Men don’t care if you write incendiary messages of revolt all over your naked body, as long as they get to see that body. When they hear you call yourself a slut, they won’t know that you’re being ironic and that you’ve reclaimed the word. And they won’t care, because irony is just another flavor of appeasement. They’ll call you a slut in a totally non-ironic, non-reclaimed way. And they’ll insist that insulting you is okay because you’re doing it to yourself.
We all have to appease in one way or another to survive, but let’s not confuse that behavior with feminist activism. It’s not. Let’s do as little of it as we can get away with, and as much resistance as we are capable of.
white feminism be like
*puts glitter in vagina*
*takes pics of pink dildos*
*photoshops fruits onto genital area*
*takes pictures of menstrual blood trickling down thighs or of a pad*
*”shocking” nudes of a cis, thin, white woman*
*not shaving as a tactical FCK YOU to men*
**puts grapefruit on my pussy and takes a picture of it for my zine**
**gets a yeast infection**
