"I had a really interesting conversation with a white male educator and he asked me about the relevance. He went to an Ivy League school and said he would have really benefited from having women like the women who choose Spelman at my college. He said that would have really benefitted his education. I understood what he was saying, but he failed to realize the privilege in his statement. The parent who writes that check for their daughter to go to college is not thinking, “she’s going to help someone else get a good education.” They’re writing that check because this is the best possible experience for their daughter. And one of the benefits for American higher education is that there are a lot of different schools to choose from. If that guy really wanted access to smart, Spelman women he could have enrolled at Morehouse."

I could kinda understand bc that persons mean we trans guys can get pregnant but “uterus bearer”? And you’re not gonna see me jump into abortion argument saying “we men have rights!” The anti abortion thing is rooted in sexism and linked to a long history of guys stealing women’s rights.

"Within the lesbian community I am Black, and within the Black community I am a lesbian. Any attack against Black people is a lesbian and gay issue, because I and thousands of other Black women are part of the lesbian community. Any attack against lesbians and gays is a Black issue, because thousands of lesbians and gay men are Black. There is no hierarchy of oppression.

It is not accidental that the Family Protection Act, which is virulently anti-woman and anti-Black, is also anti-gay. As a Black person, I know who my enemies are, and when the Ku Klux Klan goes to court in Detroit to try and force the Board of Education to remove books the Klan believes “hint at homosexuality,” then I know I cannot afford the luxury of fighting one form of oppression only. I cannot afford to believe that freedom from intolerance is the right of only one particular group. And I cannot afford to choose between the fronts upon which I must battle these forces of discrimination, wherever they appear to destroy me. And when they appear to destroy me, it will not be long before they appear to destroy you."

Stop saying that “sex is a basic human need”.

"Give it to me straight doc, is he gonna be okay?"

"No ma’am I’m sorry but we were too late…your son just couldn’t get some. There was nothing we could do."

 Note: The REAL Piper of Orange is the New Black has clearly stated, "Well, you know, I’m bisexual so, I’m a part of the gay community.” Additionally she has pointed out that she came out at "either 18 or 19", and "had relationships with many, many women before I met Nora and after I met Nora."

So viewers should be aware that it was a "creative decision" of the shows writers, producers + NetFlix to minimize and erase the character’s actual + stated bisexuality by never using the "B-Word", turning her instead into a tired bisexual trope. This should not be viewed as at all realistic.

IRL Piper Kerman is a strong, interesting, out bisexual women in a different gender marriage, who participates in her LGBT Community and works hard for Prison Reform.

"BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MEN?!" - Is Feminism Sexist? (x)

Guess what? Feminism is beneficial for men. But even if it wasn’t, empowering women shouldn’t be limited or defined by what men think is important.
