Anonymous asked: oh, so white parents cant adopt colored children? youd rather them be in foster care or poor orphanages in countries that cant afford them? we saved my baby sister from an orphanage in korea and we love her so much. youre a racist for thinking white people arent good parents

feministsupernatural:

  1. You used colored instead of children of color. Colored is offensive. 
  2. You used the term ‘saved’. Adopting children should never be about saving them. It should be about creating a family.
  3. I never said white people can’t be good parents to children of color. My foster parents were white and they were good parents to me. My mother who was white was not. It’s just if you’re going to raise a child of color in a racist society, you need to do research. Like, my foster parents, rather than acknowledge that I am non-white, they would say me being 3/4ths white and light skinned made me white.  My foster father didn’t get why the idea of an open casting for, say, Mulan wasn’t okay but an open casting for Seven Brides For Seven Brothers was. White parents need to learn, if they’re going to transracially adopt, how to care for the needs of a non-white child and how to allow them to interact with their culture and also to ID racism. The fact that Mitt Romney’s family named their child a name meaning ‘black one’ means they got off to a hella bad start for that. 
  4. If you’re trolling, good job, cuz you hella pissed me off.

no mercy for teenage boys
like I don’t fucking care if they’re 14, 15, 16 
teenage boys still follow me in groups shouting things at me, “joking” about raping me, intimidating me, etc
if they want to act like men I have no problem with them being treated like men
don’t fool yourself into pretending they’re innocent and don’t know what they’re doing
they fucking know, it’s intentional.
they know even as teenagers they have power over women and I’m fucking tired of pretending we owe them some kind of mercy just because “they’re young they don’t know better!!!” piss off
like I remember being 16 and a group of TWELVE YEAR OLDS tried to hold me down and RAPE ME
they hid and waited, they brought a crow bar. you think they didn’t know what they were doing?
I’m done holding back, these boys are fully aware of what they’re doing and they’re not going to fucking change out of the good of their hearts when they become men, they’re just going to learn they get no punishment for their actions
so yeah no mercy for teenage boys

Anonymous asked: This is an "easier said than done situation" but ill throw it out anyway. Can't radfem get a list serve of emails, like emails ppl make up specifically for a rad fem list serve with no identification attached and everyone that wants to gets on it and then there can be email blasts saying "meeting on the waterfront burnside bridge date/time"? Like would that even work?

You can form underground organization many ways, but if this was in response to radfems respond the purpose of this event is to be open to the public.

Can we talk about how tumblr likes to refer to 40 year old ex-military dudes-turned-transwomen as “trans girls” in order to denote some sort of girlish innocence onto them???

harassing 15-16 year old girls on the internet is radical feminism

You posted a death threat aimed at women

this is the person threatening to kill women with their shitty kitchen knife, who made several follow up posts “i am dangerous” “i am insane”

…… …….. and you’re the victim? what the actual fuck

We are saddened to report that the Multnomah Quaker Meeting House has caved to demands to renege on our contract to rent the space. 
We are especially saddened to have to report that their stated reasons for participating in the ongoing blacklisting of gender-critical women indicate that they have bought into the blatant lies and smears of a small minority of people who use bullying, deception, and intimidation to close down open dialogue.  
Their cancellation email cited “abusive language and behavior” on the part of scheduled speakers, but provided no attempt at proof that any of the organizers or women scheduled to speak (Kathleen Barry, Dawn Schiller, Lierre Keith, Heath Russell, Rachel Ivey, Samantha Berg) have ever committed abuse against anyone.  Not only is this assertion provably false, it is a stunning reversal of reality since most, if not all, of the women involved have been subject to intimidation, stalking, sexual harassment, online bullying, threats of rape and violence, and in some cases, actual physical violence, BECAUSE of their courage in speaking out against the gender caste system and systems of sexual exploitation.
To add insult to injury, a subsequent note from a contact at the Meeting House to one of our organizers dismissively referred to the ongoing conflicts around gender-criticism, free speech, and the blacklisting of feminists as “bickering.”  
The bottom line is that an open event centered on promoting dialogue has been blacklisted from this venue because a small minority want to suppress dissent.  Voices on all sides of the conversation around gender abolition have justly demanded open, constructive, respectful dialogue around this issue, and this kind of dialogue is the purpose of Radfems Respond.  Our event will be open to the public, and registrants have so far included radical feminists, trans-identified, and detransitioned individuals.  In fact, some of the most recent opinions in defense of Radfems Respond have been penned by trans-identified people, who have also asked that others stop trying to silence women in their name. 
We have asked the Multnomah Quakers for clarification on their reasons for cancellation. Based on their stated reasons so far, we can only conclude that they believe malicious falsehoods.  If you would like to inquire as well, or express your regret that they have chosen not to support this dialogue, you can email your thoughts tohearthkeeper@multnomahfriends.org.  They also have a facebook page (found here: https://www.facebook.com/MultnomahFriendsMeeting).  
Rest assured, however, that this event will go forward despite the failure of our original venue to keep their commitment.  Because of the history of threats, intimidation, and silencing against radical feminist voices, we do have a backup venue in downtown Portland, and we will be announcing those specifics very soon.  We hope that members of the Multnomah Quakers will join us at our new venue and participate in the respectful discussion that they were unable to support.  We look forward to seeing you there and continuing this much-needed conversation.
Please spread the word about this attempt at censorship on twitter by using the tag #radfemsrespond, and on facebook by liking our page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Radfems-Respond/715231761853325

have you ever been following someone for a while but they’ve changed their url, icon, and theme so many times that you literally have no idea who they are anymore but you’ve been in mutual follow with them so long that it’s unacceptable to ask
