I didn’t see blogs doing Paddy’s Day specials, St. George’s Day specials, 17th May Specials.

I don’t give a flying fuck about America or its national day.

THIS.

Oh jeez, I didn’t even realise the date. guess I’ll be taking a small Tumblr hiatus tomorrow.

I’ve got my tinfoil hat and flame-proof coat on already. Pointing out racism and idiocy is my business… And business is booming.

The Hypocrisy of Pro-Choice and Gay Activists (by ChristopherEnoch)

“You support giving a woman a choice to open their legs”

Don’t watch this unless you enjoy studying hatemongers. I am not gonna lie. This makes me really uncomfortable.

“You support a system giving women lots of choices!”

Yes I do! Because we all should have a right to make decisions about our own bodies. We all should have that right.

“There are scientists that say serial killers were born that way!” Just like gay people say they were born that way.

He is comparing gay people to murderers! 

Why is this guy so angry? I mean really?

Scares the crap out me…

"You say you’re against war, yet you are silent regarding the greatest, the biggest, most brutal war that this world has ever seen"

Except, y’know, the fetus isn’t up there with a kalashnikov, and the doctor isn’t arranging guerilla raids. Except it’s not a war at all, except for one between those who believe that a woman’s right to her body is greater than a zygote’s potential right to life.

And trying to claim that Abortion is somehow against the spirit of equal rights? Don’t make me laugh, because I might choke.

"Black and Third World people are expected to educate white people as to our humanity. Women are expected to educate men. Lesbians and gay men are expected to educate the heterosexual world. The oppressors maintain their position and evade their responsibility for their own actions. There is a constant drain of energy which might be better used in redefining ourselves and devising realistic scenarios for altering the present and constructing the future."

Shotgun Seamstress #1 - A zine by and for black punks!

I’ve shared this link with a few of you and it’s been circulating on riot grrrl blogs, too, but I think it’s important to reiterate: Shotgun Seamstress is a great zine. The coordinator, Osa Atoe, started the zine in the Pacific NW. She’s now in New Orleans and also writes Shotgun Seamstress-related blog columns celebrating “the brown underground.”

On violence at punk shows, Atoe writes:

I grew up going to shows in a town where if certain people in the audience were making it impossible for the rest of the audience to enjoy the show by being violent or otherwise intolerable, certain bands would stop playing and wait for the idiocy to die down before they started playing again. That is punk to me: Creating the kind of atmosphere you want to have around you.

YES. Creating the kind of atmosphere you want to have around you: that is a big part of what being radical is to me.

Issue 1 of the Shotgun Seamstress zine highlights The Gories from Detroit (excellent garage rock blues-y track up top) and recent blog posts linked me over to Baton Rouge’s all-grrrl Kicktease. Oof, grrrls can WAIL. Also pretty into Trash Kit from the UK.

[TW for rape] Oh, one more thing

stfuhypocrisy:

I knew I’d forget something.

Sure, A Woman Shouldn’t Be Raped For Wearing a Short Skirt, But If I Leave My Door Unlocked, It’s Only Reasonable To Expect I Will Be Robbed

I hate hate hate really bad and smug analogies when it comes to rape. This kind of shit is the equivalent of, “I’m not a racist, but…” It’s “Women shouldn’t be raped, but…” You wouldn’t have to preface your shit with a disclaimer if what you were about to say didn’t indicate that you do, in fact, believe these very things. I was ranting about this to the bear the other night, and he said, “I’m not a racist, but I really like Coke.” Exactly, EXACTLY. You would never use the “I’m not an X, but…” format of speaking if you weren’t about to actually endorse X. “I don’t think women shouldn’t get raped for wearing short skirts, but goddamn did you see that SpongeBob movie? My kids loved it.” That entire disclaimer exists to absolve you of any responsibility for actually in fact believing this thing. “I’m not the kind of person that believes X, but I really think that X is true.” THAT IS WHAT YOU ARE SAYING GODDAMMIT

Okay, but it’s the analogy that bothers me the most.

