Of course, that same level of vitriol isn’t leveled at single women who decide to remain child-free, or poor women, or women of color. Those women aren’t selfish; they’re rational, even commendable. Single women who have kids, and women who are poor or of color see their choice to have children criticized as irresponsible or indulgent.
Yet, a married white woman saying “no thanks” to mommy-hood? She’s a selfish narcissist, putting her life of fancy vacations and spotless white carpets ahead of her social and biological duty to reproduce
I hope everyone remembers Hillary Clinton’s passionate defense of Israel’s war crimes and total silence on Ferguson when she’s running for president in two years.
U KNOW U WANT IT
I completely do. Love the gay summer vibe, too.
If a lesbian has a female friend that she is NOT involved with romantically or sexually and has no plan or desire for it to be that, guess what? It’s a PLATONIC RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TWO WOMEN.
Guess what else? Me talking about platonic relationships between women being important INCLUDES LESBIANS. Guess why? Those icky stereotypes about lesbians thanks to what? PORN AND HOMOPHOBIA. What do porn and homophobia influence? SOCIETY. What happens when a woman who is known to be a lesbian has female friends or is trying to make female friends? She’s either assumed to be having sex with all her friends or will soon, or because of homophobia will have a harder time making friends with women who don’t want to be associated with lesbians.
Which goes right back to my point that society will not allow women to be just friends. Women, which includes lesbians.
OOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH imagine that.
* Yes, I DID say that earlier, and those posts were misread, and here we are now. Having said all that, I’m done with the matter. Any other messages about this crap will be deleted because I’m tired of going in circles saying the same shit repeatedly in different ways.
Including a possible rape metaphor in a Disney movie is one thing. People could have interpreted the scene that way. But having Angelina Jolie come out and admit on the record that it was the intent of the film changes the game.
