Is smacking “white” “cis” “Western” “imperialist” or “middle-class” onto the word “feminists” supposed to convince me to not listen to those feminists about, like, prostitution and stuff? Why? What’s not ad hominem about it?
Is the adjective “white” a word referring a political strategy for economic gain to be abolished or is it a convenient pejorative white folks throw in against whoever holds views we would rather not honestly engage with?
some dude: “What should I do if I see someone being a bad feminist though? “
omg nothing!! women will continue to thrive and better ourselves without the input of these KHAKI SLACKS like cool it
"can I pretty please harass women for deviating from my sexy version of their liberatory struggle?"
"The Israeli army is independent in the way it’s controlling all of Israeli society. The Israeli media, the Israeli court—everybody is working underneath the army censorship. Nobody can publish anything in Israel—of course, not researchers—and I’m not talking only on TV or radio or newspaper; I’m talking on bloggers in the Internet. Nobody can publish anything if it doesn’t go through the IDF censorship, the same IDF censorship that censored crimes for years under the occupation of the Palestinians in Palestine. And now they want us to come to them, to be silenced by them. It’s, of course, ridiculous."

"I’m doing this job for almost five years now, since Operation Cast Lead. I’m collecting testimonies from soldiers. I started in Breaking the Silence, the organization, and moved on independently to take testimonies, collect testimonies from soldiers in the IDF, because I was there as a soldier, and I know that what we get in the mainstream media and what we get in the news is most of the time very far from what’s really going on in the area. In this summer, I was sitting in Jerusalem in my home, and the atmosphere in Israel, the fascist atmosphere in the streets in Jerusalem, and the overall approval of this terrible massacre that happened in Gaza was so overwhelming that I decided to go on down to the border with Gaza and try to speak directly with the soldiers, because I knew that I will get something else from them."

“If a girl is lucky enough to receive any sex education, she will be taught the biological basics. She’ll learn that men have penises and testicles and produce sperm and women have vaginas and uterii and produce ova. She’ll learn that when a man and a woman have sex, the man inserts his penis into the woman’s vagina until he ejaculates. She’ll learn that the semen in the ejaculate will render her vulnerable to pregnancy so she will have to protect herself by using a hormonal or a barrier contraceptive. Hormonal contraception is preferable because barrier methods such as condoms, while safer for women, apparently reduce sensation for men which is obviously a no-no. It’s much better that a woman take a pill every day for her entire reproductive lifespan, or get a painful injection every 12 weeks, or have a copper rod inserted into her uterus, or a silicone rod implanted into her arm. She probably won’t learn that 3 out of 4 women never orgasm from vaginal intercourse. She almost definitely won’t learn how women do achieve orgasm. She’ll learn her place as a receptacle.”
Feminists bitch and whine when they can get their every birth control free, because z,it has other health benefits” sep when it comes to complain that men don’t like something then it’s oppressive. It’s better birth control then men get. Also I don’t think they are learning how men get orgasms either and I think the 3 of 4 is just plan made up
do you think “antifeministphoenix” types like this to bait for accusation of ableism or what

"We also ask [U.N. secretary-general Ban Ki-moon] to make sure that all of the United Nations will come united as one U.N. here, because currently the lead in the U.N. is with the what’s called UNODC, which is the U.N. Agency Office for Drug and Crime and trafficking. But drugs is not only about crime and trafficking. Drugs is about health. Drugs is about human rights. Drugs is about HIV/AIDS, TB, hepatitis. Drugs is about development. Drugs is about social coherence and democracy."

"I can’t help the way I feel, and I don’t want to lie about it. I enjoy machismo chest beating, aggression and violence."
