might reblog this once a week until i get around to putting it on my wall
the weekly reminder
i have this friend who is so good in his heart, but so conditioned by this sexist society that he carries a LOT of internalised misogyny. we’ve engaged in a number of discussions regarding feminism, and each time i end up feeling like i’m beating my head against a concrete wall. the other night, while we were talking about the imbalances and disadvantages that women encounter, he pulled out a “men have disadvantages too!”
it was at this point that i got really, really, heavily exhausted, and told him i would rather just not talk about this stuff anymore tonight. he asked me, “what do you want? what do you, as a woman, actually want? what do you specifically want to change?” i couldn’t bring myself to speak another word on the matter, so i told him i’d organise my thoughts and write him a letter. now i find myself trying to compose this thing and i am just so overwhelmed by the sheer volume of experience and information that i want to impart, that i don’t even know where to start. i think he wants to learn, but I am too tired to teach.
does anyone want to help? throw me some thoughts/ideas/sentences.
ok i love you bye.
