Xenophobic America, you may sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up.

how come women are seen as overreactive to dumb things when men literally need FOR MEN written on soap before they can use it
every time I see this it gets reblogged
Female privilege is getting to claim a headache to avoid sex.
Female oppression is having to claim physical illness to avoid sex because men won’t take a simple fucking “no” for an answer.
Female oppression is men being so entitled that they think being denied sex is oppressive.
a dystopia where in order to have some semblance of decent human rights you have to fit into a set of specific criteria based on things such as race, gender, sexuality, and income, the ideal combination of which is met only by a small portion of society
