|Feminists:||Hey. We'd like for women to be treated as equals.|
|Society:||Oh sure. You want "equality" but then you expect men to open the door and pay for meals, is that it? That's not equality! That's special treatment!|
|Feminists:||Um, no not really. You don't have to open the door and pay for our meals. We can do that ourselves.|
|Society:||*gasp* What? You don't want men to open doors for you? Why do you hate nice people? No wonder chivalry is dead! You'd yell at a man for just being polite and opening the door for you?|
|Feminists:||No! We're just saying you don't have to do it just because we're women!|
|Society:||And while we're at it, how come you don't protect male victims of abuse and rape, huh?|
|Feminists:||Actually, we think it's really terrible that men are forced to stay quiet about their abuse because they're worried about not being taken seriously. It's this Alpha Male myth that causes it. Men are abused and raped and they're not helped because men are supposed to be tough and able to handle it. This also goes for men not being able to express emotions.|
|Society:||Oh, so you just want men to be a bunch of pansies then, huh? You hate men for wanting to be strong LIKE NATURE INTENDED THEM TO BE. You'll be sorry when you end up married to some weak, simpering fool who likes to talk about his "feelings"!|
|Society:||Also, you can't have equal rights because women aren't aggressive enough to want higher pay and stuff.|
|Feminists:||HOW ABOUT YOU GO FUCK YOURSELF AND THE HORSE YOU RODE IN ON?|
|Society:||Jesus, calm down. No need to be so aggressive.|
|Black guy kills some people.|
|Society:||Criminal.||Muslim guy kills some people.|
|Society:||Terrorist.||Latino guy kills some people.|
|Society:||Criminal.||White guy kills some people.|
|Society:||Mental illness. (lost soul, complicated psyche, quiet loner, misunderstood, frustrated with life, experienced recent, traumatic, life-altering events that set him off; not to mention all the positive descriptors that are attached to him, i.e. intelligent, PhD candidate, honor roll student, etc.)|
mental illness is constantly either demonized or romanticized by society and there is no space in that dichotomy for real people with mental illness to exist without feeling shamed and invalidated and that isn’t fair

Raven Symone’: The pressure of society.
Finally a celebrity who says the real reason
Submitted by iwillloveyouwhenpigsfly
I’ve always loved Raven. I liked her better when she was heavier. I keep trying to show my 4 year old sister “That’s So Raven” because she has darker skin than me (she has a different father) and all the other shows she watches feature stick-thin white girls. I want my sister to grow up without that pressure; without feeling like you should look like the people on TV. One day, she even asked my older sister, “When am I going to be your color?” She’s young; she doesn’t understand all of the natural differences yet. I struggled with self-image as I was growing up and I don’t want her to feel the same thing I did.
