Your feminism isn’t worth shit if it doesn’t defend trans women
• they’re fucking women
A feminist and an anti-feminist walk into a bar. They sit down and have a drink together because they’re adults who don’t let personal views effect their decisions on who they should or should not associate with.
can’t wait to go willingly spend my time with people who hold toxic views and treat me and my friends like garbage so that someone online thinks i’m an adult
But really you could start 101 articles on feminism with talking about the racism and marginalization of women of colour in western feminism, you can talk about the lesbophobia, you can talk about how feminism fails poor women by inordinate focusing on inclusion of women in high levels of capitalism- these are so much more important than reassuring straight women and talking about how ‘feminism can help men too!’.

we really need kick-ass female protagonists who aren’t girly but don’t denounce femininity as silly and put down other women. like you know, “this isn’t my thing but i don’t think you’re weak for it” because we have too many of these protagonists who degrade people by devaluing femininity and that’s fucked up. we have plenty of “you can be feminine and hardcore” but we really need “you can be a girl who isn’t feminine but doesn’t hate other girls”
I don’t give a fuck about cis white girls who don’t shave their armpits I’m here for black/latinx girls with dark coarse peach fuzz on they upper lip IM here for trans girls who don’t shave their beards and legs IM HERE FOR woc with back hair, side burns and face fuzz
As long as me and my sisters keep getting called gorillas for being brown and black and hairy I can’t be here for cis white girls with a strip of hair on their armpits
