saying feminism is unnecessary because you don’t feel oppressed is like saying fire extinguishers are unnecessary because your house isn’t on fire

Isn’t amazing how people don’t give a shit about misogyny until they can accuse muslims of it in order to justify their islamaphobia?

the only domestic instinct my parents have managed to pass on to me is the tendency to hoard multiple plastic bags in another plastic bags despite the fact that I will probably never need this many plastic bags in my adult life

white women: Men take up way too much room in feminist discourse, women must always be centered in the discussion.
*POC talking about race issues*

Your Mouth Is a Church, I Forgot How to Pray by Jeanann Verlee
 
 
It’s raining ice despite April’s promise and
            somewhere a bloodmoon hangs in the sky.

Now, morning. We made it, despite my cruel
            wishes. We were children once. Guiltless.

There is a war in each of us. Yours has a peculiar
            scent. Mine is dead wet, the color of sickness.

I am a mouth of mettle and iron. Godless.
            You are brawl and fang. Courage, code.

Though battle keeps us, we die a little
            each day. I’ve lost the word for prayer.

My love, take these walls, these wars.
            Dull my blades. I am tired of the hunt.

I’ve laid my only words at your feet. Open for me.
            l want to know, be known. Want and be wanted.
