Reject the notion that you have to “contribute” to a capitalist society in order to deserve food, water, and shelter.
A human being’s worthiness of basic necessities should not be determined by their capacity to produce profit for corporations.
How else are you gonna determine who gets stuff? Just give it away?
The things people need to survive? Basic necessities which are produced in abundance? Absolutely those be should be given away. Food, water, housing, and health care should be guaranteed and no price within a society that produces enough for everyone (as ours does)
a quarter of ~7 year old girls have already tried dieting and all you sociopaths have to say for yourselves is “b-b-but men have it just as hard!”
I really wish radical feminists would stop using the phrase sex work/sex workers when talking about prostitution and prostituted women. Countless exited women have objected the term as white-washing the oppression they faced as merely work like any other (one of many examples can be heard here), and is a framing that only helps those who benefit the most from the legitimization of the sex industry, pimps and johns.
If a gay woman keeps her sexual identity secret while she’s single in order to avoid discrimination, we don’t accuse her of co-opting straight privilege – we sympathize with her for feeling the need to closet herself. So why the double standard for bisexuals?
It might not apply to you, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t straight-looking femme lesbians, or androgynous-looking, rainbow-wearing, alternative-haircut-having bisexuals. My point is that that comment oversimplifies and overgeneralizes things in a way that seems unreasonable to me. — Chandra on Autostraddle (via my-drop-is-full-of-tree-branches)
It is now 3 weeks since Michael Brown was murdered by Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson. Officer Darren Wilson still has not been arrested, charged, or even brought to prison or court for the murder of Michael Brown.
