My favorite argument of all time…“you are murdering an unborn child”. First of all, you need to educate yourself and take some biology classes. A fetus is not a child/human/person/unborn baby. It is a clump of cells. Second, 92% of abortions are preformed at ≤13 weeks. Only 1.2% occur after 21 weeks.

“Don’t have sex if you don’t want a child?”
First of all, who are you to tell me what I should and should not do with my body? Second of all, it’s ridiculous to expect people to take up a vow of celibacy until they are ready to get pregnant. So if a woman doesn’t want to have kids, she should never have sex then? Does that apply to men? Are men ever told not to have sex until they are ready to have a baby? Are men ever told to be more careful? Do men carry babies for nine months? No, no and no.

“You should’ve been more responsible” — somehow this always falls on women.
Every contraception has a chance of failing. Nothing is 100% safe except…celibacy. So, here’s a friendly reminder that men are just as responsible for the pregnancy that occurred like women are, the only difference is that women get to decide if they want to keep it or not.

“Choose adoption” — hmmm…
Fuck no. Women are not obligated to be your broodmares.

The pro-life movement is less about fetuses and more about punishing women for having a sex drive. If you are so against abortion, use your pathetic excuse of a brain to push for better access to contraception, safer methods, education, instead of shaming girls who have sex. At the end of the day, you’re not pro-life, you’re anti-safe abortion. You can’t take away that choice from women because you don’t like it. Your emotions are not somebody else’s responsibility. Neither is your religion. A woman's body is her own fucking business. Pro-Life opinions are based off of misogynistic garbage, and that’s the end of it.

“If a fetus is a person then why don’t they issue conception certificates?

If a fetus is a person then why can’t we claim it on our taxes?

If a fetus is a person then why do we count age starting from birth?”


Remember that your beliefs are valid, but they are only valid to you. Keep your beliefs out of a woman’s uterus.

Why is it such a fucking taboo for women to enjoy sex. We pass judgment and punish women who enjoy sex regardless of the number of sexual partners. And somehow this specific “number” is defined by society’s standard of how many partners a woman can have without being shamed for it. It’s absurd, outdated, sexist and harmful. It sends out a message that women are nothing more than their sexuality. Stop reducing a woman vagina down to nothing.

I'm sorry, but if the number of sexual partners a girl has had bothers you, you’re probably just insecure about your own sexual performance. If all you prefer is virgins/inexperienced girls — PLEASE do us all a favor and shut the fuck up.

Lets fucking normalize women enjoying sex without being shamed for it — sex is sex.

This crazy idea that a woman loses value when she has sex needs to stop. A woman’s sexual history does not define her, nor change her, or make her “loose”(biology 101).

Why is it “respecting yourself” gender specific? If you want to have sex with someone, go do it. That’s respecting yourself.

No one is a slut — it’s a made-up word used to shame women for having sex. Is it that difficult to comprehend that women enjoy sex just as much as men do? Quit calling women sluts and whores, for doing exactly what you do.

How about you shame men who rape, rather than women who have sex.

Can we just love and fuck in peace? I wish ya’ll a fuck load of safe sex.

Let us talk about the scums of the earth. Who are they? Let me enlighten you. Fathers (brothers, uncles, male cousins) who think they are entitled to their daughters bodies.

Overprotective fathers posing with shotguns or shirts reading “can’t date my daughter”, are creepy as fuck. When did you assume the role of your daughters sexuality? This behavior is a celebration of daughters as property. Your daughter is your daughter. NOT your property.

And teaching young girls that they are sexual beings that need to cover up in order to remain chaste and pure, is nothing but toxic. Dictating the sex life of your daughter is disgusting and creepy. Somehow our worth is contingent on our sexual history - this obsession with having “virgin” daughters that remain under your control until marriage. Then what? To be the property of her husband? This is the only time that men actually acknowledge the real and present danger they are to women. So instead of “protecting” your daughter by limiting her, maybe raise your sons right.

High-fiving your sons for having sex, while shaming your daughters is hypocritical. “Rules for dating my daughter” should be more like rules for getting over your archaic misogyny.

Here’s the thing. I don’t find anything wrong with dad’s wanting to protect their daughters, but do not exclude your sons. Don’t dismiss your sons feelings and teach them to “man up” and not be sensitive. Stop giving special treatments to your sons and praising them for being “men”, if you’re going to be furious when your daughters do the exact same thing. It’s appalling and sexist.

