Please reblog. Protect our indigenous sisters.




All the love in the world your way. ♥ You are sunshine.



green-weather replied to your post: Hello new followers. This will turn ba…

is “white feminism” an actual, uh…label/group people embrace? it makes no sense

p muuuuuch. like none of them are gonna admit to being a “white feminist”. They’re gonna put labels like “radical” in front of to seem like they are any different from other white feminists (libfems, sex+fems), but that’s what it is, and that’s what lots of POC (and especially Indigenous folks) have been saying for a long time. but ofc they aren’t gonna fucking listen.




Hello new followers. This will turn back to a regular blog about my awesome life soon.

None of the original people have come forward to apologize for speaking over me and other ndns. No one has apologized for blatantly and hypocritically using us as pawns to further their shit colonial gender understandings. No one has apologized for spreading misinformation, and acting like they had any fucking idea what they were talking about. People still haven’t apologized for pulling “so and so is a poc!!”, like that has any fucking value when we are talking about NDN-specific issues and how you treat them. No one has apologized for acting like living in Canada means you know shit about NDN women’s struggles. Someone seriously compared our genocide to Francophone struggles. And, you know, talking about us in past tense.

White feminism is shit, no matter what guise it tries to take.

They don’t give a shit about ndn women outside of the statistics we can offer them.

And no one is surprised.

Indigenous radfem sound like an oxymoron.

My answer:

my questions about how white passing and disconnected from their Indigenous communities isn’t solely to animate how easy it is to play pretend on the interent. like I really wanna know what the fuck kind of elders and community members you been talking to if you think this shit white feminism has anything to offer NDN people except to further white women’s narrative, where we remain the statistics they want, and nothing more.

still waiting for an ex-friend-turned-bigname-tumblr-radfem to turn up again. she deleted her old acount , but i’m sure she’s still here

she was quick to talk about being ndn but was 100% white passing and disconnected (oh but she got mistaken for mexican once ok)

I talked about her before, but her greatest hits: she worshiped richard dawkins, let one of her furry-fandom brony middle-aged white, atheist male friends call me “stupid” for talking about Indigenous cosmologies. Was in an ex-milionare family and complained about how hard it was to go from upper-class to middle-class and said “i almost wish i wasn’t rich before so i didn’t have to struggle with this!!!”.

yup, ~Indigenous radfems~

i hope that’s her. i will die of LMAO.

maybe some of ya’ll radfems know her! i think her name had something to do with spiders. You can tell me how she’s doing. does she have a summer tan? did she get mistaken for mexican once this summer yet? is she used to being middle-class yet? is she still acting like she has any fucking knowledge about being Indigenous, when all of her “knowledge” is just repeating what I tried to explain to her when she was a furry disconnected cherokee atheist on livejournal and i was her one connected ndn friend.

take all “Indigenous radfems” with a bucket of salt.

still waiting for their certified NDN radfem to come out of the woodworks. I worry about ya, you know, and how many of my experiences and stories you warped and made your own.

it’s so funny when genderists come at me with “but other cultures have non-binary gender systems tooooo!”

you’re proving my point - gender is socially constructed. it exists only within the context of the culture that creates it. there is no such thing as an inherent gender. 

the modern genderist movement is 100% a cult. aggressive recruiting, meaningless jargon, isolation of members, violence towards non-members, the leaders are seen as infallible and members will do anything to justify the actions of the leaders, love-bombing of new members, et cetera, et cetera.

Furthermore, if white people would stop using us indigenous or non-Western/non-White folk as talking points when it’s convenient for your agenda that would be real super.

Plus the Hebrew “six-genders” were really just categorizations for intersex conditions - not genders at all.

AND all those cultures that had “third genders” all have one thing in common:

They were EXTREMELY sex-role segregated. That is to say, gender roles were sexually based and frequently exclusive. Women did “This”, men did “That”, and if you were a female that did “That”, then you weren’t a Woman (but you also weren’t male), so you were Officially In-Between.

