American author, activist, and lecturer Helen Keller, June 11, 1916 (via womenaresociety)
Reminder that Helen Keller was a bad ass, and the fact that people only remember her as an “inspirational” child is really annoying.
It’s not about men or women.
Nobody should ever hit anyone.
Nobody should ever rape anyone.
Nobody should ever murder anyone.
Nobody should ever beat anyone.
Nobody should ever threaten anyone.
Nobody should ever insult anyone.
Nobody should ever make anyone uncomfortable.
Nobody should ever touch anyone without their consent.
Nobody should ever steal from anyone.
Nobody should ever humiliate anyone.
obviously this is all true, absolutely, but when 1 in 3 women worldwide are domestically assaulted/abused in their lifetime, when 400,000 women in England and Wales ALONE are being sexually assaulted every year (and 85,000 being raped), when thousands and thousands of women report sexual harassment and street harassment and threats and when women are disrespected so frequently, it does become something about men and women, it just does. it’s not good enough to skirt around the issue and pretend like gender isn’t relevant, women from all walks of life are quite literally the oppressed majority so no, it absolutely is about men and women, because women still aren’t treated like people, and that needs to be addressed, not avoided
