“Because this is a feminist blog, there are some things you are not allowed to disagree about, even respectfully. In this space, nobody is responsible for their own rapes, not even in the tiniest way. In this space, every woman has the right to access reproductive care (you can be personally pro-life here, but you cannot be politically pro-life). In this space, racism is acknowledged as alive and well and permeating almost every aspect of everybody’s lives. In this space (though I fuck this up sometimes), trans people deserve as much respect and consideration as cis people (please let me know if I’m fucking this up, I know I have a history of it). In this space, nobody is responsible for their own abuse, not even in the tiniest way. In this space, it is acknowledged that sexism is alive and well and permeating almost every aspect of everybody’s lives. In this space, women’s experiences are acknowledged as real and legitimate (men’s, too, but we talk about women a lot more). In this space, biological or evolutionary explanations for behavior are considered to be socially motivated.”—
