straight boys think girls can’t take compliments, and that’s ridiculous cause i’ve seen so many girls compliment each other, i’ve seen conversations & friendships blossom from girls complimenting each other in line, on the street, at school waiting for the bys, pretty much anywhere.

the problem is straight boys think sexual harassment & assault are compliments.

paigeabendroth:

Let’s talk about men who send woman unsolicited pictures of their penis.  I don’t believe that any man does this and thinks to themselves, “wow, she’s going to see this picture of my amazing dick and totally want to have sex with me.”  

Men send woman unsolicited pictures of their penis because they get a wicked little thrill out of violating women.  It’s a form of non-consensual sexual aggression, and it’s fucked up.  

marquis-de-sadist:

Stripping rude people and dumping them into water sources is becoming a signature move.

We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.

No skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry

The whole article sadly hits very close to home.

fauxcyborg:

men who are artists love showing girls, who are so sad, so beautiful - girls crying in showers, girls with delicate bones curled into a fetal position. they want our eyeliner to run but never for our eyes to get puffy. they want our sadness but our anger isn’t pretty.

and they love us being girls - infantile, dependent on men. they love us when we’re broken so long as our pieces aren’t jagged.  

stupidstagram:

a man couldn’t get a woman to touch his dick so he shot people like that’s an actual thing that has occurred in the year 2014.. we can put people on the moon but we can’t teach boys that they aren’t entitled to a woman’s body.

Spend 7 minutes of your life watching this show on gendered marketing

This is brilliant. I specifically buy razors and shaving cream marketed to men because it’s at least 30% cheaper in the US, and yet the quality is way better. 

When I first cut my hair, my mom bought hair gel “for women”. It was incredibly expensive, rare, and didn’t do well with holding up style at all. So I bought a unisex gel later that let’s me do virtually any style I want, and it’s decently priced

But confusingly, misogynists are sometimes men who speak softly and eat vegan and say “a woman’s sexual freedom is an essential component to her liberation. So come here.” It’s a tricky world out there. And while I’d prefer a critical approach to gender from men I elect, read and even bed, in my experience, the so-called feminist men I’ve met deep down have not been less antagonistic or bigoted toward women. What I see over and over again is misogyny in sheep’s clothing, and at this point, I would rather see wolves as wolves.

I hate hate hate it when women in video games make sexual noises when they get hit or die in suggestive positions

like women can’t even die in a way that doesn’t exist to turn men on

how dare you sexualise female pain

seriously though, list of fucking awful trends in the gay male community:

  • "sassy black woman" voice
  • t-slurs everywhere
  • talking down to women/harassing them because “it’s ok i’m gay lol”
  • transphobia towards trans men (ew, vaginas!!!)
  • misogyny towards cis women (more ew, vaginas!!!!)
  • "gay is the new black" (says white gay men)

like can we just address

also

  • trying to disguise racism as a “preference”

All of this

friendlyangryfeminist:

just girly things: pretending to be on the phone when you walk by a large group of men because there’s a chance they’ll harass you <333

Yes I'm afraid of cis people.

ami-angelwings:

I was thinking about “cisphobia” because it’s always this thing that cis people bring out as a GOTCHA REVERSAL thing on trans people. Like, you’re mean to us, you’re CISPHOBIC! or what nots. Piers Morgan just used it today in response to the criticism he’s gotten about the…

hey, guys?
this is a pretty important petition i think we need to pass around again. 
creepshots has both a tumblr and a twitter in which they openly accept demeaning pictures of women, WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT. THESE IMAGES ARE TAKEN OF WOMEN WHO HAVE NO IDEA THEY ARE BEING PHOTOGRAPHED, AND THEN PUT ONLINE FOR THESE FUCKING WASTES OF SPACE TO “ENJOY”.
look at either of them if you want a taste, but be aware that comments such as “She fall from lifting the bar or lifting those tits?” are common on each and every unsolicited, disgustingly indulgent photo.
on top of this, they have allegedly accepted images of women in their own homes, taken by spouses or boyfriends without their partner’s consent.
this is not fucking fair. 
this is fucking disgusting. 
this is rape culture.
and we have no choice but to get together and shut them down.
please sign this fucking petition.

Why You Should Delete SnapChat

godlegos:

seriouslyamerica:

Unsurprising fact of the day: the inventors of SnapChat are misogynists. 

so… not only do they keep your photos on file indefinitely, they also can sell them at any time for any reason they see fit - which means that your friends or family members or even future employers could see you marketing any number of things, against your will. you could be used to market pornographic sites. your image could be fucking ruined, through no fault of your own.

please please PLEASE pass this on to everyone you know, especially if you know that they use snapchat or someone they know does. this information is IMPORTANT. lives could be ruined, here.

I accompanied someone to the police station to report a sexual assault, and this is what happened

protowilson:

sexologist:

A regular client turned good friend was sexually assaulted and asked me if I would go with her to the police station to make the report. Here is what happened.

Things to note:

1. There may be some triggers around sexual assault, victim blaming, and incompetent police officers.

2. My friend gave me permission to write this and actively encouraged me to do so, as a learning opportunity for all of you. However her name has been changed to LC for this post.
