"

This is what you should be teaching your sons:
Teach them that a woman’s body is not property.
It is not a house for sale.
It is not a piece of land
that gets sold to the highest bidder,
or the first man that can sweet talk them into consent.

She has thorny roses
falling out of her mouth as she speaks.
She does not have poems written on her breasts.
She has hurricanes in the back of her throat.
She has snowstorms in her brain.
Those are what you should be paying attention to.

Teach them
that the the size of a woman’s
body parts do not dictate her worth.
Each woman is a map and
if you dismiss her
because she has plateaus
where another woman has mountains,
and mountains where another woman has valleys,
then you will be missing out
on an awfully big adventure.

Teach them that you cannot expect
a woman to accept your insecurities,
if you do not accept hers.

Teach them that pressuring a woman to consent is not consent.
Teach them that “I love you’s” are not consent.
Teach them that a relationship, a marriage,
their clothing, their flirting,
is not consent.
Teach them that being too high,
too drunk,
or too unconscious
is not consent.

Teach them that even though virginity
is a construct of the patriarchy,
for a woman to trust someone
with her naked body for the first time,
is still frightening.

Teach them that she will want to turn the lights
off and hide under the covers as soon as you undress her.
Teach your sons’ mouths to say the phrase “You’re beautiful”
with the lights on, her naked body fully visible.

Teach your sons that sex is always optional.
Teach your sons that it is possible to have a relationship without sex.
Teach your sons that they can love whoever they want
that loving another boy, or loving someone who has no gender,
is not a sin.
Teach your sons that they do not have to label
their sexuality, or gender, if they prefer not to.
Teach your sons that it’s okay if they don’t fit
into society’s boxes.

Teach your sons that the “friend zone”
does not exist.
Teach your sons that even though
nice guys finish last,
it’s okay because they sleep better at night.

Teach your sons how to be kind
without expecting anything in exchange.

Teach your sons that women of color are not their sex objects.
Teach your son that it is wrong to be attracted to a woman
simply because of her skin color.

Teach your sons that there is never any justification
for calling a woman a “slut” or a “whore”.
Teach your sons that the proper word
for an independent woman is “strong”
and not “bitch”.

Teach your son that a woman does not dress to please him.
Teach your sons that women do not exist to please them.

This is a response to Andrea Gibson’s poem "Blue Blanket". In the last line she asks, “Tonight
She’s not asking 
what you’re gonna tell your daughter, 
She’s asking what
you’re going to teach 
your son”

wow
How did they get away with that
AH
I LOVE THIS


What do you mean how did they get away with it?
History isn’t one straight line progressing towards a liberal society.
Look how much Americans attitudes have changed between 1980 and today. 1980 was the first time most very religious people voted, they abstained before that at the behest of their churches. Now they dictate policy at every election.
In my family photo album there are pictures from the 20s of a woman called ‘uncle bob’. She dressed in men’s clothing, and had a ‘companion’. This was a rough industrial town, they were working class, nobody cared. It was her business.
This is why politics is important - the moment you think everything is better today than it was in the past, you let other people take control of the direction society goes in - with you sitting back presuming we’re going forwards.



Okay but this isn’t a real picture… It’s photoshopped by Eves-Rib on deviantart, who has done plenty of gender swapping photoshops. Come on, people.

My vlog on why the idea that “Girls don’t like me because I’m a nice guy” is a terrible and dangerous thing.

I know from personal experience.

Please spread this around, I’d like as many people to see as possible.

And comment here or on the page, I want to know what you think.

This. This is a self-confessed “nice guy” breaking down why the entitlement attitude is so very unhealthy. Check it out.

I made this videos about 8 months ago.

I used to consider myself a “friend zoned guy” that never got the girl because I was “too nice” and she “likes assholes” and I was wrong.

This is me admitting up to who I was and how I learned better.

You are such a babe inside and out.

THIS. This is why I hate the “friend-zone” excuse.
