Some people need to understand that feminism isn't about hating men or wanting to over power them, it's about wanting to walk down the street at night not having to constantly look over your shoulder, it's about wanting to be in control of our own bodies, wanting equal pay, wanting to not be told that we're too fat and it's unhealthy and we need to lose weight, wanting to feel safe, wanting to be able to dress up without being asked "who's the lucky fellow", as if you need a guy to be confident and look good, wanting to wear whatever the fuck we want without receiving harsh judgment, and wanting to go out in public and not be tormented and cat called by men who think it's a compliment, wanting to stop being told what you can and can't do because you're a woman, and so much more, like for transgender people it's as simple as just wanting to be accepted and being able to use the damn bathroom. Women, poc, lgbtq, we are not seen as equals to cis, straight white men and we sure as hell would like to be. This is what feminism is about. We are human beings not objects and we'd like to be seen and treated that way.
Pardon me for the blurry photo and for the gushing 😻: This is one of my faves. The babest. The smartest. The funniest. The most inspiring. The one and only, @hernameiskyl!
I hope to see Salt Lake come and support her Planned Parenthood FUNdraiser event on July 23 @beerbarslc #standwithpp
Up late thinking and this is on my mind. I wrote this earlier on one of my other social media accounts and I'm 💯 in my words. If you know me, then you know how passionate I am about women's rights.
Any attempt by a government -or any person- to declare themselves ultimately sovereign over the body or choices of another is an attempt to take away personhood. For anyone to try and take away the free wills of women is for them to say that women aren't autonomous; that they aren't people.
We cannot acknowledge or respect another's personhood unless we understand that, in ownership of said personhood, they possess the inherent right to bodily freedom and personal choices; whether or not we agree with those choices.
Anything less than such acknowledgment and acceptance is an unjust assault on basic human dignity and freedom.
