genderequality

Can we all just appreciate this awesome quote xD @caitlyn_cannon this is by far the my number one pick as far as senior quotes goes! xD today was the last day of high school. I can’t believe it’s finally over! #UCBerkeley here I come! #feminism #feminist #equality #quote #genderequality #yearbookquote #seniorquote #senioryear #itsover

I don’t get how anyone can be anti-feminist since feminism is the idea that everyone, regardless of gender, should have equal rights. How can you possibly object to that? How can anyone legitimately think that their mothers, sisters, and daughters don’t deserve the same rights as their fathers, brothers, and sons… 

Gender Equality

please read the whole thing

This is not something that should have to be discussed.

This is not something that should be fought for.

This is not something that should be questioned.

GENDER EQUALITY IS SOMETHING THAT SHOULD AND SHOULD ALWAYS HAVE BEEN THE NORM .

GENDER EQUALITY SHOULD AND SHOULD ALWAYS GO HAND IN HAND WITH RESPECTING EACH OTHER AS HUMAN BEINGS WHO ARE EVERY BIT AS IMPORTANT, CAPABLE, AND WORTHY AS ANYONE ELSE.

GENDER EQUALITY SHOULD MEAN DROPPING THE PREFIX “TRANS” FROM THE PHRASES TRANSGIRL,TRANSWOMAN,TRANSBOY, AND TRANSMAN. INSTEAD MAN,WOMAN OR WOMYN DEPENDING ON YOUR SPELLING PREFERENCE,BOY AND GIRL ARE SUFFICIENT.

GENDER EQUALITY IS WHEN A PERSON WANTS TO USE CERTAIN PRONOUNS TO DESCRIBE OR ADDRESS THEMSELVES THEN OTHERS RESPECT AND COMPLY WITH THEIR WISHES WITHOUT QUESTION OR HESITATION.

AND ULTIMATELY GENDER EQUALITY MEANS IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT GENDER YOU ARE OR WHAT PREFERENCE YOU HAVE,IT MEANS YOU ARE A PERSON AND WILL BE TREATED LIKE A PERSON.

Op-ed: I'm a Trans Man Who Doesn't 'Pass' — And You Shouldn't Either
To paraphrase Janet Mock: Trans people aren't 'passing' as men or women. We're being.

A great article on the systems of ‘passing’ and how problematic and oppressive the ideal of 'passing’ is to those who are trans* or otherwise gender diverse / non-binary.

Gender diversity is not something to 'hide’ or to be ashamed of. We should not strive to pass, but rather, strive to be ourselves.
