feminist killjoy reporting for duty



girls aren’t “easy”, girls don’t have difficulty levels. some girls like sex and some girls don’t. you aren’t winning anything by getting either of them to sleep with you.

Some girls only want sex after emotional closeness develops, but to call this “difficulty” says some really disturbing shit about what you think emotional closeness is for.

I don’t chase anyone anymore. Wanna walk out of my life, there’s the door. Hell, I’ll even hold it for you.

Never make fun of someone who speaks broken English.
It means they know another language.

I’m not gonna sit around and waste my precious divine energy trying to explain and be ashamed of things you think are wrong with me.

You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you — it’s something inherent.

You exist, and therefore, you matter. You’re allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You’re allowed to assert your needs and take up space. You’re allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough. And you’re allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise.

how come cis people get pronouns and everybody else gets “preferred” pronouns  




and every major hollywood film starring Native American characters, played by non-native actors


if as a gender-nonconforming heterosexual woman—especially a feminist one—your initial reaction to being called a “dyke” by some shitty man is to become hyper-defensive about your straightness, you may need to examine whether you stand closer to the blatantly homophobic dude or your lesbian sisters.

The commodification of Otherness has been so successful because it is offered as a new delight, more intense, more satisfying than normal ways of doing and feeling. Within commodity culture, ethnicity becomes spice, seasoning that can liven up the dull dish that is mainstream white culture.






Orale, Cabrones. Yo, I hope this shuts up the bigoted pie-holes of Americans claiming, “BUH DAH ILEGAHLZ TAK AR JOBZ!”  El inmigrante has long been the scapegoat to this country’s economic woes, distracting us from the real problem—corporate America. Capitalism needs its immigrant to profit, and white supremacy insures that it is the brown man who’s going to be exploited for that monetary gain.

So here you go:

the fact that General Electric, despite making $14.2 billion in profits, paid zero U.S. taxes in 2010. General Electric actually received tax credits of $3.2 billion from American taxpayers.


[M]any undocumented immigrants, who are typically accused of taking advantage of the system while not contributing to it by many on the right, paid $11.2 billion in taxes. A new study by the Institute for Taxation and Economic Policy shows that undocumented immigrants paid $8.4 billion in sales taxes, $1.6 billion in property taxes, and $1.2 billion in personal income taxes last year. 

Xenophobic America, you may sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up. 


Cultures that endorse modesty and cultures that endorse hypersexualization are the *same* thing. Both define female sexuality by how it relates to the male gaze. In both cases the female body exists as an ornament either to be kept carefully hidden or put on display. Neither is an empowering feminist achievement.
