spacedyke:

i mean. male ego comes from the phallus. and men see the phallus as the penis, but trans women radicals, we understand the phallus is not the physical penis but the attitudes and entitlement - that’s what they’re scared of losing. but to men, they can’t separate the physical…

How feminists see all men.

That’s not how feminists see all men, but many women have experienced street harassment involving men in cars making rape threats. And when anti-feminists try to justify street harassment by acting like it’s normal male behavior, THEY’RE the ones who see all men like this.

A WOMAN CAN BE STRONG WITH A MAN.

LOVE DOES NOT MAKE PEOPLE WEAK.

SOMEBODY SAID IT.

I'm so sorry that things turned out how they did. Whoever had the audacity to send you those threats deserve so much shit. Please keep safe, and I hope you find yourself with supportive people.

theroguefeminist:

thanks it’s really incredible someone would do that in my mind too - it makes me wonder what kind of person it is you know?

like are they someone who attended the trans class without any good intentions, hoping to find a trans person to target?

are they a bigot who needed the class for credits and begrudgingly came?

are they actually not so conservative but they were mad at something i did or said to them in class that threatened their liberal sensibilities and decided to troll me/terrorize me to put me in my place?

are they the bigoted friend of someone in that class the person didn’t realize was an asshole and gave my blog to?

are they a troll or bigot who lives nowhere near me and hoped to scare me by using that email?

it’s strange, i don’t know and can’t know

I need feminism because when my ex-boyfriend found out I was gay, he told me he would “fuck me straight.” He raped me.

I need feminism because my baby-sitter’s oldest son who was 18 molested me for a year when I was 4 years old and wasn’t arrested until 14 years later because he raped a 6 year old girl, but they said the girl and I dressed older than our age because we wore tank tops…

oh my godddddd there is a new swedish reality tv show where they are tracking down internet trolls and confronting them about the death threats they’ve sent to people, since it’s actually illegal.

watching them try to explain how it’s not them is the best entertainment i’ve ever seen.

this episode ended with them fining him 5000 SEK to be paid to the victim!

guess what America should do

GOD BLESS

Men’s Rights Activists.

OH MY GOD THIS IS A PERFECT REPRESENTATION

I will never stop my assault on tumblr and feminism

You will never silence the voice of men, never.

You can not gain equality unless you give it.

Ps? Getting kicked in the testicles is scientifically more painful than giving birth. So you can fuck yourselves.

I will never give up until every tumblr feminist is gone, withering away in the dirt. The egalitarian master race sends their regards.

Feminism is outdated.

Guys look fresh men tears

Outdated? Women’s rights had an expiration date? When was this? Were there flyers?

White men’s voices have been the only ones allowed to exist for thousands of years

and suddenly when other people try to speak up too it’s OMG U R SILENCING ME THE HORRORRRR YOU MUST ALL DIEEEEE

how pathetic is that

Jews make up 62% of religious hate crime victims in the United States, despite being 2.1% of the population. 

This particular link, by the by, is an excellent source on who is targeted by hate crime in the US. 

I think antisemitism is a mix of religious and racial prejudice.

Women Prisoners Sterilized To Cut Welfare Costs In California

This news doesn’t disturb me as much as the comments in which dozens and dozens of hideous pieces of human garbage advocate for eugenics and the violation of POC women’s human rights. The forced sterilization of women of color in the US was an enormous civil rights issue and now it’s happening again.

Experts have repeatedly debunked the myth that transgender non-discrimination laws give sexual predators access to women’s restrooms, but that hasn’t stopped conservative media outlets from promoting fake news stories to fear monger about trans-inclusive bathrooms.
For as long as the transgender community has fought for protection from discrimination in public spaces, conservatives have peddled the myth that sexual predators will exploit non-discrimination laws to sneak into women’s restrooms.
That fear has been an extremely effective tool for scaring people into voting against even basic protections for transgender people, which is why conservatives routinely use the phrase “bathroom bill" to describe laws prohibiting discrimination in public accommodations. When conservative media outlets attack non-discrimination laws for transgender people, they almost exclusively focus on bathroom and locker room facilities.
But that fear is baseless - completely unsupported by years of evidence from states that already have non-discrimination laws on the books. In a new 
Media Matters report, experts from twelve states - including law enforcement officials, state human rights workers, and sexual assault victims advocates - debunk the myth that non-discrimination laws have any relation to incidents of sexual assault or harassment in public restrooms
