We Clear Our Throats




"We Clear Our Throats" was started to help people who aren't sure how to combat oppressive words and actions. Clearing your throat can be used against microaggressions or overt displays of any -ism, and could help you to start a discussion on issues that matter. We also want to educate people on why these issues are important and give a voice to the people they affect.

‘I would like to see fatphobia and fatphobic remarks being treated in the same way as any other form of bullying and violence…’ While in some places today ‘making fun of fat people makes you the funny person in the room…I’d like to make it such that you become the ostracized person in the room.’

What this is really about is men accusing feminists of sexism and hypocrisy unless they can prove that they spend exactly half of their time, energy, and resources on campaigning on behalf of men. What this is really about is that if feminism only improves the lives of women, it has no value or importance. What this is really about is that feminism only has value if it works on behalf of men and improves the lives of men. What this is really about is anti-feminist men being threatened by women working for women. What they’re really saying is that to talk about women, to focus on women, to point out that something affects women badly; all of this is of no importance or value. It’s classic, really - because men are not always the focus of attention of feminism, these anti-feminists can’t stand it.
