We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.

No skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry

The whole article sadly hits very close to home.

the white house released this video on sexual assault that actually targets men, telling them not to rape, rather than telling women not to be raped. please watch this.

New website, CodeBabes.com, features computer code “tutorials”starring hypersexualized women. Their tagline is “We’re hot, but learning to code is even hotter!,” and every video title has the word “virgin” in it.

This stuff harms women in STEM fields so much, including girls and young women wanting to get into STEM fields.
In my freshman year of high school, I took a tech/engineering class that was supposed to help me with coding (I want to be a web developer/designer). I ended up being the only girl in the class (the two others dropped out after the first class). The boys in the class harassed me, made sexual jokes about me constantly, threatened me, and even made rape threats/jokes about me in class. One time, I asked for help from the teacher on an assignment and, while he was helping me, one of the students said the teacher was going to rape me (the teacher said nothing to them).
I was freakin’ scared; I went to my school counselor asking her to do something. I was told to get over it. No one in the school did anything, I was told this was expected (the ol’ “boys will be boys”), so I never told my parents and kept silent from then on. I stuck through the class and managed a B, but I can’t even begin to imagine what other women (especially young girls) go through pursuing this and other STEM fields. I was lucky enough to have a supporting family, my mom and dad gave me enough money to take online courses with Women’s Coding Collective. I finally found an accepting community. I’m in college continuing to pursue web development. Many other young women aren’t as lucky. Stop isolating, marginalizing, and pushing women and girls away from STEM fields.

you ever thought that maybe the reason girls say they’re fine when they’re not, or they’re not mad when they are, is because the second they show any semblance of emotion they’re written off as hysterical bitches that are probably on their period?

Lustrous.

A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”

I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”

I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”

…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.
