is it just me or did shonda waste a perfectly good opportunity for bisexual representation with the whole walsh/aiden/michaela storyline? like can the  ”i was a horny teen experimenting” trope go away because that just encourages the whole bisexuality is a phase mindset.

ok nah the idea that terfs and stuff arent feminists is bad because youre pretending that feminists can do no wrong. it doesnt stop them from identifying as feminists. it doesnt stop them from being feminists when you tell them they arent. they are feminists. they are terrible people with a poisonous and disgusting type of feminism, but they are still feminists

It also erases important parts of feminist history in an effort to make the movement look benign and more attractive to new members. For example, feminists not only successfully shut down trans health care and Sandy Stone's involvement with Olivia Records, it is completely forgotten and rarely known outside of trans feminist circles, and with this trans women who were a central part of the feminist community are also erased.

Terfs had and still have a lot of power within feminist spaces, they are still viewed favourably by the media and accademia (shit, even Brennan got a ridiculously positive write up in Forbes just last year, and all she does is run hate sites to harrass trans women), they have that power because they became a huge part of the feminist movement and that’s one of the biggest problems the movement has. Because of the foundation they built in the 70s, to not acknowledge their disgusting campaign does a disservice to the trans women who had their lives threatened and destroyed by this vicious brand of feminism, with this erasure terfs can also pretend that it never happened and that they also fresh with no problematic history, and ultimately this stops it from being dissmantled today.

We can’t ignore that this happened because it is an uncomfortable truth, in order to be better feminists we have to accept that there were terrible people who made our history and not revise it to focus on just the good parts. Feminist history is erased enough as it is, we need to recognise all of it and recognise trans women’s involvement in it.

After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.

BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?

BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?

The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

guns… literally more important than the lives of women in the state of loveable mormons

#gamergate is the violent silencing of women’s voices.

It will never cease to amuse me that UKIP seem to have got their colour scheme from the Standing At The Back Dressed Stupidly And Looking Stupid Party from Blackadder.
