Why the Women’s Movement Is Still Important
So as I’m watching the Slut Shaming episode of Dr. Phil, I had my Facebook open in another tab.
Suddenly, I see this post by a sorority sister of mine from college. Let’s just take a minute to really analyze what’s happening here.
- The eight people who liked the post, myself included, are women
- The two people who either try to make light of the situation, or excuse it entirely, are men.
That’s right. One of them made a Get Back to the Kitchen joke. And then the other man,after I had called out the first man on his sexist bullshit,sought to excuse the elderly man while telling my sorority sister how she should react.
And the thing is, one is already acting like I’m being irrational here/vaguely accusing me of misandry.
These attitudes and practices and thought processes are HARMFUL to women!!! How effing hard is that to understand!
I honestly just can’t.
