When men find women’s anger amusing, it only serves as a reminder of one thing. He doesn’t take you seriously. He finds solace in the fact that he is bigger and stronger than you. You realize this? That man who thought your anger was “cute” doesn’t think you can be threatening because he thinks he can assault you with ease.


Men aren’t afraid of us screaming in their faces, or passionately debating their bullshit. They are, however, fucking terrified of women gathering and being angry together. They don’t laugh at that, do they?

Oh you mean like when they call the National Guard on a group of women protesting in Virginia?

VIRGINIA GOP STATE SENATE CANDIDATE: A MARRIED WOMAN CAN’T BE RAPED BECAUSE, AFTER ALL, ‘SHE’S IN A NIGHTIE’ | Next Tuesday, Virginia voters will decide whether they want to elect former state Rep. David Black as a state senator. Luckily for Virginians, Black has a substantial record by which to judge him. In 2005, Black proposed investigating all Virginians to see if any Virginians adopting a child were gay. He is also well-known for sending plastic fetuses to lawmakers to advertise his anti-abortion stance. He also fought to allow pharmacies to refuse to sell birth control, or what he called “baby pesticides.” But perhaps Black’s shining moment came when he stood against the prosecution of spousal rape cases in 2002 because, after all, “how on earth could you validly get a conviction in a husband-wife rape when they’re living together, sleeping in the same bed, she’s in a nightie,” he said. “There’s no injury, there’s no separation, or anything.” (HT: Jezebel)

^^I told my husband this - he rolled his eyes, walked back into the kitchen and said that dude is an idiot.
