i think it’s time for feminism to take vampires back

scumblebee:

i mean honestly, i’m way too selfish to spare any monsters to the status quo and twilight is about to fade into irrelevance (and no one needs to hammer in how racist and sexist that series is anymore, like, the horse is dead, stop)

  • “bloodsucking” always used against women for gold digging/other self absorbed reasons for dating/marrying
  • they sleep all day
  • they’re mostly characterized as vain and aloof
  • blood (also, menses)
  • they say feminism is dead, and, well
  • i mean
  • that’s just it, right?

• They’re only considered “good” when they don’t eat

Pants that were designed for you to leave the top button unbuttoned were so important.

TRIGGER WARNING: a revenge poem

travelcoat:


MEN TAKE EVERYTHING
MEN CAN TAKE
EVERYTHING, FETISHIZE
EVERYTHING THEY CAN TAKE, MEN DO
TAKE EVERYTHING

CAN SAY,
“I wanted
to be the beautiful
woman
victim who
cries”
CAN SAY
“I wanted
to explore
the OTHER”
CAN SAY
“Being a victim
has its benefits”
BECAUSE THE OPPRESSED,
THE OTHERS, THE WE,
WE THE VICTIMS HAVE
OUR COMMUNITIES
OF OTHER
VICTIMS


Chorus:
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA AHA HA HA HAHAHAHA HAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHHA
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA AHHHHHH AHHHHAAHHH HAAAH HAAAAHHHHAAA


MEN can like us best
when we are sad
AND DEGRADED
Because our sadness
makes us more “HUMAN”
and “RELATABLE”

MERYL STREEP renders our
sadness “HUMAN”
and”RELATABLE”

which is a sneaky way
to really say
“I DON’T KNOW HOW
TO SEE YOU
AS HUMAN
IN ANY OTHER STATE”
and
“ACTUALLY
YOU’RE STILL
NOT HUMAN”

Men can say
“Women are more
interesting because
they are more
constructed”

“YOU CAN DO MORE
WITH THEIR HAIR
AND MAKE UP
BUT MAYBE
I ONLY
THINK THAT
BECAUSE
I AM A MAN.”

Chorus:
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA AHA HA HA HAHAHAHA HAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHHA
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA AHHHHHH AHHHHAAHHH HAAAH HAAAAHHHHAAA

Jane can’t even cry without feeling sick:
I can’t even cry
without feeling
sick—you take
EVERYTHING

and I am beautiful
and other in my tears

Meanwhile your
mostly white
upper middle class
audience will continue
to kiss your ass

will forever kiss
your ass because
the art world
loves an “edgy”
white man
who vampirizes
the suffering
of Others.

Chorus:
What a Radical Never Before Seen Performance! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA AHA HA HA HAHAHAHA HAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA AHHHHHH AHHHHAAHHH HAAAH HAAAAHHHHAAA AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH


In Which I Shear My Hair
Cut Off My Tits
AND THROW IT ALL ON STAGE:

Valerie Solanas Styled Her Hair
and Wore Lipstick and Makeup
The Day She Shot andy warhol.

Shhhshhshhhear my hair like Vvvvvalerie
and take her gun take her gun
and take her gun take her gun take her gun

Look at My Beautiful Victimhood
My Lovely Expression of COMMUNITY,
it is a fucking bullet in your god
damned side.

It will be a contracted
scar you can profit off of,
Don’t Worry,
I Would Not Leave You Penniless,

I Will Give You MY
Gift of Knowing
How Beautifully Tragic and
Interesting

it is to be a victim

dedicated to Ane Lan: may you contract some new kind of disease, may you shit out every single one of your organs one by one, may there be no cure, only your “tragic” male suffering

She’s no pushover witch.

We’ve been omitting Tabitha from our work, and that needs to stop. She doesn’t have a cat, but she does have an Aunt Minerva and a convertible.

“I’d actually revel and joyfully shout if a grunge band appeared which dressed tastefully (and I don’t mean having their flannel shirts freshly washed, either), had short, nicely groomed hair, and actually departed from the accepted norm in SubPopdom.”

“It pains me to see a once-respected journal of the “punk” underground becoming merely a forum for neo-classic rock. I am, of course, speaking about SubPop oriented music.”
