My Politics

My Politics

Centre-Right on the political spectrum
 

I believe in small government and economic freedom. I am pro-capital punishment, pro-gun rights, and I believe in strong national defence

Radical Feminism:
 
I am a radical feminist and I believe in the liberation of women from oppressive patriarchal ideals. I do not believe feminism is about hating men or being equal to men, it has very little to do with men. I do not hate men personally; fighting for women, however, is my priority. 
Pro Choice:
I am unequivocally, vehemently pro-choice. It is the right of every woman (adult human female) to control what happens to her body. The rights of a foetus do not supercede the rights of a living, breathing, woman. Women are important
 
Trans-Critical:
 
I am not transphobic. I believe that trans people should have legal and medical rights and should not be discriminated against in life. However, I do not believe in gender (please do not confuse biological sex with gender; the former does exist while the latter is socially constructed) because it is inherently harmful to women (and non-conforming men). I believe in women-born-women spaces; females deserve their own spaces, just as trans people and other groups deserve their own spaces. I do not believe you can think your way out of biological reality; women are adult human females and men are adult human males. I do not think there is such a thing as a “female penis” or  a “male vagina”. 
Anti-Homophobia
I am strongly against homophobia and am a proud supporter of the LGB community. I do whatever I can to be a good ally to bisexuals, gays and lesbians and I would like to work toward ending discrimination (both legal and societal) against them. 
Anti-Racism
I am a woman of colour. Racism is an issue that affects me personally, and it is something I would like to see end. 
Pro-Ana
I feel I need to explain this because of the millions of questions I’ve received asking how I can be a feminist yet still be pro ana. I am a bulimic, and I have been for a while now. I used to post thinspo and other weight loss motivational things for myself, and I gained a following of other pro-ana and pro-ed girls. I leave my page open to them because I would like to help them whenever possible (as I share their experiences and will not offer judgement, unlike those who do not understand because they have never suffered). I also need to vent about my ed sometimes, and I’ve found the community to be one of the most supportive (not encouraging) ones around, apart from the radical feminists, and I would like to make it clear that I am neither pro-ed nor pro-recovery for myself. My mood fluctuates as does my ED. I am receiving psychiatric help about it, but sometimes I need to talk to like minded individuals. 
Trigger Warnings:
I do not use trigger warnings, unless I talk about rape.
