I think we still live in a culture that assumes that men are single by choice and women are single because no one wants them.

i have never read anything more blatantly written by a man before
Beyonce using white skinhead MEN as props in her Flawless video lifting up herself and claiming her greatness, while interloped with an AWESOME Ted Talk from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie on feminism and women having to pick apart themselves to just exist. You cannot sit down and say that she doesn’t fucking know man, she KNOWS.
That’s some subversive shit.
straight boys think girls can’t take compliments, and that’s ridiculous cause i’ve seen so many girls compliment each other, i’ve seen conversations & friendships blossom from girls complimenting each other in line, on the street, at school waiting for the bus, pretty much anywhere.
the problem is straight boys think sexual harassment & assault are compliments.
