Lesbians are at risk. If straight feminists can rally for each other, why can’t they do the same for lesbians? Straight feminists need to ask themselves why 44 years after Betty Friedan declared war on the “lavender menace,” that’s the one tenet of second-wave feminism that straight feminists seem determined to defend.
"I’m a feminist, but…"
An anonymous Twitter user became a hero this week by solving the case of a brutal, homophobic gang assault on a young gay couple in Philadelphia that left the two hospitalized.
On the night of Sept. 11, the couple was cornered, verbally harassed and beaten into the hospital by a dozen or so “young, clean-cut” and apparently very drunk white men and women in their early 20s. As the pair were attacked, the gang repeatedly jeered them as “faggots” and even stole one of their wallets. NBC News reports that the couple’s resulting injuries were gruesome
and that is why feminism needs to focus less on media representation and more on social/economic policies that damages women and children because you end up feminists who are more outraged about a woman whose cellulite is being mocked but not outraged about that same woman supporting a destructive regime that is literally kills women and children
I was in love with this boy once so I started to beat him up everyday but people thought we were rough housing bc boys can’t like each other and one day I was like “dude I like you a lot but I can’t cope with my feelings so I beat you up im sorry” and he was like “dude that’s really chill we can hold hands if you want??? Btw you have really good punches.” And that’s the story of how I had my first boyfriend
that was wild from start to finish
