MOST RECENT

My first long term relationship was a messed up ball of ‘will it be me or her’ that spanned 3 years of my life and ended with a broken heart, maybe my only broken heart. I’m glad to say I learned after that experience and took off onto the next few relationships knowing my worth (with a couple of slip ups I don’t regret). The first red flag back then was the ease with which “You’re not like other girls” and “You’re one of the good ones” were delivered. I can still feel the pride in my teenage face. No. Using language that disrespects others to compliment me is not cool bro. If I could go back I’d tell him to shove it. Any woman who lowered her standards to be with him is someone he needs to worship. #feminism #redflags #intersectionalfeminism #redflag #britishfeminism #ukfeminism #knowyourworth #sisterhood #letstalk

Via @chakabars. There are good men out there doing the work they need to to combat #toxicmasculinity, become better feminists and ultimately be allies to women, you can learn from their journey. Some of them are highlighted through this account and I hope to find more to showcase. That #menaretrash is a given here but the usage of it may become limited and for that I thank the patient men in my DMs. Men have a lot of work to do, but we have to recognise the society we live in does not give them easy access to the tools they need to do it. Yes. Sometimes I’m gonna let you learn here, sometimes I’m gonna make concessions for your space here. But this is not your place, you have no right to make demands here, your privilege keeps you apart and whilst I welcome your engagement - acknowledging this post is paramount. #feminism #malefeminist #intersectionalfeminism #britishfeminism #ukfeminism #maleprivilege #patriarchy #rapeculture #misogyny

So I’m happy to be back in part. But am heavily preggers now, babe due this week! So who knows what the posting will be like. I’m feeling great - as long as I’m allowed to wear this in the heat! Let’s go over the rules again! •Dissension in the ranks is fine as long as it’s respectful and doesn’t shit on anybody else’s rights.
•My DMs are a safe place, come with your unpopular opinions, your love letters, your rants, your offloads but don’t expect a reply.
•Block button happy as always - misogynist language, bigotry, sea lioning will get you blocked.
•Google is free - you should not expect a free education here, this is my journey through making my feminism more intersectional and engaging in the fourth wave.
•Men are welcome here, if and when you engage make sure you understand the next post.

As @lairdofash says in their caption, this totally applies to us here in the UK; as we look down our noses at what’s happening across the pond and think how much better our race relations are because of “gun control” we gotta sit up and think about our own gentrification of neighbourhoods in particular. White folk moving in an ‘upcycling’ an area (not my words but those of some hipster in a coffee shop this morning). I live in an area previously described as undesirable and am angry af when you suggest there’s a (righteous) owned versus rented divide in the community. I’m frustrated by your refusal to participate in community projects but yak to your friends about the farmers market once a month. Then your whispered conversations about poc in the area, or traveller children moving in and out of your schools or ‘behaviour’ from teens in the local parks. Is your life in danger when faced with people of your community? Stop. Think about again. Is your life in danger? No? Put the phone down Janice. This has been a PSA #blacklivesmatter #blmuk #gentrification #feminism #intersectionalfeminism #britishfeminism #ukfeminism #poc #stopcallingthepolice #instiutionalracism #racism #janice #psa

This series started on @channel4 last week and I was so excited about it. It’s actually turning out to be heavily orchestrated for controversy but that doesn’t dissuade me from the fact that this is a much needed mainstream discussion about gender identity. Question is, where are all your posts? Where’s all the ignorant twittering? Where is the fourth wave putting your ignorance right? I’ve made sure #Genderquake has started conversations in my personal life and have been pleasantly surprised that we’re all actually watching it but tell me what you’re thinking....? For those who don’t know, so far we’ve watched the above ‘housemates’ thrown together in a reality tv show (gay, queer, trans, straight and nb people) and had a further live debate with panelists discussion on how gender is changing. #gender #genderidentity #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #channel4 #nb #nonbinary #gay #queer #queercommunity #feminism #intersectionalfeminism #britishfeminism #ukfeminism #translivesmatter #munroebergdorf #caitlynjenner#britain#uk #britishpolitics #ukpolitics

How I’m spending my Sunday morning thanks to @glamrou let’s hope #nickycampbell doesn’t give bigotry too much speaking time it’s sure to raise my stress levels. Come shout at the tv with me. #bbctbq #bbcbq #thebigquestions #bbc #mras #feminism #britishfeminism #ukfeminism #intersectionalfeminism #sundaymorning #sundaymorningpolitics

