if someone “fights like a girl” you should be absolutely terrified of them have ever seen a girl fight they’ll rip your fucking throat out with their hands while the guys are still doing that weird cobra posturing thing for five minutes
you know there’s something wrong with our society when they put a rape victim/survivor leading a protest against her school’s reaction toward her rape on the cover of magazine with the words SEXUAL REVOLUTION in giant letters over her image and “movement against assault” in tiny letters in the corner
I’m glad this post pointed that out because tbh I didn’t even notice but this is important.
If men don’t have to be aggressive, women won’t be compelled to be submissive. If men don’t need to control, women won’t have to be controlled. Both men and women should feel free to be strong. It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by who we are.
