Hmmmmm I wonder why you never see photos of men with their mouths taped shut in the name of protesting censorship.

“Really confused by all these progressives pushing for voter registration and using Hip Hop to influence the youth to vote. Vote for who? Obama? Romney? What side are yall on?

i think the best way to become a commie [ETA: and/or radfem] is to hang out with anarchists for a few months and really get to know them to the point where you become so repulsed by their politics and lifestyles you start to automatically gravitate towards the things they hate and fear the most, like states and vanguard parties and third-world nationalism and kink-shaming and critiques of gender and frowny-boy asceticism and critical thinking
This is exactly how I got where I am today. Thanks, anarchism!

Holy shit, thanks you all!
I’m not “just” a radical feminist, I’m also an ex-punk and socialist anarchist. I seen a lot of the left, and not just what I’ve written here so far. This will motivate me to write moar!
Check the “radical assholes” tag too. (I was also trying to make tags for “lefty embarrassments” and “radical embarrassments”, but I didn’t always spell “embarrassment” correctly … so everything should be marked with one or both kinds of “asshole” instead.)
