"I hate women. I fucking hate women." 

"I don’t understand why you won’t date me?!"


Oh okay. 

I’ve completely detached from my feelings and have made myself into a case study. 


If you're a feminist, like me - you've been told probably at least 5 times a week that you really hate men.
The basis for this argument is that we say things that make us sound like we really hate men.
What they don't tell you is that the perception of what you're saying is fucked. It doesn't matter what you say, they want to believe you're man hating.
And I give you example XYZ:
*Facebook status of friend from childhood who I don't know very well anymore but that made my heart hurt*
"Just want to point a few things out. If you constantly post half naked pictures with everything ya momma have you hanging out. Dot e mad when men look at you as easy,sluttish, a whore, or the neighborhood bicycle. Have self respect and then maybe men would respect you. Second if you have a man and your posting half naked pictures with your ass and tits hanging out your disrespecting your man and need to be smacked by your mom. Third stop posting half naked I tired of yourself and you a mom. It's inappropriate. You may not thing but your children will see those one day. And last of all don't make yourself look like a where accept friend requests of people you don't know and then get mad when men treat you how YOU put yourself out there. Act like a whore get treated like a whore so don't be mad you did it to your sn self"
my comment: "Just my quick two cents, I don't know your life - but nothing any women does ever warrants any male treating them with disrespect. Regardless of how many clothes they do or don't wear. If you don't want to date them because of that, or befriend them, whatever - that's fair. But nothing gives a man the right to disrespect a woman. And we can't believe that it does as women. "
Unknown male's response: "^^^^^ So what you're saying is the right to disrepect people is a woman's right only?"
my response: "I didn't say that at all. If someone asked me, "is it okay for a woman to disrespect a man" I'd say absolutely not. I believe you should show everyone respect, regardless of your or their gender.But there is a common belief among men and women that a girl wearing a certain amount of clothes, or having slept with a certain number of men (which is nondescript), warrants being treated with disrespect, and that makes me really sad."
Unknown male's response: "Acting like a whore gets you treated like one...I'm not saying it's right, but it's what it is."
my response: "Accepting that things "are what they are" is the only reason things are what they are. If you don't think something is right, change it. Don't do it."
Unknown male's response: " I voted for obama, I'm all about change. I respect what you're saying though, good points."
Even though I said nothing about disrespecting men, the immediate assumption was that I was insinuating only women can disrespect men. This has to be changed. Use logic, be patient, and be respectful. A lot of people will listen if you don't meet their defensive stance and you calmly lay things out for them.
This has been a PSA about feminism on facebook by me.

Everyone’s fucked up. You’ve just gotta decide what kinda fucked up you’re into.

Young men need to be socialized in such a way that rape is as unthinkable to them as cannibalism.
