I have a huge problem with “my feminism will be x or it will be bullshit”.

Because people are complicated. And being wrong about something important doesn’t mean someone is wrong about everything.

The birth control movement was originally openly and unapologetically eugenicist.

That doesn’t mean it was worthless unimportant bullshit. Access to contraception is still important and they still did important work.

scifi-reality:

"Women have to protect other women"
"Women have to protect other women"
"Women have to protect other women"
"Women have to protect other women"
"Women have to protect other women"
"Women have to protect other women"
"Women have to protect other women"
"Women have to protect other women"
"Women have to protect other women"

And that means white women protecting WOC.
Cis women protecting trans women.
Straight women protecting queer women.
Abled women protecting disabled women.
Not just white cishet abled women protecting other white cishet abled women.

radical feminists are feminists

roseanne barr is a feminist. so is the bug.

caitlin moran is a feminist.

so are all those nice white ladies who run
feministing/jezebel/feministe/etc

all of them feminists

that feminism does not contradict (or even often resist)

white supremacy, anti-Blackness, transmisogyny, ableism, the disappearing
Indigenous person, anti-immigration, and so many other oppressive
ideologies

is exactly what makes it feminism.

for every intersectional feminist, there are a dozen ableist feminists

for every Black feminist, there are a dozen white supremacist feminists

etc

and

so on

unless you mean to imply that feminism is a pure and unsullied as the
white women it benefits the most…

A lot of lesbian and dyke spaces and a lot of feminist spaces are masculine-centric, [which] plays a big role about which trans people are welcome in the space and which are not. I’ve found that trans men and trans masculine people are way more welcome in queer spaces than trans women…. [A] large portion of the anti-trans sentiments are anti-feminine.

ATTENTION TUMBLR FEMINISTS!

maraschino-virgin:

I have a quick little experiment. If you believe that trans* women and cis women are both women (you can have any genitals and still be a woman), then please reblog! 

If you disagree, please reblog this one here.

I feel complicated calling myself a feminist, but yeah, I’m in.

Not all of us can say, with any degree of certainty, that we have always been human, or that we are only that.

I fucking met her in real life, y’all! The lecture she gave was not so impressive or groundbreaking though :/

Watercolor Collection: Women Defined. PART I. 

Ladies are awesome, don’t you agree? 

I wanted to make a simple collection of beautiful women in watercolor, so I did just that. Decided to add the accompanying text to give it a voice. My intent was not to abolish every stereotype, but to simply illustrate women of varying personalities, body types, ages, and ethnicities. Every woman is beautiful!

I will be selling this collection as a zine soon, but I had so much fun with it that I wanted to make it available digitally as well. Enjoy! 

GO TO PART II!

never apologise for wanting attention.

if anyone ever tries to shame you or call you an attention seeker for posting photos of yourself on the internet, or talking about your achievements, or discussing mental health issues, or wearing tight/revealing clothing, etc etc, they’re an asshole.

attention feels good and you’re worthy of it.

FUCK.YES.
