17 year old Viet radfem that's pretty angry about everything

My favorite thing is that prolife assholes think their tax money has anything to do with abortions? And like, most conservatives don't even pay much in taxes (the wealthy ones)

lolatprolife:

I don’t fucking understand americans and their utter disgust for paying for your citizens’ health care.

Like “oh no my tax money is going into taking care of the people” yes HELLO THAT IS WHAT TAXES ARE SUPPOSED TO DO, WANKSHAFT. - Leigh

How the U.S.’s ZERO weeks of paid family leave compares to the rest of the world.

I keep hearing more and more beautiful things about Singapore. :x

The thing about having radical politics is accepting that your beliefs are not going to be palatable to a lot of people and that you will very likely lose friends.

that’s why they are radical.

most people don’t want to completely overturn the system, either because they don’t…

Let me talk to you about books.
Specifically, one book. This book.
This book should be a best seller. This book should be required reading for graduating from high school. Before you get that diploma, you read this book.
This book deals with debunking “Neurosexism,” which is a very fancy term for all of that evolutionary psychology bullshit that people spill about those “brain differences” between boys and girls.
This book debunks such myths as:
Boys are better at math than girls
Women make crappy lawyers/business CEOs/etc, as their brains are not cut out for aggression.
Men make crappy counselors/primary school teachers/primary parents/etc, as their brains are not cut out for empathy.
MEN ARE BUILT FOR GOING OUT AND HUNTING WHILE WOMEN ARE BUILT FOR STAYING HOME AND BABYMAKING IT’S NOT SEXISM IT’S JUST BIOLOGY
And many other such myths.
Furthermore, this book covers topics such as: 
Neurosexism and gender perceptions in multiple races (as this is not a singularly white experience, just as the western world isn’t a singularly white experience)
Sex discrimination in the workplace, and how women are (or, more often, are not) allowed to behave
How science is used (badly) to support many of these claims
Experiences of trans people, both through interviews and empirical studies.
AND FINALLY - It is all brilliantly researched, cited, compiled - and it’s easy to read! Cordelia Fine actually manages to be funny while writing this, which I think is important, because it makes all of this information infinitely accessible.
Delusions of Gender has reinforced what Oberlin taught me: The gender binary is stupid and arbitrary, and dangerous. And it is a self-perpetuating bias that needs to be addressed to be overcome.

So adding this to my to-read list.

And it’s currently available on Kindle for $3.34.

THIS BOOK IS EVERYTHING
Cordelia Fine is a damn good psychologist and this book is approachable and fun to a lay reader, but also PACKED with important research results, clearly conveyed. Strongly recommend this puppy to anyone who is interested in neuropsychology, evolutionary psychology (which is a crock of shit, by the way), developmental psychology, gender, or childrearing. Every new parent should read it. Every misguided gender essentialist should read it. Everybody. It’s so good. 

Wait let’s do a book club about this too.

When they say Africa is poor…

Africa’s wealth is getting stolen by the West.

These so called first world nations are developed because they steal billions of dollars worth of African resources annually and then have the nerve to look down on us for having nothing.

The world is letting Israel continue its genocide of Palestinians so they’re not even hiding it any more.

Here’s a pdf version of the article which has since been taken down.

I don’t get the Tumblr trend of pretending that all of women’s choices are equally stigmatized. “Don’t shame me for wearing heels and make up.” “Don’t shame me for wanting to cook and clean and stay at home.” “Don’t shame me for being male-centric.”

Infinity notes.

Meanwhile where are these actual people who are enforcing discrimination against women for following the status quo?? I don’t ever see them.
