I’m glad to see people taking the #JadaPose hashtag and using it to speak out against rape, rape culture, misogyny, and to condemn the sickos who started the hashtag. This, like the #YesAllWomen hashtag, has become an important hashtag. I’m glad people are changing its purpose. As if we needed any more proof that rape culture and misogyny are real. I’d like to see some MRA try to mansplain this away.

oh ya what were you saying again? No , not all men are murderers. But do normal men who kill when they get rejected have warning labels on their faces? No. So how am I supposed to know that the man I’m on a date with isn’t going to turn violent when I politely refuse to go home with him? How do I know that when I break up with my boyfriend he isn’t going to harass me and refuse the break up completely when there were no signs of previous abuse in the relationship? I simply don’t. 

How do I turn him down nicely without getting murdered? A legitimate question in the misogynistic society we live in ! I understand your previous ignorance, and sincerely hope that now that you are equipped with this information you can educate your friends and others.
