QotD: “they will sit quietly and listen to us, then take our words, our fears, our pain, and use it against us, manipulate us, and break us”
I have completely lost count of how many rapists & abusers have been outed on tumblr who have used social justice or feminism to get access to their victims. I really need people to stop denying the fact that men will do whatever it takes to gain access to women’s spaces, like running blogs calling out rape apology, teaching women’s studies classes, writing books on feminism, ect, in order to abuse women. Men who feel threatened by feminism will often express their anger towards feminists, whether by sending anon hate, threatening messages, calling you slurs, harassment, ect, however some men will take it further. There are men who will spend all their waking hours trying not only to put women “back in their place” but also remind women that we are never safe, we must always live in fear, because these men will find ways to get in to our safe spaces, they will sit quietly and listen to us, then take our words, our fears, our pain, and use it against us, manipulate us, and break us.
