julia gillard is not 'problematic' she's a white supremacist. women of color exist. racism isn't feminist. women oppressing other women isn't feminist.

okay anon, thank you for letting me know - i knew there were issues surrounding her but i didn’t know how bad they were. for messages like this though i would definitely prefer you to not be anonymous - for me it seems to take some meaning away from the message. i’m glad you pulled me up on it but i’d appreciate it much more if it wasn’t from someone hiding and faceless.

women in positions of power make me so happy - but there aren’t even close to enough of them !!! more women in positions of power pls !!! 

disappointed with election results and more disappointed when i see statuses from extended family celebrating the national win. i guess the statement really rings true that you can pick your friends, but you can’t pick your family. i suppose i should be thankful that most of my relations are caring and decent people - but the disappointment is still there.
