Misogyny: internalised & ingrained
Girl, Other Woman, Quotes, Truth, Fucking Snowflake, Thought, Feminism, Special Fucking, Feminist
#feminism I used to be that girl but I understand now and I will never say that kind of thing about myself or other women again.
This is complete truth. Women need to stop putting other women down because they think and act differently. It should be a blessing to have so many different perspectives to learn from each other, rather than to assume someone is less than you for the way they handle their own life.
Stop stereotyping other women. It's internalized misogyny. #feminism This was one of the the biggest a-ha moments for me, as a feminist.
I always thought that women who hated other women were one epiphany away from feminism. They grew up outside of the arbitrary, social construction of what women are supposed to be. They identify women as the source of this construct they failed to conform to. They just need to realize that what they hate isn't women, it's sexism.
"Now please stop claiming that you don’t act like a woman. It doesn’t make a special fucking snowflake. It makes you a perpetrator of misogyny."
Bleeding Feminism: Internalized Misogyny: "I'm Not Like Most Girls!" ~ ~ This is so important! Why do so many women (including me, I'm sad to admit) think and say that, in general, we don't like other women and/or we're not like other women. This is why it's a harmful attitude to have.
A quote showing that the stereotyping of women by other women promotes misogyny. (observation)
SAYING YOU HATE OTHER WOMEN DOESN'T MAKE YOU A SPECIAL FUCKING SNOWFLAKE. i love it.
Preach! "Swear to God, I can't stand to hear a woman claim that she thinks like a guy and hates women because they're all catty. That's misogyny. The very fact that you, as a woman, think differently than how a socially-stereotyped woman is supposed to think is proof that our gender "norms" are fucking us over. Women are not all alike. Some of us like football. Some of us like talking on the phone. Some of us like religion. Some of us are emotional. Some of us speak three languages. Some of us have boyfriends. Some of us have girlfriends. Some of us wear lipstick. Some of us don't shave our pits. Some of us have kids. Some of us worry we'll drop our best friend's baby. Now please stop claiming that you don't act like a woman. It doesn't make you a special fucking snowflake. It makes you a perpetrator of misogyny. #feminism
"A huge part of being a feminist is giving other women the freedom to make choices that you might not necessarily make yourself."

It's about all women.

You must remember, it isn't about all men are menaces to women, it's about all women have been menaced by men. #Yesallwomen
Women making a statement for themselves is not the same as women making a statement against men.
#YesAllWomen Sadly, I recently had to have this conversation with a wonderful person in my life who complained that I "always talk about feminist shit, and (he's) tired of being blamed for what other men do." If you don't do it it's not about you. It's about me, all the other women, and the men who do this crap. It's about every group that is marginalized and mistreated by certain segments of society. For the record, he totally got it.
Not all men are a menace to women, but all women have been menaced by men.
New trending #YesAllWomen reiterates this point nicely
#yesallwomen I couldn't have said it better
Food for thought
Yes all women.
If it's not a "war" on women, the lack of pro-women legislation, often supported by the female legislators controlled by the far right, indicates maybe its a last hurrah for the misogynistic, terrified, cabal of the ultra-rich trying to maintain their hold on American society. Even at the risk if standing up an fake but powerful evangelical version of a US Taliban.
The war on women

So i am going to take it that the large woman's shelters,crisis centers,law enforcement (pro woman) and other govt. based entity's,are NOW anti woman? why do i get the feeling that more and more woman are either weak or regret getting to vote and other progress they have made? its really a shame. In all,this is an image to show female *dominated* areas. It shows progress made by feminism in domination throughout the country. even then,this is incorrect.
The website that's linked has some interesting facts on feminism.
The GOP war on women is quite real. VOTE Blue to fight back!

A Life Revealed Her eyes have captivated the world since she appeared on our cover in 1985. The story behind "Afghan Girl." By Cathy Newman Photograph by Steve McCurry
"Afghan girl" photo was taken by Steve McCurry at a Pakistan refugee camp and was ran on the cover of the National Geographic magazine in June 1985. Her name is Sharbat Gula and she is a member of the Pashtun tribe, now living in Tora Bora, Afghanistan. The second photo is of Sharbat 17 years later.
Then and now. Sharbat Gula, or more famously known throughout the world as the Afghan Girl. A team from National Geographic Television & Film's EXPLORER found the Afghan girl depicted in the famous photograph by Steve McCurry, after seventeen years. Time and hardship have erased her youth. Her skin looks like leather. The geometry of her jaw has softened. The eyes still glare; that has not softened.

Her eyes are sea green. They are haunted and haunting, and in them you can read the tragedy of a land drained by war. She became known around National Geographic as the "Afghan girl," and for 17 years no one knew her name. Sharbat Gula. Your eyes are the window to your soul. A picture tells 1000 words.
