“I Don’t Believe In Any Of This Of Course”

16 Feb

‘Cause the thing is, you and the guys you hang out with may not really mean anything by it when you talk about crazy bitches and dumb sluts and heh-heh-I’d-hit-that and you just can’t reason with them and you can’t live with ‘em can’t shoot ‘em and she’s obviously only dressed like that because she wants to get laid and if they can’t stand the heat they should get out of the kitchen and if they can’t play by the rules they don’t belong here and if they can’t take a little teasing they should quit and heh heh they’re only good for fucking and cleaning and they’re not fit to be leaders and they’re too emotional to run a business and they just want to get their hands on our money and if they’d just stop overreacting and telling themselves they’re victims they’d realize they actually have all the power in this society and white men aren’t even allowed to do anything anymore and and and…

I get that you don’t really mean that shit. I get that you’re just talking out your ass.

But please listen, and please trust me on this one: you have probably, at some point in your life, engaged in that kind of talk with a man who really, truly hates women–to the extent of having beaten and/or raped at least one. And you probably didn’t know which one he was.

And that guy? Thought you were on his side.

Think about it.  Don’t support misogyny.  Stop it in it’s tracks.

    I just feel like guys who think like that really hate themselves. They harbor so much hate for themselves and everything else that they blame others for their shortcomings. It’s scary because a lot of guys in general have some kind of similar thought across the board.

    As women, all we can do is prove them wrong and be the best selves we can be. The idiots will be just jealous.

      I don’t know–I think, as women, we’re trained to worry about men’s fragile feelings. That’s why we don’t say “no” when we mean it; it might be speaking out of place.

      But I love this! This is exactly what I wish sexual harassment training felt like. Hip, quick, convincing.
