Angry feminist.

Orlando, who was dining with Leonardo DiCaprio at the Cipriani restaurant on Wednesday night, was very, very angry, when Justin, who didn’t have a reservation at the eatery, approached their table to try to talk to the actors.

DiCaprio had proceeded to shoo away the pop singer with his hand, leading Bieber to provoke a fight which saw Bloom jump over a sofa to get at the 20-year-old Baby singer at the restaurant.

(x) this just keeps getting better

Women who claim they haven’t benefited from feminism are like evangelical creationists who claim they haven’t benefited from science.

atlantisrises asked: Your entire blog is starting to confuse me. You do realize that systems of oppression are intersectional, that a person can gave privilege in some areas and be disadvantage in others, yes? The idea is that bi people face anxieties and erasure that homosexual people dont. Meanwhile, homosexual people face some problems that a lot of bi people dont. Issues of race, class and gender ID all compound and complicate those issues. You ARE bi. I'd like to ask if it never bothered you that (tbc)

gaypocalypse:

that people who shareyour sexual ID barely exist &are constantly discredited in fiction. Have you never felt the anxiety of wondering if your whole identity is a sham/phase/delusion? Have you never felt uncomfortable and “not gay enough” in gay groups & “not straight enough” in straight ones? Have you never been asked “are you sure” or “how many women vs men have you been with” when coming out? If you havnt, lucky you. if you have you understand how IN SOME WAYS bi identity is uniquely erased

of course i understand that systems of oppression are intersectional. but here’s the thing: not everything that’s shitty in this world is its own special system of oppression. you say yourself that bi people face some problems gay people (please don’t say homosexual; many gay people feel it has strong negative connotations) don’t and gay people face some problems bi people don’t. this is very true! but these can’t both be privilege/oppression dynamics because that would mean bi women and lesbians oppress each other, at the same time, on the same axis. mutual oppression isn’t a thing. oppression involves a fundamental power imbalance. the only clear power imbalance her is between straight people and lgb+ people. the different and special shitty experiences of bi people and gay people are the result of that oppression dynamic—homophobia—operating on them in different ways (as well as interacting with misogyny and other oppressions to affect them differently). when lesbians and bi women treat each other badly, they are drawing from internalized homophobia and misogyny to hurt each other horizontally, and it’s awful for all of us, but neither of these groups has the institutional power to oppress the other on that basis.

i hope you can understand why holding this belief doesnot imply that i have not experienced, don’t understand, or don’t care about biphobia. it’s just that i believe that biphobia is an effect of larger systems of oppression and not a system of oppression in its own right.

Dear future child
If it’s 3am and you find yourself in a world of complete despair
Please do not turn to strangers on the internet for solace as I did
Please climb onto my bed
And I will hold you until the demons sleep
If it is Thursday morning and you are too sad to move
I won’t force you
I will buy ice cream and we will watch your favourite tv show and I will remind you of your importance
If you feel as if you have no purpose
I will remind you that you were created entirely with love and every pain you feel, I feel too
When you’re sure you can’t go on anymore
I will tell you that when I was 21 I searched for peace at the bottom of a vodka bottle chased by a bottle of pain killers
But that five years later
When you were placed in my arms in the delivery room
I realised that you were why I had been holding on
Without realising it, you saved me, do you know how amazing that is?
So if you ever feel like grabbing that vodka bottle, put it down, we will get in the car and I will drive until the sky turns magenta
I will show you how the sun rises every morning to encourage you to rise too
Sweetheart I refuse to be unaware of your sufferings
As my mother was to mine.
