demonize poor women for wanting to terminate pregnancy they can’t afford
demonize poor women for applying for government assistance to raise the child they didn’t want because they couldn’t afford it by referring to them as “welfare queens”

Funny how it’s always poc that are asked to be the bigger person and not the racists. Always.

If you’re trying to be dramatic and quote someone out of context for your emotionally manipulative, bullshit propaganda, you should probably make sure they share the same views as you.

The world is letting fascist Israel continue its genocide of Palestinians so they’re not even hiding it any more. There’s no need to because instead of facing consequences for it they are rewarded with extra military aid from the US.
Here’s a pdf version of the article which has since been taken down.

Do you know why this word exists?
Drapetomania is the fictitious disease that the Southern slave doctor Samuel A. Cartwright created to categorize the tendency for slaves to run away as a mental illness to be cured. Because white people wholeheartedly believed that enslaving us was a service to us ( saving us from our brutish, lascivious, and lazy ways) and any right minded individual could see that..The prescribed
punishmenttreatment for drapetomania was torture and hard labor.
Do not put this on your artsy blogs.
Do not erase the deplorable history behind it.
This is a truly heinous word. Whoever originally posted this was an ignorant fuck. And this definition is a crock of shit.
An overwhelming urge to run away.
Go fuck yourself.

- i can recognize white people as a whole have systemically oppressed POC in america, which is where i live
- most people when they make white people jokes only mean the shitty white people and i am not a shitty white person
- im not a pissbaby
my white friends that have reblogged this give me life

I think that’s internalized misogyny and not the same thing.
The people who say they’re “not like other girls” will also say “girls are too catty” and say they only hang out with guys. They are overly eager to please men and the route they have chosen to do that is by being into sports, playing video games, not dressing feminine and saying very sexist things against women and being “one of the guys.” Young girls involved in that frame of thought don’t normally call themselves feminists.
That’s different than what I’ve been talking about which is the tendency of liberal feminism to pretend that following patriarchal conventions makes one as stigmatized as eschewing them.
But like, not to your response, but to the ask itself - the thing is that you don’t exist in a vacuum. I like many things that just so happen to be supported by patriarchy, and I can’t pretend that I only like them due to mere coincidence. It’s not a feminist act to enjoy things. Feeling personally empowered by things that women are strongly encouraged to enjoy is not feminist and doesn’t help women.
"Feeling personally empowered by things that women are strongly encouraged to enjoy is not feminist and doesn’t help women."
!!! THIS. At some point, in a misguided effort to make feminism less scary and more palatable, it became cool to pretend like every individual choice a woman makes, regardless of context, is a feminist act if it makes her feel good, which is why we’re now at the point where someone could be like, “my feminist act today was drinking 2 liters of water” and that would go completely unchallenged by a ton of people because “how dare you shame her, she’s a woman and she has to navigate oppressive systems on a daily basis and if drinking water makes her feel good than it’s obviously feminist.” Because “choice feminism” is easier to swallow than suggesting that taking the label feminist has some responsibility and action attached to it. People are way too quick to label irrelevant actions feminist or anti-feminist because they lack a meaningful understanding of what those words mean.

If you have to wait until you lose someone to realize how much they matter to you
That’s a problem
Take time to appreciate the people who matter when you have them
Life is too short to be so oblivious
