Not wanting anything to do with a penis is not transphobia.
Never wanting to see a penis is not transphobia.
Not wanting to have sexual contact with a penis is not transphobia.
Finding penises unattractive is not transphobia.
Being triggered by penises because of trauma from rape or sexual assault is not transphobia.
Being a lesbian is not transphobia.
Being a bisexual women who does not have sex with males, or being a celibate heterosexual woman is not transphobia.
vagina’s are able to stretch wide enough to give birth to a fucking baby and then return to it’s original size but of course being penetrated by that grass blade you call a penis is what’s going to make it “loose”
Uhh. The baby doesnt come out of where the penis goes in…
stay in school y’all
Swear to god I will reblog this whenever I see it
Wow… what an idiot.
Anonymous said: What's wrong with the "makeup is gender neutral" post?
first and foremostly, it implies makeup is a privilege, rather than a traditionally oppressive ‘beauty’ standard for women. it implies that men are underprivileged because they can’t wear it without judgement instead of analysing the oppressive nature of makeup unto women in the first place. makeup isn’t a ‘fun choice’ we biologically are interested in. for a lot of us, women that do wear it, wear it to belong, not stand out, not be judged, and to be seen as ‘attractive’.
'makeup is gender neutral' is erasing the fact it's an oppressive standard for women rather than a 'fun' choice or privilege.
Okay, no, please stop enforcing this idea to women that makeup is something “bad” or “oppressive.” I’ve been wearing makeup since I was fourteen because I LIKE IT. I think it’s fun, I like to play with colors and shapes and different brush techniques and rhinestones and different colored mascaras and eyeliners and glitter.
There are women that wear makeup because THEY want to wear it. I used to not like makeup because I saw it as covering myself up and hiding my “natural beauty” but when I saw how much fun makeup could be, I fell in love with it. It’s also a coping mechanism for when I’m feeling depressed or my anxiety is spiking.
I do wear makeup to stand out. I don’t wear makeup to be seen as attractive because honestly, I don’t like how makeup looks on me. I don’t think it looks right but I do it anyway because it makes me happy.
So don’t you dare tell me that makeup is oppressing me. Don’t tell me the patriarchy makes me believe I need makeup to feel beautiful. And don’t say that makeup can’t be gender neutral because yes, you are denying men the right to have the same love for makeup that I do and that so many girls like me do.
Don’t take makeup away from me and so many others because you don’t like it. It’s my life.
Okay, straight up; whether or not you’ve grown to ‘like’ the constraints enforced on your gender - they were originally intended as oppressive beauty regiments imposed specifically on females as a means to ‘enhance beauty’ and ‘promote perfection’.
I really could not give a fuck if you ‘like’ wearing make up or think it’s ‘fun’. You can’t change it’s original intention. You can’t change that how the notion of make up supports the multitude of rules imposed on women, and more specifically, women’s beauty.
Make up may be ‘fun’ for you, but saying ‘make up is gender neutral’ is erasing the anxiety and low self esteem CAUSED by pressure for women TO wear make up. Putting on make up reduces anxiety and increases self esteem because we’re taught to hide our natural state (recall corsets and dieting for weight, heels for height and leg definition, shaving to hide pubic hair), and that’s what makes us look more socially acceptable. That’s why I wear make up - because I’m not ignorant enough to say I BIOLOGICALLY enjoy it, or because I’m not ignorant enough to pretend it isn’t apart of the oppressive tool box used to hide and ‘improve’ women.
We can’t sit back and pretend that men have been oppressed through the exact same beauty regimes women have, or that they’ve experienced the same pressure to look and act perfect. Patriarchy can’t pressure women to conform to beauty norms and then when it ‘seems fun’ take it back for men to ‘enjoy’ without acknowledging it’s primary purpose, or the damage it’s done to women’s self esteem.
So just stop being so fucking ignorant. I know it’s hard to analyse or admit that we’ve been put into a box of ‘what makes us women’ through socialisation, but we have. But now that it seems fun, men feel entitled enough to protest ‘make up is gender neutral’ when no, it was never intended for that not acknowledging it’s primary purpose erasive as hell and simply misogynistic.
