Badass Warriors w/ Boobs

Let me learn more and be a better person.   

Just another social justice blog run by a straight cis WoC as she goes through her Women's/Gender Studies major and carves out an identify for herself in the world. Occasionally NSFW, and I've recently taken to reblogging a lot of PoC artwork/photography.

I've identified as a feminist for several years with a specific passion for body image/self-esteem/use of Photoshop in advertising as well as female/PoC representation in Disney/movies. However, I still consider myself a novice in the field. I acknowledge that I am greatly privileged in MANY ways, and do my best to refrain from butting in on conversations concerning spaces (LGBTQIA+, mental illness, differently-abled) where I am not oppressed.

This is not a pretty blog that talks about pretty things. The posts will often be angry. Many posts will contain swearing. When I break my silence in reposts, I will sometimes do the same. If you're a newcomer to these kinds of discussions, I hope you will start questioning. I hope you will also become angry. And as idealistic as it is, I hope you become inspired to change things.

(If you know me personally, I apologize in advance for the TMI tidbits you will eventually come across. Also, not all badass warriors have boobs. Nor do they need to. I just like B's.)

PLEASE call me out on my mistakes.
On *some* occasions, I will also be willing to educate people on this or that.

"According to the UN only 25 per cent of women with disabilities are in the global workforce.
Literacy rates for women with disabilities globally may be as low as one per cent.
Mortality rates among girls with disabilities are much higher than for boys.
Women with disabilities face significantly more difficulties in attaining access to adequate housing, health, education, vocational training & employment, & are more likely to be institutionalized. They also experience inequality in hiring, promotion & equal pay, access to training & retraining, credit & other productive resources.
According to the UN disabled women rarely participate in economic decision making."

kayteee138 asked: It would be advisable for the anon feeling they are racially profiling Hispanic men to seek professional help. I know this sounds generic and annoying in the sense that maybe the anon doesn't have the resources to seek professional help, but honestly he/she is feeling intense triggering responses that can be dangerous if left unattended in any case, let alone being triggered by an entire race of people. I mean dangerous in the anon's case, not for the entire race of people.

Well stated!

Anonymous asked: When I was 15 I was taken advantage of sexually by a much older Hispanic man, and now every time I hear an older Hispanic man speak, or I see one who looks similar I become very uncomfortable, like I'm brought right back to that place, it almost makes me cry. I guess what I'm trying to ask is does this make me a horrible person? I feel like I seem racist now and that I'm disgusting for feeling this way.


Answer:

fucknofetishization:

I don’t want to invalidate your experience, but on the other hand it’s not ok to racial profile latino men like that. Anyone with a similar experience can relate to anon and give some insight? -e

I can definitely understand where that fear and mistrust comes from, personally.

Does anybody else have an opinion???

You want to say Hi to the cute girl on the subway. How will she react? Fortunately, I can tell you with some certainty, because she’s already sending messages to you. Looking out the window, reading a book, working on a computer, arms folded across chest, body away from you = do not disturb. So, y’know, don’t disturb her. Really. Even to say that you like her hair, shoes, or book. A compliment is not always a reason for women to smile and say thank you. You are a threat, remember? You are Schrödinger’s Rapist. Don’t assume that whatever you have to say will win her over with charm or flattery. Believe what she’s signaling, and back off.

If you speak, and she responds in a monosyllabic way without looking at you, she’s saying, “I don’t want to be rude, but please leave me alone.” You don’t know why. It could be “Please leave me alone because I am trying to memorize Beowulf.” It could be “Please leave me alone because you are a scary, scary man with breath like a water buffalo.” It could be “Please leave me alone because I am planning my assassination of a major geopolitical figure and I will have to kill you if you are able to recognize me and blow my cover.”

On the other hand, if she is turned towards you, making eye contact, and she responds in a friendly and talkative manner when you speak to her, you are getting a green light. You can continue the conversation until you start getting signals to back off.

The fourth point: If you fail to respect what women say, you label yourself a problem.

There’s a man with whom I went out on a single date—afternoon coffee, for one hour by the clock—on July 25th. In the two days after the date, he sent me about fifteen e-mails, scolding me for non-responsiveness. I e-mailed him back, saying, “Look, this is a disproportionate response to a single date. You are making me uncomfortable. Do not contact me again.” It is now October 7th. Does he still e-mail?

Yeah. He does. About every two weeks.

This man scores higher on the threat level scale than Man with the Cockroach Tattoos. (Who, after all, is guilty of nothing more than terrifying bad taste.) You see, Mr. E-mail has made it clear that he ignores what I say when he wants something from me. Now, I don’t know if he is an actual rapist, and I sincerely hope he’s not. But he is certainly Schrödinger’s Rapist, and this particular Schrödinger’s Rapist has a probability ratio greater than one in sixty. Because a man who ignores a woman’s NO in a non-sexual setting is more likely to ignore NO in a sexual setting, as well.

So if you speak to a woman who is otherwise occupied, you’re sending a subtle message. It is that your desire to interact trumps her right to be left alone. If you pursue a conversation when she’s tried to cut it off, you send a message. It is that your desire to speak trumps her right to be left alone. And each of those messages indicates that you believe your desires are a legitimate reason to override her rights.

For women, who are watching you very closely to determine how much of a threat you are, this is an important piece of data.

an excerpt from Phaedra Starling’s “Schrödinger’s Rapist: or a guy’s guide to approaching strange women without being maced” (via lostgrrrls)

HOLY FUCK THE TRUTH.

Can every one of my male followers read this? And please, before you get defensive (“I would never rape anyone!”) keep in mind, women being afraid of Shrodinger’s Rapists (oh my god i still can’t get over the encompassing brilliance of this phrase) is a conditioned, learned response from being immersed in rape culture and the evolution of sexism and sexual violence in our society from the day we’re born. And unfortunately, it’s very difficult to unlearn without the efforts of all genders to dismantle it. Which is where you come in.

It’s also just rude and disrespectful to patently ignore what someone has told you regarding their personal space, body, and time. Get a clue.

Ke$ha is a perfect example of how the media loves to make intelligent girls seem dumb and bitchy even though they are actually smart and caring. Ke$ha isn’t far from being a feminist icon but the media continues to label her as a dumb drunk party girl.

and Ke$ha is all for loving yourself and equality but she continues to receive harassment from mainstream media. Enough harassment to the point that she developed an eating disorder because of it. She is an example of how horrible and sexist the music industry is.
