zaynmalikssweetheart1997 asked: Okay that stupid ass Joan rivers twitter post? Racism has nothing to do with feminism. Shut up and sit down because your making yourself look ignorant.


Answer:

owning-my-truth:

To the contrary, clueless white woman, racism has been central to white feminism from the beginning. Some quotes via The-Toast and this article:

Susan B. Anthony:

“What words can express her [the white woman’s] humiliation when, at the close of this long conflict, the government which she had served so faithfully held her unworthy of a voice in its councils, while it recognized as the political superiors of all the noble women of the nation the negro men just emerged from slavery, and not only totally illiterate, but also densely ignorant of every public question.” 

Elizabeth Cady Stanton:

“What will we and our daughters suffer if these degraded black men are allowed to have the rights that would make them even worse than our Saxon fathers?”

More Elizabeth Cady Stanton:

“American women of wealth, education, virtue and refinement, if you do not wish the lower orders of Chinese, Africans, Germans and Irish, with their low ideas of womanhood, to make laws for you and your daughters … awake to the danger of your present position and demand that woman, too, shall be represented in the government!”

Belle Kearney:

“The enfranchisement of women would insure immediate and durable white supremacy, honestly attained, for upon unquestioned authority it is stated that in every southern State but one there are more educated women than all the illiterate voters, white and black, native and foreign, combined. As you probably know, of all the women in the South who can read and write, ten out of every eleven are white. When it comes to the proportion of property between the races, that of the white outweighs that of the black immeasurably.”

Anna Howard Shaw:

“You have put the ballot in the hands of your black men, thus making them political superiors of white women. Never before in the history of the world have men made former slaves the political masters of their former mistresses!”

Laura Clay:

“The white men, reinforced by the educated white women, could ‘snow under’ the Negro vote in every State, and the white race would maintain its supremacy without corrupting or intimidating the Negroes.”

Frances Willard:

“Alien illiterates rule our cities today; the saloon is their palace, and the toddy stick their scepter. The colored race multiplies like the locusts of Egypt.”

Carrie Chapman Catt:

“White supremacy will be strengthened, not weakened, by women’s suffrage.”

Rebecca Ann Latimer Felton:

“I do not want to see a negro man walk to the polls and vote on who should handle my tax money, while I myself cannot vote at all…When there is not enough religion in the pulpit to organize a crusade against sin; nor justice in the court house to promptly punish crime; nor manhood enough in the nation to put a sheltering arm about innocence and virtue—-if it needs lynching to protect woman’s dearest possession from the ravening human beasts—-then I say lynch, a thousand times a week if necessary.”

So please spare me with your ahistorical bullshit.

it’s so weird that men can make endless misogynistic comments and not have to reassure people that they don’t hate women but when women, especially those in the spotlight, talk about things concerning women they feel an overwhelming need to constantly reassure the world that they don’t hate men, that they love men. 

and by weird i mean a cultural norm to demean women and overvalue men.

"bisexuality doesn’t mean you can’t be monogamous" yes this is true

BUT

have you considered the fact that some bisexuals are polyamorous and that doesn’t make them any more deserving of biphobic shittery and that who bisexuals are and are not in (sometimes simultaneous) relationships with is their business and that of their partner(s)?? don’t let monosexuals dictate which kinds of bisexuals are worthy of respect.

mycatsneezeslikealot asked: if men and women should have equal rights then why are you against men wanting rights? feminism isn't about women being better then men is it?...


Answer:

tamorapierce:

w3f3k:

fuckyeahcourtneystodden:

im against men complaining about wanting ‘mens rights’ because it’s never about wanting anything other than to silence and talk over women.

if men’s rights activists worked to open crisis centers for male victims of abuse and survivors of sexual violence i would love that. if men’s rights activists worked toward support and parenting classes and education for single fathers that would be amazing. if men’s rights activists worked toward educating fellow men on practicing safe sex and consent i would be so on board. if men’s rights activists worked toward breaking down the chains of racism of their brothers of colour i would be so happy. if men’s rights activists advocated for anything of value i would be so down for it all.

instead men’s rights activists sit on the fucking internet talking over women and attempting to silence them and their oppression with arbitrary add-ons, bullshit about the friendzone, and useless fucking nonsense.

so no. i have zero use for men’s rights activists because it’s never about advocating for things men need and instead it’s always about making sure women shut up about what they need. they aren’t “men’s rights activists” they’re “anti women activists”. point blank.

finally feminism is not about women being better than men nor is it about being equal to men. feminism is about women being liberated from men. i have no desire to be considered “equal” to the system of power that allows men to abuse, murder, and rape us. i want liberation from patriarchy and men.

This

This.  Equality, not the right to talk over women.  Friendship, not “if you don’t date me just because I want you to then you’re putting me in this fakey space where you use me.”  Rape, not “there are plenty of false accusations of rape and I know a guy who was falsely accused.”  If men are abused, instead of talking about it, care for the abused.  Build shelters and job centers for GT youth and the boys who are discarded by certain religious movements.  Do things for men, don’t whine about wanting women to do things for you.

no you know what? i’m back. jason robert brown is allowed to be bitter that none of his shows have played more than 150 performances BECAUSE he has three tony awards. the american theatre wing obviously thought his work was thoughtful, delicate and intelligent enough to warrant three awards, but the general public refuses to acknowledge that by attending his shows.
