Trying to destigmatize feminism by rendering it entirely toothless and turning it into a soft option by throwing angry women, lesbians, protest activists under the bus is shitty and counter-productive
Stop trying to make feminism palatable to the masses by attempting to reassure people that feminists “are totes not angry hairy bitches who are soooo unreasonable and violent! Feminists love lipstick too! We just wanna get paid a little bit more pwetty please uwu” and won’t picket or scream or be loud and those who do are like, totally crazy and not ~real~ feminists. Yes, yes they are.
That kind of rhetoric isn’t gonna get us far. Sure, we need polished and digestible feminists who make lovely speeches at the UN and feminists who love baking and makeup and have pink blogs about how they’re shaving for women and that’s cool, it absolutely has its place, but so does protesting, angry feminists, women who hate men, women who are loud and angry and express those feelings, women who picket and fight and who aren’t going to say please anymore. Stop throwing those women under the bus in your rush to reassure the masses that feminists aren’t angry bra burners - some of us ARE. And there’s nothing wrong with that. I’ll remind y’all that nobody ever got their owed rights in this world by asking. Battles are won because they are fought.

I got my B.A. from a top 20 university in 2011, and I graduated at the top of my class with a master’s degree in April 2014. I am now pursuing a second master’s degree in English and Creative Writing so I can get my Ph.D. and start teaching. I am a member of Phi Kappa Phi, the oldest all-discipline honor society in the United States. I have tutored countless college and grad students, particularly in AP and APA styles.
I usually take payment over Paypal, but we can work something out if you’re opposed to that. If you’d like my references or writing samples, please send me a message. Let’s get you writing like a boss!

the harry potter fanfiction I have obsessively been consuming over the past week or so,
On the Way to Greatness, by mira mirth
The World I Leave Behind, by NES85
Then Comes a Mist and a Weeping Rain, by Faith Wood (I also read a lot of her other Harry/Draco stuff, but this is the best imo.)
I have wrist pain from scrolling down too much as I read Harry Potter fanfiction…
