Wakanda isn’t a place but Guyana is, and she sure is making them proud.

This is something I’ve been thinking a lot, especially in relation to my own experiences with assault. We afford so many excuses to the predator’s potential to be traditionally successful rather than reckon with the reality of survivors and victims

Femininity, as a form of expression, is denigrated and devalued on all bodies; no matter an individual’s self-identification.

‘Hire a sex worker’ is not the solution for entitled men. Sex workers are not ‘guaranteed’ either and can revoke consent and choose to not provide services. You all need to stop treating sex workers like waste management.

Inviting someone out to dinner, paying for dinner, hopefully enjoying that person's company *should* be the end of the discussion. Being bitter about no one viewing you as a viable partner, or even fuckable, is on you. The common denominator of all of this fuckery, is you.

The fact that men view paying for dates without "getting" sex in return just proves that they see our basic autonomy as a form of their oppression, and that is so fucking sad. Just say you hate women and go.

Dating can be really fun but it can also be difficult, and for women and femmes, it's often scary because we have centuries of evidence to affirm our fears of you. That entitlement that you feel towards our bodies just because you paid for a dinner, is scary.

Nobody is obligated to fuck you and given how you react when we don't, it's pretty clear that women are making the right decisions to eat their dinner and go.

Why does it never occurs to cis het men that they have the personality of a dry elbow and that $100 dollars for a dinner date isn't going to fix that and make someone wet?

And every time someone says: well he was *just* a kid or teen, I wonder why girls and women aren't also afforded the same thinking. She was young too and it was her autonomy and safety that was threatened.

No, non-white men across the globe benefit from patriarchy and get away with sexually assault non-white women. The power structures change occasionally, like if the victim is white and the r/pist isn't but let's not dismiss the reality lived by Black and brown women.

If only people spent their time and energy on making sure that the victims/survivors of sexual assault and patriarchal violence were given the same amount of humanity and compassion.

This is what we mean when we say that oppressions are systemic and that people maintain systems of oppression. This is what we mean by r/pe culture.

Even more annoying: Kavanaugh is openly misogynistic. From his opinions to his professional decisions, it is clear that he weaponizes his hatred for girls and women. You cannot separate sexual assault from his stance as a judge and his perspectives of women.

People will bend over backwards trying to find ways in which they can paint rapists as simply misguided in a moment of poor judgement as opposed to violent, entitled people who give 0 fucks about their victim's autonomy.
