Do you see feminism as hating men and women ruling the world or simply as equal rights and respect. (The second is what I believe it to be)

People who see feminism as centered around hating men, and women ruling the world would be incorrect. They’ve either been misinformed as to what feminism is, or they might be a man who is scared about the idea of women having the institutionalized power to treat them the way they’ve always treated women.

So I guess of the two options, I’d have to say it’s more about equal rights and respect, however, I see it as more than that. Feminism is about our liberation. You can technically have equal rights and still see oppressions and injustices run rampant. Something written on paper does not make it an actualized reality. It’s easy to say you have respect for someone, but little micro-aggressions in everyday life will show you that it doesn’t truly exist. Liberation is how you get past that.

Just so We’re Clear

  • If you identify as a woman, that in no ways means you need to agree with all women on everything
  • If you identify as a woman and you disagree with another woman, that in no way gives you the right to disrespect her with names such as bitch, cunt, whore, slut, etc.
  • If you identify as a woman and you do these things, you are no friend to women, no friend to feminism.

See actually being a human grants you the right to say whatever you want to whoever you want for whatever reason you want

^^^^ Who ordered stale dick? It sure as hell wasn’t me.

I don’t understand why Beyonce would want to repeatedly collaborate with known sexual predator, Terry Richardson.

I don’t understand why Beyonce would want to be a part of the 50 Shades franchise, by having her song be the sexy through-line that ties together the hyped trailer.

It’s not like she needs the money, or those things to elevate her up to the next tier (if anything, they bring her down), so it’s not even a patriarchal bargain situation. I don’t get it.

A lot of times, recording artists don’t even own the rights to their own music, so they have just as much control over what song is used in a movie trailer as you and I do. I’m not saying that this is the case, but even successful artists like Beyonce might not have control over their own songs. 

I understand that, but from what I read, it seems they recorded this version recently, and just for the movie…

So apparently “non-bald pussy” is on the same level of kink as “choking/gagging women with cock”.

I'm so sorry to see the way people ignore your requests. You deserve all the kindness in the world for all of the good you do <3 kudos to your courage in the face of adversity

Thank you. xx I really just don’t get it… All it does it make me want to stay far away from here. And I think that’s what I’m going to do now. <3

PLEASE STOP SENDING ME BDSM-RELATED ASKS. THAT WAS LITERALLY THE FIRST THING I SAID BEFORE ANY OF THIS STARTED. WHY DO FOLKS CHOOSE TO COMPLETELY DISREGARD MY WISHES?

AND ANOTHER THING THAT I SAID, BUT WAS APPARENTLY IGNORED: EVERYTHING I POSTED SPECIFICALLY REFERRED MALE DOMS/MEN THAT GET OFF ON ABUSING WOMEN. I SPECIFICALLY SAID I WAS NOT CRITIQUING ANY CHOICES BY ANY WOMEN. YOU DON’T NEED TO PROVE OR JUSTIFY ANYTHING TO ME. IT’S NOT SOMETHING I WANT TO HEAR.

(Sorry for the all caps to people not pulling this shit, but I got so many asks that were all unwelcome. and some even acknowledged that I didn’t want those asks, but then dove in anyway. I said I didn’t want it, and I meant it. Thank you to the people who respected that.)
