Because women have it so fucking hard. Especially in the First World. While women in Africa get their genitals mutilated, and women in the Middle East are subject to ACTUAL misogyny courtesy of a religion that teaches that it’s perfectly acceptable to beat them if they get out of line, because the man is stronger than the woman and it is his place to tell her what’s-what. That’s Islam, in case you didn’t know. A religion that the left suck’s the cock of, which just baffles me since they call everything under the sun sexist. I guess SyeTenAtheist was right after all. But don’t you worry, men. There is a list published of 100 ways to make women’s lives “more bearable.” I’m sure this isn’t going to be the cringiest thing ever. Nope, not even a little. Here’s a link to it, now let’s get on with this.
1. Before explaining something to a woman, ask yourself if she might already understand. She may know more about it than you do.
I don’t explain things to people unless they ask. I don’t give a fuck if they are ignorant. I’m perfectly fine with letting people wallow in their own stupidity. I live in America, after all. Dumb ain’t hard to find here. If she is asking for me to explain something, then she wants to know about it and I have been given an answer to if she knows more about it than I do.
2. Related: Never, ever try to explain feminism to a woman.
Here’s my explanation – a values system that has been horribly twisted into a PC buzzword battle here in the First World, but would be very useful in the Third World. Like in countries where women have to wear a burka or else they get beaten, and where if a woman claims to be raped and she doesn’t have three witnesses, she’s a lying whore and can be beaten by law. Countries like that could use it.
3. Trans women are women. Repeat that until you perish.
They identify as women, and I have no problem with that. Identify as whatever you like, sugar-tits. If they haven’t completely transitioned, then they are still biologically male, but they can identify as female and I have no issue. Doesn’t bother me or even concern me in the slightest.
4. RESPECT PEOPLE’S PRONOUNS. It’s not hard.
I couldn’t agree more! My pronouns are master/master/master. So when you talk about me, it has to be “master said that I’m stupid.” By the way, what does this have to do with making women’s lives more bearable? This seems like a pet peeve of yours that has nothing to do with women as a larger demographic.
5. Remember that fat women exist and aren’t all trying to get thin. Treat them with respect.
I treat everyone the way I would want to be treated. The Golden Rule.
6. In fact, just never comment on a woman’s body.
If she asks for my opinion, I’m going to give it. If she doesn’t like the answer, she shouldn’t have asked the question, should she have?
7. Be kind to women in customer service positions. Tip them extra. (But not in a creepy way.)
I tip people in customer service based on their quality of service. If my waitress is doing poorly, she’s getting a bad tip. Sorry, not sorry.
8. Trust women. When they teach you something, don’t feel the need to go and check for yourself. And especially do not Google it in front of them.
Um, no. If I hear some female tell me that women have magical wings attached to their butts, I’m going to Google right in front of them and show them that there is ZERO evidence of that contention. If you say something stupid in front of me, I’m going to revel in showing how dumb you are. Granted, if I know that a woman is an expert on something, I will listen with rapt attention. Like how my girly-mate in the Navy talks about military life, I find it engrossing beyond belief.
9. Don’t maintain a double standard for… anything, ever.
Oh boy does that not bode well for feminism. Hey, how’s that double-standard about if a partner is drunk during sex it’s rape? Only applies to women in every single piece of propaganda I have heard about it. Or if you don’t ask for consent every ten minutes, it’s rape. If she initiated sex with you and she doesn’t keep asking, is it rape? There are a LITANY of double-standards associated with modern, First World feminism that you lot are perfectly happy to ignore.
10. CLOSE YOUR LEGS ON PUBLIC TRANSIT, OH MY GOD.
If there is someone looking to sit, I’ll move. If there’s no one around, I’ll let my balls have some room. Your ignorance on male anatomy is quite something.
11. Trying to describe a woman positively? Say she’s “talented,” “clever,” or “funny.” Not “gorgeous,” “sweet,” or “cute.”
