"To All That Oppose Feminism"
-A Slam Poem:

Oh, I’m sorry.
Did my feminism offend you?
Does the fact that I stand for equal opportunity, disgust you?
How about the hundreds of thousands of children that get abused, murdered, molested and are malnourished?
Do they annoy you, too?
Is it the fact that I stomp on the idiotic patriarchy that runs this country, that you go out of your way to go against my cause?
Do you hate me?
Or do you hate what I support?
Because if that’s the case, then you are quite the jerk, old sport.
Do you fear women that can stand for themselves?
Is that the problem?
Or is it your egotistical selfishness that you are concerned for?
Hey ladies,
The ones who “don’t need feminism”,
why do you think you have degrees?
A corporate job?
Why can you buy a car or a home?
Why do you have birth control?
Why can you express your anti-feminist mindset or, any mindset at all?
Oh, right.
It’s all because of feminism.
Hey people,
the ones in my class that just rolled their eyes because I said the word “feminist”,
screw you.
I stand for little girls and boys all around the world that are denied the rights of humanity.
The men and women, too.
I stand for every victim of rape, sexual harassment, and sexual abuse.
I stand for the elimination of gender roles, and for all to have the right of self- determination.
I stand for stopping the sexualization of female bodies.
And I stand for not using what they wear as an excuse.
I stand for the women, who still do not receive equal pay and opportunity.
Pro-choice?
I’m for that.
And to all the government officials that are trying to make abortion illegal; you can keep your politics out of my genitals.
For everyone in the LGBTQ community and for everyone we have lost, and for everyone we will unfortunately continue to loose;
I stand for you too.
Feminism is a great thing, and I severely pity those against it.
Who are you to tell me that I cannot be equal with a man; any gender as a matter of fact?
Do you think that what is in between your legs defines your power?
Well if you do, I got some news for you son (especially you, meninists);
the vaginal muscles will probably squeeze the patriarchy out of the overly sensitive meninist testes.
But you know, I don’t hate men.
I stand for men to be able to cry, and show pain; to give them the support they need when they are raped.
I stand for men being able to wear what they want, act how they want (in reasonable manner), and to work as whoever they want.
I stand for male benefits, as well as mine and those of others too.
I fight for women to go into politics, medicine, and engineering.
But if you want to stay at home and maybe start a family on top of that,
then be my guest.
I am for better education, nourishment, health, knowledge, equality, fairness, and so much more.
But what do you,
one who opposes feminism,
what do you stand for?

aly-fucking-locke asked: hey, Do you know of any good books on equality? like gender, LGBT, race and so on? Love your blog by the way :)

Thanks :) Great topic, and I believe I can compile a list on this one! I’m going to divide them up below in the various categories you mentioned! Hope they help!

If you want to know why I picked one for a certain category, just let me know! I’d be happy to explain. Thanks for the question! Happy reading!

I can’t believe I’m posting this on here!
A recent anon asked about my weight loss, so I figured I’d post about it publicly.

Back in 2012, I weighed in at approximately 285 pounds. I was extremely unhappy and unhealthy. So, I decided to do something about it! I didn’t go on some gimmicky diet like Weight Watchers or Dr Bernstein, (not like they won’t work, they just weren’t for me) but I did completely change my eating habits. I cut out as much salt from my diet as I could, same with sugar and starchy foods. I limited my dairy intake, and drastically cut down my portion sizes.

I worked out every single day. For me, the treadmill was it! For 45 minutes a day, I would speed-walk on a steep incline, carrying a 30lb body bar.

From February 3rd 2012 - July 3rd 2012, I lost 80 pounds. Since then, my total weight loss has reached 125 pounds. For the first time in my life, I am happy with the way I look, and feel. I don’t live my life around food anymore, and it’s an amazing feeling! I enjoy eating healthy now, and I can have treats and not feel guilty. It’s all about portion control and moderation!

Anyone out there can do what I’ve done. Trust me! I was someone that had many failed attempts under their belt…

A person that would rather stay at home with a book isn’t better than someone who’d prefer to be at a party. 

A person who is sexually active isn’t better than someone who’s a virgin.

A man who prefers masculine things isn’t better than a man that prefers feminine things.

A woman who prefers feminine things isn’t better than a woman who prefers masculine things. 

A man who’d rather be a footballer isn’t better than one who aspires to do ballet. 

A woman who would rather be an model isn’t better than one who’d rather be an engineer 

Difference doesn’t mean superiority. 

Fighting for Equality Made Me a Player by Patty Stonefish

If patriarchy affects us all (which it does, regardless of gender) and we are all suffering from this disease (which we are), then why are we as women fighting for equality? We want to be equal to a patriarchal society’s idea of a man?

Maybe in the social equality sense…equal pay, rights, etc. That is all correct, but what about morally? Are we fighting to act like a patriarchal society’s idea of a man? Or are we fighting to reclaim and redefine what it means to be woman? I sure hope it’s the latter. That being said, I used to take it as the former, and I know I can’t be the only one out there.
There was a time in my life when I fought for equality as a woman. Now I fight for redefining gender “roles” and balance. Lets talk about my time fighting for equality though, and where I went wrong.
