DESTROY THE MYTH THAT TEENAGE GIRLS WHO IDENTIFY AS BISEXUAL ARE DOING IT FOR ATTENTION

Oh, but so many of them are…

That’s not the point. The point is that it’s become unsafe and uncomfortable for teenage girls to be themselves without being told that they aren’t good enough or authentic enough. The entire population of bisexuals are under scrutiny because everyone perpetuated the idea that teenage girls are identifying as bisexual for attention. Why aren’t people allowed to simply say what they are without being shot down for it? If someone says they are bisexual, no one has any business disputing it other than themself.

when my dad was in college he had a friend who told a girl he’d take her on a date unlike any other she’d ever been on and so he took her to the supermarket to watch the lobsters fighting in the lobster tank

they’re married now

a lot of ~feminist~ analyses seem to go for a “but it’s not like that for men!!!!” and like… end there, without interrogating why things are different, which i think is what leads to the really weird “just stop doing the thing! be strong!” school of feminism. like that commercial that’s like “women, stop apologizing for things that aren’t your fault! men don’t do that! just stop and everything will be better!” but like. there’s. a reason women over-apologizing is a thing and it’s because actions have different consequences for different people and you haven’t solved that at all by trying to eliminate the difference in actions. a lot of the symptoms of “double standards” (which isn’t a phrase i like at all for like, at least twelve reasons) are just that—they’re symptoms, they’re coping mechanisms. don’t make people feel bad about the way they try to navigate an unfair world while doing literally nothing to make that world better.
