In 2020, every man is an ally. Every man is innocent. Every man practices consent perfectly. They “hear” us, they “see” us... but they have nothing to apologize for.

They acknowledge that sexual violence happens all the time, but no one they know is a perpetrator.
They want to change the culture, but the culture hasn’t influenced them at all. They are perfect.
They believe women, but the ten women who say they were victimized by them are lying.

We shouldn’t blame victims, but every accusation should be viewed with scrutiny.
They long to be held accountable, but here’s a 1000 word statement on how they never did anything bad to anyone ever.
I don’t care about your allyship anymore. It’s useless. You’re with us until you have to self-reflect. You fight for us until someone you’ve hurt decides to fight for themselves. Rape culture is all around us, you say, but you’re as pure as snow.
You know what would have given me the slightest bit of respect for Biden? If in this statement, he at least acknowledged the pain and discomfort he’s caused multiple women. If he acknowledged that his behavior makes Tara Reade’s claims sound credible.
But we get a sermon on VAWA & It’s On Us, which benefitted BIDEN politically. VAWA didn’t come out of the goodness of his heart. But that’s how little these male allies think of us. They think we can be bought and sold by gestures instead of real accountability and real healing
I’m so sick of male allies. I’m so sick of “good men” who see that men hurt women all the time, but never want to acknowledge the raised first they’ve held towards us.
I’m so sick of men who want to leave their catcalling days behind them, their slut-shaming ways behind them, their victim blaming ways behind them, their stealthing days behind them, their “put more sugar in the punch” days behind them.
I’m done. Done with y’all coming to the table with your hands outstretched and your mouths agape, going “who me?”

Yes, YOU. You and you and you and you and you.
I cannot believe I have to say this, but do not DM me with admissions that you have sexually assaulted women in the past, especially if I don’t know you. That shit is triggering, I’m not your confessor, and my DMs are not the place for you to do this work.
