Got a Girl Crush On: Cards Against Harassment

In the same upfront, on-the-street, calling to attention ethos as Tatyana Fazlalizadeh’s ”Stop Telling Women to Smile” street art project, Cards Against Harassment to counter what is thought as socially acceptable behavior towards women. 

Minnesota women Lindsey started confronting the strangers that comment on her appearance and films their reactions when she calls them out, and since has gone to make cards to give the would-be “compliment givers” in hopes they’ll think about their actions.

I can only hope I could possibly adopt her level-headedness and mediating skills in situations of affront and being made feel vulnerable and unsafe.

I had to go find this again because of the dress code announcement today.

Yes because minors should wear provocative clothing in a school setting. 

who are they provoking? And why should they have to tailor their perSONAL CHOICES TOWARDS SOME IMMATURE TEENAGE PIAW DUDE?

Okay 15 year old is a minor, minors are still supposed to listen to rules, minors cannot care, or make decisions for themselves by law. Parent, and or adults make rules for minors. In public settings such as school, minors are supposed to dress appropriately, just like adults have to do at work. Adult clothing do not belong on minors because minors are still children and children are not supposed to dress like prostitutes, pimps, gang member’s, and or anything distracting to a modest setting. 

If minor wears those types of clothing the parents aren’t doing a great job parenting their CHILD.

So. Let me get this straight.

You are saying that, until you reach a certain age, you should dress like a conservative Cinderella? That girls under 18 must aLWAYS OBEY THE RULEZZ OF DA OLDER PPLZ CUZ DEY KNOW BEST??? No. A girl has a right to her body.

No when you’re a kid and living under mommy and daddy’s roof you’re supposed to listen to the rules. Same thing with school, you’re in a place where adults are in charge of you listen to the rules. Guess what if you don’t like the rules and think you’re grown, you can get out of mommy and daddy’s house, and drop out of school and make your own rules. 

I don’t know about you and everyone else on this site but I was raised with “till your ass get grown you can do whatever you want” But I guess tumblr never had parents who whipped some sense into you entitled people. 

Ah, yes. *Mother Knows Best from Tangled plays in the background.* You hope that we were BEATEN for enjoying wearing clothing that wasn’t 100% modest. Thank you. I have no time for people who think that girls who are underage should cater to the wants of people. People who, FYI, are not directly affected in any way by their choice of clothing. Thank you

No not beaten literally but figuratively, being taught to learn how to follow the rules whenever it is given to you. You don’t like the rules a certain school, parents, or job gives then move to another school, move out of your parents house, or find a new job. If your 15 year old girl wanted to wear booty shorts because she wanted to. You would be okay with that, being how she is wearing adult clothing that is much older for her? 

I would be okay with her wearing things THAT SHE WANTS TO WEAR. I mean it’s NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS. What would happen if these people wore “adult” clothes? Really I mean why would it matter to you? Would it be “suggestive”? Would it “distract others”? Would it “detract” from her beauty? Well guess what pal THATS NOT HER FUCKIN PROBLEM. It’s really not the business of her parents or anyone what she CHOOSES TO WEAR ok buddy

Of course you are because you’re a spoiled brat with no understanding of discipline and propriety. She can wear what she wants to wear once she is old enough to buy her own clothes and pay for her own rent. But even then she will still have to follow a certain dress code, provided she has a job that is worth a s*it.

While she continues to live with mommy and daddy and uses a computer to bitch on Tumblr bought by mommy and daddy, nobody gives a flying blork what she wants or doesn’t want. She is a minor. She doesn’t have a voice. She doesn’t get to decide anything. The only thing she can do is wear what is provided by her parents, eat the food provided by her parents, sleep on a bed provided by her parents, and go to school. Maybe whine in her diary, provided by her parents, about how mean her parents are. That is what children do.

what do I say to somebody who tells me that I, as a minor, do not have a right to my own body

that my opinion is useless

that things that affect ME and pretty much ONLY ME should be decided by my parents

and I’m willing to bet that you’re against me wearing the hijab too. Against me doing something that I want to do, for my religion.

