"

If a young woman in middle school or high school hangs up a poster of Barack Obama in her room, this is seen as acceptable. It’s fine for women to admire men and want to be like them.

If a young man (the same age) hangs up a poster of Hillary Clinton in his room, this is seen as odd (maybe even troubling, is he gay? Oh no!).

Society tells us young men can’t think of women as role models, unless they’re a family member, whereas young women can admire and seek to emulate anyone, regardless of gender.

If you’re a young man, and if you have a poster on your wall with a woman, she had better be half-naked in a bikini, even if the Ronald Reagan or Gen. Patton poster next to it obviously features the man fully-clothed.

Young men are not to taught to think of women as role models. They are taught to think of them as either family members or sexual objects. There is no other category presented.

Dear white people…

I don’t agree with this at all. If I told you that I sincerely believe that all black people are physically and mentally superior to all white people and discriminated against white people based on those beliefs, wouldn’t I be racist no matter the society I lived in?

it’s astonishing the amount of people who still don’t fucking know how racism works, or what the term actually means.

You can believe that all you want but we live in THIS society

which means hundreds of years of white imperialism, massive amounts of discrimination against PoC, and you actually have no institutional power to discriminate against white people because THEY have the power to punish you for anything you do.

And this sort of mindset keeps you from thinking about what you are doing that is racist and working to change your own beliefs and actions.

  • be thin
  • give birth
  • cook for you
  • have long hair
  • wear makeup
  • have sex with you
  • be feminine
  • be graceful
  • shave
  • diet
  • be fashionable
  • wear pink
  • love men
  • be the media’s idea of perfection
  • listen to your bullshit
  • have a vagina

This is very true, but it’s important to remember that if a woman is feminine, graceful, shaves, diets, wears make up, or does any of these things in the list, it doesn’t make her a slave to patriarchy or any less of a feminist than you.

BLESS.
