sometimes it’s worth it to have a conversation about what you did and didn’t like, and to talk about what consent means to YOU.
The first time I remember a man checking me out, I was so young and naive that I didn’t even notice it was happening - my mom did.

Who are these people running around with this constant compulsion to speak their minds to…
Oh, look, it's that guy who uses the comments section of an article about harassment to ask women to teach him how to not harass.

I also think it's worth saying:
I've gotten this notification three times now. Are you doing this on purpose, or are you having a hard time using your mouse?
White feminism is alive and well.
This is my last GT post
How fast did you post about getting shot down on a dating site on Reddit?