I really debated posted this thread from @the.new.africann because my feelings about #menaretrash are complex and DAMNIT does it invite ignorants! Imma say it once here then refer anybody to this post. #menaretrash systemically. #menaretrash personally. #menaretrash beneficially, ignorantly, lazily, quietly, loudly, directly, indirectly and every other way-ly. I support anyone who wishes to use this phrase. Believe it or not. I choose not to (anymore). Is it divisive? I don’t care. Is it distracting? Yes. If you are a man acknowledging your privilege and working for marginalised voices you need not be offended by this. If you are offended by this and do fuck all to change the world for the benefit of women - get outta here. You’re not gonna like my voice. #feminism #intersectionalfeminism #britishfeminism #ukfeminism #mythandry #misandry #misogyny

30 yrs ago today Justin Fashanu took his own life because, as the only ‘out’ lgbt player in the history of English football, he believed he would be vilified for his sexuality. Sports culture here, and around the world, is homophobic, misogynistic and abusive at its core. The problems then are no different from now. #justinfashanu #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #football #britishfootball #norwich #norwichfootball #norwichcity #sports #sportsculture #feminism #intersectionalfeminism #britishfeminism #ukfeminism #uk #britain

Thank you @newjoywhodis very accurate 😂

The wage gap isn’t real. Women pick more menial jobs. This doesn’t take into account that women want part time, lower responsibility jobs. But maternity leave. Instagram needs a sarcasm font #WhichOnesTheTruth I wish this was about the UK but it was too good not to share! Ps. Comparatively the average wage for WSL English player (women’s premier league) is £20-35,000 where as men’s will be £2.6 MILLION #wagegap #patriarchy #smashthepatriarchy #feminism #equalrights #equalpay #intersectionalfeminism #britishfeminism #football #soccer #ukfeminism #ukpolitics #womensfootball #womenssoccer #britishpolitics #premierleague #wsl

I’ve been seeing this everywhere and tryna comment every time before it dawned on me I should just make my own damn post with my own thoughts. And I know y’all gonna hate it but I cannot impress upon you the importance that we RECOGNISE the ability tumblr post have to change our world. Language and dictionary definitions and thus cultural norms evolve and change because of public pressure. We literally define our language so when you come at me with ‘you can be racist against white people because the dictionary definition says so’ you’re wrong. Racism has become synonymous with institutional racism. As well it fkking should. White people will never suffer the same way and it doesn’t mean you’re ignoring their sufferings by distinguishing the difference. HOWEVER. I wanna get on to my main point. The term ‘sexism’ hasn’t evolved to that standard of definition yet. Tumblr activism is forcing it that way but I ain’t entirely happy with that. I AM sympathetic to the cause (lots of structural sexism exists) but we should not define it by the same standards of the definition of racism. We have the terms misogyny and misogynoir to define more systemic forms of oppression against women but yes, you can be sexist towards men. We see that in the ridicule of the male nurse, in the fear of the ‘effeminate’ man, the ostracism of the stay at home father and more... we need ‘lower accountability’ language like the word sexism - labelling everything ‘other’ as ‘prejudice’ is not helpful. We’re busy creating new terms for previously taboo or oppressive subjects so why is the one word ‘prejudice’ enough for such a multitude of injustices? #feminism #reveresesexism #intersectionalfeminism #tumblr #britishfeminism #systemicoppression #ukfeminism #misogyny

Nothing hurts me more than women who don’t get it. I understand feminism is a broooaaadddd af umbrella that means we’ll have differing views and personal approaches but I highlight that feminism is the MOVEMENT for women’s liberation - so we’re all facing and heading the same way. You don’t identify with the umbrella term? I struggle with understanding you. #feminism #intersectionalfeminism #britishfeminism #ukfeminism #womenslib #womensliberation #womanism #egalitarianism #equalism #ukpolitics #britishpolitics #uk #whitefeminism #pussyhats #pussyhatfeminism #radicalfeminism #britain

I have seen men sharing this post on social media and I’m grateful and pleased for their voices. TW for child rape mentions. I have my own triggers and have been unable to engage with the story of 8yo #Asifa who was kidnapped, sedated and repeatedly gang raped in #India recently. Seeing her image has been triggering so reading the account has been impossible for me but this post puts it perfectly - my guilt or compassion do nothing to help girls like her. I have often extolled the need and virtues of men raising their voices in the feminist movement, it’s men who will talk to men and bring about direct change. #justiceforasifa #Repost @raghavjuyal #feminism #intersectionalfeminism #indianfeminism #britishfeminism #ukfeminism #rape #sanjiram #deepakkhanjuna
