she-who-defied-fate said: After all the shit that gets talked about this blog, I just wanted to say that I'm glad I built up the courage to skim through some of this blog for myself. I'm reading opinions that I disagree with and finding them interesting, educated, even uplifting. So with that out of the way, do you object to women saying that they *personally* do not need feminism? Is it not understandable that some women would object to being classified as victims?

misandry-mermaid:

I think there is a huge difference between a woman saying “I don’t personally need feminism, therefore I am anti-feminist/I think feminism is unnecessary.” and “I don’t personally need feminism, and I recognize that there are women out with a lot less privileges than me, for whom feminism is necessary in their fight for liberation from systemic hierarchies.”

And please tell me who said that identifying as a feminist was equatable to calling yourself a victim?  Because the only people I ever hear saying feminism = victimhood are anti-feminists. 

There is a difference between saying “I’m a victim, feel bad for me.” and “There are social structures and institutionalized prejudices in place which cause me to be treated as a lesser person in many ways than someone whose identity matches the privileged demographic, and I’m fighting to change that.”

"PALESTINIAN GIRL, YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD"

"When someone enrols in the medicine school that one of the longest schooling required profession, by the time they finish school they will be around 30-or at least on their late 20s. But not for this girl; Eqbal Asa’d is a Palestinian Muslim woman that started the Medicine school when she was just 14 years old, ‘myhijab.info’ reports. Asa’d got her Bachelor degree in Medicine with Honors and was set by the Guinness World Records as the youngest doctor in the World, according to the report. She has been signed to go to Ohio, U.S to continue her education even further and become a Pediatrician."  - Source

YOU GUYS SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. SHE IS A FEMALE, A MUSLIM AND A MINORITY. AND SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. 

WHY ARE WE NOT HEARING MORE ABOUT HER?

"If you choose to have sex and want an abortion you shouldn’t be allowed to have one because it’s your fault you’re pregnant."

Petition to deny bigoted, sex-shaming, anti-choice assholes the medical care for anything they could have possibly prevented.

Slipped on ice and broke a bone? Well, you should have been wearing snow grips, you irresponsible [gendered slur]. You WERE wearing snow grips? Well, everyone knows that the only way to be 100% sure you won’t slip on ice is to just not go outside when it’s cold, so it’s your own fault for deciding to leave the house. I don’t see what you’re complaining about; in nine months you’ll barely remember that you broke anything. No doctors for you!

Calling women “sluts” or “whores” is such a childish insult to say. It shows more about your issues than ours. Try to be a little more creative next time you try to insult us. Better yet, mind your own fucking business :)
