True that. Everyone has been taught growing up that a man is to be respected, like your father and your educators, and women are to be seen as the consoling and hindering type. This is a form of feminism, we are to be seen and respected the exact same as men and vice versa.
This comic perfectly represents what rape culture is to me. It's the idea that women can't wear anything without being rudely "catcalled", as people call it, or go out at night for fear of being assaulted. I think cultures that are hugely patriarchal, such as the U.S. and middle eastern countries, and how kids are raised allow this type of culture to continue and suppress feminism.

"Both men and women should feel free to be sensitive. Both men and women should feel free to be strong. It is time that we all perceive gender on a spectrum, instead of two sets of opposing ideals. If we stop defining each other by what we are not, and start defining ourselves by who we are, we can all be freer, and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom." -Emma Watson #HeForShe #feminism #equality #freedom
