why do people think angels are like, beautiful blonde white women with curly hair im pretty sure in the bible angels had to say “be not afraid” because they have like a shitload of eyes and heads and also are on fire or somthing like that
I care about the problems of men. I care that the patriarchy tells men that they have to be stoic beasts incapable of emotion. I care that the patriarchy tells men that they are lust-filled monsters incapable of controlling their own libidos. I care that the patriarchy tells men that they cannot be raped or assaulted because the patriarchy believes women are too weak and inferior to be dangerous.
Feminists did not do this to you, other men did.
In an hour long period, I had a male friend post a Facebook status about how “if you touch his beard without asking, he’s going to touch your butt without asking,” a male customer told one of my female servers that he’d like to lick melted cheese off her body (right before answering a call from his pre-teen son), and overheard a table of men talking about how a certain female coworker they had made them feel “rapey.”
Seriously over cishet male fucks today.
Struggling with trying to figure out how to call out people on the rape culture bullshit they constantly spew… Trying to figure out how to overcome feeling intense anxiety when I see or hear someone implying some shit like it’s totally cool to harass women and it’s a joke, actually.
It’s easier in face-to-face… I usually can’t control my knee-jerk reaction of calling them out. Much harder online when it is someone I know and calling them out becomes a permanent thing everyone can see, comment on, and then I have to deal with my entire day, trying to explain to them or their stranger friends why I am NOT the bad guy by saying consent it necessary and it’s gross to imply that it’s not.
Anxiety because it’s dangerous; because then I have to defend myself to assholes because I have to deal with them at work or school or regularly in public. Fucking frustrating, that is.
Blahdjdkfhfhhghgjdldld. Tumblr, I love you. You made me a better person. Now please help me make everyone else better, too.
