Many women, I think, resist feminism because it is an agony to be fully conscious of the brutal misogyny which permeates culture, society, and all personal relationships.

If I could be so bold as to ask- what’s the big deal w/ being called #fat? Is it against the laws of human existence for a person to be called both beautiful & fat? Is that why I get messages from y’all requesting that I not call myself fat- because it’s somehow improbable for me to drop the F-bomb & value my physical appearance at the same time?
Nah, that’s some bullshit. Fat is fucking fierce. It’s time we all got on the same page. Say it loud- I’m fat and I’m proud.
Stay tuned for the first pose of the #SizeDoesntMatter #yoga challenge- I’ll post it later tonight!

We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.

But how many people reblogged this because John Stewart said it? A white dude says the same shit we have been FOREVER and now it’s all over and he’s being praised for telling it.

Protip: Black folks have been saying this forever, this is nothing new.

But we’re just angry and complaining and ignored. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad he said this but I’m tired of us saying this all the fucking time and getting dismissed.

But when a white person parrots the same shit we’ve been saying? It’s suddenly relevant.

Thank you! That very last thing he said has been floating around Twitter and Tumblr while he was on vacation and I’m sure a black woman said it. It’s almost word for word.

The bold is a PSA.
