If your movement truly is about equality, then work on putting a stop to misogyny AND misandry.
Okay, I’ll do that.
Misandry’s over. Turns out it never really existed.
Can we get back to talking about real things now?
Feminism as a movement is not about prioritizing the feelings of cis men as above or equal to our own. You are welcome to be an ally for us. But calling yourself feminist is invading a movement that was not made for you and in which your voice is not necessary and often not wanted. It is male privilege to think you are entitled to join and gain a title in any club, group or movement you want. I’ve noticed that cis men who insist on being called “feminists” rather than “feminist allies” put their own feelings and need for legitimacy/validation above the actual goals and priorities of feminism. Basically, if a man says he’s a feminist and, when asked by us to call himself a “feminist ally” instead, he refuses, he proves that he doesn’t actually care about women or our needs and feelings, and he has no right to be involved in feminism in any way.
oh shit theres a baby on board? fuck well i guess i wont rear end you like i normally would
the baby on board sign is to alert paramedics in the event of a crash that theres a baby that needs to be attended to first u absolute fucking walnut
except that’s still not true at allllllllll it’s just trying to make people more courteous/safer drivers around vehicles with babies in it, like really, paramedics are prob. able to tell if there’s a baby inside by seeing the BABY CAR SEAT AND BABY SHIT not some piddly fucking sign that is probably invisible behind shattered glass or totally gone if the car rolled on its side
Baby on Board signs exist to serve two purposes:
1. make money off of parents who will buy anything if they think it might keep their kid just a little more safe
2. provide inspiration for the Be Sharps’ classic hit song
