We need feminism because…women gamers are so often targeted with chauvinist behavior online, well-meaning and respectable men have to become self-conscious of their words and tone so not to be labeled as sexist. Feminism’s true purpose isn’t to alienate individuals; it’s to bring common equality to everyone. While gaming, everyone in the chat call suddenly become stiff and normal upon hearing my female voice. It was only until after someone said, “Just treat her like one of the bro’s” was everyone able to stop being on guard in fear of retaliation.
Women don’t want to hear demeaning comments - no person does. But you don’t need to put on an act either. If you’re not a jerk, you’re not one of the people that feminism stands up against. Instead, you’d stand alongside with us if you just treat us as “one of the bro’s.”
i miss when i was like 12 and it would be the night before a big field trip or something and i couldnt go to sleep because i was so excited. i miss being so into a book that i would stay up past my bed time reading it. everything seems so bland or something idk. i’m only 19 and everything is so tiring. i miss wanting to be awake
this is the realist shit on this website
emotionally manipulative things you should never say to people:
- "i would kill myself without you"
- "everyone leaves me, don’t leave me like they did"
- basically anything that guilts the other person into staying in a relationship with you
