lesbolution is terf. are you?

themotherandthewhore:

being critical of gender makes you a ‘terf’? the root of women’s subordination is gender/biological essentialism, that somehow women are ‘innately’ submissive (and other gender stereotypes)

I refuse to conform to liberal ideas of gender i.e gender is “natural” but also a choice? no one is naturally subordinate to another (men as a gender caste versus women as a gender caste). 

gender =/= natural it’s a social construct, if we can all agree on this why not abolish it?

with that said, I express myself androgynous, and I don’t care if someone expresses themselves as a specific gender, but shall we not uphold the gender binary? because it’s not just a binary it’s a hierarchy,  

Advertising should not communicate any discrimination as a result of skin colour. These ads should not reinforce negative social stereotyping on the basis of skin colour. Specifically, advertising should not directly or implicitly show people with darker skin in a way which is widely seen as unattractive, unhappy, depressed, or concerned. These ads should not portray people with darker skin in a way which is widely seen as at a disadvantage of any kind, or inferior, or unsuccessful in any aspect of life particularly in relation to being attractive to the opposite sex, matrimony, job placement, promotions, and other prospects.

In the pre-usage depiction of product, special care should be taken to ensure that the expression of the model/s in the real and graphical representation should not be negative in a way which is widely seen as unattractive, unhappy, depressed, or concerned.

Advertising should not associate darker or lighter colour skin with any particular socio-economic strata, caste, community, religion, profession, or ethnicity.

Advertising should not perpetuate gender-based discrimination because of skin colour.
