Denying that women are a victimized class is simply wrong. What else would you call a segment of the population who are systematically discriminated against in school, work and politics? How would you describe a population whose bodies are objectified to the point of dehumanization? Women are harassed, attacked and sexually assaulted with alarming regularity in America and around the world, and now even more of them live in states where, if pregnant, they can be refused medical attention or arrested for refusing C-sections.
People who are on the shit end of oppression are oppressed. Accurately describing this is not a matter of politics, but of truth.
i hate that “LOL SO IF WOMEN ARE EQUAL CAN I PUNCH YOU” shit bc 1 in 3 women are abused
y’all are already punching us
the issue is that we’d like you to stop
I hate how the ‘shitty mum’ trope in tv/film often revolves around a working mother who doesn’t have time to bake cakes for her kids’ school cake days from scratch like it’s so tired and gross.
That is a very patriarchal, misogynistic trope “harmlessly” slipped into quite a lot of movies and other forms or “story telling” and it’s only one way that society enculturates it’s norms
The name of this particular trope is “bad mom who won’t stay at home”
jill filipovic is KILLING IT
when five old men - on the us supreme court - agree that vasectomies and viagra are “religiously” protected medicines that are okay, but birth control is not
I love tumblr because this is virtual proof of how terrified the privileged are of losing their power.
Here, minorities actually have a voice, and in the distance there are muffled cries of cisphobia, misandry, heterophobia, and reverse racism. The priveleged -outside the inconsequential realm of this website - whine because the joke’s on them. They cry because they don’t like being viewed as a single entitiy and “It’s not their fault!”. They retaliate at us for retaliating. “But what about equality?”, they say. They whisper about how feel they’re walking on thin ice, and if they make one wrong move they’ll be attacked.
