28. Now this, this is fantastic.

I can even manage to feel sorry for the men who empathize with Elliot, because Iím sure that recognizing that part of yourself is difficult and frightening.


I cannot and will not feel sorry for them. They need to grow the fuck up already. Feminists have been begging men to stop treating us like sex objects for fucking decades. Their precious fee fees rate somewhere below a homophobe's thoughts on human sexuality on my importance meter.


Right now my priority is talking about all of the ways that women are dehumanized in our culture, and the ways that dehumanization affects us every day. I want to talk about how our culture teaches men to dominate women, and tells them that violence is the way to do this.


Sexual objectification in general, prostitution and pornography all blatantly portray women as things to be used. Even most people who know how these issues contribute to these problems mostly tiptoe around it, because society is so fucking in love with objectification and porn. Enough dancing around it.
