How pornographers describe their own videos.
Sorry to wreck your day.

Oh wow this is so empowering!

This is violent misogyny, folks.

And racism.


one of the scariest parts of this is the use of “you” to personalize it, like this is something the men watching should relate to and desire. which they do. if that’s not terrifying i don’t know what is

Yup. Rebecca Whisnant noted this in her lecture at the SPC Boston conference this month. It’s one of their techniques.

[Dan] Savage, along with several Slate commenters, argues that kinksters have to be free to organize overtly so they can identify and police abuse within their ranks. That’s a good argument. But it acknowledges the problem: Kink requires policing in a way that homosexuality doesn’t. “First playdates should be in public,” warns one Slate commenter. “Play at clubs with event monitors,” advises another. Such guidance would be unnecessary, even rude, if it were dispensed generally to gay men or lesbians. But among BDSM educators, it’s common sense.

Many Slate commenters compare S&M with martial arts, skydiving, or driving cars. They argue that the latter are more dangerous, and therefore objections to S&M are just about sex. But these analogies break down. If you deliberately seek pain or injury during a skydive, you won’t be allowed to go up for another jump. If you drop your guard during a judo match and asked to be struck, you’ll be removed. If you walk into traffic and stand in front of an oncoming car, you’ll be taken in for questioning and psychiatric treatment. The problem isn’t sex. The problem is the intentional pursuit of harm.

— William Saletan, All The Kink’s Men: Is S&M wrong? A reply to Dan Savage and other defenders of BDSM [X] (via witchbornwitch)

Well Dan Savage is an entitled woman hating asshole with severe mouth diarrhea, so taking his advice or pretending his stupid male opinions are worth more than dirty toilet paper is always folly. Is anyone actually surprised that the privileged white man endorses practices that dehumanize, humiliate and objectify womens bodies while pretending torture can be consented to?

liberal social justice is saying “don’t discriminate against poor people” instead of “why are people poor in the fucking first place”

My mistrust [of men] is not, as one might expect, primarily a result of the violent acts done on my body, nor the vicious humiliations done to my dignity. It is, instead, born of the multitude of mundane betrayals that mark my every relationship with a man—the casual rape joke, the use of a female slur, the careless demonization of the feminine in everyday conversation, the accusations of overreaction, the eye rolling and exasperated sighs in response to polite requests to please not use misogynist epithets in my presence.

A white boy stopped me on the street today and asked me if he could have a coupon for panda express. I knocked his phone out of his hand and kicked it against a wall.

The big lie about capitalism is that everyone can be rich. That’s impossible. Capitalism works only if the vast majority of the population are kept poor enough to never quit working, are kept poor enough to accept distasteful jobs society cannot function without. If everyone were a millionaire, who would empty the trash or repair the sewers? It follows that the poorer the general population is made, the greater the worth of the money held by the wealthy, in terms of the lives which may be bought and sold with it. — Michael Rivero

cool-daniela-fan asked: What does "gender criticism" consist of?

radfemale:

This post is a very detailed description of radical feminism’s stance on gender criticism. 

This article in the New Yorker simplifies the ‘gender feud’ between radical feminism and trans activism.

This quote displays how offensive males ‘identifying’ with females due to ‘femininity’ is.

This is my interpretation of what gender criticism is, my interpretation of what other radfems say about it, and my beliefs surrounding the idea too.

Also, feel free to check out my gender tag, which has a lot more reblogs, thoughts and ideas!
