How Not To Be A Dick To A Call Center Rep

(It helps if they’re kittens, just sayin’)

THIS THIS THIS A MILLION TIMES THIS. why do people get on the phone and act like they lost all their damn sense? don’t rant at me about how glad you are to finally be speaking to a human and then treat me like anything less than a human. I try to afford you the same courtesy, but I do have my limits.

  • Early Feminists:

    Oh hey, we see that you can vote. We would like to vote also. I mean, since most of those laws effect us too and all.

  • Men:

    YOU JUST WANT SUPERIORITY OVER MEN!

  • Mid-century Feminists:

    Hey, that whole thing about how you can have careers and earn a living wage outside the home? Yes that sounds nice, we'd like the option to do that as well.

  • Men:

    YOU WANT A MATRIARCHY, THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT!

  • Late 20th century Feminists:

    Hey we would like to make our own choices about our reproductive health, just like you've always had.

  • Men:

    YOU ARE TRYING TO TAKE MEN'S RIGHTS AWAY!

  • Modern-day feminists:

    Hey, if you could you stop sexually assaulting/harassing us and them blaming us for it, that'd be pretty great.

  • Men:

    THIS IS MISANDRY, MISANDRY I SAY! FEMINISTS HAVE GONE TOO FAR!

  • Feminists:

    Um...

  • Men:

    THE END OF MEN IS NEAR! MALE OPPRESSION IS REAL! THE MATRIARCHAL AGE IS UPON US!

A MAN YELLED “NICE CHEST” AT ME LAST WEEKEND — HAVE YOU GOTTEN A G-RATED CATCALL? 

over at xoJane.

fantaszing asked:

would you consider yourself feminist?

thisfeliciaday:

Yes.

Feminist: One who supports the cause of feminism.

Feminism: The belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities.

Pretty simple to support, huh? Man or woman. I think the only reason a person who believes in equality of the sexes would NOT call herself/himself a feminist is because of people who have distorted the perception of the word as a dirty and shameful label the past few decades. But if you reject the word based on how THEY have shaped the perception of it, in an insidious way, you’re letting them define you. 

Go back to the REAL definition of the word, not THEIR distorted definition, and see if it is something you believe in. And can be proud to call yourself. Man OR woman. And go from there.

Because, if you break it down, if you are NOT a feminist, then you do NOT believe in equal rights for men and women. Is that what you believe? Or is it that you’re rejecting what the label has been distorted into? 

It used to be that “geek” was a dirty word, too. A shameful label. Not anymore, thank goodness. 

"Feminist" needs a transformation like that too. It’s overdue.
