Marriage: did you know that it is a patriarchal construct??
My first reblog impulse was FUCK YES don’t be “that” women’s studies teacher. My second thought was, nobody even fucking gets that marriage is a patriarchal construct. I.e. marriage equality just passed in NY. The night of the vote I was at Nowhere, a gay bar in the city, with my friend who is dating a lesbian politician. I was all “get off your blackberry / who cares about marriage.” And she was all “examine your privilege” and “are you wearing designer birkenstocks?” I mean, white birkenstocks are hardly designer. So I was all Men, Women & Rape CLASSIC FUCKING TEXT CHECK IT OUT. And she was all “you’re a self loathing hipster lesbian.” And I was all let’s get pizza.
it is true that white birkenstocks are hardly designer and also that this level of marriage rage/tevs is why jeanne is going to be the best and most appropriate bridesmaid, besides alex, who asked “do i have to wear a dress? i will.” if only i had known them during my prime marriage-hating years, when the only person who agreed with me was marisa.
