Not when you are laying around the house, not when you go to the grocery store, not when you sit in a classroom, not when you go to the gym. You are never obligated to get dressed up just so you are pretty for others.
Pretty is not the rent you pay to exist in the world as a woman.
I didn’t know this was exclusive to women
Thank you for your contribution to this post.
I cannot get over the arrogance of straight white boys that they think they can wander into neighbourhoods largely populated by black and brown people and laugh at their expense, and face no repercussions?
Make a “joke” about date raping a woman?
Make racist “jokes” of black people to black people?
"Joke" by pretending to syphon petrol off of people?
They do it because they want to get a reaction. Because the reaction of the black and brown people they’re harassing might fit a stereotype they’re so desperate to fill.
If you came up to me and told me a sexist joke, or a homophobic joke, or pretended to date rape someone, or stole petrol from my car that I had bought with my own money I would kick your sorry arse from here to the next life. Of COURSE these people are angry. OF COURSE they’ll lash out. Hoe fucking dare they use their pain and anger as entertainment? Fucking scum.
Can everyone stop fucking encouraging them to harass marginalised groups, please. Those people have enough to deal with without adding white cishet dudebros and their shit “pranks” to the list. It’s cruel, it’s tacky and most importantly it’s totally fucking racist.
"Reverse racism is real! When I go into those neighborhoods, I feel like I’m in hostile territory!”
Yeah, and it’s hostile territory that YOU created, asshat.
