date a boy who’s a wolf. not figuratively a wolf literally date a fucking wolf. wolves are strong and cute and have powerful jaws for crushing the bones of men who harass you on the street. wolves are better than men in every respect. have you ever seen a man kill an elk with his teeth, howl at the moon, run at speeds of 35 mph. wolves CANNOT call you slurs
Just think about it
Just think about it, there could be an increasingly number of aggressive homosexual women in the U.S. within the next decade.
At the same time [as men were being imprisoned for homosexuality], women were increasingly caught up in the psychiatric system, and women who desired other women were diagnosed with a form of schizophrenia which was the same thing the authorities would use for political dissidents. So in a way, women who desired other women became sexual dissidents, and they were committed to psychiatric institutions and given all sorts of cures. For instance, electroshock therapy or sometimes even putting them into a diabetic coma with the hope that when they came out they would stop desiring other women.
Interestingly enough, if they couldn’t cure a woman of her desire for other women they would actually just change the gender assignment on her papers, so they would allow her, allow him to now have a transgender identity, and you would change your documents from female to male, which allowed you to do all sorts of things. It allowed you to go get a job and get a man’s pay scale, you could wear men’s uniforms to work, you could marry your girlfriend, you could also go to a couple of hospitals later on in the regime from the 1970s and 1980s forward, there were a few hospitals that would even perform certain surgical procedures to help your body look more like a man’s.
So while men were caught up in the law, women were caught up in a psychiatric cure that also served a chilling and terrorising effect on those populations because of course you never knew when that could happen to you, if your relatives would commit you, if the police would use that to blackmail you. And it was used in a very similar way, although it was a very different idea, of men having sex with men as a crime, and that to be punished, and women having sex with women as a form of psychiatric illness that had to be cured.— Laurie Essig, on Russia’s treatment of same-sex attracted women in the mid-20th century.

notyourrgrrl asked: Men can be feminists..... Feminism is the radical notion that women are people and should be treated equally to men. Guys can most certainly have that belief, even though they will never know what it's like to be oppressed because of their gender.
"Feminism is the radical notion that women are people" might look nice as a Facebook status quote or floral backpatch from Etsy but has absolutely no value in the real world alongside women who see feminism as a movement that seeks to liberate women from the patriarchy
There are many misogynists, rapists, abusers, legislators, etc. that are very, very capable of seeing women as people — people they do not respect, value or can put on the same level as men
There are many men I love in my life whether they’re a family member, friend or a significant other, but I do not trust men enough to give them equal footing in a woman’s movement that gives me so much solace from their entitled masculine bullshit
Like seriously though you are literally reducing your feminist analysis to a bumper sticker.
^^ thats male “feminists” for ya.
"I read something on a bumper sticker, I agree, oh me much feminist, very progressive"
