Like 200 women were attacked for asking for a vote from parliament. Two of them died, many were assaulted sexually and beaten by police. Now you might call it terrorism if people fight back. If you are a super conservative misogynistic prick you might.

Regardless of government oppression, the things they did were acts of terror not some sort of self defence. allthough you might think it was if you ignore the obvious double standard.
Sorry, are you equating the institutionalised violent oppression of half the world's people with threatening the people responsible for said oppression? I suppose you believe the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising was a double standard too.
feminism is now synonymous with these fascist cunts (and acts of terror from the suffragettes at the very beginning), the whole thing is poisoned. thus a new term is required to differenciate them from those that actually want a just equality.

Who exactly are you talking about? What "fascists"?
bombing and arson isnt defending yourself, rights or opposing police brutality, its simply violent intimidation.
Actually it's both. Self-defence (especially effective self-defence) is often violent. If people never resisted injustice violently we'd still live in a society subject to the divine right of kings (or worse).
martin luther king is a perfect example of non-violent protest, and look at the great things he achieved.
Cease this nonsense justifying terrorism and threats of violence, you sound like tumblr feminazis
Oi, white boy, quit appropriating and misrepresenting black freedom fighters:
"I am only effective as long as there is a shadow on white America of the black man standing behind me with a Molotov cocktail.” - Martin Luther King, Jr.
MLK recognised very well the effectiveness of violent resistance, especially the way in which it compliments non-violent means of resistance. This notion that MLK was a pacifist is a myth invented by white supremacy. "Look at the great things he achieved," indeed. The successes of the suffragette movement speak for themselves too.
