Sing it with me everybody:
*plays cheerful piano chords*
Trans men who do not “pass” still have male privilege
*piano playing gets intense*
and cannot experience misogyny of any form
*piano gets soft, singing gets whispery and heartfelt*
the only real prejudice you face is transphobia
stop trying to invade women’s spaces you are misgendering yourself you useless dish rag
So when my Mum told me I needed to lose weight when I was a kid so men would like me, that wasn’t misogyny? When I wasn’t allowed to play sports because they were too rough, that wasn’t misogyny? When I was catcalled in the street, that wasn’t misogyny?
Look, you’re wrong, if society sees you and perceives you as a woman. You will face misogyny. Whether someone faces misogyny or not is not based on their internal identity. An internal identity doesn’t shield you from sexism, it’s not a magic shield.
You are aware by women’s spaces, you also mean bathrooms right? Or maybe for a minority of trans men, women’s prisons?
What do you think would happen to a pre-bottom surgery trans men in a men’s prison?
I own my history and I know my history and you can’t take my experiences away from me. I faced misogyny, I still face misogyny and your ideology is based on absolute bullshit. The only reason you’re saying it is because you don’t want to see intersections of oppression. If you admit trans men faced misogyny pre-transition, you have to admit that trans women didn’t. If you have to admit that trans men faced misogyny, you have to admit we’re an oppressed minority that deserves protection.
You don’t want to do that though because you want a sacrificial lamb.
This is just an attempt to silence us and you can fuck off if you think I’ll ever let you silence my history for cheap social justice points.
So over all these grey-haired wrinkly sacks of shit basically falling out of their stupid over-sized trucks to stare at me on my morning bike rides. I’m always wearing sunglasses and facing forward so they don’t realize I’m lurking them, but ugh it’s so disgusting how almost every old dude I pass does it.
My fat ass is all sweaty and gross and wearing dumb raggedy clothes and they still have to make a point to break their necks and stare me down just to remind me that men are repulsive turds who never quit. It’d be really nice to be able to leave the house without feeling intimidated and dehumanized.
Pushing your own boundaries sexually to please your partner is not an expression of ‘love’. Making yourself uncomfortable, making sexual ‘sacrifices’ (i.e. engaging in kinks you’re not comfortable doing) is not being a good partner. Being a good partner does not involve making yourself sexually uncomfortable or letting your partner coerce you into doing things you don’t want to do, and don’t ever let someone try to convince you otherwise.
OH MY GOD.
this is the most important part of television history AND one of the most appropriate responses to white ppl trying apologize for their white privilege
Always reblog :-)
I absolutely cannot stand Michael Fassbender and I’m so pissed off that he’s all over my dash. He is complete and utter trash.
His ex filed a restraining order against him for breaking her nose. On another occasion – “Michael allegedly dragged her alongside their car one night after they had an argument about one of her ex-boyfriends … causing her to twist her left ankle, blow out her left knee cap and burst an ovarian cyst”.
Keira Knightley filmed a spanking scene with him and said “I’ve got a security guard outside. You touch me and he’s gonna break your legs!” Michael’s reply to this? “Keira, you’re tied to a bed. You’re not really in a position to say that.”
For fucks sake are we just gonna pretend these things didn’t happen?
one thing girls have real solidarity on is their periods:
- we dont judge someone if they prefer pads or tampons over the other
- we always have extras and we’re always willing to give them to a girl in need
- we teach each other about cramp remedies and how to get out bloodstains
- we do pants checks for each other
Lmao started threading my brothers eyebrows and he started screaming cause it hurt
I love when people use the phrase “be a man”
No. Be a damn woman and realize we go through more pain
I use Advantage on my cats for flea preventative/treatment. They do test on animals, unfortunately, but I don’t know of any effective flea medicine that does not. At the time being, it seems to be something that is unavoidable until there is an alternative. Some people use natural remedies, but I have never had any luck with those. One important thing, though, is never use the cheap kind of flea medicine you can get in regular stores — those have been proven to cause horrible reactions in animals (like Hartz and the like).
I view it the way I view humans taking necessary medications that are tested on animals. You do what you have to do to take care of yourself and the animals in your care. If your cat is infested with fleas, she is going to be miserable and her health will be suffering, so it’s important to treat her. You do the best you can, and avoid it whenever practical or possible, but don’t let yourself or your animals go untreated when in need.
The Newton County animal shelter in Indiana is going to be shut down.
Why is this such a big deal? Because It’s a no kill shelter.
Newton County does not want to fund a no kill shelter anymore.
The dogs in there have until August 1st, until they are killed.
So people need to adopt them, or help fund it, and get it to $3000.
No, not all feminists are lesbians. But if we were, how would that make the fight any less valid? Is our purpose somehow solidified and scaled by how much we are personally invested in men? And if that is so, don’t you now see why we need feminism?
