We still love you!

Sorry we’ve gone AWOL… we had a bit of a dry spell the last few months and have been busy with life and school and shit.

But I think I have some new awkward feminist moments brewing in my brain that I need to share with the world soon. Have some new ones of your own you want to share?

Submit your awkward feminist moments here!

Lolololol. Such a wonderful idea. I just made one.

It will be posted shortly!

"‘Feminism is a movement to end sexism, sexist exploitation, and oppression.’ I love this definition… because it so clearly states that the movement is not about being anti-male. It makes it clear that the problem is sexism. And that clarity helps us remember that all of us, female and male, have been socialized from birth on to accept sexist thought and action. As a consequence, females can be just as sexist as men. And while that does not excuse or justify male domination, it does mean that it would be naive and wrong-minded for feminist thinkers to see the movement as simplistically being for women against men. To end patriarchy (another way of naming the institutionalized sexism) we need to be clear that we are all participants in perpetuating sexism until we change our minds and hearts, until we let go of sexist thought and action and replace it with feminist thought and action."

Anonymous said: I'm not sure how to directly respond to this since I'm new to Tumblr, but one of the posts on here was discussing "misandry" and how it is calling a guy a "fag", "pussy" or comparing him to a woman. This is actually not misandry, but homophobia and misogyny. Calling a guy these things devalues women and gay men, rather than hetero men, because it's using women, being feminine, or sexuality as an insult.

I agree, but I also think it devalues men because it assumes that it’s not acceptable for men/male-bodied/trans*/amab folks to have “feminine” qualities or not be as masculine as humanely possible.
