“I believe in strong women. I believe in the woman who is able to stand up for herself. I believe in the woman who doesn’t need to hide behind her husband’s back. I believe that if you have problems, as a woman you deal with them, you don’t play victim, you don’t make yourself look pitiful, you don’t point fingers. You stand and you deal. You face the world with a head held high and you carry the universe in your heart.”—C. JoyBell C
The babysitter ran over to see why the very young child was crying. “Hey little buddy, what’s wrong?”
“Susie said I’m stupid because I’m a boy and I can’t play dollhouse with them.”
The babysitter said “That’s awful. Of course, ladies are empirically better, girls can do anything, ‘the women are the strong ones’, also that thing Zoe Saldana said,” she joked, “but that doesn’t mean you can’t play dollhouse. It’s so sexist against girls to say that.”
The boy was confused by her words. “No, it’s sexist against boys. What you said doesn’t make sense.”
“Uh, no, anytime a boy faces sexism its because other boys made it that way.”
“No, Susie’s just being mean.” The boy said.
The girl’s tumblr instincts could no longer be kept in check. “Cut out that mansplaining. Boys are afraid that girls will laugh at them, girls are afraid that boys will rape and kill them!” The little boy started to cry again at this.
“Oh noez, what about teh menz!” She whipped out a vial and held it under his eyes, and then, like so many social justice bloggers had desired to do before, she drank his white male tears.
