"Stop objectifying me!!"
OHHOHOOOOO MY GOD BECAUSE WOMEN WEAR CLOTHES PURELY FOR OTHER PEOPLE AND NOT FOR THEMSELVES RIGHT??
Because all men have the brains of peas and if they have breasts in front of them THEY HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO STOP EVERYTHING AND LOOK. AND NOT STOP LOOKING. AND FORGET THAT THE WOMAN EVEN EXISTS.
Thanks for clearing it up. You see, I thought men were competent human beings ^_____^
Why do you wear a shirt that low cut, or a tube top, or shortshorts with “juicy” written across the ass, if you don’t want men to look at it?
Maybe because I like dressing like that. Maybe its hot outside and I want to let everything out.
Or maybe im a LESBIAN and want WOMEN to look at me ^_____^
fucking hell is it really that foreign a concept that maybe women wear things for THEMSELVES
EVEN IF SHE’S WEARING THE SHIRT IN ORDER TO BE LOOKED AT AND FOUND SEXUALLY APPEALING
THAT DOESN’T MEAN SHE WANTS TO HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH A PERSON WHO IS NOT ACKNOWLEDGING HER WORDS AND IS SOLELY ACKNOWLEDGING HER BREASTS
holy shit i don’t know why this is such a difficult concept to grasp
do women ever dress sexy because they want people to look at them? YES OF COURSE THEY DO
but that doesn’t mean they ONLY want to be found sexy
you might not have noticed, but women are multi-faceted people
it’s not too much to ask for someone to admire my cleavage and then have a conversation with me in which they treat me like a human being and look me in the eyes while i speak
That last comment, though.
Also, just because women wear something to be found sexually appealing by others doesn’t mean they are dressed that way to be found sexually appealing BY EVERY SINGLE PERSON THEY COME INTO CONTACT WITH.
Just because they wear something provocative so that attractive man with the nice eyes and smile who chats them up and who is charming and interested in who she is can find her sexually appealing doesn’t mean jackasses who think they’ve got a ticket to the free boob show are OWED her time and body because of it.
like the fuck. Let’s play a really awful logic game here and say you bake a dozen cupcakes and you baked them for the hell of it, you LIKE baking, and damn those cupcakes taste good. So you bring them out with you cos you have some friends that would also LOVE these cupcakes.
ANd on the way there some asshole just comes up to you and EATS a cupcake, just swipes it right off the fuckin plate. YOu’d be like what the fuck bro. “Oh I’m sorry weren’t these cupcakes meant to be EATIN?”
"WELL THEN YOU CAN’T BLAME ME FOR EATING THEM THEN CAN YOU???"
"YES YOU FUCKTRUCK COS IT’S MY CUPCAKE AND MY CHOICE WHO I SHARE MY DAMN CUPCAKES WITH. WHAT IS THIS LIKE FUCKIN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. I DO NOT HAVE TO SHARE THE BREASTS WITH EVERY ONE IN THE CLASS, THAT IS NOT HOW THAT WORKS."
I like that the concept of women simultaneously wanting to be attractive and treated like a person says loads about the way how men instinctively dehumanize women with sexual agency. It’s like, if a woman is sexually attractive - or worse, if a woman is sexually attractive and knows it - they lose the right to be treated as a person, they’re an object, and you can’t blame men for treating them like that. And it’s really creepy yo
because these comments
The main problem I have with Men’s Rights Activists is that their name really doesn’t do them justice. They’re Straight Cis White Men’s Rights Activists. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for the inclusion of trans* men in their spaces.
I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign to end the social stigma around black fatherhood. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for better pay and equal career mobility for men of colour. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists actively campaign for more gay men’s rights. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists advise others in their group on how using f*ggot to emasculate men who aren’t part of their cause is alienating and marginalising other MEN.
I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support victims of male rape unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of rape. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support male victims of domestic abuse unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of domestic abuse. Men’s Rights Activists are hypocrites and frauds.
They’re bitter privileged white men who don’t want to campaign for the rights of men — they want to campaign to keep their privilege unchecked and their ability to discriminate against others. If you want to be a real Men’s Rights Activist — be a fucking (intersectional) Feminist. Peace out.