The ideal father-daughter relationship is built on trust and mutual respect, and if those don’t exist then the “protectiveness” is harmful. Because the issue at hand is refraining your daughters to abstain from consensual sex, instead of preventing/enlightening sexual assault. By restraining and controlling your daughters, you are teaching them that 1. they can’t make their own decisions and 2. their bodies are not their own.
This mindset feeds right into rape culture, due to this archaic and misogynistic view—and so boys will grow up believing girls do not have the right to their own bodies.

PLEASE STOP perpetuating the idea that women can be owned. It’s her body. Not yours.

Here’s what you can do:

  1. Teach your daughters to speak up for themselves.
  2. Let them know that you are there for them always, no matter what.
  3. Reinforce the notion that THEY are in charge of their body — no one else.
  4. And to never be afraid to come to you if they've been assaulted or mistreated.

A show that illustrates the most important thing in the whole damn world; women helping women.

A show about the nuances of violence, rape and sexual abuse and the importance of supportive female relationships.

Accompanied with an incredible cast, acting, writing, cinematography and the soundtrack — it was riveting to say the least.

The last 15 minutes were probably one of the best edited sequence that I’ve ever seen on television. Even though it was almost completely silent, the last major reveals that happen without any dialoge show how much of the female communication is nonverbal. All done without a single word. Simply due to the fact that women have been socialized not to raise their voice or be loud. But what strikes me is how loud silence can be. Women have developed this skill of nonverbal communication in order to protect themselves and it can easily be communicated without a single word, which is extremely powerful. There’s complete silence, but we still know what they’re saying.

○ ○ ○

We understand each other without even saying a word.

“Why didn’t you just say no? Tell him you’re not interested. Walk away. Tell him you have a boy friend. Push him away. Scream.”

Because a simple “no”, can be a death sentence.

Men can go from “friendly” to hate in seconds, just from being rejected and hearing “no”. Women are killed for refusing to give out their numbers, for saying no to a drink, no to a date — at what point are we allowed to say no?
At what point would you find it acceptable for us to actually have THE right to make our own decisions?

Please remember that no one is entitled to your attention. You are not here to serve men. You should have the right to refuse without being killed for it. Stop romanticizing controlling, stalker behavior.

Learn to say no without feeling guilty — but it’s more easily said than done when your “no” can mean your life.

Be just as brutal. Carry pocket knives. Do whatever it takes. Because what the fuck are we supposed to do? This is our reality. Our lives.

How fucking dare we bleed. How disgusting to celebrate the natural and normal parts of our bodies when society constantly shames us for it. There is a very long global history of cultural stigma around menstruation, that has directly impacted the health and safety of girls and women.

But here’s the deal, “Menstruation is the only blood that is not born from violence, yet it’s the one that disgusts you the most.”

The fact is that in many countries, menstruation is a taboo. It is also very common in these countries to consider women as impure and cursed, while she’s on her period. In addition, many women and girls are excluded from certain environments and/or social groups during menstruation. These myths are also held by many religious people and institutions.

Girls grow up being taught that their periods are disgusting and something to feel ashamed of.

Blood splattered from a horror movie is fine. Blood splattered from violence is fine. Blood splattered from anything but, the natural act of menstruation is taboo.

This is a problem in many countries due to the fact that girls are not provided tampons and pads which are absolutely necessary during menstruation. And it is not acceptable that women are forced into “menstruation huts”, and are treated as (even) less when they are menstruating and viewed as dirty, unclean and disgusting.


If you think periods are gross, you need to realize that you’re only here because your mother had a functioning menstrual cycle.

Recently, there's been a lot of confusion around the word 'feminism' and people who desperately want to shift the focus from women to men. I present to you, "man hating feminists". According to some people, feminism has gone "overboard" and is only about hating men. That's interesting.

Given the fact that women are raped, murdered, harassed and abused on a daily basis, with little to no punishment given, I'd say it's quite surprising that we all don't hate men? My sarcasm aside, there's a reason for all the hate that women feel. There is a reason to why we fight and raise our voices. There's a reason for saying "men rape" instead of "some men rape".

