If I didn’t, I’d be a pretty poor excuse for a feminist.
Interesting to note that while a history of animal cruelty is widely accepted to be a link with becoming a serial killer, the link between cruelty towards women and killing women is still up for debate. If a guy abuses a cat and then shoots women we say "we should have seen it coming that guy was nuts", but if abuses women and then shoots women we say "we had no way of seeing it coming that guy was a perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human”.
Shit like this is why I don’t put up with men disrespecting my autonomy. Microaggressions are signals that he thinks he can just do whatever he wants, and men who do what they want to a woman over her protests terrify me.
It may start small, but there is no fucking way to tell where it ends without living it, and that is too big a risk.
Here’s a typical thing that happens to Jen Kirkman on twitter:
- She lists things she will block
- A guy immediately tweets her one of the things she said she would block
- He gets blocked
- He is in shock
- He is indignant
- He was a fan but not anymore, not after she blocked him for tweeting her a thing she JUST SAID SHE WOULD BLOCK PEOPLE FOR TWEETING TO HER
Thank you #fuckyeahjenkirkman for making this. Since I blocked him I didn’t see this. But the world should!
okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.
Everyone keeps talking about smashing the capitalist state, and that’s a laudable goal, but I’m not sure that enough people are thinking deeply enough about what they plan to do afterwards.
This is why I left my former political party. It’s also why I wrote a manifesto, which I’ve since lost, because I had ideas for after the revolution.
