Thanks for the support!! At this point I’m just a little disappointed with her response, since she really didnt want to hear what I had to say or honestly talk at all about it. I wasn’t even rude, and I apologized multiple times and tried to move on to the discussion, but each time she seemed to get angrier that I had a different opinion. And it sucks and I know it’s dumb to feel shitty that someone didn’t care what I had to say but I was really polite about it and I really do respect her, and get only animosity in return to legitimate questions and curiosities. Idk I’m just unfoundingly hurt for no good reason. It just sucks, I just wanted to discuss feminism with a self-proclaimed expert on the subject.
thanks for the support! yes, that was exactly what i meant. I understand that i fit this role, and i am okay with it and feel fine. I did not know that it could have been taken so radically out of context!
You also managed to sum up my view on our gender-differenciated society at the same time~!
i recently privately answered someone on the subject so i’ll post the answer here, because it covers your point, which i agree with;
i agree with you completely; just because i subscribe to one way of thinking does not mean i want others to think the same way too. i like hearing others opinions and love discussing things!!
also, your ethnicity and gender should not affect your validity as a person and a voice; it also doesn’t define you whatsoever! my point was that the general population, and humanity as a whole, are comforted when things can be fitted into stereotypes; it has always been like this, and a remnant of this will always remain no matter how progressive we become. just because i believe this and because i am okay with it does not mean i think others should be.
thanks for your input on the subject though!
another sidenote on the subject; NOT EVERYONE HAS THIS LABEL-DEPENDENCY I MENTIONED! i have great respect for individuals who can go out and be themselves without thinking about what particular label they might be categorized by others under, and i would never have it any other way. Thanks to people who push the boundaries of human stereotypes and the publics comfort levels, many people are able to be who they want without feeling pressured or bad about it. this is good and healthy and amazing. I hope this can clear up my position on the subject and thanks for the discussion! :)
what are you trying to accomplish….. sorry for having an opinion?? i mean if you want to discuss things thats fine and i am totally open to hear your opinion as long as you are civil!! but just because i enjoy how i am and don’t fight the stereotypes of being a woman doesn’t mean i believe everyone should be like me… and yeah, i am sure that i am a pathetic human being for not fighting every second of my waking life. just please don’t belittle me for it, and don’t assume i think everyone else should feel the same way. i highly respect people like Rachel who make an effort to fight stereotypes, which is why i wanted to talk to her and hear her views on it, because its inspiring… i didn’t know she would put me down for it, or that people would personally come and insult me.
I love all my followers you are all so lovely
ah thank you for sticking with me!!
A hobo just came up to me with his hands full of little figurines, saying he needed to get bus fare but would sell me the kawaii little men in his hands
A homeless guy said kawaii why is this so FUNNYYY
