"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”

(Thanks for answering my AoU question btw but I got one more oops sorry) Could you see anyone else in Hall H that looked like they may have been recording it?

I def was not paying attention to anything but the screen. However, there was 7000 people in that room so it’s highly possible that someone got it, but I feel like most of the people there wouldn’t want to post it because they waited literally over 24 hours for the opportunity to see it

if a girl is angry about something and you blame it on her period, you deserve a high five

You’re on your period right?

I am a 17 year old boy

i love how you felt the need to add your age there

Everyone knows that boys don’t get their periods
until they’re 20 at least

I was expecting something bloody but this is so much better
