I CAN’T EVEN PUT MY HAIR IN A FUCKING BUN
Boys hurt too
i am absolutely terrified and horrified by this
This is a stat that many MRAs will use in support of Men’s Rights but I can say with full confidence that the male suicide rates are a product of the patriarchy. Our society portrays emotional weakness and brokenness as a strongly feminine trait, so depressed or suicidal men are far less likely to seek out help for their problems and those that do are less likely to be given the support they need. “Man up” is something I have been told time after time in my times of my own depression and thoughts of suicide, it’s disheartening and there are those who will not get better without support. So these thousands of young boys who will never again walk this earth, taken from their friends and family by their own hands are largely victims of the patriarchy. Fight the patriarchy, for men, women and everyone outside and in between.

1. Girls Shalt Not Have Sex.
(someone asked me what the guy word for ‘slut’ is
and I couldn’t find an answer.
it’s an old story: a rumour goes around that so-and-so
blew a boy in the disabled toilets.
the girl fakes a cough to get herself sent home
to escape the classroom-wide hiss of ‘slut’
while the boy she blew walks into the same class
and is greeted by an onslaught of high-fives)
2. Girls Shalt Love Boys.
(when I was ten, there was a movie trailer where two girls
leaned in for a kiss, and I felt sick for the rest of the day.
it took four years
along with faux-casual questions to friends
useless quizzes on the internet
entries in a diary that I later scribbled out
to admit, fine, okay, yes,
and another year after that to say it without mumbling)
3. Girls Shalt Not Be Bitches.
(it took over ten years of school for me to realize
my women teachers got called bitches
for doing things that my male teachers got called efficient for.
we were assigned to a group project in science class
and whenever my friend tried to tell the others to quiet down
so they could get on with the work,
she was jeered into silence
and she never found it fair that her boyfriend did
the same thing and the noise stopped.)
4. Girls Shalt Have A Vagina.
(she introduced herself with a deep voice and a gushing smile.
she had a pink dress and an adam’s apple
she had a necklace resting above her cleavage
she had escaped from an all-boys high school
and I didn’t understand until I learned later
gender is more than the two rigid boxes
that we are told to tick one of)
5. Girls Shalt Smile.
(he frowned when the subject was brought up
and he shrugged a lot as he explained
that we look better when we smile. Less hostile.
His shrugs stiffened when I asked him why we shouldn’t look hostile.
‘I dunno,’ he said, dropping to a mumble. ‘Girls aren’t s’posed to look hostile, I guess.’
The next time someone walked past me on the street
and told me to smile,
I gave him my sunniest grin
and a middle finger.)

“I’m sorry. This is the first time I’ve hired a maid.”
The only woman on this movie whom I saw fit to raise a child, and she was the only one who couldn’t.
WOW THAT COMMENT WASN’T OKAY
Totally agree about the child comment.
oh shit, camera
there is nothing better than this
there really isn’t.
the lennon humor is the best thing on earth
I remember the first time someone told me to keep Mace in my purse for self-defense, I thought they were talking about an actual fucking medieval weapon mace.
I wish that had actually been what they were talking about because that sounds badass as hell. Getting attacked by some dude? I DON’T THINK SO MOTHERFUCKER
