Declaration of Empowerment

They say men are dominate and females submissive.

They say men are in control and females in constant terror.

They claim that females are weak, incapable, and child-like in our inability to make competent choices.

They say we are meant for the softer arenas of life, that we are physically and mentally the weaker sex.

They have forced our victim-hood and mocked our survival.

They believe they will recreate the world in their image, but they forget-creation is female.

We will not settle quietly into their narrative.

We will not allow our oppressors to dictate our truths.

No, we must rise. We must resist.

Together, we as females, must correct the wrongs acted upon us. Together, we must change the narrative.

No longer shall we sit idly by while our oppressors tell tale of our inability to fight, protect, and maintain fully actualized lives.

No longer will we allow the narrative to be sold that men are in control, that men create our stories, that we hide in fear of their violence, that still we remain silent.

We must stand together to denounce these lies and twisted truths.

We, you, are strong, capable, and ready to take back your story.

Stand now and never settle for any narrative, but strength.

We are the creators, the mothers, the teachers, the architects of the future.

Resist, remove, and rejoice my sisters knowing even in this era of uncertainty it is you who will empower the next generation.

Victimhood

I don’t need your victimhood
I don’t need your help
I have waged my own way
while you played with yourself.
Parade about equality
when all you want is
everything;
the power, the man, the wedding ring-
life that’s fair to femininity-
while you destroy
the enemy?
I don’t need your victims tale
I don’t need your progress
I have waged a war in kind
to end the world you promised
protest all you want
but never do define
you are exactly
the very stereotypes
you mime.
Broken little girls
all you do is whine-
imagine all the trauma,
nightmares are your bribe,
scream until you’re crying
then say it’s all their fault
but never actually fight for change
just hold another woman’s march.

Berkeley

Why is it
that all I see
is upper class society
trying to stop the fascist regime
to save the rest of us ignorant fiends?
Kill the bigots-set us free-
do you even know anything about poverty?
Or just what you’ve learned from Gaga and scene-John Legend taught
you what we need?
What the fuck does he know about
living poor like me?
Pronouns and safe spaces
that what you sell us.
When white privilege is your rhetoric
you’ve clearly forgotten how the rest of us live.
You aren’t heroes- super or zero,
just cowards and ignorant excuses for people.
Antifa: Laguna Beach? Beverley Hills and other golden streets
how are you fighting for the lowly?
Take the fucking mask off if you wanna throw heat
just a walking ego, a child running with needles-touch that flame
blame me though!
Antifa-the middle class dies
and this is what we’re left with?

Cherno Biko

What a lady
a real goddess
proving to the mass
she’s flawless
shining through
this white is right
breaking out of
stereotypes.
Transcending all
your morality
just ignorant hypocrisy.
Cherno Biko
an idol queen
a perfect example
of a woman’s theme:
all snakes in the grass-
Biko takes
doesn’t ask-
he’s a rapist and a hack.
The devil in a dress
just a delusional
fetishizer
forcing transmen
to bare ‘her’ child?
Apologize as the victim
the hero of this movement
should be jailed
and left to ruin.

Fishsticks

Tell me all your stories
and write them down for glory
keeping all the mornings
just as well.
You don’t live for love
never growing up
just a bank account
without the common wealth.
You don’t know the morals
fighting truth with quarrels
making like it’s all just common sense.
Take another gender class
look at systems through the ass
a donkey is no horse
no matter how you ask.

Make me

Affirmation, Affirmation
we will force your recognition
we will force the change,
additions,
to the science by omission,
reinvent the definition
change the facts to your own diction,
rewriting facts with ignorant precision.
Affirmation, affirmation
force the work on your neighbor,
force the majority to do you a favor.
Part of being people is picking up yourself,
part of being happy is stable mental health.
No one deserves to die for being themselves-
fight for your life,
but leave the thought out?
Screaming for protection
while transforming yourself?
If the solutions exterior
you are deluding the help
asking for a surgery to affirm
the shell
leaving all the rest to wallow and wail-born in the wrong body-
how can you tell?
You want some affirmation
maybe start with yourself?

I see the light!

Have you heard about this?
The woke misogynist
apparently a man just presenting
as a feminist.
Wears a pussy hat
while marching with the chicks
just a wolf in sheep’s clothing
not a product of the rhetoric.
Has read more feminist literature
than a pioneer riot girl,
than an academic scholar,
than the writer and the author-
understands the mission statement
can repeat it-
no hesitation.
Basically the poster child
of the movement
in denial-
no more blood-too infantile
this should show the truth
through guile
woken up, but still on fire-
female feminist: the ‘woke’ pariah-
akin to ‘woke’ misogynist,
where do you think they learnt that rhetoric?

Cut off your tits

Feminism has taught me;
women are weak,
a product of a harsh society,
victims of their own biology,
never surpassing what’s meant to be?
Feminism sold me
a story not my own, see?
Raised on strength and knowing
that I make my own way.
That’s what my father taught me
don’t take this the wrong way-women beat me mostly.
Telling me I’m not queen
they didn’t even want me
a product of their own team!
My gender disowned me.
But I should play the old way?
I should love the words you say?
Raging statistics that just aren’t true!
Paid cents to his dollars
a vain pursuit
chivalry is dead
whoop de doo
until you know you’re on a date?
Feminist expects the man to pay.
Free the nipple but don’t sexualize-take his top off
he’s just a guy!
These double standards
are just fucking lies!
Not even standards just a blatant disguise
women are the majority
but we still feel victimized?
You keep the theory
I’ll keep my pride.
Feminists have told me-
cut off my tits
just because I’m not
buying their shit?
Feminist should turn in their cunts and their breast
you don’t what being a woman truly is.

Mental gymnastics

Compiled of March 16-17 tweets from: Professor Fleming @alwaystheself

I don’t think it ever makes sense
to tell women
to “just shut up” about our
experiences of gender.
But women must find a way to talk about our *own* subjective experiences…
which is why I often ask
*white* women to
explicitly
position themselves as *white* women
so you can tell us about *white* womanhood.
Nope.
The point is that
excluding *trans*
women from womanhood
(as Adichie did)
contributes to *trans*
women’s oppression
I’m making the assumption
that *cis* women can’t speak to
or
fully understand
*trans* experiences (plural)-
and
vice versa.
People who can’t admit that
distinguishing
*trans* women from “women”-
for *trans* women who seek to describe
what it means to be
*cis*
I ask that you
acknowledge
*cis* women’s views and knowledge on the matter.
Understanding *trans* women as “women”
had required me
to rethink/relinquish
the basis upon which
I’ve understood and
lived
womanhood.

That said,
marginalized folk
can and do
intimate
dominate folk
into silence.

Educate me

Tell me what a female is;
a compilation of unhinged,
a figure made of porcelain-
with
colored vary tones of skin,
a body dressed in red ribbons,
a creature of no consequence.

Tell me what a female is-
I’ve been dying to be let in
to the secrets of my slit-
unknowing is like oxygen!
My lungs are desperate
to breathe again.

Tell me what a female is!
I’ve lived decades so ignorant,
as to my own narrative-
caught up in the experiences.
Guess that’s wrong due to your existence
being a woman is just some lipstick?

Upon second thought,
I think it’s just you
how ’bout
define yourself
not my poon.
