DEAR EMMA WATSON

Where was MY right to decide what to do with my body? It wasn’t in the room where my parents paid a doctor to cut the skin off my penis when I was a mere minutes old!!

I bet your clit and vulva are still intact.

Tell me again how oppressed you are by this patriarchy?

Dear thewhoviantheatregeek

Please do not belittle female circumcision by comparing it to male circumcision.

Male circumcision is not done to oppress men or destroy their sexuality but for either religious or health reasons. Removing the foreskin does not prevent sex, or damage the penis. You were not genetically mutilated.

Female circumcision involves removing the clitoris, or the vulva, sometimes it involves cutting the inside of the vagina and sowing it shut so that it heals over. Sometimes all of the above. It is oppressive, it is always painful and often fatal, and is still practised in many countries around the world with the goal of oppressing women under extreme patriarchal regimes.

Emma Watson may not suffer from those regimes directly in the way you’re referring to, but she spoke very frankly about how she has had a very privileged life. She is using that privilege to stand up for those who are not as fortunate. 

Tell me again how you are helping by making it about you?

jesuschristgrl just pointed out to me that this sign says genetically mutilated since birth. Not genitally. Genetically. It’s a whole new breed of super-villian. 

Noticed that too. Not only did they remove the foreskin they used gamma radiation to ensure it would never grow back.

Seriously though the removal of the foreskin is at worst a misguided if well intentioned action to enhance the penis or protect it from infection…patriarchy in its purest I’d say.

If anyone can say with a straight face that their penis lacking a foreskin is a constant reminder that their sexuality is dangerous, unclean, and an affront to God…I won’t be able to hear them finish because I will be vomiting.

It’s almost like you’re saying that the patriarchy hurts everyone. I kinda feel like Emma Watson explicitly said that, too, but like, I wanna yell until everyone pays attention to me again??? We need to stop feminism, a movement actively seeking to confront the patriarchy that hurts all of us, cause like, it’s not about me enough???

destroy this new idea that a woman can’t be strong if she cries over a man she’s lost. destroy the idea that you have to be cold and emotionally detached in order to be a strong woman

it’s taken me a really long time to unlearn this.

Anonymous: you are a cunt. you and your fake feminist views. cunts.

feehlo:

You essentially just called me a vagina. They are very durable and strong and quite a natural wonder. I’ll take that as a compliment, thank you 😊.

"fake feminist views" I mean, ???
