When men are serious, it’s sexy; it implies a commanding personality, someone who’s in control, someone with a backbone. When women are serious, they are bitches or unattractive, humourless hags, in need of sprucing up and “feminising”. How many times have I heard some of the cleverest women I know being called “feminist bitches” simply because they don’t conform to the “nice” girl image? Or, simply because they ask difficult questions and expect serious answers.
Being Nice (via sashanako)
men are always telling me to “take things less serious.” I feel like if I was a man this would never happen. I’m attracted to strong men, but only the ones who realize my strength makes me no less of a woman.
