That is all.
Except for the transphobia thing, some areas of feminism are pretty transphobic. As with many movements, there are always small factions that let the side down. Just because some people in a movement act/believe a certain way, doesn’t mean that’s true for all involved. It’s like how not all Christians are fundamentalist evangelicals, and not all who practice Islam are terrorists. That’s what this was pointing at, because not all feminists are transphobic, though some, unfortunately, are.
IMO, the motivation behind feminism should be equality in all areas, for everyone, period. My philosophy, everyone deserves to do whatever the hell they want, as long as their actions don’t take away from the freedoms of others, and respect the way other people use their freedom, even if you don’t agree with it.
There are so many who have no respect for others as equal human beings. It will be the downfall of us all.
H/T The Riot
I haven’t had a guest post since forever. In fact I’ve only ever had one (on Sexuality and the Sex-Positive Community by my friend Alexis) and that was back in February 2011. Nearly two whole years ago!
So, I’m pretty keen in seeing if anyone would like to compose a guest post for me, or participate in a collaboration. The topics I’d be interested in are pretty broad:
- queer theory and LGBTQ rights
- experiences with sexuality and sexual/gender identity
- polyamory and non-monogamous/non-traditional relationships
- mental health
- social history (any era, though my area of study is modern world)
- Woman’s rights
I would love to talk to anyone who’d like to join me. You can email me, leave a message on my Facebook Page, or @ me on Twitter.

You can find the background and Idiot/Savant’s thoughts here:
No Right Turn: Institutionalised misogyny in the UK.
Cause, you know, there’s only one way of acting when you’re a victim. If you act any other way, then you’re obviously lying. You made it all up, and were never a victim at all.
I mean, why wouldn’t you tell the authorities that you were withdrawing the charges because the accused and his family were threatening you? Oh, I don’t know.. maybe because they were threatening you!?
Privilege, you’re doing it right, unfortunately.
