    It’s Monday. I’m going home at 6pm and a middle aged man and a teenage boy are the only people left on the bus with me. I consider the fact that because the driver is also a man I am the only person left on the bus with the correct genetic makeup for boobs. I’m automatically scared, scared because of my own anatomy. I wonder how old I was when I realized that my own body was going to be the cause of the constant anxiety and fear I feel in situations like this. I get off at the last stop and the older man smiles at me while following me up the street. His smile drips, drips, drips and my heart is pounding, pounding, pounding. He turns off down another road, but I run the rest of the way home.

    Not all men.

    I’m at home on a Tuesday, beginning to plan the travels I want to go on next year. I dream of wandering the streets and meeting strangers. I just can’t wait to escape the city I’ve lived in for 17 long years. But… my mum is hesitant. She’s forever worried about the danger that being a young girl traveling alone can bring. I’ll be alone and she’s scared. Surely I’m invincible. I feel invincible. But I know, I know this danger is real and I can’t help but think to myself, if I feel unsafe in my own city, how am i going to feel in a strange place with strange men who don’t speak the same language as me? If I was my brother planning this, I would probably just be wondering if European girls are going to be hot.

    Not all men.

    Wednesday is a beautiful sunny day but I’ve always been told that I don’t have a “nice enough body” to wear a bikini on the beach. Ever since I was 6 years old I’ve thought that having tummy fat was ugly. That skin that doesn’t have a perfectly golden glow is undesirable. I amble to a clear patch of sand in my one piece and I can feel pairs of eyes latching onto me. Hairy men in speedos who I don’t look twice at eat into my body with their stares. I’m a piece of meat. I am a piece of meat? I am here for their amusement. Please don’t let me be eaten alive.

    Not all men.

    Thursday night two friends and I are walking to our god damn school dance when we hear “Jesus look at you! You sluts heading to a pole?” These words snarl out of the mouth of a respectably dressed man and we stop in horror. Shivers roll up my back in fear. It’s dark. We are alone. What. Do. We. Do??? One of us pulls the finger back. I can never be sure how quickly a sexist man can get angry so we walk quickly away. We’re angry, so so angry. But also so… deflated. I wonder if we deserve this shame.

    Not all men.

    Sitting on the internet, Friday night and scrolling down my Facebook newsfeed:

    “Haha, good job at the game today bro. You RAPED them!”
    “Damn with tits like that, you’re asking for it :P”

    Another sexist comment…
    Another sexist comment…
    Another sexist comment…

    I’m shrinking and shrinking and shrinking and I want to CRY because these boys don’t realize how small they make me feel with just pressing a few keys. I see these boys on the streets, I talk to these boys, I laugh with these boys. Dear GOD, dear GOD i hope these boys don’t think actions speak louder than words…

    Not all men.

    Three rules that have been drilled into me since I was young run through my mind at 1.30am on a Satur… Sunday Morning:

    -Don’t ever talk to strange men
    -Don’t ever be alone at night in a strange place
    -Don’t ever get into a car with a stranger

    I break all 3 of these laws as I pull open the taxi door. Making light conversation with the driver, he doesn’t see my sweaty hand clutching the small pocket knife I keep hidden on me at all times. He doesn’t even realize the fear I feel at his mere presence. He cannot comprehend it, he never will. How easy would this 15 minute car ride be if I was born a boy?

    Not all men.

    It comes to Sunday, another snoozy, sleepy, Sunday and someone has the AUDACITY to tell me not all men are rapists. I say nothing.

    I’m a 17 year old girl.
    When I am walking alone and it’s dark, it’s all men.
    When I am in a car with a man I don’t know well, it’s all men.
    When men drunkenly leer at me on the streets, it’s all men.
    When a boy won’t leave me alone at a party, it’s all men.

    Not all men are rapists. But for a young girl like me? Every one of them has the potential to be.

    Not.
    All.
    Men.

    They dont have this in America?

    We don’t even have ads against heterosexual rape in America who are you kidding.

    Oh, we have them…. but they’re slut-shaming reminders that if you get raped while you were drinking, it’s kinda your fault. Why didn’t you moderate?

    i am angry

    The thing you hear adults call teenagers the most after ‘lazy’ is angry.
    Why are you so angry?

    The other day I was making a scrapbook for a school assignment and I was reading newspaper articles for it. The first thing I find is an article about the water crisis and global warming and hey, if we don’t do anything then in a couple of years a billion more people will lack access to water!
    The we is my generation.

    A few flicks later the journalist comments on the ‘situation’ in Gaza, links it to Egypt and Libya and Palestine, and I read through the deaths as a crying little girl watches me from the top of the page. ‘The conflict is ongoing, but the UN is hesitant to interfere’, because we all know the situation can only worsen and then ‘we’ can deal with it.

    I drop the newspaper and turn to magazines- after a moment, side to side, lie an article informing women on what is too prudish and what is to slutty and a column about what kind of girls to go for during the holidays.
    Here, there is no ‘we’, because there is no problem in sight.

    On my phone I am assailed by reports from Ferguson, but the shock is not great because I’ve gotten used to the tear gas and images of dead black kids labeled criminals by the people meant to protect them.

    Then there is news on the economic crisis.

    Why am I angry?

    Because if you say wars, women repressed, economic crisis and black people horribly mistreated, I won’t be able to tell if you’re talking about 1930 or 2014, unless you add in pollution and overpopulation.

    I am angry because we are called lazy when we are under more pressure than anyone before us.

