Not being safe anywhere, always weighing the options with a fucking lump in your stomach. "Text me when you're home" rings in your ears on the bus - a melody you've heard since you started going out into the night with your mother's anxious look in your memory.
28-year-old teacher Sabina Nessa was murdered when she was on her way to meet her friend in a pub - a 5-minute walk. Another woman's life has been extinguished because of the patriarchal violence that terrorizes us wherever we are.
On our way to the pub.
On the subway.
At work.
Online.
At home.
And yes:
It's terrorism.

I'm starting to think some of you have some serious problems you need to address before ever getting involved in politics.
Seriously.
Get a fucking anti-stress ball or a punching bag. A pillow can do as well as a cheap alternative. But fucking stop finding "other" cathegories of women to spill sheer hatred on. At the end of the day, that "other" woman you hate has more in common with you than you like to admit.

i think what forever will be the weirdest thing for me is when men compare something mundane and innocent on a woman to something obscene on themselves instead of like... the same thing or something actually comparable
like for example how men compare womens pit-hair to their own ballhair instead of their own pit-hair
or comparing breast feeding to ejaculating instead of feeding a baby
or comparing a bra strap to THEIR WHOLE ASS COCK AND BALLS instead of the elastic of their own underwear
its so delusional and weird to me
get a grip

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.

every modern pop feminism idea can be explained by this one chimamanda meme though?
queer theory? sex work is work? bdsm and hardcore kink as feminist acts? twaw? the idea of makeup being empowering? bimbo feminism? girl brain and boy brain? choice feminism? men can be vulnerable babies let them cry uwu? rape didn't exist in indigenous cultures before colonial influence? fgm affects men too because a penis can be a female organ and fgm = circumcision?

I wish people would understand that I don't have a gender; I have a sex. I am not agender, or any of that other stuff, because I don't subscribe to the belief system that makes agender possible. I am not cisgendered because I hate the gender that comes with being a woman, and I would never choose to identity with that. The use of cis just makes victim blaming easier. It suggests that women who don't transition choose the gender stereotypes that come with being of the female sex. My clothes and personality are not some big statement. They are just me existing as a women who likes certain things. I hate hyperindividualism.

It's the little things. My sister is almost finished with her MD. At the hospital where she does her practicals, approximately 75% of the medical staff (doctors, nurses, nursing assistants, MD/nursing students) are women. They all wear the same colour unisex scrubs and those scrubs get delivered clean on Mondays.
By Wednesday, nearly every single changing room is out of size XS and size S scrubs.
The hospital administration orders the "standard" size distribution, which means they order a size distribution that fits average men. In spite of an overwhelming majority of the staff being women. So 4 days per week many women, whose authority is already challenged to a greater degree than men's, have to work in clothes where the sleeves and legs have to be rolled up multiple times and adjusted with pins to not be actually dangerous (remember, they're doing medicine here).
On top of the immediate danger from wearing too big clothes: Being taken seriously as an authority is already difficult when you're a woman. Now do it while looking like a little kid playing dress-up with your mom's clothes. And remember, if patients don't listen to you they could actually die.
And that's without getting in to the fact that so-called unisex clothing is just men's wear with a new label. Women with hips, boobs, narrower shoulders, will not find any size particularly suitable. It will either be too tight or a tent. And again, this is not a vanity concern. This is a patient safety concern. Medical staff should have access to clothes that neither restrict their movements nor are so baggy they risk getting in the way.
In spite of multiple petitions, the hospital admins persist in ordering clothing according to a generic human (aka a man) rather than their actual employees. Because women are invisible.

I peaked (and am still peaking) slowly over time but the two female Namibian sprinters who were disqualified from the Olympics today for having naturally high testosterone levels while apparently it is unscientific and unfair to mention the natural advantages trans women have in sports. HOLY FUCK. I am livid right now, so angry. Modern gender ideology hates women and the discrepancies are so so obvious. 
Radfems and gender critical fems please like this post so I can follow you. I’m new here thanks.

it’s so freeing to pretend like you have no idea what TRAS are talking about irl. It is literally SO simple (and kind of fun). Say female, say same-sex attracted, say homosexual. And if they say some stupid shit back?? Act like you don’t know what they’re talking about!!

