A disturbing trend i've been noticing (for quite sometime) is one of entitlement in online spaces. I could talk forever about this entitlement, as it erupts in literally every single space of the internet, but for the sake of brevity, I'll only be talking about it in feminist spaces. More specifically, I'll be talking about how it shows up on Guerrilla Feminism--the org I created five years ago.

I've been thinking a lot about this, and it makes me angry.
Within the realm of feminist activism (and feminist community), there is this cloud of judgment that hangs over those of us who activate our activism online. Even if we are demonstrating, flyering, etc on street level, our online activism is brushed aside--as if it doesn't even matter. It's not "good" enough.
I have an account on every social media network. It's kind of ridiculous. Specifically, things like Pinterest and Tumblr are mega time wasters, but I enjoy them, and find some good stuff from time to time. However, on these two particular social networks, the tag "Fitspo" comes up often, and I've had enough.
