I do not hate men.
like jfc right now my blog is mostly pictures and gifs of men
I’m being rude? Okay. You know what’s actually rude? The fact that when I leave my home in a dress because it’s 80 DEGREES OUTSIDE AND I WANT TO LOOK CUTE, I get catcalled on the way to my car. I feel fear at night when I walk from my car to my front door, because if a dude decided he was entitled to my body, there would not be a whole lot I could do to stop him.
It’s rude that reading comic books means that the women all pose ridiculously and do not actually dress like they’re ready for combat. Once a dude protested that “women’s bones are more flexible.” They are bones and they are not more flexible because I am a girl.
“I can’t even relate to where you’re coming from.”
No, you can’t.
Because you can watch a movie and not wonder whether or not there will be more than one female character at a time, whether or not they will have a conversation, and whether or not they will talk about something besides a man.
You do not have to be afraid when you walk alone at night unless you live in an unsafe neighborhood, in which case I would still be at a higher risk than you.
You do not get attacked by women when you tell them you only like them as a friend.
You do not get called a slut for exercising your right to say yes and a bitch for exercising your right to say no.
I was not talking about the gif on that post, I was talking about the comment that said “There are guys like this you’re just too busy putting them in the friendzone to see that.”
You cannot relate to where I’m coming from because no one will ever accuse you of doing some unforgivable fucking crime because you didn’t want them back.
I like men. My best friend is a dude. I have a lot of guy friends. I enjoy male characters on tv and in movies, I love my father and my male relatives. My problem is not with men.
My problem is with men like YOU. Men like you who think that, because my opinion reflects negatively on them, I am offensive and rude. Men like you who think that how I talk about the male view and the patriarchy in modern society is an offense to your existence. Men like you who cannot accept another point of view if they can’t relate toit. Men like you who say shit like “there are some guys out there that only want women for sex, that is why theres prostitutes.” Men like you who see a woman being aggressive on the internet as the equivalent of a very long ongoing world history of oppression and violence.
Men like you, who come to accuse me of being a man-hating feminist because you do not like being spoken to the way that some men speak to me.