How do I even respond to this colossal assholery

what do I say to somebody who tells me that I, as a minor, do not have a right to my own body

That’s a whole load of nothing. What does that even mean? You want to have a right to dress like a slut? 

Oh my goodness! Call the waaaambulance for the poor oppressed minors who have to listen to their parents and do what they are told. What a horrible existence. I’m not interested in your opinion. Get out of your parent’s house and be somebody, then I might care about what you have to say. 

Oh, look who’s sexualizing a minor.

I told you, you are done here.  You are not to respond to her anymore.

You are an adult, looking at a conversation with a minor, and thinking to yourself that the best idea here is to engage and attack said minor, instead of doing the responsible adult thing here and realizing that this line of conversation is inappropriate for you to be having with a minor and then backing the fuck off.

That’s the thing you are not getting here, you are the adult.  It is your responsibility to back off.  It is your responsibility to see when the conversation has become inappropriate and to just stop.

Children are not inherently sexual, so she cannot “dress like a slut” even if there were such a thing.  You are a predator.  You should be kept away from children forever because you do not understand your responsibility here, nor how you are being inappropriate.

Last time, if you have anything to say on this subject, regardless of whether or not she replies to you, you are to direct your responses to me.  Do not reblog from her, reblog from me.

You want to talk about minors and opinions?  How about you start acting like an adult and stop engaging in this sort of conversation with minors.

I was going to stay out of this, but let me share this. My daughter who has developed early now feels uneasy in public and feels the NEED to cover herself up.

Why? BECAUSE THE WAY GROWN MEN STARE AT HER MAKES HER FEEL UNSAFE AND UNCOMFORTABLE. GROWN MEN ARE SEXUALISING MY PRE-TEEN REGARDLESS OF WHAT SHE WEARS.

Clothing is not the issue here  - which is what has been re-iterated over and over. What IS the issue is grown men (and women) sexualising CHILDREN.

when we talk about women in refrigerators it’s not always something super literal

i don’t imagine in writers room across the globe they’re all sitting there like “well we’re out of ideas let’s fridge another one” (but maybe they do i have no idea)

but what’s happening consciously or unconsciously writers are deciding that women are more valuable dead then alive. this goes way back. this is poe saying there’s nothing more poetic than the death of a beautiful woman. this is a dozen pre raphaelite paintings of ophelia drowning because they found her suffering erotic. this is the first reaction to laura palmer’s body being found being, “she was so beautiful.”

fuck this. fuck this.

i’m sick of writers getting passes. fuck this. our strong women are taken from us. we don’t get survivors. we don’t get triumph. women get chopped into artistic little pieces for the male heroes to choke own because we’re more valuable this way. because this way you don’t have to worry about our hopes and fears and opinions because we’re dead and dead women tell no tales. they can’t speak out against injustice because men took their tongues. and they think it’s beautiful. death, the ultimate passivity, the ultimate waiting room, is the most beautiful thing of all. there’s nothing more poetic than the death of a beautiful woman.

women matter. they matter when they are living. not listening to women while they’re still breathing is a failure and should not be regarded as anything else. it is a failure with very serious effects


#it’s a combination of this I think and the desire to see men punished #women are punishments the same way they are rewards #you love your hero? give him a beautiful girlfriend #you want to see him punished? or you want to see him in pain? or you need to motivate him towards your story? #take that woman away #kill her brutally and make it his fault #make him feel it #it’s because men are the Subject and women are the Object #men are the Self and woman are the Other #they don’t put themselves in a woman’s shoes because they are quite literally unable #they don’t see women as people or as fully realized characters so they are fully comfortable killing them off because it very much does not matter to them #maybe they feel a pang of sadness #but it’s the hero’s sadness they feel #they mourn his loss not her death #they feel empathy for his pain not her death #so much of the time she does not even rate consideration as a factor #and it’s fucking disgusting
