"I’m not a feminist because I’m comfortable with traditional gender roles"
Oh really? You’re comfortable with colors defining whether it’s “for boys” or “for girls”? You’re comfortable with women being ordered to “go back to the kitchen” by people everywhere? You’re comfortable with men not being allowed to cry because it’s “too feminine”? You’re comfortable with catcalls and harassment? You’re comfortable with girls being sent home because they wore a bra, and someone saw? You’re comfortable with the sexualization in music videos, TV, and the media in general? You’re comfortable with rape justification and victim blaming, no matter who did it or who suffered? You’re comfortable with abuse towards men being waved off because they “gotta put up with it” or towards women because “they would never do that!”
Damn son, you’ve got balls of steel.
Or do you?
The thing is, one could easily argue it’s not even necessarily a huge problem whenever one single, individual film/episode/book/etc. doesn’t pass the Bechdel test.
The huge problem comes when you look at the outrageous amount of films/episodes/books/etc. that don’t pass the Bechdel test. Then it’s just like what the fuck, man, we’re really not asking for much here.
"Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law"
"How come millipedes have so many legs but can’t even move very fast"
oftentimes women might smile at cat-callers out of nervousness or pure fear because they know that if they react negatively that guy could get way scarier and even violent
it’s not a “wow i’m so flattered” smile it’s literally a “please don’t follow me home and murder me after this” smile
