Smash the patriarchy and bedazzle the remains

What patriarchy? Do you mean that made-up bullshit feminists created so they could be relevant again?

Why hello, random citizen. It seems to me that you are rather ignorant on a key point of feminism. Luckily, I am a feminist that is here to educate you. 

Your first question, I have heard often. “What is patriarchy,” you sob fitfully as nightmares of giant teddy bears fill your infant head. Your mother and father have been sleeping, but now awake grudgingly, mumbling things like “it’s your turn to feed him,” and “but honey, I was home all day with him.” 

Finally, your mother drags her fatigued, worn body down the hall to your room, opens the door quietly, pads in, and settles down on a chair next to your crib. She then lifts you out and cradles you while cooing “I could have been anything. I wanted to be a politician, an engineer, a director…but I couldn’t because ‘a little lady like me doesn’t have the head for it.’” Those last words she mocked angrily, her voice sounding clownishly husky and pompous. But then her anger melted away quickly, leaving behind a sense of despondency.

"But I had no chance, anyways," she murmurs sadly. "Because women only make up 99 out of the 535 seats in Congress. Women make up about 18.5% of Congress, while the population of America is about 51% women. What kind of representation is that?"

You turn and wriggle in her arms, in denial of the fact that the government is biased against women, but she holds you even tighter and whispers “Women make up only 13% of all engineers, because girls in school are told that they are naturally worse in subjects like math and science, and are discouraged from taking higher math courses. Even if they do make it into the STEM field, they are much more likely to leave because of workplace harassment, low pay, inadequate lab space, and unequal access to university resources.” 

You feel dampness on your head and realize that she is crying. She is silent for some time before choking out “And women make up only 7% of all directors.” 

Your mother is now sobbing as loudly as you were just a few minutes before. You begin wailing too with renewed vigor. Your father barges into the room, a look of worry on his face before seeing that it is just you and your mother, no criminals insight. He takes you roughly from your mother’s arms and utters “I guess a man has to do everything around here” before stomping out of your room in his freshly laundered pajamas your mother washed for him earlier today, before she cooked everyone dinner and then washed all of the dishes while your father watched football on the television. 

Here are some stats for you to read:

Now get the fuck out with your “no patriarchy” bs.

the only thing funnier than this video are the comments on it

The phrase “beta orbiters” is making me grind my teeth.

amy schumer is a national treasure

These guys don’t understand that they bring this on themselves. They push for a relationship when the chemistry isn’t there, guilt women into feeling bad for them, then get angry when their weird fantasy does not get realized. 

They don’t care that they are making a woman uncomfortable, It’s all about whether or not they get sex or romance in return for being generically sappy and “chivalrous.”

Did you know? It’s your RIGHT to access reproductive healthcare without being intimidated or terrorized.

People need to see this. 

It is illegal to willingly harass and intimidate a person on purpose, even if you are doing it outside of an abortion clinic.  Remember this, pro-lifers.  You can and will be charged. <3

male feminists are trash part 2.

i’m not even bothering to crop out his url that’s how much i don’t give a fuck lmao

Disgusting piece of crap. Same thing is happening to me.

Male feminist are the worst.

Yanno how sometimes creeper d00dz make your skin crawl. This is one of those creeper d00dz.

*Le gasp* A feminist ally!!!!! I’ve made memes just for him!

this guy is STILL following me and it still makes me want to cry and it makes me feel extremely unsafe but you did make it a little better because that meme perfectly describes him. thank you

*Hugs* That’s what the sisterhood is for! And if you want I can give you the links to use all the Feminist Al memes I’ve made so you can use it on him or any other butthole. I got your back.

that would be great! thank you :)

yo uh I looked at youhauntyourbagofbones and she prides herself on being a radfem who is anti-porn, kink critical, and sex-negative.

I don’t think harassing and making someone feel unsafe (especially someone who suffered from a sexually abusive relationship) is a great tactic for anything, but I’m not personally going to support youhauntyourbagofbones’s worldview and type of feminism, either.

(and iwanttoknowwhatifeel seems like an enormous toolbag, too)

LMAO! Omg.

WOW, just…just wow. Are you fucking kidding me with this shit? Like really. You sat your ass down at a computer and really thought to yourself “I see that this rape survivor is being harassed, and I don’t agree with that harassment, but I refuse to stand by her side because I disagree with her ~~problematic~~ views.”

Want to know why I’m anti porn? Because it promotes the degradation of women. Because it’s violent, and disgusting,and because it quite literally promotes rape. A study done by  Ana J. Bridges called “Pornography’s Effects on Interpersonal Relationships” proved that males who watched porn:

  1. Report decreased empathy for rape victims 
  2. Believe that a woman who dresses “provocatively” deserves to be raped
  3. Report anger at women who flirt but refuse to have sex
  4. Experience substantially decreased interest in their partners
  5. Report increased interest in coercing partners into unwanted sex acts

Want to know why I’m kink critical? It has quite a lot to do with how I was raped, actually. See, my ex boyfriend watched a LOT of porn, especially bdsm/kink porn, and he wanted to try it on me. I refused, and he didn’t listen. He coerced me and coerced me until I said yes, and then later didn’t even attempt to coerce me, just started forcing himself onto me instead.

Want to know why I’m sex negative? I’m assuming you do, because you were so0o0o0o0o0o preoccupied by the links on my sidebar that you actually thought it was relevant enough to bring up….so I’ll tell you. I’m sex negative because when I tried to find help, support, and understanding ears in the sex positive community, I was accused of “kink shaming.” I wanted to discuss this with people (who were open to listening, of course) but no one would listen. Everyone plugged their ears and tried to make believe that my experience was an anomaly; that it was so rare that it wasn’t even worth mentioning…because no one in the kink community is "really" like that, amirite? My ex boyfriend was just a mirage of some sort, and the abuse I experienced, to the sex positive community at least, wasn’t real abuse.

So you know what? Fuck you. Don’t you dare pretend like you care an inch for rape survivors (or if you are one yourself, then fellow rape survivors) when you’re going to derail such an important post with your irrelevant, ignorant bullshit.

Thanks for giving me a panic attack, you’re not much better than iwanttoknowwhatifeel.  

I’ve made a huge mistake.

Whatever personal worldview or politics I have were completely irrelevant to the issue at hand: that some dude (it’s always us dudes, it’s always dudes like us) was making a sexual abuse and rape survivor feel unsafe in her own space, and who was doing everything he could to continue  making her feel unsafe.

I got to this conversation from a follower reblogging it, and my initial reaction was “fuck that iwanttoknowwhatifeel gross dude!” I checked into everyone’s tumblrs, and then reblogged the stupid shit I did to respond to my follower, apparently not knowing how tumblr works and got my stuff out to the OP, who really did not need to know my dumb man-pinions.

This does not excuse what I said or how I did it, only explains it. As if that’s even desired or wanted.

So, I’m sorry. Unqualified and without reservation, I’m sorry. I hurt youhauntyourbagofbones by my negligence and my privilege.

IN case you were unaware, justifying body shaming with health talk sounds a lot like saying unhealthy bodies don’t deserve love!
