luneprism:

When white western men condemn muslim men for misogyny, they’re not doing it because they give a fuck about women, because if they did they’d start by addressing the sexism they perpetuate personally. They don’t give a fuck about women, they want an excuse to be racist.

so let me get this straight. anti-choicers took $500,000 dollars worth of pennies and sealed them in a glass case as a “memorial” to “victims” of abortion. i’m going to say that again. these people have locked away $500,000 dollars as a “tribute” to dead blobs of cells instead of donating that money to actual living breathing children who don’t have basic necessities or homes.

anti-choicers are incredible

#does anybody have a source for this

fuckyeahdisneyfanart:

repeat after me everyone: respecting the basic human dignity of oppressed people is more important than having a philosophical discussion about how anger is supposedly the same thing as hatred and how much better the world would be if we were all just nice to each other!!!!!!

because “don’t fight hate with hate” only means so much when you shout it in the faces of the oppressed, but barely whisper it in the direction of the oppressors

rosiesays:

Oppression is cooking being “women’s work,” while the overwhelming majority of top restaurant chefs are male.

Oppression is fashion being a “silly girl thing,” while the top earning designers and CEOs in fashion are male.

Oppression is reducing women to consumers profiting a male system, even in fields that we supposedly dominate.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anonymous asked: About that quote, saying things that suggest sex=gender can be less transphobic more cissexism. Cissexism is things like "lesbians like vagina" or calling sanitary items girly supplies. They may not be said with transphobic intentions in fact its likely the person saying it may not know about trans people (I didnt till very recently. I would have laughed at people saying people with vaginas a year ago. I know better now) and its therefore not transphobic. Still bad. Not transphobic. Difference.

Thank you for that you’re right although i do think that cissexism does lead to transphobia, I’ll be tagging that post as cissexism now

have you ever equated female to having a vagina and/or breasts or being male to having a penis/pecs/testicles? you’ve contributed to transphobia.

have you ever said anything about men not being able to have periods? you’ve contributed to transphobia.

have you ever laughed at a “man in a dress” joke? you’ve contributed to transphobia.

have you ever invaded a space meant for trans people? you’ve contributed to transphobia.

have you ever invalidated someone’s gender? you’ve contributed to transphobia.

have you ever compared the systematic oppression trans people face every day to a few blogs online that poke fun at cis people and point out what cis people have done to trans people? you’ve contributed to transphobia.

have you ever said or did anything that suggested that being gay was a method of birth control? you’ve contributed to transphobia.

just because you’re not openly hateful towards trans people doesn’t at all mean that you aren’t transphobic or that you don’t contribute to transphobia on a daily basis.

Take up more space as a woman. Take up more time. Take your time. You are taught to hide, censor, move about without messing up decorum for a man’s comfort. Whether it’s said or not, you’re taught balance. Forget that. Displease. Disappoint. Destroy. Be loud, be righteous, be messy. Do not see yourself like glass. Like you could get dirty and clean. You are flesh. You are not constant. You change. Society teaches women to maintain balance and that robs us of our volatility. Our mercurial hearts. Calm and chaos. Love only when needed; preserve otherwise.
