So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?

"‘To be anorexic or bulimic is to be a political prisoner,’ wrote Susie Orbach in the seminal work on eating disorders, Fat is a Feminist Issue, a prisoner of the white supremacist patriarchy, and its narrow prescriptions about proper womanhood. We cannot let heterosexist and racist ideals make us destroy ourselves from the inside out. At the height of my restricted eating practises, the Earth began and ended at the parametres of my body. I suspect that starving women in the West are praised by society for their achievements in reducing themselves, because in their dazed, exhausted state there is no threat to the existing order of things. A starving woman has no energy to raise her consciousness or raise hell at the sickness of the wider structural issues that have lulled her into the very stupor she finds herself in — and so the perpetual, vicious circle is left to fester."
— Kesiena Boom (via philo-gyny)

Hey y’all! 

In my never-ending quest to pay my bills as a stay at home Mom, I’m trying out a new idea: shirts!

So I’ve designed a Black Girl Supremacy shirt and tank top in the Beyonce ‘Flawless’ style. If this design does well then I’ll be releasing a line of Black girl themed shirts. 

I need to sell at least 15 shirts for them to be printed so please boost and buy!!

  • what white feminists say: what the fuck is with dividing feminists into “white feminists” and whatever other fucking categories there are? That is the most ass-backwards and counter-productive shit I’ve seen in a long time. Haven’t we all realized that we need to work together and understand each other instead of constantly alienating one another? I get that some feminists don’t entirely recognize their privilege but saying shit like that is not going to make them want to understand and do better.
  • what white feminists mean: instead of wasting your time trying to make a safe inclusive space dedicated to your struggles (which we made necessary by excluding you in the first place), you should devote your energies to a movement created for my benefit. it doesn't matter if my movement excludes you and focuses only on my needs and tokenizes you and people like you, or if you experience racism from the people in my movement. once i get what i want from my movement, then you can talk about your needs and you can teach us how not to be racist (but we won't really care or listen because we got what we wanted)
