blackenedbutterfly: Won’t anyone think of the whites???!??!?! It’s not ironic. It’s not cute. It is a threat. How many people are murdered because they are cis? How many people are denied employment, housing, health services, turned away from shelters, refused aid, and are subjected to constant ridicule… Stop race baiting and making shit up. It doesn’t make your fucked up...

What a woman is not

Radfem political lesbians: “Encourage lesbianism.” “I’m a lesbian for political reasons.” “I gave up heterosexuality.” I know it’s not a new thing, yet a lot of this bullshit is popping up lately, here on Tumblr and elsewhere on the Internet.

Why Radical Feminism? →
Because men’s orgasms are not more important than: infants. animals. women. sanity. human rights. inanimate objects which men fetishize.

girlsandgifs: queernonymoose: As I said to my biffle Nij, who has also been bashing back at the rad cis scum that have been attacking trans* folks, I wanted to thank specifically many of the cis Black women and other cis Women of Color who have also came to the defense. You have pretty much outdid many of the white cis… Of course! The only reason women of color are critical of trans is...
A lesson in Intersectionality *TM*
Women of Color = Women Women with Disabilities = Women Colonized Women = Women Immigrant Women = Women Lesbian Women = Women Third World Women = Women Prostituted Women = Women Trans Women =/= Women.
