mad about

"It’s the woman’s movement. Woman are demanding things. “Give me things! Do things to me! Do exotic things and plenty of them. Tonight, I think I’ll have multiple orgasms”. And I go fucking hell, what? What’s that? “Go for it my boy! Plenty of orgasms, I’ll tell you when to stop”. No sooner had we found the clitoris that we were in search of the g-spot. I don’t think you could find that with a wet suit and a divers helmet. I know gynaecologists that don’t believe in it. You see it’s difficult to be a man. I mean the mens movement in America is taking the country by storm. Right, people and all meeting, but you see films of the woman’s movement… “We want this! And that. We demand a share in that, and most of that, some of this and fucking all of that. Less of that, more of this and fucking plenty of this. And another thing we want it now. I want it yesterday and I want fucking more tomorrow. And the demands will all be changed then so fucking stay awake.”"

There’s nothing wrong with disengaging! Sometimes it can be the only option or the healthiest option. 

I know this specific question wasn’t directed at me, but I do often receive similar questions. I totally agree with the friendlyangryfeminist’s response here. Disengaging is sometimes the best action.
It can be a from of self-care. If you want to be in this thing for the long run - because sexism, misogyny, etc. aren’t going away overnight - you have to pace yourself, know when to choose your battles (for your own sake), and disregard the asshats whose only goal is to continue to hurt you… through engagement.

"Queerness, to me, is about far more than homosexual attraction. It’s about a willingness to see all other taboos broken down. Sure, many of us start on this path when we first feel “same sex” or “same gender” attraction (though what is sex? And what is gender? And does anyone really have the same sex or gender as anyone else?). But queerness doesn’t stop there. This is a somewhat controversial stance, but to me queer means something completely different than “gay” or “lesbian” or “bisexual.” A queer person is usually someone who has come to a non-binary view of gender, who recognizes the validity of all trans identities, and who, given this understanding of infinite gender possibilities, finds it hard to define their sexuality any longer in a gender-based way. Queer people understand and support non-monogamy even if they do not engage in it themselves. They can grok being asexual or aromantic. (What does sex have to do with love, or love with sex, necessarily?) A queer can view promiscuous (protected) public bathhouse sex with strangers and complete abstinence as equally healthy. Queers understand that people have different relationships to their bodies. We get what it means to be stone. We know what body dysphoria is about. We understand that not everyone likes to get touched the same way or to get touched at all. We realize that people with disabilities may have different sexual needs, and that people with survivor histories often have sexual triggers. We can negotiate safe and creative ways to be intimate with people with HIV/AIDs and other STIs. Queers understand the range of power and sensation and the diversity of sexual dynamics. We are tops and bottoms, doms and subs, sadists and masochists and sadomasochists, versatiles and switches. We know what we like and don’t like in bed. We embrace a wide range of relationship types. We can be partners, lovers, friends with benefits, platonic sweethearts, chosen family. We can have very different dynamics with different people, often all at once. We don’t expect one person to be able to fulfill all our diverse needs, fantasies and ideals indefinitely. Because our views on relationships, sex, gender, love, bodies, and family are so unconventional, we are of necessity anti-assimilationist. Because under the kyriarchy we suffer, and watch the people we love suffering, we are political. Because we want to survive, we fight. We only want the freedom to be ourselves, love ourselves, love each other, and live together. Because we are routinely denied that, we are pissed. Queer doesn’t mean “don’t label me,” it means “I am naming myself.” It means “ask me more questions if you curious” and in the same breath means “fuck off.”"

"If a man “loses” a modesty debate, nothing about his life changes. If a man “wins” a modesty debate, nothing about his life changes. But if a woman loses a modesty debate, the entire fabric of her existence changes. If a woman loses a modesty debate, she has lost whole areas of freedom in her life. She now has more things to worry about not doing so that men will not get aroused. There is no such thing as an “objective” argument in which the stakes are astronomical for one side and nonexistent for the other. Furthermore, by even accepting modesty as a valid area of concern for women, you have accepted a premise that defines women by their looks and objectifies them. Women have already lost the moment a modesty debate begins."

becauseiamawoman:

Wahhhh, I want these books so bad! I want a million books though. If anybody has these books and would like to trade for some goodies, let me know!

1. You are beautiful. Not just because of what you look like, but because you’re here today against all odds. 

2. You never need to apologize for doing the right thing for yourself. There’s a difference between being selfish and making sure that you are safe, happy, and loved.

