Why the fuck would I want to be equal to males? When did feminism go from dismantling patriarchy to “Equality”. I want the liberation of all females FROM males and patriarchy, not to hold hands with them! It’s been apparent to me for a while that most people can’t really imagine “equality.” All they imagine is having the existing power structure inverted. They think if I say I don’t want equality, that means I want females to have power over males(ya know like we’ve had for centuries).
I cannot decide whether this shows how unimaginative they are, or shows how aware they must be of what they do in order to so deeply fear having it turned on them.
Get it straight,
“A commitment to sexual equality with men is a commitment to becoming the rich instead of the poor, the rapist instead of the raped, the murderer instead of the murdered.” - Andrea Dworkin
"Most people in the United States think of feminism or the most commonly used term “women’s lib” as a movement that aims to make women the social equals of men. This broad definition, popularized by the media and mainstream segments of the movement, raises problematic questions. Since men are not equals in white supremacist, capitalist, patriarchal class structure, which men do women want to be equal to? Do women share a common vision of what equality means? Implicit in this simplistic definition of women’s liberation is a dismissal of race and class as factors that, in conjunction with sexism, determine the extent to which an individual will be discriminated against, exploited, or oppressed.”—Bell Hooks, Feminist Theory: From Margin to Center
“People sometimes say that we will know feminism has done its job when half the CEOs are women. That’s not feminism; to quote Catharine MacKinnon, it’s liberalism applied to women. Feminism will have won not when a few women get an equal piece of the oppression pie, served up in our sisters’ sweat, but when all dominating hierarchies - including economic ones - are dismantled.”― Lierre Keith
predatory male “feminists” who infiltrate groups of women with the obvious clear intent of sleeping with them
There’s a difference between joining that group with the intention of raping a woman and the intention of pursuing one of them for consensual sex, though.
You’re drawing a really basic line there, I think everyone will agree rape is bad? If a dude is going a feminist group with the intention of getting sex from it, he doesn’t need to be in that space, regardless of consent.
I’m not really much of a writer. I feel like everything I can say others have said better at some point, so I try to give credit where credit is due and just tell people to go read some radical feminist books. So many intelligent women who have come before me have so little recognition…
What about the trending desire of South Koreans to want to get surgery to look western? I’m genuinely curious. It wasn’t face paint or a mask, it was plastic surgery.
This is true. There are many asian people, as well as many black or hispanic people(basically anyone not white-passing) who will go to great lengths to look more western(white). The reason that this isn’t the same at all, and why it’s not racist or appropriation, is because white people are not oppressed. If whites were the marginalized systematically oppressed group and someone did that, then yes that is appropriation/racism.
The reason why physical differences between races or sex MATTER is because power needs them to. There is no “African brain” or “Chinese brain” just like there is no such thing as a “lady” or “dude” brain. Different races are not innately or fundamentally superior or inferior, just like men and women, while biologically different - are not mentally very different at all. Power needs the construct of “race” and the construct of “gender” to make certain groups of people feel different or lesser(in white people’s case, superior) in order to make power seem like the natural order of things. Thus, I think people who get surgery to look more white, are doing so because they know that white features are considered more favorable, beautiful, and valuable in the dominant culture - Which is a white supremacy.
I KNOW IT’S SUPER HARD FOR ME TO BE JUST ASIAN ENOUGH FOR THE SILVER SCREEN BECAUSE I AM ACTUALLY ASIAN SO THIS IS A HUGE HANDICAP TO OVERCOME
BUT I THINK THROUGH HARD WORK AND BEING A MODEL MINORITY I HAVE GOTTEN THERE.
PLEASE, JUST LET ME TRY OUT I TAKE EXCELLENT PICS AND I CAN IMITATE WHITE PEOPLE BEING ASIAN, NO PROBLEM.
LIKE I AM SORRY BECAUSE THE CLOSEST THING I HAD TO AN ORIENTAL-LOOKING RICE BASKET WAS MY CHEAP PLASTIC STRAINER BUT LOOK I TRIED.

I KNOW I AM NOT WHITE
BUT I PROMISE BEING ASIAN IS NOT A HANDICAP
WHEN PLAYING AN ASIAN PERSON IN A MOVIE!
Here’s the thing. A white person is not and will never be asian or black. I am fucking sick of seeing marginalized groups of people being made into costumes you can chose to “identify” into. No one fucking choses to be born into an oppressed group. Cultural appropriation is racist. Black face is racist. Yellow face(what that disgusting white guy did with all his $$) is RACIST. He is offending me and I’m not even asian(also notice I’m not the only person who thinks he’s gross ty)
You don’t see an issue? Great, I literally do not care. I take great offense when I see people make a mockery of a culture, religion, sexual orientation, race, or sex.
I guess they were just trying to ~express~ themselves too right?
Women who’ve wanted to be perceived as powerful have long found it more efficient to identify with men than to try and elevate the entire female sex to their level.
I know it’s really hard guys, because of your socialization you were never really told “no”- it’s a hard concept to understand that something just isn’t FOR you. So here I am to guide you on your journey of overcoming the struggle of accepting “NO”.
1. Feminism is by and for women, we want liberation of all women from male violence.
2. Because you(men) are in the oppressor class, you cannot lead, define, or argue with the struggle AGAINST yourselves.
3. Learn how to take a support role for once, and realize it’s not about you.
