All I hear all fucking day is how lesbians are fat and mean. All I hear is that short hair looks bad on girls, that body hair on women is “disgusting,” that “you would be so pretty if you just tried to be feminine!” while men in dresses get praised for their courage. Gender non-conforming women have it like shit.
They use the word equality because feminists make people think about “lesbians that don’t shave.” WHICH IS EXACTLY WHY they should use the title feminist because they DON’T fit that stigma and can show the validity of the movement! -Tammy
What’s your problem with lesbians that don’t shave? Why do you think they make the movement less valid just because they are gender non-conforming and don’t sleep with men? It’s a good thing that person doesn’t use the word feminist because they aren’t one if that’s how they feel. Maybe you should reconsider too.
that fact that revenge porn and leaking of women’s nudes exists at the same time as the readily accessible porn industry is an explicit example of the ways in which women are viewed as sex objects for male consumption. when men are denied the right to our bodies, they steal it. having access to porn literally anywhere at any time for free still doesn’t stop them. to them, it’s their god given right to access women’s bodies at their whim and when we refuse we’re punished for it.
“The fact that white people equate a Starbucks joke to being enslaved, being racially profiled, being stripped of basic human rights, being denied jobs, being treated as less than human, being seen as suspect by default, and being hated from the moment of birth just proves how far they are from seeing our side.
They have hurt feelings while we have dead children.

The “learn how to think” isn’t an accident either. Invalidating emotional response and deeming emotions as lesser than their apparently infallible (because they say so) “reason/logic/objectivism” is a common tactic running through the new atheist/skeptic community. First they declare that emotion is always inferior to logic, then they declare themselves the only people capable of logical/rational/objective response, then they deem their targets inferior for daring to have emotional responses to emotional subjects while ignoring completely the privilege it requires to be able to be “objective” about traumatic, oppressive social systems. Terrorize women their entire lives by making them live in a culture saturated in sexual violence, invalidate their trauma by ranking the violence done against them and pitting victims against each other, and then mock them for being emotionally invested in a subject that is a primary source of fear and anguish in their lives that you have never and will never experience.
plz stop Why can people not realize how misogynistic that is? We don’t say
"stop f*g shaming him for being gay" or "stop [insert racial slur] shaming them" or "stop r*tard shaming them" like what the fuck is wrong with you people
libfems don’t say “stop t*anny shaming”
they’re so hellbent on reclaiming slurs, but can they not fucking understand that it’s fucked up and triggering to some women to be called sluts and whores by other women who think it’s with good intentions? It really fucking pisses me off that it’s rightly unacceptable to say any of those others, but somehow totes fine to say “slutshaming” and “whorehobia” and call it a feminist act
“[Stripping] was a crappy job. I feel really offended when people act like it was some sort of feminist statement. I don’t feel that way at all. There’s a frankenstein monster that came out of the riot grrrl scene, which has always bothered me, which is that sex work is a) eroticised, b) exoticised…
Although I’m talking about it now, I didn’t do it for the story. I want people to know it’s a shitty job, it’s degrading and there are women there who were twice my age, paying for their kids’ tuition so that their daughters could go to gymnastics class. So fuck you, coming in and doing it for five minutes so you can write about it. It’s classist, I guess. Making fun of women who really have to do that job. Wearing a disguise.”—
Yesss. I am so tired of women who are in sex work just for the hell of it being on the front end of those who talk about how great and “empowering” and glamorous it is. Oh, you’re so privileged that you could choose to leave at any time and you didn’t come into this industry out of absolute desperation and you’re not stuck with no way out? You make excessive amounts of money with little effort and you are privileged enough to get to do your job in safety without fear of harassment or abuse?
Good for you. The overwhelming majority of women in the sex industry do NOT ever get the luxury of any of those things. Tell me more about how empowering it is that most of your customers are businessmen who have thousands of dollars to frivolously spend on women who are only there in order to feed their children and not lose their homes and have to cater to these men who know damn well they have power and leverage over these women. Yeah, that’s so cool and really empowering to women, huh?
