#feminist #feminism #women

I’m always amused when women, especially white, cis, straight women, take on this “well, I don’t see how Feminism benefits ME, so fuck it!” mentality. 

Because, like, ok, perhaps you have enough privileges that the impact of systematic gender inequality is pretty mitigated for you. Sure. 

But, like, do you not give a shit about your sisters? About your sisters of color, and LGBTQIAP+ sisters, and disabled sisters? About your sisters who ARE targets of violence, who are suffering? 

Because lists like this only betray 2 things, a) That the person who wrote it does not understand the sociological concepts and theories that lay the foundation for much of feminist theory and b) that they don’t give a shit about anyone less fortunate than themselves in regards to marginalization and oppression. 

OP is on some ignorant shit.

how to completely misunderstand and misrepresent feminism, while showing arrogance, ignorance, and complete disdain for those who are suffering: a photo post by someone with no concept of oppression

Also, if you think the patriarchy doesn’t affect you, and that you aren’t a target for violence, be it general or sexual, you might want to sit down, because I have some seriously bad news for you

"I am tired, not of arguing in favour of equality, diversity and tolerance, but of having to explain, over and over and over again, why such arguments are still necessary, only to have my evidence casually dismissed by someone too oblivious to realise that their dismissal of the problem is itself a textbook example of the f**king problem. I am tired of being mocked by hypocrites who think that a single lazy counterexample is sufficient to debunk the fifteen detailed examples they demanded I produce before they’d even accept my point as a hypothetical, let alone valid, argument. I am tired of a**holes who think that playing devil’s advocate about an issue alien to their experience but of deep personal significance to their interlocutor makes them both intellectually superior and more rationally objective on the specious basis that being dispassionate is the same as being right (because if they can stay calm while savagely kicking your open wound, then clearly, you have no excuse for screaming)."

I’m annoyed at the romanticizing of not having technology. iPhones are ruining “getting lost”. What the fuck does that mean? Who wants to get lost? being lost is terrifying.

why isn't it a problem when m.i.a raps? why is it ok to have chicano rap/asian rap/ etc? But as soon as white people try it you all lose your shit?

That’s so cute and simplistic. Did you work on this question all week or…? No one cares when white people try to rap. We care when they don’t represent their authentic selves or are plain untalented. We don’t care that Eminem is white. He’s not out her performing sonic blackface, despite being from the Detroit Metro Area. Yelawolf sounds like a southern rapper because… he’s a southern rapper. Homeboy is from Alabama. His voice is his. Hell, we didn’t even care about Bubba Sparxxx. Homeboy is from Georgia. Plus, Ms. New Booty is still a bop, so.. *shrugs*

Iggy literally sounds like something out of Malibu’s Most Wanted. Protip: that movie was not a documentary. This sheila is claiming she’s in the “murda bidness”. Homegirl grew up in Mulllumbimby, New South Wales, on a fucking farm. What the fuck was she murdering? Chickens? The hopes and dreams of her parents? What? You tell me. But she is flagrantly being dishonest and unauthentic. She sounds like all the mediocre parts of some of the premiere lady rappers throughout the years. She ain’t as cool in her delivery as Da Brat. She ain’t as raw and bold as Foxy or Trina. She ain’t as cute or skilled as Charli Baltimore. Iggy is what happens when generally mediocre white girls think they deserve to win and people who don’t know better let them.

Canadian music festival takes huge step against Native appropriation

Follow micdotcom 

From their announcement:

For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.

We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.

Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.

Beyoncé Makes Susan B. Anthony Look Like A Shit-Sucking Gutter Feminist

From our sister publication, ClickHole

The ironic thing about this article is that it’s satire that’s supposed to be making fun of Beyonce’s feminism by comparing her to a “great” feminist like S.B. Anthony, when actually, Beyonce /is/ a better feminist than S.B. Anthony. Like S.B. Anthony was a fucking racist puta who only care about white femininity and stepped on black men and women in order to achive ~suffrage~ like… lmao ??  Susan B. Anthony /IS/ A Shit-Sucking Gutter Feminist
