If you were to say these things out loud, someone might say something along the lines of “your childhood ended too early” BULLSHIT. I was a child, these things happened to a child, and I kept on being a child all the way through.
guys… if someone in your inbox says they are linking you to a 5SOS video… DO NOT CLICK THE LINK!!!!!! its not a virus or anything but 5SOS sucks dont click it. Reblog so others know.
i have more female friends who have been sexually assaulted than who haven’t and that is why i need feminism
you have to keep reminding yourself that:
- yes, those things really happened to you
- no, you’re not overreacting or mis-remembering
- yes, it “counts”
- yes, you deserve to share your truths
It still amazes me that I talk to guys who still think they get harassed just as much as women online. Like even from people who aren’t clearly and totally gross dumbasses. It kinda makes me think that, even in the best cases, it might be hard to really understand the sheer difference in frequency. You see a woman get harassed on a game and you go “Oh well I’ve been harassed” without understanding that there is seldom a session for her where that doesn’t happen or understanding what her inbox might look like…
That is a sort of stunning degree of difference.
"The data’s in! Women were lying about online harassment!”
"Aha! We knew it!"
“Yeah, they’ve been severely underreporting how bad things are for them, turns out.”
