TW for rape, assault, harassment, gender and sexuality bashing and harassment, power dynamics
A man (ModPrimate on Youtube) speaks out about Steubenville Football rape and rape culture. If you are able to watch it, it is a great video.
This guy has a good head on his shoulders.
It’s one of the most misogynist things out there.
dictating how a woman chooses to express herself sexually is misogynistic
it’s also misogynistic to assume that all women undertake a sub position
it’s also heterosexist to assume that all bdsm is heterosexual
And so does citizenship, if that’s true. So any uterus-bearer that hops the border and gets knocked up on American soil automatically has an American citizen in their body. These people might even have one in their bodies even before that, if they go to Arizona!

This is something that needs more sharing, most definitely.
C’mon learn context, humor, and what real misogyny is. Just because you dont find something offensive doesnt mean its time for you to raise the war flag and complain about inequality. That is just as bad as trying to ban books, movies, music, etc just because it doesnt fit to ur small opinion of what u find acceptable. just like some kind of religious or political zealot.
plus on top of it Ur just victimization yourself and Reenforcing these “stereotypes” against you. If someone is actually trying to belittle you because of ur gender. brush it off ur shoulder, because u getting all huffy about it is exactly what they want, think dont act…
OH! And ladies really look at yourself and ur behavior.
Bet you’ll take that out of context too.
Telling people who are victimized by privileged persons — whether through action, media, off-color jokes, imagery — to simply “brush it off” is a weak attempt to disregard their feelings of victimization and marginalization.
Good job telling victims of misogyny that it’s up to them to react in an acceptable manner rather than telling misogynists that their behavior is what needs to change.
