fem(mes) who think fem(me) might be a misogynist identity, i got some stuff to say to you. i know it’s cliche, but i wanna say it anyway. here goes.
be fierce (if you like), be proud. wear your makeup as loud as you please (or not) and read this article.
you are not the sick product of the patriarchy; you are unique and dazzling fem(mes)! the notions that all fem(mes) are women, that all women are fem(mes), and that all fem(mes) are passive and weak are the sick products of the patriarchy, not your subversive femininity.
cuz femininity can be subversive. every time a fem(me) decorates themself with the trappings of their dazzling choosing for THEMSELF, they tell misogynists to fucking get over their shit. cuz fem(me) is the reclamation of pride in femininity, isn’t it?

fem(mes), please tell me if this post is problematic in any way. I don’t id as fem(me) and I’d love some feedback.
