Feminists keep fighting for the right to walk around with little clothing or naked without being sexualized. Yet if there were men fighting for the same thing, feminists would be all like "NO! Men can't do that, it promotes rape culture!!"

notallfeminists answered:

Can you imagine men fighting for the right to walk around half naked? Can anyone?

Ridiculous.

Yes I agree. It WOULD be silly for men to fight for the right to walk around half naked. Because they already have that right….

In 1935 it was equally illegally for men to expose their chest in the US as it was for women. Men protested by marching topless. By 1936 it was no longer a crime and actually considered normal. 

So yeah, men did fight for the right to walk around half naked, and they got it as soon as they asked. 

Hahahaha I hate everything.

i don’t care if it’s a only a joke, please don’t make comments about how someone’s choice of field of study isn’t going to take them anywhere because it can be a great source of stress and your joke won’t help.

also, destroy the idea that we should only pursue dreams if they are likely to give you status in this capitalist piece-of-shit society.

Or, to put it another way, as long as white Americans take refuge in their whiteness—for so long as they are unable to walk out of this most monstrous of traps—they will allow millions of people to be slaughtered in their name, and will be manipulated into and surrender themselves to what they will think of—and justify—as a racial war. They will never, so long as their whiteness puts so sinister a distance between themselves and their own experience and the experience of others, feel themselves sufficiently human, sufficiently worthwhile, to become responsible for themselves, their leaders, their country, their children, or their fate. They will perish (as we once put it in our black church) in their sins —that is, in their delusions. And this is happening, needless to say, already, all around us.
