Anaconda, Bad, and Feminism: Early Feminists: Oh hey, we see that you can vote. We would like to vote also. I mean, since most of those laws effect us too and all Me YOU JUST WANT SUPERIORITY OVER MEN! Mid-century Feminists: Hey, that whole thing about how you can have careers and earn a living wage outside the home? Yes that sounds nice, we'd 1ike the option to do that as well. Men: YOU WANT A MATRIARCHY, THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT! Late 20th century Feminists: Hey we would like to make our own choices about ou reproductive health, just like you've always had. Men YOU ARE TRYING TO TAKE MEN'S RIGHTS AWAY! Modern-day feminists: Hey, if you could you stop sexually assaulting/harassing us and then blaming us for it, that'd be pretty great. Men: THIS IS MISANDRY, MISANDRY I SAY! FEMINISTS HAVE GONE TOO FAR! Feminists: Um Men: THE END OF MEN IS NIGH MALE OPPRESSION IS REAL! THE MATRIARCHAL AGE IS UPON US! Repost from @galaxyfeminism · and yes obviously *not all men* are like this, this is talking about those who are & how the feminist movement has continuously been met with opposition and hate. That's why it is frustrating when people now say "I support early feminist movements but I hate what feminism is now." That means "when it was explicitly stated in the law that women had fewer rights, that was bad, but now that women can vote and own land they just need to stop complaining about other sexist things because some women in other countries can't even vote!!!1!" Saying you have gender equality because women in your country have more rights than women in other countries is like saying you did well on the test because you got a 50% but some people got a 30% so it's okay. Strive for 100%. Let's hold ourselves to a higher standard than defining equality as "it's not explicitly stated that you don't have certain rights (*except in certain cases where local laws do restrict access to birth control-bodily autonomy or try to ban trans people from bathrooms or try to restrict rights of LGTBQ+ people)." Equality under the law doesn't necessarily result in actual equal treatment, whether you're looking at discrimination based on race, religion, gender, class, sexuality, etc. This is especially noticeable regarding race and the treatment of black people in the US, as when slavery became illegal the prison system became an institution that essentially legalized slavery (if you are not familiar with this, watch "13th" or Google "why the us prison system is legalized slavery"). And just because something is legal doesn't mean it's ethical, let's not pretend the government is the epitome of morality 🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃

Anna, Bad, and Come Over: pervocracy Well, this is a weird twist in the "trans military ban" story Trump never actually discussed anything with the Department of Defense or issued any kind of formal order. He just impulse- tweeted that trans people were banned. So for the moment, there's no actual policy change and trans people are still allowed, with trans healthcare still covered by military plans. I don't know if this situation will last for long, but it's a reminder of just how incompetent and unprofessional our would-be dictator is. He declared a major and extremely unpopular military policy change on Twitter, with no planning or consultation with the DoD at all, lied about discussing it with generals, and then he never actually put in the order. Hng I'm not gonna do a shouty rant-y caption about this again because it just puts me in a bad mood. But I have a wonderful story to tell instead. lgbtteensukstorytime So, yesterday (or the day before - I can't remember), I went to this café on the seafront and I ordered a salted caramel ice cream. THEn, this really hot waiter came over and I started blushing and he was super nice but that's not the bad part. TODAY, I went to another restaurant in Trevaskis and there was this bloody friggin waiter and he was like whEw DAMN he was just wHEW he was v good v good indeed. And he was one of the TWO male waiters out of the fifteen or so that worked there and he just haPPENED TO COME OVER TO OUR TABLE AND WAITER US which was embarrassing because I got flustered and started blushing again because y'know that's the sort of humiliating person I am. thEN for some reason I decided it would be a gLORioUS idea to take a couple of pictures of him when he wasn't looking but oH WELL he was LooKinG™ direcTLY at mE and then I just died and I never want to go to Cornwall again this is a pROBLem, people -Chance 🌸 - Credit for post goes to good ol' Anna

Being Alone, Beautiful, and Life: FOR OF CAN YoU PLEASE LEAVE ME ALONE By @florencegivenart · there is a huge difference between a compliment and language that harasses & objectifies someone. Anti-feminists like to act like this line is soOooOo confusing when it's not. There is a clear difference between your partner saying"hey beautiful" and you walking down the street trying to live your life and getting "hey beautiful" shouted - creepily murmured at you by a stranger. The difference between a compliment and harassment has to do with a lot of things, including: Consent, Space, Tone, Relationship, Environment, Context, etc. If you want to pay someone a compliment but arent sure if it's appropriate... Then it's probably best to not say it, because it's better to withhold one comment than make someone feel violated-uncomfortable. The feeling of living your life and getting objectified by random people is very uncomfortable and hard to put into words...But some that come to mind are invasive, feeling like you're just a walking sex object-not an actual human, feeling humiliated & devalued, feeling small & defenseless. ALSO for the derailers: "it doesn't make ME uncomfortable though" ok that is great but it makes other people uncomfortable. "Shouldn't you focus on other issues than cat calling" lucky enough my brain can think about more than one issue at a time and talking about catcalling doesn't mean I am any less committed to ending rape, acid attacks, FGM, etc. (Also as many of you know, these issues are all connected anyway). "women can't take compliments anymore" if that is your takeaway plz reread this post 🙂🙂🙂🙂 "you're restricting my free speech!!!" if you're upset because I'm telling you not to harass people then you probably should reevaluate your priorities in life. 🕊
