i know not all feminists are like this

In case people didn’t know:

If you don’t have an account with Youtube; you will have videos blocked from your viewing due to their censorship bullshit automatically, they use a auto-restrictive-mode, you need to be logged in and turn restrictive mode off to view all videos.

Oddly enough they allow fake news and race baiting channels like CNN, MTV news, Buzzfeed, The Young Turks videos to show and hate speech by BLM, SJWs and feminists.

Anyone of a different opinion, like my bisexual black female friend, or my conservative or moderate liberal friends, non-political gamer channels, atheists channels even

I grew up in a world that had a thing called free speech, which allowed hateful people like SJWs, feminists, leftists to spew their rhetoric and build their -cults- communities AND now they decide they deem what is “hate speech” (a thing that doesn’t exists, you don’t have the right to be offended, everyone has a right to free speech) but youtube is a corporation, a business and they can do what they want…… but conservatives, rightwingers and dissenters aren’t allowed that same right

So much for “equality” eh?

Bigot Hypocrites.

even with me hating the thought of it ill have to start doing sexual things for money my family is very low on cash and theres no other way they dont know ill probably just say that im giving english lessons or something i feel like a fraud of a feminist but i need to take care of my family

I’m so sorry, anon, you’re not a fraud of a feminist for that ❤ We all have to do unfeminist things for survival. If there’s any way we can help you out please let us know! And try to stay as safe as possible.

i know as a feminist im supposed to always say that feminism is there to help men too. that the toxic masculinity they’re taught at birth is a burden for us all and that they go through things too. and i get that. i really do and i really do feel for men who have to live their lives feeling like they can’t fully express themselves or their emotions. i am heart broken by the way society raises our boys to suppress suppress suppress. but you know what? at the end of the day, it’s the women who are at the receiving end of their shortcomings. the violence and emotional abuse rooted in hypermasculnity are projected on us and we bear the brunt of it. so excuse me if it’s not really on the top of my list to help men feel like they can cry.

Trans continue to do the absolute most! Biological women are expected to cape for you but where are y'all on cis women's issues? Y'all so fucking annoying.

Excuse me? I don’t know what planet you live on but it’s been my experience that trans women are overwhelmingly supportive of abortion rights. Maybe the reason why you don’t see droves of trans women at your pro-choice rallies is because we’re a tiny, marginalized minority among women so maybe there just aren’t a lot of trans women to turn out in the first place.

Oh yeah… and the fact that for the last several decades people like you have been doing your damnedest to make mainstream feminist spaces–like your aforementioned pro-choice rallies–as hostile as possible towards trans women.

Talk about a goddamn catch-22, eh?

This is so important. So so important. Princeless is the comic we all need AND deserve.

Like I’m not black, I’m native and get my hair from my Irish family. My hair is so curly and frizzy and all around unmanageable. Like Mia from Princess Diaries BEFORE the whole “makeover” where her ugly hair is straightened and made pretty and perfect. I know watching that messed me up as a kid, I can’t even imagine what it would be like for other kids whose hair was worse.

Kids need to see stuff like this where they see the character struggle with accepting their hair before realizing that it’s like them, stubborn and going to do what it wants, not what someone else wants. I went through the straightening and killing my hair within an inch of its life just to have good hair.

You all need to stop what you’re doing and read Princeless right now because this is not the only perfect storyline it has plus the main character is a WOC as is the rest of her family and each character has an amazing and diverse development. One of them even has an abusive boyfriend and they deal with that amazingly just go read it now.

Hi, my name is Breanne. I am a student in college and currently taking a Feminist Theories course. My professor assigned us your book "Bad Feminist" as one of our text for the semester and so I became familiar with your work. In particular I was reading your essay "The Careless Language of Sexual Violence." My question: If proper sex education were taught in all schools, would it have any affect on the current status of rape culture within our society? Or are the two mutually exclusive.

More robust sex education would go a long way if it included a great deal of information on consent. So many people, across the gender spectrum, just don’t know what active consent is or looks like.

