I know that there's been a spectrum of responses to Lily Allen's 'feminism'. But what do you make of her naming her album title 'Sheezus' as in reference to Kanye West's 'Yeezus'. A lot of people are congratulating her for this troll but do you think it is problematic?
I love it when someone does something problematic, and WOC say “that’s really messed up” their defenders say “you don’t understand! Stop being divisive”
Then they do something else five minutes later and WOC have to sit back as it all happens again and no one listens.
Lily Allen can sit on her mountain of good intentions with the feminist flag, but it’s blatantly obvious that the message she continues to send is that the modern woman’s oppression is connected to a black culture she doesn’t understands, misrepresents and continuously mocks over and over.
It’s a whole school of thought
I saw this cute girl at a coffee shop sitting all alone and I came up to her and asked her what she was drinking she told me “That’s none of your business” bitch I was trying to be fucking romantic and find love at a coffee shop
Fuck you and your fucking coffee
GIRL DRINKING COFFEE ALONE MUST NEED MAN
I WILL BE THAT MAN
I WILL BE HERO
GIRL REJECT ME
GIRL HAVE NO RIGHT TO DO THAT
GIRL IS BITCH AND I HATE HER
I AM ROMANTIC WHY GIRLS NOT LOVE ME
Who or What do you think makes the 'ideal' feminist?
I don’t like the idea that there is an ideal way to be a feminist. Mainly for the “real feminists keep their last name, don’t ascribe to beauty standards, should have read my entire intro to feminist theory syllabus” camp.
But when thinking about what type of feminist voices I like to see more of, the ones that check their biases/privileges, don’t speak over marginalized groups, and challenge dominant culture
what is so wrong about the statement “we are all the human race”
“Since the notion that we should all forsake attachment to race and/or cultural identity and be “just humans” within the framework of white supremacy has usually meant that subordinate groups must surrender their identities, beliefs, values, and assimilate by adopting the values and beliefs of privileged-class whites, rather than promoting racial harmony this thinking has created a fierce cultural protectionism.”

"One of the huge cultural problems we have is we don’t delineate between sexuality, which is normal and healthy and unfolds over the life cycles, and sexualization, or the hypersexualization of our girls."

"The rage of the oppressed is never the same as the rage of the privileged."
The Alnwick Poison Garden is pretty much what you’d think it is: a garden full of plants that can kill you (among many other things). Some of the plants are so dangerous that they have to be kept behind bars. [x]
