“Men are afraid women will laugh at them. Women are afraid men will kill them.”
Margaret Atwood (via needasecondskin)
I don’t think this is a Matwood quote, but it’s good nonetheless.
One of my friends was venting at me about girls once. He went on and on about how he didn’t think he could get in a relationship again, and how much past relationships had hurt him. They’d cheated on him or left him or whatever. All things they did with themselves. You know, things that suck to go through but no reason to stop relationships forever really. And nothing that really touched him, affected his self.
And it’s like I’ve been sexually assaulted on dates on a number of occasions, or had guys say emotionally abusive things to me throughout the course of a relationship. Had guys ignore safewords or introduce edgeplay stuff with no negotiation in the middle of play. I’ve had guys tell me they’ll use a condom when I was too drunk to move and then go ahead and not, and I couldn’t do shit about it. And that’s no where near as bad as what other people, women or otherwise, go through.
And there’s all these guys who think being cheated on is like this worst thing ever in a relationship.
