Better Than A Man

When Society tells you that YOU, A WOMAN, have to be careful:

1. How you dress

2. Where you go

3. When you go there

and

4. How to act when you get there 

BECAUSE YOU MIGHT GET RAPED, Society is also telling you that YOU HAVE TO BE BETTER THAN A MAN. 

You have to be the one who takes the high road, because those poor men, they can’t be expected to CONTROL THEMSELVES. Heavens no. The best solution, the easiest solution, is to put all the responsibility on YOU, A WOMAN, to make sure that you don’t get raped or assaulted while going about your daily life. 

A man can get shit-faced drunk, but YOU, A WOMAN, must maintain strict control of your faculties at all times, otherwise YOU WERE ASKING FOR IT. I mean, what’s a man supposed to do when there’s a drunk girl around, right? If he chooses to rape you, well it was hardly even a choice, was it?

YOU, A WOMAN, must dress modestly at all times, otherwise YOU WERE ASKING FOR IT. What’s a poor helpless man supposed to do when there’s a girl around wearing jeans and a hoodie and sneakers? How is he supposed to resist that?

YOU, A WOMAN, must not go out alone at night in certain areas. Or maybe any areas. Because a man might be outside at the same time. But if YOU, A WOMAN, do not have a black belt in martial arts, or a weapon of some kind, well, that’s your own fault then, isn’t it? I mean, YOU WENT OUTSIDE BY YOURSELF AFTER DARK, WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU? DID YOU HAVE YOUR HAIR IN A PONYTAIL? DON’T YOU KNOW HOW STUPID THAT IS?

YOU MUST BE BETTER THAN A MAN. YOU ARE HELD TO A HIGHER MORAL STANDARD. Men will not be held responsible for their own behavior. They are poor sad monkeys who can’t help themselves.

If this is the level of personal responsibility men have been allowed to abdicate, I’m not sure how they even feed or dress themselves. Tell me again why they are running the world?
