Why Radical Feminism by @terristrange

(Cross-posted with permission from The Arctic Feminist)

Because men’s orgasms are not more important than:

infants.
animals.
women.
sanity.
human rights.
inanimate objects which men fetishize.

Because women are not:

broodmares.
domestic servants.
blow-up dolls.
happy hookers.
objects.
sluts*.
dirty.
the root of all evil.
punching bags.
perfect murder victims.
saints.
whores.

Because prostitution is not:

empowering.
a choice.
a quick and easy way to make money.
an easy way out.
non-traumatizing.
an issue of consent.
a job just like any other.
okay for some women.
work.

Because being female is not reducible to:

What we wear.
our hairstyles.
what we consume.
our body size.
how strong we are.
a performance.
an idea in a man’s head.
what kind of vehicle we drive.
whether we paint our toenails or not.
whether we love women or men or both or neither.
stereotypes.

Because children are not:

child sex-workers.

Because sex trafficking victims are not:

migrant sex workers.

* no woman is a slut, not even YOU slutwalkers.
