voyboyfanclub:

so TERF was a term that was obviously coined by trans women and a lot of people know it as meaning “trans exclusionary radical feminist” (and i did too until just recently) but it originally stood for “trans exterminatory radical feminist” and TERFs changed the meaning of it to make it sound less horrible

so in case you needed more reason to hate TERFs there you go have some blatant silencing of trans women

I know that this post is serious, but it makes me laugh, and I honestly thought it was sarcasm until I saw who on my dash reblogged it. 

Is it lost on these people that TERF is in itself used to silence women? That this is a term that was coined to discredit and distort radical feminist ideology?

But whatever, assuming the E stands for “exclusionary” (which I did long before anyone even explained it to me) is totally something people should be hated for.

*I’m reposting this rather than reblogging because I don’t care to pop up on these people’s radar. But I’m sourcing it, because I believe in sourcing.

"The invisible labor of women is an incredibly important global issue that deserves better than to be shallowly exploited by a fucking greeting card company. Also, the most oppressive hurdle facing said women isn’t “not getting enough cards.” It’s more like “no affordable child care” and “having to work multiple jobs so she can survive on poverty wages.” But thanks for the shout-out, American Greetings."

alcindora replied to your post “Can someone explain these men and women who claim to be feminists that bringing women to leadership role won’t happen with fanzines, essays and quotes but by actively encouraging them to study business, economy and engineering ? It’s fucking simple.”

Women studying business and economy will only make us capitalist oppressors like the men who do so and that’s not feminist

I don’t think the two are mutually exclusive—you can create fanzines and study business?

So, yeah.

Anonymous asked: I'm a 16 y/o female who recently stumbled across your blog and I've been reading through it. I've been crying almost the entire time, but I don't understand why. It's not you personally; the same thing has happened when I've viewed similar blogs. I feel so upset and hurt and this obscure dark, heavy feeling and I don't understand it. I don't even know why I'm sending you this, I guess I'm just hoping for answers.

I think if read even half of this stuff at your age I’d be crying too. It certainly still upsets me. You’re brave for looking into this now.

I don’t really have answers, but you’re not alone in navigating all of this, and certainly not alone in having a dark feeling. 

Also, I hope this doesn’t come off as condescending but I wish I could give you a hug. We’re all in this together.

"Murphy’s argument assumes porn is abusive, flagrantly exploitative and consistently violates actors’ boundaries behind the scenes. But that is not the case."

Comedian Jamie Kilstein thinks we shouldn’t joke about violence against women. That view got him notably shunned from the comedy community; other famous comedians weighed in, called him names, it was a whole thing. As a result, he lost a TV deal, promotional gigs, and friends — all because he said rape jokes are bad. [Rest.]
