Anonymous said: First of all, I think you and your blog are amazing. I've been following for a while now, but am still pretty new to radical feminist theory and was wondering if you had any recommendations for introductory literature (sorry if this has been asked before). Thanks!


Thank you, that’s amazing! I would recommend checking out for “intro” literature Feminism is for Everybody by bell hooks, Intercourse by Andrea Dworkin, and Delusions of Gender by Cordelia Fine. Those are all either on radfem.org or in my /resources tag.










Female pilots edited out of the Star Wars movies.

I saw the tweets about this today, and I was like oh yeah, I remember hearing about that.

And then I saw the pictures and just— wow. What it would have meant to have these women in the movie, all this time. I can’t properly articulate it but it’s hitting me unexpectedly hard.

Wow thats a shame, even a nice old lady too.  These Space Valkyries  should have been left in.

They really should have.

I lived, ate, and breathed Star Wars from age 2 until 2005 when RotS finally beat the enthusiasm out of me, and I have NEVER, EVER in all my reading on behind-the-scenes and makings-of heard of these shots. It’s a shame there was no relaunched edit of the original trilogy they could have slipped these in OH FUCKING WAIT THERE’S BEEN LIKE 3 OF THOSE NOW.

Fuck. FUCK. Whoever decided to edit out and bury these needs to french kiss an angle grinder.

I want to see the old lady in the A-Wing. Seriously, it’s like, she’s somebody’s grandma. Some kid in the Outer Rim Territories got greased by the Empire for seeing something she wasn’t supposed to see, and her grandma, the bush pilot, decided “Fuck this, I’m gonna strap on an fighter and make the Empire fucking PAY for the moment it decided to fuck with MY FAMILY.”


These are quickly being put into the “always reblog” category.

Whenever there is a war, there are women who are warriors. Then they get erased from history. Happens in real wars and fictional ones alike.

I know it says fangirls, but a lot of guys have the same "Fangirl" attitude and I think it would be cool if you represented that! But, even if you don't, I really love all your work! Especially the one about spoilers that just came out! AH It was great! :D


Thank you
I’ve been asked about the subject of fanboys in my videos before 

Bottom line: Fanboys and Male geeks get LOADS of attention in the media as not only consumers, but characters. The fanboy was represented and explored in tons of cases, some of them better, some of them worse, when female fans did not, to say the least.
So while I’ve thought about it, for now I still feel obligated to share a small spot in the edge of the internet that is my channel for female fans. There’s so much more to explore and talk about.

Anonymous said: It terrifies me how Emma Watson gave a speech on feminism that was so carefully geared not to offend the sensibilities of men, and they still threatened her with violence and exposure in a horrifying way. These men don't hate feminism, they hate women plain and simple


I think it’s a defining moment in the radicalization of young women when they realize men, as a class, absolutely and violently hate them.






Poor baby. LOL

literally almost every person reblogging this is so anti-white-cis-straight-males that it actually hurts my soul

is this really what tumblr has come to, saying someone is an arsehole for getting upset when he’s emotionally abused, purely because he’s a straight cisgender white guy? because that’s fucked up

Men who think women unlearning harmful socialization and recognizing oppressive social power structures for what they are is emotional abuse, though.
