24. social work major. 1/2 of the best/cutest lesbian couple ever. another queer liberationist & intersectional feminist with way too many feels for fictional characters.
MY EMOTIONS: doggies, superheroes, art, nature, sci-fi, social politics, comics, lingerie, movies, body modification, harry potter, a:tla, legend of korra, wolves, art, fashion, history, awesome ladies ruling everything, and whatever else tickles my fancy.
"I am a big girl. A voluptuous, curvy, dress-wearing lesbian. I love my body; it’s the only one I’ll ever have. I eat a lot of greens and work out and drink gin martinis and put M&Ms in my froyo and sometimes I don’t do anything but watch Project Runway. I am allowed to look sexy, feel sexy, and be in love. I am worthy of all of those things, and so are you. Own your good and bad, and all the scary parts that you’ve been covering up because it is yours and no amount of judgement can tell you how to love your body. In the words of Sonya Renee, the body is not an apology. You are magic. “
Feminism INCLUDES intersectionality. If you purposefully exclude colored women, disabled women, trans women, muslim women, poor women, and queer women, you are NOT a feminist. If you choose to ignore the intersectionalities that shape a womans life such as her race, gender identity, sexuality, and class, you are NOT a feminist. If your feminist agenda ONLY touches upon western rape culture and sex positivity, you are NOT a feminist.
HAPPENING NOW (9.26.14): And in an instance, mayhem. The police attacked protesters without warning or clear provocation, mind you, WHILE the police chief was out chatting/marching with them. More to come tonight. Stay woke. #farfromover (PT I)
