Obligatory Tumblr Account

From here on in, I'm referring to womyn who were CAMAB as simply womyn, and those who were CAFAB and 'identify' as female as ciswomen. I do this in the interests of cultural feminism, and so that ciswomen can know what it's like for a tenth of a second to have a womon say, "you are not my sister. You did not go through what I went through and never will understand." Girlhood is significant, and is forever tainted by cissexually-constructed wannabes.

Andreja Pejic comes out as trans

Australian model Andreja – formerly [known as] Andrej – Pejic, 22, went public about her decision to have sex reassignment surgery on Wednesday. Having been quite the gender bender, this might not come as a big surprise to those following her career.

A video at Huffington Post, quotes Andreja as saying: “Androgyny became a way of expressing my femininity without having to explain myself to people too much. […] I wasn’t ready to talk about it before in a public way because I was scared that I would not be understood.”

PS: This is what often happens in a deeply cissexist society, folks.

PPS: OP, use the damn style guide. Use known as, if you absolutely feel you must use the flag-of-convenience that was a trans person’s assigned name.

Suspected for 200 murders, at one point was earning $1 000 000 a week, gave birth to 4 children, ran her cocaine business for 19 years while in jail, and whose drug net worth is estimated at around $500 million. Come on feminists, get behind Griselda Blanco, she did the job better than any of the guys could

La Madrinaaaaa

ok seriously guys did we not just have this same discussion about the mexican cartel lady like can we PLEASE get it together and stop trying to make mass murders into feminist icons????

Yeah wow, there are much better female figures to aspire than people like this, what about JK Rowling, Margaret Thatcher etc.

So you don’t want us to talk about this drug kingpin, you’d rather have us talk about Margaret Thatcher, who completely descimated the British working class, passed don’t-say-queer legislation, and violently suppressed an ethnic minority in Northern Ireland?
Sounds like a typical cisfeminist solution.

sure was cold last night. good thing we had trash to burn for warmth

While I disapprove of book burning in general, in this case…

This is a book by Christina Hoff Sommers, a woman who has been involved in feminism and feminist academia her entire life. She is a feminist. This book talks about the bias against boys in school (for example: boys are more likely to drop out and greatly lag when it comes to literacy).

Also the minute you start to support book burning, congratulations, you are now an oppressive and authoritarian group.

Do you ever think, like putting aside all the Tumblr bullshit and the obsession with gender politics on this website alone, do you ever just look at people like this and feel confused about how they live their life.

Like this person is so obsessed in whatever ignorant mindset they hold that they saw this book and immediately set in motion a series of events for their entire day where they would buy this book and ensure their camera is charged. They would then rip it up, while taking photos and light it on fire and put it into a fire smiling and put it on the internet. They planned out this entire thing.

This isn’t Mein Kampf.

This isn’t some controversial book calling for the extermination of a gender or euthanasia. 

It’s literally some mild critique by a feminist about how dodgy policies from over-zealous feminism can end up harming people rather than helping.

This person is so wrapped up in whatever self-righteousness they possess and so desperate for the approval of whatever circle they’re in on Tumblr that they decided they would burn this book, probably without reading it, and take pictures to show off that they’re so stupid and insecure about their own views that they’d sooner burn anything that questions them.

I dunno about you but I’m really just confused about how you could plan out these actions over the course of a day and not sit and think to yourself “wow I’m behaving in a completely irrational manner”. 

reblogging again for brendan’s smack down

Also, their plan backfired. They bought the fucking book and gave money to the author. What you do with it afterward doesn’t matter to Sommers; you bought it and so supported her. Good job on that, random idiotic Tumblr users!

There’s a reason I use the term cisfeminist: To distinguish Christina Hoff Sommers and Erin Pizzey and Julia Serano from this gaggle of privilege-drunk cluebags. I imagine OP’s copy of Raymond is unsinged.

Y’all have ascended to another realm of ain’t shit

HAAAAA

tahhhh we win even when we lose.

Actually, when I was about 8, I used to write on the skin of my arm with my fingernail all the time… you would have to be exceptionally pale for that not to work.
UPDATE: Tried doing it just now… apparently my arm is not covered in dead skin just waiting to be exfoliated. This trick doesn’t work anymore, though my arm is fairly bronze, it being July and me being lazy with the suntan lotion because I can only be afraid of dying of so many things.

i love the Women Against Feminism that are like “I dont need feminism because i can admit i need my husband to open a jar for me and thats ok!” cause listen 1. get a towel 2. get the towel damp 3. put it on the lid and twist. BAM now men are completely useless. you, too, can open a jar. time to get a divorce

I want to know if I’m the only one.

fucking shit

Definitely. 

sooooo many times.

The amount of notes makes me sad

Wow the number makes me sad.

actually relatively low considering

“Useless” “failure” “worthless” “no use” I’d say I’m a
little more than offended.

My dad said he’d rather I have terminal cancer than be trans, and my mom said she didn’t want me ‘confusing’ my half-sister.
