Feminism Terminology

Throughout my years of studying feminism, gender, and sexuality; I have never found a terminology list that fully satisfies me. This is my attempt to make one. No list can be completely comprehensive, because everyone has their own unique way of defining themselves. However, I hope this list is a good tool for people new to these subjects.

I highly recommend reading all of the terminology before following any of the links, because you will have a much better chance of understanding said articles! However, you really should follow the “see more” links after reading all of the terminology. Those articles give a lot of depth and clarification about their respective subjects.

I am not using terms that include [x]phobia/[x]phobic because systems of oppressions are not phobias, and using such language perpetuates ableism. However, some of the articles I link to do use those terms. I am not disagreeing with the content of any of the articles I link, merely the terminology.

Height Differences in The Hobbit

I am making this post to clarify the height differences in The Hobbit trilogy. Many fanworks are grossly inaccurate in their portayal of the difference, and a number of people have made fun of Tauriel and Kili for it.

Legolas's Family History

This essay follows my Tolkien Canon Policy. Anything that does not contradict the text(s) above it is considered canon. Lord of the Rings is the first tier; The Hobbit, The Silmarillion, and The Children of H̼rin are the second tier (as all Рin some way Рwere not fully complete like LotR; however they are all individual books in their own right); and all other works and notes are in the third tier.

It may stand out to you that I do not use any quotes from The Hobbit in this essay. That is because this essay is about the bigger Middle-earth mythology, and The Hobbit was not written with the intention of being part of the bigger mythology, thus leading to numerous inconsistencies that cannot be reconciled.

So I was reading an essay that argued for Thranduil and Celeborn being related (here; the author is called Gwed). Some of the information was inaccurate, but it got me thinking, and looking at the texts again. The implications I found were fascinating. Lets take a journey through elven history, shall we?
