calling a man a “pig” is literally dehumanising how do some people not think there’s anything wrong with that how
Because chicks, fillies, birds and bitches never get dehumanised. Those vixens always get away with this kind of shit. Especially the heifers, they’re the worst. What cows.
i love how i’m now getting messages about “that didn’t actually happen to you! that doesn’t actually happen! stop being such an attention whore!”
i’m going to guess you’re just refusing to acknowledge that yes, that still happens. despite it being 2014, despite us having explored bits of space. despite us being such an advanced society, we still have a large part of the population that discriminates against women
that sucks right? that fucking sucks! that shouldn’t be happening! i totally agree dude, but you gotta realize that its sexism in itself to claim that a girl bringin these issues up is a girl who lies for attention
because i would be a liar if i said that that kind of shit has only happened to me once
in addition to what i’ve been talkin bout, at least three or four times in the span of my eight hour shift, someone will walk in and ask my 90% female crew “if theres a man around they can talk to,” despite the fact that my older female colleagues have had years of experience in plumbing and construction
that when i answer the phones and someone asks me to go find a product and i tell them we don’t carry that particular brand they’ll respond with “sweetie, put a man on, they’ll be able to find it” (we don’t carry the brand you want! im sorry! we’re contracted with a different brand!)
that if someone needs help moving 60 lb bags on concrete and i volunteer, they respond with “oh… wouldn’t you want the lovely gentlemen over there to help me instead?”
that i’ve been told multiple times “aren’t you too pretty to be working in hardware?”
that i literally was interrupted yesterday while telling someone which adhesive is better for attaching vinyl to a wood wall (which really you should be using anchors because you will have to hold that mount up there f o r e v e r and even then the best epoxies aren’t always reliable for stuff like that) to “shh honey, the men are talking”
it’s fucking ridiculous right? that shit shouldn’t be happening!
to be fair, you’re right, i don’t know everything about hardware (or anything in fact! im a young human! im learning!) and i won’t be able to fix everything, or give you advice on everything, and that has nothing to do with the fact that im a girl and everything to do with the fact that up until a year ago the only hardware i was familiar with was the kind i could toss into a sculpture. but, i do know enough to be able to tell you which pipes you should be using for gas over water, or the types of bolts that fit best in a busted wrench (or that your goddamn battery is loose and thats why your drill won’t work)
immediately dismissing what i say because of my gender is wrong no matter how you skew it
so yeah dude, stop going after the people who are speaking up about it, and start focusing on the actual problem here
when McGonagall finds out that Ginny is pregnant, and that the Weasley and Potter bloodlines will converge, she marks on her calender the day the child will turn 11 and that is the day she retires
*99% of black people all agree that something is offensive*
1 black person comes out with their cooning self and says ‘actually you know what I’m black and I don’t find this offensive tbh’
White people: OMG FINALLY SOMEONE SAID IT. YESSSS. SEE YOU GUYS ARE OVERREACTING. WE ALL BLEED RED WE ALL SUFFER EQUALLY. WE ALL BURN IN THE SUN!!!!!!!!
