A 14 year-old boy was recently raped at knife-point by a 20 year-old woman. When the story broke, it was primarily men who claimed he should have enjoyed it. It was feminists who validated his pain and spoke in support of him.
This is why we need feminism.
Why do people film their vacations?
I think it’s completely perverse
but in principle everyone does that
And I think it comes from that impression:
“I have an image of that, I own it.”
of course it’s silly
But it’s a very strong desire…
created I think by media
Because we see the world through the media
So we’re in danger of believing
that only through the media is there a reality
But it’s exactly the opposite
Or when you openly express doubt of victims, when you declare the problems of a marginalized group to not be real problems, when you dismiss or belittle them, when you hand-wave and pretend like victims of discrimination or assault or harassment are exaggerating, when you behave as though you believe people’s problems are some kind of a mass hallucination because you’ve never experienced them personally… at least one woman (or any person, possibly) you know and love has silently decided she cannot trust you.Well stated
