Girls are told to be skinny but not too skinny and to wear makeup but not so much that guys can tell and to dress in revealing clothes but not too revealing or else you’re a slut and a hundred other contradictory standards so I think guys can deal with being made fun of for wearing fedoras

speaking of white boys
Twinkle twinkle little slut
Name a guy you haven’t fucked.
Was he skinny?
Was he tall?
Nevermind you did them all.
Twinkle twinkle little bitch
Close your legs it smells like fish.
Twinkle twinkle little shit
Try to think of this a bit:
Does it affect
You at all
Who has sex or none at all?
No it doesn’t, little shit,
Shut your fucking mouth you twit.

basically, young (cis) boys are taught to be predators. young (cis) girls are taught to be prey.
Yep, and cis girls who speak of their own pleasure as a priority are immediately demonized for the temerity of seeing their bodies as their own. Meanwhile cis boys are supposed to seek pleasure at every opportunity.
if you seriously cannot tell the different between “i hate the group that i am oppressing” and “i hate the group that is oppressing me” you need to sit down and shut up
"i hate trans people" is not the same as "i hate cis people"
"i hate a group of people so i’m going to kill, rape, judge, and oppress them" is not the same as "wow, i hate the group that continues to kill, rape, judge, and oppress me and people like me"
Why are we so ashamed of periods? … Women’s bodies are incredibly sexualized in our media and in our every day experiences. So much so that even mentioning menstruation sends a lot of people into kindergarten levels of EW. And why? Because for a moment, you have broken the spell. And suddenly, you are no longer a magical mannequin unicorn fairy existing purely for the sexual fantasy of other people. Suddenly, you’re a human being! (X)
This is rape culture
That is fucked up
Why are people so scared of murder? Y’all should feel pride that someone risked life in jail just to kill you
Literally that is how stupid these people sound to me rn
People like this need to drop dead.
Even fucking girls tweeted this.
Why is this a thing, this shouldn’t be a fucking thing.
this is the shit my nightmares are made of
what in the fucking hell is this oh my fucking godthis scares me to death
the worst kind of sexism is the kind that’s quiet and pervasive. that sits and lurks and slips out of the mouths of men that you like and trust. when people casually dismiss your humanity and don’t even realize they’ve done exactly that. when it’s so casual and natural that sometimes you don’t even catch it.
What happened when I started a feminist society at school
We wanted to challenge sexist behaviour â but we unleashed a flood of abuse from our male peers
To all the young women who venture to challenge gender inequality and stand up for your feminist rights as a human being….Kia Kaha! Be strong!
Also the whole “dad-with-a-shotgun-meeting-the-boyfriend” trope is actually so so not cute and only serves as an example of the creepy absolute ownership that most men think they have over their daughters.
Wait does anyone thinks that is cute? Wtf.
The most comforting thing: there’s even a blog dedicated to the subject, with a list of violent threats any caring father should make to their daughter’s boyfriend.
I officially hate everything about the world.
ETA: I found this later today, which also makes me puke-rage.
