people cope with things differently

No, I agree 100000%. Men need to stop saying, “I wouldn’t want that to happen to my wife/daughter/sister/mother/etc…” and start looking at it as a crime against a human being that is horrendous. End of discussion. Regardless of their relationship to you, beating someone is unacceptable and unacceptable all on its own. Just find domestic violence, rape, and sexual assault heinous on its own, because it is. Stop justifying why you think it’s heinous in terms of how it offends you because of how different women belong to you, as a man.

The fact that men STILL have to think in terms of themselves when it comes to violence against women does not help. And it’s infuriating. Ray Rice beating the shit out of his wife should upset you because he fucking beat the shit out of his wife, who is a person. A living, breathing person. It should offend you at a cellular level because someone was abused, plain and simple. It doesn’t matter who they are or how you can relate. I don’t need to have a daughter to be mortified. It shouldn’t upset you just because you have a daughter. What if you didn’t have a daughter? Hm? View the act for the absolute terrible and horrific abuse that it is. Period. The end.

Until I started taking my antidepressants, though, I didn’t actually know that I was depressed. I thought the dark staticky corners were part of who I was. It was the same way I felt before I put on my first pair of glasses at age 14 and suddenly realized that trees weren’t green blobs but intricate filigrees of thousands of individual leaves; I hadn’t known, before, that I couldn’t see the leaves, because I didn’t realize that seeing leaves was a possibility at all. And it wasn’t until I started using tools to counterbalance my depression that I even realized there was depression there to need counterbalancing. I had no idea that not everyone felt the gravitational pull of nothingness, the ongoing, slow-as-molasses feeling of melting down into a lump of clay. I had no way of knowing that what I thought were just my ingrained bad habits — not being able to deposit checks on time, not replying to totally pleasant emails for long enough that friendships were ruined, having silent meltdowns over getting dressed in the morning, even not going to the bathroom despite really, really, really having to pee — weren’t actually my habits at all. They were the habits of depression, which whoa, holy shit, it turns out I had a raging case of.

My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

I aspire to be this woman when I’m older. 


This woman was born before women were legally allowed to vote.

So don’t think for a second that she’s joking when she sees you trying to take that right away, Republicans.