If she is being talented or clever, I’ll say that. If she is trying something on or doing her makeup and is looking for validation that it looks good, I’ll tell her she’s cute or gorgeous or any number of positive attributes associated with one’s appearance. Don’t fucking tell me how to talk to my people, bitch.
12. Examine your language when talking about women. Get rid of “irrational,” “dramatic,” “bossy,” and “badgering” immediately.
No. If that’s what they’re being, I’ll call them out on it. Sorry if that bugs you (not really).
13. Don’t think to yourself, I describe men like that too. A) You probably don’t. B) If you do, it’s to criticize them for acting like a woman.
Um, no. I describe them as such if they’re being irrational, dramatic, bossy, or badgering. I don’t associated adjectives with exclusively one gender. Stop forcing your beliefs and values system on me. I don’t appreciate it.
14. Do you love “fiery” Latina women? “Strong” Black women? “Mysterious” Asian women? Stop. Pick up a book on decolonial feminism. Read.
No again. I love smart, nerdy, interesting, thoughtful, loyal, or empathetic Latina, black, or Asian women. Don’t tell me how I think about these people. You are really forcing your personal insecurities on everyone else with this. I don’t know how much more of this I can take.
15. Stop calling women “feisty.” We don’t need a special lady word for “has an opinion.”
Yeah, this is all just your personal insecurities. I don’t describe women as feisty for having opinions. I consider them feisty if they like it rough during sex. If they have a lot of opinions, I consider them principled.
16. Recognize women’s credibility when you introduce them. “Donna is lovely” is much less useful than “Donna knows shitloads about architecture.”
What? I’m not following. I don’t introduce somebody as lovely. I introduce them as my girly-mate who I know from work, or college, or grew up with, or who is in the Navy. There are many terms I use to introduce people. I’m not her agent. It’s not my job to pimp out her credentials. I believe she is smart and capable enough to do that on her own. Way to show how “empowered” women are.
17. Think about how you describe the young women in your family. Celebrate them for being funny and smart, not for being pretty and compliant.
I have never raised being compliant as a virtue to extol. If the person is smart or funny, I will refer to them as such. If they are dumb as shit but look good, I’ll say they’re pretty. I’m not gonna give people credit they haven’t earned. America does that too much as it is.
18. Examine the way you talk about women you’re attracted to. Fat women, old women, queer, trans, and powerful women are not your “guilty crush.”
I don’t have “guilty crushes.” I have women I am attracted to. Sounds like you are forcing more of your insecurities on people. Don’t put that on me.
19. Learn to praise a woman without demonizing other women. “You’re not like other girls” is not a compliment. I want to be like other girls. Other girls are awesome.
Boy is this telling about the feminist mindset. You don’t want to be unique. You want to be a fucking hive mind. Good to know. Go join the Borg, bitch. As for me, I extol people who are unique. The biggest insult I can give for someone is to call them plastic. Fake. Just like everybody else.
20. Share writing by women. Don’t paraphrase their work in your own Facebook post to show us all how smart or woke you are. I guarantee the woman said it better in the first place.
I’ll share the writing of women when I find it worth sharing. And typically if I share someone’s post, I’ll just be hitting share. So yeah, that is dumb.
21. Buy sanitary pads and tampons and donate them to a homeless shelter. Just do it.
No. Don’t tell me what to do with my money.
22. How much of what you are watching/reading/listening to was made by women? Gender balance your bookcase.
No! Tell you what, you find me some great female science fiction, fantasy, or corporate espionage fiction and recommend it to me, I’ll check it out. I judge works based on the works, not who wrote or directed them. If that’s a problem, too fucking bad. Go write some good literature or direct some good movies. I’ll be right here.
23. Feeling proud of your balanced bookcase? Are there women of color there? Trans, queer, and disabled women? Poor women? Always make sure you’re being intersectional.
Oh fuck off.
24. Don’t buy media that demeans women’s experiences, valorizes violence against women, or excludes them entirely from a cast. It’s not enough to oppose those things. You have to actively make them unmarketable.
