im not going to censor myself by saying that most cis people are transphobic instead of saying all of them are

that allows cis people to sigh with relief and think “yes, only most of us are transphobic, and i am one of the good ones” rather than actually considering their thoughts and actions and really asking themselves, ” do i do that?” “am i transphobic?”

100% of people who tell you you’re too sensitive are saying it because they don’t want to be held responsible for your reaction when they mistreat you

Junior high girls in Illinois organize protest against sexist "no leggings" dress code

Last month, middle-school girls in Evanston, Ill., rebelled against their school dress code by showing up to class wearing leggings en mass. Administrators at Haven Middle School say that girls in leggings are “distracting to boys”; girls counter that they simply want to attend class in the comfort that leggings provide and don’t deserve to be penalized for how boys respond. I talked to Sophie Hasty, 13, one of the leaders of the protest, about the agony of getting “dress-coded” at school, the political power of Instagram, and the benefits of leggings.

But this year, teachers started to get stricter about it and giving stupid reasons for it. The reason was basically: “boys.” It’s a lot like saying that if guys do something to harass us, it’s our fault for that. We’re the ones being punished for what guys do.

I asked a teacher to tell us about an incident where a girl was wearing leggings and a guy was getting distracted. There hasn’t been one.

I’ve caught myself pulling down my shirt when I’m walking past teachers so they will notice the leggings a little less. But now I’ve caught myself in public doing that, too, and that’s making me annoyed. I don’t want to be in public and worry about people seeing me in leggings. It’s not a big deal to me, and the school is trying to make me feel bad about it.

[Boys] think the dress code is against them, too, because they don’t like having it blamed on them by teachers, being told that the dress code is their fault. They don’t think it’s fair to them or us.

how can you not see ableism as a feminist issue

autistic girls, especially black autistic girls, are misdiagnosed and underdiagnosed because of the focus on white cis boys and how they present as autistic

disabled girls and women often have their consent violated, both in medical procedures and otherwise, our bodies and minds are often not considered are own and we are dismissed as not having the capacity to make our own decisions

on top of that many disabled girls are seen as delusional and their speaking out about the abuse they have face, by whatever communication method, is often seen as them making things up and over reacting

many disabled women are fetishised and seen as an outrageous ‘thing’ to fuck, but are not seen as human

disabled girls, especially physically disabled girls, do not live up to ideas of beauty in our society and often have extreme self esteem issues

disabled women and girls face more shit than you could ever know and I need you to understand

Ableism. Is. A. Feminist. Issue.

do men have resting bitch faces as well or do they not have negative characteristics ascribed to them for putting on a neutral rather than a deliriously happy facial expression

why do white feminists think ‘BUT WE NEED MORE LEADING WOMEN IN THE ACTION GENRE’ is a good excuse to watch lucy do they honestly believe hollywhite just completely missed GRAVITY and the ENTIRE MOTHERFUCKING HUNGER GAMES FRANCHISE what do they think the funding for…

fauxcyborg:

k, can we stop saying “have their own children” when talking about LGBT+ people having kids through pregnancies. that is not the only way to have ‘your own children’. 

It’s not the face, but the expressions on it. It’s not the voice, but what you say. It’s not how you look in that body, but the things you do with it. You are beautiful.

I wanted to put this quote & these gifs together because every time I think of Rinn I think of this quote. And it’s such a beautiful quote.

''Men are devalued more than before, and they play a smaller role as an object of utility. Men are not depicted in media as glorious, thoughtful, or even complete with character. I can’t name one benefit to being male in today’s world, other than our complete lack of the menstruation period and pregnancy.'' what do you think of that statement?

misandry-mermaid:

I think it’s cissexist, ignorant, cherry-picked and a clear result of the unexamined privilege that must have come from someone who has never spent more than a minute attempting to empathize or view the world outside their own personal experiences.
