“You’re mine. I’m yours. That’s how it works.”

My boyfriend of half a year, upon finally confronting him about his constant groping and pinching when I have begged him repeatedly to stop. I’m a survivor of sexual abuse and my father used to do the same thing. Made me feel powerless. (via microaggressions)

Sexual harassment and abuse may be how it works for some people, but not people who are in a loving and equal relationship based on mutual respect.

I see waaaay too many jokes like this on Facebook about the lack of “attractive computer science girls.” I am a female computer science major (in a small private university), and I initially wanted to try to join this group of friends, who are some of the best CS students in the school. Makes me feel ashamed and disappointed.

“I was fully qualified for the job, but they gave it to a black girl.”

White neighbor, in conversation. I felt this person was implying that the black girl wasn’t qualified, or that she only got it out of affirmative action. Why not just say “I was fully qualified, but they gave the job to someone else”? I’m a person of color and I wonder if people think that about me. Made me sad. (via microaggressions)

I’ve had this conversation over and over with white men, and it’s always a black woman. Always. The white guy always says she wasn’t as qualified. I have to say,

“Did you see her resume? And how do you even know she got the job anyway? Were you stalking her?”

These mysterious unqualified black women running around talking the white man’s job don’t exist.

If it makes you feel any better, they’ll say “I was fully qualified for the job, but they gave it to a woman/girl” if a white woman got chosen. So they’re prejudiced against ALL women, not just those who happen to be African-American. (NOTE: That shouldn’t make you feel better.)
