So I like how everyone comes together on issues of misogyny and violence against women while conveniently ignoring the ways they dehumanize and sexualize Native American women. Native women are one of the groups most targeted by violence but as always feminism likes to overlook the hundreds of (murdered and missing indigenous women) #mmiw
Jezebel, one of the websites who has posted several articles about the harm of cultural appropriation and dehumanization of native women is promoting one of the people who does just that.
Then please do the survey for my Masters dissertation.
it takes max 5 minutes, is totally anonymous and would really help me out. You don’t have to write any long answers, just answer a few rating questions. It requires very little effort but is huge for me.
You would have my eternal gratitude and endless good karma ;)
If you have any questions please feel free to ask me!
There’s this shitty thing that happens when you learn about the reality of racism, sexism and misogyny. You start to hear it from the mouths of your parents, grandparents, friends and siblings and you can’t ignore it anymore but you’ll see how many of them will ignore you when you speak out about it.

"While it’s a common assumption that women simply have more clothing items in their closets than men, that also reflects social necessity. Women can be (and are) fired for not being attractive enough, for not wearing enough make-up, for being too attractive or for not putting out the right "look". And being attractive isn’t just about whether or not your face is pretty; it’s about how you signal your social class and your sexual availability." -Jill Fillpovic, The Guardian
