It's kinda sad that we're expected to say ''women and trans women''. Like i should be able to say women without someone adding ''op forgot trans women'' like no. Trans women are included in the word women. Same goes for trans men.

It's not your fault that you were brought up with parents who were racist, homophobic, misogynistic, or ableist, but it is your fault if you aren't willing to work at fighting these beliefs.
I know that it's hard - believe me, I'm still working through a lot myself - but the first step is to try, and to ask questions if you need help! You can do this!

just another reminder that in this country, if you have a uterus you are seen as nothing more then an incubator.

I wonder what kind of girl I would be if the patriarchy didn’t exist. If gender roles and stereotypes didn’t stain my entire being. If I didn’t suffer at the hands of misogyny that molded the clay that was me. I wonder what I would do, what I would say, what I would like, what I would crave, what I would be. The likelihood of us being anything close to similar seems slim considering how many things could be different. I just wonder what type of woman I would be if I hadn’t been told from the day I was born how and who I should become. Would I still enjoy wearing makeup if I hadn’t been conditioned to feel better about myself with it on? Would my favorite color still be orange if pink hadn’t been forced on me and I didn’t care to make a point of rejecting it? Would I stand up for myself more if I hadn’t been taught to cater to the comfort of others before prioritizing my own? Would my natural instinct still be to feel wary of those around me if abuse and harassment and assault were not normalized in our society? Would I still want long hair if I hadn't been brainwashed into believing that my beauty is rooted in being feminine, and that my value is rooted in being beautiful? Would I be the same? How much, or how little, would that impossible girl resemble me as I am now? And are my interests and passions genuine—truly mine—or can they all be linked to some expectation to accommodate, some predetermined role to serve, some juxtaposing desire to please a system I don’t even like. Do I actually love video games as much as I think I do, or do I only like them because I think it makes me appear cooler to men? Do I actually want to get married as much as I think I do, or do I only want to because historically that was where the female fit in? Do I actually find solace in journaling as much as I think I do, or do I only find solace in it because it is the only time I can share my traumatic experiences without being called a crazy attention seeker? There is so much I wonder about, which parts of me are real and which have been tinkered with. Which is just pure me, and which is because of something else. A factor of the patriarch. Of course I’ll never know, but that truth does not keep me from being curious about the girl who does not suffer from the wrath of an internalized male gaze and the burden of internalized misogyny. I bet she is lovely—free of the shackles—and I hope she feels at peace.

this pride month, please please please do not let the black lives matter movement go ignored. the lgbtq movement owes so much to black members of our community. we are not free until all of us are.
what is happening now is change in action. if you care about activism, and you should, you know that blm deserves to be seen, their voices to be heard.
pride matters, and we should still celebrate, still fight, still demand our place in the world. but black and indigenous people need our support right now. cops are not our friends. oppression is never okay. privilege is never comfortable. if you are white or non-black, refuse to let support for blm die down.
this pride, let’s fight for each other. demand spaces for lgbtq people of colour. let their voices be heard. listen.
you can help.

i just love rainy mornings with nothing to do. wrapping a blanket around you tighter, maybe making a nice cuppa tea. reading a book or just scrolling through your phone. looking out the window and seeing the rain. just rain my beloved.

Some of you are out here bragging about how your countries education system failed you. I swear to what ever GOD if I see one more next generation Karen out here saying stuff like "SeX ChRoMEsOMes ArE ThE OnLy Thİng tHat DeTerMine sEX" I will not rest until advance biology is a mandatory highschool subject in every western english speaking country. By this freaking logic we as humans would have like 8 sexs you freaking troglodytes.
Like science doesn't need to be your strong suit but for the love of god when the rest of the world say's "Hey it's a bit more complicated than that" don't come out here swinging about gosh darn POLİTİCS especially if your arguing against the scientific community.
Sex too is not binary:
(This is the easiest one to understand)
Biological changes accure in trans man, woman and nonbinary people on hormons.
(Btw if anyone wants to learn more on biological sex that really is fine and I encourage asking questions or sending more info my way. But I will straight up delete idiological and political posts. Intersexphobia and or transphobia will not be tolerated!)

Hey so I’m hyped that Trump’s gone and all but let’s just remember that things don’t magically get better from here on out - we have to keep working for them.
Keep supporting blm.
Keep protecting trans kids.
Keep welcoming immigrants.
Keep defending marriage equality.
Keep believing women.
Keep working to make our society more fair, just, and accepting of all.

I felt the need to share the comments under this playlist:
Female/AFAB socialization is sick
Anyone who can deny the evil effects of patriarchy on women and afabs after reading this is lost

From Mexico to the World
Obrador's government is a rapist. Please don't let this go to a hole, help me making it viral, or something, someone out there has to see this, please.
Every day, 11 women are murdered in Mexico
The president approved a rapist as candidate for governor of the state of Guerrero.
The president raised a wall in front of the national palace, making of this a direct aggression towards women.
This government hates women and we cannot remain silent!!

something that really sucks about speaking out against sexism and sharing my own personal experiences with it, is that terfs are drawn to it and try to use it as ammunition for their misandry and anti-trans cause. like i don't even feel comfortable posting about misogyny on here despite it being something very prevalent today and in need of discussion, because I'm afraid of giving terfs a platform to spread their transphobic hate speech and making my blog an unsafe place for trans people, which is the opposite of my blog's purpose. it also worries me that people see "sexism" and immediately think "terf," because they have invaded and taken over every conversation about women's equality. I want to talk about my experiences without them being used to invalidate others'. my oppression shouldn't be weaponized, or used to justify the oppression of others.
i just wish i could discuss sexism and feminism without it becoming a basis for others to spread anti-trans rhetoric.

Quick test : if you can't go out in public in zero makeup without feeling self-conscious, then your makeup is not a choice.
