No One's Left Untouched

I copy/paste the stuff I like here. Minimal own content. I am not that creative.

It’s essential that we critique a sexist, misogynistic, racist, hyper-violent society without stigmatizing millions of people with mental health issues.

Men really need to stop calling women crazy

drnerdlove:

A thought experiment: Imagine how people might react if Taylor Swift released an album made up entirely of songs about wishing she could get back together with one of her exes.

We’d hear things like: “She can’t let go. She’s clingy. She’s irrational. She’s crazy.” Men would have a field day comparing her to their own “crazy” exes.

Yet when Robin Thicke released “Paula” – a plea for reconciliation with his ex-wife Paula Patton disguised as an LP — he was called incoherent,obsessedheartfelt and, in particular, creepy.

But you didn’t hear men calling him “crazy” — even though he used it as the title of one of tracks.

No, “crazy” is typically held in reserve for women’s behavior. Men might be obsessed, driven, confused or upset. But we don’t get called “crazy” — at least not the way men reflexively label women as such.

“Crazy” is one of the five deadly words guys use to shame women into compliance. The others: Fat. Ugly. Slutty. Bitchy. They sum up the supposedly worst things a woman can be.

So I was asked to write something for the Washington Post…

  • your weight
  • your interests
  • your friends
  • your taste in music

You don’t HAVE to forgive people that have harmed you ever like that is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard in my entire fucking life.

If YOU feel like you need to forgive somebody because that’s what you need to heal and move on from whatever they did, then go ahead and do it. But don’t you ever sit here and tell people that they must automatically forgive folks so they can be the bigger person.

Fuck. That. Shit.
