Men have no idea what it takes to be a woman. To grin and bear it and persevere. The constant state of war, navigating the relentless obstacle course of testosterone and misogyny, where they think we are property to be owned and plowed. But we’re not. We are people, just like them. Equals, in fact, or at least that’s the core of what feminism is still trying to achieve. http://fuckyeahwomenprotesting.tumblr.com/post/160956931985/it-was-easier-to-give-in-than-keep-running
With attitudes of ownership towards female bodies like this, it’s no wonder society struggles with the concept of ‘my body, my choice’ with regard to abortions. If a woman you supposedly love is being given pain and discomfort by a part of her body, and you can’t imagine why that is more important than your own appreciation of that part of her body. http://fuckyeahwomenprotesting.tumblr.com/post/154983670545/nestofstraightlines-flowerlygirls#notes
Cellulite is a female secondary sex characteristic and should be celebrated as a rite of womanhood, not despised or eradicated. It has to do with the way our bodies network fat. Female bodies create sort of a mesh network to support fat (female bodies are MUCH more hardy in times of stress) and it can present as delightfully lumpy. More than 90% of women have visible cellulite, but all women store fat in this manner. http://imaginal.tumblr.com/post/161279211176
whether it's this or dress codes, the oppression of women across the board needs to stop, and telling one group of oppressed women not to complain because they could always have it worse isn't helpful, it's a THREAT. Oppression is not a competition.
"Kill who now? Did you just say their going to kill me? Call me stupid or dumb or whatever, but i'm a tad confused right now. To be honest, i'd never thought i'd actually beg someone to take me back to college"...
