making fun of girls for having “daddy issues” is literally the most illogically cruel thing i can think of haha “hey you! your dad sucked! i bet that really impacted your life and the way you form relationships with other people lmfao fuckin loser”
girls who pretend to act stupid because they think it’s cute need to be slapped in the face with a brick
girls who pretend to act stupid because they think it’s cute need to be taught that their thoughts and opinions matter. so many girls are taught that being smart and capable is threatening to boys and will scare them away. please don’t hit these girls with bricks thanks
“I haven’t needed to “learn” to be a woman. My lived experiences are those of someone who was already in the girl/woman box, and that was always somewhat visible to others. Not in a way that they would recognise that box in respectful and accurate ways, but they did recognise that box in the way they teased me, harassed me, physically hurt me, try to “fix” me or “understand” me. I have no idea what it’s like to grow up as a boy, because I didn’t. I grew up as something visually and legally “boy-like” who deserved to be treated horribly for being “girl-like.””—
This. This is similar to my growing up in most respects and that is why the blanket statement that trans women have male privilege is so offensive. While I was not seen as a girl, I was seen as something girl-like; as a result I was not treated like a boy. Instead I was treated like something broken and consistently had my female-ness ridiculed, lessened, and othered. I was beaten, raped, and abused (physically, verbally, and emotionally) because I expressed my girlhood. These are not male socialised experiences. Trans women have female experience and socialisation because their female nature is an essential part of their identity and effects how others treat them.
Also I don’t see enough white feminists giving credit to Nicki Minaj beyond the interview of her doing her eyeliner. Did you guys forget that she recognized and IDed as cisgender, and recognized that vagina does not equal womanhood, when she called herself a “woman with vagina.” And that asshole talk show host laughed and said “as opposed to a women without one?” and she gave him a the meanest look and said “yes.” We need to gif that.
“But let’s get something straight: a community pushing back against a murderous police force that is terrorizing them is not a “riot”. It’s an uprising. It’s a rebellion. It’s a community saying We can’t take this anymore. We won’t take it. It’s people who have been dehumanized to the point of rightful rage. And it happens all over the world. Uprisings and rebellions are necessary and inevitable, locally and globally. This is not to say that actual riots don’t happen. White folks riot at sporting events, for example. Riots happen. But people rising up in righteous anger and rage in the face of oppression should not be dismissed as simply a “riot”.
I am so unbelievably happy that something I’ve made has 150+ notes (I know that’s not a lot on here but it is for me!). I am remaking it for the bake off this Sunday and the local baker is coming to judge everyones bakes and I am literally so excited I really want to win. And no it is not sad that this pie is the best thing in my life right now. Nope.
