"[M]en come to me or to other feminists and say: “What you’re saying about men isn’t true. It isn’t true of me. I don’t feel that way. I’m opposed to all of this.” And I say: don’t tell me. Tell the pornographers. Tell the pimps. Tell the warmakers. Tell the rape apologists and the rape celebrationists and the pro-rape ideologues. Tell the novelists who think that rape is wonderful. Tell Larry Flynt. Tell Hugh Hefner. There’s no point in telling me. I’m only a woman. There’s nothing I can do about it. These men presume to speak for you. They are in the public arena saying that they represent you. If they don’t, then you had better let them know.

Then there is the private world of misogyny: what you know about each other; what you say in private life; the exploitation that you see in the private sphere; the relationships called love, based on exploitation. It’s not enough to find some traveling feminist on the road and go up to her and say: “Gee, I hate it.” Say it to your friends who are doing it. And there are streets out there on which you can say these things loud and dear, so as to affect the actual institutions that maintain these abuses. You don’t like pornography? I wish I could believe it’s true. I will believe it when I see you on the streets. I will believe it when I see an organized political opposition. I will believe it when pimps go out of business because there are no more male consumers. You want to organize men. You don’t have to search for issues. The issues are part of the fabric of your everyday lives."

Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.

dude: I'm a feminist because I care about women and I know how awful men are!

feminists: I'm glad to hear it, that means you understand that the long history of men disrupting and disrailing feminist spaces and using the label while perpetuating harmful behavior has made women ask men to stop calling themselves feminists and instead focus their efforts to help women on calling out other men.

dude: What the fuck, this is literally one of the most harmful things I've ever seen I can't believe you think I can't SUPPORT EQUALITY just because I'm a man this is just as bad as what men do to you NO IT'S WORSE because you're discriminating against me because of my gender isn't that what feminism is SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT god this is why no one takes feminism seriously.
