Sexism Quotes

My daughter says she wants to smash the patriarchy. 

I told her "When you're 21, buy me a bottle of Tanqueray – you'll have the patriarchy smashed in an hour."
If you can’t disagree with a woman without reaching for all those filthy old insults, screw you and your politics.
“I’m sick of ‘liberal’ men whose mask slips every time a woman displeases them, who reach immediately for crude and humiliating words.
“When you do this, Mr. Liberal Cool Guy, you ally yourself, wittingly or not, with the men who send women violent p.ornographic images and r.ape threats, who try by every means possible to intimidate women out of politics and public spaces, both real and digital.

“Every woman I know who has dared express an opinion publicly has endured this kind of abuse at least once, rooted in an apparent determination to humiliate or intimidate her on the basis that she is female.
 
“Femaleness is not a design flaw. If your immediate response to a woman who displeases you is to call her a synonym for her v.ulva, or compare her to a p.rostitute, then drop the pretense and own it: you're not a liberal.” 
—J.K. Rowling

  Stop telling little boys they are invalid  

because they display ‘feminine’ qualities. Like softness is not a quality shown by men at all. Like sensitivity is a thing to be regarded with disgust and unkindness.

Stop telling them that they become less when they express emotion. Do not them that it doesn’t matter when boys show emotion, that they deserve to be ignored when they do. Do not dismiss their tears to toughen them up and turn their feelings into a joke because that is how you create sociopaths.

Stop saying, ‘You punch like a girl’ or ‘Yeah, that was all right…for a girl’. And stop telling your sons their tears make them girls – as though being a girl is the worst thing in the world. When the truth is being a girl is no different from being a boy when they are both just human beings.

Stop demeaning them by making the word ‘woman’ or ‘girl’ a method to control their behavior, a reason to bottle their emotions and instead be volatile and display violent behavior. Stop teaching them to bully each other until they are macho and man up. And the ones of them who do not fit into this ideal are effeminate as if that is a curse.

I wish society would stop telling little boys that showing emotion is the same thing as being a girl. And being a girl is the same thing as being weak.

Instead, never let your sons forget where their essence was just formed, when their bodies were most vulnerable, they were protected by the womb of a woman. If they ever call all women weak, remind them of the strength of their mother who pulled her whole body apart to give theirs a home.

Instead, teach them how to be kind regardless of their gender. Teach them how women and men are strong in their own ways. Teach them to respect the attributes they admire as one human to another.

Instead, raise boys who accept people as they are and are strong because of their belief in themselves. Raise boys who are strong enough to display emotion and softness, and not hide their feelings when they display their hopes and dreams. Raise boys who can appreciate the softness of a moonlit night as much as they appreciate the stormy anger of the sea.

After all, how are they supposed know how to respect women as much as men, if they are taught from a young age that women are lesser human beings.


Why is the term “friend zone” so popular when the term “unrequited love” already exists and is more accurate?
I suspect it’s because it shifts the locus of responsibility. “Unrequited love” focuses on the person who has the crush. The feelings being discussed are the crushing person’s, thus the responsibility in on them to get over their crush and move on. “Friend zone”, on the other hand, focuses on the crush object’s choices. The phrase erases the agency of the crushing person. All blame for their pain is put on the crush object. “Unrequited love” is something that can happen to both sexes, but “friend zone” is a sexist concept that implies that women are solely responsible for men’s happiness, and not men themselves.
FeministThought #2
Oh you think the guy who does ballet and is a cheerleader is gay? Or maybe he just really likes those hobbies and isn't afraid of what people think...

If I had a hammer, I'd smash the glass ceiling.
 

I got 99 problems and misogyny is all of them.

                       funny how when a girl is in love with a guy that doesn't love her back it's 'clingy' and 'pathetic'
                            but when a guy loves a girl who doesn't love him back it's 'romantic' and 'heartbreaking'


Opinions are like org'asms.

Most girls aren’t taught that it is okay to have their own and are only expected to further men’s.

                         VERBAL ABUSE AND BULLYING
                          IS NOT FREEDOM OF SPEECH
