Anonymous asked: whats your opinion on the #banbossy movement
"banning" words is really stupid because it doesn’t address the problem and comes off as extremely petty and shrill. That said, I agree 100000% with the idea behind it.
You dont hear tumblr womynists talk about this because none of them are old enough to have real jobs, but probably the biggest challenge for women in the workplace is being respected as leaders without being seen as “bitchy.”
Probably the single smartest, most ass-kicking person I have ever worked under was a woman (at Abercrombie) and it was so embarrassing to see guys write her off as a “bitch” or “dumb blonde” when she was acting exactly the same as any guy in her position AND was way smarter than everyone else in the room combined.
Point being, if you care about equality for women (as you should), stop talking about made up shit like “patriarchy” and “oppression” and focus your energy on real stuff like this that genuinely holds women back.
This is pretty bullshit cause I think everyone gets to talk about whatever they want and whatever they feel like holds them back.
You don’t think women on tumblr are old enough to have jobs? Don’t fucking talk down to us.
Sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up about what we are allowed to talk about.
Don’t ever compliment me by insulting other women. That’s not a compliment, it’s a competition none of us agreed to. — (via et-l)
