TW: Talk of rape culture
Let’s take a moment to talk about this. I mean, because first off, “Tell cars not to hit kids.” Well, yeah, we do that all the fucking time, idiot. Ever seen signs like these?
We have classes and signs and laws about it, and people are constantly reminded. So your argument only works if we put up signs everywhere reminding assholes not to rape. But you’d rather talk about how rape victims have it coming to them.
But the dumbest part of this crap? Roads exist for cars to drive on. Children need to be careful to cross the street because they’re entering into an environment that exists specifically for something that is dangerous to them. The only way this shit is a valid comparison is if you think that bars, parties, and the world in general exists specifically for men to have sex with women. And I gotta break it to the guys who support this stupidity- your dicks are not that important. So knock off this bullshit and stop excusing rapists.
women smh. they like different things and have different interests. why do some women like a thing and other women not like it? so difficult to understand. so confusing and hypocritical when one woman says one thing and another woman says another thing that disagrees. almost as if women are not a hivemind but are human beings just like men. ugh
why is it so hard to get how awful you are when you refuse to apologize?
YOU DIDN’T MEAN TO HIT SOMEONE WITH A CAR DOESN’T MEAN YOU CAN’T GO TO JAIL FOR MANSLAUGHTER
If you accidentally step on some one’s toes, you apologize. It’s just common sense - you obviously didn’t stomp on their toes on purpose, but you HURT THEM regardless. The same courtesy should be there when you accidentally hurt some one emotionally, too. You didn’t mean to, but that doesn’t change what happened. Apologize sincerely, make an effort to never do it again, and do NOT continue to sit there repeating “but I didn’t mean to” over and over again. They know that, but their toes still fucking hurt.
Intent is not magical.

Ambition is demanded of us because we know mediocrity is not an option. When society tells women that if we are just averagely good-looking, or averagely smart, or reasonably high-achieving, we will never be loved and safe, perfectionism is an adaptive strategy. We learn that if we want love and security, we have to be perfect, and if it doesn’t work out, well, that means we just weren’t good enough. And we know it probably won’t work out well. Girls aren’t fools. They know what is being done to them. They know what means for their futures in terms of money and power.
Girls get it. An under-reported, crucial facet of the study is the extent and cynicism of girls’ concerns about economic equality and unpaid work. A full 65% of girls aged 11-21 are worried about the cost of childcare, and while 58% say they “would like to become a leader in their chosen profession, 46% of them worry that having children will negatively affect their career.
Girls know perfectly well that structural sexism means they can’t have everything they’re being told they must have. They are striving to have it all everyway, striving to have everything and be everything like good girls are supposed to, and it hasn’t broken them yet, for good or ill. That’s is one reason young women still do so well in school and at college despite our good grades not translating to real-world success. It’s one reason we’re so good at getting those entry-level service jobs: we are not burdened by the excess of ego, the desire to be treated like a human being first, that prevents many young men from engaging proactively with an economy that just wants self-effacing drones trained to smile till it hurts.
The press just loves to act concerned about half-naked young ladies, preferably with illustrations to facilitate the concern. Somehow nothing changes. And maybe that’s the point. Maybe part of the function of the constant stream of news about young girls hurting and hating themselves isn’t to raise awareness. Maybe part of it is designed to be reassuring.
It must be comforting, if you’re invested in the status quo, to hear that young women are punished and made miserable when they misbehave.
I’ve said this before, but I’ll repeat it: for all those knuckle-clutching articles about how girls everywhere are about to pirouette into twerking, puking, self-hating whorishness, we do not actually care about young women - not, that is, about female people who happen to be young. Instead, we care about Young Women (TM), fantasy Young Women as a semiotic skip for all our cultural anxieties. We value girls as commodities without paying them the respect that both their youth and their personhood deserves. Being fifteen is fucked up enough already without having the expectations, moral neuroses and guilty lusts of an entire culture projected onto this perfect empty shell you’re somehow supposed to be. Hollow yourself out and starve yourself down until you can swallow the shame of the world.
We care about young women as symbols, not as people.

Books, y’all. Stop making excuses now.
I’m not sure the site is strictly legal. Their page on legality puts the onus in the copyright holder to claim they’re violating copyright. Several of the titles listed here are taken down, but I don’t know if the ones not taken down haven’t been noticed by the publishers yet, or what.
Be wary of free recent books. Books outside their copyright are one thing, but chances are good there’s piracy involved if they’re more recent.
