You know what pisses me off? My breasts can be used to blackmail me. A picture of my face and breasts can be used to hurt me. Like this Revenge Porn story that has been circulating (“trending”) lately… women are having their breasts used against them to torture them. Women are afraid they are going to lose their jobs because of THEIR NIPPLES! HOW FUCKED UP IS THAT?
I am not empowered by my breasts, I am endangered by them and that is SO FUCKED UP.

A [Russian] custom of marriage in the 1800s was for a bride’s father to pass a whip to her new husband. Myths continue to contribute to violence against women in Russia. Myths such as, “if he beats you, he loves you,” remain prevalent. “A common joke in which a wife is asking her husband why he is beating her and he replies: If I could think of a reason, I would kill you” (Horne, 1999, p. 58)

And yet mainstream feminists would have us believe that the institution of [hetero] marriage can be “feminist” and the “choice” made by a woman [to marry a man] is immune to any feminist criticism. Idiots…marriage was an institution created by- and for men to exploit and control women and children, hence why women are still expected— and many do— take their husband’s name. Property exchange. Women “don’t own” their surnames in a heteropatriarchal society. Her surname denotes whether her father or husband “owns” her.
It is estimated that the incidence of domestic violence in Russia is four to five times that of domestic violence in the West. An estimated fourteen thousand women a year are killed by their partners in Russia (Horne, 1999).
