Feminist Allies

Intersectional feminism with men in mind.

I don’t want to get too excited before anything’s confirmed, but I’m getting pretty jazzed over the possibility of The Rock playing Captain Marvel.

a male feminist makes a joke about male feminists joking about male feminists to make themselves seem like unique special men who understand why male feminists can be awful. if no women are around to validate him did this really happen

Palestinian lady collects gas bombs fired by Israeli army. She grows flowers in these bombs.

I find this heartbreaking.

I waited in line to get a photo with Elizabeth Warren and was kicked out because I didnt have a book. I couldn’t afford it but thought I could get a photo since they were letting people with books take photos with her. When I was kicked out I said I couldn’t afford it and was almost out of the hall when an older man handed me a book and told me to go get a photo.

So here are my photos, including me pointing out how her book is close to what I spend each week on food and that I was kicked out of line for being too poor to afford it. I was also table to tell her to fight the “treat and reduce obesity act” that is being pushed by obesity alliance coalition to have Medicaid cover weight loss surgery and diet pills. It has financial ties to the makers of lap band, Allergan, and the director is the former policy director of glaxosmithkline. I’m kind of weepy but I told her I need access to food not weight loss.

WHAT DID SHE SAY?

She said that she would look into it and thanked me for bringing it to her attention. She seemed really interested in how it was backed by drug companies.

Not you! Beloved Legos! You are doing fine without needing to paste Shell all over your product. Unless of course you don’t believe the science of Climate Change which none of us can imagine. Please Lego, say it ain’t so, let us know you won’t be an advertising tool one of the most polluting companies in the world. 

We love you Lego. We don’t want to see you in a bad relationship.

We have to send a clear message just because your child gets across the border doesn’t mean your child gets to stay. We don’t want to send a message contrary to our laws or encourage more to come.

Hillary Clinton [WSJ]

So you send a message by keeping children in cells as if they were some kind of fucking dogs?

This is Clinton, your “feminist leader”. Fuck her.

Your fave is fucking garbage who doesn’t deserve to lead :)

Ew. Ew, ew, ew. And especially gross, given how it was Bill Clinton who proudly instituted NAFTA, which had a huge hand in destroying Mexican agricultural economy and making conditions worsen for all these children—to USA’s benefit! Give it a month or five and we’ll have to deal with her making stops at taco shops and using corny guacamole metaphors to show Mexican Americans how much she ‘gets’ us. 

Clear message, indeed. And it is not missed by us.

Call for Panelists!

I’m going to be on a panel with a few other people at Geek Girl Con (in October) called “The Carol Corps and the Evolving Face of Fandom”. So far we’ve got some queer people of different genders, but we’ve reached out to some people of color and haven’t heard back.

We would…

"but white people need to stop reblogging this, like if you’re not directly effected by Netanyahu or Hamas, it isn’t your place to say ‘fuck Israel’ or ‘fuck Palestine"

Loll

Don’t talk about American war crimes if you’re not an Iraqi being killed. Don’t talk about homelessness if you’re not homeless. Don’t talk about prison industrial complex if you’re not in prison right now.
