When I say I’m a feminist, I get the eye roll and the “Ohhhhh, great”
When any of my male friends say they are feminists they get “Wow! It’s great that you’re standing up for women’s rights!”
reblogging for the fucking truth.
it’s like this with other things, too. I’ve been on the opposite side too, sticking up for the rights of others on different topics, somehow I’m more legit than they are, and it pisses me off. how the fuck will anyone get anywhere this way?
people don’t get what privilege is? this is! now you understand.
