so this is what i ended up with for the “make your audience angry” assignment
i dont know about ya’ll but that phrase pisses me right the hell off
Side tip: if anyone ever grabs your hair like the above, clamp one hand HARD down on your scalp where the hair is coming out (think of how you try to immobilize your hair when brushing tangles out so it doesn’t hurt as bad, only do so at the scalp and not further down the hair). Then use your other hand to start hitting the other person (go for the face!) and blocking any blows they may try to make with their free hand. You can also step into them (which removes the tension on your hair) and start throwing your knees into their groin, stomach, kick the side of their knee, etc.
The reason hair-pulling works is A) it HURTS and B) it’s an effective handle, especially because your instinct is going to be to pull away. But reduce the pain and the tension on the hair and you have more room to work with until the other person lets go, at which point you can run like hell or otherwise defend yourself as needed.
I have long hair… AND A PENIS, this kind of this doesnt just effect friggin females! Hell, 90% of the people I’ve been abused by (sexually or physically), were girls.
Stop perpetuating sexism instead how about we teach CHILDREN to treats others how they want to be treated? Oh wait, we already do and its not very effective, so how is the sexist notion of “teaching BOYS to be better” gonna help? I mean do people even think of the consequences of this? I have first hand experience of being physically abuse by 3-5 girls regularly during middle school, because I wasnt allowed to defend myself, i left that group the following year, but only after a year of physical and emotional abuse which caused suicidal thoughts in a fucking 13 year old, so if that was the result of “never hit a girl” what do you think this gender demonizing will do for future generations? Literally, think of the children!
Oh, but what do I know? im part of the patriarchy, lets just teach boys to be better, because they are demons and girls are angels, and yes, that is exactly what’s implied by saying “teach boys to be better” or “teach boys not to rape”, which btw, is totally offensive to someone who was raped and molested by a girl.
I know you probably weren’t trying to be sexist, but what else do you call demonizing an entire gender based on a minority of its demographic, especially on an issue that transcends gender???