    I am angry because we are called materialistic. We don’t want the Lamborghini, we want a job!
    We don’t want a mansion, we want peace- for a day, a week, please!
    We don’t want a giant TV, we want someone to patch up the hole in the ozone layer, or maybe give us some equality, but that someone won’t be the ones who created this mess!

    I am angry because I am 80% disillusioned, 10% worried and 10% hoping for the bright future we were lead to hope for until we realized we were meant to make it happen!

    I am angry because when the world’s problems aren’t ignored, the world is criticized, and no one bothers to think that they have made it this way!

    I am angry because I can say sexism, racism, homophobia, war, disease, pollution, and go on for years, but the older generation will prefer to call us the selfie generation than do anything to fix them!

    I am angry because #yolo is trending without knowing that it’s true because we don’t know if we’ll even have a chance at a future.

    I am angry, yes, because you have messed up this world for us to fix, but I don’t know if we can fix it.

    But yeah, ask me again why I’m angry.

    Stop sexualizing my body stop shaming my body stop policing my body

    BREASTS ARE SEXUAL ORGANS

    BREASTS ARE SEXUAL ORGANS

    BREAST ARE SEXUAL ORGANS

    BREASTS ARE FUCKING SEXUAL ORGANS!!

    WE DONT LET MEN WALK AROUND WITH THEIR DICKS OUT BECAUSE ITS A SEXUAL ORGAN!!

    GET THE FUCK OVER IT YOUR FEMALE BREASTS ARE

    • SEXUAL
    • FUCKING
    • ORGANS!!!

    source: X

    Ahem.

    BREASTS ARE NOT SEXUAL ORGANS YOU INCONSIDERATE DICK!

    Breasts are mammary organs, meaning their true and primary purpose is to nurse babies.

    I’ll repeat that for the slow people in the class, you warthog-faced buffoon.

    Breasts are mammary sacks. They are meant to feed babies, just like a cow’s udder. They aren’t sexual organs. They aren’t classified as such in biology texts (certainly none of the ones I checked out to answer this post)

    Men have breasts, you pile of refuse. Their breasts are smaller than women’s, but they possess the same mammary glands and, properly stimulated, can produce milk. Men can get breast cancer. They can develop larger breasts due to excessive hormones. Their breasts are exactly like a women’s breast, except that since their testicles produce testosterone in high degree, they don’t have enough female hormones in their bodies to start lactating.

    So, you pile of putrescence, you’re probably thinking, “If breasts aren’t sex organs then how come guys get horny looking at them and women get turned on by playing worth them, huh?”

    The answers to both are so terribly simple that you might just be able to follow them if you pay attention, pig.

    Men are enticed by breasts because they’re not allowed to see them. Women are sensitive because stimulation triggers two responses - bonding hormones and lactation.

    In case you’re too simple to get this, I’ll break it down further for you. In cultures where breasts are viewed daily, they don’t do much to get a guy hot and bothered. There are hundreds of paintings from the renaissance period and earlier depicting women nursing babies, especially images of the Blessed Virgin nursing Christ, and none of these have ever been considered provocative, because that’s what boobs are for. Meanwhile, in cultures where everyone from baby sister to great-great grandma walk around topless because the weather will kill them otherwise, dudes don’t get raging erections every time they see a breast. They don’t find boobs enticing the way men do in America, where boobs are considered shameful and need to be hidden.

    As for women getting aroused by their boobs being played with, you brainless donkey, a woman’s body responds to get nipples bring touched by flooding her body with bonding hormones that help her attach to get babies - you know, the people her breasts are actually supposed to be used by - and hormones that get her glands making milk. Also, please note that many women with large breasts don’t feel any stimulation when fondled, meaning they aren’t sensitive enough to get off on having their boobs played with.

    Do me a favor and GET THE FUCK OVER YOURSELF YOU PURITANICAL ASS! My breasts are NOT SEXUAL ORGANS. They are lactation organs designed for my use and my baby’s use. Not for any man’s use or pleasure.

    You inconsiderate space herpe.

    the amount of perfection in that paragraph makes my heart happy.

    I’m a Christian and I support this message.

    i think i’m crying that’s so perfect

    There’s also the fact that the reason Jesus died on the cross was so that Christians no longer had to follow the laws of the Old Testament.

    By denying homosexuals the right to marry because of what it says in Leviticus, you are basically saying that Jesus’ sacrifice WAS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU.

    PREACH.

    Just in case…


    Stay safe, please.  If you are in trouble, or think you might be; if you hear anything strange inside or outside your home please do not hesitate to contact the police. Check your cars through the windows before you get in them. Don’t go anywhere alone. Lock your windows and doors. Before you enter your house, check for signs of forced entry or tampering- this can include scratch or tool marks by locks or on the glass or a loose handle, indicating that the lock has been broken. Retreat to a safe, public, crowded place sit by the counter- this makes it easier for the staff and security cameras to see you. Call the police and notify them, ask to be picked up and then submit a statement. If in doubt, please call the police.

    SERIOUSLY. I LIVE IN NEW JERSEY.
    THANK GOD I WILL STILL BE AWAY THEN.
    BE SAFE.

    in America, black people are being gunned down simply for being alive, gay people can’t get married/can’t get jobs, politicians say women are asking for rape, trans people are being murdered every day, Middle Easterns are suspected to be terrorists, white men are defended for shooting up schools, teenage boys are building bombs to murder family and schoolmates and yet people still have the audacity to say this is the land of the free
