Intersex babies are not having difficulty with sexual identity or self-image. The parents are, and parental anxiety about the appearance of a child’s genitals should be treated with counseling, not with surgery to the child.

I will forever support fellow poc girls who have to wax and shave because if they grow it out white girls wouldn’t think of it as feminism but they’ll just say “she’s hairy and dirty” and call her a “monkey”
But when a white girl has like three hairs on her armpit from growing it out for months she’s “brave” and a “role model “
If you only support “attractive” white chicks with armpit hair while mocking poc women for something they can’t control, as in facial hair, chest hair, leg hair, thick back and neck hair.
You aren’t a feminist.
You’re a racist

Those extremely blonde girls who come to you and are like “oh I never shaved my legs and no-one ever complained, not shaving is easy!”, and they show you their barely-visible super thin golden leg hair that can only be seen when the light incides in a certain specific way.

And you’re like:

Yeah sure no one is gonna notice.

Are you two really feminists? Before the feminist movement, porn was never authorized, and girls lived better without all the consequences that the "sexual liberation" has done to them

fucknopornblogs:

What the fuck are you even talking about anon? You do realise that the sexual revolution/liberation of the 1960s was a primarily leftist male effort that was designed to turn women into communal sexual property instead of individual sexual property (as the Right would have it,) right?

Feminists don’t stand for porn.

this upsets me

I AM SO FEELING IT NOW, MR. KRABS

What the fuck is this shit.

This makes me feel every negative feeling on the planet right now and I need it to stop.

I didn’t need to know how a broken rib and giving birth felt simultaneously.

Defend sex-negative and sex-repulsed women to the death.

um why

Because people treat them like crap?

No surprise at all that this is the only iteration of “defend x to the death” to get that question.

"… there was in fact a “law” of sorts that demanded women of color in Louisiana to cover their hair with a fabric cloth starting in 1789 as a part of what was called the Bando du buen gobierno (Edict for Good Government).  What these rules were meant to do was try to curtail the growing influence of the free black population and keep the social order of the time. The edict included sections specifically about the changing of certain “unacceptable” behaviors of the free black women in the colony including putting an end to what he and others believed to be the overly ostentatious hairstyles of these ladies which drew the attention of white men, and the jealousy of white women. These rules are called the “Tignon Laws” A tignon (pronounced “tiyon”) is a headdress.”
“Apparently, women of color were wearing their hair in such fabulous ways, adding jewels and feathers to their high hairdos and walking around with such beauty and pride that it was obscuring their status. This was very threatening to the social stability (read: white population) of the area at the time. The law was meant to distinguish women of color from their white counterparts and to minimize their beauty.”
