Read Before You Follow Me:

My page contains posts about racism, sexism, heteronormativity and homophobia, gender and sexuality, fat politics and thin privilege, rape culture and consent, ableism, cissexism and trans*- phobia/ misogyny, and general information about institutionalized oppressive power structures. Please do not message me about being racist against white people or being sexist against men. If you do not understand the concepts of privilege and oppression and institutional oppressive power structures, then I suggest you seek information and education elsewhere before critiquing my posts.

*If you need something tagged for trigger warnings or for Tumblr Savior that I missed, please let me know! I apologize in advance if I do not tag something appropriately.*

“My mistrust [of men] is not, as one might expect, primarily a result of the violent acts done on my body, nor the vicious humiliations done to my dignity. It is, instead, born of the multitude of mundane betrayals that mark my every relationship with a man—the casual rape joke, the use of a female slur, the careless demonization of the feminine in everyday conversation, the accusations of overreaction, the eye rolling and exasperated sighs in response to polite requests to please not use misogynist epithets in my presence.”

10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

If white American feminist theory need not deal with the differences between us, and the resulting difference in our oppressions, then how do you deal with the fact that the women who clean your houses and tend your children while you attend conferences on feminist theory are, for the most part, poor women and women of Color?

What is the theory behind racist feminism?
