"But Tia, if there was no religion people would go around murdering and raping each other". If you need the threat of a horrific afterlife to stop you from murdering and raping people you ARE a sociopath. If you need to be threated with eternal suffering to not act like a monster you already are one. Stop chasing fairy tales and look in the god damn mirror!
sex organs either produce gametes, i.e. eggs and sperm, or are involved in sexual reproduction. breasts do not fit this criteria.
breasts are a secondary sex characteristic which we have because of sexual dimorphism in humans
other secondary sex characteristics include wider hips in women and an adam’s apple in men
breasts are not fucking sex organs

Are you fucking kidding me? How fucking offensive is this shit?

If you read my post, I said that other types of activism can support other causes. I agree that trans activism (the non-misogynistic kind) should support trans individuals ect. But people who were born with two XX chromosomes, a vagina and ovaries have their own problems that people without those things need to stop derailing. If you are born with a vagina, your access to contraceptives and other types of healthcare are limited worldwide. Men literally control your body and can force you to have a child against your will.If you suffer from menorrhagia and live in a place where access to these resources is limited you have to suffer through a ton of pain because you are female and men care more about religion than your health.I’m so tired of this whole “feminism needs to include everyone” nonsense. Feminism is about adult human females and the oppression women face due to their biology. It is about the trauma of girlhood and female adolescence. It is about the fact that…
Being raised female IS a form of trauma because it teaches women to be submissive. Girlhood robs women of their full humanity.
Of course other people experience legal discrimination, harassment ect. These issues should be discussed. But they should not be conflated with the experiences of people who were born with a vagina.
Yes, but if you say “women” people on tumblr get confused.I’m so tired of this whole “feminism needs to include everyone” nonsense. Feminism is about adult human females and the oppression women face due to their biology. It is about the trauma of girlhood and female adolescence. It is about the fact that lawmakers around the world…
An Iranian lesbian has said the country’s authorities tried to force her into having gender reassignment surgery to “fix” her sexuality.
When we say pushing for transition is a form of homophobia, this is what we’re talking about.
Feminism should not be about men or “feminine” persons. We shouldn’t be discussing how feminism will or will not benefit these other groups.
I’m so tired of non-adult human females complaining about how feminism isn’t helping them enough/isn’t centered around them. Other social movements exist to help other groups of people (and they rightfully should!).
But biology-based oppression and girlhood are experiences that are specific to people who were born and raised female. Activism that is meant to liberate women from sex-based oppression and the harms of female socialization cannot really include other groups of people because they have not experienced these things.
Its that simple. I’m so tired of these conversations being derailed.
this website’s attitude toward gender non-conforming children and its universal insistence that boys who wear skirts aren’t really boys and girls who like short hair and non-feminine colors aren’t really girls is SO primitive and harmful.
how is ~othering~ children who don’t meet your performance standards for their sex NOT reinforcing oppressive patriarchal gender roles and expectations?
