There’s a paradox in thinking that you’re better than other girls, when your whole reason for feeling that way is because you think your gender is so inherently inferior that you want to dis-identify with being a girl altogether.
More Than Words: Tomboys R Us
THIS whenever some girl brags about being “one of the boys” or says something like “I’m not like other girls, I LOVE [stereotypically masculine thing].” (via giraffodill)
people who comment on posts written by people of color, disabled people, queer people, &etc. discussing or expressing the frustration and pain they feel, saying shit like, “haha, how funny, because you seem to be forgetting that without us you guys wouldn’t have rights :)” legitimately terrify me, because they’re openly relishing the fact that they can be as sadistic as possible to you, gleefully reminding you that no one will care; they are relishing the fact that they can lord over your head that you being seen as human who is due their inherent rights as a person is conditional, and that if you don’t satisfy that, they - as someone who is seen as having a voice, and a life, that matters - will do everything they can to strip every ounce of humanity from your being.
