My fauxgressive white dude acquaintance was joking about porn. I let myself go and ranted about men hating women. He came back with the standard “it’s getting better” and “everyone’s equal now” approach. If there is something that pisses me off more than trolls who can’t spell, it’s people believing that things will get better just because, that things will get better even if we all hum and plug our ears. It is these types of people that hinder “things getting better.” So I bulldozed with my hapless acquaintance with facts (the pay disparity between men and women is actually increasing in Australia) and he ran away shocked at my sudden venom. He fell over a chair in haste, and called back over his shoulder “I blame you.”
Dude, when you start waxing lyrical about how “Inara isn’t really a whore, she’s a companion” unlike “the other whores” then I blame you. I blame you for upholding the patriarchy and slut-shaming. Fuck you.
