god i call myself a radical feminist because i do support and think that a radical reordering of society in order to get rid of the oppression of women in any class or race is necessary but i had no idea some cunts who call themselves rad fems are also fucking terfs i hope y’all rot in hell for ruining feminism
you know what i think we should be talking about more... sex ed in schools. i was talking to my friend the other day about radfem stuff, and i don't remember what led him to say it, but he said to me: "you know what pisses me off? the sex ed i got." we went to the same high school so i know what he means. they taught us everything about males down to how they orgasm, the basic parts of the female reproductive system, and that if you have you will die of every STD or whatever. and then they showed us a video of live birth to promote abstinence (by method of deterring sex, i think). that's it.
i kind of think we should like, talk about it more and start pushing for better sex ed, because this aforementioned friend barely knows anything about my (or any other female's) genitalia. several of my exes, and even friends, didn't know about them either until i told them about it.
like, maybe it's not much, but if we teach about the female reproductive system and female reproductive healthcare like we talk about it for men, it will make some kind of difference. I ALSO THINK SEX ED SHOULD INCLUDE THE DANGERS OF CONSUMING PORN AND ENGAGING IN "KINK" AND MAYBE HOW TO SPOT PREDATORS AND WHY PROSTITUTION IS HARMFUL. i think EVERYTHING about sex should be covered.
idk where i was going with this i kind of just wanted to get the ball rolling and hear stuff from you guys, my beloveds <3
can we please talk about the new season of sex education
i havent finished it yet but i just watched the scene where cal asks hope if she goes into the boy or girl line, and hope says the girl line, because they’re discussing female anatomy. cal has female anatomy. obviously that’s something she needs to know, since you need to know why things happen down there and how to tell if you’re healthy. how are you supposed to know the signs of an std or if something is wrong with your period?
that whole scene made me so mad. why would she go into the boys line and learn about something that doesn’t apply to her? why is this painted as a bad thing?
while i disagree with them dividing the kids up because i think guys should learn about female reproductive health too since none of them know about it, if they are going to divide them, its important for you to learn what is best for you.
i hope im putting this into words correctly. sex ed for girls is bad enough as is, and theres a lot of girls who dont know what they should about sexual health. this scene is making it worse.
How is it so widely ignored that serial killers are disproportionally often men who mainly or only target women and usually sexually abuse the women before murdering them? Why isn’t it specified as serial femicides or hate crimes? This is so often overlooked and rarely specified in reports and it goes to show once again that misogyny is barely recognised at all. It’s not always just crazy, evil people with blood lust who commit crimes against people. It’s men who hate women.
how is this under any context funny or acceptable? this is so out of line. she didn’t even necessarily express an insecurity or desire for a boob job, he just felt the need to assume that. and the fact that videos like these draw girls who have insecurities about their chest size to them, just for the top comment to be from a plastic surgeon promoting breast augmentation. the fact that plastic surgeons have massive platforms like these all over social media and are endlessly promoted by women to young girls is sickening and borderline dystopian. fuck this.
i hope every pro-porn libfem sees this. the biggest porn star in the world openly talks about how how her contract was exploitative, and the same men who get off to her victim-blame her. porn is NEVER empowering for women.
i love when women are comfortable fuckin loose clothes, sweatpants and hoodie, leg hair, armpit hair, lil mustache, legs spread, big belly laughing, no bra, no makeup, taking up space uuuuuuuugh i love that shit
I heard an atheist sum this up pretty well a while ago.
If your religion were ACTUALLY peaceful, than your religious extremists would be 𝘦𝘹𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘮𝘦𝘭𝘺 𝘱𝘦𝘢𝘤𝘦𝘧𝘶𝘭. That is to say, the more 𝘦𝘹𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘮𝘦 they are 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘮𝘰𝘳𝘦 𝘱𝘦𝘢𝘤𝘦𝘧𝘶𝘭 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘺 𝘢𝘳𝘦.
If your religious 𝘦𝘹𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘮𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘴 are men mass raping, beating, slaughtering, oppressing, and enslaving women 𝘢𝘴 𝘵𝘢𝘶𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘮 𝘣𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘪𝘳 𝘩𝘰𝘭𝘺 𝘣𝘰𝘰𝘬,
𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘯 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘳𝘦𝘭𝘪𝘨𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘪𝘴 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘱𝘦𝘢𝘤𝘦𝘧𝘶𝘭
The fact of the matter is that these 𝘦𝘹𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘮𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘴 are the ones 𝘧𝘰𝘭𝘭𝘰𝘸𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘪𝘳 𝘳𝘦𝘭𝘪𝘨𝘪𝘰𝘶𝘴 𝘵𝘦𝘢𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘴 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘣𝘰𝘰𝘬 𝘢𝘴 𝘢𝘤𝘤𝘶𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘭𝘺 𝘢𝘴 𝘪𝘴 𝘱𝘰𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘣𝘭𝘦.
The Quoran teaches ALL of the things that the extremists and Taliban believe. That women are inferior. That men are superior. It instructs men on when and how to beat and rape and oppress women and every other imaginable barabaric misogyny you can think of. The Taliban and other Islamic extremists are the true face of Islam because they don't cherry-pick the religion, they just carry out exactly as instructed.
You can yell "misinterpretation!" all you want, but a truly ominoptent, all-powerful and all-seeing God would be able to communicate messages in a way that 𝘩𝘶𝘮𝘢𝘯 𝘣𝘦𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘴 𝘸𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘣𝘦 𝘢𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘮𝘪𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘱𝘳𝘦𝘵. So either your God is NOT all-powerful, all-knowing, or all-seeing OR the passages of your God instructing you how to beat, rape, and oppress women are all true.
Islam is shit. Christianity is shit. Your God and religions are all shit.
We need to get rid of the narrative that pedophiles, perverts, rapists, and creeps are all ugly, greasy, middle-aged men who live in their mother's basement. This stereotype is used as an excuse for people to ignore creepy behavior and actions of men because they don't fit into this box. Pedophiles can be fathers and sons. Creepy men can be well dressed and attractive. Perverts can be teachers and mentors. Rapists can be very successful men.
It is genuinely mind-boggling how many radical feminists defend religion when not a single religious text is actually compatible with feminism. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all consider women to be inferior to men and instruct them to submit to men, according to their holy books. Worshipping and believing in the Abrahamic god is completely antithetical to the foundation of radical feminism.
I was watching an interview of a LGB rights activist elder Miriam Ben Shalom, and she was asked about her thoughts on detranstioned lesbian women and she said a really beautiful statement;
"Universally I say to them welcome home sister, we were waiting for you. Glad it didn't take any longer"
Even though I'm not a lesbian, I just feel very grateful for the elder lesbians like Miriam who are standing for us LGB women and are standing for the lesbians who have been harmed by gender ideology. It really warmed my heart the love and compassion our LGB elders have for us.
