If you’re a girl or young woman reading this I highly recommend getting to know some older women. So I know they’re stereotyped as ‘Karens’, ‘Mombies’ or religious bigots. But. I promise that among them are women who have learnt what it’s important to give a fuck about and what’s nonsense. Women who know exactly what they want and have the power and knowledge of just how to achieve that. They’re full of life, they’re free, but popular culture just doesn’t like portraying them.
Talk to them. They’ll show you what you have to look forward to as you age and you will learn so much!

I’m super pro women in STEM but also…
Women in vocational trades, ya feel me?
Female mechanics, joiners, painters, carpenters, builders, fabricators, plasterers etc.
I’ve been in a trade job for all of my working life and there are just ENDLESS men in every direction! I wanna see more women around me absolutely killing it at what the world perceives to be masculine jobs! So far in my 11 year career I have met only 1 woman doing the same job as me and it was like meeting a unicorn for the first time, it was awesome and just so nice to see someone like me doing the same job. I wanna see it more.

“We never say that all men deserve to feel beautiful. We never say that each man is beautiful in his own way. We don’t have huge campaigns aimed at young boys trying to convince them that they’re attractive, probably because we very rarely correlate a man’s worth with his appearance. The problem is that a woman’s value in this world is still very much attached to her appearance, and telling her that she should or deserves to feel beautiful does more to promote that than negate it. Telling women that they “deserve” to feel pretty plays right in to the idea that prettiness should be important to them. And having books and movies aimed at young women where every female protagonist turns out to be beautiful (whereas many of the antagonists are described in much less flattering terms) reinforces the message that beauty has some kind of morality attached to it, and that all heroines are somehow pretty.”

The way suicide is constantly mentioned in discussions of allowing children to medically transition feels insidious. It’s never discussing or mourning actual suicides but baiting potential child suicides. Almost like telling kids with dysphoria that that’s their alternative to not transitioning.

Oh my god embarrassment to your mother anon here, i misinterpreted your bio. I'm so sorry omfg i take my words back i thought you were a transbian calling himself a lesbian slur
You get a pass I love the energy here! Also my bio is intentionally confusing bc gender lovers can't hurt me if they can't identify my gender for some reason.

Alfred Kinsey was a pedophile who went on to study & gauge "child orgasms" by hiring pedophiles to rape them and died out of the complications of hanging himself by its testicles so there's no way I'm ever going to take anything this psychopath came out with and I'm legitimately confused whenever I see people rehashing his stupid sexual orientation scale theory

Anti-feminists unironically be like: Women in the United States are less oppressed than women in a lot of other countries, so despite the fact that in a handful of states they have less bodily autonomy than a corpse, despite the fact that careers that they dominate are consistently paid less, despite the fact that the men who rape and abuse them are rarely bought to justice, despite the fact that they’re told from childhood that their natural bodies are disgusting and it’s better to be dead than to be ugly, the entire feminist movement is a huge waste of time. I am very smart.

cannot get over people earnestly asking why prince phillip was “problematic” as if it’s not a fundamentally diseased worldview to imagine that people must be objectionable on the level of the individual encounter for us to hold them responsible for violent regimes that they actively maintained and benefited from
