im at stupid dang fuckin orientation sitting here doing nothing I want to watch anime
im calling child protective services rn
I would say “wtf is gender it’s arbitrary” but like, socially, gender is uh, it’s fuckin there. it matters in our society, because men are raised a certain way, women are raised a certain way, and not everyone has the chance or decency to learn about gender and sexism and all that shapow
I think about this a lot. I also think a lot about how men who uhhh, fuck, how do I word this, like, sometimes I feel like, towards trans girls, “why do you think you can just call yourself a woman…have you lived through the same kind of oppression we have?” but I know there’s something wrong with that thought…trans women have their own kind of oppression, perhaps worse than what a typical woman experiences…people are so undereducated about transexuals…including myself…and I want to understand more but I’m not sure how to go about that.
the truth is, I have no idea what it feels like to be trans, I’ve never felt anything about wanting to be a boy or queer or whatever…
at the end of the day it’s really what experiences you’ve had…I hate to generalize, but what am I supposed to do if I am constantly appauled by the men I interact with? it’s like the touching the hot stove once thing you know…but I touched the stove like 10 thousand times and it fuckin hurt dude
tl;dr: if you are committing yourself to being a woman, personally, I think it’s fine to call yourself a feminist.
I misspoke in that other text post, I mean, if you’re a guy, I’d say you support feminism, but it’s ~ok~ to say you’re a feminist if you’re a guy, but personally I think it’s more PC to say you’re an ally or whatever…but anyone who identifies as a female and commits to that, sure?
I could be totally speaking out of my ass but this is just some thoughts I have on the subject.
I don’t want to be hateful per se…it gets me thinkin’ about princess mononoke…I don’t want it to overpower me…but why wouldn’t I feel an inkling of hatred toward people who are or contribute to my oppressors?
sexist towards men? maybe that would be healthy for men to experience sexism the way women do.
racist? towards who? white people? hahahahahaHAHAHA
