like that." We are taught not to like ourselves as women, we are taught what we’re supposed to look like, what our measurements are supposed to be. I never hear what measurements men are supposed to be. Just women.”
- Cyndi Lauper
Has this dude ever even listened to the lyrics of that song?
I come home in the morning light
My mother says when you gonna live your life right
Oh mother dear we’re not the fortunate ones
And girls they want to have fun
Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest of the world
I want to be the one to walk in the sun
Oh girls they want to have fun
Girls having fun is feminist as fuck.
Girls having fun is a lot harder than boys having fun, because of all the barriers society places between girls and having carefree fun.
This is not a blow-off song:
That’s all they really want
When the working day is done
Girls - they want to have fun
It’s about being allowed to have some time for you after you’ve completed your commitments, and how frustrating it is to be hemmed in all the time. ‘That’s all they really want’ isn’t saying ‘women are just frivolous’, OK, it’s saying ‘Give us a BREAK - we aren’t asking for that much! Being an independent woman isn’t being joyless, we just want what you take for granted: fun’. JFC.

An attorney for the family of John Crawford III, the man fatally shot by police in an Ohio Walmart store, says surveillance video contradicts the police department’s version of events. Officers say Crawford refused to drop the pellet gun he was holding, but the video allegedly shows them gunning him down “on sight.”
Crawford, 22, was shopping at the Beavercreek, Ohio store on Aug. 5 whenpolice responded to another customer’s report that Crawford was carrying an AR-15 rifle. He was actually holding a pellet air rifle he had just picked up from a shelf in the store’s toy department.
Attorney Michael Wright says he viewed surveillance video that shows Crawford was facing away from the cops and talking to his girlfriend on the phone when police spotted him, and didn’t have the toy gun raised. Hetold WDTN Crawford probably didn’t see or hear the officers before he was shot.
"John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,"Wright said, according to Reuters.

I find it interesting how society doesn’t care when the media sexualizes women, when men sexualizes women, when school and the government sexualizes women. But the second a woman is in control and sexualizes herself willingly it’s wrong and disgusting.
