thirteenstiel replied to your post: Also, different anon. That post was comforting to read. My grandmother was given hysterectomy after her second child was born. She was more or less fear mongered into it, she realizes it was needless but justifies it to cope. Least to say, much of my anger at colonialism as a whole is because I seen what it did to my family, what it did to her to push her into such submission that it was okay that she was treated horribly.
idk if you know this, but there have been instances of romani women being forcibly sterilized by european governments (it’s been reported esp in the czech republic and slovakia) well into the 21st century. sterilization is not dead. :(
Sterilisation…a favourite tactic of racists everywhere.
Oh but didn’t we just have a white (supremacist) feminist explain to us that race doesn’t matter and sexism is equally bad for all women?
Class too, I’m sure. Meaningless.
Thousands of black women in the US underwent sterilisation too, along with ‘mental defectives’. It is shocking how common it became, and yes the fact that it hasn’t ended yet is chilling.
