"A woman’s labor includes whatever she is expected to do for no money as well what she may choose or be coerced into doing in order to have money to care for her family and herself."

— Anne Firth Murray in the chapter Laboring in a Globalized World from her book From Outrage to Courage. (via intlwomenshealth)

"In general, I think we need to move away from the premise that being a good person is a fixed immutable characteristic and shift towards seeing being good as a practice. And it is a practice that we carry out by engaging with our imperfections. We need to shift towards thinking that being a good person is like being a clean person. Being a clean person is something you maintain and work on every day.We don’t assume ‘I am a clean person therefore I don’t need to brush my teeth.’ When someone suggests to us that we have something stuck in our teeth we don’t say to them ‘What do you mean I have something stuck in my teeth—but I’m a clean person?!’"

“There is this new movement that is trying to teach people about the dangers of cutting their daughters. It is good for us to be able to discuss these things in school. We have been able to form our own opinions about the issue.”

“White sexual imperialism, through rape and war, created the hyper-sexualized stereotype of the Asian woman. This stereotype in turn fostered the over-prevalence of Asian women in pornography, the mail-order bride phenomenon, the Asian fetish syndrome, and worst of all, sexual violence against Asian women.”

"Quite honestly, my objection to rape jokes is not even because I particularly find the jokes personally triggering anymore; I generally just find them pathetic and inexplicable. And while I’m bothered by the fact that the jokes normalize and effectively minimize the severity of rape and thus perpetuate the rape culture, I’m more bothered by the thought of a woman who’s recently been raped, who’s just experienced what may be the worst thing that will ever happen to her, and goes to the site of her favorite webcomic, or turns on the telly, or goes to the cinema, or a comedy club, to have a much-needed laugh—only to see that horrible, life-changing thing used as the butt of a joke. I don’t understand—and I don’t believe I ever will—why anyone wants to be the person who sends that shiver down her spine, who makes her eyes burn hot with tears at an unwanted memory while everyone else laughs and laughs."

This is the most spot on description of how I feel about rape jokes I’ve seen.

There is a difference between being a White Feminist and being a part of ~*White Feminism*~.

The former:

You’re a Feminist. You are White.

The latter:

Your Feminism is White-centric and ignores the specialized issues of Women of Color.
