chloelaureate said: how do I respond when I'm talking about feminist issues and someone tells me "I'd rather care about something more important like child exploitation"?
you just throw up on them
Yup. The “I’d rather care about ___” argument always baffles me, like, wtf you can’t invest yourself emotionally in more than one thing? “Sorry guys, I can’t give a shit about recycling because I already care about deforestation, like, A LOT, soooooo….”
Pro-tip: why not both?
Smart ladies ^^
We would all
Rather be dragons
Than damsels in distress;
So we lick our wounds
That our tears are made of fire.”
It hurts until it doesn’t. You think it’s going to break you, but it won’t. You may not sleep as well at night, but you will be fine. Numb, but numb and fine are the same.”

It is okay to want your own happiness. It’s okay to care about yourself the most. You are not obligated to sit there and smile and swallow every bit of shit everyone heaps on you. You are more than furniture, you’re more than window dressing, you’re not their shiny toy. You’re human, and you have the right to say “That was shitty of you”. You have a right to protest your own mistreatment and set boundaries for respectful interactions. The rest of the world doesn’t realize you have this right, and they will act offended and appalled when you exercise it, but it is yours.”
