My dad gave our 2 month old English bulldog puppy a taste of strawberry Popsicle today. This is true happiness.

kristen loves women and she doesn’t take shit
It’s wonderful how much of this game she is not playing.
I love and respect Kristen Stewart so much UGH
If you aren’t trying to change my mind then why are you even talking to me about this? Stop lying about your motives both to yourself and to me.
My hatred is reactionary, my anger is reactionary, my grief for my female sisters is reactionary. I am reacting to thousands of years of abuse and subjugation.
My hatred and my anger will not stop until men stop raping, murdering, and abusing us. My hatred will stop when there is no longer a widespread need for crisis centers for women because our boyfriends, fathers, husbands, and even strangers feel like our body is their property to rape or knock around. My anger will stop when little girls aren’t being groomed for motherhood and for dating men before we are old enough to tie our own shoes. My hatred will stop when teenage girls no longer have to fend off the gaze and touch of middle aged men. My anger will stop when women are no longer forced to sell their bodies for food, their sense of selves for a place to sleep. My hatred will stop when men stop trying to force their way into our spaces, when men recognize that they have been enforcing and maintaining a system that knocks women to their knees so that they can feel tall.
My hatred, my anger, it is reactionary. Male hatred, that is unfounded.
Spend your time telling them to not “fight fire with fire” or telling them that “hate breeds hate”.
I am fighting fire with the only thing available to me, go tell men to stop fucking lighting the fires, then we can talk.
Hatred did not bring about sexism, women’s role in reproduction (which we could not control, and for millenia, did not fully understand) did. We were vulnerable and weaker during pregnancy (compared to men) and needed more food besides; we learned to depend on men and they learned that they could control us by controlling our food supply. Happens in many primate species, actually. As Engels wrote, monogamy was then the basis of inherited wealth and the nuclear family gave birth to the institutions of private property and the state. This is why many feminists believe it is the “root” oppression, since this pattern replicated throughout the world, in all races and societies.
HATE had nothing to do with it. Power, wealth, and control, most certainly.
Love and hate were by-products. Until the middle ages or something (in the West, but still true in some areas) betrothed couples were arranged marriages and not even expected to love each other. That slowly evolved into men deciding who would be their spouses, with women not permitted to accept or decline on their own behalf (as in FIDDLER ON THE ROOF), their father decided for them.
It has been only very very recently in Western history (advent of birth control pill) that women had any power over our own lives, and in some countries, still do not.
Positing sexism as “hate” is very ignorant of history. And make no mistake, women’s anger is what finally ended these practices; women angry over marrying men they didn’t love and having babies they didn’t want.
Piscula is part of a proud, angry tradition. :)
"I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take side. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages, the tormentor, never the tormented."
WEIRD BECAUSE ELIE WIESEL ALSO SAID:
People who compare abortion to the Holocaust "prove that they do not know what the Holocaust was."
He also advocates for safe and legal abortion because he saw what lack of access to abortive medicine did to some of the people in the holocaust. Pregnant people were usually killed upon arrival, rather than kept as sub-par workers.
So trully, in the actual* holocaust, being caught pregnant was an automatic and immediate death sentence as soon as the guards discovered your condition. While many able-bodies people were kept to work or to forcedly make products such as marching boots for the soldiers, pregnant people and people with young babies were killed as soon as possible.
Good logic, pro-lifers.
Why do you always use quotes by pro-choice people to try to defend your incorrect views? Cut it out. Cmon.
*Only one holocaust ever happened and it did not happen to fetuses.
Reblogging for awesome.
Gender is a system of domination and subordination, not what clothes you put on in the morning. Gender is a cage that women are coercively forced into from the moment we take our first breath. Stretching out the hierarchy with female at the bottom and male at the top to include fairy genders and bunselves won’t keep little girls from walking with their eyes down until some one tells them it’s okay to look up.
