To the "cisgender male shaming" poster, respectfully

Posted on Tue, Jan 5, 2016 at 4:00 AM

Its important to recognize that yes, gender shaming is bad, but, gender shaming doesn't just happen to "cis white men", its not often that someone is harmed (to any degree) strictly on the basis of being "cis male", atleast not as often as other gender identities . I think its also important to consider that when men and boys get harmed with respect to their gender its usually because society does not value a man/ boy who is not masculine/ powerful/ alpha. . Im not advocating gender shaming, but if cis-male hurts, then you are only beginning to know the struggle of women and queer folk alike. —<3
