Everyone following me needs to watch this video. It is a short video about Male Entitlement in North American culture. It is absolutley disgusting and shocking. I can’t believe that these things have happened in such public spaces and no one stepped in to stop them.

(via captaincadet, atoxique)

same.

this is a terrible thing, but this is the reason that sometimes i’m really glad i’m not pretty. but that doesn’t mean i think any of this is okay, it just means that i would probably be faster to step in than to hang back for fear of that being turned on me. there is one woman who actively fights back (until she realizes how outnumbered she is). if only one person had joined her, maybe it would have made others realize how wrong this was.

i hope every woman who has had to experience this has someone near her to remind her that this is not okay, and that she shouldn’t have to put up with abuse like that. i can’t imagine being alone and experiencing that…

edit: i’m canadian and have never seen anything as severe as this in person, but i don’t think that canada is immune to this sort of thing. fyi.

I’d never seen this video or heard of these incidents, but this is appalling.

I am horrified and disgusted. I hope everyone of those men who participated get shot in the fucking face, and this is coming from someone who doesn’t promote violence. 

 Disgusting.

It’s important to note that the effects of Western Male Entitlement issues aren’t confined to the west. I experience the effects of it when I walk around as a Western woman in India,  where many men’s exposure to Western girls is through Hollywood’s bullshit macho fantasies about us and so I am expected to behave similarly. We have no one but sexist culture, those who propagate it, and our enforcement of it upon other peoples to blame.

You know what really upsets me?  That we need to have videos made to draw attention to this.  Because stuff like this DOES happen every day, women ARE treated like this all the time.  And the fact that something needs to be done to tell people this is a bad thing is just sad.

And I feel the need to point out: it’s not just hip hop videos and music that this idea is espoused in.  Other forms of music, especially rock, do more than their fair share to re-enforce this behavior.

I’m not a girl in a music video.  I DON’T exist just as a nameless random body you can get off to.  I don’t want to be treated like that.  And when I TELL YOU not to treat me like that, I want some damn respect from you, not comments on what a bitch I am. 

If demanding to be seen as a person is being a bitch?  Then yes, world.  I am a bitch.

This video is why I hate people.

this made me extremely uncomfortable. this is why i’m a hermit.

I watched all of the clips earlier and it still horrifies me.

 2011 and we have miles to go.

Dig this imagine each of these lands as actual countries. Think of what they would have been, Think of the diversity of culture, history, never forget these people &amp; what happened to them. 

 Depressing.

I find it interesting that if terrorists put a chemical in the food supply that killed a million people, it would be called a great crime against humanity, and we’d probably bomb some nation into dust in retaliation. But when a U.S. food corporation puts chemical additives into the food that ultimately kill a million people through heart disease, cancer, obesity and diabetes, nobody seems to notice.
