Bad Feminist

Mapúsцитирует3 года назад
Feminism is a choice, and if a woman does not want to be a feminist, that is her right, but it is still my responsibility to fight for her rights

We have to be more interested in making things better than just being right, or interesting, or funny.

ike most people, I’m full of contradictions, but I also don’t want to be treated like shit for being a woman.

My favorite definition of “feminist” is one offered by Su, an Australian woman who, when interviewed for Kathy Bail’s 1996 anthology DIY Feminism, said feminists are “just women who don’t want to be treated like shit.”

e need more. We need pop culture that demonstrates not only the ways people are different but also the ways we are very much alike.

Feminism has given me peace. Feminism has given me guiding principles for how I write, how I read, how I live. I do stray from these principles, but I also know it’s okay when I do not live up to my best feminist self.

I’m more interested in a show called Grown Women about a group of friends who finally have great jobs and pay all their bills in a timely manner but don’t have any savings and still deal with sloppy love lives and hangovers on Monday morning at work.

I love being with someone who is endlessly interesting because we are so different. Wanting to belong to people or a person is not about finding a mirror image of myself.

Luck and loneliness, it would seem, are very compatible.

Movies, more often than not, tell the stories of men as if men’s stories are the only stories that matter

You don’t necessarily have to do anything once you acknowledge your privilege. You don’t have to apologize for it. You need to understand the extent of your privilege, the consequences of your privilege, and remain aware that people who are different from you move through and experience the world in ways you might never know anything about. They might endure situations you can never know anything about. You could, however, use that privilege for the greater good—to try to level the playing field for everyone, to work for social justice, to bring attention to how those without certain privileges are disenfranchised. We’ve seen what the hoarding of privilege has done, and the results are shameful.

My go-to explanation is “I am dating an asshole because I’m lazy.” You are welcome to borrow it.

This is the truth of my trouble with trigger warnings: there is nothing words on the screen can do that has not already been done. A visceral reaction to a trigger is nothing compared to the actual experience that created the trigger.

Just because you survive something does not mean you are strong.

College and kindergarten aren’t as different as you’d think.

Life, apparently, requires a trigger warning.
This is the uncomfortable truth: everything is a trigger for someone. There are things you cannot tell just by looking at someone.

So many of us are reaching out, hoping someone out there will grab our hands and remind us we are not as alone as we fear

When feminism falls short of our expectations, we decide the problem is with feminism rather than with the flawed people who act in the name of the movement