Examples, bitch. And don’t say GTA V, because I already don’t own that. I don’t buy GTA games because if you’ve played one of them, you’ve played them all. It’s boring. Tell you what, you list things that you think fit this category and I’ll tell you if I partake of them or not. And if I do like them, I will be happy to debate with you why I think they are perfectly acceptable. Good luck.
25. Pay attention to stories with nuanced female characters. It will be interesting, I promise.
I do like nuanced female characters. I also like nuanced male characters too. I like characters in my stories to feel human. How about you?
26. If you read stories to a child, swap the genders.
27. Watch women’s sport. And just call it “sports.”
I hate sports
28. Withdraw your support from sports clubs, institutions, and companies that protect and employ rapists and abusers.
I’m glad you brought this up. So you withdrew your support from Feminist Frequency, correct? She has a pedophile called Valis77 as her mod on her streams. Live up to your own standards, bitch.
29. Stop raving about Woody Allen. I don’t care if he shits gold. Find a non-accused-abuser to fanboy over.
I’m not gonna stop liking his films just because of the fact that he has been accused of things. I am not gonna stop liking films Kevin Spacey was in either. I can separate the art from the artist. It’s why I think Ashly Burch is a great voice actress, even though she has retarded-ass opinions and is an SJW.
30. It’s General Leia, not princess. The Doctor has a companion, not an assistant. It’s Doctor Bartlett, not Mrs Madame First Lady.
It’s First Lady Bartlett, bitch. You’re adding additional honorifics where none were required. English is hard, apparently. For you.
31. Cast women in parts written for men. We know how to rule kingdoms, go to war, be, not be, and wait for Godot.
No. This is another instance of you asking other people to do what you can do yourself. If you want to have films with women in male roles, go direct them. Feminists want the rest of the world to do everything for them. At least the creators of Steven Universe took their SJW ideology and ran with it. Got infinitely more respect for them than you.
32. Pay for porn.
Sometimes I do. There are vids from my favorite pornstars they make on Manyvids that I can’t get anywhere else. The women who prove their chops in porn earn my dough, not just anyone.
33. Recognize that sex work is work. Be an advocate for and ally to sex workers without speaking for them.
I love how you make it impossible to agree with you by adding shit on that wasn’t necessary. As an example – I do support sex workers. I want to legalize prostitution so we can get it off the street and help get women away from pimps. Get establishments that are professional and can be kept safe from STDs and violence. But you had to add on stupid bullshit about not speaking for them. I don’t claim to, bitch. I claim to support their right to have their world legally recognized and regulated. Fuck. Feminists make it so hard to agree with them on anything because they have to be so fucking combative in their approach to EVERYTHING.
34. Share political hot takes from women as well as men. They might not be as widely accessible, so look for them.
I follow plenty of women on Twitter with political opinions that run the gamut. I like nuance in my life. Do you?
35. Understand that it was never “about ethics in journalism.”
Yeah it was. Your piss-poor knowledge of history is not my fault.
36. Speak less in meetings today to make space for your women colleagues to share their thoughts. If you’re leading the meeting, make sure women are being heard as much as men.
I never speak in meetings unless I have to. Don’t have anything to add. Unless of course snark becomes an attribute that workplaces appreciate. Granted, if I have a question, I will ask, because I want to learn. And by the way, at every meeting I have attended, the one leading it has been a woman. The ratio of men to women in my office is totally XX sided.
37. If a woman makes a good point, say, “That was a good point.” Don’t repeat her point and take credit for it.
Nobody does this. Nobody, anywhere, does this. This is in the magical “Shit The Never Happens Land.”
38. Promote women. Their leadership styles may be different than yours. That’s probably a good thing.
If I am running a business, or am in a managerial capacity to promote people at a business, I’ll promote a woman if she is qualified. If she has proven that she has the capabilities to be promoted. I judge people individually. Sorry if that’s a problem (no I’m not).
39. Recruit women on the same salary as men. Even if they don’t ask for it.
Um, no. Salary negotiations is a skill. It’s one that has to be proven. I believe that women can measure up, they just have to be better about taking that risk. It’s science that women are more averse to risk-taking. That’s not my problem. You go on and on about how biology is just a construct. Here’s a chance to prove that.
