As a feminist, I shouldn’t have to prove that I don’t hate men. In patriarchal society, if men aren’t your main focus, then you’re a man hater. In a patriarchal society, being a man hater is worse than being a rapist.In a patriarchal society, we value…
I feel like this should be obvious. But every time I see someone say “yes means yes; no means no” I cringe a little. Consent isn’t always that simple.
this is hella true among individuals and it can be extended as well to a society — i.e. patriarchy is not a “situation” in which yes and no are equally acceptable answers for women to give men.
Bet you haven’t thought about this before: How “slut-shaming” has been written into school dress codes across the country.
What pisses me off is the horrible fucking irony of the whole thing, that in stating these outfits are “distracting” and forcing inspections and shit, it objectifies and sexualizes these girls more than any outfit ever fucking could.
This is a video i created on anti-blackness.
Multiple times I have been forced to endure the constant voice of whiteness and racism that many black college students have to. I’ve been accused of having a black-only scholarship, called the “n-word” or ghetto. Then I was scolded if I reacted violently and told I was backing stereotypes.
So i decided what would it be like if white had to endure the hatred of blacks without any chance to defend themselves and looking at the things they caused.
heartbreaking. please watch and share

We all live busy lives, but let us not forget nor ignore the fact that some people are viewed as worth more than others. This is an injustice in itself but it presents many more hidden injustices within our daily lives which must be pinpointed and corrected. Gender, race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, ability, intelligence, religion, place of birth, education, etc. should not be determinants of our value as human beings. In order to prevent further oppression and move beyond that which already exists, we must be aware of the problems we face.
