There was a study done where they got a man to harass a woman in the park
and then they did it the other way around.
Several stopped the man but they let the woman slap and scream
and yank his hair.
They asked a professional who concluded that compared to men,
women aren’t seen as enough to be a threat.
My friend’s principal from three years ago
took his kids and ran
because he kept showing up to work
with bruises put there weekly by his loving wife
and everyone told him to take it like a man.
Last week I listened as a guy laughed off the idea
that a woman could violate him
and I thought of an interview on a news show
where they showed a boy who flinched inwards
every time a girl touched him
because of the exact reason the guy laughed off.
When compared to men,
Women aren’t seen as a threat
so men feel free to take whatever they like.
Women aren’t seen as a threat
so no one takes men seriously
when a woman
breaks them open.

Can I just say that it’s so nice to see something about women abusing men that doesn’t try to say feminism is the root of all evil, and in fact realizes the sexism against women is part of why this shit happens?
Also nice to see it said that this is a thing that feminism is against, because patriarchy eats all its young.
On average, you have a 1 in 18,989 chance of being murdered
A trans person has a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered
The average life span of a cis person is about 75-90
The average life expectancy of a trans person is 23-30 years old
75% of people killed in anti LGBT hate crimes are poc
Think about this the next time you go crying over “cisphobia” and “reverse racism”
Anonymous asked: is it bad that catcalling gives me an ego boost?
i get how you would think that. i do. i was there when i was 14-15 and my self-esteem was so bad that ANY attention was good attention to me but please
please never mistake catcalling/sexual harassment on the street as anything other than just that
it’s not a compliment, it’s not anything positive it is awful and disrespectful and fucking so so so dehumanizing
your body isn’t on display for those fucking shitheads to comment on, to sexualize as they please and you are not an object.
you are a complex, whole, realized, beautiful human being and they have NO fucking right to infringe on your personal place to let you know that they think your ass is nice
it’s not a compliment. it’s insulting, and i understand where you might take enjoyment from that but it’s such a poisonous mindset to be in because you’re not a sexual thing for these scumbag shitstain assholes to comment on
one day someone is going to see you for the radiant and magnificent human being that you are but until that day please never look at what those people do as a compliment
they don’t see you for what you are, they don’t care about your hopes and dreams and all that other shit that makes you you — you’re a pair of tits and an ass to them and fuck that FUCK that shit because you’re not
i’ve dealt with this shit since i was 12 and i have NO tolerance for it and i hope someday that you’re in this mentality too, friend
because the people who catcall are on the lowest end of human evolution and deserve to be punched in the face with a fist reinforced with fucking adamantium
bless this post
nothing fits my aesthetic preference better than mlp, but i can’t get over the writers and artists for the show pandering to mra shithets and being grossly ableist.
Yeah, see the old Derpygate debacle (if you don’t mind breaking open old wounds) amongst others.
Spoiler: this weeks ep helped a bit :3
