and what’s more—all those fucking feminists at Elite University that told me that I was “ridiculous” and “out there” for asking why we weren’t organizing in shelters, welfare offices, churches, English as a second language classes, etc—because, see, recruitment is so much easier and makes so much more sense on college campuses and it’s so *natural* and it’s so *powerful* and we need to get all the young white college women to call themselves feminists and they actually *understand* why feminism is important—

y’all can bite my big old flaccid hairy vagina.

right after you admit to me that the only reason any of this is even happening is BECAUSE *f*eminism decided the benefits of segregation were more impressive than “women’s lives.”

i.e. *F*eminism is a classist, racist, asshole that has an aversion to talking to people who refuse to masturbate it’s intellectual hard on.

i.e. the “war on women” is aided and abetted on many levels by *F*eminism itself.

and that’s why all their stuff (like slutwalk) folds after a couple of months.

did i make that bold enough??? I DON’T THINK I DID.

"as a poor person who has had to use planned parenthood for multiple reasons—i need these bitches to…"

“as a poor person who has had to use planned parenthood for multiple reasons—i need these bitches to be much more fucking serious about this shit. as in, outraged here for the long hall ready to fight for years if we must outraged. yes, i recognize that going out for drinks and celebrating vagina can very well lead to marching in the streets licking envelopes for hours and leading feminist sit ins—but as we’ve seen the past few years in femmoland—going out for drinks only very rarely goes much deeper than “EVERYBODY iS INVITED.”

and my bitch ass needs us to go deep. waaaay fucking deep. as in “why are we trying to shut down clinics that provide abortions during the depths of the endless fucking michigan recession we’ve all been sitting in for decades?” deep. as in, “why is the control of “what a woman is” and “what a woman can do” all of a sudden so important for a state that people want to “let die” and that obama has centered as the cornerstone of his “recovery” project?” deep. deep as in, “why do the fucking white christians who have more money than anybody else in the state get to decide what’s best for all the poor ass broke folk who can’t manage to get a fucking break” deep.”

mucho mountains: shut up. fuck. 

Thank you. And before I sound like I’m not glad that we’re talking about this, or that I’m not excited (if mildly conflicted) that Eve Ensler will be performing The Vagina Monologues with Michigan women lawmakers at the Capitol next week, I just want to stress, as many times as I have to, that if we’re going to air our grievances, if we’re going to yell and scream and shout the word “vagina,” if we’re going to make a big event out of empowering ourselves—we have to do something with that empowerment. Very soon it will be time (if it’s not time already) to outline what the fuck we need to do and then fucking do it.

rgr-pop:

All I could ever hope for out of life is for someone to write a song about me with lines like “loss of a good friend” and “yeah later.”

I was saying earlier that writing songs about girls is the emo version of street harassment.

CAT MARNELL GPOY

I’ll just put it out there. I am fucked up. I have been fucking up. They don’t trust me. I have two months of amazing, then I have two months of terrible. I get sober, off pills, then I get depressed because I don’t feel hot and I can’t feel good about myself.

Why did you first go on Adderall?
My dad just sent me the bottles. He thought I was flunking out of school, so that’s what he did. I didn’t tell anyone about it and just took them. It made me who I am now. I was a little more talkative than other people. I could write a bit better. I was a little skinnier and crazy-eyed. I got more attention than other people. It’s like the same term they use to describe narcissistic people, which is “conspicuous existence” and it’s the same thing on speed. You have a conspicuous existence. I have never not been on speed since. If anything, that’s what you are addicted to: you become a little more special than other people. I’ve always been an enhanced version of a human being. Of myself. I’m addicted to that. When I went off of it, you know what happened? I became normal. I looked normal. My ideas were normal.

I always found your battle with thinness something I love in your writing. It’s so real and it makes me feel better about my own battles with it and the knowing side of me that says I shouldn’t obsess over this stuff.
Listen, fat acceptance is not something I am interested in. I understand it’s important for some people but not for me. It’s not an option for me. Yet I wouldn’t have written that juice cleanse thing without the huge backstory, it wasn’t fair.

What do you mean?
I got the zillion-dollar Ritual Cleanse for free. I’m a thin person, naturally. I did not participate in the XOJane real girl belly project. I have never been remotely interested in looking like or being in any way a real girl. I don’t like the real girl thing. I believe in idealization for publications. People want to see aspirational images, read about aspirational lives. I don’t care about acceptance. I don’t want to project anything real. I want people to look at my beauty section and want to look like me, to buy the things I like. I want them to want to smell like me even though they can’t smell me through the computer. That’s the point. It’s beauty, babe! But always remember—I’m a total sicko.
