just letting all the feminists know that despite the “no shaving” activism against the patriarchy, that black feminists might be uncomfortable with it because we are always compared to apes or gorillas and other slurs that deem us “less than human”!!! which makes it easier to be on the receiving end of violence, murder etc!!! and not shaving could potentially trigger that hate we get, this is mainly for white feminists to think about so just keep that in mind ok this is just a friendly reminder since i dont really see this topic come up, gotta help the sisters feel safe and not ~bad~ women for shaving bcuz its complicated u feel me uvu
Thank you for pointing this out. We’re all just doing what we have to do to survive.
I want to do things with my life but I also want to bury myself in a forest and let the moss grow over me so where does that leave us
i would much rather be the “obnoxious feminist girl” than be complicit in my own dehumanization, thanks
Men are allowed to think body hair is unattractive
Women are allowed to think body hair is unattractive
Men and women are not allowed to tell other people how they should groom themselves just because of what they find personally attractive
psa: feminazi is a fucking disgusting term that compares fighting for women’s rights to genocide.
it was coined by rush limbaugh (that alone should be enough to make you stay far far away from it)
it is a racist term, and it is disrespectful to marginalized groups who suffered in nazi germany (so jews, rroma, lgbt folks, people with disabilities, etc.)
do not use it.
if you disagree with feminists: do not use it
if you are a feminist: do not reclaim it
You know why women often say “nothing’s wrong” when something is definitely bothering them
It’s because men have been belittling, minimizing and mocking our emotions forever
And we are socialized to be as passive and undemanding and selfless as possible, and not to run any risk of bothering or angering a man lest he abandon or hurt us
It’s not passive aggression, it is fear
oh my god
