"There are times in all of our lives when we’re either given an opportunity or we see one that we could seize. And we get nervous. We worry. We’re not ready to dare anything. But I hope you will. Women have to dare to compete."

new video up babes!  WHY I’M A….FEMINIST *gasp!!* *shock!!!1* *horror!!!!*

i know, i know.  gender equality is a terrifying thing here on the interwebs.  here are just a few (err…60) of the reasons i’m a feminist.

are you?

 
I am a feminist because I want to be able to work for a doctoral degree and not worry about emasculating who ever I decide to date in the future. I’m sick to death of being called a bitch or arrogant simply because I dare to have a voice. I’m tired of walking down the street to the grocery store wondering if some guy will try to take into his car and rape me because I dare to wear shorts and have a butt, or dare to wear anything when I have DDD/F cups. I’m a feminist because seriously, I like having sex. A lot. And I don’t want to be called a slut. I’m a feminist because I wanted to be paid for my work as much as a man. 

I’m a feminist because ‘bad bitch’ is a compliment, and just the use of the term bitch is considered a good thing to say. I’m a feminist because I really really really don’t get the idea of having to shave every part of my body. I shave my legs sometimes and my underarms sometimes. I’m a human not a dolphin, people. 

I’m a feminist because I don’t want to worry being a bitch when my friend gets sexually harassed and I call up her harasser and threaten to call the police if he touches her inappropriately. I’m a feminist because I shouldn’t be scared of being groped or people looking up my skirt at comic conventions. I can look at cute as I want, and I’d think it’d be beautiful if I didn’t punished for it. I’m a feminist because I don’t want people to continue asking ‘So what is it like being a woman in comics?’. It’s like being a man or a person.

I’m a feminist because my mother’s response to me being made fun by boys was ‘Maybe if you took care of yourself they wouldn’t laugh at you’, and thus caused me to have horrible body issues during high school.

I’m a feminist because it’s pro-fairness. And it’s morally right to be one. We don’t oppress anybody, we just want the rights that are deserved to humans in general.

This article is circling around all over tumblr and although it’s 3 years old, I still think it’s a serious issue. 

I think it’s so sad that the less a woman makes the more threatening she is. The more she make to more she looks like a target and can be “touched” and made fun of. Women shouldn’t have to fear losing their jobs if they object to a man going too far sexually. Women who have worked for years at still reduced down to a piece of meat by some men and thought of as toys. We’re still looked at as objects or like children. Take this from a person who wants to get her doctorate in Psychology by 25.

1 in 7 women (Oxford, 2012) will be harassed in the work place and recieved psychological distress from it (1 in 8 for men, I didn’t forget you), most of those being in public administration jobs. Cubicle work. 

Does that mean I’ll be harassed too? Is all my work for years going to be for nothing because I man thinks it’s okay to oogle my chest and ask for ‘favors’ in exchange for success? This is so unfair. It sucks. and It always sucks, that women being successful makes worth even less than they are now to men and to the public. If I say on to a back rub, am I bitch, or if I say yes am I reduced down to an ‘easy’ girl or a submissive one? 

So what can a person do about sexual harassment? 

Politely decline, if it’s something like asking for a back rub or guys checking out your boobs. But if it’s like slapping your butt and groping you or touching in inappropriate places, or blackmailing you or coercing you to take nudes or sleep with them, call the authorities. It’ll suck to possibly lose your job for it and this is why. 

Not always, but in a number of cases, sexual harassment behaviors can lead rape, and I don’t need to explain the mental damage that comes from it, if your one of the 1 in six women or who survive it

NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK  FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY

This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.
