it isn’t just an “idea”, that’s how shit works. men are granted more social capital and power by our society, that’s literally what gender is about. gender exists to exploit people who are classed as women for the benefit of those classed as men. the only way for gender to not be exploitative and oppressive is for it to be destroyed
also my femininity doesn’t make me who i am, who i am makes me feminine. i choose to align myself with womanhood and the feminine for a lot of reasons, one of which being that i’m uncomfortable remaining in a position which gives me power over women
i love liberals saying that we should abandon materialism and fight ideas, it makes my dick extremely hard
okay i’m having some trouble organizing my thoughts on this but basically: i advocate for the end of gender as a system. i believe the best way to do that is to destroy masculinity and manhood because manhood is the position within gender that is granted more social power. if we destroy masculinity and gender along with it, femininity will also be destroyed b/c gender will have been eradicated
woman is an exploited class under patriarchy. man is an exploiter class. the society we are struggling for would have people whose physicalities we might think of as “male” or “female”, along with others we wouldn’t have ways of talking about. there would almost certainly be people who would have things about them redolent of men and women in the Old World - a tenderness of voice, a scrutinizing eye, a tendency to spread one’s legs on public transit. but they would no longer have the weight of history pressing against them.
this post-sex/gender society is the end product of a struggle by the exploited against their exploitation. this struggle takes place against the backdrop of heteropatriarchy, and its participants exist in heteropatriarchy.
the oppressor class has nothing to offer this struggle; the oppressed class lives it and in a sense cannot escape it.
i am a woman because women not existing is not yet a possibility. if i should be a man under the same logic, i would be part of why it was not yet a possibility. it could only be hypocritical to yearn for a world without men but participate in the construction of male power with my words and actions, in a way it cannot really be called hypocritical to yearn for a world without women
Joking about marginalized groups doesn’t satirize their oppression. It perpetuates it. Stop.
Anyone else genuinely curious as to what a sea witch would take from them if they had to make a deal with one, since they take your best quality?
a post where I explain with images how foxes are the best thing ever, and how if you disagree you are obviously wrong
I’m totally the fox with his head in the ground.
"men are men" "not all men!"

PINK APPRECIATION POST.
These are a few of my favorite pictures of her. #dreamgirl
Okay - just from a semiotics/art appreciation standpoint -
Do you notice that in her images where she is topless, she is not sexualized in the way that scantily clad women often are in photography? She looks aggressive, or like she’s just standing around doing whatever. She does NOT look submissive or “come hither”. The expression in one of these is a “fuck you” expression and sometimes the expression is playful - but aggressively so.
She is posed the way that half-naked men are posed. NOT half-naked women.