40. Open doors for women with caring responsibilities by offering flexible employment contracts.
No. If I am an employer and I have very specific requirements for this position, and they can’t meet those or are unable to work under the requirements specified, that’s on them. Again, I believe there are plenty of women who are eager to prove themselves who will be up to the challenge. I love how this whole section devoted to business is basically talking down to women. Gotta love modern feminism.
41. If you meet a man and a woman at work, do not assume the man is the superior for literally no reason.
I assume that anyone could be a superior at work. That’s part of why I am courteous in general. I don’t want to make a bad impression on someone who may have power over me at some point.
42. If you’re wrongly assumed to be more experienced than a woman colleague, correct that person and pass the platform to the woman who knows more.
I have a coworker in my department right now who I direct people to all the time because she has been there vastly longer than I have and if they have questions I figure she can handle them better. I don’t make some big deal about it. The only reason they come to me in the first place is because I sit closer to the door and people are lazy.
43. Make a round of tea for the office.
44. Wash it up.
45. If you find you’re only interviewing men for a role, rewrite the job listing so that it’s more welcoming to women.
This is so fucking patronizing to women. Hey ladies, you are afraid of working at a job because the listing is scary! Yeah, that doesn’t talk down to women at all. Unbelievable.
46. Make sure you have women on your interview panel.
If there is a woman at the office who I believe has the criteria to judge who is qualified for the position, then absolutely. They may not have knowledge of certain things that are involved with this position that would exclude an applicant. If not, then no.
47. Tell female colleagues what your salary is.
No. I am under no obligation to tell anyone what my salary is. Nor should I be expected to.
48. Make sure there’s childcare at your events.
If it’s a family event, sure. If not, like a Christmas party or something, babysitters exist. I wanna watch Kelly get drunk and dance naked on the copier with the adults.
49. Don’t schedule breakfast meetings during the school run.
If the meeting is at the start of business, odds are it’s either at 8 or 9. Not my fault that most schools start then. If they work for me, they know to already be there at that time anyway. So they would have already dropped their kids off. That’s the price you pay for being a parent with a career. You have to make sacrifices. They could choose not to have the kid.
50. If you manage a team, make sure that your employees know that you recognize period pain and cystitis as legitimate reasons for a sick day.
If they have the leave hours, fine. If they don’t, then they don’t get paid. That’s how leave works in any business I would run.
51. If you have a strict boss (or mom or teacher) who is a woman, she is not a “bitch.” Grow up.
You can be strict without being a bitch. Plenty of teachers I have looked up to have been just that. There is a stark difference between a strict and effective leader, and a bitch who just wants to be in charge. I’m sorry nobody told you that.
52. Expect a woman to do the stuff that’s in her job description. Not the other miscellaneous shit you don’t know how to do yourself.
You ever see those sections on job listings saying there may be other tasks as required? That’s why. Because sometimes you get stuck at a job doing the ramshackle shit that has to be done. If I am a supervisor, then I will assign it. But they are free to ask for assistance if there is confusion on the task or if they need training.
53. Refuse to speak on an all-male panel.
54. In a Q&A session, only put your hand up if you have A QUESTION. Others didn’t attend to listen to you.
Guess what, nimrod, if I’m at a panel that is a Q&A and I put my hand up, it’s because I have a fucking question! Condescending bitch.
55. If you have friends or family members who use slurs or discriminate against trans or non-binary people, sit them down and explain why they must stop. (This goes for cis women, too.)
No. I believe in freedom of speech. I may not like it, and if they ask if I agree with them on their usage of those slurs, I will tell them I do not, but I believe people are free to say whatever the fuck they want. I’m not here to tell other people what to think. Unlike you, I don’t want to be a part of a hive mind. While I may not agree with some of my people all of the time, I believe that if everyone thinks the same, the world is really fucking boring. I’m aware that that is something totally antithetical to your view of reality. You want absolute homogeneity.
