Womanhood isn’t sparkles and dollies and pink. It is being told you are second class from the minute you are born, it is the expectation of rape, abuse and assault. It is the 100000 other things which women are subjected to under patriarchy. It is not something you put on when you feel like it, it is a role you are forced into by the basis of sex. This happens because we have vaginas, and because of the gender assigned to biology which creates women as an inferior class. Gender needs to be abolished, and women need to be allowed to speak on the biological reality of their lives. 

Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenges, wish for more wisdom. The major value in life is not what you get. The major value in life is what you become. Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become.

People don’t like love, they like that flittery flirty feeling. They don’t love love - love is sacrificial, love is ferocious, it’s not emotive. Our culture doesn’t love love, it loves the idea of love. It wants the emotion without paying anything for it. It’s ridiculous.

Master Post on Why John Lennon is Shit

theroguefeminist:

So here’s a master post of John Lennon’s shittiness. I added much more info about cultural appropriation in his music. I also submitted this to Your Fave is Problematic. :3

Sexism/abuse

Homophobia and antisemitism

Racism

Ableism

Harassment/bullying/acts of violence

  • Committed various humiliating/violent acts toward strangers and friends: threw knives at people in the audience at concerts, being a violent drunk and getting in fights with friends, etc.; also dubbed Germans at a concert “Nazis” and “Hitlerites”
  • he may have been responsible for the death of former bandmate Stuart Sutcliffe, on top of more heinous behavior, including urinating on nuns
  • Edit: there are tons of conflicting accounts of Stuart Sutcliffe’s
    death. There’s this account from Sutfliffe’s sister that Lennon beat Sutcliffe savagely after learning he was leaving the group—which may or may not have lead to death by complications later (but she also claims the beating didn’t lead to his death, but it still did damage). There are other accounts which claim that thugs attacked Sutcliffe and gave him the injury or that Sutcliffe fell down a flight of stairs— there were even rumors of it being caused by amphetamine use or a tumor (those seem to be bogus)— we can’t know for sure what the true story is (but it’s not unthinkable that someone with Lennon’s history of abuse would do this)
