My name is Chloe, feel free to call me that. I am 21 years old and live in Kentucky in the U.S. I live in constant obsession with numerous things.
Some of those things include but are not limited to: DC comics, Batman, Dick Grayson, Supernatural, Tom Hiddleston, Avengers, Sherlock, The Beatles, Misha Collins, British men, Modern art, video games, and comic books.
We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.
This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.
The whole article sadly hits very close to home.(via rosalarian)
