If you’re a man, and a woman friend confides in you about how shitty men are, it’s because she considers you one of the good ones–someone it’s safe to vent to. Don’t ruin that vibe with some “not all men” crap. She knows. That’s why she’s talking to you. You don’t have to say it; she’s already telling you, just not in so many words. If you were one of the ones she was talking about, she wouldn’t be confiding in you about it, so instead of getting offended, you should feel honored, my droogie.
idk girls and gays i don’t think enough people even within the lgbt talk enough about or even realize how humiliating and often frightening the lesbian experience can be. like i think a lot of people don’t understand that it’s deeply degrading and downright terrifying to be openly lesbian around straight men and have them blatantly fetishize you and/or talk openly and brazenly about wanting to fuck you knowing that you’d never consent to sex with a man (and obviously getting off to that fact) and how coming out as a lesbian often makes them even less respectful of your boundaries and more aggressive in pushing and breaking them. how it’s not just a nuisance but a real source of trauma for many of us but we’re expected to laugh it off and hardly anyone really seems to take it seriously or treat it as a real form of homophobia either
we are already living in the cyberpunk future and i know this because within a span of 3 days we went from this tweet:
to thousands of people making phony images and replying to them with their passionate desire to have them as a tshirt to overload the bots with nonsense and junk and send out warnings to shoppers like this:
and now we even have people replying to pictures of baby yoda with “i want this on a tshirt” knowing how ravenous disney is being with copyright in hopes to get the stores taken down altogether
i dont know what it is about stuff like this and the whole turn mei into a symbol of hk protesters thing but, its really reassuring for some reason
when’s my rich eccentric old relative with no heirs of their own who my parents never told me about because they’re considered an embarrassment to the family going to show up at my house suddenly without invitation or prior announcement and offer me a place on their expedition to find a legendary treasure or lost city widely regarded to be a myth by the greater scientific community
