#YesAllWomen

@TweetOfNee
Because it takes a hashtag to bring to the surface the extent of what I do subconsciously to protect myself. Every single day. #YesAllWomen

@TweetOfNee
Because our hypervigilant managing, scanning, and strategizing in attempts to shake subhuman social status doesn’t work. #YesAllWomen

@TweetOfNee
Because 5000 years of women being seen as sexual property will not end by women continuing to be programmed into staying small. #YesAllWomen

@TweetOfNee
Because seeking justice regarding sexual assault being ‘feminized’ (aka, weak) hurts men who are victimized by women as well. #YesAllWomen

@TweetOfNee
Because my abortion was none of your fucking business. #YesAllWomen

@TweetOfNee
Because I’ve learned the best course of action while being leered at on the bus is to steep silently in the discomfort #YesAllWomen

@TweetOfNee
Because my guts turned inside out when a man called out to me on the street to ask for directions last week. #YesAllWomen

@TweetOfNee
Because women who beat on men get away with it. #YesAllWomen

@TweetOfNee
Because the only way to be seen and heard so often correlates to leveraging corrosive sexist double standards. #YesAllWomen

@TweetOfNee
Because my boyfriend of 3 years empathized with my rapist. #YesAllWomen

@TweetOfNee
Because incorrect response to sexism keeps good loving fathers away from their kids. #YesAllWomen

@TweetOfNee
Because “I’m someone else’s already” is so often the only rejection that works. #YesAllWomen

@TweetOfNee
Because breaking compliant silence to stand for myself is seen as ever so stunning. #YesAllWomen

@TweetOfNee
Because saying to a stranger in response to #YesAllWomen “Bitch, no one wants to harm you.” somehow makes sense to people.

@TweetOfNee
Because my ex’s response to my boundary-insulting rapist continues to include “But at least he is not malicious” #YesAllWomen

@TweetOfNee
Because men who say they ‘agree’ with #YesAllWomen still stay silent, blind, and defensive to the reality they are perpetuating.

@TweetOfNee
Because former guy ‘friends’ saw me first and foremost as a potentially accessible vagina, don’t see anything wrong with rape. #YesAllWomen

@TweetOfNee
Dear #YesAllWomen defensive reactors: Consider that if there were no truth in it, it wouldn’t fucking bother you.

@TweetOfNee
You’re right. How dare I challenge your blistering sexist arrogance when I was supposed to be helping you deal with my rape. #YesAllWomen

@TweetOfNee
Because I cannot even fathom a partnership with a man that is based on being encouraged to trust my own thoughts and feelings. #YesAllWomen

@TweetOfNee
Honor each others’ boundaries; #rapeculture is not a question of limiting or repressing male sexuality. #YesAllWomen http://clarissethorn.com/2011/01/02/men-dont-deserve-the-word-creep/
