"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….
First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.
In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.
In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”

And by last 200 years, you mean since the dawn of time.
this is a good time to note that if you don’t think trans women are women i’d like you to get the fuck away from my blog
god i hate when people defend doing anti-feminist things that are totally in line with patriarchal shit by using some garbage libfem “feminism is about women making choices!!!” lines
your brand of feminism is fucking worthless
news flash: choices don’t exist in a vacuum and jut because a woman does it by her own accord doesn’t make it ~liberating~ or beneficial
Reminder that the basis of the terf argument is that trans women are not oppressed for being trans people.
Which is why their arguments are Always hollow. Reality denying is the first step.
The violence comes when they explain why trans women are not oppressed.
When TERFs say “sorry about your dick”, just ask them why they are sorry for themselves…
You cannot be for trans rights if you are not for trans lives.
You cannot say you are for LGBT rights if you are not for trans rights.
That just means you are anti-LGBT.
Just a reminder that Pride Parades are technically a call to remember Stonewall.
That is why June is Pride Season. The first ones were organized around the end of June because that is when Stomewall was.
And that the purpose is to show our pride.
So, if you stop one moment…
You realize that Pride Parades are celebrations of what trans people of color, sex workers, and marginalized folks did.
Still cheesed off x

joan rivers is a crusty racist old white who has made fun of domestic abuse and who said that the Palestinians deserve to be wiped out. i am not about to feel sorry for her just because satan is calling her home. let her gag
So sick of ppl talkin about how minority social spheres only “make segregation worse” by “isolating themselves” like how about u just admit that it makes u uncomfortable that minority ppl can organize outside of ur chaperoning and are perfectly happy not being tokenized
"Having a mental illness doesn’t make you an expert" means "yes, you have a mental illness, but you’re crazy, what would you know about it?"
especially when you take into consideration that the person saying it is almost always neurotypical, so there’s the the not-so-subtle implication of ”you’re crazy, but i’m rational and even-minded, so it’s only obvious that i’d be a better spokesperson for the issues surrounding mental illness”
