Sweet.

You know what the Midwest is? Young and restless.
The buzz word in popular feminism today is empowerment. When I became a feminist many years ago, the word we used was liberation. Unlike empowerment, liberation is a collective concept which means that even if my life is all rosy and “empowered,” it doesn’t mean shit for those women who are doing low paid jobs while trying to raise families. In fact, there is a very good chance that elite women’s empowerment is built on the backs of other women whose exploited labor provides the goods and services that enable a good career and a comfortable lifestyle. The low pay of nannies, cooks, cleaners, sweat shop workers, and day care providers means that wealthier women are freed up to make a salary that no doubt does feel empowering.

Gail Dines

Goddamn so many shots fired. Truth of truths.

(via bad-dominicana)

ya’ll seriously.

do you know who the fuck Gail Dines is?

There may be truth in here but please look at the person saying it. She is a very fucked up body-shaming sex-negative “feminist” who thinks that the solution to all problems is to ban pornography.

DOES ANYONE CHECK QUOTE SOURCES ANYMORE

(She is not wrong in this statement itself, I’m just asking you to look at people who may be more inclusive feminists that say the same type of things about class)

^Truth.
