I am going to take a break from social media so this will be my last post here for a while (I will be back eventually). I want to focus on my work and hopefully, in the future, I can expand my monthly donations to more charities like Feminists in Struggle (FIST), Nordic Model Now, and Free Hearts, Free Minds.

Before I go and officially start my break. I wanted to collect everyone's perspectives and ask one last question.

It has been crazy having to defend women as being a defined group of people that are autonomous and independent from males.

So if we did not have to spend so much time telling people that we deserve to be recognized and have rights on the basis of our sex...

...if people did not second guess the fundamental truth that women are female

...if this whole trans debate disappeared or never existed

...what feminist goal are you most passionate about?

If you were not distracted by this whole trans thing, what would you be working on?

What is your vision for feminist action in the future?

The issues facing women and girls in developing countries. Its the most dire feminist need in the world right now, far above the "1st World" gender wars. (Seriously, sometimes I stop and think about the rank fucking privilege to proclaims trans issues are THE human rights struggle of our modern times. Holy shit).

FGM, lack of education, child marriage, arranged marriage, period poverty, women essentially being "sold" by their families, forced to marry their rapists, femicide of infants....the list goes on and on and on.

People like to shit on globalization but we need to globalize human rights for women. I got accused once in one of my classes for being a "cultural chauvinist" by pointing out the differences in quality of life for women in developed countries versus undeveloped ones. (Ironically from the same dumb-ass SJWs who scream TWAW, lol...try that in Uganda.)

Something that made me so aware about the woman's place in the world was talking to a Palestine guy who grew up in Jordan, when he told me that if I were Jordan my brothers could kill me just for talking to him. Women in the west may have it pretty bad, but the reality of those women is much much worse and as long as this kind of thing is happening to women there, there's no liberation for any woman.

Yeah, reform immigration policies of First World countries: women, girls, and young sons only. A lottery approach or ???

Not to say there aren't many struggling men in those countries who deserve a better life, but migod think how many more women could have a chance at a decent life if only.