56. If you have friends or family members who use slurs or discriminate against women of other races, sit them down and explain why they must stop. (This goes for white women, too.)
See previous answer.
57. If you see women with their hands up, put yours down. This can be taken as a metaphor for a lot of things. Think about it.
Fuck you! If I have a question, I’m gonna fucking ask! If Linda asks the question I was going to, I’ll put my hand down, because I got my answer. But if I want to learn something at work, I am going to fucking ask.
58. Raising a feminist daughter means she’s going to disagree with you. And probably be right. Feel proud, not threatened.
If I have a daughter, I am going to expose her to what a toxic, patronizing, sexist, dogmatic hive modern feminism is. Believe you me, I will be exposing her to that, and it will be an eye-opening experience for her.
59. Teach your sons to listen to girls, give them space, believe them, and elevate them.
I’ll teach my sons and daughters to treat other people with empathy. Unlike you, I don’t have a double-standard. Which reminds me, you belief about not having double-standards, this list is a LITANY of them all on its own. You are so full of shit.
60. Dads, buy your daughter tampons, make her hot water bottles, wash her bras. Show her that her body isn’t something to be ashamed of.
Honey, I have lived with a couple of women. I’ve bought tampons for them, washed their clothes. I am not afraid of girl stuff. This is another belief that you have with no basis in reality. As for showing her that her body is nothing to be afraid of, if I have a daughter, I will dread the day that we have “the talk,” and will hope her mother is still part of our family so she can take the reigns on it just because I am not good with awkward situations. I would be just as awkward about my son. Probably moreso, because I figure I can’t weasel my way out of that one and I am just fucked.
61. But dads, do not try to iron her bras. This is a mistake you will only make once.
No, I wouldn’t. I’m not this retarded male stereotype you have in your head.
62. Examine how domestic labor is divided in your home. Who does the cleaning, the childcare, the organizing, the meal budgeting? Sons, this goes for you, too.
Here’s the thing, sugar-tits, if I have a partner that I’m living with, I figure the two of us would have an arrangement about how the household chores get done. That’s part of being in a relationship – talking to your partner. I’m sorry you never learned about that.
63. Learn how to do domestic tasks to a high standard. “I’d only do it wrong” is a bullshit excuse.
Oh look! Another example of things from “Shit that Never Happens Land”!
64. Never again comment on how long it takes a woman to get ready. WE ARE TRYING TO MEET THE RIDICULOUS STANDARDS OF A SYSTEM YOU BENEFIT FROM.
Oh fuck off! The ONLY people who care about how a woman looks are other women. Period. Or guys so vain that if you are with them in the first place you already accepted that. Who do you think reads beauty magazines? Who do you think judges the dresses of women at Hollywood awards shows? It’s other women! Men don’t care. I don’t benefit since I tend to prefer women who like how they look naturally and aren’t so concerned with how everyone else thinks. Self-confidence is a big turn-on in a romantic sense. Sexual too. I like a woman who knows what she wants in bed as well.
65. Challenge the patriarchs in your religious group when they enable the oppression of women.
I’m an atheist. Doesn’t apply to me.
66. Challenge the patriarchs in your secular movement when they enable the oppression of women.
No such animal. All of the male voices in the secular community I listen to are not sexist idiots like you.
67. Trust women’s religious choices. Don’t pretend to liberate them just so you can criticise their beliefs.
If they’ve embraced modern feminism, they are already a part of a church I don’t want into. So yeah, I’m good on this too.
68. Examine who books your trips, arranges outings, organizes Christmas, buys birthday cards. Is it a woman? IS IT?
Hey bitch, I live alone. Been single for a long time. I have no money for trips. That’s a nice dream I can have. Outings? Those happen when I have something I think looks like fun. Organizes Christmas? All me, honey. I make the desserts like I did last year that were a smash hit. Don’t buy birthday cards. A waste of money. So fuck off!
69. And if it is actually you, a man, don’t even dare get in touch with me looking for your medal.
I think you can suck a dick, bitch. Or a lick a pussy. I figure that’s more to your liking.
