These are forms of male aggression that only women see. But even when men are afforded a front seat to harassment, they don’t always have the correct vantage point for recognizing the subtlety of its operation. Four years before the murders, I was sitting in a bar in Washington, D.C. with a male friend. Another young woman was alone at the bar when an older man scooted next to her. He was aggressive, wasted, and sitting too close, but she smiled curtly at his ramblings and laughed softly at his jokes as she patiently downed her drink. ‘Why is she humoring him?’ my friend asked me. ‘You would never do that.’ I was too embarrassed to say: ‘Because he looks scary’ and ‘I do it all the time.’

Women who have experienced this can recognize that placating these men is a rational choice, a form of self-defense to protect against setting off an aggressor. But to male bystanders, it often looks like a warm welcome, and that helps to shift blame in the public eye from the harasser and onto his target, who’s failed to respond with the type of masculine bravado that men more easily recognize.

Why it’s so hard for men to see misogyny (via ethiopienne)

Merp, I know thinks have kinda gotta out of hand here on the blog lately. Feel like I don’t have any original content anymore. I do have pictures from Yellowstone I could post… But otherwise I’ve just been busy with work, and when I get home and on my days off I feel so socially drained that I don’t want to talk to anyone. Working with the public can be difficult :/ Anyway, I’ll be back in Michigan in a few weeks so look for some more OC then.

Loves, Gen.

Aw gee, look, another woman sacrificed for the sake of MAN-PAIN and “story development”!

This fucking sucks, and there’s so much wrong with it I don’t even know where to begin.
