yes all women

I will never understand why it is ok for men who are overweight to walk around the beach topless and nobody even looks or questions it but the second an overweight girl wears a bikini people stare and make comments such as “wow she should not be wearing that!” Like god forbid a girl that’s a little bigger has enough confidence to walk around proud of her body just like men do every single day.

My friend (marked in blue) posted her frustrations with being  called “girl” despite  being almost 30 years old, and how you wouldn’t call a man “boy”.
She expressed her anger towards being infantized…(which is so NOT a contoversial thing to say…It should literally go without saying WHY it’s not cool to talk to an adult like they are a child)….

….and two male family members just HAD to pounce in to mock her ….

One (marked in black)  being outright asshole-ish, the other (marked in red) kinda…goaded it on, like whooooaaaah LOL gonna make her so mad, LOLOL

I am just…so fucking tired of this…

So tired…

And my female friend just lost a father like 3 weeks ago, still mourning…and these male family members (who know she is mourning) treat her like shit…What the fuck? Can’t sexism and patriarchal bullshit EVER just take a break?

I am so tired of it….

But even after all this, showing this example of blatant sexism….I STILL have to reassure men that I don’t hate all of them…

So tired….

There is something moon soaked and dawn flavoured about her. Something kissed by the wild and loved by lightning. She looks like Artemis after a night of storm hunting. She looks like the sun as it rises after kissing the dawn.

The difference explained
  • Men: Makeup is why I have trust issues.
  • White cis women: Men wanting to rape and/or murder me because I happened to catch their attention is why I have trust issues.
  • Cis women of color: Men wanting to rape and/or murder me because I happened to catch their attention, or because of my skin color, is why I have trust issues.
  • White trans women: Men wanting to rape and/or murder me because I happened to catch their attention, and cis men or women trying to rape and/or murder me when they find out I'm trans, then people blaming me for the crimes committed against me while my rapist and/or murderer goes free, is why I have trust issues.
  • Trans women of color: Men wanting to rape and/or murder me because I happened to catch their attention, and cis men or women trying to rape and/or murder me when they find out I'm trans, or because of my skin color, then people blaming me for the crimes committed against me while my rapist and/or murderer goes free, is why I have trust issues.
  • All women, to men: Boo hoo, cry me a river about your petty problems.

She runs into him again before the mission is over, tall and broad and wearing a star upon his chest, the same as the one on his shield, the same as the ones on her uniform. (x)
