just casually stalked my own tumblr since I made it almost exactly a year ago.
obviously it made me think about how much I’ve changed since then, but mostly it made me think about how much I’ve changed since I started college.
remember how one time I thought having a women’s center was an outdated concept? remember how I thought dan savage was a liberal hero? remember how I thought any girl who wanted to spend time painting her nails or talking about boys was probably stupid? poor misguided past erin. you were a giant dickwad.
I mean I guess I knew that some people thought stuff like this but coming across it in my own internet ramblings (which, yes, okay, those internet ramblings involved googling misandry) is just jarring and sad-making.
Except maybe I have this all wrong and this dude just super sucks at understanding song lyrics? And who knows, that might be right because Pink’s You Make Me Sick is on this list and that song is about being attracted to a dude and fucking said dude even though you don’t want to be attracted to him and I just can’t really see how that could ever be construed as misandry except that Pink is like, angry sometimes in the video? Like, the lyrics make it pretty clear that this dude is being creepy/not okay and Pink STILL bangs him (or at least wants to and makes out with him in the video) so really this should be a song of hope for creepy dudes everywhere and not on misandry blacklists.