Women shouldn’t be raped because they A) drink B) go out in public C) walk down dark alleys D) have sex E) wear clothing F) are pretty G) whatever, but if they do these things, they shouldn’t be surprised if they get raped.

The comparison for this isn’t, “I shouldn’t be surprised if I get robbed if I leave my door unlocked.”

The comparison is, “I shouldn’t be surprised if I get robbed if I carry a purse or a wallet, or spend money in public, or leave the house wearing anything but a burlap sack (thus indicating I have money to purchase clothing), or have a job, or talk about my job, or reveal my salary to friends, or have a bank account and go to the bank in public. I mean, let’s be reasonable, anybody could see me doing any of those things and intuit that I have money, and so naturally they’re going to try and take my money.”

That wouldn’t be unreasonable, would it? I mean, that’s what a robber would look for in a target. But we don’t consider people who leave the house with their purses and purchase goods in public stores to be really reckless and stupid and deserving of their eventual robbery, because jesus christ, that’s just normal stuff that every person in the world does.

But we do think it’s unreasonable for women to leave the house looking like women, and acting like women in public, and they are really reckless and stupid and deserving of their eventual rape, because jesus christ, they made the choice to do these obviously dangerous things.

It’s not unreasonable to believe that criminals with criminal goals will target individuals as victims that will yield them the highest rate of success and the lowest possibility of punishment. And criminals with criminal goals will make those determinations of success based on cultural indicators within the victim’s appearance and physical location.

But here’s the crucial difference.

A robber can look at a person who is leaving their job, driving a car, going to the bank, wearing a purse or carrying a wallet, and going to businesses and purchasing goods and reasonably assume that they have money, and if attacked in a successful way, the criminal can acquire that money.

A rapist who is looking to rape a woman can acquire what he wants from any woman. They all have what he needs to complete his crime. Having a short skirt or slutty personality doesn’t make her vagina any more or less existent on the physical plane. This is not at all comparable to somebody who may be robbed, whose appearance and behavior actually have something to do with the crime. Somebody driving a flashy car with expensive clothes and a wad of cash is more likely to be a worthwhile target for a robber than somebody bringing their groceries home on the bus. A criminal has more to gain by targeting somebody who exhibits more of the quality the criminal wants. People with money can make their possession of money more apparent. But outside of attempting to look like men, women cannot be more or less female in public.

All a rapist is looking for is a woman. Any woman can fit this bill. Maybe they have a particular type of woman they’d like to rape; this narrows the field to all women who match the type. But there is no corollary to the robber and his victim; all women have what a rapist wants. No woman has more or less vagina for a rapist to violate.

What some women do have is cultural approval to be raped.

A criminal wants to A) commit a crime and B) get away with it. When we’re talking about rape, any woman fits the bill for A. But only women that bystanders believe deserve to be raped fit the bill for B.

When somebody says, “I don’t think women should be raped for wearing short skirts, but what do they expect when they do go out like that?” what you are actually saying is that if a woman in a short skirt is raped, you will be less likely to hold her rapist culpable. Which makes a woman in a short skirt really appealing to a rapist. That’s something that you did. That’s not something the woman in the short skirt did, or something the rapist did. You made that woman a more comfortable target by making it clear that if she got raped, you would be less upset about it, less willing to see the rapist go to jail, less willing to support the woman. A woman is not increasing her risk of being raped by wearing a short skirt. You are increasing her risk of being raped by saying that women who get raped in short skirts should have expected that. Rapists hear you say that. By only raping the women that bystanders agree should be raped, a rapist reduces his chance of being caught and, if caught, punished. And that is why he will pick those women, over and over again, not because there is something more appealingly rapeable about them — they have what any woman has, as far as rape goes — but because he will be less likely to be held culpable for his actions.

“Women shouldn’t be raped for doing X, but really what do they expect if they do X,” really says, “Rape a woman for doing X and I am not going to be the one who calls the police.” And then a woman who does X gets raped and suddenly it’s, “She was raped for doing X!” instead of “She was raped because I made it clear I would not punish a rapist who only raped women who did X!”

