Marilyn Manson debating religious fundamentalists during the 1990s…very funny!
Empires aren’t only built/maintained by politicians, there is a significant cultural aspect to it. How people who are colonized are written about, thought of as, and depicted as under imperial knowledge-production is vital. Imperialism isn’t relationship between governments, it extends to the population (both the colonizers and the colonized). The colonizers have a very significant role as they help produce the image of the colonized.
Hi, I’m Cheryl. I’m an 18 year old disabled trans woman with an emotionally abusive abusive family that I recently left because they were really close to making me try to kill myself again, and because of that I am now homeless. I’m currently staying with a friend but I don’t know…
Oh my god this headache. Owwww…sorry if my typing gets weird.
Yeah, I also dislike the negative posts about bisexuals. My girlfriend of almost four years is bisexual and it kind of hurts me when people say stuff like that. I’m a lesbian, so it doesn’t affect me personally, but it is hurtful toward the person I want to marry someday.
honestly some of the posts I see in the radfem community that talk so disparagingly about bisexuality/bisexuals make my heart just sink. I get that we don’t need the same protection and precedence as lesbians but being grouped with straight people and queersexuals in critical discussions is more than a little disheartening.
One tumblr person told me I wasn’t really a lesbian because I am dating a bisexual. Actually that was kind of funny… Anyways, just know what not all lesbian radfems have problems with bisexual women =)
“The Masculine Woman
She is mannish from shoes to her hat,
Coat, collars, stiff shirt and cravat.
She’d wear pants in the street
To make her complete,
But she knows the law won’t stand for that.”
