Sexism

Well, been a while sense I wrote in this thing. Can't really say I do it often, don't have much to say I guess xD Though, the reason I'm writing now is more because I have stuff I want to say. A friend of mine posted this video to her facebook and, well, it horrified me. It was in a nutshell, a guy telling a girl that because she was showing skin, it was his right to look and how dare she get offended.

And people agreed with it. The friend posted the video saying, "They make a point. You don't want people to look, cover up."

WHAT THE HELL!? What planet is that okay on? So, a girl can't chose what she wants to wear without worry that people will stare? How are we not saying that the people oogling are the ones that need to change their behavior.

And the best part? All the reasons people defend it boil down to a) "Men can't help but stare." which, bullshit. Men are not the sex craved monsters we like to portray them as that can't control their sexual urges and b) "She was dressed that way, so she was asking for it." Well, hello there rape culture.
