this symbol does not represent mainstream feminism
this is the symbol for black feminism, that black feminists have created and been using for decades to represent our struggle against anti-black misogyny, hence the combination of the black power fist and the symbol for womanhood.
so stop tattooing yourself with this symbol and selling overpriced patches and pins on etsy, you are appropriating and profiting off the work of black feminists. Work that we have dedicated our lives to create and sustain, even though we are constantly erased from history. Respect our community, respect our activism, and stop spreading false information that distorts our history.
This is a “Family Portrait” of China’s 56 ethnic groups. Chen Haiwen, a photographer, recently lead a team of 14 photographers to create a book entitled, “Harmonious China: A Sketch of China’s 56 Ethnicities.” The team spent one year travelling all over China to complete the project. They ended up taking over 5.7 million photographs.

"Janet, you know how much I love you. I look up to you as a big sister. And this book really, in my eyes, made me see myself as not just the one who went through my experience alone. Every time I would read a page in your book, it would be like a black and white scene of a movie in my head of my life, of something that you experienced that I’ve experienced in some way. It’s really hard for me to express myself to people when it comes to experiences that I had whether it be good or bad. And for you to have written a book about that is really a blessing. It’s like…this is like the ten commandments for us right now. Like literally. It speaks truth. And with truth comes freedom." - CeCe McDonald
Part of what Cece McDonald said to Janet Mock in regards to her important, exquisitely written, groundbreaking book about being a trans woman of colour, Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More. Quote is from The Barnard Center For Research on Women annual salon that featured several panelists.
I’m against body shaming, but only for bodies I like! We SHOULD shame those damn fatties! Fatties don’t get to feel good about their bodies! I’m just worried about their health, because I’m a fucking concern troll.
That’s not what they were saying. Quit twisting people’s words. It was
About how if someone was unhealthy, obese or anorexic, that supporting them can be life threatening.
okay, here’s the problem with that shit; where do you decide someone’s weight is your problem? America is a part of conspiracy against fat people and is well known to misdiagnose or refuse to provide treatment or health care to pt who are overweight. And America still uses the BMI system to determine healthy weights, even though we know it it isn’t an accurate test. we are literally giving people the same test over and over knowing the answers might not be accurate or useful.
by saying this, you are saying you can decide when an overweight person’s weight is a problem. You are effectively joining the media in constantly blaming fat people for problems (such as health costs) in America. But here’s the thing; telling overweight people they’re unhealthy just makes them unhappy, which—guess what, hurts their health. People treat fatness like it’s disease, when it’s just one of many factors relating to a person’s health.
Are their situations where losing weight can positively affect your health? Yes. Where gaining weight can positively affect your health? Yes. But that isn’t for you to decide. If you’re not a medical practitioner, why would you get a say? How can you decide when a person’s weight is a problem before their doctor—who may or may not be bullshitting you anyways—whether or not a person is healthy, esp since just bc you’re fat doesn’t mean you don’t take care of yourself.
Look, I know you guys have good intentions, the thing is, you’re not helping the situation. You don’t have the medical knowledge (and often the right information about a person) to decide whether or not their healthy. You just don’t, and you shouldn’t pretend to.