3. You never owe anyone anything. Not sex, not a relationship, not a friendship, nothing past basic civility (unless they’re completely cut off, which is also your choice). Don’t feel bad for needing to cut off toxic friends. Don’t feel selfish for leaving a relationship you’re not happy in. You don’t need any more of a reason than it’s best for you. 

4. Having sex (and liking it) does not make you a bad person. You aren’t damaging some abstract, antiquated idea of purity because you’re having fun. Just, please be safe!

5. You don’t have to dress to please anyone but yourself. Feel like wearing your combat boots with a floral dress and a Cosby sweater? Go for it! You’re not there to make anyone else happy. 

6. There probably is no God. And that’s a good thing. Free yourself from the binds of the past and look to the stars. There’s so much meaning in the world without having to get up early on Sunday and feeling bad about yourself. Live for today. 

7.  Stop judging other women over the choices they make. Stop talking badly about other women. We’re all each other’s got. In this crazy patriarchal world, we need all the love and support we can get from each other. Who cares if she’s fat or homely or has a moustache? What does that have to do with you? You’re better than that, honey. 

8. Trust your feelings. Analyze them, but recognize, embrace, and trust them. All women are not irrational, psycho, crazy bitches. That’s a myth used to keep us quiet. Speak out. Get angry. Cry over weddings in commercials. Just feel. 

9. Your body hair is not any more shameful or disgusting or unhygienic than any man’s. Don’t shave if you don’t want to. Try it for a month. See what you like. 

10. Vanity is a social construct. Why would any woman need to apologize for loving herself? Love your skin, your hair, your thick thighs, your small boobs, your big boobs, your smile, your eyes, your hands, your jewelry, your clothes, your jokes, your neck, your tummy, yourself. Love it all. Embrace every “imperfection” as a declaration of just how fabulous you are. You don’t have to be “perfect” or even at your goal, if you’re trying to make a change, to love yourself and your body. It does some pretty amazing things.

11. Follow your passions with unabashed joy. Like knitting? My Little Pony? Reading SciFi? Then love the hell out of it and never apologize. 

12. You can ask for help. Your friends will be there for you, especially if you know how to ask effectively. You can’t be your best for anyone else if you can’t be your best for you. 

13. You can’t help how you feel about any given situation, only how you act and how you make others feel. There’s no use in beating yourself up for being jealous or upset or apathetic or sad. Accept the emotion, and follow it until you can be okay with it. 

14. Cooking is easy. Pick a few vegetables and a few cheeses you like and learn how to cook them. Then add any other ingredients you like. If you like everything going into the dish, you’ll probably like the dish!

15. Educate yourself. In every way that you can. Foster an insatiable curiosity within and feed it with knowledge. Read Wikipedia articles about things that interest you and keep clicking on suggested pages until you learn about something completely new. Take a new class. Follow an informative blog on tumblr. Listen to public radio. Learn about your own female anatomy. Read everything you can.

16. Read the ingredients on everything you buy. Can’t pronounce it? Consider a whole food instead. Good food in, good energy out.

17.  Put effort into a few strong relationships. Make a weekly dinner date or a two-person book club. Don’t let “busy” be an excuse.

18. Don’t accept anyone who puts you down. No real friend or lover would say things that make you feel bad or ask you to change. You are always good enough. You deserve to be surrounded by positivity.

19. Take a women’s studies class. Or at least read some elementary feminist literature. It’s empowering and eye-opening and can really help you learn to love yourself.

20. Watch documentaries. Science, politics, sex, drugs, food, anything. 

21. Use your words carefully. In an argument, it may mean the end of a friendship. In public, it may change the word. There is always a correct way to say whatever you want to say. You can let her down easy, you can show them you’re in charge, you can nail that interview, you can nail that hottie. Your words have power and you have power.

22. Every decision you make lets you create the person you want to be. Do everything with intention. Make your own choices. Let every bracelet on your wrist tell a story about you. Plaster your car in bumper stickers. Collect little knick knacks that mean something to you. Surround yourself with people who love you and aren’t afraid to show it. Get tattoos if you want. Shave half your head. Get a pet lizard. 

23. Do. Anything. You. Want. Dream, love, riot, cuddle, protest, cook, sew, shoot, edit, write, calculate, nurture, analyze, argue, cry, fight, walk, speak, sleep, sing, sweat, eat, read, make, do… just do it all on your terms and do it with passion. There will never be anyone remotely like you. We all descended from the explosions of suns, we are star stuff, and by the most improbable of improbabilities, we are here, and you are here, and it’s about damn time you celebrated every part of you because damnit, you’re special.
