Just followed WhenWomenRefuse and seriously, this hurts. It’s a kind of agony to scroll through these stories and then return to my facebook newsfeed to see guys insisting “It’s not all of us! Stop generalizing!”
God, it’s not about you! It’s not about any of you! Can’t you just shut up and listen?? It’s the fact that events like the shooting in Santa Barbara are so prevalent, there’s an entire tumblr full of testimonials and news stories. I’m so frustrated and tired and angry and scared and I can’t even yell and scream and cry about it because the minute I show too much emotion — particularly regarding feminism — my entire opinion becomes invalid: I’m just another overemotional girl.