If you look at the cultures that originated the Third Genders, they are invariably sex-segregated.

Ancient Hebrew? Yep.
India? Check.
First Nations? Also.

Curiously, in more egalitarian First Nations cultures, like the Iroquois or the Six Nations, Third Genders are rarely documented, whereas in cultures like the Zuni, Oglala Lakota, etc, where the sex roles are much more strictly enforced, their prevalence is higher.

Not coincidentally, “third gender” or trans individuals are also common in Western culture, which again, corroborates the idea of the “third gender” arising in situations where sex roles are more strictly enforced.

Look at these white people so obviously educated on our cultures. ayup.

fuck I hate white feminists. Yes, ALL OF YOU. lib fems/rad fems, you are all just so fucking far up your lily-white assholes.

if you are white: SHUT THE FUCK UP. DO NOT EVER  EVER SPEAK ABOUT OUR NATIONS LIKE YOU KNOW SHIT. EVER.

you criticize the main asker for using Indig tradition as convenient pawns (and yes, this is a fucking problem), yet no one criticizes the fucking mess this is.

like way to go: speaking over us and diminishing the diversity in our nations so they fit into your hideous radfem box. i can’t even put into words all that is wrong here. it is phenomenal. you are all fucking vile. oh let me guess, you took an indigenous studies 100 class or you have an ndn friend.

~~~curiously~~~  ~~~not coincidentally~~~ ~~~whereas~~~

(also: what do you wanna bet so called Indigenous person is disconnected and white passing. hmmmmm.)

these are people who will wax poetic about missing and murdered Indigenous women and hold us up as literal “exhibits” for sexualized violence against women, yet will speak over us any fucking chance they get.

oh look, they reblogged a “Am I Next” post!!!!

wow, what an ally! They care so much about us ndn women!

I really, truly hate all of you.

for what it’s worth, I’m pretty sure appropriately-inappropriate, the only person who spoke about indigenous cultures, is not white. in fact, I’m pretty sure I’ve seen her post about being latina?

reblogging because wtf person a-i is Latina and lives in Canada where the Am I Next shit actually is going on.

so the fact that she is spewing that simplistic, disgusting shit when she lives in Canada makes it even fucking worse. yeah, and you don’t have to fucking tell me the “am I next” shit is going on.

guess where I live? guess which Canadian provinces has one of the highest rates of violence against FN women?  guess which province has prisons full of 80% FN people? Guess who lives under poverty the most in this province? guess who I fucking am and where I live. Guess!

I am one of those fucking women you love so much, precious, precious Indigenous women, but will speak over any fucking chance you get.

if you are not First Nations, and especially if you are white, do NOT FUCKING TALK ABOUT OUR NATIONS LIKE YOU KNOW SHIT. and stop acting like you actually care about us and want to give us a voice, because we all know you only want to do that when it’s convenient for you. otherwise, you’re perfectly happy to speak for us.

hello manitoban!!! I’m just guessing because Red River métis. I was born in fucking St Boniface to a Francophone family that has been there since the red river valley was settled. If you want to be technical our history has been intertwined, with my folk as your oppressors (although the English have both been our enemies) I’m even related to some of the Seurs Grises. This history has been white washed as fuck and I wasn’t even aware that Louis Riel was Métis until much later. But that is neither here nor there. I’m well aware of the poverty especially in Winnipeg. I’ve seen it. This isn’t someone just sitting behind a computer screen who has always lived in a cushy burb. I lived in the middle of fucking Winnipeg. I saw what the government has done to your people. I was taught this bullshit whitewashed history of this province and it sickens me. And guess what? My people were almost as fucked as your’s were back in the day. French canadians were treated almost on the sub human level. However this is neither here nor there.

A-i was only amplifying the voices of NDN women. She wasn’t adding her own commentary. And in fact, as Latina she could be easily mistaken (by an idiot) as NDN and a victim. Also, how else is there supposed to be awareness without people in positions of power not necessarily speaking for but acting as a powerful echo to women in disadvantaged groups. She wasn’t asking for a fucking cookie she cares about this.
Again not the point of your original reblog.

your original point is still baseless. She was not pigeon holing cultures into square little boxes she was only citing examples. Additionally it is just as harmful to promote whatever poc culture as “better” and more enlightened than western culture. The enlightened foreigner is a shitty harmful trope for a reason.

This response doesn’t sit right with me. While I don’t think it’s my place to interject here, as a white American with barely any idea what any of you are talking about, this response seems like it’s comparing oppression, which is always inappropriate.

It definitely is, tbh.  

