Today I was talking with my sister after she visited my parents. She was walking down the street towards their home and some stranger tried getting her attention. When she ignored him he started screaming at her and calling her names. It scared her and when she got to our parents home she told our dad about the incident. Like a dumb scrote, my dad responds to her by saying, "don't piss off my neighbors!!!"
We talked about how our dad NEVER takes our side when we're upset about something. *** I said to her several times, "dad never takes our side and yet he complains that I never talk to him." 🙄
Always remember the first rule of misogyny is women are responsible for what men do. It benefits the patriarchy not to believe women when they speak out even when it's something obvious who is right and who is wrong like what happened with my sister.
When we choose to date men it's important to vet them on whether or not they are sympathetic to you, and other women. If a man you're dating even hints at another man's misogynistic treatment being your fault, it's best to next him. Your safety might depend on it. Your happiness definitely depends on it.
***my parents did their best raising us but they are not beyond criticism. My dad is an MRA and my poor mom is a lost cause living fully in his reality. My sister is pregnant and her situation is vulnerable since she's young and not married. I renewed contact with all of them so my sister has at least one sane family member she can lean on.
If you made it this far I'd love to open up the thread for any time a man in your life took another man's side when he was obviously wrong. Vent away Queens. I love it here for that reason.
