So today I was hanging out with one of my guy friends / guy who wants to be with me and he was like
“Your a feminist they’re sexist against men that’s literally the definition of feminism.”
And when I tried to explain to him about equal rights… Well… He just went on another tangent saying it should be called “equalism.”
Not “feminism”
Like… :S uhhmm… Last time I checked that’s what we were fighting for? To not get raped, harassed on the street ect ect list can go on and on….
This was the same guy that made the remark about me being street harassed…
“Better get used to it your fucking stunning”
Or… Guys can not be creeps and yell rude things at me, yeah that works too.

"

She cries inside when she hears a man
yell, “I just RAPED you!” when he wins
a video game. No one knows what happened
to her when she was just seven years old, she
grew in a thrust that night, because a piece of her
womanhood was taken at an early age.
It’s ten years later and she still shakes
when someone touches her skin. But,
she won’t tell, she keeps it within.

He bites his lips, fighting back tears,
as his friend says, “Guys who are raped,
are just too weak to fight back.”
So he should never tell a single soul,
what happened when his dad was
drunk that night, and he was too
small and scared to win the fight.

They will make up the excuses that
she was “drunk!” and “Did you see what
she was wearing? Her ass was hanging
out, she was asking for it!” They will say,
“boys will be boys.” And the word rape will
be used in society to describe the
dominance of winning someone
in a game of Call of Duty. If you tell me
there’s no Rape Culture, then tell me
why victims are too afraid to speak
up?

So many men have internalized the lie that they have uncontrollable sex drives, and no way to control their anger. They aren’t ashamed of their abusive behavior because they see it as a something natural to them and maybe even central to their masculinity. It’s scary as hell.

Some pictures from the rally today at Columbia. So much wonderful support for my sister and I! Emma and I are truly grateful to everyone who came, and everyone who was there in spirit.

This honestly makes me so emotional.

Singer CeeLo Green took to Twitter today to make an attempt to define what rape is, shortly after pleading no contest for charges that he slipped a woman ecstasy without her consent in 2012
