“I had a boyfriend not so long ago who, whenever we got into an argument, would accuse me of “going soap opera.” “Here comes Telemundo!” he would shout. His (clearly gendered and vaguely racist) insult was supposed to make me feel like my anger wasn’t valid—that it was frivolous and silly, that I was being overly dramatic. This was his not-so-subtle way of trying to shut me up—by accusing me of being emotional. (Unlike men, whose anger is always logical, of course.) Unfortunately, calling me out like this often worked. It felt immobilizing to be called dramatic. Even if you know you’re being reasonable, we’ve internalized sexism so much, sometimes we even begin to doubt ourselves.” —from Jessica Valenti’s He’s a Stud, She’s a Slut and 49 Other Double Standards Every Woman Should Know. (via princessjinx) this reminds me of when people call my anger cute or endearing. It’s not cute, and it’s not endearing. So patronising.
“next time you’re looking at a woman and judging her think about what you’re doing. she isn’t there for you to look at, for you to judge, for you to honk or whistle or yell at. she is a human being with a body and mind all her own, and nothing of that is ok for you to objectify.” —me (via ludio)
“The purpose of feminism is to end itself. Andrea Dworkin called it one day without rape. Others have other land posts measuring feminism’s victory. The purpose of feminism is to one day find ourselves where we don’t need to fight for human rights through the lens of women’s oppression. Note: I didn’t write that the purpose is to bring down the man. The purpose is not to have a female president. The purpose is to transform the infrastructure that holds kyriarchy in its place. Replacing men with women – of any race, ethnicity, creed, or ability – who refuse to acknowledge the insidious and mutating face of gender oppression is not forward stepping. It’s a perpetuation of history.” —My Ecdysis: Birthing a New Feminism (via sophiologist, clingtomymouth) (via popnihilism) (via fuckyeahsociology, clingtomymouth-deactivated20100) (via omnivory) (via hickiesandhotpants) (via feedmemangoes)
“Whether it appears in a story about a man killing his girlfriend while calling her a whore or in trying to battle conservative claims that emergency contraception or the HPV vaccine will make girls promiscuous, the purity myth in America underlies more misogyny than most people would like to admit” — Jessica Valenti (The Purity Myth: How America’s Obsession with Virginity is Hurting Young Women)
