Ok, imma explain this one time for all the TRAs in the back:
Comparing black women to males is racist even in the name of “progressivism”, stop using us as props in your braindead arguments already.
Black women have been likened and compared to males for CENTURIES as a way to dehumanize us, to portray us as hyper masculine and unfeeling beasts of burden. This lil “simile” comes all the way from the plantation.
Womanhood, especially BLACK womanhood, is not an identity or feeling. It is a biological reality that was the basis on which my foremothers were raped and forced to bear children like factory farm cattle.
Genderist ideology is doubly dangerous to black women in this way. When you reduce womanhood to feelings, or an identity to opt in and out of, you are saying that the victims of that J Marion Sims bastard must’ve “identified” into the sadism he subjected them to.
Those women did NOT. That man didn’t cut open “feelings” or “identities”; he butchered the female organs belonging to black females selected for gynecological experiments because of their black FEMALE bodies.
When you reduce womanhood to a feeling, you are insinuating that I am “identifying” with the sky-high maternal mortality rate attached to African American women.
Genderist ideology is doubly dangerous to black women because it erases our doubly dangerous reality: we are female human beings of African heritage, subjected to such mistreatment because of both our race and our sex.
In addition to this, to add insult to injury, the modern trans movement has co-opted and appropriated the theory of #intersectionality from #blackfeminism, a term which was coined by scholar @sandylocks to describe how sex-based oppression is compounded thru our race.
When you reduce womanhood to an identity, you’re saying that all the women and girls back in my country, Dominica 🇩🇲, where abortion is still fully criminalized, are “identifying” into being stripped of their bodily autonomy.
When you say that we can’t “center reproductive systems” at WOMEN’S events, you are silencing us AA women from speaking about our high-ass abortion and maternal mortality rates. All to stoke your fragile ass ego. That’s how much black TIMs care about their “cis-ters” 🙃.
The only way we black women can make sense of our oppression by is understanding the roots of BOTH: females are a sex class subjugated globally by males to be exploited for our sexual and reproductive labor. Black ppl are a racial class subjugated by white ppl to get free labor.
It honestly breaks my heart how many other self-proclaimed black “feminists” are buying into this fuckshit. I suppose it’s because as black women, we are expected to mammy the entire damn world. 🙄
Notice how @serenawilliams and @Venuseswilliams are mocked as “the Williams brothers” for being strong black women. Muscular white women are also subjected to the same ridicule, but it takes on a racialized slant when this rhetoric is directed at a black female.

LMAO @ libfems and “progressives” praising Iceland for its gender equality while steadfastly defending the sex trade...

Could it be a coincidence that countries with the highest rates of gender equality see prostitution as a tool of patriarchy & violence against women? 🤔
🤷🏾‍♀️🤗 Iceland, you’re doing great sweetie.
Hmm, not one mention of abolitionism in this article. They probably didn’t want to set off the pro prostitution lobbyists 🤷🏾‍♀️

Ok, here’s a test for all the purported “#sexpositive” “feminists”. Y’all despise “moralistic” views of sexuality, huh? You think sex should be commodified and prostitution should be a job like therapy or tutoring?
Why are we clutching our pearls over “#SexualHarassment”? Why even have this #MeToo shit? What makes sexual harassment any different or worse than all other forms of harassment? What makes grabbing pussies any worse than grabbing someone’s arm? And at that...
What’s wrong with some dude asking his intern to blow him? There’s nothing wrong with asking to make coffee or deliver papers. Isn’t it “just work”? #BlowJobsAreRealJobs, eh? And at that, if prostitution is fully decriminalized, some creep going around asking women to suck his

It’s so funny and ironic how #liberals call #RadicalFeminism#WhiteFeminism”, yet, I’ve come across so much actual #racism directed at me and other #GenderCritical black women from self-righteous #trans activists/allies and libfems. 🙄
I’ve gotten more racism from that crowd in the past two weeks than I’ve gotten from any #RadicalFeminists in two months. Or any amount of time. Liberals routinely erase the radical #WomenOfColor from history who either called themselves #radfems or influenced radical feminism so
that they can call radical feminism “white”, misappropriate #Intersectionality from #BlackFeminism to try and justify including males in #feminism, argue that “transwomen are women the same way Black women are women”, (racist and dehumanizing comparison of black women to males),

Dedicated to @Terfy_Memes
Plus, a thread on how transwomen retain (at least some) male privilege 👇🏾
What is #maleprivilege? It is freedom, resources, rights, and respect granted instantly to any male person upon (or even before) birth, simply for being male. Having an advantage over another group of humans doesn’t just stop at laws.
When men don’t feel constantly threatened with violence and harassment for just existing. When medical conditions affecting males are given more funding and are more rigorously researched. When men get more pay and are promoted faster due to being seen as more competent in jobs.

How gender identity politics is endangering #WomensRights masquerading under the guise of “progressivism”- or in other words, as I said to this @notokyriarchy fatherfucker, an #MRA’s dream come true
- (thread)
I shouldn’t have to explain the realities of sex-based oppression in 2018! #Female is a biological sex. #Gender is the roles and norms that are imposed on those with female bodies to subjugate them to males for free sexual, domestic, and reproductive labor.
No matter how many genders a given culture had or recognized, somehow, the half of the group with a cock and balls (males) knew which other half of the group to forcibly impregnate (“#NonMen”, according to some). 🤔🤔🤔
