The only thing more infuriating than a man explaining that women could totally fix rape/sexual harassment/cat calling/whatever else if they just stopped being so stupid and weak and pathetic is a woman explaining that.
I know I shouldn’t hold women to higher standards than men. I know it’s ridiculous to expect women to be able to break out of the “women suck and always bad and wrong” that permeates our culture just because they’re women. And yet. There is nothing that sets my teeth on edge as much as women smugly explaining that they’ve never been raped, or they’ve always shut down sexual harassment, or they always have a quick-witted retort when they get cat called, and what the hell is wrong with every other woman in the world that they can’t do the same? It’s like we WANT to be raped and harassed and cat called!
Reading comments online is incredibly bad for my blood pressure.
