I just feel like people need to be reminded this. You can be funny, smart and cute and you don’t suddenly become that just because someone says you are. You were all that before too.
Rape is the only crime on the books for which arguing that the temptation to commit it was too clear and obvious to resist is treated as a defence. For every other crime, we call that a confession.
I’ve gotten more angry asks about this post than I have actual reblogs.
We live in a world where Sam Pepper can sexually assault women, document it and receive a lot of support from people calling it a ‘harmless prank’, and Emma Watson can stand up for equal rights for women and have her nude photos leaked over the Internet.

"The trend of labeling women “crazy” is part of the culture that socializes women to go along to get along. When women are told over and over again that they’re not allowed to feel the way they feel and that they’re being “unreasonable” or “oversensitive”, they’re conditioned to not trust their own emotions. Their behavior – being assertive, even demanding or standing up for how they feel – becomes an “inconvenience” to men and they’re taught not to give offense and to consider the feelings of others before their own."- On Labeling Women “Crazy” | Paging Dr. NerdLove - Part 2 (via thelostdeer)

If you are a man who thinks it’s funny to make misogynist jokes purely to make your female friends uncomfortable/angry, then you are a misogynist. It is not “just a joke.” You literally are finding humor in the discomfort and dehumanization of women. You are not helping, you are not making satire. You are just being misogynist.
Yes, this includes you gay men.
