As long as women are using class or race power to dominate other women, feminist sisterhood cannot be fully realized.

Gendered chips.
In case you couldn’t tell which one was the manly chip for men, they helpfully labeled the sizing as “man sized” (not 4 women’s but 4 men’s even tho both these packets are identical sizing shhh).
Men’s egos are so weak they can’t even eat delicious potato treats without their masculinity being reaffirmed.

A kid on the bus had an anteater plastic toy which he showed to me and I said “what do you have?” And he said “dad says it is an armadildo”.

His mum looked so unimpressed.

tell a self proclaimed male feminist that he cant be a feminist and watch him turn in to the biggest misogynist abusive shit within 0.2 seconds. happens 100% of the time.

Maybe if you weren’t being a bitch to people trying to help you they wouldn’t be a dick in return.

i wonder if men are actually trying to prove my point on purpose?

who is this bitch reporter

this reporter is the stupidest woman ive ever heard in my life

Wow so this is heaps offensive and racist.

Send a complaint to CNN about Jeanne Moos and her racist report.

"Ms Moos has apologised for the tone of the story, saying she wasn’t making fun of Maori traditions and was only having fun with the image of a duchess meeting someone she described as a "bare-bottomed warrior in a thong".

She was making fun of Maori traditions though? Ugh I hate those non-apologies.

The reason racism is a feminist issue is easily explained by the inherent definition of feminism. Feminism is the political theory and practice to free all women: women of color, working-class women, poor women, physically challenged women, lesbians, old women –as well as white economically privileged heterosexual women. Anything less than this is not feminism, but merely female self-aggrandizement.
