"My response to the ‘I am not a feminist’ internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (it is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.

stupidstagram:

horrible aggressive misogyny and the romanticization of domestic violence and sexual torture aren’t some of my favorite things and young girls picking up that book or watching that movie being left wondering if that’s what relationships are supposed to be REALLY makes me angry. 

this man takes a young woman who is less powerful, less experienced and not entirely confident about the area of life he’s leading her into and then starts doing horrible sexual things to her, he removes her boundaries and normalizes the violence against her

50 shades of grey reinforces and perpetuates the disgusting lie that women LIKE and WANT to be hurt and that you can heal a broken man if you just love him enough and do all the things he wants you to do bc eventually he won’t want to hurt you anymore 

he goes from a sexually violent predator to prince charming and it’s gross and offensive and nobody should support it no matter how cute the guy playing him is.
