    LOL because having a radical view of gender is “transphobic”. The concept of cis privilege comes from white western academia and yes it is insulting to say being socialized to be subordinate is a privilege. Big ups to Rachel Ivey for the bravery to speak on this matter. Shame to see Feministing contribute to the [...]

    Yes characteristics attributed to specific genders can be found in anyone regardless of genitalia. However gender is a social construct and a class system.

    “I strongly disagree. The world is not black and white and objectification means different things to different people.”

Im not going to celebrate women being CEO’s given them the right to oppress the poor. Im not going to celebrate lgb people being allowed to serve in the military and carry out US hegemony/imperialism. I [...]

    ^^^Agreed. It doesnt say war on ALL women but a war on women, which isnt to say women who are unable to have children are not women. The fact is the majority of women can get pregnant and deliver babies. I dont see how its necessary to preface every time we talk about the war [...]

    On a side note, yay for there being more biracial people in 2050… if only 3.0%. I’m shocked that it isn’t at least 5% now.
