And you live and love in pain.
She cries alone at night too often…Only Women Bleed
A man…I loved…told *ME*…what the cause of my actions were without taking me at my word..that I only engage in debate and discussion for self-validation at the expense of other’s feelings as opposed to being unapologetically and often abrasively curious about our world.
That is fucked up.
Yes, I’m gonna say it; that’s objectification–where one is treated as lacking agency and the ability to control actions, whether in a subconscious or purposeful manner.
I’m an autonomous agent of my own actions. Don’t you tell me what are the cause of my own actions.
Don’t put up with this bullshit. Don’t put up with overt OR covert sexism OR objectification in ANY aspect of your life, even when it’s unintended. We’re better than that. Reflect on your words and actions.
