"Yes, there are going to be men who realize they have been abusers, harassers, and rapists. That is not going to be easy for them to hear. Yes, men are going to realize that the language that is a part of their everyday lives is degrading and violent. It will not be easy change their tongues. Yes, men are going to realize that the economic, political, and social clout they enjoy is the result of thousands of years of repressive laws and customs aimed at ensuring their dominance, and much of that has to do with causing physical harm to women to secure their silence. And that is going to be really, really uncomfortable to hear. The truth often is."

"When I was little, I asked my pastor if
Judas had been in love with Jesus.
He sent me back to my mother early, with
a note for her to explain “things.”
But no matter what anyone said, I couldn’t
be convinced that the Bible
was anything less than a love story.
(I kissed your cheek in front of them all
and in doing so, I think that I
damned the both of us. You,
to be left crucified and bleeding and
paying for my sins. Me, to be left
wandering and wanting and
never to see your face again.)"
— K. Wright, Judas (via chazeatsbrains)
The rape rate of the United States is four times higher than that of Pakistan but you have white people more concerned about saving those “helpless” brown women from brown men in another continent under thinly veiled racism. You don’t care for these women; you only need a reason to justify your racism. On both sides, women continue suffering.
