Last year I saw blog posts that pointed some things out that I will repeat here. I also think they are stupid.
"Don’t walk home alone. Learn self-defence. Mind your drink. Don’t get drunk. It’s for your safety. Subtext: not getting raped, not getting murdered – that’s your responsibility".
It is actually, and women who keep denying these things need to pull their heads out.
Why is taking responsibility for your own health and safety such an issue for some women?
Why do you all want to make it an "excuse" and not a personal rule?
Why do you all rally against it and believe it's a "man" thing to just control you and shame you?
If you don't understand that YOUR safety is YOUR responsibility and have never listened to the cops tell us ways of protecting ourselves, like watching our drinks, never walking through dark parks and alleys just because it's quicker, parking under or near lights, then YOU have seriously stupid ideas about who is going to protect you if something happens.
CHOOSING to go home with a guy you don't know is YOUR CHOICE. CHOOSING to drink until your drunk is YOUR CHOICE, being stupid enough to think men can control themselves is YOUR CHOICE.
Never mind the fact that when you get drunk your risk of anything is higher. Stumbling down a flight of stairs and breaking a leg. Stumbling off a gutter and smashing your head on the ground. Stumbling onto the road and being hit by a car.
And do you really want pictures of you spewing your guts up in the gutter with your hair in your face and your dress or skirt over your head on social media?
What will it take for you to look after yourself? Embarrassment? Bodily harm? Death?
"At the end of the day, hiding behind the safety excuse is not going to fly. What it says is, if you get hacked to pieces by a serial killer, it is your fault for going home with him. It’s not the serial killers fault. You provoked him. If you get raped when wearing clothes that can subjectively be called provocative, well you were really just asking for it, so stop lying, you big liar. Don’t you know that men are unable to stop themselves?"
STOP BEING BLOODY STUPID!
"I find this idea that men have no control over their sexual desire really offensive. Like all men feel entitled to use the female body for whatever end, regardless of consent. I call bullshit on that one. Sure, men AND women need more education about consent and healthy relationships. But we are all human beings with the capacity to engage in self-control and a behaviour I like to call not murdering"
Again STOP BEING BLOODY STUPID.
Women are in such denial about the world and believing that men will never take advantage is a very stupid thing to think. Just because you may have great guys in your life does not mean there are not millions more who will take advantage and do what they want when they want to women.
You only have to look at Egypt and India for a start. Arseholes like that CHOOSE to NOT control themselves, they see it as a way of life because women are nothing to them. Women are kicking bags, dirt under their feet, objects to fuck and rape at their own leisure and God help them if they fight and complain because the police and government rape them all over again.
And you certainly can't use the "what I was wearing" excuse in those countries because so many are covered head to toe and clearly the males don't give a fuck what you are wearing even though they bang on about it in their religion.
Yeah, women need to give up all responsibility to men because it's the "man's" problem that they are violated. *rolls eyes in sarcasm*
Women, especially young women, need to wake up to themselves and the world and understand THEIR safety is THEIR business and responsibility, and stop giving it up to someone else to save them. You need to save and protect yourself because no one else will.
I am really sick and tired of females banging on this drum. You all sound so stupid and uneducated when you claim no responsibility for your own health and safety and want to lay it all back on men. The consequences of OUR actions are OURS alone. You CHOOSE to do what you do, YOU suffer the consequences. It's your own CHOICE, it's your own fault. Period!
The old "for every action is a reaction", "for every choice there is a consequence" is actually true. Whatever choice you make, be it right or wrong, has a consequence and a reaction, be it right or wrong. That's the way the world works, deal with it.
Men are responsible for THEIR actions, just as you are responsible for yours.
That's life, deal with it!
I am so fed up to the eyeballs with excuses women come up with. You all need to grow up and take a damn good look at life because it sucks shit and is not fair. Life is not fair, life is not nice, so grow a brain and get a damn good grip of your own responsibilities and be mature for once.
I'm a women who's had a gutful of stupid women. I'm a woman who takes responsibility for my health and safety. I'm a women who feels like punching quite a few women in the head for being so stupid. I'm a woman who is so sick and tired of the excuses women use to not stand up and take responsibility for their own actions and choices.
I am OVER stupid people.
