females being anti-feminist

We are a generation of young women who were told we could do anything and instead heard that we had to be everything.

Toxic masculinity hurts men, but there’s a big difference between women dealing with the constant threat of being raped, beaten, and killed by the men in their lives, and men not being able to cry.

Don’t ever compliment me by insulting other women. That’s not a compliment, it’s a competition none of us agreed to.

"it’s a competition none of us agreed to"  I want to give the author of this quote the hardest dap ever. 

(via dynastylnoire)

Women are supposed to be the ones on the balcony, not the ones down below professing their love. We don’t think the female romantic is romantic. We think she is a predator. We think she is desperate, unstable—Fatal Attraction, the cougar, the spinster, the troublemaker. But deep emotion in this age is a radical act.

Have you heard of Ban Bossy? It’s the new initiative from Lean In and the Girl Scouts that’s trying to ban “bossy” and similar words that are used to bring down girls that are ambitious, take risks, and speak up. By changing the way we treat girls who lead, hopefully our generation will someday see more women in leadership roles.
