What do you think about all the people who don’t understand feminism? Especially the women who supposedly “are against feminism because they don’t hate men”? Should we argue or is it a lost cause?

No, we shouldn’t argue. We should teach. We should enlighten. We should in the friendliest of spirits and without the slightest trace of condescension drop so much fucking knowledge on those people that it crushes their flawed and simplistic understanding of gender politics.

We should be patient in the face of ignorance until we know for sure that it is willful. We should give them every opportunity to change their minds, because at the end of the day, very few people are built around a core of malignant, incurable misogyny. Very few people have a world view so grotesque that they actually believe women should be subjugated. Very few people will openly admit that equality isn’t a noble pursuit — especially women for whom so often their only fault is being misguided about the fundamental concepts.

No one is a lost cause until we find out for sure that their identity is tied to an aggressively misogynistic belief system, and when we come across those broken souls, we don’t argue. That’s wasted breath. We simply mark them with red flags and keep them at arm’s length, because those are the ones who aren’t safe to be around.

HEY ACE BABES

reminder that you are a person worthy of love and respect and that whatever sort of love you have to give is so valuable even though it isn’t always the same as other people’s. your love (whether it be romantic or platonic or sensual or whatever) and the way you express it are wonderful and unique, just like you. if you are looking for a significant other you bet your sweet behind that someone is out there who will appreciate and cherish you and what you have to offer from your heart. don’t ever feel the need to settle for somebody because you feel like the only person who take you. you are not broken or missing parts.you are wonderful and deserve someone who knows that.
