Hi, there. I’m wearing a shirt that reads “Kill Me”. If you saw me at a party or on the street would you promptly murder me? What about if I had a few drinks? What if I was walking alone at night?I’m guessing that you wouldn’t if you’re a sane individual. The cops wouldn’t overlook your crime because of what I’m wearing because that’s silly. I wasn’t literally asking for you to kill me based on my choice of clothing. Who would take that defense seriously?
My friends wouldn’t blame me for being murdered and my killer would be behind bars almost instantly. So, why is it okay to rape someone because they’re wearing revealing clothes? Why does THEIR choice of clothing excuse THEIR attacker? It doesn’t. You’re silly if you think otherwise. The less guilt on the attacker. The more guilt on victim. Stop. Victim. Blaming.

We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls ‘You can have ambition, but not too much.

‘You should aim to be successful, but not too successful, otherwise you will threaten The Man.’

Because I am a female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Marriage can be… a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same?

We raise girls to see each other as competitors, not for jobs or accomplishments which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men.

We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are…

Feminist, a person who believes in the social, political and economic equality of the sexes…

If Girls Hit On Guys Like Guys Hit On Girls - Video

LOOK AT THIS. LOOK AT THIS, MEN WHO DO THIS, AND FEEL FOOLISH

Omg there’s not nearly enough pepperspray on this planet to dissolve the corneas of all the creeps that make girls feel dirty and skeeved. Cut the shit out and go up your game, ya nasties.
