i’ve never heard a guy say “i’m going to stay with her because i don’t want to be alone”

that’s only something i’ve ever heard a girl say

I don’t know… I think it’s just that it’s less socially acceptable for men to vocally say they’re lonely.

But I see dudes all the time who stay with women they don’t love because they can’t be with the person they actually want OR because they think it’s better to have somebody than nobody in general.

Or men who constantly keep tons of women around under the veneer of being a “player” but really they just can’t deal with being their own company.

Okay, I cheated and uploaded 8. But these were times when I felt beautiful. Either because I was having fun or I especially liked my hair or outfit! But my best indicator of feeling beautiful is just being in a happy, fun mood!

Women and young girls are assaulted, raped, and killed everyday… All because they said no or did not make themselves more available to men…

YET all you have to say is “Not all men”

Not only are you disregarding all of the facts..all of the proof that men have the power to do horrific things when rejected or denied, but you are placing the blame on the oppressed… You are telling victims that they are not entitled enough to fear you.. How dare they fear YOU…even if they have every right to do so.
You are getting into their heads… making them second guess themselves.
Making them believe that the uncomfortable situations they were forced into could have been avoided if they had just accepted the advances.. Or that every single situation is harmless and should not be viewed as the same or with the same caution…. Because being cautious is offensive to you.

How selfish is that? To tell someone that their safety doesn’t matter because catcalls and street harassment are expected and part of the norm… That it’s flattering and not harmful…Because boys will be boys…

When you bring life to that phrase “not all men ” you are saying
“I am aware of the dangers that women face at the hands of men…..but I’m not willing to fix the issue or advocate for it.. But what I AM willing to do is point the blame in any direction other than my own..”

"I don’t truly care about women at all.."

" - "not all men" is irrelevant (via black—lamb)

  • Israel continues to be a fucked up genocidal state.
  • Turkish Prime Minister has said he will not talk to Obama anymore.
