Boys as young as 13 ask for nudes and call me "slut", 18 year old boys try to extort me by threaten to alter my public photos and post them on other sites, 15 year olds ask if I want C***. I see these young men as kids - they were not BORN with this behaviour, they were TAUGHT. These young men might or might not grow up to be abusive.
What do I want? I want the same children to say the following 70 years from now: "Guys demanded girls to send nudes from nowhere? But that's so weird, why did they think they had the right to decide over women like that?" or "Men prevented women from having abortions ? But why?" or "Rapists just got away with it? That's sick!!". I want them to not even BELIEVE this used to happen. I want them to think they are so much better now.
This is a serious problem. If they can be indoctrinated into being rapey, abusive and controlling - they can be indoctrinated into being decent human beings. Why not in school for example? By then I wish that the school system is truly representing equality and has peoples well being in mind.
I REFUSE to say "not all men" because we all know that the "not all men"-men wants a pat on the shoulder for not having raped someone. Maybe they even raped someone and still want that pat. They want a pat on the shoulder for being ok with women having some rights but not quite as much as they do. They think the rights we do have are thanks to them and that we should be thankful towards them. Mens violence, dehumanization of women and abuse of power have to STOP.
