gahhh i dont even know whats going on in life (read: feminism).
i’ve always identified with a lot of radical feminist theory.
i don’t hate trans* people, and I hope I can be an ally to the trans* community. I acknowledge that im probably transphobic, the same way that as a white person, im probably racist. but its something that im trying to deal with and educate myself about.
but seeing all this rad fem hate on tumblr lately has really upset me. why cant we just acknowledge that these people are transphobic? why do we have to take down the whole group? there are great aspects of radical feminism.
i don’t believe there is a collective female experience. i acknowledge i have a lot of power and privilege. i love intersectionality.
i believe a woman is anyone who identifies as a woman. i dont give a shit about whats between your legs.
now people are going to say im not a radical feminist… maybe im not. who the fuck even knows any more.
i guess what im trying to say is, i consider myself to be a radical feminist, and i do not stand by people who are being transphobic, or believe a woman is a person with a uterus. does this mean i am not a radical feminist? does being a radical feminist mean you must hate trans* people? i don’t think so, but that’s what’s people are saying, so maybe im wrong.
i’d like to hear others thoughts on this.
You are a real radical feminist.
