#YesAllWomen: What We Should Teach Boys
The #YesAllWomen hashtag started on Twitter as a result of the 140-page manifesto of the Santa Barbara killer. It detailed his life, his plans and why he decided to go on a murder spree. A good amount of it was him being butthurt about women not wanting to have sex with him.
Anywho, the powerful hashtag really created a space for women to talk about misogyny and how they’ve been affected by it, and has been going on for over 36 hours. Times like this is when Twitter is at its best.
For me, some of the response to the manifesto was troubling and it just highlighted how women are taught how to avoid rape and how to avoid being taken advantage of but men aren’t given enough lessons on how not to rape. And how not to be predatory.
If you think we don’t have a cultural problem on our hands, then you should see some of the tweets women have been getting in response to the #YesAllWomen ones. I can’t even and I am unable to even.
