Told my brother about starting a women’s drop-in and applying for a grant. I was telling him about possible discussion topics: sexual assault and rape, female reproductive health, boundaries, mental health and addiction—
And he adds, “Shoes?”
And this is why men have no role in female liberation. Fucking asshole.
'Cause I can't keep sleepin' in your bed
If you keep messin’ with my head
Before I slip under your sheets
Can you give me somethin’ please?
I can’t keep touchin’ you like this
If it’s just temporary bliss
Just temporary bliss
Men want what they want.
So much of our culture caters to giving men what they want. A high school student invites model Kate Upton to attend his prom, and he’s congratulated for his audacity. A male fan at a Beyoncé concert reaches up to the stage to slap her ass because her ass is there, her ass is magnificent, and he wants to feel it. The science fiction fandom community is once again having a heated discussion, across the Internet, about the ongoing problem of sexual harassment at conventions — countless women are telling all manner of stories about how, without their consent, they are groped, ogled, lured into hotel rooms under false pretenses, physically lifted off the ground, and more.
But men want what they want. We should all lighten up.
It’s hard not to feel humorless as a woman and a feminist, to recognize misogyny in so many forms, some great and some small, and know you’re not imagining things. It’s hard to be told to lighten up because if you lighten up any more, you’re going to float the fuck away. The problem is not that one of these things is happening, it’s that they are all happening, concurrently and constantly.
These are just songs. They are just jokes. They are just movies. It’s just a hug. They’re just breasts. Smile, you’re beautiful. Can’t a man pay you a compliment? In truth, this is all a symptom of a much more virulent cultural sickness — one where women exist to satisfy the whims of men, one where a woman’s worth is consistently diminished or entirely ignored.
This is perfect.

I've noticed a lot, well if not some feminist content. I as a male don't really understand exactly how important feminism is in society, so please don't be offended. I don't really think feminism is that important. And I'm just providing an opinion.
"I as a dog don’t really think computers are that important."
"I as a hairbrush don’t really think the metric system is that important."
"I as a remote control don’t really think fish are that important."
"I as a human-hair wig don’t really think house paint is that important."
