I need feminism because growing up I heard a lot about "safety" and "modesty" but nothing about consent. [click on this image for a brief analysis and remix about rape culture and the recent proliferation of rape jokes on prime time television]
I need feminism because today I was told I had “no sense of humor” for confronting a group of guys making “jokes” about domestic violence. >>> I confronted the guys behind me for harassing ME. I want to confront them about harassing OTHERS, too. People- it ISN'T FUNNY to joke about that!!
"The argument that "boys will be boys" actually carries the profoundly anti-male implication that we should expect bad behavior from boys and men. The assumption is that they are somehow not capable of acting appropriately, or treating girls and women with respect." -Jackson Katz #feminism
