literally so insane how “being a bad person is not an excuse to be transphobic against them” but the moment a woman does something they dont like they’re sending her rape threats & porn gifs & calling her a c/nt. because somehow the same logic doesn’t apply to misogyny.
I think tiger king perfectly encapsulates how society treats shitty men as opposed to shitty women because there were guys on there who straight up ran a sex cult and confessed to really horrific shit, but everyone fixated on Carol who was just accused of killing her husband by a complete crazy.
i just saw someone define gay as “men and male aligned people who are exclusively attracted to men and male aligned people”.
what does “male-aligned” mean? having short hair? watching football? having facial hair? having multiple wives? not having manners? liking blue? wearing pants and sweatshirts? going by he/him? being a gamer? beating and raping women? what is it?
things that are aligned with males vary across cultures and times. homosexuality exists regardless of the culture and time. male homosexuality doesn’t include male-aligned people. it is just about males. same thing with lesbians and “female-aligned people”.
i’ve realized that the people who define lesbianism as “non-man loving non-man” are perfectly fine with defining gay as “man loving man” …. whenever it comes to acknowledging women they immediately go to “non-men” instead of just saying “women” and i can’t help but feel like they’re trying to center men as more important than women & trying to steal/redefine women-only terms as just “not men”; it’s like they’re admitting that they see male as the default & females as a deviation
the conservative, religious idea that a prostitute is a sexually deviant harlot who sells her body because she loves to sin and the liberal “sex positive” idea that a prostitute is a sexually empowered woman who sells her body because she loves to fuck are the same idea.
they both place the blame on the prostituted woman, they both ignore the existence of pimps and johns, and they both paint a picture of a mythological woman who simply does not exist.
neither considers that the woman is a victim, that she is being raped, and that the men who exploit her are to be blamed.
Someone said that if porn was really empowering, women would have to fight for the right to be included in it because men would try to keep us out of the industry. I’m going to think about that statement a lot.
I don’t understand how anyone can say there’s no universal female experience, or that women form different background can’t empathize with each other. Just the limited about of news regarding the female suffering of Afghanistan has me in tears.
Murals of women are being painted over. Female news anchors are being told it’s unsafe for them to do their job. The Taliban military is out in the streets patrolling the markets for women. Young girls, children, are being sold and enslaved as “wives”.
How can you be so heartless as to say there is no sex binary? How can you say women don’t need to come together as a class and fight for each other? How can you be so blind to the reality of women globally?
“We need men! We need men to be construction workers / carpenters / plumbers / electricians!!!” If men never existed, women would be filling those positions. There is nothing special about men that makes them better at these jobs, women are just as capable.
This woman is bravely speaking out about prostitution:
And of course, you can see this in the quotes.
"many SW, including me, do not perform full service". So you're saying you're selling pics of yourself online (yeah she has an onlyfans), you've never been in a situation where you had to let men penetrate you for money because, but you're still... scolding someone who actually was. Got it.
"It's treating all SWs as an exploited monolith that should be saved". Oh fucking hell. A woman opens up on the worst social media about her injuries due to the sex trade... And you're scolding her about how problematic that is? Shut the fuck up forever
