Another reason to hate read thought catalog

"Men generally do not mind a woman who can be ‘one of the guys’, per se. But not at the cost of her femininity. It is a complete turnoff to hear a women swear excessively, drink beer from a can, smoke cigarettes and be openly vulgar, violent and over sexual. This isn’t Sons of Anarchy. Ok, you get our jokes and you are not offended by our crude male behaviors, but the key word there is male. Women should act feminine, not masculine."

I love how this fuckhead starts this paragraph like he’s David Attenborough, objectively discussing how men work.
Bruh stop talking on the behalf of all men.
This guy needs to go chill in the 1940s or stop breathing.
Telling women to jump through the hoops of “femininity” does not a happy society make.

"What should we tell our daughters? To wear longer skirts, avoid going out late and move in groups? Never to accept drinks from a stranger, and wear shoes you can run in? Or should we work to create a world where our daughters are safe and respected as our sons ; a world where they’re not seen as prey, nor living with a one-in-five chance of becoming the victim of a sexual offence?
I’d tell my daughter to ignore the message that her looks are all she is, or that men value her for her breast size and sexiness. I’d tell her to define herself by her own parameters and nobody else’s – not to me a tomboy or a “girly girl”, but whoever she chooses to be. I’d tell my daughter that there’s nothing right or wrong about any career path she might choose, from nursing to engineering to bringing up a family. I’d teach her about generations of brave, inspirational, ground-breaking women whose names she wouldn’t find in her history books. I’d tell her not to let her dreams be dented by old stereotypes about women “having it all”, but to look for a partner, if she should choose to have one, who would shoulder their fair share of the domestic and caring burden.
I’d tell her it’s not weird or wrong if she loves somebody of the same gender, or identifies with a different gender than the one she was born with – what’s strange and unnatural is a society that still struggles to accept this after having centuries to get used to this idea.
Perhaps most important of all, though, are the things I’ll never tell my daughter: “That’s not for girls”, “Take it as a compliment”, “Don’t rock the boat”, “That’ll go straight to your hips”. I won’t tell her that “beauty is on the inside”, but question a world that tells her she must be beautiful in the first place, when beauty pales altogether in comparison to passion."
