I post a lot of social justice, space, cyberpunk, and glitch stuff.
An activist from the International Solidarity Movement blocks IDF soldiers from shooting at protesting Palestinians in Gaza, saying “You’re shooting at kids, don’t you understand that? Just pull back!“
Guys. This is a woman grappling with an armed soldier wearing nothing but a jacket.
I think we need to know her name.
She is amazing. This encourages me. It shows me that we have power. We can do this.

Anonymous said: Whats your opinion on censorship? To be more specific, would you rather have a silenced biased/racist/misogynist majority of people or a very vocal biased/racist/misogynist minority of people?
The framework of your question is a fundamentally flawed view of relationship between oppressed and oppressor.
It is not simply about preventing people with harmful views from ~expressing them~ through censorship. These views expressed or kept hidden actively harm us because the people who hold them wield structural power. Preventing them from being vocalized will not stop that.
No one is advocating we censor bigotry. We are advocating for it’s destruction. The systems that cause these ‘opinions’, the people who hold them and the way they are used against marginalized people.

A 14 year-old boy was recently raped at knife-point by a 20 year-old woman. When the story broke, it was primarily men who claimed he should have enjoyed it. It was feminists who validated his pain and spoke in support of him.
This is why we need feminism.
I’m not a misandrist, but a few quick questions:
If men can’t even make their own sandwiches, why are they allowed to make bills in congress?
If men can’t control their own sexual urges, why are they allowed to control nations?
If a woman’s legs/shoulders are enough to distract a man, how can we trust them to stay focused on things like open heart surgery or judging a murder trial?
Again not a misandrist, some of my best friends are guys and i’m even dating one.