Telling people they can't kink shame is just a way to protect abusive men. Why are we not allowed to question why rape, pedophilia, incest, etc are being normalized in sex? I'm sorry but if you are a whole ass adult man with a functioning brain who likes hitting women in bed or pretending your girlfriend is your daughter you're a weird freak who needs a mental evaluation. I'd rather be a "prude" who calls out violence against women than a pick-me who protects fragile male egos.

fucking hate posts that are like “equality isnt like pie, just because someone else gets rights doesnt mean you lose yours” because it DOES. i do want men to lose their right to abuse women and get away with it, to rape us and kill us and be defended tooth and nail, to exploit us. i do want them to lose what they have. i hate this softening of activism to pander to the oppressor class.

Everything is designed to accommodate the male body, sexism is deeply entrenched in every aspect of our lives.

Why is it that women who don't like the colour pink or don't wish to associate themselves with stereotypes prescribed to them as women, are described as having internalised misogyny, but biological females who have a hatred for their female body parts and wish to remove them aren't?

I was at a swimming carnival the other day for my school and a lot of girls were wearing bikinis which had very revealing cuts. Now, before I begin, if you think that this post is going to shame these girls for wearing these bikinis, you are wrong. Me criticising a structural issue does not equate to thinking that the girls that wear them should be shamed.
I started talking to another teacher about the bikini bottoms and how revealing they were and the topic moved onto more feminist ideas. And I argued that they were a form of oppression because they were so revealing. As the conversation continued my colleague asked "what if the girls are confident in what they are wearing?" I always get a little thrown when I am asked this. I responded with "who benefits and who designed these bikinis." She conceded the point.
But I keep coming back to it in my mind "what if these girls feel confident?" And you know what, who cares. Who cares if these girls feel confident in these revealing bikinis? Oppression isn't individual, it's collective. I feel like the argument always comes back to this. Women's confidence. Not all the girls who were wearing these bikinis were confident. I saw several of them swap shirts with boys or wear a towel around their waist to hide them. I also saw several girls having to adjust them because they kept getting wedgies.
"What if she feels confident?" Women and girls feeling confident in their bikinis is great and all but it doesn't stop them from being a form of objectification. It doesn't stop making their bodies more available for men to view. It doesn't erase the fact that many girls feel pressured into wearing these bikinis because that is what is advertised to them. Sometimes these bikinis are the only ones available, so girls and women just have to settle for them.
Know what the boys were wearing? Boardshorts down to the knees. That was the main type of swimmers they boys wore at the carnival. The second type were the swim bottoms. But these are not comparable because the two pairs I saw both covered the boys' butts. It was interesting because the teacher asked me why wearing budgie smugglers was seen as less acceptable than what the girls were wearing. At the time I didn't have an answer but now I do. It's less acceptable because we are so desensitised to the objectification of women and girls bodies. We are constantly bombarded with images of women's naked or half naked forms. We are used to it by now. Men simply don't get the same treatment therefore when they do wear budgie smugglers it's something to gawk at or make a statement of.
Women and girls' confidence doesn't negate oppression. Oppression and misogyny doesn't happen on an individual scale, it's something that women as a class experience. Some women would have been content with not having the vote. Didn't stop it from being a systemic way to prevent women from participating in politics and how countries are run. Some women would have been confident being housewives. But, that didn't negate the fact that they were deterred from higher education and the workforce to do their so called duty to their husband and children. Something which is still going on to this day. As sad as this is, some women feel confident that thier husband's and boyfriends love them. This doesn't negate the fact that 1 in 6 Australian women will experience Domestic Violence. That 2 out of 5 female murder victims were killed by thier intimate partner. Some women feel confident in revealing clothes. This confidence doesn't stop them from simultaneously being objectified by men and also being shamed for being a slut or whore. Feeling confident while wearing makeup doesn't erase the fact that a woman is more likely to get a job if she is wearing makeup.
Confidence is not as good a clap back as people seem to think.

Today you are "terf".
Five years ago you were a "feminazi".
Twenty years ago you were "crazy."
At the beginning of the century you were a "hysterical".
And just a few decades ago a little more ago you would have been singled out as a "witch."
Times change, hatred towards women is eternal.
