It is physically and emotionally draining to be called upon to prove that these systems of power exist. For many of us, just struggling against them is enough — now you want us to break them down for you? Imagine having weights tied to your feet and a gag around your mouth, and then being asked to explain why you think you are at an unfair disadvantage. Imagine watching a video where a young man promises to kill women who chose not to sleep with him and then being forced to engage with the idea that maybe you are just a hysterical feminist seeing misogyny where there is none. It is incredibly painful to feel that in order for you to care about my safety, I have to win this verbal contest you have constructed “for fun.”

He said “I wouldn’t pull out.” A man I do not know saw images of me and let “I wouldn’t pull out” slip off his fingertips. I wanted to vomit. I felt dirty. I felt like a napkin someone used to wipe chicken grease off of their mouth with. But we ARE just towelettes, right? We’re just here for men to soil. Now matter how hard I try to be seen as a human being I will always have to write things like this. As long as I continue to exist in this body I will have to argue against the notion that it is acceptable for a man to physically or verbally force himself on me. “I wouldn’t pull out” is not a compliment, nor is it attractive. It’s an incredibly trauma inducing statement carrying graphic imagery on its shoulders. It is a statement that fuels the Jezebel archetype; it makes the assumption that I am sexually available to any man so long as I am breathing. It is a statement that fuels rape culture, denying the right to consensual, emotional and protected sex. “I wouldn’t pull out” does not mean “I think you are a beautiful person.” It means “I am aroused by you and anticipate bringing myself to the point of ejaculation with no regard to your health or life plans.” Men need to understand that. Women need to understand that too. This kind of speech is not okay and it is not something you have to accept. You are not a toy existing only for thrills. You’re not a damn napkin.
She just got up and spoke nothing but truth and hopefully deliverance to many women who have been on the other side of such comments.
