“There’s a high you get from being the NEW! HOT! SEXY! COOL! feminist, which we need to admit to. We also need a plan for the next phase.”

““If there’s any dramatic tension, it’s between the subject’s warring notions of herself”
—Elizabeth Spiers
on Marie Calloway’s What Purpose Did I Serve in Your Life?”

- Yeah who would want to read that? A person with internal conflict? That’s not dramatic or interesting. Perhaps another lady will fill us in on how these are not the appropriate conflicts, which ought to be Struggles with Watching Game of Thrones As A Feminist, My Feelings About Men’s Feelings, or Opinions on Katy Perry or something.

Son of Republican Congressman Joe Heck. What is amazing is that his dad apologized for this (and the n-word, and other hatefulness, etc., but the posts are still up!)

Getting Prescriptive.

Really not into “feminism” or “activism” that is just  self-aggrandizing confrontation.

Tip: if the takeaway is your name, you’re doing it wrong.

Tip: If you ignore valid criticism to focus on and mock “haters” you’re doing it wrong.

Tip: If you like to coin phrases like “slut shaming” and “rape culture”and then spend half your time explaining them to people as a a way to institutionalize and situate yourself for funding, while ignoring stuff like “racism” and “racism within feminism” and “class issues within feminism,” you’re really doing it wrong.

Tip: If you have a feminist ebook club and have not published one lady of color, you are doing it wrong.

blackamazon:

bad-dominicana:

sometimes commentary on the male gaze is just catering to the male gaze. irony.
like, accusing women baring legs, cleavage or midriff of doing it for the male gaze, as if they couldnt do it coz they fuckin feel like it.
or looking at art or photos of women in poses that accentuate their curves and femininity and calling it for the male gaze, as if men are the only ones who like lookin at ass and titties and girls in cute or sexy stances. as if men are the only ones who could possibly be sexually attracted to women.
way to center every damn thing around males while claiming youre against it.

If you are going to dramatically insist that others check their “factual grounding,” please note the difference between a spree killing and a mass killing, which you had wrong.
