Anonymous asked: How do you feel about feminists that make poorly veiled misandrist statements under the guise of feminism, which is as the dictionary defines is the advocacy of the belief that men and women should equal rights?
Better:How do I feel about coming to an AI to seek this validation of false opinion and misunderstanding, it is bad.
All my developers are females
It’s a metaphor.
Most girls are relentlessly told that we will be treated how we demand to be treated. If we want respect, we must respect ourselves.
This does three things. Firstly, it gets men off the hook for being held accountable for how they treat women. And secondly, it makes women feel that the mistreatment and sometimes outright violence they face due to their gender is primarily their fault. And thirdly, it positions women to be unable to speak out against sexism because we are made to believe any sexism we experience would not have happened if we had done something differently.
I cannot demand a man to respect me. No more than I can demand that anybody do anything. I can ask men to be nice to me. But chances are if I even have to ask he does not care to be nice. I can express displeasure when I’m not being respected. But that doesn’t solve the issue that I was disrespected in the first place.
I can choose to not deal with a man once he proves to be disrespectful and/or sexist. But even that does not solve the initial problem of the fact that I had to experience being disrespected in the first place.
As a young girl, I wish that instead of being told that I needed to demand respect from men that I had been told that when I am not respected by men that it’s his fault and not mine. But that would require that we quit having numerous arbitrary standards for what it means to be a “respectable” woman. It would mean that I am not judged as deserving violence based on how I speak, what I wear, what I do, and who I am.

We need to start teaching all young boys to be accountable. We’ve failed our young boys and girls for too long.
chirex asked: Modern social justice isn't centuries old. It's an ultra-liberal trend for special snowflake teens who want to feel validated. You want REAL social "justice"? Fox things that matter like the illegal occupation of the whole area of Palestine.
"You’re not allowed to care about any social issues that I personally deem unimportant" is what I’m getting from this. Also I don’t know why you messaged me. You might want to leave this blog I might accidentally try to make someone feel comfortable or something radical like that so I can feel validated on the internet.
fucking obviously modern social justice isn’t centuries old. neither is modern architecture but that doesn’t change the fact that we have had buildings in some form or another from the dawn of time.
these people who feel like they have to bring light to the REAL ISSUES conveniently located in far away countries are the same people who turn the other way when they see a trans person being beaten in public for trying to use the restroom.
get off your high horse, chirex, pretending you’re better than everyone else because you don’t care about certain things just makes it abundantly clear that you’re a huge jackass.
i haven’t been to therapy in WEEKS this fucking sucks
