Susan B Anthony “A HIstory of US Feminisms” (via sourcedumal)
But WE abandoned THEM!
#WhiteFeministHeroes. But remind me why I am supposed to be a feminist again?
Jessica Valenti and Lena Dunham’s great-great grandma, y’all.
Wow. Fuck that.

posting bc FU to white savior bio spawn continually greasing up my inbox with tears of mayo “well if the current system of outright kidnapping child trafficking war-mongering womb-farming woman-raping literally genocidal fuckery that comprises the adoption industry than WHAT IS tell meeee how can i adopt”
Not my job to take time out from my invaluable resistance and survival to educate your oppressive, clueless asses
much less help procure for you an ACTUAL HUMAN BEING.

I would also like to mention that comparing PoC to queer people is stupid not only because queer PoC exist but also because for queer people there’s a name for announcing their identity. It’s called “coming out”.
There is no such term for PoC who wish to announce their ethnicity to white people because there is no such period. We get identified when we are born.

Dale Spender, Man Made Language. (via dumbledoreisabamf)
the feminist movement has supported wars (afghanistan to liberate the poor brown women, anyone?) and the cruel medical use of the bodies of women of color (history of how the pill was developed, anyone?) and the murder of trans women (the transsexual empire, anyone?) among other… failings, shall we say, to put it lightly
feminism as an institution has colluded with white supremacy, with heterosexism and cissexism, with ableist power structures, with imperialism to bring “liberation” to white, western, christian, cishet, abled, thin women at the expense of women who can’t climb that ladder and cling to any part of that power structure as easily as they can
anyone who feels that feminist is a dirty word because ~ew won’t the women just shut up~ is a misogynist, plain and simple. but to pretend that there is no reason to eschew the label of feminist erases the violence done to many women in the name of feminism.

“Matching and merit mattered, but eugenic alarm about the children available for adoption was the most important factor in the spread of placement-related (intelligence) testing. Children in need of new parents were, according to prevailing views, prone to very bad heredity.
Y’know, it’s probably worth mentioning that Goddard died in 1957 and the book that quote is from was written in 1912. Things have improved a little in the last hundred years.
I was going to toss out the hooty old hat (much more for the sake of all my new followers than you) and hyperlink the extensive writings on the obviously late Goddard and the living legacies of eugenics & racism on the contemporary adoption industry esp. as it adversely affects transracial & international adoptees to a lethal extent
but then I spotted this giant brainturd of yours (as I for one actually bother to perfunctorily click-through to see whom I’m addressing):
I find African-American culture uncomfortable to deal with and tend to stereotype people based on my perceptions of that culture. (Notably, I tend to assume that they’re hypersensitive about race and likely to be aggressively offended if I make even a minor misstep about it.) I’m mostly not actively working on this issue - I’m not particularly optimistic that I can make any more progress on it than I have - but I would certainly appreciate being called out if it seems to be affecting anything, and I’d welcome recommendations of resources that might be useful, too.
Translation: “I’m an anti-black tool and completely fucking complacent about it to boot, but yall should still educate me especially since I won’t expend any energy to stop wallowing in my own ignorance. don’t criticize, just gimme my cookie. p.s. I’m genderqueer and autistic and don’t give a fuck about the countless other people who are as well but also have to deal with racist bullshit that I perpetuate on top of everything as I’m too cowardly to face POC not as a scary monolith but actual PEOPLE who don’t lead single-issue lives”
Given that a simple google search on resources is apparently beyond you, lol not much point in me hyperlinking now is there?

i want you all to go and search “asian women” in the tags. and see that arari and i are literally the only posts in there that aren’t photos fetishizing asian women. and then i want you to understand that this is the environment that korean adoptee women grow up in. and then i want you to think about why we have a very high rate of being victims of sexual abuse and sexual assault, from both family members and strangers. fuck.
edit: just went to the asian girls tag. whatthefuck. i haven’t been tagging my posts asian girls because i hate being called a girl when i am clearly a woman but i might have to start just to fucking infiltrate this shit.
We need to reclaim the tags.
