Here's how patriarchy works: a women's organization (Mothership) invites me to talk (pro bono) at one of their festivals about my work against censorship of female bodies on Facebook using the male nipple pasty. Three years later (yesterday), they post, without credit or attribution, a white male artist's application of my project (which was done without my involvement), resulting in 10s of thousands of views, and countless comments telling them to credit the white male artist. Then it gets picked and shared by another account called #girlgaze which also posts without credit, and results in people lauding said white male artist. LADIES, LETS STOP BEING THE HANDMAIDENS OF PATRIARCHY, SHALL WE?? What can YOU do to resist the patriarchy today? (Mothership removed the post. @girlgaze has yet to respond) #patriarchy#blindedbythewhiteness#feminism#givecreditwherecreditisdue#thestruggleisreal Hyperqllergic article about this is linked in my bio.
Had a dreamy day, with dreamy friends 🌿✨ Now for a night in listening to the beautiful storm 🌧⚡️
