women are literally raised to be subordinate and malnourished and live in fear of murder and rape so no i am not going to feel bad for men having to live up to masculinity which were set in place by men to, again, keep women subordinate
you are literally complaining about having the better end of the stick and it makes me sick to my stomach you can choke on your spoon
The Straw Feminist trope is a deliberately created, exaggerated caricature of a feminist that is used to undermine and ridicule feminist movements.
“The Straw Feminist is set up to perpetuate and advance the myth that feminism is no longer needed, that we have arrived at gender equality and anyone who disagrees is quickly demeaned and portrayed as an extremist.”

We as women tend to buy into this habit of self-policing. Self-policing takes the form of cosmetics, hair, losing weight, acting “like a lady” in public, and curbing our own sexual desires. This concept lends to the idea what somebody is always watching us and that somebody knows what it is to be a lady.
Though we can never really pinpoint who that somebody is, or see them, we live in constant awareness that “they” are watching us. There’s a reason that we can’t see them though. The reason being that they aren’t one single person. They aren’t our mother, teacher, our crush. The one watching us is society and society’s social construction of what it is to be female.
Do I like wearing make-up? Yes, I do. But do I like that I feel obligated to wear make-up? Not even a little bit. So, why is it that we go to the gym, we buy cosmetics and do our hair for hours each week?
I think we as women have a choice; we can choose to either suck in our guts and accept the fact that we are under scrutiny, or we can stick out our tongues and ignore the tiny brackets that have been placed on us.
