For those of you who are tired of hearing about sexism, imagine how much more tired the rest of us are of constantly experiencing it.
I need Feminism because:
- I don’t need “chivalry”.
- I am capable of thinking for myself.
- misogynists don’t invalidate my rights, voice, or existence.
the thing to realize here is that conservatives find the idea of paying workers a livable wage so absurd that they make hyperbolic comparisons like this
because fifteen dollars an hour and a hundred thousand dollars an hour both mean the same thing to them; more than you deserve
^That commentary is very important.
Is misandry mermaid fat? She sounds fat
And here, dear followers, we have a person who has literally never had a single original thought. A person who is so enthusiastically devoted to upholding kyriarchal values, he literally assigns the body type we are socially conditioned to hate to a woman whom he politically disagrees with, regardless of the fact that there is no evidence supporting that assumption. In the future, when you are doubting yourself, remember this person and be proud of yourself for never sinking to this point.
Of course not. Your friend invalidated your experiences by basically flat-out saying you lied, despite you very narrowly escaping a dangerous situation. You have a lot to be proud of, in terms of getting out of that relationship and putting your safety and health first. For your friend to not only deny that, but imply that you were making up the severity of the situation is deeply wounding. Your feelings around all of this are valid and although you don’t say if you and L are still friends or not, I think it’s clear that this person doesn’t deserve your friendship and you don’t deserve her invalidation or mistreatment. Take care, darling.
Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
Black trans women are also victims of this same violence targeting black men and black cis women. This genocide is all inclusive. And transmisogynistic violence is heavily racialized.