70. Take stock of the emotional labor you expect from women. Do you turn to the women around you for emotional support and give nothing in return?
Male or female, I do everything I can to support the people in my life, if they come to me. I put a lot of effort into being a good friend. I give and give and give, asking for nothing in return. It has sucked the life out of me. Makes how, when I am hurting and reach out, nobody seems to have the time of day hurt that much worse. I believe in loyalty to whoever is in my life. Too bad that it is a one-way street in my world.
71. Remember that loving your mom/sister/girlfriend is not the same as giving up your own privilege to progress equality for women. And that gender inequality extends beyond the women in your direct social group.
You were born with Original Sin! Now enter the church of feminism and be cleansed in the name of Anita!
72. Don’t assume that all women are attracted to men.
I don’t. I assume you aren’t. But one of my favorite girly-mates is gay as the day is long. So yeah, fuck off.
73. Don’t assume that a woman in public wants to talk to you just because she’s in public.
I tend to avoid talking to people in public on my own because I have crippling social anxiety. But because I am taller than everyone and people come talk to me, you’d never know that. When people talk to me, I am pretty great. If someone doesn’t, I try to avoid making eye contact with them.
74. If a woman tells you she was raped, assaulted, or abused, don’t ask her for proof. Ask how you can support her.
I will tell her to go to the police, because I want the person who did that brought to justice. See, my personal inclination to believe them due to a preexisting friendship needs to be negated by the issue being settled in a court of law.
75. If you see a friend or colleague being inappropriate to a woman, call him out. You will survive the awkwardness, I promise.
If someone is being a jerk to anyone, and I am familiar enough with them to approach them about it, I will. It’s called being a good person. And unlike you, I will do that if they are being that way to a man or a woman. It’s called not having a double-standard, which you clearly do.
76. Repeat after me: Always. Hold. Men. Accountable. For. Their. Actions.
Actions, sure. Words, no. If it’s a potential crime, I’ll hold them accountable if they are found guilty of it. I don’t believe in the court of public opinion that you all want to make.
77. Do not walk too close to a woman late at night. That shit can be scary.
Honey, I walk very slowly naturally. I guarantee you that she is outpacing me.
78. If you see a woman being followed or otherwise bothered by a stranger, stick around to make sure she’s safe.
If I see someone about to attack her, I’ll step in. Otherwise, I am not just going to make assumptions about a random person talking to a random female.
79. This should go without saying: Do not yell unsolicited “compliments” at women on the street. Or anywhere.
Again, crippling social anxiety. But there’s nothing to be in quotations about. I’m not yelling “nice titties!” to some female. But if someone I know is out and about and I see them, I may wave or something to get their attention. You all take anyone yelling things, no matter how innocuous, as a threat. That’s on you, not us.
80. If you are a queer man, recognize that your sexuality doesn’t exclude you from potential misogyny.
Recognize that there has been plenty of misandry on this list.
81. If you are a queer man, recognize that your queer women or non-binary friends may not feel comfortable in a male-dominated space, even if it’s dominated by queer men.
They can go somewhere else. I’m not forcing anyone to stay where I am.
82. Be happy to have women friends without needing them to want to sleep with you. The “friend zone” is not a thing. We do not owe you sex.
Got plenty of platonic women friends. And the friend zone exists in that there are people who you see just as friends and not potential partners. It’s not just men with “Nice Guy Syndrome” who invented that. You seem to forget that there are women who can be in there too. Plenty of women have guys they are interested in who don’t see them the same way.
83. Remember that you can lack consent in situations not involving sex—such as when pursuing uninterested women or forcing a hug on a colleague.
Wait, one of these things is not like the other. Pursuing an uninterested woman? Like how? As in asking her out on a date? Or asking if she wants to have sex? What’s the problem? So long as if she says no you don’t push it further, you did nothing wrong. Can only woman approach men about dating or sex? No wonder publications are asking why men are so pussy around women these days. You promote it.
