Social Experiment: Tattoos and Piercings
So my friend today said society is fucked up because it believes that it is okay for the male gender to have tattoos and piercings, but not for women. Seeing as we are society, or at least a part of it, I decided I needed to prove a point.
Reblog this if you think that a person’s body is their body and if they want a tattoo or piercing, their gender shouldn’t make a difference.
Dear Feminist (The Aftermath)
I received a depressingly predictable response to my post last night from a plethora of people who seemingly only read the words “feminist” and “calm down.”
My point was clear: stop just losing your shit on the people who are trying to understand and help us understand.
But again, the knee-jerk reaction by the angrier feminists (please note this specification) exposed the misdirected blind rage that’s rife within the movement. Was I telling the movement as a whole to calm down? No. Was I generalising all feminists as being angry? No. Was I ‘making it about me’? What the fuck does that even mean? Also, interestingly, a lot of folk assumed it was directed at women. I don’t recall specifying genders.
All I want is for the world to be a better, equal place. If that means pissing a few people off and telling the folk who are actively halting progress to stop being a fucking prick then so be it.
Save your rage. Equality isn’t a secret little club that only you get to know the password to.
