Holy fucking shit it is so frustrating that people in my family cant take me fucking serious for one god damn minute
Its either they think I’m joking or they just dont value my input on anything, and the fact that they can say the most ignorant, racist, and/or insensitive bullshit and when I bring it up or call them out on it they just say things like, “oh well we dont actually believe that”
THEN WHY FUCKING SAY IT AT ALL HOLY SHIT NO WONDER I FUCKING LIVE IN A DIFFERENT TOWN MY GOD
I mean of course it’s not Link
Doesn’t have the amazing eyebrow game goin on, you feel me
you feel me
i’m holding out for a hero
Jezebel article + comment from a pokemon enthusiast
Reblogging because I love the idea behind this, and I like the pokemon analogy—it’s funny—but also because “wouldn’t you rather date a Charizard than a Charmander” bugs the shit out of me :I
like, I got my first—and current—boyfriend when I was nineteen. Gettin’ personal here. We have a pretty good sex life, and did pretty much right off the bat. But up until then, I felt pretty worthless and would have anxiety attacks over people talking about virgins like they weren’t worth anything. I’ve been in the presence of guys who have actually referred to virgins as damaged goods. I’ve had a guy waffle over his interest in me because he didn’t know, and I quote, how to “handle a virgin”. (intensely creepy for me, btw.) Constant taunting/dismissal from some less-than-pleasant friends about my lack of experience. There are more examples, but I can’t think of them off the top of my head. I felt like a loser who nobody would ever touch.
And it’s never ‘sleep with a virgin’. It’s always ‘date a virgin’. Not only are these people counting you out as a sexual partner, they’re counting you out as a partner, period.
It goes without saying, slut-shaming is a big thing. And it makes me so fucking mad. It has made me mad to the point of tears before. And, in the end, slut-shaming is much more prevalent than virgin-shaming. I really like and support this message. Especially the first half! …Really the only problem I have is with That One Sentence! Just. Yeah. Sometimes it feels like neither side can come out of the patriarchy unscathed.
(because they can’t.)
(that’s the thing.)
(p.s. sorry for this unnecessarily long message.)
“Sometimes it feels like neither side can come out of the patriarchy unscathed.”
Cause, y’know, male virgins aren’t shit on by every corner of the world for still being virgins if they’re over 17.
It’s all an attack on women.
