This year has been…interesting. There are very few aspects of my life that haven’t changed this year. Most of them have been good, if stressful, changes. It’s been an insane year. At one point, I realized that I needed to just stop. Stop worrying, stop planning, stop doing. I spent two or three months indulging, being lazy and just generally being self absorbed. I stayed up late and slept in....
Oh, yeah, this sums things up rather nicely.
Feminists: Hey. We'd like for women to be treated as equals.
Society: Oh sure. You want "equality" but then you expect men to open the door and pay for meals, is that it? That's not equality! That's special treatment!
Feminists: Um, no not really. You don't have to open the door and pay for our meals. We can do that ourselves.
Society: *gasp* What? You don't want men to open doors for you? Why do you hate nice people? No wonder chivalry is dead! You'd yell at a man for just being polite and opening the door for you?
Feminists: No! We're just saying you don't have to do it just because we're women!
Society: And while we're at it, how come you don't protect male victims of abuse and rape, huh?
Feminists: Actually, we think it's really terrible that men are forced to stay quiet about their abuse because they're worried about not being taken seriously. It's this Alpha Male myth that causes it. Men are abused and raped and they're not helped because men are supposed to be tough and able to handle it. This also goes for men not being able to express emotions.
Society: Oh, so you just want men to be a bunch of pansies then, huh? You hate men for wanting to be strong LIKE NATURE INTENDED THEM TO BE. You'll be sorry when you end up married to some weak, simpering fool who likes to talk about his "feelings"!
Society: Also, you can't have equal rights because women aren't aggressive enough to want higher pay and stuff.
Feminists: HOW ABOUT YOU GO FUCK YOURSELF AND THE HORSE YOU RODE IN ON?
Society: Jesus, calm down. No need to be so aggressive.
mello-dramatic: Everyone who reblogs this will get the title of a book to read based on their bio/posts. Everyone. I mean it. Well…considering that I have next to nothing on my blog, and tend to hide in the woodwork and just lurk, I’m really interested to see what you, a total and complete stranger, would pick for me to read! I’m also patient. I realize that tons of people...
