Being a feminist is kind of like being Bruce Banner.
“My secret is… I’m always sick of this bullshit.”
Following the path on a chilly morning.
you are walking through the woods on a crisp fall afternoon
you find an old broken-down house and explore it with delight
it is a beautiful relic of a bygone age
as the sun starts setting you regretfully turn away from your enchanted find and head for the overgrown path back to town
suddenly you feel the ground beneath you opening up and you fall and fall and fall
you are trapped inside an old septic tank and there is no one around for miles to hear you scream as you drown in ancient poops
as you die horribly and alone your last thought is “oh god why is this happening to me”
IT’S BECAUSE YOU DIDN’T WARN FOR A MAJOR CHARACTER DEATH ON THAT LAST FIC YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE THAT’S WHY

Here is the thing, okay? Coming into a feminist conversation with, “Have you considered that sometimes women acquire free drinks at bars?” is like walking into graduate school during Philosophy finals and saying, “Have you considered that the color blue that I see may not be the color blue that you see?”
Imagine you are the guy who just walked into that Philosophy class and laid that shit down. Imagine the class full of students who have worked very hard and committed themselves and sacrificed to be here, students who have spent several years of their lives learning about this subject. Imagine now their feelings when you go to the head of the classroom with a smirk on your face and demand the professor give you an A for effort. Imagine now that they think you are a douchebag asshole, because they do, and because you are. You are a douchebag asshole because you are obviously so self-centered, arrogant, and completely ignorant of the world around you, that you thought you could walk into a high-level course with no background and no work and say something profoundly simplistic and totally unrelated and also everybody should congratulate you for having done this thing, so brave, so provocative.
You are not asking us a real question. You are simply illustrating, for all to see, your own ignorance. You are saying, “I have not considered the implications of the question I have just asked. I have not taken the time nor effort nor commitment to sit down and ask myself this question. Instead, I have come into your philosophy classroom/office/feminist blog and shat out my question with a smirk, because I believe that my two seconds of thought are worth more than your long-term analysis, because I believe I am worth more.”