White people, no matter how you angle it, will never be as “fucked” as PoCs in history.  Never.  Even the poorest of white folk will never have gone through literal mass extermination and it’s entirely inappropriate for mulledwine for be comparing what their (oppressive, which they even admits) ancestors did to cosmicqt’s (which I can relate to, considering what white people also did to my people and other indigenous peoples all around the world).  That’s like people saying, “well, people have been mean to white people, too, you know” when a black person talks about slavery, but there is a difference in that white people were not literally and continuously exterminated and dehumanized time and time again for the past five hundred + years until now.  

That being said, why hasn’t cosmicqt also called out starlingsongs for appropriating races & cultures the way they did?  From what I saw on that person’s blog, it’s full of Asian-fetishization (gross), if that’s already not an indication of a racist.

I don’t even know who fucking starlingsongs is. i have never even visited their blog before. back the fuck off.

so you didn’t even read the actual original post you commented on then, nor did you read my response, did you.

you just jumped on the ‘oh look someone mentioned me let me jump down their throat’ 

lmao. why didn’t this ndn know every single person involved in this post!!??!

like good job. you know that reverse racism doesn’t exist.

you are fucking gross, and completely trying to derail everything i said.

how did I ‘completely’ derail anything you said?  I was asking why your criticisms only seemed to apply to one side of the argument and not both, because yeah, it’s wrong for people to talk over any kind of PoC like that.  

like if you honestly fail to see how you are derailing, I don’t know what to tell you. if you think this has anything to do with the original asker, jfc, you are dense. this is 100% about the way you fucking people will use us NDN people when it’s convenient, and speak over us when it’s not

I said that using us as pawns, no matter what side you are on is fucking vile, literally in the first reply. i have spent most of call-outs jumping on white queer people who use us like this. the kicker? we get an non-ndn radfem explaining ndn culture like she has any kind of fucking idea what she is talking about.

if you are non-ndn, keep your fucking mouth shut.

it’s easy. real fucking easy.

You know what?  You’re right.  I should’ve realized sooner that you were criticizing both sides of the argument.  I’m really sorry for jumping to a conclusion like that.  From what I was seeing on my dash, it was a very-one-sided criticism, but reading over your original first reply, I know now that it wasn’t.  

so now that i have your official seal of approval, are you gonna collect the hoards of people speaking over us NDN women and reblogging that shit without a second thought? is anyone gonna address the fact that you may be a PoC, but that means shit-all for having knowledge about NDN traditions or our experiences, nor does it give you the right to speak on our behalf? is anyone gonna address the way we were literally used us as a pawn, after someone was like “pls don’t use indig ppl as a pawn”.

is anyone actually going to apologize for speaking over us or…

prioritizing woc alright.

i’ll wait.



If this wasn’t already clear, I care about NDN men and MoC way more than I will ever care about white women.

the modern genderist movement is 100% a cult. aggressive recruiting, meaningless jargon, isolation of members, violence towards non-members, the leaders are seen as infallible and members will do anything to justify the actions of the leaders, love-bombing of new members, et cetera, et cetera.

Furthermore, if white people would stop using us indigenous or non-Western/non-White folk as talking points when it’s convenient for your agenda that would be real super.

Plus the Hebrew “six-genders” were really just categorizations for intersex conditions - not genders at all.

AND all those cultures that had “third genders” all have one thing in common:

They were EXTREMELY sex-role segregated. That is to say, gender roles were sexually based and frequently exclusive. Women did “This”, men did “That”, and if you were a female that did “That”, then you weren’t a Woman (but you also weren’t male), so you were Officially In-Between.

If you look at the cultures that originated the Third Genders, they are invariably sex-segregated.

Ancient Hebrew? Yep.
India? Check.
First Nations? Also.

Curiously, in more egalitarian First Nations cultures, like the Iroquois or the Six Nations, Third Genders are rarely documented, whereas in cultures like the Zuni, Oglala Lakota, etc, where the sex roles are much more strictly enforced, their prevalence is higher.

Not coincidentally, “third gender” or trans individuals are also common in Western culture, which again, corroborates the idea of the “third gender” arising in situations where sex roles are more strictly enforced.

Look at these white people so obviously educated on our cultures. ayup.

fuck I hate white feminists. Yes, ALL OF YOU. lib fems/rad fems, you are all just so fucking far up your lily-white assholes.

if you are white: SHUT THE FUCK UP. DO NOT EVER  EVER SPEAK ABOUT OUR NATIONS LIKE YOU KNOW SHIT. EVER.

you criticize the main asker for using Indig tradition as convenient pawns (and yes, this is a fucking problem), yet no one criticizes the fucking mess this is.

like way to go: speaking over us and diminishing the diversity in our nations so they fit into your hideous radfem box. i can’t even put into words all that is wrong here. it is phenomenal. you are all fucking vile. oh let me guess, you took an indigenous studies 100 class or you have an ndn friend.

