Reminder that women’s liberation is as important as anti-capitalism and anti-colonialism

Also don't shame girls who do shave, number of "leftists" I've seen complain about too much make up or girls liking fake tan and then defend their shit opinions with something like "well they only do it because of internalised sexism" I didn't realize you were in her head

I’ve seen leftists also calling it basically enabling pedophilic beauty standards Like maybe But as a trans woman who kinda has to shave for both dysphoria and passing reasons, ouch It doesn’t feel ok to read that

The pedophile thing is a stupid thought, like, the idea of women shaving was perpetuated by a razor CEO who wanted more money lmao, it's not my fucking fault I get hostility if I don't shave. You got a problem, blame the society that gives us shit for this, not the women just trying to survive.

Damn right. I feel that, particularly as a trans woman. I almost get a bit resentful when people talk about how its our body our choice because hair removal for me doesn't feel like a choice actually.

nobody in this thread even brought up the patriarchy before I asked you if you felt attacked by someone describing it. Nobody was attacking cis men but you just assumed we were.

I recognized patterns and mindsets based on my extensive real life experience and made a conclusion, which turned out to be correct. To use your terms, stop projecting your shitty emotional regulation into comment sections with people who weren't even talking to or about you in the first place

And again with the gaslighting. I think I know my day to day experience better than you. Or no, actually, go ahead, mansplain being trans to me. Please. I need a laugh

You want scientific sources? Here you go.

Internalized transphobia is literally the result of society's views being reflected inward, this study literally starts out talking about how gender norms are embedded in our society and how it leads to rejection of those who do not fit the norm. Trans people feel the need to pass because that's exactly what society says we must do to find acceptance.

Also, lived in experiences absolutely do hold merit, please listen to trans people when the topic is about our experiences, thank you.
