“Emotions, in my experience, aren’t covered by single words. I don’t believe in ‘sadness,’ ‘joy,’ or ‘regret.’ Maybe the best proof that the language is patriarchal is that it oversimplifies feeling. I’d like to have at my disposal complicated hybrid emotions, Germanic train-car constructions like, say, ‘the happiness that attends disaster.’ Or: ‘the disappointment of sleeping with one’s fantasy.’ I’d like to show how ‘intimations of mortality brought on by aging family members’ connects with ‘the hatred of mirrors that begins in middle age.’ I’d like to have a word for ‘the sadness inspired by failing restaurants’ as well as for ‘the excitement of getting a room with a minibar.’ I’ve never had the right words to describe my life, and now that I’ve entered my story, I need them more than ever.”

If a child is nipped by a dog no one blames them for fearing other dogs.
If a woman is abused, raped, assaulted, beaten, humiliated, degraded by a man everyone blames her for being wary as if she has the innate ability to know which other men will abuse her, no different than a child not possibly knowing which dogs are mean.
Do not talk to me about feminism - a movement started by my sisters for women. Talk to your brothers who abuse, rape, assault, beat, humiliate, degrade and oppress us. That is the best you are able to do. Call out your brothers for their sexism and misogyny no matter how small. Any male “feminist” that attacks a woman for her feminism is nothing but a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Feminism is not about you. Feminism is not about looking after men’s feelings when men are the number one threat to a woman’s life.
I will never, ever preface my feminism with “some men”. It’s not “some men” that abuse, rape, assault, beat, humiliate, degrade and oppress women. It’s “some men” that don’t.
