In Purbalingga, central Java, numerous small workshops represent the first step in a global supply chain. Almost all workers are women, all of them scraping a living by measuring and cutting artificial hair to the requisite size for false eyelashes, and then knitting them onto a thin plastic thread. The job requires intense concentration, often leaving workers with sore eyes and backs. Their financial remuneration for such monotonous work is about $0.04 per pair, sometimes lower. By the time the product reaches Western consumers, the price they pay has often reached $10 a pair – a mark-up of 2,400%.

Damn it! Now I feel bad about buying those cheap lashes…

I also hate sociology teachers coddling white kids “we’re not blaming you no one is attacking you okay” like actually you need to be teaching them that if their immediate thought when they see the consequences of racism and white privilege is “my white feelings” there’s something societally wrong because they’re repeatedly putting their feelings of being sad about being privileged (cry me a river) on par with or above poc’s actual oppression

Men and Women, stages of fear

what stopping girl hate is about:

ending internalised misogyny and the prioritisation of men over each other

what stopping girl hate is not about:

expecting women of colour, disabled women and LGBTQA+ women to excuse racism, ableism, homophobia and transmisogyny simply because it’s coming from other women
