Slut shaming at its finest:
 






"

All I ever witness is straight men showing me how miserable they are with the expectations placed on them as men, how much they hate trying to live up to this impossible standard and how unhappy they still are if they manage to succeed. They have a hard time acknowledging there are other modes of being because they are fucking terrified to deviate from the known, even though the known is horrible and hurts them.

‘Masculinity’ is as damaging to men as ‘Femininity’ is to women. Neither is something to aspire to. Women who understand this are called feminists.

"It is [similarly] unfair to ask a woman to leave aside her personal experience and discuss feminist issues in the abstract. You are discussing the stuff of her life. Asking her to “not make it personal”; is to ask her to wrench her womanhood from her personhood."

Melissa McEwan @ Shakesville

"In my first book, Full Frontal Feminism, I opened by asking readers what the worst thing you could call a woman is (slut, bitch, whore, cunt), then what the worst thing you can call a man is (pussy, fag, sissy, girl). In both cases, the answers were some variation of ‘woman’."
