It's Time for White Feminists to Stop Talking About Solidarity and Start Acting

“To be feminist is to be aware of our interconnected struggle as women, but to also see that not every struggle is our own. Use your voice as a privileged white woman to shout down racism wherever you see it. Be thankful that you will never know the sickening lurch that sways through your blood when your humanity is denounced and denied because of your race by women who profess to care about all women’s liberation. The title feminist is to be taken up by women who have moved beyond a selfish view of one’s relationship to society, an outlook that is nurtured and encouraged by the neo-liberal matrix we find ourselves struggling to survive in. It is difficult to throw off no doubt, but we can and we must. In her speech “The Transformation of Silence Into Language and Action,” Audre Lorde spoke of how she was doing her work to dismantle the binds of this sick sad world and questioned her sisters, ‘…are you doing yours?’”

When I first found feminism, I championed feminists like Moran - on this blog, even - as I’m sure some of you will remember. Speaking now, I’m sorry that, in my blind ignorance, I did. It’s bothered me for quite some time now.

To be feminist is to learn every day. The above article is insightful, eloquent and intelligent. Please read it.

Your cat calls are not appealing so i will say this in the most polite way possible. Would You Kindly Fuck Off!


i need this in my life SO badly.

sodapapi:

but why do white people want to say the n-word.. do you realize it was used pretty much every time a black person was beaten, lynched, murdered, raped, whipped, or mistreated by white people, shouldn’t that be enough to keep it out of your mouth? And you have the privilege of always having your voice heard over everyone else, why cant you give up this one word? ?

men are violent against women, and when women point this out, they are threatened with more violence

Male fantasies, male fantasies, is everything run by male fantasies? Up on a pedestal or down on your knees, it’s all a male fantasy: that you’re strong enough to take what they dish out, or else too weak to do anything about it. Even pretending you aren’t catering to male fantasies is a male fantasy: pretending you’re unseen, pretending you have a life of your own, that you can wash your feet and comb your hair unconscious of the ever-present watcher peering through the keyhole, peering through the keyhole in your own head, if nowhere else. You are a woman with a man inside watching a woman. You are your own voyeur.

And I encourage every POC to please send a selfie to scouting@lordeinc.com, we’re always looking for more and more faces 

katsplanet:

all men are responsible. all men are necessary to dismantle sexism. all men have to check their thoughts and behaviors. all men should enter male spaces and speak up for the rights of women when their peers do not. ALL men. do not give me this “not all men” bullshit because if you are silent and only care about your feelings instead of fighting for women then you /are/ one of those men. saying “not all men” lets men think that they arent involved with the issue when they are
