don’t use uteruses as symbol for feminism ok
- you’re excluding trans women
- you’re including some trans men
- you’re excluding cis women who may not have a uterus because they’ve lost it because of or to avoid #cancer
stop doing this it’s so gross
Uteruses are inseparable from feminism, and will continue to be so as long as people (and yes, primarily women) are targeted for having uteruses, through control of them and control of the overall bodies that possess them. And what, we’re going to say that women who want to reclaim that body part, which has been used to oppress them, and transform it into a symbol of power against their oppressors, shouldn’t be allowed to?
Are we going to start saying abortion and birth control aren’t key components of modern-day feminism? That is the logical next step of this kind of thinking. You can’t separate female anatomy from those issues. Are we going to pretend that babies aren’t abused and murdered *precisely for* possessing the kind of bodies that contain uteruses?
What movement is going to seek to remedy these injustices if not feminism? The existence of people with sex dysphoria does not somehow negate the millenia of oppression that has been firmly based ON SEX, and which continues today. I ask again, what movement is going to seek to remedy these injustices if not feminism?
Yeah, but at the same time, uterus-based feminism often ends up leading to that pseudo-anarchist, anti-medicine, anti-science, “you’re not a ~real wombyn~ if you don’t have a litter of kids”, “your period is only painful because of patriarchy” brand of shitty feminism. You know the shit I mean. Like it’s definitely possible to go too far in the other direction.
