1. I love women,” coming from a man, almost always means “I love when women please me,” “I love to imagine fucking women,” “I love to jack off to women’s pornified bodies,” “I love women who don’t challenge me in a way that makes me uncomfortable,” or “I love the idea of women.

    Meghan Murphy, “'Skinny' or 'curvy,' our bodies are not our own: Why the 'No More Skinny' campaign doesn't help" (via feministcurrent)

    This whole article is short and very good. Here’s another quote from it:

    But while men pat themselves on the backs for being so brave and bold as to like “real women” or “women with curves,” instead of simply the very thin, model-like ones, women are still left to cope with the depressing reality that their bodies are of little worth unless objectified.”

    i think it’s so neat that everyone develops their own unique handwriting even though we’re all taught to write our letters the same way really it’s so cool

    Growing up I took in a lot of grief for my gender. I was abused for it, ridiculed for it, and socially outcasted for it. I have been taught that every person I meet is my potential rapist or murderer because of my gender. I have been blackmailed, harassed, assaulted, abused, homeless, and raped because of my gender. I have been told I can’t truly be my gender without somehow fitting into misogynistic gender roles - and for the validation I tried to meet these concepts of hyper femininity for the sake of acceptance; not realizing that even cis women can not meet all these concepts themselves. I’ve been told never to go to smaller, public places (i.e. bars) because I would be attacked, drugged, raped or murdered. I’ve been told never to go out without friends because women like me get abducted and murdered simply for existing. I’ve been told not to be out late because women like me will be confused for prostitutes and will be arrested and fucked for life. I can not even use public bathrooms because death or rape is on the other side of that door.

    Sorry, I’m not the big bad male you want me to be; I was socialized as a woman - a trans woman.

    be critical of Anita Sarkeesian all you want but if the fact that she had to cancel a speech at a college because a student threatened a mass shooting isn’t a huge red flag to you about how very much alive misogyny is then you need to get the fuck out of my face

~*Please  Help  Homeless  Trans  Girl*~
Hey y’all! If you’re visiting this page, then you probably know me personally, and if you don’t, then let me introduce myself. My name is Justine Matlock, and I am a 22 year old trans woman from Charlotte, North Carolina. I’m in the process of my medical transition, and in order to achieve this, under the shadow of crippling student debt, I was hoping if anyone wouldn’t mind extending a hand. :)As of Otober 2014, I have also been rendered without a permanent address, a vehicle of my own and health insurance- one could call this couch surfing, or homelessness. But what it means for me, in reality, is incredible instability, and a huge imposition on my wallet and those willing to provide me with temporary shelter. I need to find an apartment; not to mention enough money to cover the $65/hr electrolysis, or the roughly 85$ I’ll be spending every month on hormones. 
In the mean time I will find work, but until then, any and all donations would greatly relieve me of stress. Immense gratitude is offered to anyone who would kindly help me in these times.So that’s my life! Thanks for visiting my page; if you’d like to get in contact with me, there are several avenues at the end of this blurb!Thanks so much; and I hope to hear from you!!

    so who’s gonna tell all the white people that are against immigration how they got to America

    We’re fully aware of how we got here. Most people here are just against illegal and mass immigration, not all immigration.

    who’s gonna tell this person
