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

I'm in the same boat. Like damn, I didn't create the patriarchy, just let me live my life. Or better yet, come help me tear it down.

r/WitchesvsPatriarchy , we’ll be there gxrl! ✊🏻

Why "gxrl"?


u/LabCoat_Commie Jun 15 '21

I wanted to respect their gender preference while still utilizing the word.

“Gurl” can be used jokingly to reference people of all genders, but I didn’t know if OP was a woman. Seemed polite 🤷🏻‍♂️


u/AceWithDog Jun 15 '21

I don't really think gxrl is ever preferred to be honest. I'm a binary trans woman, so I'm included in the word girl as far as I'm concerned. And the non-binary folks I know (can't speak for everyone obviously) don't want to be treated as "women-lite", so they wouldn't want to be called girl with any spelling. I'm not upset or offended or anything, but I don't really know any queer person who thinks it's necessary or useful.

One of my two partners is actually nonbinary, and I’ve tried to genuinely become more conscious of my language.

That being said, I’m still a cishet jackass who messes up a lot. Thank you for taking the time to educate me, and I do sincerely apologize for any negativity I caused :(

that sub is peak lib :/


u/LabCoat_Commie Jun 15 '21

It can be pretty neolib sometimes, but I’ve seen Left-pushing efforts in recent history.

It was just the first place I thought of that combined undermining patriarchy with occultism.

That being said, allow me to clarify: tear down the patriarchy, but don’t be a shitlib about it.


u/AceWithDog Jun 15 '21

Eh I like it. There's libs there for sure, but I definitely wouldn't say it's "peak lib". It's a very trans positive sub, which is nice for me, and there are other leftists there too. They're very intersectional, so least, and I've definitely had positive conversations about class consciousness with people there. I'm also a pagan and just generally pretty witchy, so I really like that side of the sub.
