over load of cuteness
This is precious
Silence means No. Making someone too scared to reject your advances is non consensual. Ask for consent!
March 1 marked the launch of the Transgender Month of Action and kicked off an historic campaign to educate and encourage unions to bargain for trans-inclusive healthcare benefits among their memberships, labor councils, and state federations. Conceived during the Transgender Caucus at this year’s Creating Change Conference in January, the campaign is sponsored by Pride At Work, SEIU’s Lavendar Caucus, the Transgender Law Center, the National Center for Transgender Equality, and the Center for American Progress. The Transgender Month of Action will consist of events across the United States this month in ten cities, including Miami, Atlanta, D.C., New York, Chicago,Minneapolis, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, and Portland.
“boys will be bo-“
*punches you in the face*
bOYS WILL BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS LIKE EVERYONE ELSE
anon asks “what about the double standard, what if it were a gay man catcalling at another gay man or a grrrl to grrrl. Would the reaction still be to inflict pain and violence”. Anon asks “in a time of real fear and danger, of course fight or flight, but “fucking somebody up” just because they’re idiots is something I’d rather not”. Anon says, “all you give is negativity and no unity”
::generally speaking, its usually male bodied people who cat call and victimize other folk. Most of my own explanations I tired to use gender neutral terms and didn’t completley subjectify that only men could be the harassers. If someone, anyone, regardless of sex / gender / identity is making it a not safe space for me, That issue should be addressed. I’ve been harassed by other womyn, it happens. If you are victimizing someone else, you need to be confronted.
::what makes you think I’m not angry that I live in a system built buy men, ran by men. I will always feel oppression in some way or another. How do i react to the unacceptable behavior of someone who believes its okay to disregard me as a humyn, so “fucking somebody up” or causing a stir at the very least should be expected. When you say it’s okay to react in a “time of real fear and danger” completley disregards my experiences with sexism. Why are you deeming my own experiences of threat as real danger or lesser danger. It’s not you who experiences the things i do. You’re telling me, “well if you feel threatened to so-and-so degrees then its acceptable to act in aggression. But if its something so petty as a catcall, there’s no need to retaliate to something so small.” Do you not understand catcalls, gawking and harrassing are all oppressive Regardless how small or petty you think it is. It’s not okay for other people to think treating others in such a way is ever OKAY.
::anon said, “just because they’re idiots who don’t understand me as a womyn and only see me for my tits and ass , I’d rather not (resort to violence)” you’re giving in to the patriarchy when you justify these acts of sexism. Don’t ever let anyone disregard you as a humyn. Don’t let anyone ever just see you as body parts. When you become neutral or okay about someone treating you that way you are actively supporting the patriarch. You’re worth more than that, open your eyes, anon.
::anon says, “all you give is negativity and no unity” I will never want to unite with someone who thinks its okay to belittle a minority. If that’s not self explanatory, hit the books, do more research. If that’s not self explanatory, I’m sorry you live in such an oblivious world.
Then they have no right to expect anything more than the bare minimum required from the employee.
And no right to be asking for experience
Especially if it’s a massive corporation
