Half of the women I spoke to said , would he admit that’s he’s bit of a sexist, misogynistic — he sees women only in sexual terms?  (x)

This is it, this is how I’m going to explain privilege to the next one.

THOSE LAST TWO GIF THOUGH. MALE FEMINISTS, PLEASE TAKE NOTE. I KNOW YOU DON’T WANNA BE SEXIST BUT PLEASE LISTEN TO WOMEN IF THEY TRY TO EXPLAIN HOW SOMETHING YOU SAID/DID IS PROBLEMATIC AND TAKE IT TO HEART, THANK YOU!

I agree with him. If you think I’m being sexist, let me know and I’ll work on it. I won’t get mad, promise.

honestly this mindset works for any kind of privilege - if someone from an oppressed group calls you out, don’t argue. Fix it.

Practice By Using the Following Phrases When the Opportunity Arrises:

"I’m not interested."

"(Please) Leave me alone."

"I’d rather you not."

"That doesn’t interest me at all."

"You need to stop."

"No."

"That’s not what I said."

"I don’t…

This is so important.

And PLEASE support other women who exercise such assertive phrases. DON’T let anyone call someone else a “bitch” in your presence. It doesn’t matter if you don’t even like that other woman…affirm her right to say things clearly and assertively! It’s not rude to be firm.

There’s no point to a guy yelling, “Hey sexy baby” at me out of the passenger window of a car as it speeds past. Even if I was into creepy misogynists and wanted to give him my number, I couldn’t. The car didn’t even slow down. But that’s okay, because he wasn’t actually hitting on me. The point wasn’t to proposition me or chat me up. The only point was to remind me, and all women, that our bodies are his to stare at, assess, comment on, even touch. “Hey sexy baby” is the first part of a sentence that finishes, “this is your daily message from the patriarchy, reminding you that your body is public property”.

Let’s not forget this also happens to folx that aren’t women, but who are perceived to be women
