We’re still so caught up in appearances. No matter what a woman has achieved, the conversation still revolves around what she is wearing.
You weren’t ‘assigned’ a sex. Sex is an important part of biology and is not a choice or an identity.
You were assigned gender DUE to your sex. Gender is oppressive. It perpetuates misogyny through dictating females to be submissive and subordinate, and men as dominant and superior.
Again: sex is not the problem. Please stop acting like biology is wrong and gender (which harms women) is somehow more important.
THIS THIS THIS THIS
This means so much seriously. Thank you so much for reading my bullshit for the past 2 years. You have no idea how much these messages mean to me, seriously. Thank you. You’re the best and I hope all is going well for you too. Xoxoxo.
To an extent, yes. First and foremost, I am critical of gender roles. I believe sex is biological and gender is a social construct. I also do not agree with some of the psychiatric practices and medical practices that are being used to treat trans people. Especially when it comes to treating “trans children.” I have no problem with transwomen as people, I want to make that very clear. I have a problem with some of the ideologies and views of the trans community. I believe that some aspects of transgender ideology are upholding sexist gender roles. I believe all communities and ideologies and subcultures are subject to criticism. I believe feminism should always serve women first, regardless if they’re cis or trans. Unfortunately, there are some things that bother me about the way transwomen say cis women should view their anatomy. It has become common for the politically correct phrase to be “vaginas are not feminine” and things like women shouldn’t be talking about their periods and other women’s issues because it could trigger transwomen. I find this to be a ridiculous. This is just continuing to stifle discussion of women’s bodies. Also the idea that cis women are “privileged” for being cis. This is ridiculous. Women experience sexism for their gender, to imply we have some kind of privilege for being cis women is just ridiculous. Do we experience transdiscrimination? No, but were definitely not privileged. That’s ridiculous. Or how lesbians are transphobic because they do not want to have sexual relations with someone who still has male anatomy. I know that someone will probably read this and scream “TERF” at me no matter what I say, but I want to make it clear that I have a problem with some of the ideologies and practices of the community as a whole, not transwomen in themselves. And since transwomen are apart of feminism, we as feminists need to be accepting of transwomen but also be able to think critically about some of the implications this may have on feminism as a movement. And I think transwomen need to understand that for a lot of women vaginas and breasts and periods and child bearing is very closely entwined with being a women and “womanhood”. I mean when it comes down to it women experience sexism because of our body parts. Because of our vaginas and breasts, to ask women not to equate vagina and breasts to womanhood is just offensive to me.
This didn’t even come close to offending me sorry try again
being vegan is so emotionally draining like i can’t even look at someone drinking a milkshake without wanting to cry this is ridiculous if your ‘food’ makes me emotionally distressed that might be a sign that it’s not good
This post makes me laugh everytime. I wish I had so few problems. I wish that my biggest problem was someone else enjoying a milkshake, it must be a really great life. Sobbing over someone else enjoying a milkshake Jesus Christ

"WHY IS MY ADDICTION IN QUESTION FROM A JOKE PICTURE WHY ARE YOU DISCUSSING MY ADDICTION?!?!" - SNAR.
As she is literally questioning and discussing and denying embers anorexia 24/7. This is truly fucking hilarious. So you can question and discuss everyone else’s mental health & anorexia but yours is off limits? Stupid bitch. She wonders why ember won’t send out copies of her anorexia diagnosis yet gets incredibly defensive when someone even talks about her getting “narcamed”. GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE. And lol at everyone riding SNAR’s dick, it’s pathetic.
