“What’s the worst possible thing you can call a woman? Don’t hold back, now. You’re probably thinking of words like slut, whore, bitch, cunt (I told you not to hold back!), skank. Okay, now, what are the worst things you can call a guy? Fag, girl, bitch, pussy. I’ve even heard the term “mangina.” Notice anything? The worst thing you can call a girl is a girl. The worst thing you can call a guy is a girl. Being a woman is the ultimate insult. Now tell me that’s not royally fucked up.” via @jessicavalenti Full Frontal Feminism . . . . . . . . . . . In addition, it’s true isn’t it? In Hindi when people want to insult men, I’ve heard them say ‘haath mein chudiyan pehen le’… in other ironies, I’ve seen conversations where people are fighting about women rights, and even then, in order to tell others how wrong they are not to understand feminism, we use ‘madar/bhen’ abuses. I’m yet waiting for the ‘Bhai/Baap/Sasur’ abuses directing towards women. How does one possibly insult a man (though we should avoid insulting people altogether but that’s not the point here) without calling him a woman or relating him to one? PS: I admit to using the former abuses myself ALL the time too. The social conditioning is so strong that it’s the first thing that slips off of the tongue. I wonder why . . . . . . 📸 @pekettepixels #foodforthought #wordporn #beyou #think #girls #feminism
