Anonymous asked: When does a fetus become human?
A fetus is human. No one is saying otherwise. A fetus becomes a sentient human being with bodily autonomy and personhood rights when it is born.
Individualistic feminism accomplishes nothing for women as a class.
When feminism is defined as “doing what makes you happy in the name of activism”, that renders feminism null, void, and useless. There has to be rules, instead of being a vaguely activist free-for all.
Individualistic feminism has no end goal, is not realistic, and helps no one but upper-middle class suburban people.
This is why we must return to feminism by means of dismantling misogynistic systems, and aiming for women’s lib, even if it means putting the movement before the individual.
"Because women of colour experience racism in ways not always the same as those experienced by men of color and sexism in ways not always parallel to experiences of white women, antiracism and feminism are limited, even on their own terms… The failure of feminism to interrogate race means that the resistance strategies of feminism will often replicate and reinforce the subordination of people of colour, and the failure of antiracism to interrogate patriarchy means that antiracism will frequently reproduce the subordination of women"

I’d say that patriarchy is the most dangerous force in the world.
There are no Jack Kerouacs or Holden Caulfields for girls. Literary girls don’t take road-trips to find themselves; they take trips to find men.
"Great" books, as defined by the Western canon, didn’t contain female protagonists I could admire. In fact, they barely contained female protagonists at all.
How can you know how big space is, stare out at space, see pictures of the beauty that’s out there, and be like “yeah there’s only two genders.”
