…to some of the ridiculous things dudes have said to me this week, such as “men are objectified/raped/threatened/etc. too!”* and “why don’t you go make your own comics then?” and “that’s just what breasts look like!” and “I’m not creepy for ogling teen superheroes!”
*In retrospect, this should be just that men are objectified too (because seriously it’s SO not the same thing), although I do think the constant dudes popping in over and over to remind us that men are also raped and threatened is counter productive to the larger discussion of rape culture. Women are usually not the ones forgetting that men are raped and threatened. That’s part of the damage of the patriarchy. We all deserve better.
