@worms.forbrains(any pronouns): well I don’t have a pole, but I have a skateboard 😈
Short Description: [[MORE]]
Tiktok creator worms.forbrains skating and singing along to the song “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” by Lil Nas X. For each line, there are seamless transitions that include outfit changes that range from feminine to masculine and everything in between.
a woman shivers and man grins in the face of danger
men write erotica and women write porn
I’m sick of women’s reading lists being called “guilty pleasures” and “fun trash” when almost every year my high school English class only had one female author, because if they try to add Pride and Prejudice the boys simply wouldn’t even try to pick it up, God forbid Toni Morrison
and everything I say is shrill and cruel and wouldn’t you rather be born a banshee than a girl because at least when you break their eardrums they won’t call it pandering
Double standards for who is allowed to exist as the gender they identify as.
Gender non-conformity and refusal to cut yourself down to patriarchal size is going to get you harassed or worse whether you’re cis or trans,but that isn’t the point of this post. it is about the fact that cis people are at least allowed to be who they say they are - though a ‘perverted, degenerate’ version of it, and we are only afforded the ‘perverted, degenerate’ labels and not the ones we choose for ourselves.
western sexism is when your father tells you to "put some clothes on" when you wear jeans, a leather jacket and a crop top, but says nothing when your brother has no shirt on
western sexism is a man on the street telling me what he would do to my 12 year old body if I came home with him, walking down the street to be called "sexy" by men I don't know, to have inappropriate comments made on my body when I'm just trying to walk to school: but have all of this harrasment stop when a male walks beside me
western sexism is telling an eight year old girl to tolerate a boy's harassment because "he's just doing it 'cause he likes you".
western sexism is when a girl is always "asking for it", and a boy always "wants it"
western sexism is still sexism. We understand that eastern women have it worse: and we are fighting for them too.
but when a person break their finger, you don't say "well, some people have broken their arm" and walk away. If you use eastern sexism to dismiss western sexism: you are a problem.
sexism is sexism.
feminism is needed everywhere
Edit: there are some people who are confused by the first and second part. I want to make it clear that I'm not twelve, I'm seventeen. The paragraph about the crop top is based on present day, and the paragraph about being catcalled when I was twelve is based on when I was twelve, although it still goes in today.
