I am an angry female dog

I love being butterz (ugly) on the outside. Tryin to work on being less ugly on the inside as a 23 y/o white (half english, half Éireannach [Irish]) queer cis woman, a graduate with some middle-class privileges. Squatter no more, shed-dweller & sofa-surfer n sadly soon-to-be renter as I ran out of spoons for squatting for now. I am trying to be less ugly as an oppressor and try to learn about/dismantle oppression in this world of multi-layered, intersecting oppressions (the kyriarchy) or at least not obstruct resistance struggles with my privilege & ignorance. It's not always clear what the best way to do the least harm is, and it ain't always clear what the best forms of resistance and recovery are. A lot of great blogs on tumblr help make stuff clearer! Also pics of amazing aesthetics and cute animals and plants.

just bc someone has low self esteem or has depression doesnt mean theyre not fucking disgusting and manipulative and i keep having to learn this lesson over and over

If someone uses their mental illnesses as an excuse to hurt you without apologizing you get the fuck out of there. My abuser would use it as an excuse and make me feel guilty for my hurt feelings because it wasn’t his fault he was cruel to me.

THIS! THIS! Particularly with how I’ve experienced and heard about how men relate to their non-man partners.

bonebleach:

if you seriously cannot tell the different between “i hate the group that i am oppressing” and “i hate the group that is oppressing me” you need to sit down and shut up

"i hate trans people" is not the same as "i hate cis people"

"i hate a group of people so i’m going to kill, rape, judge, and oppress them" is not the same as "wow, i hate the group that continues to kill, rape, judge, and oppress me and people like me"

Some Handy Examples of How Non-Sex Working Feminists Can Aid in Critiquing the Sex Industry

  • Your women's studies prof: Class, do you think pornography enables male entitlement?
  • You: Well, according to this essay I read by someone who does porn, it doesn't make a lot of sense to just critique it as a piece of media + not a site + product of highly stigmatized labor. So, yes, it does, but that may largely be beside the point of where and how male violence occurs in relation to pornography.
  • That lady at your local NOW chapter: It is WRONG for men to purchase sex, therefore we must make it illegal.
  • You: I agree that capitalist conditions create coercive and abusive situations for those in the sex industry, but carceral solutions don't address that underlying issue.
  • Your younger sister: *points at a Maxim magazine cover* Isn't it wrong that there are all these sexualized pictures of women everywhere?
  • You: It's wrong that the male gaze is all-pervasive and our idea of the ideal woman is profoundly racist, sizeist, ableist, and cissexist. It's also wrong that these images exist within the context of a violent patriarchal culture, but the images themselves are not wrong.
  • Some rando in your ask box: How do we end the abuse of people in the sex industries?
  • You: Let me link you to this blog by sex workers advocating for workers' rights.
  • Your boyfriend: Why is there so much bad sex in porn?
  • You: Let me show you this essay on porn by a sex worker.
  • Your girlfriend: Stripping is exploitative.
  • You: Let me show you this academic article written by a stripper.
  • Your aunt: Dominatrices probably think they're empowered but really--
  • You: Here's a thing written by a sex worker.
  • Your grandpa: Prostitution--
  • You: Here's a thing written by a sex worker.
  • Your cat:
  • You: Good point, let me read you this issue of Prose & Lore out loud.
  • You: *signal boosts our words + shows up at rallies + emails legislators + gives orgs like Abeni + Sex Workers Project all your damn money*

Reporters confirm that police & advisors concealed the identity of Darren Wilson until he could delete all social media & move out of state.

Wow though. Darren Wilson, Ferguson’s PD and the rest of his and their supporters are an extra special breed of scumbag. What incriminating shit did he have online that needed to be swept under the rug so quickly?

I guarantee you there was some racist shit on his facebook

Oh, 100%.
