I just want to be a lazy princess all day every day.

The following links are for reference as to why porn and BDSM are harmful. This is why you cannot be a feminist if you support either.  I suggest you educate yourself with these if any part of you is fond of porn or BDSM. Obviously, a massive trigger warning goes for all of them.

Porn:

BDSM:

If you can digest these resources and links, and still “disagree,” you may want to seek therapy because you’re a truly terrifying person.

Speaking as somebody who once suffered extreme attachment issues for over a decade, it is absolutely emotionally abusive to be co-dependent on somebody. You’re an emotional abuser if you make it known you grow anxious and/or depressed without having your partner around. Yes, your plight is sympathetic and difficult, but dragging somebody down with you is not acceptable. It is emotionally draining and stressful when you know your partner can’t maintain a semblance of stability and dependence without your presence. Don’t be an emotional vampire seeking the finite energy of your partner because your own isn’t enough. Please.

[Zionism] is a racist ideology grounded in the privileging of one ethno-religious group over all others. When a state views a population — its dispossessed, disenfranchised and occupied indigenous population — as a ”demographic threat,” that view is fundamentally both racist and gendered.

Racist population control relies specifically on violence against women. So it is not surprising that Mordechai Kedar, an Israeli military intelligence officer turned academic, would matter-of-factly suggest this week that “raping the wives and mothers of Palestinian combatants” would deter attacks by Hamas militants.

Similarly, Israeli lawmaker Ayelet Shaked did not attempt to present the murder of Palestinian children and their mothers as unfortunate, disproportionate “collateral damage” — she openly called for it by asserting that Palestinian women must be killed too, because they give birth to “little snakes.”

This comment reflects an Israeli infrastructure designed to sustain high rates of miscarriages by blocking basic resources such as water and medical supplies, forcing women in labor to wait at military checkpoints on their way to a hospital, and generally creating inhumane and unlivable conditions for Palestinians.

This latest murderous attack on Palestinians in the Gaza Strip has not only taken the lives of hundreds of Palestinians, but it has also increased miscarriages, pre-term labor and stillbirths.

Ethiopian-Israeli women, most of them Jewish, have also been subject to mandatory contraceptive injections without their consent.

Ending Zionism is a feminist and a reproductive justice issue.

extremeirrelevancy:

Don’t criticize anything patriarchy expects of every woman everywhere, because some woman somewhere might like it, and avoiding critical analysis that might make her upset supersedes any discussion about how society coerces nearly every female choice in order to control women’s lives.

Great feminism. Gold star. See no problems here.

“No nation can slave a race of people for hundreds of years, set them free bedraggled and penniless, pit them, without assistance in a hostile environment, against privileged victimizers, and then reasonably expect the gap between the heirs of the groups to narrow. Lines, begun parallel and left alone, can never touch.”

pepper-soup:

And that is why feminism needs to focus less on media representation and more on social/economic policies that damages women and children because you end up feminists who are more outraged about a woman whose cellulite is being mocked but not outraged about that same woman supporting a destructive regime that is literally kills women and children.
