"They don’t “accidentally” rape women. They don’t “misread the signals”. Every day, men who pretend that they are incapable of telling that women don’t want them to penetrate their bodies, read hundreds of social signals expertly. They know when to joke about with the boss; when to back down gracefully in a meeting without losing face; when to negotiate hard and when to keep some back for the next deal; they know when to banter with their colleagues and when to be professional. They know when to slap down someone in a pub or a club or on a train and when that would be dangerous – most men, like most women, are very, very good at negotiating social signals."

SO FUCKING DENSE
nothing pisses me off more than when i see libfems say shit like ‘being a woman has nothing to do with having a vagina’ well okay, just dismiss the entire reason we have gender in the first place and socialization and sex based oppression and everything that comes with being a woman. its like gender identity is treated more seriously than these universal issues that affect everyone with a vagina. people are so FUCKING DENSE
