Dear Tumblr Pals,
We’re kind of new around these here Tumblr parts and, well, we feel like it would be rude to show up to a party without a gift.
So, as a gift to you, we’d like to offer you a $2 credit towards MP3s at Amazon MP3.
Here’s what you have to do:
Antifemininity is misogynist. What you are saying when you engage in this type of rhetoric is that you think things traditionally associated with women are wrong. Which is misogynist. By telling feminine women that they don’t belong in the feminist movement, you are reinforcing the idea that to be feminine and a woman is wrong, that women who want to be taken seriously need to be more masculine, because most people view gender presentation in binary ways. This rewards the ‘one of the boys’ type rhetoric I encounter all over the place from self-avowed feminists who seem to think that bashing on women is a good way to prove how serious they are when it comes to caring about women and bringing men into the feminist movement.” — Get Your Anti-Femininity Out Of My Feminism by s.e. smith (via nerdiestofbears)
