anti-feminist: "Teach men not to rape"? Men already know not to rape, that's ridiculous.
feminist: This isn't so much about targeting adult men as it is about changing social habits and constructs that teach boys from an early age not to respect the agency of the girls around them; ie, "he bullies you because he likes you." Besides, clearly men don't all know or it wouldn't be happening.
anti-feminist: MEN ALREADY KNOW NOT TO RAPE
feminist: Okay, but as I said, there's more to this than just--
anti-feminist: MEN ALREADY KNOW
"Whatever women do they must do it twice as well as men to be thought half as good. Luckily, this is not difficult."
-Charlotte Whitton (via flight-by-night)
"Too many women in too many countries speak the same language — of silence."
-Hillary Clinton (via ofthaveimused)
"I would often find myself almost daily, I was 21, at midnight running down down a dark street on my own with 10 big men chasing me. The fact that they had cameras in their hands meant that that was legal. But if you take away the cameras, what have you got? You’ve got a pack of men chasing a woman, and obviously that’s a very intimidating situation to be in."
- Sienna Miller, with her thoughts on paparazzi and the press just after “News of the World” admitted hacking her phone. (via henry-tilney-rocks)
Menstrual Minstrel:*song ends*
Me: Isn't it glorious?
Friend: But... why is he singing about periods?
Me: Hm... I never really thought about that. I just kinda accepted it.
Friend: You should start questioning things more often.
I just listened to Menstrual Minstrel again. How does a boy know so much? This worries me.
