My favorite thing about feminism is that you literally only have to say the word and BOOM done, men will literally prove your point FOR you
when it comes to gender oppression issues, the focus has to be on how society perceives someone, rather than how someone perceives themselves. this is the difference between a materialist analysis and the quicksand pit of postmodernist individualism
Destroy the idea that all textposts criticizing social norms should start with “destroy the idea”.
Kill the idea that said textposts should also end with “act of violence”.
Any textpost that begins or ends like that is in itself an act of violence.
"women enjoy porn too" should be filed under "Wow,That Really Doesn’t Change a Damn Thing".
Sitting here waiting…
…for someone else to point out that our college rape epidemic *might possibly* be influenced by the hardcore porn all these college guys watched, starting when they were age 12.
But no, they’re blaming like, underwear ads and girls who can’t hold their liquor.
The elephant in the room says Hello.
I think there is a real fear of being labeled anti-sex. The way pornographers and their allies have sold this is that you’re either pro-pornography or you’re anti-sex. Which of course is ludicrous because pornography is not the same as sex. Pornography is an industrial product. It commodifies human needs and sells it back to people, often in an unrecognizable form. It is not simply a reflection of reality. It is a specific representation of it and it is a specific way of representing sex.
Now to assume that if you are against pornography you’re against sex, is to assume that anyone who criticizes McDonald’s is anti-eating. People who criticize McDonald’s are against the destruction of the environment, against the assault on healthy foods, and against child obesity. They are against an industrial product. They are not against eating. So why can’t they see that it is the same thing when it comes to pornography and sex?
women: *are killed, beaten, raped, and put down constantly for hundreds of years just for being women*

men: ”see this is the problem with feminism it promotes hate speech they’re no better than sexist men why can’t i punch women in the face and why does the guy have to pay on dates #equalitarianism”
