Something inside me had dropped away, and nothing came in to fill the empty cavern. There was an abnormal lightness to my body, and sounds had a hollow echo to them.

“Let’s stop acting like women who choose to be feminine are somehow colluders, betraying the movement, bamboozled into thinking that they want to be feminine. Let’s stop denying women their own autonomy by telling them that their expressions of femininity are bad and wrong.

Antifemininity is misogynist. What you are saying when you engage in this type of rhetoric is that you think things traditionally associated with women are wrong. Which is misogynist. By telling feminine women that they don’t belong in the feminist movement, you are reinforcing the idea that to be feminine and a woman is wrong, that women who want to be taken seriously need to be more masculine, because most people view gender presentation in binary ways. This rewards the ‘one of the boys’ type rhetoric I encounter all over the place from self-avowed feminists who seem to think that bashing on women is a good way to prove how serious they are when it comes to caring about women and bringing men into the feminist movement.”

Occasionally we alert you when a new “cutest thing ever” comes our way. Here’s my candidate for the latest title holder. According to Wikipedia, the royal antelope grows to only 10-12 inches tall and 9-10 lbs. Their calves are small enough to fit into the average person’s open hand.

my pixels aren’t showing up on my blog and grrrr this is upsetting ಠ_ಠ

my personal posts aren’t nearly as cute 

I'm not a feminist, but....
  • Person A:
    I'm not a feminist, but I do I agree that we should all be equal, regardless of gender. And I think THAT is worth fighting for.

  • Person B:
    I'm not a feminist, but I am pretty sick of getting sexually harassed on the streets. And I think THAT is worth fighting for.

  • Person C:
    I'm not a feminist, but I do think it's shitty that my colleague gets paid less per hour than myself for no reason she, or I, can discern. And I think THAT is worth fighting for.

  • Person D:
    I'm not a feminist, but I think that women should have control over what they do with their bodies. And I think THAT is worth fighting for.

  • Person E:
    I'm not a feminist, but I am getting tired of seeing the same generic woman everywhere telling me I'm not matching up to the proper standard of beauty. It makes me feel bad. And I think THAT is worth fighting.

  • Person F:
    I'm not a feminist, but I hate that my partner was raped and then blamed for it, even accused of lying to get attention. And I think THAT is worth fighting.

  • Person G:
    I'm not a feminist. I'm more of an "equalist" :) And I think THAT is worth fighting for.

  • FEMINIST PERSON:
    WHEN WILL YOU ALL REALISE THAT IT IS FEMINISTS WHO ARE FIGHTING FOR ALL OF THOSE THINGS YOU DEEM WORTH FIGHTING FOR, AND HAVE BEEN ALL ALONG. FEMINISM IS NOT ABOUT BOLSTERING ONE GENDER ABOVE OTHERS. IT IS ABOUT FIGHTING FOR EQUALITY BY IMPROVING THE LIVES OF THE ONES THAT ARE SYSTEMATICALLY FUCKED OVER.

  • If you can see that systematic oppression is a real thing, why can't you see how oppressors intentionally perpetrate false representations of freedom fighters?
