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.

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.

ATTN: Feminists- this little gem of hard hitting journalism is brought to you by Cosmo. Let’s debate your foof-jazzling!

Is Cosmo even still printing? GO AWAY ALREADY.

I love how this five year old story from British Cosmo is such a handy soapbox for people. Who cares?

Noting that I had this on my office door, mostly because of STICKING CRYSTALS ON YOUR FOOF and BARE LANDSCAPE OF SMOOTH SOFTNESS, my boss walked by, then came back and stuck her head in and said “I think the answer to this question is yes.”
