Stop Saying "I Have a Boyfriend" To Deflect Unwanted Attention

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

"Why I don't describe myself as an 'equalist', or some other term that dismisses the unique set of challenges women face in gaining equal ground. Only feminism acknowledges the centuries, the millenia, of disadvantage and oppression we've been subject to."