Yet, men and women fail to understand this. Man-hating doesn't get you killed. It annoys you. Women-hating, on the other hand, kills women. It has consequences and it's serious. Men are taking offense and allowing their fragile ego's to be hurt, instead of rising up and participating in the eradication of such vile behaviors. So until then, I will continue to advocate why "trash" is a great and appropriate adjective for describing men.

We get killed and raped because we are women and it is more or less accepted by society, due to the fact that we live in a patriarchal society. But do you even care? Does it even bother you? Or do I need to mention your sisters name to get your attention?

Misandry annoys. Misogyny kills. We've far exceeded the notion of politely asking men to stop raping us and this "hate" that is directed towards men, is a response to the treatment of women. If feminist now hate men so much, ask yourself why and think about why we would hate men in the first place.

Now, to those "not all men" apologists who love to link feminism with man-hating, you've shown your fragile masculinity, proving not only that you're privileged, but that your main concern is that "not all men rape". I wish my main concern was having to deal with "men calling women trash" and not having to think about rape every fucking day. I'm sick and tired that everything always boils down to protecting men. They are to be protected from "our hatred". Our hatred that leads to zero tolerance for harassment, abuse, rape and murder. Are you seriously asking us to kiss the back of your hand instead of protesting in the streets? Does the thought of women coming together and raising their voices frighten you so much? Our hatred only leads to a revolution.

LET US HATE. LET US BRING A CHANGE.
Stop ignoring the real issue ((RAPE)) by making us talk about your hurt feelings, but I'm guessing it's irrelevant for you because your priority is your weak ass pride.

The image of a neighbor walking out to find an abused, naked woman on the floor, surrounded by 20 men with their dicks out, will forever torment me. It truly makes my blood boil and I'm so angry and sad for her. I could be working out or watching the game, and that image would pop up out of nowhere.

It's utterly disgusting how these vile men terrorized her body. She will forever torture herself with this. I can't even imagine. I can't even find the words to describe how furious it makes me.

Besides the fact that we live in a patriarchal society that more or less allows rape, (based on the lack of punishment), a woman in this society, is always a body first. Women are objects and slaves, before anything else. We deserve what happens to us because we have been taught that our worth equals our body, and how well we look after it. In other words, if we're raped, it's our fault and we are forever tainted and dirty. Which is why many men can't comprehend the basic thought of us owning our bodies. It belongs to them, as they have the right to violate and rape us whenever they deem necessary. And it's even more of an issue when they aren't punished for it, hence, why a rape culture pretty much exist on every inch of this planet.

It's bad. The situation today is unacceptable. When a woman gets raped behind a dumpster or is gang raped for four hours, and gets to walk home with merely a slap on the wrist, truly shows how little we think of women.

Women are, first, an object.

To women:

Stay at home

Don’t go jogging alone

Don’t drink alcohol

Don’t go out when it’s dark.


Do you see a pattern? There is a deeply rooted problem with shifting the focus on what women can and should do, instead of pointing at men who rape. Headlines reading “ rapist loose, stay at home” are very problematic, due to the fact that it indirectly hints that women who DO go out deserve what may happen to them. Not only are women being limited by being urged to stay put and take precautions whenever possible, but women are once again carrying the responsibility on their shoulders.

Should our freedom be limited because men are going around raping women? Should we have to suffer and do our best to stay away? So what happens when we don’t want to hide? What happens when we decide to go for a walk, for a run? Take a trip to town or the grocery store? Is getting raped or murdered something we're supposed to expect? Is it inevitable?

Why do women have to keep explaining themselves, defending themselves, protecting themselves, be quit, scream, scream louder, and then ponder on the idea of why we were raped? As if it’s our fault. As if we asked for it.

Clearly, there are ‘few incentives’ not to rape women, and it’s not hard to guess why. You can rape someone and walk away a free man. Whether you then accuse her of lying, saying it was consensual or not ‘clear enough’ — it’ll be your word against a raped woman whom no one will believe.

It doesn’t matter what women say or do because this kind of behavior is deeply rooted in our society and in the way that men view objects, ops, I mean women.

In order to put an end to this, boys need to be taught about consent and respect from kindergarten. We clearly can’t send everyone back to kindergarten, so what do we do? Maybe start punishing men who rape with actual punishments instead of letting them go with a slap on the wrist? Maybe we start taking this seriously for once and actually stand up for all women?


And maybe, just maybe, if we’re lucky, we’ll start castrating and hanging rapists one at a time...
