if you’re a man and your reaction to a woman saying she wants equal rights is “so does that mean I can hit you now” maybe you should reassess your entire pitiful life
A catcall is entirely about reminding you that you are not yours. The purity myth is entirely about reminding you that you are not yours. The fetishization of female purity in a world where catcalls are an acceptable form of communication telegraphs one thing very clearly:
“Women, stop sexualizing yourselves—that’s our job, and you’re taking all the fun out of it.”
The sexualization of women is only appealing if it’s nonconsensual. Otherwise it’s “sluttiness,” and sluttiness is agency and agency is threatening.” —Lindy West, “Female ‘Purity’ is Bullshit” (via shmegeh)
this is okay
but this is not
This makes me so angry. The first time I saw it I chose not to reblog because it is so vile.
People need to know about this though. This is not acceptable.
Haha, once again the sexualization of women is only appealing if it’s nonconsensual. Never mind the fact that breastfeeding isn’t sexual at all.
isn’t it weird as hell that you can think someone is the coolest person on earth and at the exact same time they can hate themselves
