Anti-feminists: Feminists can’t just decide that other women are feminists. It’s disrespectful!

Anti-feminists: This woman said something I dislike. See how awful all feminists are?

Feminists can’t just decide that other women are feminists. It’s disrespectful!”

That’s true, you don’t get to force a label onto people who don’t want to be associated with it. How would you like it if an MRA said you have to identify as one because they also believe in supporting equality for both genders? I’m sure most Feminists would not take kindly to having another label forced on them. But it’s advocating what they already believe in, so what’s the problem, right?

This woman said something I dislike. See how awful all feminists are?”

Yeah, people are going to generalise all Feminists when they constantly see Feminists saying/doing the same crap all the time. Just like Feminists generalise all anti-Feminists as being a bunch of misogynistic MRAs. People generalise others all the time, I’m guilty of doing it myself, it’s not a one-sided thing.

But the main point I want to make is how are these sentences even related to each other? Are you attempting to make anti-Feminists appear hypocritical? If that is case then you have failed because each sentence addressed 2 very different scenarios that in no way portray a hypocritical standpoint.

  • Anti self-diagnosis types:

    You cannot possibly know anything about your own body, life and experiences! Only a doctor can diagnose you! If you don't have an official diagnosis from a professional then you're just making it up!

  • Anti self-diagnosis types:

    You don't behave how I think you should, it doesn't take a doctor to know you're OBVIOUSLY self-diagnosed.

  • Anti-feminists:

    Feminists can't just decide that other women are feminists. It's disrespectful!

  • Anti-feminists:

    This woman said something I dislike. See how awful all feminists are?

The Angry Black Woman is a racist trope used to deny black women their humanity. Black women aren’t allowed to be complicated — they’re just angry. Black women aren’t allowed to be upset or vulnerable — they’re just angry. Black women are not allowed justifiable reactions to the myriad of bullshit — racist, sexist and otherwise — that they face. Oh, you know those black ladies are just so angry all the time.

periodic reminder that:

  • there are lots of reasons why someone might use a wheelchair
  • plenty of wheelchair users are able to walk or stand to some small degree
  • plenty of wheelchair users have fluctuating conditions that mean that their mobility needs and ability changes day by day
  • "wheelchair-bound" is an ableist phrase
  • it’s not appropriate to ask someone why they’re using a wheelchair unless you have a specific need for that information
  • you should never push someone’s wheelchair without permission

HEY THIN PEOPLE

If you want to be part of the body positive community

I’m going to need you to come collect your fatphobic, health shaming thin buddies when they attack/harass/degrade fat people

and not just speak up when nicki minaj talks about fat asses

because I really don’t hear much out of you when this shit goes down, and it’s VERY telling

White Feminists are hilarious. They’ll make post after post angry at White dudes for refusing to examine anything and dismissing criticism as “reading too much into things”, but Emma Watson questions whether Beyonce is doing feminism right and suddenly we can’t say she’s saying Beyonce isn’t really a feminist because she didn’t EXPLICITLY say those exact words.

Of course Emma Wats*n is another white feminist who feels the need to say that Beyonce isn’t a feminist.

Since white feminists are coming in the notes and saying that I am needlessly pointing out an issue that doesn’t deserve merit the issue and am too busy targeting white people, I will respond here. The issue is that Wats*n doesn’t explicitly say that Beyonce isn’t a feminist but she says that in her music videos for her visual album she says that

on the one hand she is putting herself in a category of a feminist, the camera, it felt very male, such a male voyeuristic experience of her

which is illustrating that Beyonce, a woman who has at least ten years on her with years of experience in the public eye from a young age, has apparently no control over her image. Frankly that is very insulting to Beyonce since Wats*n is saying that Beyonce isn’t in control of her image when really if there’s one thing central to her, it’s how much she is in complete control of her image and presentation because she’s that savvy and smart. It reeks of ‘well you tried but you’re still not good enough’ which Tavi immediately responded to by saying that in fact “I felt that she was in control of it” after doing meticulous research.