I overheard one of the older ladies (in her 50s) at my flamenco lessons today say that “women have forgotten how to dance sensually, All this feminism, look what it’s done!” (she was being very serious)

I fought back the urge to tell her that gurl, being a feminist doesn’t mean that you can’t like pretty dresses, or love your makeup, or like how you look in a tight dress, or know how to shake that arse or jiggle those boobies, or dance sensually to the music.

Feminism doesn’t make women less feminine, or less sensual, or less anything. It’s about equality of the sexes, about paying women what they deserved to get paid, about letting them dress how they want to dress without judging whether their skirt is too long or too short, without slut shaming them or calling them prudes. Feminism is about telling men they’re no less of a man if it’s their wife who brings home the bacon, that they can be dancers and not be afraid of being called a “sissy”, that colours aren’t gender-coded, that a woman doesn’t have to dream of being a princess, that she can be a mathematician, a scientist, a lawyer, a judge… 

It’s not about women wanting or pretending to be men, or becoming more masculine. It’s about letting everyone be who they want to be, freely.

something that really bothers me is like. how prominent misogyny is in trans dude spaces it’s so bizarre like i’ll scroll a lot of other trans guy blogs and they’re reblogging those posts written by people who think misandry is real and like. a societal power lmfao and i literally saw one say ‘men need support in this increasingly gynocentric world’ (??) and i dont even fuckin know what that means??? like i know what it means but what??? in big posts giving tips to other trans guys they’re like ‘you don’t have to be a ~feminist~ but like. treat women okay lol’ and share that post thats like 'support men who yell and break things when angry’ like. what. 'support men who are hairy and masculine and like doing athletic things!!’ not even about trans guys but guys in general as though cis guys need to know that being masc is okay??? why are y'all like this did i miss the memo what the hell. from one trans masc person to another y'all literally sound like meninists it’s embarassing and harmful cut that shit out

Feminism is cancer

Disclaimer: I know not all feminists are like this, believe me. However, the squeaking wheel gets the oil, and the loudest majority will get my attention. Here I am talking about my issues with modern day feminism, rather than the idea of equality in itself.

-I don’t see how we need feminists in first world countries. While there are young girls being forcefully circumcised in Africa, feminists here want to focus on an imaginary wage gap, and going to marches naked.

-You can say ‘oh it’s about equality’ all you want, but you’ll hardly see feminists discussing men’s issues. The bias against male rape and abuse victims, the normalization of male rape, because 'they’re supposed to want it’. How about father’s being forced to pay child support, even if the child was proven not to be theirs? Or male rape victims being forced to pay for a kid that resulted from sexual assault?

-Let me talk about female pedos for a second. I’ve actually heard feminists excuse an adult woman having sex with an underaged boy because 'he probably enjoyed it’ or 'it’s every little boys dream’. If the genders were reversed, you’d have statutory rape.

-Stop blaming the patriarchy, an imaginary system, for all of your problems. I didn’t get that job I applied for, a man got it instead. Must’ve been the patriarchy. I didn’t get into that college I applied for. Fuck the patriarchy, amiright?

-Stop talking about man spreading like it’s an actual issue. Men have balls between their legs, that are extremely sensitive to pressure and temperature. So, yes, they need to spread their legs a bit. I’m not even going to go into buzzfeed’s bullshit video on women spreading their legs excessively in public in order to 'prove a point’.

-Sorry, but no matter how 'oppressed’ you feel, you cannot generalize cishet white men as dirty pigs. That’s almost like…you’re putting people down for factors they can’t control….huh….

-If a man looks at you, that’s not rape. If a man catcalls you, while it’s a slimy thing to do, that is not rape. If a man accidentally brushed by you while walking, that’s not rape. This is coming from someone who has been raped. Stop using the word in any context you deem fit.

-Hate to bring politics up, but some of you wanted to vote for Hillary, due to the fact that she has a vagina. That’s it. A female candidate? Fuck looking at her policies, fuck watching the debates, she’s a woman? Cast my ballot right fuckin now!

 Does It Pass The Aila Test?

