I can’t for the life of me understand why any minority, knowing how often minorities are discriminated against, would oppose same-sex marriage. 

I can’t for the life of me figure out how people keep pretending there are no Black LGBT folks while rushing to blame black people for legislation that they didn’t fund, write, or even all vote for in the first place. Not to mention if we’re going to talk about discrimination? Let’s talk about racism in LGBT commmunities. Ooh wait, no one wants to do that hunh?

This, another representation of white queerdom. Let’s not forget that black queers and other queers of color exist too. Let’s not forget that transfolk of color exist too. These groups are the most at risk and the most underrepresented in campaigns for LGBT rights and equality. Let’s just forget about intersectionality.
All I smell from this post are white queers using their privilege as white folks.

Welp…

I need feminism, because…

I don’t deserve to feel like less of a feminist when I say that I am pro-life. This post isn’t meant to argue about when human life begins, but is about respecting other feminists. Just like how other women shouldn’t assume that girls who wear makeup only do so under the pressures of patriarchal society, they shouldn’t tell me that I’m a controlling bitch who couldn’t possibly understand the feminist movement.

Maybe I can’t speak for all those who take up the whole pro-life stance on abortion, but I can tell you that the reason I’m pro-life is because I believe life starts at conception, not because I want to control other women.

The fuck is this shit Who Needs Feminist Blog. The fuck is this shit. I cannot believe you posted this shit and didn’t respond to the fuckery. What the everloving hell.

Here’s the thing:

“Pro-life feminist” is an oxymoron.

A “pro-life” feminist is like a feminist against woman suffrage.

A “pro-life” feminist is like a motherfucking unicorn. It doesn’t. fucking. exist. 

A “pro-life” feminist is the epitome of what belongs on this blog, shutting the fuck up. 

People who think you can simultaneously be for the manipulation, subjugation, dehumanization, and devaluation of -primarily*- women have no grasp of what it means to be a feminist. They failed 101. They do not pass go, they do not collect $200. 

So yeah, the person who submitted this does need feminism, but more importantly they need to learn what it’s motherfucking about. They need to go back to basic and figure out that their belief that life begins at conception is not and never will be more important than the feminist belief that women’s* lives are to be wholly determined by their own fully-realized selves. 

So yeah, Who Needs Feminism Blog and whoever the fuck submitted that in the first place:

YOU LOSE. 

GOOD DAY, SIR.

the lolliest part is that whoneedsfeminism is run by a dude. lol.

People are so fucking stupid it burns my eyes. So OP needs feminism to remove the body autonomy of uterus bearers?? There is no such a thing as ‘pro-life’!!!!!! You are either pro or anti-choice!!

Quick civics lesson:

dionthesocialist:

Freedom of speech is: the government will never (lol) create a law impugning your right to say whatever you want as long as it doesn’t create an immediate risk of harm for others.

Freedom of speech is not: you can say whatever you want and no one is allowed to get offended or call you out for being a jackass.

I’m always confused when people don’t get this. It’s like, middle school government 101

This is probably the most important post I EVER MADE.

The Senate recently passed the National Defense Authorization Act, a law that will give the military the power to arrest citizens (for life) without trial if they are deemed suspicious or ‘anti-government’ and interrogate, torture and assassinate them!

This bill is the biggest threat to our civil liberties and freedom and now we have learned that the Obama administrative ORDERED THE BILL.

The National Defense Authorization Act violates our 1st, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th amendments in the Bill of Rights. How can this bill allowed to have been passed by a 97-3 vote in the Senate and not have raised a red flag in the media?!

Don’t be blinded by our President’s promises and our media censorship. THIS IS HAPPENING AND WE ARE CLOSE TO LOOSING EVERYTHING AMERICANS STAND FOR. We will soon be the generation that let the government become dictators and we were too side tracked with celebrity news to realize how bad things are. PLEASE REBLOG, THIS IS URGENT AND OUR RIGHTS ARE AT RISK. REFORM IS NOT ENOUGH, WE NEED A REVOLUTION.

So Obama ordered it?? :O

WTF!!!

Sadly, some really think it is theirs to give. Fortunately, most men aren’t like this.

First they came for the NATIVE AMERICANS, and I did not speak out —
Because I was not a NATIVE AMERICAN.

Then they came for the AFRICANS, and I did not speak out —
Because I was not a AFRICAN.

Then they came for the ASIANS, and I did not speak out —
Because I was not a ASIAN.

Then they came for the HOMOSEXUALS, and I did not speak out —
Because I was not a HOMOSEXUAL.

Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me.

“Women were spit upon, slapped in the face, tripped up, pelted with burning cigar stubs, and insulted by jeers and obscene language too vile to print or repeat.”

This photo is from the Woman Suffrage Procession, Washington, DC, 1913.
So pissed off that history classes teach people that men gave women the right to vote with the 19th Amendment (after it was passed not all women could even vote). Women fought tooth and nail to get the right to vote in the suffrage movement but then after that as well because many women couldn’t vote after it was passed because of racism and classism. No one gave the women the right to vote, they took it. 

Totally agree.
