The Fault in Our Stepbrothers

ah, yes, as opposed to natural, organic genders harvested from the Gender Tree in the far-off, mystical Gender Land
free range gender

Saving Face (2012), acid attacks on women in Pakistan
Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.
You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.
As a South Asian American feminist, let me remind everyone that oppression is not a competition.
Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.
My heart goes out to this woman and the hundreds of other victims like her. I want to educate people about these kinds of incidents. I support organizations that help women like this.
You may think that dress code issues are trivial, but they are related to a larger issue of women’s bodily autonomy, which affects women’s health and safety.
So please, let’s try to bring awareness and bring about change instead of insulting entire groups of people because they are facing issues that are less scary than the one presented.
“oppression is not a competition”
thank you so much for this wording
Trivializing smaller forms of oppression does not help in the fight against more brutal and violent oppressions. Anyone who says “There are worse things happening in the world than [insert pretty much anything a Western feminist might talk about].” is actively reinforcing patriarchy.
It is a common tactic of the oppressor to minimize smaller forms of oppression as a way to justify their actions.
“OPPRESSION IS NOT A COMPETITION”
saying feminism is unnecessary because you don’t feel oppressed is like saying fire extinguishers are unnecessary because your house isn’t on fire

THIRD TIME REBLOGGING
Microsoft Excel took a turn for the explicit this week when the Internet learned the once-innocuous office tool was being used in a dispiriting new bro-trend: using the software to track of the number of times their partners refuse sex. Yes, #sexspreadsheets are a thing, presumably because some men still believe that owning of a penis entitles them to unlimited sexy times.