Cause and effect people. Women don’t get raped because of things they do or do not do. They get raped because a rapist wanted to rape a woman, and made a very rational decision to rape a woman you don’t give a shit about so he wouldn’t go to jail. Women get raped because rapists decide to rape them, but rapistschoose which women to rape because there are some women you believe deserve to get raped, and a rapist was listening carefully when you said that.

Feministe: There Are No Perfect Accusers.

I’m going to add a word to that title.  

Anymore. 

There are no perfect accusers anymore

Jill’s analysis here is good; but it is also incomplete.  In the history of American rape trials and vigilante justice, there was a perfect accuser even if it only existed as a racist, classist construct.  

She was cisgendered, heterosexual, and white.  One word from her about her chastity (whether real or imagined), and whole towns could be burned down.  Men would be lynched.  Families would be destroyed.  

There were also perfect victims: women of color, queer women, immigrant women, trans women, poor women.  No amount of class mobility could protect them from rape, and no amount of purity could eradicate the marginalization inherent in their being.  

Since the feminist movement, in which well-to-do white women have tried to move out of the locus of protection and into the locus of power, they only have recently began fully experiencing the breadth of what white men would do to protect themselves and their power.  What slut walk would have protected Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s victim?  Would enthusiastic consent have helped her here?  

Highly fucking doubtful.  And yet, a LOT of our rape conversations don’t get beyond a simple credibility and sexual promiscuity analysis.  

You have to look at the HISTORY of rape accusations.  A white woman who is a citizen cannot be raped under the threat of deportation.  A heterosexual woman would never receive offers to be raped straight.  Rich white women would not be considered fair game because they live in trailer parks or in predominantly poor, of color communities.  The intersectionality that plays into who can be raped and who can be ignored is critical in how the media have portrayed this woman and have all but absolved Dominique Strauss-Kahn.  

Rape cases in America have not evolved from the he-said she-said investigations.  You know what?  Because for a long time, “that’s what she said” was enough when “she” was a white woman.  And that is SO important here.  You don’t think dog whistles aren’t sounding and relating this to the Duke lacrosse case or the Tawana Brawley case?  

I’m not saying this post isn’t intelligently written.  I’m saying it’s shallow because without including those very important contexts, it’s fucking naive.

I wish oil corporations were investigated with the same fervor and intensity as rape victims of high profile politicians.

Bolding mine.

Exactly.  Perhaps she should read a bit of Ida B. Wells….

I also think it’s far to kind to say Jill is “naive”. There is no reason for her to be naive, and I don’t believe that she is. I think she’s just so damn privileged that it either didn’t occur to her that her analysis would be incomplete by ignoring these aspects, and/or that she willfully decided that it was okay to leave them out because they don’t speak to HER needs. Ya’ll need to stop giving the benefit of the doubt to people that keep fucking up in the same ways over and over AND HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE INFO TO DO BETTER over and over.

(Source: lipsredasroses, via existentialcrisisfactory)

"Well, I am one who doesn’t believe in deluding myself. I’m not going to sit at your table and watch you eat, with nothing on my plate, and call myself a diner. Sitting at the table doesn’t make you a diner, unless you eat some of what’s on that plate. Being here in America doesn’t make you an American. Being born here in America doesn’t make you an American. Why, if birth made you American, you wouldn’t need any legislation; you wouldn’t need any amendments to the Constitution; you wouldn’t be faced with civil-rights filibustering in Washington, D.C., right now. They don’t have to pass civil-rights legislation to make a Polack an American.
No, I’m not an American. I’m one of the 22 million black people who are the victims of Americanism. One of the 22 million black people who are the victims of democracy, nothing but disguised hypocrisy. So, I’m not standing here speaking to you as an American, or a patriot, or a flag-saluter, or a flag-waver — no, not I. I’m speaking as a victim of this American system. And I see America through the eyes of the victim. I don’t see any American dream; I see an American nightmare."
