Why we need feminism

Why we need feminism

trigger warnings, sexual assault talk, bullying talk and other things that may trigger a person. This is also the rumination of a mother who has personally faced most of the topics in this blog post.

I am the mother of an eleven year old daughter. I am also the mother of a seven year old son. I fear more for her starting a new school, than I do him. That is why we need feminism.

silversarcasm:

how can you not see ableism as a feminist issue

autistic girls, especially black autistic girls, are misdiagnosed and underdiagnosed because of the focus on white cis boys and how they present as autistic

disabled girls and women often have their consent violated, both in…

This…my daughter has autism. And the FIGHT I had to get her diagnosed was atrocious. Had to send her away to live with my inlaws for a year so she could be seen by a specialist, who specialized in autism in girls, at the tune of $3000 to get her diagnosed so she could get the supports she needed. Best. Money…ever…spent. She is now a thriving 11 year old girl, top marks in her class, going for the Lady Baden Powell award in Girl Guides.

"fourteen year old godspouse"

oh honey no

pleeeeeease tell me this is a hypothetical situation and that there is not actually a fourteen year old child out there who has entered…

I had that parent twitch as well. Another thing I would like to add onto lokisbruid's post is: Why the FUCK would someone go out of their way to dig up someone's tumblr profile and post gossipy shit about them, if it weren't an attempt to bully and or shame? Seriously. STOP. IT. ESPECIALLY one of a teenage person, who probably already is getting bullied at school in some form or another, and adding the tumblr UPG brigade on top of that shit cake? Yeah stop that shit. I have zero tolerance for this bullshittery. Bullies are who deliberately look for someone's profile to rip them to shreds. Bullies need to be put in their place regardless of faith structure. Leave the girl alone. Lokisbruid addressed the spirituality and decision making aspect, and backed it up with enough history, so I don't have to go there at least, but I will address the bullying aspect. I'm cranky…and in pain, but shit like this makes me break out my spork
