I /CAN/ REBLOG IT OH MAN OH MAN !!

Let's be real for a moment.

Don't you dare deny the evils of the patriarchy.  Don't you dare spit on all the women on whom our society encourages assault and violation.  Don't you dare blame the victims of these assaults.  Don't you dare try to justify their earning cents on the dollar.  Don't you dare tell them what their role in society is, or what you want them to do, or that they should calm down.  Don't you dare devalue them because they're angry - they have every right to be angry.  And most of all, don't you DARE deny that this oppression exists just because YOU don't suffer it.  If you don't care about oppression unless you're part of the group being actively oppressed, you're a cartoonishly evil villain. 
 
Women are suffering every day and whether you see it or deny it will not change that immutable, hideous fact.  It affects your sisters, your mothers, the strangers on the street.  It affects women, it affects men, and it affects people of non-binary gender like me.  It's not the natural order of things.  It's a system of power and control, and its biggest aid is that it is subconsciously supported. 
 
But we can tear it apart, together.
 
You don't have to be a radical to make a positive impact. Every one of us can fight for what is right, even in small daily ways.  Call out misogynists when they make ###### jokes.  Stand up for women and LGBTQ people.  Make donations to positive organizations.  Don't just shout out when something big happens - this stuff is a constant, daily thing, so pushing back against it needs to happen every day.  This has nothing to do with politics.  This has nothing to do with party lines.  This has nothing to do with being some kind of hero.  It has everything to do with humanity and decency.
 
Be strong.  Be resolute.  Do not stop being angry.  Do not stop talking about this.  Do not focus on gender issues, or sexist issues, or racial issues, or LGBTQ issues, or trans*misogyny issues, just because it's a hot-button thing today.  The marginalizing continues tomorrow.  It will continue until we burn the system to ash.  Stay furious every day that women are hurt.  Stay furious every day.  Stand up.  Fight back.
