    Challenging white supremacy is not racism
    Challenging patriarchy is not sexism
    Challenging disproportionate distribution of wealth is not classism

"One male poet approached me after a performance and said, “I don’t mean to be rude, but do you ever write about anything other than the struggles of women?” I replied, “I don’t mean to be rude, but take your finger off the trigger and I’ll stop.” After all, who among us ever wanted to speak about these things? What little girl dreams of growing up to write ‘rape poems?’ About violence? About the muffled voices of women worldwide?"

    A very strong message from the latest comic in the Oh Joy Sex Toy series.

    This is only an edit I made from the original comic - the art and the concept all belong to the awesome Erika Moen whose tumblr you can find here 

    Good example of taking a crop from my comics: Neko asked permission first and, most importantly, creditation was added directly to the image. Thank you!

  5. "Even if [Thelma and Louise] was the most man-bashing movie ever made, saying, ‘let’s all of us women get guns and kill men’, it wouldn’t even begin to make up for the 99% of movies where the women are there to be caricatured as bimbos or to be skinned and decapitated. If you’re feeling threatened, you’re sympathizing with the wrong character."

    the reason oppressed groups say “___ are awful” instead of “some ___ are awful” is because including the word “some” allows individuals of that group to detach themselves from the problem and shuck the blame off and say “well they arent really talking about me so i can ignore their opinions”, whereas stating that an entire group of oppressors is awful makes the individual think whether or not theyre included in the awfulness of that group and makes them consider their actions so thats why people say “men are awful” or “white people are awful” and if you take it personally you’re getting angry at the wrong people

    Life hack: if someone makes a racist/sexist joke, say, with total seriousness, “I don’t get it, can you explain it”

    Then watch them crash and burn

    "…And then I said, ‘go make me a sandwich!’ haw haw haw."

    "I don’t get it."

    "What’s not to get."

    "Why would she make you a sandwich?"

    "Because… She’s a girl."

    "You can’t make yourself a sandwich?"

    "I can make myself a sandwich."

    "Cool, go make me one too."

    yeah but, cartoon women, any drawn women, aren’t wearing those skimpy and sexual clothes out of choice, they’re wearing it because someone drew them that way, normally for a reason. so so don’t go “oh maybe she chooses to fight crime in a bikini and high heels” bc a man sat at a desk and decided she was gunna wear those clothes, for a reason, for the audience or his gaze. so no, its not slut shaming, its creepy man shaming
