beautiful but dangerous

And if by chance an honest man like yourself should make enemies, then they would become my enemies. And then they would fear you.

"I won’t be protected. I will choose for myself what is ladylike and right. To shield me is an insult."

"I love women who are bosses and who don’t constantly worry about what their employees think of them. I love women who don’t ask, “Is that OK?” after everything they say. I love when women are courageous in the face of unthinkable circumstances, like my mother when she was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer. Or like Gabrielle Giffords writing editorials for the New York Times about the cowardice of Congress regarding gun laws and using phrases like “mark my words” like she is Clint Eastwood. How many women say stuff like that? I love mothers who teach their children that listening is often better than talking. I love obedient daughters who absorb everything—being perceptive can be more important than being expressive. I love women who love sex and realize that sexual experience doesn’t have to be the source of their art. I love women who love sex and can write about it in thoughtful, creative ways that don’t exploit them, as many other people will use sex to exploit them. I love women who know how to wear menswear."

As long as white womens’ empowerment requires lowering everyone else their “feminism” is just rebranded white supremacy. Allen sings, “there’s a glass ceiling to break” her video indicates it’s only herself she wishes on the other side. “

"Fashion is one of the very few forms of expression in which women have more freedom than men. And I don’t think it’s an accident that it’s typically seen as shallow, trivial, and vain. It is the height of irony that women are valued for our looks, encouraged to make ourselves beautiful and ornamental… and are then derided as shallow and vain for doing so. And it’s a subtle but definite form of sexism to take one of the few forms of expression where women have more freedom, and treat it as a form of expression that’s inherently superficial and trivial. Like it or not, fashion and style are primarily a women’s art form. And I think it gets treated as trivial because women get treated as trivial."


— Greta Christina, Fashion is a Feminist Issue (via katemess)

"The feminist movement likes to think of itself as being anti-oppression, anti-racism, anti-homophobia and anti-transphobia. And I do think that most feminists believe in these ideas in theory; unfortunately, many of them have a harder time putting these concepts into practice. There’s a tendency to ignore or even silence queer women, trans* women and women of colour, and while I don’t think that this silencing is intentional, exactly, I do think that many people, even those working within the feminist movement, don’t want to address this problem or even acknowledge that it happens.

Here’s the thing: when someone from an oppressed group speaks up, you listen. You shut your mouth and you listen. You don’t tell them that we’re all women, here, and the issues that we’re working to resolve are issues that affect all women. You don’t discount their lived experiences by countering with your own examples of being oppressed as a white woman. And finally, you most fucking do not pretend that sexism experienced by women of colour or queer women or trans women is exactly the same as what you’ve experienced. Because it’s not; it’s worse. Get off your high horse, acknowledge your privilege, and let someone else have the microphone for a while. Feminism isn’t an egalitarian movement if it’s only promoting the rights of white, educated, middle-class women."

"White feminists who boycotted Pacific Rim because they believed that Mako Mori is a step back in feminism are one of the reasons why I don’t seek solidarity. White feminists don’t understand how significant the character Mako Mori is. Whenever East Asian women are represented in the media they’re portrayed as submissive, China Dolls, Dragon Ladies, Lotus flowers, and Mako Mori is a BIG ”fuck you” to the Entertainment industry that continues to perpetuate these racist stereotypes. But no, you white feminists HAD to boycott the movie, attempting to convince others to do the same and y’all said absolutely nothing about the White washing of Katniss Everdeen, who is a woman of color, and how they prevented women of color from auditioning for the role."
