I wish I could be surprised that certain radfems are openly mocking Celestia’s disability and claiming that she’s “faking” it, but at this point I’m really not. If you approve of or partake in the mocking and belittling of Celestia’s disability by referring to it as an “invisible disability” (clearly indicating that you think it’s somehow less important or even non-existent) then you are 100% fucking trash. No exceptions.

lesbipocalypse:

"Feminist" BDSM/kink women seem to talk about how empowered they are. But I don’t see the same consistency with the men. All I see is "women deserve to be humiliated and beaten". There’s no mention of the so called respect at all

“By placing porn use within a cultural context, we can begin to see how powerful it really is. As boys grow up to be men, they are inundated with messages from the media, messages that both objectify women’s bodies and depict women as sex objects who exist for male pleasure. These images are part and parcel of the visual landscape and hence are unavoidable. They come at boys and men from video games, movies, television, ads, and men’s magazines, and they supply them with a narrative about women, men, and sexuality. What porn does is to take these cultural messages about women and present them in a succinct way that leaves little room for multiple interpretations. While there are some media images that can be read in a number of ways (called polysemic in media studies) by different people, gonzo porn, particularly-with its overt contempt for women and incessant story line of how women like to be humiliated and debased-delivers a clear message to men, who have already developed a somewhat pornographic gaze by virtue of being brought up in a society filled with sexist pop culture images.”

Seriously, though ; I’ve had it with fun feminism. And I don’t fucking want to get involved in such tedious things anymore.

I don’t want to talk about how empowering make-up is and how this line of cosmetics made a “feminist collection!!!” (protip : they don’t fucking care about women’s rights, they just make money on feminism)

I don’t want to talk about how empowering heels are in a world where women surgically remove their pinky toes to fit into stilettos

Please go on and explain how cool porn and BDSM are, when they involve the actual rape and abuse of women, without forgetting racism

Reblogging porn gifs and TERFs lists won’t smash the patriarchy, it never worked and it never will, and I highly doubt women had the right to vote because of “nice activism” and cute kawai glittery pics

WHEN PEOPLE SAY YOU HAVE PRIVILEGE THEY ARE NOT SAYING THAT YOU DON’T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS

THEY ARE SAYING YOU DO NOT HAVE THE SPECIFIC PROBLEMS THAT COME FROM OPPRESSION

THIS IS NOT A DIFFICULT CONCEPT

evilfeminist:

A radical feminist construct of feminism roots women’s oppression in reproductive biology and sex-gender systems. According to radical feminists, patriarchy (the systematic oppression of women by men) subordinates women in sex-specific ways by defining women as beings whose primary functions are either to bear and raise children or to satisfy male sexual desires. The liberation of women requires the dismantling of patriarchy, particularly male control of women’s bodies.

“Men are always willing to believe two things about a woman: one, that she is weak, and two, that she finds him attractive.”