Let’s please stop pretending like the majority of women have a wonderful experience in sex work and that it isn’t inherently degrading, demeaning, and classist as fuck. Thanks.
“Being fat carries with it a lot of cultural baggage. At the same time, fat people, especially fat women, are supposed to pretend we don’t exist or that we’re not fat. I can’t count the number of times thin people have made reference to fat people or fatness in a negative or joking way in front of me, from the petite woman sitting next to me at the coffee shop complaining about fat people on airplanes, to my friends who routinely make jokes about their “inner fat kids” coming out when they eat a lot, to the women in my family who compete to see who can look the thinnest in family photos. Sometimes it feels like I’m not even there, or that I’m not supposed to be. - Lisa C. Knisely”—
i will never in 1000000 years understand meat eaters who are grossed out by eating certain parts of an animal. like i heard someone the other week shitting their pants over the fact that people eat chicken hearts. which, yeah, that’s fucking appalling, but why does that suddenly phase you…you’re the type of person who is comfortable with eating an animal’s cooked corpse and saying shit like “mmm this skin is so nice and crispy” why are u suddenly the master of morals take a fucken seat
Or “god I want chicken wings so bad~!!”
"I had the best ribs last night, the meat fell right off the bone."
Like, you do realize just two minutes ago you were talking about scraping an animal’s dead flesh off of their bones with your mouth? You kind of resign your right to be grossed out by hearts, feet, or other animal body parts simply because they’re less commonly eaten.
If you have the sense and morality to be appalled by people eating hearts, you should probably also realize it’s just as repulsive and fucked up that you wanna eat someone’s chest or arms or legs or ribs too.
Dear white people, please have all the seats. Y’all make all kinds of excuses to use the n-word, to call me a chink, to tell my brown friends to go back to their country, to make them apologize for 9/11, tell me to get over racism cuz ‘slavery ended 400 years ago’, tell me that ‘I’m just appreciating Indians by wearing this headdress’, oh, but the second BuzzFeed makes a post about liking Starbucks we’re being racist and perpetuating stereotypes. Oh. Okay. That’s cool. You have your television shows and music videos and billboard ads and magazine covers and movies that feature 99.99% white people but the second that I step up and ask if I can have a t.v. show that positively represents Asians I’m asking for too much. That’s just too much to handle right now what with all the white people blazoned across every media outlet. And before any of you think about responding with some baseless comment like, “These stereotypes are really bad; they reinforce segregation” just know that no one is killing you for these stereotypes. It does not affect you getting a job, or being objectified. Your ancestors erased entire histories and communities and you benefit from this so don’t try and read me because I made a joke about you wearing Uggs and liking Starbucks.
Edit: One more thing, don’t use the ‘we’re all human’ excuse or the ‘I have a/n (insert race here) friend’ or the ‘I don’t see colour’ argument. Yes, we’re all human, but our life experiences are different, your small group of (insert race here) friends doesn’t mean you can say whatever slur you want, and ignoring colour invalidates and delegitmizes people’s identity, history, and stories, just cuz you don’t wanna talk about it.
Comment from a buzzfeed post “29 Tumblr Posts About White People That Will Make You Sip Your Tea” and my gosh he preaching
I saw that post and the SO MANY HURT FEELINGS of whiny white people. Fellow whites: Cut that shit out. See also #29 on that list: “Generalizations of white people don’t get them killed.”
Renisha McBride died at the hands of a racist white man (and countless other people of color at the hands of other racist white men, who generally had the support of the white women around them) and you feel equally entitled to be angry because someone made fun of you for liking shows about serial killers and eating bland food. Get over it.
Yeah it’s pretty fucked up how people don’t realize that ideas like oh he doesn’t speak English well = he’s stupid are inherently racist and were pioneered by racists to ensure separation in academic and professional fields. The way you speak English will never be an indicator of your intelligence ever
