A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”
I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”
I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”
…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.

And white feminists still act like they’re some kind of progressive icons
These are the women who white feminists praise, then they turn around and cry internalized misogyny for every Black female artist out there.
Just because someone is both white and a woman that does not make them a feminist. As one of the aforementioned white feminists, I do not consider these women icons or their actions empowering. It makes me sad that every famous white woman is considered a “feminist” just for existing and being popular.

Made a gif set of the entirety of this precious exchange because I wanted it.
I love Bianca. They edit her to be very sassy and seem mean sometimes, but I think they probably left a fair amount of her nice side on the cutting room floor. Glad this moment made it.
hey there electric lady
