Woah this is actually… a fantastic explanation. I’m impressed.
Bless this post.
This is pretty spot on and brought up some issues with female/male-bodied that I hadn’t thought about before.
yes or yes
dont worry, if youre just NICE enough to your opressor SURELy theyll just, GIVE you freedom, out of the kindness of their wonderful filthy shit hearts, just as long as you comply perfectly with their ideations/expectations of you whilst simultaneously and constantly expressing your IMPRESSIVE and UNDYINGgratitude for the GREAT WAYS your oppressor has thrown you a scrap or two and called it equality
i would much rather be the “obnoxious feminist girl” than be complicit in my own dehumanization, thanks
People are so vulnerable at night. They’re willing to spill out their souls to anyone willing to listen. They have desires to do things that never cross their mind when the sun is in the sky.

Women feel more guilt than men, not because of some weird chromosomal issue but because they have a history of being blamed for other people’s behavior. You get hit, you must have annoyed someone; you get raped, you must have excited someone; your kid is a junkie, you must have brought him up wrong.

If you step on my foot, you need to get off my foot.
If you step on my foot without meaning to, you need to get off my foot.
If you step on my foot without realizing it, you need to get off my foot.
If everyone in your culture steps on feet, your culture is horrible, and you need to get off my foot.
If you have foot-stepping disease, and it makes you unaware you’re stepping on feet, you need to get off my foot. If an event has rules designed to keep people from stepping on feet, you need to follow them. If you think that even with the rules, you won’t be able to avoid stepping on people’s feet, absent yourself from the event until you work something out.
If you’re a serial foot-stepper, and you feel you’re entitled to step on people’s feet because you’re just that awesome and they’re not really people anyway, you’re a bad person and you don’t get to use any of those excuses, limited as they are. And moreover, you need to get off my foot.
See, that’s why I don’t get the focus on classifying harassers and figuring out their motives. The victims are just as harassed either way.

“Fuck the closet as a metaphor. It is nothing more than dumb carpentry and dull hinges, an illusion that blames the oppressed for not opening the door and walking away.”

Maybe we should say “stepping out of the prison” instead.
The great thing about transmisogynistic feminism is that it’s really easy to build a movement that attempts to reduce women to genitalia. There already is one! It’s called “patriarchy.”
So fucking tired of PoC who are lucky enough to not experience racism, or just simply too blind to see it, trying to shit on the rest of us and our experiences. “I don’t care about racism, so why do you?”. BECAUSE IT HURTS ME. It hurts my family. It hurts my friends. It hurts my people.
Stop sipping the damn kool aid, or at least shut the hell up and don’t help uphold the white supremacy.
If you don’t experience racism, then thank the lord, because that is amazing. But we’re not all that lucky, so why can’t you have solidarity with us?
3 percent of the decision-making in media comes from women. That means 97 percent of how women are portrayed is decided on by men.
Independent Lens, PBS
“Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines” (via ihopeyoucontinue4ever)
It also means that 97 percent of how men are portrayed in media are decided on by men. Something to remind MRAs and their ilk of when they complain about the stereotype of men as inept slobs, bad fathers, etc in media and advertising.
Men have the power. So when we men are shat on by the powers that be you don’t get to try and blame women for that.
