White, straight/bi feminists: use your privilege to support and get behind WOC & lesbians without talking over them and criticizing their safe spaces

since when do bi feminists talk over lesbians though? it’s always been the other way around. stop this bisexual = not queer nonsense. 

edit: op is radfem who let this trash on my dash

Lesbians deal with FAR more oppression than bisexuals.

Excuse the fuck out of you.

when are we going to stop with this whole “feminism = gender equality” bullshit

it’s not about equality. it’s about liberation. it has never been about equality. our patriarchal society recognizes two and only two sex classes: oppressor and oppressed. rights do not come with being…

Most people in the United States think of feminism or the most commonly used term “women’s lib” as a movement that aims to make women the social equals of men. This broad definition, popularized by the media and mainstream segments of the movement, raises problematic questions. Since men are not equals in white supremacist, capitalist, patriarchal class structure, which men do women want to be equal to? Do women share a common vision of what equality means? Implicit in this simplistic definition of women’s liberation is a dismissal of race and class as factors that, in conjunction with sexism, determine the extent to which an individual will be discriminated against, exploited, or oppressed.

Liberal vs. Radical Feminism on gender, in a nutshell.

In her book, “Against Our Will”, Susan Brownmiller has a chapter where she looks at what happens to men who are raped in prison. The answer: they often become “feminine” - masochistic, “soft”, delicate etc.

Femininity is internalized abuse. It is the psychology and disposition of a masochist. It is ritualized submission.

It is seen as clearly pathological and unhealthy when manifested in men - those human beings who matter, who are entitled to real dignity. When manifested in women, it is considered “natural” - a reflection of what women really, innately are.

Abolish gender. Women and girls deserve nothing less.

being a feminist means changing your behaviour to better support women, not re-labelling everything you do already as ~an empowering statement~
