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
Do you feel like someone is using the "wrong" bathroom? Please don't: -Stare at them -Challenge them -Insult them -Do not purposefully make them uncomfortable. Instead, please: -Respect their privacy -Respect their identity -Carry on with your day -Protect them from harm They are using the facilities they feel safe in. Please do not take this right away from them. Trans* & gender questioning students... You have every right to be here: -In this facility -In this university -In this world
It cannot be called equality because it is the FEMININE traits that we are ALL shamed for, to the point where femininity is hated. "Boys don't cry/wear pink", "girls must be beautiful/sexually attractive", "be a man/grow some balls". Still don't like it? Go to Men's Rights Activists + do what they do best: complain~
