I really like being typically girly and etc but whenever I bring up feminism or equal rights im never taken seriously. People laugh at me when I'm really mad about rape culture and whatnot and I get told "you're so cute when you're mad" and i PUBLIC

I just don’t know how to handle this response because whenever I express how demeaning that is I get told it was a compliment and I’m overreacting. Do you have any tips for dealing with this?

Don’t be friends with/hang out around people who belittle your emotions and demean you when you are expressing yourself.  That’s my advice, sorry that it’s so blunt but it’s really the best advice I can give.  Be friends with people who respect you, and “Haha you’re mad, how cute” or “Stop overreacting I was just joking” is NOT respectful.  It is sexist micro-aggression.
