The idea that a woman should only be left alone if she is “taken” or "spoken for" completely removes the level of respect that should be expected toward that woman and completely removes her ability to speak for herself and make her own decisions regarding when and where the conversation begins or ends. #mediawelike
I can be ridiculously excited about things, usually followed by some embarassment because I should stop being so excited and just act like a normal grownup. But to hell with that: if I'm happy, I want to show it :D
I've always been proud to say I'm a feminist from a very early age. From about 10 years old I learned the horrendous double standards that exist for boys and girls. I've argued with my mother about the word and why I choose it over the homogenized word word she chooses "humanist". I'll never betray the women that have come before me or the women and girls still fighting. I'm a FEMINIST and I'm fucking proud as fuck.
