I’ve learnt that being a feminist doesn’t mean you will never fuck up again. We are undoing years of internalised misogyny, racism, homophobia, ableism, transphobia, prejudices, and sterotypes.
I’m fat, queer and genderfluid; and I still say offensive things about all of the things that I am. The point is to recognise when you do it, and to stop doing it again.
"But still she plays the victim, unable to see a pattern. She was drunk aged 12; four years later, at that rave, she was drinking again, which indirectly led to her being date raped. If she does not learn from her behaviour, then how will her readers?"
This was written in a Daily Mail review of Tulisa Contostavlos’ autobiography.
I immediately felt angry after I read this. When will people learn that RAPISTS cause rape, not the victim. Tulisa was drunk but she trusted the people she was with and they betrayed her.

Violence is a choice a man makes and he alone is responsible for it.”-Patrick Stewart

Notice anything? The worst thing you can call a girl is a girl. The worst thing you can call a guy is a girl. Being a woman is the ultimate insult. Now tell me that’s not royally fucked up.