~~~curiously~~~  ~~~not coincidentally~~~ ~~~whereas~~~

(also: what do you wanna bet so called Indigenous person is disconnected and white passing. hmmmmm.)

these are people who will wax poetic about missing and murdered Indigenous women and hold us up as literal “exhibits” for sexualized violence against women, yet will speak over us any fucking chance they get.

oh look, they reblogged a “Am I Next” post!!!!

wow, what an ally! They care so much about us ndn women!

I really, truly hate all of you.

for what it’s worth, I’m pretty sure appropriately-inappropriate, the only person who spoke about indigenous cultures, is not white. in fact, I’m pretty sure I’ve seen her post about being latina?

reblogging because wtf person a-i is Latina and lives in Canada where the Am I Next shit actually is going on.

so the fact that she is spewing that simplistic, disgusting shit when she lives in Canada makes it even fucking worse. yeah, and you don’t have to fucking tell me the “am I next” shit is going on.

guess where I live? guess which Canadian provinces has one of the highest rates of violence against FN women?  guess which province has prisons full of 80% FN people? Guess who lives under poverty the most in this province? guess who I fucking am and where I live. Guess!

I am one of those fucking women you love so much, precious, precious Indigenous women, but will speak over any fucking chance you get.

if you are not First Nations, and especially if you are white, do NOT FUCKING TALK ABOUT OUR NATIONS LIKE YOU KNOW SHIT. and stop acting like you actually care about us and want to give us a voice, because we all know you only want to do that when it’s convenient for you. otherwise, you’re perfectly happy to speak for us.

hello manitoban!!! I’m just guessing because Red River métis. I was born in fucking St Boniface to a Francophone family that has been there since the red river valley was settled. If you want to be technical our history has been intertwined, with my folk as your oppressors (although the English have both been our enemies) I’m even related to some of the Seurs Grises. This history has been white washed as fuck and I wasn’t even aware that Louis Riel was Métis until much later. But that is neither here nor there. I’m well aware of the poverty especially in Winnipeg. I’ve seen it. This isn’t someone just sitting behind a computer screen who has always lived in a cushy burb. I lived in the middle of fucking Winnipeg. I saw what the government has done to your people. I was taught this bullshit whitewashed history of this province and it sickens me. And guess what? My people were almost as fucked as your’s were back in the day. French canadians were treated almost on the sub human level. However this is neither here nor there.

