FTMKickstart Topic 32: Trans Myths - T Makes You Sexist

"T does not make you a sexist douche—you probably already are one"

Miss Representation - the Documentary is now available to watch, in full, on youtube.

“…In a society where media is the most persuasive force shaping cultural norms, the collective message that our young women and men overwhelmingly receive is that a woman’s value and power lie in her youth, beauty, and sexuality, and not in her capacity as a leader. While women have made great strides in leadership over the past few decades, the United States is still 90th in the world for women in national legislatures, women hold only 3% of clout positions in mainstream media, and 65% of women and girls have disordered eating behaviors…”

This is fantastic, you should watch it of the day

I want to live in a world where little girls are not pinkified, but where little girls who like pink are not punished for it, either. We can certainly talk about the social pressures surrounding gender roles, and the concerns that people have when they see girls and young women who appear to be forced into performances of femininity by the society around them but let‘s stop acting like they have no agency and free will. Let‘s stop acting like women who choose to be feminine are somehow colluders, betraying the movement, bamboozled into thinking that they want to be feminine. Let‘s stop denying women their own autonomy by telling them that their expressions of femininity are bad and wrong

Demonizing femininity is just another way of saying masculinity is better, which is, surprise, sexist.

This article does an excellent job of encouraging women that don’t identify with feminism to stand up. +10

In the patrilinial society, men outperformed women on this task, taking 35 percent less time to complete it than the females. That difference vanishes when the test is given to the matrilinial tribe members; there was simply no significant difference between the sexes.
If a woman is highly competent, she is bound to be considered unpleasant.
Professor Stephanie Ridder (via queerdesi)

Anti-femme culture (and feminists aren’t immune to this) thinks the effort put into femme presentation is a waste of time and energy – or, at the very least, time and energy that could have been spent doing something more important. Anti-femme culture thinks “pretty” probably means “dumb” even when struggling against a culture obsessed with an impossibly narrow beauty standard. Anti-femme culture thinks you can’t do math AND do your nails.

We are humans! We contain multitudes! I do not think it is a problem that teenaged girls are interested in experimenting with presentation via fashion; I think it’s ridiculous and misogynist that they are ONLY encouraged to do that – and that boys don’t have the same freedom of expression.

The Rotund by Marianne Kirby (via rufflesnotdiets)
Some people tell me sexism doesn’t exist. Anyone who thinks that has clearly never been a well developed 16 year old trying to eat a lollypop in public.

every person who supports no abortions for rape victims should be forced to donate a kidney. they don’t need it to live, it’s a lot less of a risk and a lot less time, energy, and health lost than pregnancy, and it saves a life. who cares if it’s their body and they should be able to do what they want with it? right?

similarly, anyone who says a woman/girl who was raped and can’t carry the child to term without dying herself should be forced to carry it anyways: let’s declare all of their vital organs public property. i mean, a nine year old pregnant rape victim would only be sacrificing themselves for one child, so there’s no net gain. but if we killed anyone who holds this horrible opinion and take their organs, so many lives will be saved! it’s only fair. by their own logic.

I agree.
