A racist woman is not a feminist; she doesn’t care about helping women, just the women who look like her and can buy the same things she can.

A transphobic woman is not a feminist; she is overly concerned with policing the bodies and expressions of others.

A woman against reproductive rights — to use bell hook’s own example, and an issue close to your heart — is not a feminist; she prioritizes her dogma or her disgust over the bodies of others.

An ableist woman is not a feminist; she holds some Platonic ideal of what a physically or mentally “whole” person should be and tries to force the world to fit inside it.

Day 18: #admire

Janet Mock came to our school a few months ago for a reading of her book and a Q&A session . Such an honor! She has done a lot for the trans community and even said that while she (and Laverne Cox) are currently at the forefront, that there is still a lot of work to be done because there still isn’t enough (accurate) representation of trans people in the media. The excerpt she read was from when she was a child in grade school and it broke my heart to hear what she had to go through. But still, I’m so glad for the opportunity to hear her words and to be able to see her in person! I could tell everyone in the audience admired her.

Why Guys Like Asian Girls - Anna Akana

Everyone needs to watch this video. Now.

100% on point especially about men thinking that having “yellow fever” is a compliment and we’re supposed to be flattered by it. It’s the #1 way to parade around your blatant racism.
