rape-victims

Everything wrong with society

Society raises robots 

Boys are taught that they can’t cry nor show emotion, taught that they can’t be human.

Girls are taught to hide their emotions, lest they be asked “are you on your period”, taught that it’s shows that you are weak.

Society is huge on double standards

‘Boys must be over 6ft, and have muscles"

‘Why are girls so self conscious?’

If you hate yourself, you must be fishing for compliments.

If you love yourself, you must be narcissistic.

Society has an obsession with victim blaming and ignoring the true problem

'Boys can’t be the victim of rape because they always want sex’

'All men are trash’

'She was obviously asking for it’

'Well what were you wearing?’

As if you could blame an entire gender on the actions of a few

As if the amount of skin you show determines your ability to consent and say NO

We are supposed to be able to think, we are not savages and should be able to understand that an absent of a YES means NO.

What was the point of this mini rant? 

To call society out on it’s bullshit! and to rant because of frustrations  

The point is we are not robots and have the right to emotions, we have the right to love ourselves because a bit of body positivity never hurt nobody, and IT IS NEVER THE VICTIMS FAULT why is it so hard to understand that?

Don’t tell me sexism isn’t real.

Don’t tell me sexism isn’t real when I still get groped when I go to a party, despite not showing interest.

Don’t tell me sexism isn’t real when people still ask rape victims what they were wearing at the moment they were assaulted.

Don’t tell me sexism isn’t real when men can not express their emotions without being called “feminine,” as if that’s a bad thing.

Don’t tell me sexism isn’t real when there are more than 130 million young girls who are denied education.

Don’t tell me sexism isn’t real when women who have many sexual partners are called “sluts” and “whores,” but men who have many sexual partners are just “playboys.”

Don’t tell me sexism isn’t real when men who are mentally ill are afraid to seek out for help in fear that they won’t be taken seriously.

Don’t tell me sexism isn’t real when I tell people that I want to be a surgeon and they tell me things like, “But you’re so pretty, don’t you want to pick something easier?” or, “Are you sure that’s not too hard for you?”

Don’t tell me sexism isn’t real when ~64% of illiterate adults are women.

Don’t tell me sexism isn’t real when I’m told to “cover up,” to not distract boys, but boys aren’t taught to control themselves.

Sexism affects us all, knowingly or not.

Don’t tell me it isn’t real.
