Time for a feminist rant...
A guy posted this on the 2015 facebook group for my University:
Selling my books for poon. If you are a student interesting in obtaining these books I will not accept any cash, however you can offer me your body if you meet these simple requirements: 1. Female 2. Cleanly shaven 3. 18 or older 4. Sexually Attractive 5. Doesn’t talk a lot, because i probably wont be anyway 6. Wont get mad when i say “stfu bitch and show tits" Yeah that’s all, with the price of books being so unreasonable high these days i hope some of you take up my offer.
There are so many things wrong with this that I hardly know where to start. The worst part is that after I posted about how not funny and degrading this post was a female posted this:
I speak for women people and i think its pretty clear that these guys are joking and its not meant to be takin seriously. I understand some of you are concerned about the feelings of us women folk in regards to those comments and i think, now i could be wrong, but i dont think there are girls right now crying themselves to sleep wondering why someone would say something like that. And yes i do find everything that was said here hilarious. douchy sure but hilarious :)
NO!!! Being a jerk and degrading women is NOIT OK! Joking about abuse just trivializes it and makes it acceptable in modern society!
People then told me to stop because I was ‘feeding the troll.’ As if this was somehow my fault? NO! It is not my fault for making it known that this behavior is unacceptable.
Sorry for the rant, I just needed to get this out there.
