Even though my fatass has been HOWLING wildly about this for several years now, the UTTER FRUSTRATION of getting it JUST RIGHT and accommodating EVERYFUCKINGBODY’S SPECIFIC FEMINIST AGENDA in EVERY single legitimate and powerful statement in support of Feminism has at last hit the mainstream cultural zeitgeist.
Perhaps now, some motherfuckers will finally get that by ruthlessly accusing, parsing, cornering, attacking, shaming, and “calling out” even those who are genuinely trying to ally with us in our fight — no matter how well-intentioned we may be — we are, in fact, WORKING AGAINST OURSELVES.
And, even more inexplicable and self-sabotaging, if something is not expressed JUST RIGHT…WE ARE EVEN ATTACKING EACH OTHER. I have seen it time and time again. What the fuck is up with THAT? And worse, how UNFEMINIST is THAT?
People just need to calm the fuck down and accept ALL offers of alliance…even if those attempting to express their support don’t speak the tiresome, exclusionary, lofty, academic language of “patriarchal problematic privilege triggering reductive non-intersectional micro-aggressions”.
And, let me get this straight. People are eagerly marching right up and knocking on our Clubhouse door — a Club which we have been fighting to get them to join SINCE THE BEGINNING OF GOTTDAMNED TIME — and we are turning them away BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT PASSWORD?
That is some SERIOUS BULLSHIT.
For Maude’s sake, people are TRYING, people — but they are being scared away from the cause by constant, aggressive, swarming, rabid language police. If someone is legitimately trying and they stand with us in their hearts…even if they don’t yet “talk the talk” — they are trying their very best to “walk the walk” in the linguistic minefield that is modern Feminism.
So, quit tripping them up in their tentative, admirable baby steps, just accept the love that is being offered, and LET IT RIDE, Bitches.
We can do better.
We are on our way.
We’ll get there.
We’ll KILL IT.
That is all.
