i want a relationship but i want them to be like a friend to me, i dont want the relationship to be all about kissing, making out and sex i just wanna hang out with them, and go places, and just have fun wherever we go

This post is surreal because that is exactly how a healthy relationship should be yet we’re convinced this is a weird and unusual thing to ask of our partners.




Once you first start noticing how often men will interrupt or talk over you if you’re a woman you can’t ever stop like every time i have a conversation with a man or participate in a class discussion i notice it and it’s honestly my biggest irritant

I’ve started to just continue my sentences but LOUDER than him. This startles the man, and then he has to stop for a moment to think about why I did that and that is when you strike. Destroy Him

Many women are reluctant to advocate feminism because they are uncertain about the meaning of the term.Other women from exploited and oppressed ethnic groups dismiss the term because the do not wish to be perceived as supporting a racist movement; feminism is often equated with white women’s rights efforts. Large numbers of women see feminism as synonymous with lesbianism; their homophobia leads them to reject association with any group identified as pro-lesbian. Some women fear the word “feminism” because they shun identification with any political movement, especially one perceived as radical. Of course there are women who do not wish to be associated with women’s rights movements in any form, so they reject and oppose the feminist movement. Most women are more familiar with negative perspectives on “women’s lib” than with the positive significations of feminism. It is this term’s positive political significance and power that we must now struggle to recover and maintain.
