the more sexual and inappropriate you are with me the better we’ll get along
So your experience is illustrative of the whole situation? And your generalization totally is accurate, for sure.
Here’s the thing: you’re historically illiterate.
You owe your ability to be openly out to a butch named Storme DeLarverie.

Without here, there’d be no Stonewall, so right away, you owe her plenty.
Then there’s other historical butches, like Anne Lister, who described the lesbian community of the 1800s through her diaries and gives us the first known look into the earliest years of what would later become the lesbian community.
Without her, there’d be no femmes for the morally bankrupt little shitberry you’re trying to defend to sell shit to.
Radclyffe Hall pioneered lesbian literature with The Well of Loneliness, so if you ever read a book where the lesbian doesn’t die, thank her.
And then there’s the fact that butches have always held the gates. In the 1950s, when lesbian culture/community was first becoming truly solidified, butches would be the ones who protected the rest from homophobic attacks, and who would serve as the first community activists.
So don’t come onto my blog and waggle your ignorance in my face, because I will fucking well bite it off.
here’s a tip: unless your LGBTQIA+ friend specifically tells you you can tell other people about them being LGBTQIA+ keep your fucking mouth shut
Okay but you cannot identify as a feminist if you are anti-choice when it comes to abortion. You cannot claim to view women as people yet believe that they do not deserve reproductive healthcare. That’s not how it works. Read a goddamn book.
Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family.
repeat after me:
- virginity is a social construct
- you don’t lose your virginity
- there’s nothing valuable or precious about virginity, it’s an imaginary concept
- virginity is inherently heterocentric
- your worth is not defined by whether or not you’ve had a dick inside you
- what you define as sex is up to you, you get to decide how many people you’ve had sex with
- the end

Not all feminists are hairy man-hating lesbians. But I certainly am.
