what’s that one ‘social law’ that says “the comments on any article on feminism will invariably prove the need for feminism”
Hahahaha oh my God this is exactly how that asshole reacted when I banned him from the bar and refused to serve him. He sent me a Snap telling me I’m “a miserable cunt that needs to learn how to take a fucking joke,” and that “whatever, women are always over-reacting anyway. I’ve seen it aaaaaaall.”
A fellow female staff member told me that I need to “get over it really quick” because I lost the bar money when I refused to serve him a few days later when he was bold enough to come back.
Emma Watson should not be made to feel ashamed or “bitchy” or anything else for her fantastic speech. Twice, after this bullshit happened I was made to feel like I was an idiot for reacting the way I did. I was made to feel like I was throwing a spoiled temper-tantrum because I would like to preserve my dignity as a human being and not serve a disgusting pig who suggested TO MY FACE that I should be making better use of my time on shift as a bartender by sucking his cock while he downs a few beers.
WHY do I have to feel bad about the way I handled that? Why do I have to suck it up and get over it so that bar can line its pockets with this scumbags money while he continues to live this way because ALL he’s learned about this whole thing is that NO ONE GIVES A FUCK IF YOU TALK TO WOMEN LIKE THAT. Sure, she may be mad, and she may tell you off, but there’ll be no REAL consequences to your actions because fuck it, you’re a paying customer!
I did not over-react. I am not a man-hating feminist who wants to see the male gender wither and die. I will not back down and feel bad about losing my shit on this asshole and refusing to serve him because what I really think these idiots need to learn is that there ARE consequences to their actions. They are defended and forgiven and taught that it’s okay to tell the woman they offended “to get over it you miserable fuck.”
So I suppose… be brave ladies. Stand up for yourself and other women and prepare to get dumped on by morons like these. The important thing is; don’t back down. Fuck sakes.