A-i was only amplifying the voices of NDN women. She wasn’t adding her own commentary. And in fact, as Latina she could be easily mistaken (by an idiot) as NDN and a victim. Also, how else is there supposed to be awareness without people in positions of power not necessarily speaking for but acting as a powerful echo to women in disadvantaged groups. She wasn’t asking for a fucking cookie she cares about this.
Again not the point of your original reblog.

your original point is still baseless. She was not pigeon holing cultures into square little boxes she was only citing examples. Additionally it is just as harmful to promote whatever poc culture as “better” and more enlightened than western culture. The enlightened foreigner is a shitty harmful trope for a reason.

This response doesn’t sit right with me. While I don’t think it’s my place to interject here, as a white American with barely any idea what any of you are talking about, this response seems like it’s comparing oppression, which is always inappropriate.

It definitely is, tbh.  

White people, no matter how you angle it, will never be as “fucked” as PoCs in history.  Never.  Even the poorest of white folk will never have gone through literal mass extermination and it’s entirely inappropriate for mulledwine for be comparing what their (oppressive, which they even admits) ancestors did to cosmicqt’s (which I can relate to, considering what white people also did to my people and other indigenous peoples all around the world).  That’s like people saying, “well, people have been mean to white people, too, you know” when a black person talks about slavery, but there is a difference in that white people were not literally and continuously exterminated and dehumanized time and time again for the past five hundred + years until now.  

That being said, why hasn’t cosmicqt also called out starlingsongs for appropriating races & cultures the way they did?  From what I saw on that person’s blog, it’s full of Asian-fetishization (gross), if that’s already not an indication of a racist.

I don’t even know who fucking starlingsongs is. i have never even visited their blog before. back the fuck off. ~why isn’t this ndn woman familiar with ever single tumblr on this post~

still waiting for people to address talking for and over NDN women.



radfem/libfem, it doesn’t matter what you fucking call it - it’s white feminism, and this has made it all the more clear that white feminists only care about using us  as “evidence”, be it our statistics of sexual violence or our gender systems.

they’re nowhere to be seen when NDN women actually call our their shit.

they’re gonna call forth their two brown friends to try and make them look less racist, and practice no self-reflexivity, and hold no one accountable for their white supremacist shit.

white feminism needs to die






starlingsongs Asked:
Are the indigenous cultures with nonbinary concepts of gender cults too? Was the early Hebrew six-gender system a cult? How deeply are you willing to entrench yourself in that idea?

that’s worth absolutely fucking nothing

cosmicqt is the bomb y’all

cosmicqt is the only one here with any goddamn sense.

a-ai is a known transmisogynist who repeatedly has harassed and spread lies about trans womyn, just like all the white ~gender critical~ girls on this site do. she’s indistinguishable from them so who gives a shit? OP: Stop using WoC as tokens for your shit ideology. BTW your boyfriend is ugly.

As someone who is *both* indigenous AND jewish, I don’t fucking appreciate this thread and who it actively erases people like me EVEN EXISTING. Don’t erase people like me being accepted, loved, wanted and an inherent part of the community. 

"the Hebrew six genders were really just categorizations of intersex conditions" wow you mean Jews traditionally construed sex differently than the cisheteropatriarchal medical establishment does today? nice to see TWERFs finally admitting that "biological sex" is every bit as constructed as gender is.

Look at these idiots claiming that the existence of intersex conditions disproves sexual dimorphism.

When you guys find a Z chromosome, come talk to me. Until then, shut the hell up and get off my post.

so seeing as how this is your post, and you’re not getting off it, actually use your time and do something productive:

- please address how your radfems are using indigenous people as pawns, even after that (supposed) indigenous person was like “pls don’t use us as pawns”

- address the people blatantly speaking over numerous NDN women.

- address the person who is non ndn is trying to act like she has any fucking knowledge, when she so obviously fucking doesn’t.

-please address the white person who compared ndn genocide to francophone oppression

you are all so fucking vile. white feminists can’t even hold themselves accountable for basic ass racism-101 shit.
