I feel so proud when friends tell me their parents like me. Like damn right they do, I am a delight.
"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….
First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.
In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.
In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”
First time experiencing the rain.
Something that’ll make you smile…
This fucking show
I remember when I used to stand outside of that stage door and watch all these girls come out of there, with their eyelashes and their make-up and I’d think: “God I’ll never be that old. I’ll never be that old. I’ll never be old enough to come out of that stage door.” But deep down inside I knew I would, and goddamn it, I’ve come this far and I’m not giving up now.
Perhaps Madame Leota can establish contact.
She has a remarkable head for materializing the disembodied…
Let’s just get a couple of things straight.
- Not all women who participate in BDSM are submissives
- Not all women who participate in BDSM have male partners
- Submissives in healthy BDSM relationships give ongoing enthusiastic consent, set limits and participate in negotiations, use safe words and are provided with after care
If you criticise BDSM as ‘anti-feminist’ based on the assumption that all subs are abused, you don’t know what you’re talking about.
If you criticise BDSM as ‘anti-feminist’ based on the assumption that all female participants in BDSM are straight subs, you might want to reconsider how feminist your beliefs really are.
