So, these are my new leggings I got on Sunday. I was really excited to wear them to school the next day. Even though leggings are against dress code I figured I’d be able to slip by without anyone saying anything to me. 

I made it through the day without interruption and many students and teachers complimented me on my leggings. I thought it was a successful day. 

Not until the next night did I hear something that greatly upset me. I was talking to my best friend who is  guy and he told me that Monday (the day I wore my leggings) he was standing outside our weight room waiting on the football coach so he could ask him  question. While standing there, he overheard a guy named Micheal having a rather loud conversation with a couple other football players. Michael is in my 4th period and he always creeped me out a little so I tried to keep my distance. And for good reason. Apparently, this conversation consisted of mainly talking about how” good her ass looked in them leggings.”. Not only was he talking to other boys about my ass but he was straight up BRAGGING about how he was looking at it and how he “just couldn’t stop”. Austin,my best friend and informant, was enraged and stormed off because he was at risk of punching Michael in the face and he thought that would upset me. Honestly, I wish Austin would have knocked him unconscious. I want to kick Michael’s damn teeth in and I’m more than capable to do so. 

I can only assume the Michael does this to other girls as well. what gives him the right to objectify my or any other girl’s body?
It’s not okay. I should be able to wear whatever I want and not be made uncomfortable because creeps like him are unable to control their hormones.

I can’t go to the school and ask for something to be done because no matter what  I say, the ONE THING they will focus on is that I  was breaking dress code.  

I told my mother about this and her response was, "Well maybe you should know better than to wear something skin-tight around a bunch of teenage boys." 

SINCE WHEN HAVE I EVER LET A MAN DICTATE WHAT I, A STRONG INDEPENDENT YOUNG LADY, WEAR. WHAT KIND OF FUCKED UP SOCIETY DO WE LIVE IN?

 Many might think this would limit me, push me down. But I’ll be damned if I don’t feel powerful right now. All this anger inside me is fueling me. 

I will NOT allow my body to be objectified.

I will NOT let a man decide what I wear. 

I am woman. I am a fucking force of nature to be reckoned with and  NO man can stop me.

I am sorry you feel degraded, but he did nothing wrong.

Did he insult you? Did he harm you? Did he harass you? No, in fact, he complimented you. That’s all he did. People can look, and like what they see. As long as there’s no direct physical/verbal assault, there’s nothing wrong with that. Checking out someone is NOT sexual harassment.

On the other hand, I agree with you on your freedom on choice of clothing. You can wear whatever you want.

Complimenting and objectifying are 2 very different things. I know guys and girls look. It’s inevitable. And that’s okay. I do it too. But I strive to make sure that I make no one feel uncomfortable. If I speak to other people about a guy I think is attractive, it has to do with the whole person, NOT a specific part because that, my dear, is objectification and I will have no part in it. He made me extremely uncomfortable and that’s not okay. My feelings are very real and valid and I have every right to feel them. The objectification of any person’s body is not okay. I respect you opinion and thank you for agreeing on my freedom to dress as I please but I hope you understand that this is NOT OKAY.

Yes, in the end what he did is wrong because he made you uncomfortable and that is not okay, and I understand you fear he’s going to harass you or whatever and I’m assuming that is the reason why you’re uncomfortable, but him liking your body and stating that is not wrong. I understand you, and actually am on your side, I’m just so pissed off at this rape culture we all live in. You think that a guy will harm you just because he noticed your ass. That is not okay. You should feel free to wear whatever you want and be comfortable when such comments come, not fear. And even if you’re not comfortable you should be able to tell that and that guy should be sorry and shouldn’t do it again. Also, liking only one part of your body is not objectification either. Going “I like that ass” is not objectification, but “I’m gonna smack that ass” is. 

I hope I made my point, I may be mumbling a little. All I’m saying is unfortunately you’re right and you have to get so mad over this, it shouldn’t be that way, sex shouldn’t be such a taboo

Anonymous asked: so what youre saying is that you support cis people? after all theyve done to oppress you as a "queer" individual?

amazingatheist:

stoppity:

Yes. I do support cis people. Just in the same way that I would support anyone else. If you are born cis, you cannot help that fact. You aren’t born into hatred. Being cis isn’t wrong. At all.

Have I been oppressed by cishet individuals? Absolutely. I’ve had the shit beat out of me all through high school because of my sexuality. I’ve been beaten, abused, held down, denied employment, and raped for who I am. By cisgendered, heterosexual people. But that doesn’t change the fact that my father is cis. My mother is, too. My friends are. My classmates. My roommate. My girlfriend, for fuck’s sake, is cis.

Just because I have been wronged by some, does not give me the right to hate all. I hate some. Not, by any means, all.

I hate those that have wronged me as individuals. As specific people, who have done specific wrong to me. My rapist was cisgendered. But, so is my eight-year-old niece. 

In short, Anon, yes. I absolutely support cis persons. Why? Because being born with uncontrollable traits is not grounds for hatred, under any circumstances. 

Two of the three boys that beat the shit out of me in high school, consistently, were black. Does that give me the right to hate all black men? Absolutely not. Do you see where I’m going with this, Anon?

No matter the circumstances, hating an entire group of people based on immutable traits is wrong. When you do harbor these prejudices, you are no better than those you claim to be fighting.

Did i just read something rational on Tumblr. Doesn’t this violate some law of nature?

before you date a girl with a mental illness, remember: saying, “you’re beautiful” won’t balance the chemicals in her brain.

and don’t fucking say, “i’ll be here for you, no matter what,” if you don’t mean it.

don’t think you’re fixing her by saying, “i love you.” because you’re not

This needs more notes.

This applies to every person you date.

"guess we cant have different opinions on tumblr"

nah son. an opinion is like “orange juice is nasty” or “fall out boy is overrated”

"your gender identity is ridiculous and you dont deserve to have it respected" is straight up bullshit and you should be called out on it

There’s nothing wrong with sex, people.

claireruns:

thechroniclesofrin:

- Having sex every day. 
- Saving sex for your wedding night. 
- Never having sex.
- Having sex with different people.
- Having sex with one person.
- Having sex with a person of your same gender.
- Loving sex. 
- Hating sex. 
- Being loud. 
- Being quiet.

The only thing wrong with sex?

When it’s not consensual.

Because that’s not sex. That’s rape.


Reblogging again because this post is so important.
