Q:Male privilege is when, in your physics class there are only 8 girls left out of 30 kids. Then, when you're watching Star Trek in class, and a women takes off all her clothes and you point it out that it was unnecessary, the entire class jeers at you. My two best friends told me that it was because the movie was catering to its intended demographic. I pulled up evidence that nearly 50% of gamers are women. No matter how much evidence I give, they won't listen.
Q:Hi, i was wondering if you could tag things like (trigger) tw instead of tw (trigger) because on the blacklist thing it looks at the first word so if you tag something like tw: rape, someone who blacklisted rape might still see it on his/her dash
My tag blocking system literally just seeks out the word in posts so I make sure to stick it in there. But I can definitely change it around.
Unfortunately because of the number of posts it will be retroactive, but I will definitely start doing that. If I forget, please remind me.
Q:Male privilege is when you are walking on a side walk and a grown man drives their car past you and screams "slut!" and then when you talk to your male friend about it, instead of being upset, asks what you were wearing, and says it could happen to a guy too. And then proceeds to bring up made up scenarios of when something like that could happen to a man.
You can make up all sorts of scenarios and that doesn’t mean they’re true. I could probably pull aside any of my friends who identify as women and ask them to tell me about a time they were honked at or cat called and probably get a different story from each one. And more than one.
"It could happen" doesn’t mean shit.
Q:My bf fingered me last night, I said "no" and "stop" and kept trying to close my legs but he wouldn't let me until I broke out in tears. Is that rape?
Digital rape is still rape. I’m so sorry anon.
Q:holy shit are you serious? men aren't allowed to LOOK at you? are men supposed to just like, keep their eyes down, keep their ears shut, and fucking BOW when you walk by?
Q:Male Privilege is getting to go to a card shop to play Magic: the Gathering without worrying about people asking "where's your boyfriend?" Without worrying about guys hitting on you. Without worrying about whether or not people will look at you strangely or give you trouble for being the only girl present. Male privilege means you just get to play a card game in peace, without any extra baggage.
Q:What's your opinion on men asking women for nude photos via cell phone?
If two consenting adults want to trade nude photos, that’s none of my business.
If a man is trying to coerce nude photos out of an unwilling participant, then I put on my stomping shoes.
Q:My friend and I were talking about how I haven't had my first kiss (I'm 16 and totally fine with it) and some guy across the room called out, "well maybe if you acted like a damn girl like you're supposed to, someone'd actually want to!"
Q:I get breast related comments all the time. I have excessively large breasts for my body (30J) and if I show even the slightest bit of cleavage (like 5% of my overall breasts), I'm suddenly being a slut and asking to have men stare at me/harass me. Even my own family has said so. My sister has very tiny breasts and shows off the entire tops of them all the time, but since they're small that makes it even work appropriate. I just love being tormented for things I can't control.
(Please let me know if you would like these posts to be staggered so I’m not spamming your dashboard.)
Q:One of my (male) friends was talking to me today. During my part of the conversation, I kept getting the feeling he wasn't listening. Then, I caught him staring at my chest. I politely asked him to stop and he said, "if you don't want guys to stare at your boobs, you shouldn't have had such big ones!" Apparently, I am now being blamed for naturally large breasts!
I will never wrap my head around how men seem to be unable to take responsibility for violating someone’s boundaries.
