International Human Rights Activist Michael Simmons offered these words (via Facebook) in response to the May 3, 2014 New York Times’ “Fight Against Sex Assaults Holds Colleges to Account” article. (via kenyabenyagurl)
The violation of women is treated less seriously than the theft of her belongings. From this, we can gather that our physical and mental well-being is not considered to be as valuable as tangible property.
In other words, women are *less* important than objects.

This is one of my favorite quotes about sexualization/objectification vs autonomy of female bodies bc it’s so succinct
there are probably many things worse than that but it’s one of my pet hates, it’s like people winding you up and then pulling the whole ‘calm down!’ thing after
nothing worse than people making you out to be like irrational and emotional and stuff when really they’ve just personally wound you up and been obnoxious and you’re just reacting to that
