SOCIETY: You don’t eat? Anorexic freak!
SOCIETY: You’re a size 4? You’re ‘supposed’ to be a 0!
SOCIETY: You’re an A cup? How old are you, 8?
SOCIETY: You’re a C cup? That’s my mum’s size…
SOCIETY: You’ve had sex? SLUT!
SOCIETY: You haven’t had sex? HAH, you’re frigid!
SOCIETY: You don’t think you’re pretty? Attention seeker!
SOCIETY: You think you’re pretty? Conceited much?
SOCIETY: You believe in gay rights? HOMO!
SOCIETY: You don’t believe in gay rights? Homophobic dickhead!
SOCIETY: You’re depressed? Attention seeker!
SOCIETY: You cut yourself? Still just attention seeking!

SOCIETY: Oh, they were so beautiful, society is cruel!
1. Because a woman brought into this world will inevitably be given pepper spray “just in case.”
2. Because by sixteen, a young girl knows how to avoid being sexually assaulted, while a boy of the same age does not fear sexual assault in the slightest.
3. Because a girl who mocks men is a bitch, and a boy who mocks women is joking.
4. Because a girl who has sex is a slut, and a boy who has sex is a man.
5. Because in a murder, the killer is at fault, but the blame of rape is often put on the victim.
6. Because we teach girls how not to get raped instead of teaching anyone simply not to rape.
7. Because a woman should put more clothes on if her outfit makes a man uncomfortable, because his self control is her responsibility.
8. Because feminists just need to chill out.
9. Because a 22 year old sex-obsessed virgin can murder 7 people, and the problem is that someone should’ve just slept with him.
10. Because not all men are predators, but yes, all women are prey.