We all know the rules of The Bechdel Test. In recent years, fans of more feminist-friendly films have included their own character tests, like The Mako Mori Test, The Furiosa Test, The Sexy Lamp Test, the list goes on. While these are all helpful (though comical) tools feminists have used to criticize media narratives, very few of them seem to empower or apply when viewing Indigenous and Aboriginal women in media narratives / storytelling.

As a Native woman, I’ve experienced disappointment and heartache from the way Native women were represented on film, television, cartoons, and other forms of media. From stereotypical “Indian princesses” to the distressing amount of physical and sexual violence in live action period pieces, it felt that a Native woman was not a character you were meant to love and root for. She was never a character you were supposed to relate to or want to be. In almost every role she’s in, she cannot exist without being a prop for another character’s story, and if she has a “happy ending,” it’s usually in the arms of a white colonist or settler.

I’ve created the Aila Test to bring my own concerns to the table when feminists criticize media. Not only should these issues be analyzed and addressed, but content creators who write about Indigenous / Aboriginal women should consider writing characters who pass this test. We need them now, more than ever.

To pass the Aila Test, your film / animation / comic book / novel / etc, must abide by these three important rules:

1. Is she an Indigenous / Aboriginal woman who is a main character…

2. Who  DOES NOT fall in love with a white man…

3. And DOES NOT end up raped or murdered at any point in the story.

Do you know characters that pass the Aila Test? Please submit them to this page!

Am I a faux feminist for all the times I’ve kept my mouth closed, voice tight & small like a pearl in the presence of men who say misogynistic things? Is it possible to fight the patriarchy quietly? I don’t know. I don’t know. All I know is how complicated it is to feel so small yet so powerful at the same time.

Can liberal feminists stop insisting that any criticism of Islam is bad? 

Like, I, as a Middle Eastern Muslim, of course support refugees coming to this country (from countries largely fucked up by US cold war policies but that’s a topic for another post) and I, as a reasoning person, know that if all 1.2 billion Muslims were terrorists, or even a majority, the world would be a lot worse. However, Islam, like most religions, is deserving of criticism, since many institutions upheld in Muslim majority countries are justified by Islam, and are countries with some of the least personal freedom. I’m tired of liberal feminists telling me I’m Islamophobic when I criticize Islamic culture and countries when I am from one of those countries. I mean, if you’re a middle class Muslim woman living in New York City, I’m sure you might think that the hijab is empowering or something, but we have to be able to recognize that it’s used as a tool of oppression and this whole idea of modesty comes from patriarchal norms that make it ok to want to control women’s sexuality. 

These days, it’s really popular to criticize Christian fundamentalists, and as a result a lot of people are seeing the errors of their ways and moving more toward being less uber traditionalist and being open minded, why aren’t we being as critical of Islam? There are a lot of parts of Islam I find beautiful, that have helped me through my darkest hours, but that doesn’t absolve it, or any institutionalized religion, from criticism. 

you know what’s always kinda weird and i guess hypocritical is that MRA/antifems and other male-posi types will tell me or other males that feminists hate us and we shouldn’t support it, so like apparently we shouldn’t support female liberation because feminists “hate” us, but women should support males despite the fact that males hate them (and you could pull a hell of a lot more misogynistic quotes from males and a lot of more misogynistic actions than you could ever find ~misandry~ in feminism)….. like y’all so transparent af.

In search of either POC Witches OR LGBTQ Witches.

I would love to get to know you! And make lasting friendships. I love all of the witches I’ve met, but I find a lack in POC witches and LGBTQ witches.

I post a lot of witch related things to my blog, but I also post nature, music, Steven universe, feminist and informational things as well.

Like or reblog this and I’ll follow you!!!!

Calling all Midwestern radical feminists!

Flyover staters, the frozen chosen, beflanneled feminists, dontcha know we deserve to create our own events, meetups, and local organizing just like those in larger metropolitan areas?

If you feel safe to do so, please reblog if you live in one of the twelve Midwestern states! Let’s connect with each other online! Let’s actually do something offline for ourselves and females everywhere.

I’m Ohio based, so Kentucky can come too. Let’s get this going!
