Anyone is free to inbox me for a chat 🙂

I may be late to reply sometimes but I am always open to talk about anything, including non-radfem stuff!


I hope all the radfem/rad leaning/baby radfem/etc girls and women on here are having a great day. We don’t post nice stuff about each other enough so with that said: there’s tons of really amazing women on here who I hope know they’re really amazing and I hope you all have great days

Pet Peeve

I cannot STAND when people (mostly liberals/libfems) say “my feminism this, my feminism that”…

🌸Feminism is a movement, not an identity.🌸

🌺Feminism is a collective struggle, not an individual ideology.🌺

Mate, it’s not like a cake that you could get personalized at ya bakery. It’s a mass group of individuals coming together to reach clearly defined goals. Liberals say that we don’t know “real feminism”, yet skate over feminism 101.


How come when a radfem is young, people say “the terfs got to her early…” Like. Do you think “the terfs” messaged my main blog and fed me radfem content 24/7 until I converted? Do you think they physically showed up at my door like “have you heard of our lord and savior Andrea Dworkin??” Do you think they kidnapped me and forced me to read feminist literature??? I had literally never interacted with a radfem until I stumbled across their blogs and realized their ideas made sense. The terfs did not get to me… I came to the terfs.
