mainstream tumblr feminism may have many glaring faults but it has bred an army of teenage girls who understand the common ways that misogyny is reinforced in society and who know that they’re better off loving their fellow woman than fighting with her and that’s actually pretty damn revolutionary
so i’ve been going to meetings every night to keep me on track to getting sober and staying sober, and its been really hard meeting people. i’ve been such a wreck with my emotions lately and these meetings are mostly men. either guys will try to get with me, which will definitely lead to them abusing how much of a wreck i am, or the guys who could actually help me stay sober and be a new support system don’t talk to me because they don’t want to be creepy. and just about every guy i talk to, creep or not, warns me not to get with guys because guys are creeps! like, fuck man! i just want some fucking help! today i didn’t want to get picked up so i was hanging around the parking lot and just telling people i was waiting for my ride, and one guy noticed i was there for over an hour and he offered to walk me home since his ride didn’t show up for him either. he was 32 and very uncomfortable with the fact that he was hanging around me because he felt creepy. a 32 year old who is not interested in fucking 17 year old girls is exactly what i need in my life right now, but he was afraid to really talk to me. i had so much i needed to let out and just get off my chest that i havent been able to in the same way and i just wish it wasn’t so fucking hard at these meetings to do that.
