Check out this awesome site (Not Alone) that encourages people to share their stories about abortion. It is gendered but I think it would be awesome for others who do not identify as cisgender women to share their stories as well.

bigoted feminism is feminism but it’s an extremely skewed and awful version of feminism that needs to be called out and critiqued and altered. there are huge problems within the feminist movement such as racism and transphobia and transmisogyny that need to be addressed, and writing off these sort of things as “not real feminism” ignores these issues and writes off the experiences of the affected people as unimportant

a lot of ppl seem confused on what cultural appropriation is so lemme break it down

IT IS NOT: enjoying food from another culture, enjoying music from another culture, learning about another culture, or learning another language

Because all of those things are inherently a part of that person and their identity and by “not caring” about those things you are saying that you don’t care about them as a person, and also erasing important aspects of them

"Not caring" is not the same as being accepting, and it is certainly not respectful

The publishing industry’s packaging of women’s literary fiction in stereotypically girly covers makes great books seem trashy.

Even when their artistic merits are equal, women writers often still lack the cultural authority of their male counterparts, and this rampant trashy branding contributes to that disparity.”
