The day a male feminist “ally” does anything other than write a 101 post for his female following (that many women smarter than him have said many times before) or butt his nose into feminist spaces/discussions irl and online is the day I will start taking any of them even marginally seriously. Until then, they can all get the hell away from me with their “ally” bullshit.

One of my main issues with a patriarchal society
Men are socialized to believe that the less shit they put up with, the stronger they are.
Women are socialized to believe that the more shit they put up with, the stronger they are.
Can’t society see how problematic this is? After 7+ years of being bullied I finally realized on an individual level how problematic this construct is. No matter how “strong” a woman is, she is the victim as long as her endurance is her mark of strength. While men get to go about and be as harsh as they want with their surroundings without being judged because that is their strength. Hey, that dude is badass - he doesn’t put up with any shit! But that girl that also doesn’t put up with any shit? She’s a bitch.

Anónimo preguntó: Your making fun of a rape victim, that's all your doing.
i’m criticizing the idea that even in a space that’s supposed to be devoted to women’s stories of being assaulted, abused, and harassed by men (and i don’t give a shit if they say “it’s not just for women~ because everyone fucking knows, this was meant for women) we still have to take time out and talk about male rape victims. is it sad? yes. is male rape a problem? yes (particularly in settings where it is normalized, like prisons). does this discussion belong in a space that’s meant for women to discuss their trauma? no.

My friend told me that when his uncle reported that he was raped by four women, the police officer laughed in his face.

i’m really mad because this really prominent “marxist” blogger once made a big deal about how for his birthday someone bought him the set of this journal as a present and then he devoted a whole post to making fun of cell 16 (the group behind the journal) because they were separatists

lmao of course men after the fact tell women “why didn’t you speak up! we would have stopped that guy from acting like that!” meanwhile until it reaches critical mass every time a woman says “this man is bothering me” “this man is creepy” she’s told she’s overreacting and there’s no way that guy is really a creep
