When my sister was in the Marines some little shit told her to make him a sandwich so she went to his boss and they used money from the asshole’s next paycheck to order subs for the entire squadron
"Yes, but that’s still a minority! If more women played video games, there would be more reason to have female protagonists!"
i’m an adult no one can tell me not to live on grilled cheese sandwiches and coffee. no one.
I don’t understand the logic that whoever is calmest in an argument is winning and that somehow anger invalidates your words. I mean I can argue that your great aunt’s name is Jihinksenbob for an hour straight and be perfectly fine. It’s very easy to be calm when the topic doesn’t affect you personally or you just don’t know what the hell you’re talking about.
If you aren’t trying to change my mind then why are you even talking to me about this? Stop lying about your motives both to yourself and to me.
My hatred is reactionary, my anger is reactionary, my grief for my female sisters is reactionary. I am reacting to thousands of years of abuse and subjugation.
My hatred and my anger will not stop until men stop raping, murdering, and abusing us. My hatred will stop when there is no longer a widespread need for crisis centers for women because our boyfriends, fathers, husbands, and even strangers feel like our body is their property to rape or knock around. My anger will stop when little girls aren’t being groomed for motherhood and for dating men before we are old enough to tie our own shoes. My hatred will stop when teenage girls no longer have to fend off the gaze and touch of middle aged men. My anger will stop when women are no longer forced to sell their bodies for food, their sense of selves for a place to sleep. My hatred will stop when men stop trying to force their way into our spaces, when men recognize that they have been enforcing and maintaining a system that knocks women to their knees so that they can feel tall.
My hatred, my anger, it is reactionary. Male hatred, that is unfounded.
Spend your time telling them to not “fight fire with fire” or telling them that “hate breeds hate”.
I am fighting fire with the only thing available to me, go tell men to stop fucking lighting the fires, then we can talk.
