She was aiming at me, Fif, but I still like your post.

I got my hair cut by a man for the first time yesterday. I'm not impressed. And he was kind of a DB.

ETA: He also had rhinestones on his jeans.

Do you like your haircut at all or were you just not impressed with him?

I mean, I don't actually care what people like him think, but what a weird thing to say.

But this whole concept of "respecting the choices women make for themselves" assumes that women can make, and are making, free choices on the major issues that affect them.

true liberal feminism is about working to ensure that all women have the ability to make choices.

including choices we don't agree with.

And even white middle class women are subject to domestic and sexual violence that they don't choose...
really???? gee, i had no idea....

25 years ago, i WAS one of those women subjected to domestic violence.

which disproportionately affects disenfranchised communities of women.
no kidding?

i wouldn't have figured that out by being the only white woman in the support group that VVPD (or whatever they were called back then) offered? (Victims & Vulnerable Persons Dept. for the uninitiated.)

Liberal feminism is like "post-racial thinking" or "colour blindness" - you can only get there if you ignore a lot of peoples' realities and focus only on the privileged few.
i wasn't aware that working for equality of opportunity and equality before and under the law was linked to the colour of one's skin.

silly me...

Absolutely, skin colour is a big sticking-point in the feminist movement, and yes, womens' equality is completely linked to class and race. That's not to take away from your own personal experiences - it's a larger point. I don't think Saria meant anything personal by her comments, and I know I don't.

What a childish opinion to have when you actually feel the need to define 'my struggle is worse than yours'

That's what happens when you try a case in public. It's not the same as attacking someone personally. Surely you see the difference in "OJ had to know what he was doing" and "You must really hate yourself, random poster." Judges and lawyers try to get in the mind of the accused all the time - it goes with the territory, and media and the general public get caught up too.

Also, it would have made more sense to post your belief ON THAT THREAD instead of trying to use it to defend someone else's bad behaviour, as I'm not sure what that has to do with anything in this context.

This is so heartwarming and elicited so many emotions inside me, I just had to share it with all of you because I know it will be appreciated by many here



















These are the emotions in no particular order:

Wrong on so many levels...where do I begin?

Sadly, a member of my family shared this on her timeline because she found it to be profoundly moving. STOP THAT!!!!