84. Champion sex positive women but don’t expect them to have sex with you.
I assume no woman, ever or will ever, wants to have sex with me. My hatred of myself is a force of nature.
85. Trust a woman to know her own body. If she says she won’t enjoy part of your sexual repertoire, do not try to convince her otherwise.
I don’t do one-night stands. I do do friends with benefits, back when I had people in my life who dug that. If I am intimate with someone, I try and keep the lines of communication open. There is also reading body signals, like being them being uncomfortable. Unlike you, I think intimacy is a thing. How I feel for the men who would get with people like you. Those poor bastards. They stuck their dick in crazy.
86. Be sensitive to nonverbal cues from women, especially around sex. We’re not just being awkward for no reason. (You read “Cat Person,” didn’t you?)
What do you know, I just talked about this.
87. It is not cute to try to persuade a woman to have sex with you. EVER. AT ALL. Go home.
Being the Roosh V kinda creeper, yeah, that isn’t cute. But if you are in a serious relationship with someone and you want to talk about the idea of sex, it shouldn’t be off the table. That being said, don’t be a creeper. It’s a balancing act, one that has no clear answer.
88. Same goes for pressuring women to have sex without a condom. Go. Home. And masturbate.
If you are having sex with someone, communication is the point. If you are having a one-night stand, you are an idiot if you don’t have a condom. If you are in a serious relationship, there is no reason you can’t negotiate with your partner.
89. Accidentally impregnated a women who doesn’t want a kid? Abortions cost money. Pay for half of it.
And of the guys who wanted her to have the kid and don’t get a choice in the matter (I do support a woman’s rights to her body, but the lack of male options in getting to opt out of having a child is something I’ve talked about before)? Not all men are pigs who don’t want to be a good father. I’m aware you probably don’t believe that, but still.
90. Accidentally came inside a woman without protection? Plan B is expensive. Pay for all of it.
No. Ladies, you took that risk if you had sex without protection. If he didn’t have a condom, you could have opted out, or gotten birth control. It’s not his fault that you didn’t take the due diligence to protect yourself.
91. Get STD tested. Regularly. Without having to be asked.
That goes both ways. As someone who had to get tested because someone I was intimate with didn’t tell me about their sexual history (I am clean, thank Groj!), this is such a blatant double-standard.
92. Examine your opinion on abortion. Then put it in a box. Because, honestly, it’s completely irrelevant.
Already pro-choice. Whatever.
93. Understand that disabled women are whole, sexual human beings. Listen to and respect them.
Wait…what? I’m not even sure what this is talking about.
94. Understand that not all women have periods or vaginas.
Understand that if I am getting intimate with someone who identifies as a woman, and they have a dick, I’m not going to be attracted to them anymore. That’s life. Don’t like dicks on my women.
95. Believe women’s pain. Periods hurt. Endometriosis is real. Polycystic ovaries, vaginal pain, cystitis. These things are real. Hysteria isn’t.
Believe men’s pain. Smashing your balls between your legs hurts. A lot. Not that you care. Because you’re a bitch.
96. If a woman accidentally bleeds on you, try your absolute best to just keep your shit together.
I’ll be more annoyed about stains on my clothes than anything. Blood don’t come out easy.
97. Lobby your elected officials to implement high quality sex education in schools.
Wow. Something on this list that I agree with 100%. Holy shit! This is weird.
98. Uplift young Black and Indigenous girls at every possible opportunity. No excuses.
If they’ve earned it, sure. If they haven’t, no. And haven’t we talked about this already?
99. Do not ever assume you know what it’s like.
What what’s like?
100. Mainly, just listen to women. Listen to us and believe us. It’s the only place to start if you actually want all women to have a “Happy International Women’s Day.”
I don’t “listen and believe” anyone. I don’t accept articles of faith. I left the church for a reason. Not looking to set up shop at yours
I am NEVER doing anything like this again. There’s another list for people of color (I hate that term so much. It’s an “of” and “ed” away from colored people), and I am not touching that with a ten foot pole. This is so annoying. I’m done.
Until next time, a quote,
