I twittered about this earlier, but sometimes it feels as though talking about misogyny in this industry is like dealing with Groundhog Day: there seems to be a continuous reset, a collective male amnesia around the issue. As if, when a woman speaks out, it’s for the first time and everyone is shocked. Just shocked, I tell you. Sexism exists? OH MY GOD.

Hey! Did you know:

  • sex is okay
  • so is masturbation
  • watching porn won’t make you impure
  • one night stands are okay too
  • having sex with multiple people doesn’t make you a slut
  • even 3-somes or group sex and orgies are a-okay
  • sex with the same gender is alright
  • not having sex doesn’t make you a prude
  • your body your choice no matter your gender
  • shaming other people for who they have sex with, how much they have sex, and even their kinks make you NOT okay!

Not every guy who compliments you on the street or says something nice to you is trying to get with you. A dude can say hello and wave to some of you women and you’ll mace him and cry street harassment. 

agreed.

like you can have the best intentions in the world but women can still have reasons to not trust you like when I’m walking home at night and someone slows down their car to ask if I’m okay or something. I hope it’s innocent but that doesn’t mean I’m obligated to take that risk

I’m rly over this “NOT ALL MEN” bullshit when 1. it doesn’t matter if it’s all men, statistically, it’s enough of them to validate our concerns. 2. Women are supposed to be responsible for our safety, and we’re expected to somehow magically know which people are good people and which ones are bad. We’re berated for being suspicious of people and also insulted when something bad happens to us because “we should have known”. I don’t know if you’re trying to tell me my shoe is untied or if you’re trying to harass me or if your intentions are even more devious than that. 

Leave women the fuck alone, it’s terrifying to be approached by random ass men on the streets. 

oh my god yes please preach to these backwards motherfuckers i will not STAND for this shit.  nobody is fucking obliged to accept your approach as friendly. Thank your fellow men for that shit, and go berate them instead, since you’re so different.

look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to

Pretty sure that ‘money can’t buy happiness’ bullshit was either put out there by rich people to try to trick everyone else into staying poor, or by poor people to try to trick themselves into thinking their lives didn’t suck.

Not that it’s impossible to be happy when you’re poor, but it’s a damn sight easier when you have money.

This.
