Boy’s eye view.
The irony is that these are all white cis women who really have very little reason not to be feminists since that movement has always catered to them
Ummm “that’s too strong”? How ridiculous that all these women are rejecting the concept of feminism because it has a “negative connotation”. Like sorry but feminism isn’t for your reputation, it’s for the whole of womankind.
From what I can tell, these are three wealthy white cis het women who fit western beauty standards. It’s unsurprising that their nearly negligible amount of oppression can’t outweigh their selfishness.
I…I dunno… I don’t know anymore.

so this has 4,450 more notes than i was expecting…
I was going to apologize for making “another one of those” posts; but then I remembered how many of those “feel sorry for cis people!!” comics there are and how they have SO MUCH MORE notes than informative and trans sympathetic posts so. I’m not apologizing for this.
- singular “they” is grammatically correct, no matter what your high school english teacher says
- don’t be afraid to question your own gender identity and don’t let people guilt trip you about it (additionally, being nb and not minding gendered pronouns is an acceptable comfort)
- why you should respect people’s pronouns and identities (and not be a rude asswipe about it)
- re: hate and social justice | re: generalizing oppressors and social justice
- the trans housing network !
- some good points if you’re cis
- "but none of my trans / queer / any other oppressed group is mean to me in real life, it’s just mean people on tumblr!"
- penises and vaginas and chromosomes have nothing to do with gender fyi
- there’s no such thing as being “trans enough”
- protect transwomen at all costs
- petition to legally recognized nonbinary genders

Once you do something, you never forget. Even if you can’t remember.
When Lugo’s son Edwin Avellanet, 26, went outside to dispose of a bag of garbage, he was approached by police investigating a parking cone. Someone had placed a cone on the street to reserve a parking spot without city permission. Avellanet was stopped and questioned about the suspicious cone, but insisted that he had done nothing wrong.
Not accepting his denial, police demanded identification. Avellanet had nothing to show them. When he was grabbed by the arm by one of the uniformed bullies, he broke free and retreated into the house.
Avellanet went into the residence and closed the door. The NYPD did not take kindly to this, beating on the door, breaking through the windows, and forcing their way into the home. Backup officers poured into the house.
Looking for Avellanet — the suspected cone placer — police went around breaking doors in half, attacking family members with pepper spray, and bludgeoning people with clubs.
“They threw me like a piece of garbage on the floor,” Evelyn Lugo said.
Her son, George Lugo, and family friend Luis Ortega were attacked repeatedly with a baton and suffered severe facial injuries.
Evelyn Lugo’s daughter, Alba Cuevas, was attacked with chemical pepper spray and retreated into a bathroom when she started suffering from an asthma attack. Police ripped her out and arrested her.
As officers stormed the house, they knocked a birdcage off of a dresser. The small green parakeet, Tito, was flung helplessly from the cage, landing on the floor. NY Daily News reported what happened next:
“I screamed, ‘The bird!’ ” Lugo’s daughter Anna Febles told the Daily News, “and he said, ‘F— the bird,’ and he, like, stepped on it.” “I was shocked,” Febles, 30, said. “It was a blue and green bird. It was really pretty.”
This is just another day in the life of being surrounded by NYPD. People are gonna try to dispute that it was his fault because he ran away, but when you’re living while brown in NYC, you run from the cops like you’re running from a murderer because they can assault/kill your ass without cause and you still get in trouble for their bs.
Burn them at the fucking stake.
