How much time have you spent talking to some cishet dude when you didn’t want to just because you’re scared of what his reaction would be if you declined?
…and that’s what it means to be socialized into fear and constant male accommodation as a means of survival
maybe 2014 is the year ke($)ha and taylor swift switch places. “thinking of you” could already be a taylor swift song, the pointed inflection on each syllable of iT’s DiSgUsTiNg is swiftian in nature, you don’t have to strain to imagine how a song like “better than revenge” could be happily freed and empowered by a little sloppy party girl anarchy. these are already the same stories just told, in turn, by the girl perched carefully in a booth with her appropriate date in pinstripes, and the one standing on the bar shimmying out of her bra as a party trick. and dirt clouds move. kesha could wash her hair and release a self-titled seventies soft rock tinged ~confessional~ album as kesha sebert, wear wide brimmed hats and loose dresses. taylor has already more or less promised this next album is going to be Taylor Does Dance Music, and who is to say she has any intention to ever again wear anything that johnny weir wouldn’t approve of or to hang out with anybody but supermodels. i mean, ke$ha hasnt cornered the market on glitter.
I mean, yes, absolutely, yes, but also what if 2014 is not the year that ke($)ha and taylor switch places exactly but instead the year that they begin to merge, merge into one glorious cultural force, the year the two girls out at the same bar who never used to talk to each other because one of them was not much for dancing and the other was working very hard to make sure that the party don’t stop but they’ve both eased up a little and they finally end up together at the mirror in the cramped bathroom, both of them a little tipsy, both of them fixing their hair in silence until taylor says “oh my god I love your shoes” because they are cowboy boots coevered in glitter which actually I would bet you one million dollars is also something taylor swift herself owns and isn’t shoe compatibility more indicative than most things, and ke($)ha’s like “oh hey gurl thanks, you know, I see you around all the time” and then suddenly they are best friends because that is what happens in bar bathrooms at 1am. then they do shots together and ignore the dudes they came with and hours later end up taking ke($)ha’s gold trans am to the beach to watch the sunrise and jam on their guitars.
If every single radical feminist, hell if every single woman in the world suddenly and unanimously agreed that trans women were 100% definitely women/female there would still be endless amounts of violence directed at trans women.
And if you don’t understand why that would be, and how incredibly unhelpful all these violent arguments you have against gender critical women are to your cause you don’t really understand how the system of patriarchy and sexism works at all.
imagine if trans “feminists” got their way. imagine if they got all of us to stop speaking about our female bodies and our experiences as females. just think about how feminism would look without input from actual females regarding what we go through as females
imagine, if all the TERFS in the world suddenly died, and their transphobia died with them. imagine if cis women weren’t so shitty about their “feminism”, what a world it would be, what a better place to live in.
wouldn’t it be hilarious if people who called themselves feminists wished blanket death over an entire group of females to protect the feelings of males? haha oh wow. that would be crazy
If all the “terfs” died then men would still continue to murder trans people.
voldemort calls harry ‘weak’ while he literally cannot kill a frickin 15 yr old boy. i could kill a 15 yr old boy.
