You know why women often say “nothing’s wrong” when something is definitely bothering them
It’s because men have been belittling, minimizing and mocking our emotions forever
And we are socialized to be as passive and undemanding and selfless as possible, and not to run any risk of bothering or angering a man lest he abandon or hurt us
It’s not passive aggression, it is fear
oh my god
once you get this you have to say 5 nice things about yourself publicly, and then send it to ten of your favourite followers
- I like how I am generally energetic and a bit whimsical
- I like my ability to remember where a stonefly larva’s gills are, and the origin of Samoyed dog breeds, and the history of the northernmost civilian settlement in canada, and what Edward Cullen’s full name is. ( I did once turn around on a bus to explain X-linked recessive inheritance to the people sitting behind me.)
- I like my appendectomy scar. Even though I was really shy about it as a little kid, it’s a part of me, and I like how the way it’s changed shape over the years shows how much I’ve grown since then.
- I like my sense of colour
- I like how I can hyperfocus on things whenI need to.

Step 1: Comment on a woman’s attractiveness on every single occasion in every single venue no matter how irrelevant it is. Build up a dating culture entirely dependent on a female’s beauty. Teach children that only attractive women will ever get anywhere in life, will ever be praised, will ever find love and have a family, will ever have a chance at happiness, are worth knowing, are worth being.
Step 2: Mock women for caring about how they look. Call them shallow.
