if u are a cis girl, here are some things not to say to trans girls or transfeminine ppl
- you do makeup better than I do!
- you have better legs than I do!
- you’re prettier than I am!
these compliments are just a way the disguise your shock at the femininity of “fake” women, compared to you, a “real” woman. stop.
*puts thumb between teeth* its a metaphor, you see. you have the power to quarrel, but can choose not to
don’t romanticize basic rights
it’s not attractive that a man is a feminist
it’s not sexy that a man finally realizes the prejudice against women and how very oppressed women are
it’s common sense
this here goes out to all the girls who do it for their parents
for the girls who want to be paid so they can help out their siblings
for the girls who have been grown women since they were 12 to support everyone else around them, emotionally or otherwise
this one goes out to you, and your intolerance for men who will not respect you enough.
keep doing it for those that actually love you unconditionally, not for those who maybe might.
Feminism INCLUDES intersectionality. If you purposefully exclude colored women, disabled women, trans women, muslim women, poor women, and queer women, you are NOT a feminist. If you choose to ignore the intersectionalities that shape a womans life such as her race, gender identity, sexuality, and class, you are NOT a feminist. If your feminist agenda ONLY touches upon western rape culture and sex positivity, you are NOT a feminist.
