bastilleviosa asked: "There are obvious differences between both genders that prohibit COMPLETE equality in my opinion." I'm sorry, but I don't understand this statement in any way.

hi-i-like-bastille:

Men and women are just different. So many women preach feminism so strongly, but they’ll always expect the man to pay for them and whatnot. The two genders are also different psychologically and physically; Men are generally stronger and better at work than women, though I still believe in workplace equality, of course. I hate seeing feminists downplay the male gender in return. Sure, some men are idiots, but a fight for equality is not an excuse to shun the entire male population while doing so.

I’m really sorry because I know not all feminists are not like this at all, but I’m basing this off of what I’ve seen.

I just. Okay.

The standard of men paying is based in the fact that for many years women were considered the property of their husbands and were not allowed to have their own banking accounts or checking, generally speaking. It largely continues to this day for two reasons:

  1. men still make more than women. A white cis woman will make in a year what a white cis man in the same position makes by early October. If a man and woman are up for the same position, with the same experience and same pay grade, the man will be chosen. The man needs to be notably and significantly lesser than the woman to be disqualified in contest to her. And if you’re a woman with any family? You’re fucked. If you have a husband, children or dependents? You’re fucked. Men with families are considered a powerful asset; they have something for which to work. Women with families are considered sick days and maternity leave.
  2. men get their panties in a twist when we do try to pay. Have you ever been on a date with a man? Do you know how many times I’ve gone to pay my own half of a dinner date and been dismissed and had men become gravely offended that I dared try to buy my own steak? How many times I’ve tried to pay for my own ticket at the cinema and been dismissed? Men don’t want ‘gold diggers’ but a lot of them feel the need to spend money on women.

Men and women are different from each other psychologically and physically. Women and women are different from each other psychologically and physically. Men and men, as well. Third gender, nonbinary, bigender, genderqueer… We’re all human beings, we’re all different. While XY individuals usually have a naturally higher muscle ratio than XX individuals due to some benefits which are generally provided by a higher testosterone production and lower oestrogen production, would you really argue that Laila Ali isn’t as strong as or stronger than men you know? What about Venus and Michelle Williams?

I’m a woman who worked in construction and renovation. Do you think the guys took it easy on me because I was a girl? Fuck no. Because while you think “men are generally better at work than women” but you “believe in workplace equality”, I have actually lived with “workplace equality” in a highly physical field dominated by XY men. I don’t know if you know this, but to have “workplace equality” as a women in a male-dominated field, you have to be about 20% better than them at everything, and know a few tricks they don’t. Otherwise, you’re not pulling your weight.

You also can’t speak. Or exist, unless there are at least three cis men to be around. 1:3 ratio of men to women, that’s what people look at and see as equal. If you have a crowd with a 1:2 ratio of women to men? People think there are more women. If you have speakers at an event and your ratio of women to men is 1:2, people will perceive that you have more female speakers.

As for women shunning men…Well.

I’m not getting into rape culture here, but the Huffington Post compiled some things and RAINN has a pretty comprehensive stats page.

Now, as for women demeaning and deriding men: please note that when someone says something at the expense of an entire group of people who are involved in and benefit from their oppression, you don’t get to pitch a fit about it. You don’t even get to roll your eyes about it. The likelihood is that women who do this have a reason, the likelihood is that women who do this have been commodified by men or are close to women who have been. And that’s not something you get to dismiss or deride because “not all men are like that”. Because a lot of them are.

the first step towards confidence is not being afraid to be ugly

once you get over the fear of being unattractive and stop equating beauty with other good things in life (friends, love, happiness) it’s a lot easier to love yourself unconditionally

your job is not to sit around and be pretty and easy on everyone else’s eyes

your job is to do whatever the fuck you want and look however the fuck you want while doing it

This is how I got confident

do you ever get so annoyed at everything that you start to get pissed off at even little things like a spoon clinking against a bowl or sounds of people talking
