- not all men -
And a flood of advice.
As if we don't already know.
Wonder when they'll teach their men not to rape.
Not all men, you say.
Then why do we have to keep all of them at bay?
You attention seeking feminist, you yell.
Kind sir, you seem to have misunderstood my statement.
Men get raped too.
Yes, and I understand them more than you do.
Feminists are trash, they just wanna while away and do nothing.
Hush, cuz you spewing hatred isn't helping anybody.
Not all men, but we have to be on alert everytime we step out.
Not all men, but we cannot talk to a stranger without shitting our pants out.
Not all men, but when has a girl lived without fear?
Not all men, but every girl has been harassed, no matter what she wears.
Dear not all men, you don't know how it feels, living every second on the edge.
Dear not all men, do more than taking another pledge.
Come at me when the world's safe for us.
Until then, just hush.
We're not even safe in our homes.
And you say, not all men are assholes.
Not all men are trash.
Yeah, and not every feminist is a lazy ass.
# Dear men, stop teaching us how to stay safe. Trust us, we know how to be safe, we've been doing it for our entire fucking lives. Start respecting women and teach those around you to be respectful of women, too. Not bcz we're women, but bcz we're humans, just the way you are. By saying that you're not one of *them*, you're not relieved of the responsibility of what's happening around you. Chances are, you're not that great. Cuz only women around you can tell whether you respect them or not, not you.
