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.

Feminism makes women ‘victims’? I think you’ve mistaken us for the sexists, my latest at the Guardian (responding to #WomenAgainstFeminism)

Isn’t amazing how people don’t give a shit about misogyny until they can accuse muslims of it in order to justify their islamaphobia?

Or rap to demonize black men.

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”

THIS

WHERE IS THIS FROM ?

It’s from “la source des femmes”

IT’S TRUE.

THERE IS NOTHING IN THE QU’RAN THAT SAYS WOMEN’S SOLE PURPOSE IS FOR OBEYING AND PROCREATING.

We are allowed to inherit and own property and businesses, and we are allowed to CHOOSE our husbands instead of having them foisted upon us in arranged marriages. WE ARE ALSO ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN COMBAT.

I’ve read the Qu’ran COVER TO COVER and there’s nothing God says about women being LESS than men. In fact, God IMPLORES men to treat women as equals. Probably because God knew men have a tendency to foul things up and has to remind them that WOMEN ARE ALSO PRECIOUS CREATIONS OF HIS DIVINE WILL.

-huffs and puffs-

Sorry. I was in my feelings. But this touches my nerves a lot when people misinterpret Islam as some misogynistic religion. Nothing could be further from the truth.

In a study published by Archives of Sexual Behavior, scientists from Brunel University in London found that people who tend to oppose female promiscuity on moral grounds also tend to believe that women are financially dependant on men, even when researchers controlled for political and religious ideology.

The researchers, whose aim was to provide a glimpse at the “evolutionary logic of anti-promiscuity morality,” found that “such opposition will more likely emerge in environments in which women are more dependent economically on a male mate.” They came to this conclusion by noticing how women with lower incomes and men with higher salaries tended to have a stronger opposition to people with the sexual habits of independent women.

Demanding that women close our legs and calling us whores for planning our pregnancies confirms the feminist suspicion that opposition to contraception and abortion is less about “life” than it is about a sense that sexually active women are doing something wrong and should be chastened for it.

We officially live in a country where corporations have more rights than women.

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.
