You all are certainly doing something wrong.
All of you.
And before I get messages talking about how I need to stand in solidarity with other feminists;
I get the message, quite often, that feminists shouldn’t be seen fighting. That we have to agree to take our disputes behind a veil where anti-feminists won’t see. That when we fight we are hurting our cause.
I would like to disagree. Not respectfully but with a giant neon sign around my neck saying “FUCK THAT”. People who try to justify using oppressive language, imagery or logic do not deserve my support.
Our movement isn’t weakened by debate. When we call each other out, as we must, it’s not out of hatred towards feminism and feminists. It’s out of a great sense of love for our cause. It’s about becoming less and less oppressive, it’s about realizing that our world view is not free from criticism just because we read Full Frontal Feminism at 14.
Excuse me while I go off on this girl for a few seconds.
“Woman” actually as I’m an adult
Body-policing? Since when is being chubby a policy? I think chubby, skinny, fat…if you’re happy with it what’s wrong with it? There is no policy for body appearances. Slut shaming? My name is virginsluts. Free your inner slut, you whores. As long as you stay away from anyone claimed to me…I could give two shits and half a fuck about. It’s your body, use it when you want too. The fact that you so quickly judged me into being an anti feminist, because I vocalized my preference over another just proves that you are just that. A judgmental ignorant superficial cunt. Get your facts straight before you decide to place judgment on your cloud up there so high in the sky. I have no idea who you are, or what your blog even looks like, but you are the prime example of a sheep in wolf’s clothing. We can smell you.
Body policing - it’s from the word “police”. It means, in this case, to impart your preferential body type as the superior type.
By saying “I think chubby feminists are so much hotter than skinny sluts” you created a false dichotomy that sets a “us vs them” sort of dialogue.
I am a feminist. I also have skinny privilege. I also am a slut. None of these are in contradiction to each other.
If you wanted to express your preference there were other ways to do that.
And yes. Yes, I have a cunt. Please don’t call me anti-feminist while using an body party typically thought of as female to insult me.
Blah, blah. We’re misandrists, we’re anti-equality, we’re a bunch of queers (hell fuck yeah I am), we’re “sluts” (as if that’s a bad thing!), we’re unable to get laid.
Blahblah, I’m sure this is the first time anyone has ever said anything negative about feminism, yes, you supporting the kyriarchy is so edgy, blah.
