Men have no idea what it takes to be a woman. To grin and bear it and persevere. The constant state of war, navigating the relentless obstacle course of testosterone and misogyny, where they think we are property to be owned and plowed. But we’re not. We are people, just like them. Equals, in fact, or at least that’s the core of what feminism is still trying to achieve. http://fuckyeahwomenprotesting.tumblr.com/post/160956931985/it-was-easier-to-give-in-than-keep-running
Stephen Fry's message is so true. People that are homosexual are not trying to make others homosexual. What they want is to be accepted, just like everyone else. However, most homophobes on the other hand are trying to place their negative and unfair beliefs on others to make them also homophobic. Which is demeaning and inconsiderate.
I understand what they are trying to say and yet I can't help but disagree slightly. Yes, everyone should be accepting of different people, but treating those who were 'raised that way' as stupid is a little silly. It's true that you can get over supporting your parents ideas but it's not that easy, old habits die hard as they say. But, yeah they do die...
women supporting other women is pure and will always be a good thing; men harassing people because they feed off of asserting dominance over people without power will always be trash. http://fuckyeahwomenprotesting.tumblr.com/post/154988671530/radial-glia-slytherinica-relucant#notes
