Not all Guys are like that

This. Every woman relate.

Feminism and Tea

At 15 a boy told me that if I really liked him, I’d fool around with him. Afterwards, he said he only saw me as a friend, but we should still have sex sometime. But not all guys are like that.

My first time going to a nightclub, I was pushed into dancing with a guy I didn’t know. After he tried to stick his hand in my pants under my dress, I pushed him away and he followed me til I found my friends, who said ‘that’s normal, it’s just what happens’. But not all guys are like that.

My boyfriend of 2 and a half years called me a liar and untrustworthy because I decided I wasn’t actually in the mood to have sex. It was easier to lie there and fake orgasms than have the fight that would ensue if I said ‘no’. He was a ‘nice…

What equality?

It makes me sick that there are still people in the world today that treat others as if they’re inferior.
There is no equality. Uganda is sickening. There are millions of slaves in the world still; there are more slaves in the world today than ever before.

The Iona Institute in Ireland… It’s been bothering me so much but I just can’t speak about it. The thought that I’m an inferior person, a disgusting, vile person because of my sexual orientation? How are there still people like this? I don’t have the same rights as the rest of my family, as criminals, and even the religious bigots. I always thought gay marriage would get passed in a referendum, but young people don’t vote and the older population are more conservative. I’m not as hopeful as before. I’m not even looking forward to it. It makes me feel like shit and it’s not something I can control.

If only my family and friends knew how much this affected me. Very few of them would even care about gay rights, after all, it doesn’t affect them.

No country is progressive if there isn’t equal rights for all its citizens.

“Why Won’t You Educate Me About Feminism?”

Perfect

The Belle Jar

He doesn’t hate women.

Above and beyond everything else, he wants you to know this: he does not hate women.

He has two daughters, for god’s sake, and a wife that he adores beyond anything else, and a sister that he texts every day and a mother who is the strongest person that he’s ever known – yes, stronger than any of the men he’s met. So don’t think that this is because he hates women.

If anything, his real problem is loving women too much.

See, he just wants his daughters to grow up safe and happy. And to be honest, some of the things that you’re saying – that these feminists are saying – are troubling to him.

He just wants to have a sort of academic chat. Peer to peer. Grownup to grownup. That’s all. He’s not saying you’re wrong – not by a long shot! He…

I’m also grateful for..

My crazy family! For making each other laugh and baking great cakes! We’re stronger than we realise. We’re closer than we make out to be. We’ve all been through everything together. I’m grateful I wasn’t ostracised when I came out, like some of my friends were. we don’t need to be affectionate to show our love and respect for eachother; we have cakes and mocking and picture messages for that 🙂
