I am so sick and tired of hearing people say that feminist artists depicting female sexual and reproductive organs are “transphobic”. Women have been beaten into oppression for centuries on the axis of our bodies and now we cant even show love and support for our own bodies and for other women to…
Who’s saying this? Like specifically.
Nobody is saying its transphobic per se, they are saying the gendering of organs is. Like people oppress me for being a woman, and for being trans so idk what shes crying about. Nobody oppresses me for having a vagina, they oppress me because im a woman, and trans.
Well I’m not really sure what world you live in where women aren’t oppressed for their vaginas and biological realities but here in this world:
- for centuries women were denied pain relief during childbirth because the pain of childbirth was considered punishment for the sin of being a woman
- Woman are struggling to get hired into positions of power in case they get pregnant [x]
- There are “kinksters” out there who reduce women down to “fuck holes” and believe they have no place in society other than to please men sexually
- There are still people today, in this day and age, who believe women don’t deserve positions of power because our periods make us “irrational” [x]
- When I was raped, he told me that I shouldn’t worry, that it’s natural, that this is why I was born with a vagina.
- There are still people who believe women’s reproductive rights should be up for debate and women are denied life-saving treatment because that treatment also doubles up as contraception
- Women are more likely to die from heart attacks because they experience heart attacks differently from men and PSAs regarding heart attacks never show women because it is seen as indecent to show female breasts in public an on tv.
I didn’t have to time to find links for all of them, but if you research it you’ll find it. These are just a few examples of how women are oppressed for our biological realities. My womanhood = my femaleness = my sexual and reproductive organs. My oppression is a part of my identity and is linked directly to my biology and my female organs and I am not going to have that taken away from me.
